Well, I don't have much to say other than the inFamous demo was amazingly incredible. I've always been a huge fan of the Sly Cooper games, and as an action-whore, this game really delivers. Sure, it could have been fleshed out in regards to a few areas, but it's fun!

I also found a new show to pick up. Strangely, I've never seen The Wire. I'm like 4 episodes into the first season, and I'm loving it. I understand that many critics regard it as the "best show ever made", so if you like crime dramas, watch it!

Oh, and I made a stupid joke regarding Killzone 2's optional controls. Disregard it!

Oh look another rockin' power metal song!


*-Did Y0j1mb0 just predict Jet Set Radio Online? Hell yea!.
*-Chef Pendleton wants to tickle your taste-buds, then rape them.


M-Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth ? Ooh Tran-syl-vania is a Place on Earth!
P-Pocketoid Episode 1 Records Tonight!
A-Wry Guy asks: "What's with all the Wii hate?"


E-OMG a contest! Walrus want's you to MSPaint yourself to a 50% off Demigod coupon.


E-bahs gives us more amazing Destructoid Trading Card Game goodness!


F-CrocBox will be showing Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Sundays. Sounds cool to me!
M-Ever wanted more FFVI fan-work? 4knuckleshuffle promises to deliver...hard.
M-Music....overload...If you can take youtube embed after embed, Analoge will make you want to play all these games over again.
M-Ani-Wednesday is streaming Zoids, Escaflowne, and one of my all-time favorites, GTO, compliments of Genji-JAM. GTO is about a badass ex-motorcycle gang member that becomes a teacher: with hilarious results!.


T-Some more thoughts on Rapeplay...again
T-Killzone 2 is a clingly slut.
N-unangbangkay has matlocked some photos of attractive anime women for your viewing "pleasure".
T-Wan Sum Dung reminds us how awesome Paper Mario was.
T-Only the hardcore GBA-ers remember this puppy. Durga AI reminds me of an awesome backlight.
T-Another day, another "Should I buy Cross Edge" blog. Tell Covah how awesome it is.
T-It wouldn't be a day on the blogs without more Zippyduda MGS speculation.
T-Slash watermelons and Tengu heads while avoiding bombs on the DS! Wait what? NihonTiger90 has the details.


R-Zippyduda posts one of those Livejournal-ist "things to do before you die" checklists, and I don't know what to think of it!
R-Kojima secretly has another counter, for his counter, which in turn, was a counter for a counter!
R-Mr PORC gives us random videos of random stuff that's "back by popular demand". Maybe this was before my time?


F-FinnE is a "first generation gamer", and Lost Odyssey is his first JRPG. Zuh?
F-Cyber Altair could have made gametoid, but his name and failure prevented it.



Ding! Blogs are done: just sit back, relax, and put some head-phones on:

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!
