The Worst Halloween Costumes I Ever Wore -



1. Gay Robin

The boy wonder was a role model to a young Wrenchfarm. Daring, smart, and able to handle the worst convicts and psychos of Gotham City, Robin embodied all the qualities I wished I could in my most private fantasies.

But his costume was a custom made battlesuit of integrated high-tech gadgets and bulletproof super-weave. Mine was basically a pair of ladies tights and a red tunic that Velcroed together at the crotch.

I never felt further from the Tim Drake ideal than I did fidgeting with my Velcro crotch desperately praying that nobody was watching.



2. Dime store Link/Robin Hood/Peter Pan

Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link left an indelible mark on my childhood. It was a game I was obsessed with and the first thing I bought with money I earned myself. It was only natural that I would want to dress like my hero for the Holidays.

Unfortunately, there might have been a little break down in communication between me and my mom. What I ended up with that year wasn't the iconic green tunic, glimmering sword, and Triforce emblazoned shield of my hero, but a sad mash up of fantasy characters. Like a Dollarstore knock-off toy trying to avoid copyright law.

A green corduroy cape, a tasseled brown shirt, green tights (again... hum, what was it with my mom and those?), a cheap plastic bow and arrow set that snapped in my hands, and the pointy green cap of the Boy Who Never Grew Up. I limped up and down the street for a handful of houses before calling it a night. Link may always finish his adventures with a full item kit and a wallet swelling with rubies, but I had only a handful of candy corn and a few spare candy necklaces to mark my sad journey.



3. Cardboard Robot

The classic old school robot. I rocked this look when I was four years old, proving that we never really change.

Tin foil plating, a coat hanger antenna, Pringle can arms, my costume was actually pretty swag.

Sadly, it provided ABSOLUTELY ZERO protection from a devastating gut punch delivered by the neighborhood bully. It was at that tender young age that I realized appearances don't matter unless you can back them up. After all, what kind of killer robot lets some future multiple-offender/gas attendant take his candy?

I swear, if I ever have a kid, his/her robot costume will have a functioning plasma pistol.



* - I would watch this movie.



A - The true Zen master finds balance in his life - by dicing up all the FPS games with the occasional Fighter or 3rd Person Adventure

A - But mud slinging is a time honored tradition in this industry!

A - Things seem creepy, but at this point we just don't know enough (anything) to really get upset. We'll have to wait and see how all this drama plays out.

P - Pocketoid is back with a new website and a contest! Also, I think they are a wee bit excited about the Pokemens.

A - Buying a console at launch? What do you think this is, the mid-90's?

A - Really couldn't disagree more with Jack and his opinion of Gone Home and Mass Effect 3 (that multiplayer was crazy fun), but I appreciate that he found something to celebrate about these games.



C - Are you the very best? The best there ever was? Maybe you should prove like a real man - by throwing small innocent animals at each other to fight to the death.

C - Hey, it's me! Check out my SPOooOOooKY Halloween give away for your chance to win a few frighteningly good games!

C - Some Dungeon Dasher codes up for grabs! Might be gone by now, but you never know!



E - The Spark Rising Kickstarter is concluding with a bang, a 48 hour live stream to drum up that last push!



R - The bizarre rating system used in this blog truly does remind me of the criminally insane.

T - I've been enjoying GTA: Online, but this sounds like some straight up bullshit.



F - Check out this interview with the creator of the Walking Dead.



V - Scary Granules has some LP vids I unfortunately did not have time to watch. Look fun though!

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.
