I was hoping to be able to talk about Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright today, as today marked the long awaited European release date of this game that can't possibly be anything other than pure brilliance. As luck would have it though, my preorder didn't actually arrive today and is now scheduled for tomorrow at the latest. And since I'm not going to be home tomorrow, in all likelihood I won't get to solve puzzles, present evidence and point fingers until Sunday night or even Monday.
That makes me a sad Phoenix.
(by the way, you wouldn't believe how many pics Google has of sad Ace Attorney characters)
Still, once I do get it I plan to tell you guys all about it, and I'm even thinking of writing a review in the Cblogs. I know reviews aren't usually the most popular of posts, but this one seems fair game to me. At the very least expect some impressions and silliness from me somewhere down the line.
In the mean time I, shall we say, "acquired" a fan translation of Ace Attorney Investigations 2, but I haven't had much time to play it yet. So honestly that's pretty much a dead end for now as well.
What to talk about, then? Actually, I'm going to keep it short today. I'm supposed to be studying for an oral exam on information and IT law (which involves mostly freedom of speech vs. privacy) and I've been procrastinating for far too long already. So even though I could talk about how I've been watching a frankly insane amount of Doctor Who, finally beat the Elite Four of Pokémon X, getting near the end of Kingdoms of Amalur, "acquired" The Hobbit 2, and I'm starting to think about which games to ask my parents for my birthday in two weeks, instead I'll just do what I usually do when I got nuthin'.
Weâ€™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 â€śovercoming your fears in video games.â€ť How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassinâ€™s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you canâ€™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 youâ€™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 â€śOvercoming Fear: [your blog title here].â€ť It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. Thatâ€™s always a treat.
Youâ€™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.
