LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/31/09 and 11/1/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I'm only 6 days away from my 30th birthday, and I have to tell you all that I honestly can't believe it. I don't feel like I'm almost 30. I feel like I'm 22 still, which I guess is a good thing. Part of me is a little freaked out though, because I had all these things I wanted to do by the time I was 30 and I haven't done any of them. Where did the time go?

So I would write more, but I'm extremely tired right now because I've been playing Borderlands all freaking day. I finally beat it tonight after 22 hours of play time. The game is freaking awesome, but the PC version suffers from a lot of problems. If you are interested, you can find my official review of the game up on Gamer Limit in a couple of days.

For now though I need to head to bed. I've been living in the world of Pandora the entire weekend. Tomorrow it's time to get back to the real world. I hope you all had a good Halloween.

Now onto your regularly scheduled weekend cblog recaps.

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.
