I've finally done it, folks. After months and months of letting my other…wait, I already did this two weeks in a row; let’s not make it three.

Anywho, the new Sam and Max episode came out today. All I have to say about it is that within a five minute period in-game, Black Flag, Monkey Island, and Starcraft are referenced. It’s also the most fun episode of this current series, in my opinion.

Yeah, short –isms are short; bite me, I’m tired. Now to the recaps…



*- A damn fine and high-class look at the idea of the phallus (and I don’t mean dongs…well, not entirely) in No More Heroes.

*- Wow, there was totally a Blade Runner game, and Stevil talks about it in this installment of Gamer Obscura.

*- Holy Awesome Fuck: The Scott Pilgrim War.

*- Om Nom On Souls wonders why we don’t have more video game characters that we outright hate, and not for their games, but their actions.

*- Cadtalfryn’s very epic, well-thought-out thoughts on Flower.

*- Everyone, get in here and congratulate JACK of No Trades for being with Dtoid for THREE years!

*- Wesley Susaya has a pretty great review of my favorite indie platformer, Eversion.



S- Now that E3’s all done, Brian (aka NihonTiger) asks What, if anything, ‘d You Get.

P- So here’s a Doctor Who podcast for the kind of people who’d be into that.



W- Yet another spectacular mrandydixon contest has come and gone, with Corduroy Turtle the victor.



N- England basically fucks over some game devs by getting rid of proposed tax breaks.

N- Not really noteworthy now, but yesterday there were a good amount of XBLA games at a huge discount.

V- Well now: check out the trailer for the winner of some Norwegian game contest, Norrland.

R- The Silent Protagonist reviews the unbridled awesome that is MGS: Peace Walker.

T- mjemirzian talks about the new Fire Emblem, Obnoxiously Long Title That Means Something Fancy In Japanese (I think that’s the proper translation).

T- Poe, in examining reactions to TLoZ: Skyward Sword, figures out why he loves Dtoid.

T- LuccaLover drops some change (roughly two cents worth) about Kinect.

T- garethxxgod has thoughts about Left 4 Dead zombies and XBLA vs. PSN, and wants to know what you think.

T- GiftofGab gets some bad games, which led him to write this article about them.

D- Lowell B talks about his love/hate relationship with Platinum Games.



L- Well that’s just not true.

L- Now this is just getting ridiculous.



F- No, I won’t enjoy.

F- Oh for fuck’s sake…

F- Listen to Gobun (p.s. that would make for a great t-shirt).

F- Hooray for advergames!

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!
