Hello again, gentlemen and statistically rare ladies. If you saw Monday's recaps you already know that ScottyG and I are exchanging days this week, but I figure it bears repeating for those who may have missed a day or wonder why exactly their cheese has been moved. To anyone who thought this might make me start doing the recaps earlier in the evening... are you serious?



*-A-goddamn-men, Megastryke. Everyone who has ever written a word here should read this.
*-PedroVay2003 responded to the NIMF's article in a reasonable, rational way. I hope others follow his example.
*-Qraze nails this. "This is a masterpiece of poop thrown by a monkey." Remember, not all topsauce posts are good.
*-Nick Chester got some fan mail today!


A-JT706 has a gift for metaphor and puts it to full use in this analysis of Watchmen.
S-Gemsi posted the EU game releases coming out this week.
A-Tsunamikitsune picked up Phantom Dust. and recommends you give it a second chance.
P-Bwark-Kupo is making a game out of Failcast. To tide people over, he released a smaller game, Necros Ball. If you win the Failcast game... you win. But you failed. But you won at failing. But you won. But you still failed. But </SCANNERS>
A-KarioMart was retro before retro was cool.
A-SilverDragon wrote at length about the scourge of spawn campers in Killzone 2.
M- BulletMagnet's Monthly Musing is on the minigame in FF8 that became an obsession: Triple Triad.
A-Modern Games are Like Giant Text. Whoops, I mean breasts.
S-Dimly's Power Trip series gets its second installment with this look back at the shotgun in Resident Evil 2.


W-Seigfreid received the totally radtacular Bionic Commando lunchbox he won in the RetroforceGO! contest a little while back. I want a zombie repellent sandwich. >_<


E-Dtoid Australia will be having a party this Saturday in honor of Destructoid's 3rd anniversary. Take some pictures, guys.
E-JT706 would like to start up a new NARP group in the tri-state area near New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Delaware. What say you, Dtoid army?
F-In lieu of RFGO! Topher and Stella hosted a Puzzle Fighter tournament. That kicks ass. Not as much as a new episode, but hell, it beats a hard kick to the face.
F- Takeshi posted the info for the official Destructoid KZ2 clan.


N-Unangbangkay beat the front page with pictures of the unlockable fur bikini in Resident Evil 5.
R-Bulletmagnet extensively reviewed King of Fighters 98: Ultimate Match on the PS2. I've said it before, it's a good year to be a fighting game fan.
R-Tubatic gave us his first impressions of Madworld. I'm kinda glad people have been avoiding the obvious What's black and white and red all over? joke.
T-A very in-depth look at the history of the Street Fighter series by Cloud-1409.
R-AlexanderShen posted some impressions of the demo for Wheelman. I like the cartoons, it adds a lot to your posts.
R-Shin Oni reviewed Ken Fighter IV. Tongue firmly implanted in cheek.
R-Jonathan Holmes gives some impressions of Madworld. Looking forward to a full review soon.
N-Jonathan Ross (no, not that one) apparently leaked the existence of Fable 3 via Twitter.
N-Adam Sessler said a couple of unkind things about Resident Evil 5. EVERYBODY PANIC


A-AlexanderShen just started Bioshock, and made a neat little four-panel comic strip to commemorate the occasion.
A-Grumpyturtle continues to post his awesome game-related work doodles. I think my favorite in this batch is at the end.
F-This isn't really culture, but that's the best fit. RiotMonster watched WCG: Ultimate Gamer so you don't have to.
L-Vexed Alex has some harsh words for the writers of superhero comics.
A-Togail is back with another spectacular piece of game-related art. This is the final sketch of the Leviathan from FF8.
S-Diverse unboxes the RE5 collector's edition. Good stuff.



R-PopCap is offering Peggle for $5 this month. Most crack dealers give you the first taste for free.
R-Faith is selling some non-perler bead stuff.
C-Good try, but the "journalising" you did isn't all that hard to figure out.
C-I think this guy's new. I get the gist of what you're saying, but it's a little stilted and hard to read. Read it to yourself a couple of times before you make it live, you'll be amazed what you catch.
R-Ceark needed some help figuring out the Periodic table of Video Game Characters. Also, HOLY CRAP, CEARK!
V-Jedah Doma links to Substance TV.
C-More than two lines and a link next time please, and Superflossy would probably appreciate it if you changed your avatar.



F-The Cblogs seem a little worse when they know Hamza's on vacation. He'll be back soon though, and this will not stand.
S-I laughed at this the first time I saw it. The second, I chuckled a bit. The third through 15th times, I just died a little more inside.
F-I have no interest in celebrity gossip. Or hitting women. I don't think I'm your target audience, here.
F-Thursday fail is just as much fun as Monday fail.
F-Is it ALWAYS this bad on Thursdays?
F-Seriously, is it? I'm legitimately curious.

That sure was a lot of fail, wasn't it, boys and statistically rare girls?
And for your video tonight...


This guy has done a LOAD of VG covers, and offers everything he's uploaded to Youtube as MP3 files. If you like this kind of thing, there's lots more.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
