So Sunday I picked up at a garage sale (for 50 cents) a copy of a book someone told me to get a while back: The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time. For those that don’t know what this is, it’s a fictional account of the murder of a neighbor’s dog done by a fictional autistic kid. Thus, the whole book becomes a case-study of autism. It’s a genius book, and if you have the chance, pick it up. As a little aside, the main character, Christopher, mentions that his favorite games are myst and The 11th Hour. So there’s that.

Alright, onto the recaps. Today, we find out the deal with all this bit nonsense, see that none of you, apparently, can play fighting games, and learn the names of a TON of new Dtoid faces.

*-HOT BUTTERED BISCUITS! NukaCola does some amazing drum work, covering the tunes from MMX.

*-JT IceFire sucks at Team Fortress 2, but is still strangely drawn to it.

*-Elsa unloads her thoughts about this whole Fat Princess-feminism debacle in this great post.

*-A gorgeous pic of Balrog from SF2 made by SuitcoatAvener.

*-And another Suitcoat pic of…some chick from Fallout 3, I assume.

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!
