As you can read about in the first Top Sauce blog, Yashoki is contemplating getting his Ship server back online and is trying to gauge intrest. I can not urge you enough to COME OUT AND PLAY WITH US! To quote from Mr. 'shoki himself: "If you've never played The Ship before think of it as Clue meets The Sims. The idea of the game is that you're on a ship with many other passengers and everyone has someone that they must murder. The twist is that you also have to tend to your needs such as eating, sleeping, going to the restroom and showering; all of which are designed to distract you while your murderer hunts you down. The Ship involved a ton of mind games as there will be players trying to make you believe they must hunt you down." That's right. The games so good I had to plagiarize to explain it. For more info I highly suggest you check out Surf's excellent beginners guide for it. It's an amazingly unique and fun experience. The way's of killing people are highly inventive and varied, whether it be a revolver, fire axe, poison syringe or simply lighting them on fire. The game can quickly become and intense cat and mouse chase with the victim ducking in and out of the safe zones in, balancing hunting his own prey, while avoiding his would be assassin. It's a type of game you'll get no where else and that you have to at least experience once.

Hopefully I'll see you there :3 As for now, enjoy the recap!

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!
