Phew! Busy day! I'm glad that's over! I think I deserve a Twix chocolate bar. It's two for me and fuck you!

Anyway, I had mentioned this last week but there was a NARP this past weekend over at nademagnet's pad up in Orlando. Nice dude. Splendid host. Let me crash on his couch. We had a projector running with games of Street Fighter IV and Batman Akham Asylum, there was an SSBB throwdown, and I even gave it my all to run through Mega Man 9 in a single sitting. Couldn't do it. Wily handed me my ass on a platter and I was too stupid to stock up on E Tanks before entering the castle. That fucker. He doesn't get laid, you know that? Why else would he be fucking with me year after year?

I think the best part of the night was my Bacon Explosion! It was my first time preparing the meal, but it turned out not bad at all. People were talking about it! They gave me my props! I'm pleased that you have clogged your arteries on my cuisine! Man, that stuff was heavy! We sliced the bastard up and ate them on Pillsbury biscuits! Heaven!

So, again, thanks to nademagnet for opening his doors to everyone.

Now, on to the final order of business this evening: Hironobu Kageyama of Dragon Ball Z fame singing Ken's theme from Street Fighter II!

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!
