Custom artwork by Mikey, just another of the great benefits of being a member of Dtoid UK! Also yes I do actually own that hoodie. I post this partly because it's FREAKING AWESOME and also because the closest thing I've come to playing a game this last week has been dicking about (not literally, not yet anyway) in Second Life. I know, I'm kinda ashamed of it too. Turns out that....thing is a lot more bearable if you have something of a tour guide though. I'm not quite comfortable enough to go in there alone yet though. Last time I was left alone I nearly got raped by a rabbit.

Oh yeah, if you want to see the other Dtoid UK peeps Mikey's drawn (he's doing one everyday) then look at the gallery of them here. Currently featuring Halfleft, Darkandroid, Nikmunroe, n0brein, Gemsi, ThePhil, Anus McPhanus, Young Scot and myself. Until tomorrow when he adds another one. I think it's Malcor next.

Also if you like the idea of dungeon crawlers but hate their horrific learning curve then I recommend a little indie game that got an excellent update recently called Desktop Dungeons. It's basically a full roguelike where games can be completed within 5-10 minutes. Also try Spelunky if you haven't already, because it's fucking Spelunky.

I'm really freaking tired as well, so please bear that in mind reading these.

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.
