LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 8/14/10 and 8/15/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I've taken a break from Starcraft 2 to read the cblogs and present you with this recap. I'm honestly not sure how much longer I'm going to be playing the game as hardcore as I have been. I've probably put in well over 100 hours in the last 3 weeks, and I'm kind of getting burned out on it. Besides playing tons and tons of multiplayer, I'm presently spending lots of time playing through the single player campaign again on a harder difficulty setting. Once I'm done with that, I'll probably be spending a lot less time with the game.

A lot of my friends were shocked when I posted my official review last week on Gamer Limit and I didn't give it a perfect 10. I mean don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the game, but there are a few small flaws that kept it from the perfect 10 score. If Blizzard could make a couple of tweaks to the multiplayer balance I think it could be perfect.

The next big I'm looking forward to at this point it Metroid: Other M. I really wanted to play it at E3 this year, but the line was typically well over an hour long and I didn't want to waste that much time waiting for a game that was coming out in only a few months. Rest assured, I'm super excited about this game and can't wait to dive into it.

Well, I think that's enough about me for one night. Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.

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.
