Another relatively slow week, but there's a good reason for it this time. I think you all know what it is. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to PAX despite promising myself I would all year. You know how it is. Things happen. Plans change. Money goes down the fucking toilet. Things of that nature. So yeah, I'm bummed. If the recaps today don't exude my usual charm and wit, that's why.

But wait! Next week there is going to be a PAX pity party up in Orlando and I. Am. There. I'm going to bring the ingredients to make this heart-attack-on-a-plate. It'll be righteous. It'll be better than PAX! With blackjack! And hookers!

Shifting gears, I went to Waldenbooks today and sat down by the graphic novels section for a couple hours, just enjoying the peace and quiet. I read some Marvel Zombies. It was either when a mentally broken Reed Richards intentionally infected the rest of the Fantastic Four and allowed himself to be bitten by them because he felt that zombification was the next step in human evolution OR when a zombified Giant-Man kept a sedated Black Panther alive for weeks tied to an operating table, sawing off limbs every few days in order to feed at a carefully rationed pace that I thought to myself, "Yessir. This is Disney material right here."

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!
