Here's hoping Keith makes it into L4D2 as DLC. Or maybe he's already in as a tank.

Nice job today guys, lots of good stuff and very little bad. Let's get to it.


*-It may not be officially official, but GamesAreArt and co. are keeping the Monthly Musings alive in some form. And that's pretty awesome.
*-Stevil's Gamer Obscura series took a look at a sunsoft survival horror game called The Note. Nice use of post-its; I do love a good meta joke.
*-AwesomeExMachina took a detailed look at the good and the bad of side quests.
*-BulletMagnet's Forgotten Essentials series takes on the puzzle genre, indirectly laying out why PopCap has more money than God right about now.
*-It's still in the early stages, but Skribble's working on something that promises to be pretty cool. Or hot. Like dragon's breath.
*- According to his local fundies, Clown Baby is going to hell. Yeah, well, down the hatch.


A-Beyamor's list of why the Pokemon world is superior to our own is hard to disagree with.
A-It's a Gameboy themed article day, as Mike Wuest explains his love of Link's Awakening.
A- There goes the Gameboy theme. But this piece by Time and a Half puts forth some interesting ideas about game development.
P-Podsumaki appears to be gaining steam, especially with the recent release of SSF4. Episode 5 recorded tonight.


C-MrRandyDixon needs a new blog header, and has offered a bounty in the form of a free PS3 game. Get cracking.


E- E3's coming up and Destructoid's AV club could use some help if you've got the chops.
I-Greetings to Justin, who apparently likes Friends and cowboy hats.


N-Covah beat the front page with this video confirmation that LittleBigPlanet 2 is a real thing.
N-Looks like they're making another True Crime game, this time set in... Hong Kong? Isn't half the point of those games seeing the landscape in a 1:1 scale? How many of you have ever been to Hong Kong?
T-Snoogans775 had some thoughts about his experiences with a malfunctioning PS3 and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.
T- CrimeMinister posted a thought experiment involving the Guinness list of the best game series. It kind of went off the rails.
T-Ausgamer might just be the original N64 kid.
T-Wedgewu defends her right to play so-called "casual" games.
R-Metroid Fetus reviewed and recommended an android/iPhone game called Drop7.


A-Hi, I'm Daisy! KodyKoala made a custom statue in tribute to Luigi's sweetie.
A-Faith continues pumpin' the Perler, and HOLY CRAP NEX SIGHTING!


V-ChrisBradshaw posted up a video of a nice-looking Mario 3 Rom hack. If I weren't busy doing the recaps, I'd probably be playing it right now.
V-HybridRain introduced himself by posting this fan tribute to the Assassin's Creed series that he played a part in.
C-This topic has been done to death, the corpse flung onto a highway and dragged for miles by a passing semi truck.
C-I'm not seeing the point of this blog, and the community jab in the comments didn't help.


No fail, but those last two were close. Watch your ass.

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.
