If you're wondering why today's 'caps are more than 24 hours late, well, you can blame that all on me. Or mostly anyway. I was all ready to do `em last night when the server gave me a mysterious "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error." Any time after it came up though? That's all on me. I'm not clever like MegaStryke is, so no theme for this catch-up recap tonight I'm afraid. Wait... Catch-up? Catsup? Ketchup? Hell, I'm tired enough that that can be the theme.




*-Handy applied SCIENCE! to that most curious of beasts, the professional videogame reviewer. I do believe Tactix would approve.
*-Stevil's Musing reiterates that the only constant in this life is uncertainty.
*-I really liked this blog from goretexfogg, who played through an older game with a fresh perspective due to some familial influence.
*-KillMyEgo has been practicing using Maya, and came up against a familiar face.
*-Awesome Ex Machina raises a great point in his Monthly Musing... where do we go from here?


A-Prolifikstudio has been playing COD: MW2 in 3rd person mode, and offers some pointers for any who'd like to try it.
A-Lord the Night Knight thinks the Wii remake of Dead Rising could do with a makeover.
M-Super Saiyan 19 fears for The Future in this Musing.
S- Darthix' game-a-week challenge is off to a solid start with Portal.
S-When Monday comes, it's time to let NihonTiger90 know What'd You Get?
P-Your Princess is in another Podcast episode 4 is now available.
P-While not technically a podcast, you have the option of listening to STFUAJPGM (the "M" is for Music) and you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not doing so.


Not a thing.



E-If you're close enough to San Francisco to know where San Mateo is, you might want to check out the NARP DtoidSF will be throwing this Saturday.
E-If you're going to PAX, you could totally bring my avatar with you. He'll split transportation costs and is a great listener.*
I-Kudegra's introduction is primarily about the game Killing Floor. It's not really a floor, it's more of a steel grate that allows material to sluice through so that it can be collected and exported. In any case, welcome to Destructoid.
I-Greetings also to Xenomus, who really seems to understand this whole intro thing.


N-NihonTiger90 beat the front page with this story about major retailers cutting back on what Wii games they'll allow on their shelves.
R-Nilcam reviewed his new Fightstick he got to play Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
R-TewDee sorta reviews the Korg music maker for the DSi.
P-NightV gave an extensive breakdown of what he thinks of the M.A.G beta.
T-Gilgamesh1317 had an...inconsistent experience in his local game store.
T-AJN256 and Rev. Anthony would probably get along just fine.
T-Blindfire can't stand unlocking stuff in his fighting games. What do you think?
T-ThemDerp longed for the good ol' days, until he had to experience them.
T-Nekobun wrote at length about his experiences in the Phantasy Star universe.


S-WastelandTraveler let us all know about this mounted alien-head thing that would look so, so very badass above someone's fireplace.


R- It's cold out there, y'all. That's why liberals have switched from saying "Global Warming" to "Climate Change."
V-PreacherMan89 made a PAIN video.
V-Everyday Legend posted this video showing off the new Ultras in Super Street Fighter 4. I'm a little disappointed Balrog's don't involve ear-biting.
V-TewDee posted a video of a discussion about the different flavors of First Person Shooters.
V-Lotta videos Monday. This one is of de BLOO winning SF4, forever.
C-This would make an excellent forum post. A blog, not quite so much.
C-Same as above.



The only fail today would be in watching this video through to the end. Like I did. Repeatedly.

*Avatar will not actually split transportation costs. If it did, I might be able to go in person.

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.
