Welp, it's Friday again! I feel like I've done nothing but work all week... hummmmm...

I beat Of Orcs and Men, and the game seemed to only get better and better as it went along. I'm really glad I decided to check that one out! But I already talked about that last week.

Other than that, I played some Don't Starve on Steam, which annoyingly gives me an error message and shuts down rather too often. It always seems to happen when I'm resurrected after a death, or after I travel through a worm hole. It's a great game; lovely artwork, awesome survival gameplay. I just wish it would let me play it for more than 15 minutes at a time.

I also found out that Fez, which I got as a gift from my boyfriend, will not run on my computer, so that bummed me out. I'm starting to think that maybe I should just avoid buying any more games on Steam until I can afford a better gaming computer. Buying games and not being able to play them is pretty much the worst. So far I've been shafted by Amnesia, Antichamber, The Baconing, Bit.Trip Beat, Fez, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Snapshot, Spirits, and Zeno Clash. Granted, half of those were gifted to me, but I still feel bad not being able to play someone's gift. I'd really like to buy Monaco, La-Mulana and Mark of the Ninja, but I'm just not feeling very lucky.

Of course, maybe I'm just an idiot because I don't always fully understand the system requirements information. It's just me being lazy and paying the price. Oh well.



Humph.

* - Andy does not want to see Shadow Warrior toned down, dammit! I'm not actually familiar with Shadow Warrior, but it does seem silly to take away something that made a game unique to begin with.

A - The Salty Hippo believes the Assassin's Creed series has lost some of its narrative charm.






E - djnealb is planning to host a NARP at his new house in Austin! Dtoiders in the area should certainly check it out!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Monk can't sleep...

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Burning griffins!

F - Friday Night Fights on Nintendo + No hosts... :(

R - A review of the original Sonic the Hedgehog? Hmmm... it's almost more of a nostalgic journey, which would have been more interesting. Why give it a review score?

R - A review of Four Swords Adventures? Ehhh...

P - Shuuda gives us an overview of Telepath Tactics.

D - It looks like POStudios is about to launch episode 3 of their new game.

$ - May 10th UK releases and bargains!





R - Mike Cosimano made some Jonathan Holmes-themed ringtones! Neat!

F - Copypasta woooo, yeahhhh!

F - I guess I don't know much about Doom. Is this cool? The post is kinda lame anyway.

F - Or we could just not make that game.

F - Just a video, no other information. Lame.

F - Forums, we have them.

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.
