Hey, everyone, how was your week? Mine was pretty cool, I didn't play much games, but my girlfriend came back from Ireland so I'm pretty much happy.

More World Cup news. After an abysmal display, England are out of the World Cup. I will say that it is a travesty that Lampard's goal was disallowed, but it still probably wouldn't have made too much of a difference. Oh well. Cue 40 years of "The Stolen Goal Scandal".

There were two games yesterday, Holland vs Brazil, and Uruguay vs Ghana. I personally found Holland vs Brazil a bit boring, but it was good to see somebody beat Brazil at last. Uruguay vs Ghana was just spectacular. It had everything really - goals, saves, handballs and penalties. It was sad to see Ghana go out but they had a really good chance to win the game which they sadly failed to take.

Today's videos are something that I found through RiotMonster. I assume that a few of you will already be familiar with these videos, but they are very funny. [EDIT: For some reason, it won't let me embed the video. Have a link instead.

Finally, today was a pretty bog-standard day for the blogs. Good Topsauces, a ton of Wordtoid, and unfunny fails. Enjoy.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
