Not much by way of Shadeisms today, since I already shot my load in my own blog last Thursday. In case you missed that, I went to my first ever gaming convention last Sunday, and had a great time! I also received a Steam code for The Walking Dead Season 2, which I'm giving away to a lucky Dtoider. You can still enter, so be sure to click if you want in.
Other than that, I played plenty of video games this week. I continued my quest through Dishonored, got deeper into The Wonderful 101, got some Mario Karting in, and am nearing the end of Fire Emblem: Awakening. Everyone in my army is married now except for the future children, Frederick, Libra and Gregor. It's a sad affair for those three, but I simply ran out of females! I wonder if God ever has this problem?
Finally, this week I went to the American embassy in Amsterdam to go get my visa approved. It turns out that exchange program visas are incredibly easy, because I got my approval no questions asked. I've now officially been granted access to the US of A, and most of the other preparations are already complete as well.
I'll be coming for you exactly one month from today, so we're getting very close indeed.
Hide your girlfriend. Be prepared.
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.
