Was a stressful week on Destructoid, at least it felt that way to me. Lots of debating about games, gender, journalistic integrity, etc. Not that those things aren't important, but sometimes I think we all need to spend more time playing games and a little less arguing about them!
Still, I've found time for some fun. Poker Night 2 was on sale, so I picked it up. I suck at Poker, but I wanted it mostly for the lol's since I love all the characters in it. Would love to see Moxxi as a player in the next one. Oh, the innuendos.
And there's no real evidence for it, but I like to pretend your silent character is Gordon Freeman. Hey, it's possible!
A lot of people are discussing which console they're going to get this November, and whether it even matters. I'm having similar thoughts. Just not about consoles...
The 760 is getting rave reviews everywhere, I guess for $260 it's a pretty smashing card. I'm going to hold out for a 3GB version, though, and maybe a drop to $200ish. My HD6870 still kicks enough ass that I can bide my time...
Oh oh oh oh... in case you missed the news, the new Mortal Kombat Komplete is finally coming out on PC Tuesday. It's only $30 and you can snag an extra 25% off on GMG with the voucher "GMG25-BAWQB-8UQWG". I barely play fighting games, but for like $23 I couldn't say no. Hence the backlog from hell. Or heaven. First world gamer problems, eh?
Okay, enough of my -ismz. May I present your lovely Saturday recaps, which include some tasty sauce and good reviews.
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.
