LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/14/09 + Pendelton Whoring

So, this is a repost of yesterday's blog, and yes I'm a whore, but, I wanna get as many entries as I can:

I'm calling on any and all Dtoid artists/doodlers/what-have-yous to come forth and give me tattoo designs. Basically, I'd like something small (no bigger than 5 inches...Jesus, how many times have I said that?*), and it has to be your interpretation of Mr. Destructoid's head. I have 2 designs I like so far, and I'm looking for more. Why? Well, once I have in a bunch of designs, I'm gonna have the community vote for which piece will be forever emblazoned on my hairy, goulish-white flesh. YES, YOU, THE COMMUNITY, WILL DETERMINE WHICH TATTOO I GET!

Here's how it's gonna work: anyone who wants to enter, send me a PM or an email (at [email protected]) with your piece of art. My favorite 5 pieces will go head-to-head in a community poll, where anyone in the community can vote on the winner. Said winner will not only get to revel in the fact that your art will be eternally etched onto me, but they'll also get a $20 PSN/360/Wii point card for their efforts.

All submissions MUST BE SENT IN by next Wednesday night at midnight. The winners will be posted, and the poll readied 2 weeks from today. So, be sure to come back and choose what I get tattooed on my body!!!

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!
