First order of business. Everyone please join me in wishing a very happy 29th birthday to the invisible captain of Team Recap, Conrad Zimmerman. Conrad does such stuff as keeping the team in check and taking on new regulars and reservists just like we've done this week. Not to mention it was him who got us all together to reform Team Recap last year.

Now, all of you people out there with all 3 of this generation's consoles (that's Wii, PS3 and 360) I want you to think of this. When was the last time you bought a game for each console in the same week? I just realised after buying 'Splosion Man earlier (which you should all do by the way) that I've done that this week. 'Splosion Man for the 360, Wipeout HD Fury for the PS3 tomorrow and then Wii Sports Resort (yes I'm buying it) for the Wii on Friday. Can't freaking wait for Fury though.

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.
