LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 05/13/2009 + Sykisms

   0


A few weeks ago Jim Sterling started a 90s Day over Twitter, as a result he linked to a Youtube channel where someone had uploaded all 4 series of ReBoot. I've been a happier person ever since, I'm genuinely surprised at how well that show has aged.

This will be my last recap for a few weeks as I'm off on holiday to Canada next week. YEAHHHH!!

Also, there might be a new Ł5 challenge blog tomorrow. I will certainly be doing a Ł5 challenge in Canada. Hard to think of how I could top last week to be honest.

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.
