LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 3/31/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


Today, I took some time to really think about the impact this site has had on me. Aside from being your most humble/greatest Cblog recapper ever, I’m now officially a part of roughly 3 organizations through this site. First is the Destructoid Artisans, which you can read about on the front page. Second is Backwards Compatible, a gaming features-oriented blog and podcast that I am a part of, along with some of the goofiest gamers I’ve ever met. And, finally, I’m now a part of a super-secret, double-probation blog began by another Dtoider (though, info about that will be given on a need-to-know basis for now). I just want to take this time to thank not only Niero for such a great website, but also the fine folks who I talk to daily, all because I met them through this site.

Alright, enough about my hard-on for green robots, let’s get to the recaps! In today’s review, we look at a Nintendo kid falling for SEGA, Dtoid karaoke, and more Robbert Summa than you can shake an underage stick at.

By the power of Grayskull, these are…THE CBLOG RECAPS!!!

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.
