Hey all.

I was going to write something great here (Riiight, suuure I was) but then I ended up talking to Megastryke on Facebook for an hour. So I think I'll take a page out of SilverDragon's book and just start things off with a couple awesome pictures of a squid.



This thing's called a Vampire Squid. Does that rule, or what? Images came from here.


*-Keep a shot glass full of eye bleach handy for Handy's new feature, Fanart Flops. (NSFW)
*-Help Elsa celebrate her 250th conversion of a thinking, feeling human into so much fender meat.
*-LK404 has some great tips on how to make the most out of your gaming budget.
*-Tubatic's one of the biggest Mega Man fans around, and his predictions for the upcoming Mega Man Universe have me getting excited.


A-Trioptical thinks a recent announcement in M.A.G. is the gaming equivalent of chocolate-covered-bacon-on-a-stick.
A-Enkido and Bluth's Banana Stand have been duking it out in the C blogs regarding how pretend violence and real violence are related. Interesting stuff, but Beyamor's right about the teeny tiny monkey brains.
S- Magnet School's "electives" course causes Elsa to get all alliterative.
M-SAMA1984's Musing looks at the idea of taking a character and all their personality traits from one game to another.
P-Podsumaki recorded episode 9 tonight, all about MORTAAAAL KOMMMBAAAAT!


W-Beyamor's contest post says that in a way, everyone is a winner! But in another, more accurate way, Stevil is the winner.


S-DtoidSF had a great time over the weekend, attending the Final Fantasy concert called Distant Worlds.
B- Happy belated Birthday, Metallion! And thanks for the Apple Pie recipe.


T-LoopyChew has some concerns about the upcoming Power Gig: Rise of the Six String.
T-Though it's months from release, Ninjasnake thinks people are being too hard on BulletStorm.


A-Corduroy Turtle's girlfriend added some awesome artwork to his game-related limericks.
F-Gyrael wrote a beautiful blog about what cinema means to him.
S-BenelliM4 demonstrates a possible reason why Topher used to use the term "Yard Sale" when something was awesome.


C-This isn't formatted very well, and the content gives off a strong whiff of troll. Watch your ass.
C-I'll give ya a pass since the forums are down, but this would really be more appropriate over there.
C-Same deal. I hope the forums come back soon.


F-It's a great song, but it's not a blog.


-(Qalamari)

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.
