The Cblog Fapcast Episode 11 - Strider alone

   0


So there I was, minding my own business, when I was hit by nothing! It was like I was hit by a nothing storm! And it happened to everyone else too! When the storm had passed, I decided that the only logical course of action would be to record a podcast. Unfortunately, everyone was still in the nothing storm and I wouldn't be able to get anyone on super short notice. So instead of waiting it out, I decided to go on ahead and record the podcast myself.

And that's how I saved Christmas in April.

Well, I did this by myself, and most people know how I don't listen to my own episodes. It's only common courtesy to assume the worst. Why would I listen to the worst thing ever since that's my first assumption. And since this is all me, it clearly must be super worst.



Strider decides to do it live since no one else was online (he checked though). Fortunately, the Fapcast isn't a 2 hour long one-man show. Remember the Write Stuff? It's like that.

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!
