LONG BLOG

Hello friends! Today (as in Saturday, not Friday) marks the one-year anniversary for my boyfriend and I! Not sure what we have planned for the day, but there will probably be lots of Japanese food (from our favorite restaurant) and maybe some co-op Spelunky action. I can't wait :3



In other news, I'm back to obsessively playing Persona 4 Arena. My current goal is to conquer the Score Attack mode with any character (but probably Teddie, because he's the only one I'm really good with). Score Attack is freaking crazy. The AI is apparently set to a level above the highest difficulty setting, so they basically just go ballistic at you as you fight to stay alive and take them down. There are 13 rounds, and so far I've only made it to round 4, which, ironically, is Teddie. I can't manage to beat the one character whose moveset I'm most familiar with! Although he is granted abilities that I don't have, such as using a triple Circus Bear attack, Teddie's most powerful, and arguably cheapest, attack. The first time I tried Score Attack mode, though, I figured I'd never even get past the first round (Yosuke), but I've since managed to do that, so I have (a slim) hope that I can eventually beat it. Just gotta keep practicing!

I'm also starting to pick up on some minor details about the game that I often miss during the hectic battles, which are making me love the game even more. I'm starting to hear more of the hilarious lines of dialogue uttered by the characters while fighting, like Teddie saying, "I'm spinning more than usual!" when he's about to be All-Out Attacked or Chie shouting, "Everyday's great at your Junes!" while auto-comboing Yosuke. I also never realized how funny Elizabeth is. Her attacks are so rage-inducing that I usually miss what she's saying.

It would be cool if Atlus released some more DLC for this game (and not just color swaps or additional navigators). There are still several Persona 3 characters they could add. I'd definitely enjoy playing as Koromaru or Ken! Or maybe they could expand on the story mode to reveal the mastermind behind the tournament. Or they could just work on making Persona 5. That'd be cool too.



No topsauce today... :(

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.
