LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 7/24/10 and 7/25/10 + SilverDragonisms

I honestly can't believe that Starcraft 2 comes out in less than 24 hours. It's been an extremely long 12 year wait since the original Starcraft was released, but on Tuesday it will all be worth it. To say I have extremely high expectations for this game is truly an understatement.

I've spent the last 4 months playing the beta and loved every second of it. I would spend $60 on the multiplayer alone, and that's not even what I'm looking forward to the most. It's the single player that really has my interest peaked. After spending the last 2 months reading tons of Starcraft novels, I know the lore inside and out, and I really look forward to seeing where the story goes.

This is Blizzard we are talking about here people. They simply don't know how to make a bad game. Can you imagine what the industry would be like if every single company put as much time, love, dedication, and hard work into every game they made like Blizzard does. Sure, there would be a lot less games to play, but they would all be spectacular.

Suffice to say, when Tuesday gets here, the only place you'll find me for the next couple months is on Battle.net playing Starcraft 2. If you are interested in playing with me, let me know below in the comments and I'll add you to my SC2 friends list.

Now let's get to your regularly scheduled weekend Cblog recaps.

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.
