'Sup, Destructoid.

I had an interesting revelation last weekend when I took my PS3 over to a friend's house about LittleBigPlanet's DLC. As you may recall I picked up a copy during that crazy GoGamer sale, but I didn't realize at the time that they were the PAL version. This isn't a problem for the most part since the game is region free and runs perfectly fine on my system. What I learned the hard way however, is that for some reason which is beyond my comprehension, all DLC for the game is region locked. In my PAL copy I can't run around with a turkey on my head (downloaded during the Thanksgiving holiday), can't wear an astronaut suit or a Lunar new year outfit, despite having the costumes on my hard drive. Presumably, this means that the paid DLC such as the Metal Gear pack is also incompatible with a game which is not from your own country. I hadn't seen this information anywhere else, so I hope it's helpful to someone out there.



I had a bit of a backslide yesterday, and in a moment of weakness accepted a friend's offer to reinstate my World of Warcraft account. I hadn't played since late Burning Crusade, and a lot of things have changed... mostly for the better, but some changes are just bizarre to me. My main character was a paladin, and their combat mechanics got a complete overhaul since the last time I had played. Have any of you come back to a multiplayer game after a long absence to find things completely different? If so, let me hear about it in the comments.

In honor of tonight's contest, I'm gonna attempt to recap everyone's blogs with just five words. This isn't easy for me, if you're a regular to this page you know I'm a loquacious bastard. Let's give it a shot 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.
