So, a lot of people are pretty against me getting the Destructoid tattoo. Well, I just wanted to take time out to defend myself. Here's what I wrote in the forums:

Since a lot have asked me about this, yes, I'm 150% sure. Before Dtoid, I never really had a place to talk about games; I never had any real gamer friends, and every other community I was a part of felt rather lifeless and troll-filled. Through Dtoid, I've met some amazing fucking people, gotten the opportunity to do things I'd never think to do before, and write about something I'm passionate about. Though most of you might think this is a fucking terrible idea, I have so much love for this site and the things it's given me that I can't think of anything better to do than get this tattoo. The fact that you, the community, are helping me make/choose it makes the tattoo that much more special.

So, call me stupid if you want. I'll just be here in the corner with an amazing fucking tattoo.

Also, if you love horror movies, PLEASE click the first link in the Topsauce blogs. You won’t be disappointed.

*-Togail, my favorite cblog artist, amazes again with this Yoshi drawing.

*-Interesting: Braid and MGS are polar opposites.

*-Yeah, I know, but I don’t care: my glass final project, Mega Man vs. Glass Man.

*I couldn’t have said it any better: What needs to be in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.

*-The most adorable fucking thing you’ll see all day, maybe even all week.

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!
