The Cblog Fapcast Episode 4 - Hobo extraordinaire, Manchild

   0




I believe the G in ScottyG stands for GENT. Because he is a gentleman of the highest caliber to lend me web space he happened to have lying around. The Fapcast officially has webspace and we're about to pollute the internet with our own brand of caps! Episode 4 was a pain in the ass to get out, so appreciate it you mugs! And since we're using some new web space, be sure to right-click those links to download them. Unless you want to stream it directly off the hosts, which sounds boring and stupid.

We has a site!

Get in on it here!

In this episode...

Manchild is onboard as we talk Hawken, Assassin's Creed 3, and Mickey's Magical Adventure! Then we spotlight community standards, influences on gaming taste, and everyone's favorite banned community member. THEN EVERYTHING FALLS APART. It's about time.

Like what you hear? If you're interested in a guest spot, be sure to follow our podcast's twitter! Send us questions if you have any! Or suggest blogs or news you think is notable for us to cap!

~ What is the Cblog Fapcast?

Skip. We've gone over this. Ok, well, it's a podcast much like Communitoid, but since it's by the Recap team, it's about what pertains to the Recappers; the Cblogs. We're a community podcast that half talks about today's games and for the other half, talks about the cblogs of the week! Think of it as my old Write Stuff feature!

~ Who hosts the Cblog Fapcast?

I'm the host and creator, so most episodes will have me in it. The other Recappers will also appear when time allows for them to help out!

~ Will the Fapcast be on iTunes?

We're working on it!

~ How often will the Fapcast update?

We record weekly every Friday/Saturday and upload a new episode every Sunday/Monday.

~ Will you talk about my blog?

We're a community run podcast about your blogs. If there's anything of note about it, somebody will probably bring it up. We discuss our topsauces, our fails, and everything in the gray that is worth mentioning yet not worth branding as the top or the bottom. I'm already seeing something I want to talk about and it's neither topsauce nor fail!

~ Obligitory twitter plug

Why that's right! We (and by we, I mean I) have started a twitter! Mostly for the Fapcast and yet confusingly named as if it's for recaps in general. If you have any other questions, concerns, suggestions, or ideas, send them to @CblogFapcast! You can suggest cblogs for us to look at and maybe discuss, cold openings, break clips, ending music, as well as good old fashion listener questions!

~ I'm in desperate need of a tl;dr!

Go here to download it! Go here to send in your ideas! Go here to support our community! Hope you enjoy it! Another round of thanks to ScottyG for making the web space happen!

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!
