LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 7/11/09 and 7/12/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Last night I was unfortunately unable to post the recaps, due to the fact I was a little intoxicated, so I have rolled the entire weekend recap into this one blog. I hope no one minds, but I don't think anyone will because there was a lot of great stuff to read this weekend on the cblogs. I mean just look at the size of that Topsauce section. It's awesome to see so many great blogs being written on the weekends.

I don't know about you, but I had a great weekend. First of all, I had my 100th blog post promoted to the front page, which is pretty awesome. It's only my 3rd blog to ever get promoted, so I guess I have a 3% promotion ratio. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

Anyways, besides that my girlfriend and I went to the AT&T store to upgrade our cell phones to the new iPhone 3GS this weekend. Unfortunately there were out of stock, so we have to go back later this week to pick ours up, but we are pretty excited. We have both wanted an iPhone for a really long time now, so it will be nice to finally own one. Now I just have to wait for the Desctructoid iPhone app to come out. Is anyone even working on one? If not they should be. Get on that Neiro!

I also beat X-Men Origins: Wolverine this weekend on the XBOX360. That game was pretty damn cool. I wish the movie had been more like the game. An R-rated Wolverine movie would have been so bad ass. Unfortunately I don't think that will ever happen, unless Quentin Tarantino gets a hold of the movie rights. Oh wow, can you guys imagine a Tarantino Wolverine flick? That shit would be off the hook!

Ok now time for the racaps ....

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!
