LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/25/10 + Pendeltonisms

   0


A bit of a crazy today. Moved out of my last college apartment to finally get all my shit home (read: parentís house). Almost fully set up with all my cool shit in my room. Next week Iíll have pics of my new set-up, either up here or in a cblog (whenever the fuck I get around to making those again). This is, in fact, the first thing Iíve written at my new work station! Be proud, recap: youíre making history right now!

Alright, enough talking to inanimateÖobjects (how do you classify a cblog?), letís get to the Ďcaps, as the kids call Ďem nowadays.



*- Om Nom On Souls, while suffering from writerís block, still produced this great blog about game characters.

*- Taking the place of Rev Anthonyís Monthly Musings, the community has taken it upon themselves to keep the topics coming. This monthís: how games are associated with our families.

*- So hereís a new series devoted to interviewing Cblog celebs. This week: Occams electric toothbrush!

*- Results and videos from the FI: Mark of The Wolves Cblog Tournament.

*- Soon to be the top item on everyoneís Christmas list, The Modurn Warfairz 2 Limited Edition Xbox 360.

*- Topsauced only to shed light on the craziest Tumblr Iíve ever seen: Can Mario Fuck It?

*- Stevil gives us another incredible Gamer Obscura about the Police Quest series.

*- Though youíve probably already bought it if you really wanted to, hereís a wonderful review of GTA4: Episodes from Liberty City.

*- Though I wholeheartedly disagree with the man, BenelliM4 still put out a great piece about why he hates Portal.

*- You had me at the first image: check out this great write-up about the new shmup Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype.

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!
