LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8/17/10 + Pendeltonisms

   0


So apparently today was the day that everyone let us know what they were up to. JohnnyViral, Elsa, Occam, and a few others all had cblogs recapping various elements of their lives. With the ever-present Cblog Interview, that makes a lot of posts about people you probably only know through the internet. For some, this might make the recap boring as…a bookmark in Under The Dome (Jesus, that was a bit of a stretch). But for me, someone who eats life stories like a…mental Metroid (nailed that one), I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about these people.

Something about me just enjoys a story more when I know that it's actually happened. Hell, most of the conversations I have with people devolve into pissing matches over life stories. Oh yeah, you once banged a girl in a moving car? I once ate a chick out WITH A BROKEN NECK. Learning more about people is just damn fun. Do yourself a favor and learn about them as well.

Especially the first blog. Holy shit is it brilliantly written.



*- “Then I watched people rape a Native American girl while they sang Disney music. I nodded in approval.”

*- Have you played Qix before, or ARE YOU A FUCKING PUSSY?!?!?!

*- There is a lot of craziness (Cathy, a half-naked Sting, AND Last Action hero?!?!) going on in this news round-up by Occam’s Electric Toothbrush.

*- This week’s Cblog Interview delves into the darker side of Destructoid with Zodiac Eclipse, a forum person.

*- A great piece about The Lost, the under-rated GTA4 gang and focus of The Lost and The Damned.

*- Teh Bias: Here’s where I’d reference a Beatles song.



A- Part 2 of Louis Garcia’s interview with David Gaider.

A- A rant (a damn fucking good one, I might add) for the ages.

M- Teh Bias: Is it pretty enough?

P- This might have the most ridiculous comment thread I’ve seen in a while.



E- CrimeMinister wants to take two lovely Dtoiders to the gamer’s Prom.



N- Realtime Worlds, those behind the ghastly APB, are kaput.

V- Watch McKn Decker play Terranigma.

T- Daxelman tells us what he thinks of Brink.

D- Holy shit: Check out the awesome Metroid bidness Infinitys End has been working on.



L- OH MY GOD THIS IS ADORABLE.

?- Aww, Om Nom on Souls loves us!

?- Elsa gives us some updates about stuff (congrats SilverDragon!)

?- As does JohnnyViral.



F- It’s like Seinfeld!

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!
