So am I the only community member who plans on picking up a copy of Ghostbusters this week when it's released on XBOX360 and PS3? Come one, I know I'm not the only person here who thinks that "bustin' makes me feel good". There have to be some other people who have always wanted to strap a nuclear accelerator to their back, right? If you are one of these people let me know, because I really want to play some co-op in this game. If you plan on picking up Ghostbusters this week, and want to hook up for some 4 player co-op ghost bustin' action, please let me know. Also, let me know which version of the game you are buying, the XBOX360 or the PS3 version. I'm still unsure which version to get, and I'll probably get the one that will give me the best chance to play with other dtoid members.

There was was a lot of really good blogs posted today, so check out the TopSauce section for my huge list of recommended reads. Ok, now let's get on with the Sunday Cblog recaps ....

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!
