LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 07/03/09 + Garisonisms

   0



I've been spending a lot of time away from Destructoid and the internet lately. School is out, so I've been partying and hanging out with friends a lot, but it's really nice to get back to the Cblogs and read everyone's stuff.

It was a really awesome day for Cblogs by the way, bravo guys. As you can see by the heaping bowl of topsauce sitting in front of you, you are in for one hell of a meal. Even all the failblogs don't outweigh the win today. I started my recap at 8:30 PM, and it is now 1:00 on the button. Solid 4 and a half hours of Cblog reading. Just what I needed.

One more thing, I just wanted to give a new community member, Elsa a shoutout. I saw her frequent comments around the site today, which are all very thought out and intelligent, and went back and read all her previous blogs. Great stuff, can't wait to see what great content you can bring to the site. <3

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.
