LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 10-05-09 and Qalamarisms

Greetings, Destructoid.
I meant to post up a batch of YTMNDs tonight, but seeing as it's already 2:30 I believe I'll simply pass for tonight and make it up to you all next week. I spent the day cleaning and making minor improvements in my apartment-- it's surprising how engaging that can be, and I found it was past midnight before I remembered I had to do the recaps this evening. So- my apologies if this is a little more half-assed than usual.


Dr. Tran makes everything better.


*-Dtoid Artisans posted images of a brilliant Mario themed scarf. Sadly, crochet does not rank among my talents.
*-Stevil's Monthly musing looks at that most annoying of game cliches: the invincible locked door.
*-MegaStryke knows that if he posts his Off Brand Games feature on Mondays, I'll topsauce it. I am powerless to resist their quality. The bastard.
*-Shinryu108's blog about how important localization can be seems to be phasing in and out of existence. Read it while you can!


S-Tanukitsune went through a couple of FPS's to shrink his backlog this week.
M-Mechayakuza can't stand that (primarily) JRPG cliche, the Silent Protagonist.
M-Neveranything has little use for arbitrary boss fights in his Musing.
P-Drunkcast recorded episode 11 tonight.
P-Refused Classification episode 14 is now available.


W-Nilcam did a post-mortem on the King of Dtoid 2009 contest he's been running over the last month. Congratulations to the winners!


S-Calebyte's buddy had some trouble with an online order. I think I'd rather get a blank CD than a brick. Charlie Brown got a rock.
C-Vexed Alex's new feature article starts soon. If you'd like to participate, acquire yourself a copy of Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and the means to play it.
C-BulletMagnet just celebrated his first Destructiversary.
I-This is how you do an introduction post right. Everyone welcome Campbell00.
H-It's been a while since we've seen a good setup post. Kauza has one to be proud of.


R-Ben Stoddard reviewed Bomberman- Act: Zero.
R-NortonAntivirus reviewed ODST.
P-Got-DAMN that's a long title.
T-TheFil borrows a page from Y0j1mb0 to tell you why you NEED a PSP.
P-Arianol looked at a couple of upcoming PC games, Dreamkiller and Machinarium.
$-Arianol also let us know that Empire: Total War is half-price on Steam this week.


A- You know that Brentalfloss guy who puts words to all the NES games we grew up with? Kapitan Palo is working on cover art for his upcoming CD. Looking good so far!
A-Pendleton21 put some glowy beads to good use in making his latest perler sprite art.
A-Lotsa art today. SuitcoatAvenger posted some of his latest.
M-Diverse mans the turntables of dTunes this week. It's an esoteric mix to start out with, for sure.
M-Pixelpunx shared some chiptunes with everyone. Thanks, Pixelpunx!


V-KnuxSonic entered a video in the Unlock Xbox competition. Here it is.
C-It's a better first post than mine, for sure. Mine, however, was abysmal. A little more content would make it a lot better.
C- This call to arms for multiplayer Thexder Neo would have benefited from some more effort.
?-This is hard to classify. Edmund McMillan needs gall bladder surgery, but as an indie developer, lacks health insurance. Can you help out?


F-The banner's awesome, but that doesn't excuse this.
F-I DON'T LIKE ADS BAWWWW


-(Qalamari)

Edit: Some of the posts from today weren't showing up for me earlier. I went back and added them in. Sorry if you were left out, I assure you no malice was intended. -Q

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.
