Cblog Recaps of 09/23/17 - Going to the Philadelphia Eagles Torture Zone



I'm gonna get this recap done while my Eagles are still beating my bitter hated rivals the giants. So if you notice that the tone of this -gasm turns dark the deeper it goes, just know that the game isn't going well.

It's been a hectic week, had a 3-day weekend and spent exactly 0% of the time stream VLR for Bass and vxxy and instead worked on adult things. Well if you call writing reviews and rankings for fantasy football adult thing.

The Eagles just fumbled the ball.

It's at moments like these that I like to look at the soothing word of Jim Jones. He was a master "boxer" who knocked out 900+ people with one punch. He says "I've got a hell of a lot of weapons to fight! I've got my claws. I've got cutlasses. I've got guns. I've got dynamite. I've got a hell of a lot to fight! I'll fight! I'll fight!!"

Words of wisdom.

Giants just tied it.

Have I mentioned recently how we are all going to die one day? No more Eagles letting me down, no more VLR streams, no more divisive morons in politics, no more shady business dealing from Warner Bros.? Just the end.

Giants just took the lead.


It's at times like these that I like to look to the word of Mahatma Gandhi. "Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary."

I think I'm going to leave this recap on that note. It's not super positive or super negative it is a blank slate. There are a lot of great blogs this week so it's a great day regardless of how this game turns out.


* - Bloggers Wanted Entry - Dere offers a very heartfelt and personal look back at how his early struggles with reading were overcome with a little help from Link and Zelda. Dere also sounds like he has the best parents in the world in this and it's such a great little read.

* - In the second part of their create your own Destructoid adventure, dephoenix takes us down a path of mystical double ended dildos and the old women who own them. This is defintely one of the most unique and creative things I've seen in my years at Destructoid.


A - Fellow Flixist writer Drew Stuart AKA Lord of Bollocks wants to kill me and placed this whopper of a retrospective look at the Uncharted series in my lap. This time looking at the final entry in Nathan's story, Uncharted 4. It's thorough so take this one with your morning coffee or cocaine.




R - Blanchimont just hasn't been finding games that they like recently for reviews, this time Digimon World: Next Order (I didn't even know they were still making Digimon games) is up for review and it's not looking good.

D - A bit of a light load this week from Donley about Boss 101. Mostly a few questions answered as well as the implementation of PS4 controller allowance in the game.




Alright that's it from me this week. Please be good to each other and yourself. Please? PLEASE?

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.
