LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 12/9/08 + Pendeltonisms

   0


So, I just got another copy of Chrono Cross in the mail, having lost my older version a while back. Honestly, I have no idea why people think the game is shit. I might go so far as to say that, not only is Chrono Cross a worthy successor to Chrono Trigger, it actually bests the game in certain aspects. I’m thinking about writing a series of blogs addressing the critiques everyone gives towards the game, such as the battle system and story. Anyone care to tell me why you think CC is shit?

Well, let’s be honest, you didn’t come here to listen to me gush about a game a lot of people hate. YOU CAME HERE FOR CBLOG RECAPS! Well, that’s too bad, because today’s blogs are filled with massive amounts of fail, most of which come from Dtoid’s unofficial stable of failblog writers. I’m gonna guess you know who you are. Other than the fail, the blogs give us voting for video game awards, a witch who turns into a sausage, and the introduction of a new Dtoid beard.

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story…

*fwoosh*

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.
