LONG BLOG

C blogs of 8-30-10 and Qalamarisms

Ouch. Rough day in the blogs today, you'll notice a fair amount more fail than usual, even by my normally lenient grading standards. Last week it was suggested that I add a caption contest or something similar to the post. While I lack The Toothbrush Man's GIS and Image-fu skills, I suppose I'm up for a challenge. Let's see what you guys can do with a few of my favorites:







Speaking of images, it occurred to me that I still haven't posted a lot of my PAX pictures from the last couple of years. With any luck I can remedy that before this weekend, so look for it on my personal blog.


*-Handy's Fanart Flops always reminds me of the cutaway during Futurama's Anthology of Interest: You've seen it, you can't un-see it! This week he takes on Pokemon.
*-You need to see the great job Guncannon did editing Mr. Destructoid into the Scott Pilgrim vs the World game. You NEED to.
*-RandomBullseye's Musing this month is an epic in five parts. If you don't have time to read the whole thing, at least skip to the end.


A-Dennis C Scimeca raises an interesting point: wouldn't game developers take in more money if they didn't spend so much unnecessarily promoting their games?
S-Alphadeus' piano journals have swiftly become one of my favorite things about recapping Mondays. Beautiful instrumental piano music makes it much easier to whomp up a fresh batch of BBcode.
S-SenorDoucheoisie is donating to Ronathon for every point he earns in TF2. A somewhat odd method of fundraising, but if it gets results who am I to judge?


C-MrAndyDixon's baby avatar contest got its deadline pushed up because of Reasons. If you're reading this, it's too late to enter.


E-Got any questions for ThatGameCompany (creators of FlOw and FlOwer)? Maurice Tan, AKA Professor Pew, may be able to ask them for you.


N-AMD is retiring the ATI name. Crunshiii has all the details.
T-LK4O4 speculated about what the Bit.Trip.Fate teaser image might reveal.
T-With Dead Rising 2 imminent, JC83 ruminated on the first game's high and low points.
T-Mattrodroid likes wizards, but has apparently never heard of Harry Potter.


F-Our resident samurai stepped out from his mighty fortress atop Mt. Beard to bring us this trailer for AMC's film adaptation of The Walking Dead.
M-Want some free game soundtracks? Hammershark's compiling a list.


R-If news of the price hike made you want to cancel your Live subscription, Crunshii is already seven or ten steps ahead of you.
C-It's not a bad idea giving Gordon Freeman a voice, but it could use some polish before you unleash it on the world.


S-This story had already hit the front page by the time this blog was posted. You've gotta get up pretty early to get a scoop from Mr. Destructoid.
S-Complaining about clones in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's lineup at this point is not entirely dissimilar from complaining that Moe and Larry should never have hired Shemp. It may be true, but it's a little late to bring it up now.
F-Yeah. I can tell why Silverdragon stopped before this one.
F-A cross post shilling a podcast by some people you've never heard of.
F-A two sentence blog which is basically an ad should not find itself surprised to end up here.

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.
