Alright, kids. In an attempt to prepare for PAX, Iíve decided to start a very strange sleeping schedule tonight. No, itíll take too long to explain, but understand that Iím a bit tired, so here are some random thoughts Iíve been having:

King of The Hill is a highly-underrated cartoon.
My room mate has yet to play Castle Crashers or Braid. Thank God I came along to set the boy straight.
Home Movies is also very fantastic.
ĎSplosion Man has the CRAZIEST. ENDING. EVER. Cannot wait to see what Twisted Pixel has in store for us next.
The Jockey sounds fucking crazy. I cannot WAIT to play with it.
Bonars.
Jesus, you people write the best blogs on Tuesday nights. And shame on the failures I had to put up with today.

*-Once again, megaStryke gives us a spectacular edition of Off-Brand Games, examining 8 Eyes this week.

*-While I donít agree with this, I canít deny itís a great blog: Are plastic guitars ruining music?

*-WHY HAS NO ONE COMMENTED ON THIS?!?! Canti-sama takes a deep, deep look at the strange tale of Killer 7.

*-BEST. BLOG. TITLE. EVER: We Need A Gaming Fonzie.

*-Here we have young Micro$ux6969. He spends his time trolling SA, and needs a good home. Will you help him out?

*-Where have all the good game developers gone, and where are all the gods?

*-In the fight over which zombie game is racister, UglyDuck suggest itís probably Left 4 Dead.

*-WOOHOO: A great compendium of every Spawn game randombullseye has played.

*-thefil wants game devs to throw everything theyíve got at him, giving Arkham Asylum as an example of doing it right.

*-Wow. Togailís back with a GORGEOUS comissioned piece.

*-Probably the best review of Mirrorís Edge Iíve read in a while.

*-Something tells me this new account is gonna be fun: Dtoid Countdown tells us why Hitler makes our lives better.

*-Yeah, itís a super-late Lair article, but itís a damn good one.

*-diceshow makes a pretty good case for why Turok 2 is blatantly better than Goldeneye.

*-As if you NEEDED any reasons, hereís 5 about why AvP is gonna be incredible.

*-krowís 2nd day of dTunes checks out our own I KILL PXLS.

*-Dear KOF: Wry Guy loves you.

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!
