LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6\15\10 + Rerunisms

   0


I've finally done it, folks. After months and months of letting my other account get cluttered with dust and vanilla-frosting-filled condoms (I'm assuming), I'm finally going to revive my dormant cblog tomorrow! If you've only known me for my writing I do here, be prepared to be amazed and delighted by what I can show you when given more room than a paragraph above the recaps. I will have a new episode of my long-lost cblog series Level-Headed, featuring my favorite zombie-inspired level in a game. I will then follow that up with a couple of other posts as the week continues. Hopefully, you all will take me back into your loving cblog arms, where I will feel loved and kinda sweaty. See ya tomorrow!



*- What a great way to start my night: Om Nom On Souls talks about the most poignant moment of E3.

*- Holy Shit, Look At This Incredible List Of 3DS 3rd Party Games That Is Probably Not Allowed To Be Seen By Us Commonfolk.

*- Wow, Arsenic13 does a really well-done, in-depth look at the Dead Space 2 trailer.

R- jc83 reviews Indiana Jones and The Staff of Kings, and (SPOILER) it’s not very good.

T- Yeah, a lot of fucking people (rightfully) were talking about the (fucking incredible) Nintendo press conference. People like Slaypax, Covah, Crunshii, Poe, InfinityBit, CrimeMinister, nekobun, madman0017, robotbebop, Novakaine, pedrovay, and Corduroy Turtle.

T- And Uber Mashu had some thoughts about Microsoft’s horrible conference.

T- While InfinityBit talks about the sony pretty alright conference.

T- Before Manic Maverick talks about how great Kinect really is.

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!
