LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/26/09 + Thanksgivingasms

I hope everyone is fat and happy! I know I am! I made sure I was ready by doing my exercise routine before the meal was served. Nothing builds an appetite quite like working up a sweat!

I had promised my mother that I would join her in visiting Toys "R" Us for the midnight sale. I thought it would be fun, but waiting in that long-ass line was not fun. There was another line just to check out of the store. And you could just feel a chill in the air, that some disgruntled shopper could snap at any moment. That's why I don't do the Black Friday shit. This was a one-off, mom.

For all the bitching and moaning I do, I am so thankful for what I've got. I love my family. I love feeling needed and appreciated. I just love the simple things. A bunch of you have stuff you are grateful for and decided to share them with us today. Some cbloggers had a lot to say, while some just had quick holiday wishes. Today was a special day, so no matter how short your post was, no one got failed.

Drive-by wishes from Klipsched.
Cowzilla is thankful for the recap team and a whole bunch of other people and things of lesser importance.
pendelton celebrates a very Fallout Thanksgiving.
Sadistic actually remembers The Critic.
RoG from I-Mockery provides a Duck Hunt-themed video.
Eaten by a Grue is not thankful for a couple of things.
Pixelated Lilac has dance fever.
wanderingpixel loves fire.
StRAWRberree is employed. That's something to really be thankful for these days.
EternalDeathSlayer is thankful for stuff.

We've got a long month ahead of us. Let's keep our spirits up. Hey, at least you weren't forced to eat tofu turkey:

*- Kwazy Nate says video games can totally be romantic.

*- Stevil is really, really, really pumped for Rainy Woods... I mean Deadly Premonition.

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.
