For those in the UK, it's now Election day. Polls open at 7am and remain open until 10pm. Get out the fucking house and vote. I'll be obessing over coverage all day, reinforcing my hand for millions of facepalms and laughing my ass off at the comedy that always arises (intentional or not) from various pundits, actual comedians (Channel 4's election coverage is hosted by Jimmy Carr, David Mitchell and The One True King Charlie Brooker) and Jeremy Vine. I am an election junkie though, so you'll probably be best served just watching the funnies on C4.

VIDEOGAMES this week, or rather videogame. Super Street Fighter 4. Juri's awesome, the online is awesome (not endless Ken's anymore) and the reworked Trial mode is awesome. This is a Game of the Year contender far more than the original SF4 was and if you have any interest in fighters and don't have it yet you need to find an excuse.

It's been mentioned before, this entire sentence is a link to the Humble Indie Bundle, I recommend you pay at least $10 for it if you like videogames.

Once again I have to mention, the European Wii store still hasn't got Cave Story. I WANT TO PAY MONEY FOR THIS GAME.

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.
