LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 10-12-09 and Timewarpisms

   0




Cast your mind back 48 hours, gentle reader. It seems so long ago, does it not? A simpler time. A time before Brutal Legend & Uncharted 2. A time before internet fanboys got pissy about the reviews for the aforementioned games.

We do apologize for the lack of service over the last couple of days. There was a misunderstanding at Recap headquarters, magnified by an uncharacteristically heavy storm that knocked out my internet service. Shan't happen again.


*-Walkyourpath channeled Sir James of Sterling when writing this writeup of the finest game of his generation. Don't stop believing.
*-Y0j1mb0's semi-response to Megastryke's post about immersion is well worth a look.
*-It's rare that Scary Womanizing Pig Mask writes a blog, but when he does the results are worth the wait. This analysis of Giygas is mindboggling.
*-Canti-Sama's list of gaming pet peeves is something I think we can all relate to. Wil Wheaton said it, and Jesus agrees: Don't be a dick.
*-Sheppy's fast becoming one of my favorite bloggers around here. This piece on why Epic Mickey won't necessarily suck on the Wii is another reason why.
*-Kauza's piece about status effects has already been promoted, so you know it's good.


A-Covah went in-depth on some of the major upcoming releases. Even with everything getting pushed into 2010, this year's still looking goddamn expensive.
S-Nihontiger90 broke tradition by telling you what to get. Just kidding, as usual, he asked What'd You Get?
M-CWal37's Musing doesn't quite fit the mold, but it's a personal story of exploration and life apart from pixels and polygons.
S-Tanukitsune crossed Resident Evil 5 off his backlog list.
P-Failcast episode 49 is now available.
P-Drunkcast recorded on Monday.


C-Don't forget, you can win an assortment of Lucasarts-themed prizes for showing your art chops to the Destructoid Artisans.
W-This is pretty cool. Remember the Soapbox car TheBigFeel built that won the Red Bull Derby? Double Fine noticed and invited him to the Brutal Legend launch party.


C-While calibrating the lag on his new setup, LK404 had an epiphany about how much fun it can be to be silly.
I-Fructose introduced herself with a writeup of the DJ Hero demo stations now available at your local Best Buy. Welcome to Destuctoid.


N-Boatz beat the front page with this list of the Left 4 Dead 2 achievements.
N-More about the L4D2 cheevos.
N-while you once had a choice in the matter, that will end soon-- all World of Warcraft accounts will need to be merged with Battle.net before the month is out.
T-Unangbangkay had some early thoughts on Uncharted 2.
T-Lachlan Watts yearns for simplicity.
T-Jade Empire is making Tgammet violent.
R-Nogarda reviewed the South Park tower defense game.
R-A 20-year-old review of Castlevania courtesy of Solid Boss.
P- The not-quite-an-MMO Love is in early testing, and Snoogans775 is letting us in on all the good stuff.


M-It's Senisan82's turn behind the turntables for this week's dTunes. To start, a lot of great game-inspired metal.


L-How do you advertise Destructoid on a dating site? Here's how.
R-Something about Street Fighter? I guess? Maybe?
?-This post by Wry guy has several topics, including a challenge to the community and a call for entrants into a KOF tournament.
C-I don't like the tone of this blog. It's unnecessarily confrontational.
C-A link to an article on another site is generally a taboo, but at least there's an explanation and some additional words here.
?-Cool story, bro.


Well done, ladies and gents. Doughnut holes for everyone!

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.
