Hello! You might be wondering where Qalamari is. Well, we decided it might be beneficial to us both to try switching up days. We might wind up going back to our original days, for this week you'll have to bear with us and our CRAZY scheduling!

I saw Watchmen tonight, and I gotta say I don't remember the last movie I watched that had more penis than breast. Glowing blue penis at that! I was discussing with my roommates about how Dr. Manhattan should've been naked when he fought in 'Nam, and I commented on how he could've used his penis to crush the soldiers instead of just blowing them up.

Gaming wise, I starting playing my recently acquired copy of Link's Awakening DX. Just as good as I remember, and since the colour is provided via the Super Game Boy instead of the Game Boy Color I can play it on my nice 42" LCD screen in full colour!

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.
