Bruce Campbell is still the best thing about Burn Notice, and everything about that show is pretty good.

Huh? Nah. Aw, c'mon. What're you talking about? It's only... eight, nine, carry the one... seventeen, eighteen hours? That's pretty damn late!

So, yes, mea culpa, my apologies to all the recapketeers out there. I won't go into why Monday is going up after Tuesday except to say that sometimes, quite frequently in fact, I really wouldn't mind having a different job. Anyway. Lots of Topsauce yesterday, I'm sorry I made you wait for it. Let's get to it as swiftly as possible.


*-Short, sweet, and to the point: Yes, yes I DO like videogame music. Thank you for asking, and thank you even more for sharing.
*-Eh, it's a Beyamor musing. You know it's good.
*-Bushofghosts made up some truly sw33t stickers based on her Astro headset entry, and you can have one if you want. And want you will.
*-Commentoid is just getting started, and already Monodi tried to break it. Looks like the community is onboard with this new feature though.
*-A night of altered consciousness left Om Nom on Souls a little introspective and a lot more receptive to games without stories.
*-LK404 knows how to make Sonic good again. Let's hope at least some of these suggestions make it into Sonic Colors.
*-BulletMagnet's Magnet school concludes with this, the graduation ceremony. I can almost hear Pomp and Circumstance in the background.

M-Kytherno is biased FOR rail shooters and AGAINST Square Enix, if I'm reading this correctly.

E-Dtoid New England is planning a NARP August 21, the details are up on their blog.
I-Greetings to MJW282, who somewhat surprisingly isn't an adbot. Or maybe is just a reaaally good one.
I-And welcome to Bear Guts, who didn't give us much to go on. At least the banner's nice.
R-Sparkplay Media, developers of Earth Eternal, is no more. Our condolences, gentlemen.
H- Winged Kraby showed off his room, is spectacular Blur-O-Vision!™


R-Mason Rhade wrote up the Overlord DLC for Mass Effect 2. There's a spoiler warning, so I didn't go too far into it.
T-dontTrip posted some thoughts about which fighting games he'd most like to see crossover, and why.
T-PiZZaReaver 23 thinks some of the things he saw in the Black Ops trailer had better stay in multiplayer.
T-Mellor thinks complaining about the price of indie games is a waste of breath.
D-Alex Vostrov gave us an update on his upcoming indie game, Infested Planet.








F-You DO NOT INSULT THE TOOTHBRUSH MAN.


I tried this stuff at PAX. It tasted like liquid SweetTarts and gave me a rapid heartbeat for about an hour.

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.
