Cblogs of 4/7/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


Without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite games is Lumines. I havenít been gaming much on my laptop recently (because itís shit), but I did some digging last week and found I had Lumines on it. And Iíve played it for about 5 hours each day the past week. Iím not sure if itís because of the music, the visuals, or the new puzzle type they developed, but I can safely say that Lumines is the greatest puzzle game ever created.

Tetris can suck it.

Alright, now with that flamebait out of the way, letís move on to the recaps! Today, weíve got unstopablejuggernaut making me feel like Iím playing Left 4 Dead with him, 2 different views on the new Bionic Commando game, and a few new members joining our ranks.

For you, the day Pendelton recapped the Cblogs was the most important day of your life. For me, it was a Tuesday.



*-FRONT. PAGE. THIS. IMMEDIATELY. A letter to The Combine Overwatch (possibly one of the best things Iíve ever read on the cblogs).

*-ygro looks back on his history of gaming with his first love: PC games.

*-Since there isnít a section to put blogs I want to have sex with, I guess this will be good enough: juggernaut makes the craziest video ever. And, Jesus Christ, hereís another one.

*-Still my favorite cblog articles, this weekís Dtoid Community Discussion is about GDC.

*-Professor Pew reviews the new Hannah Montana game AND gets put on a sex offender registry at the same time!

*-Who here wants a beautiful, amazingly well-crafted, handmade Destructoid helmet from craineum?

*-THIS IS WHY I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY: megaStryke writes a great response to Tascarís Nintendo article.

*-Like you didnít already know this was gonna be up here: todayís GrumpyTurtle pics.

*-Darth Vader mixed with Bricktop from Snatch. Holy shitÖ

*-Hahaha, a list I never knew could be made: the top 10 JUMPS in gaming. Awesome.

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!
