Oops! I nearly forgot about Friday's recaps! I've been spending way too much time playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf this week, which was a gift from my boyfriend (now that I have constant access to his 3DS since we're living together). It was a gift and a curse, since I don't know how I'm expected to get anything important done when there is a new Animal Crossing to play.

In Animal Crossing, I became the new mayor of Inaba (we're both really big fans of Persona 4), and quickly got to work building my house, meeting the neighbors, and catching fish. At the moment, my small house is mostly an aquarium of sorts, housing some of my favorite animals (squid, octopus, nautilus, piranha, ocean sunfish). I haven't found too much actual furniture that I really like yet.



My neighbors are all pretty cool, for the most part. Genji and Lobo are my favorites so far. Pancetti and Chops are pretty weird, and the other neighbors are OK but mostly forgettable. I always hope I get Bob or Octavian, because they're awesome, but I don't think I've ever had them in any of my Animal Crossing towns. Oh well.



Also, Nook's shop hasn't been selling any tools except the fishing rod and shovel all week, and it's starting to piss me off! No bug nets, no axes, no watering cans, no slingshots... give me options, Nook! I can't wait for the store to expand, but I'm not sure when that will happen.

Anyway, these recaps are late enough already so I better stop talking and just post the damn thing! ...and also I can get back to Animal Crossing ;)

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.
