I'm posting the Sunday recaps a little bit early tonight because I'm really exhausted and I need to relax before I head to bed. Let me tell you a little bit about my busy day. First, I woke up and beat Bionic Commando. I was so utterly shocked by how simple the final boss encounter was that I immediately took it out of my XBOX 360, where it will never return again. Have any of you beat Bionic Commando yet? If you have, what did you think of the ending, or the whole game for that matter?

Next, I sat down with my PS3 and beat Shatter. I followed that up by sitting down and writing a review for the game, which hopefully should be published tomorrow morning. Just so you know, I absolutely loved the game and scored it a 9/10. For only $7.99, you should all go out and buy this game, right now. I'm serious! Stop reading this recap and go buy it. You won't regret it.

I finished the day up by grilling some pork kabobs for me and my girlfriend. I used some nice thick center cut pork chops, with onions, and some fresh Green Peppers grown right in my back yard. I included rice and corn bread as sides, and enjoyed a delicious meal. It was awesome. Finally, I sat down for 2 hours and did the recaps. Now I'm gonna sit down and watch some television before bed.

So how was your day?

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!
