Slightly early recaps today due to me being extremely sleep deprived right now, the energy drinks can only hold it for so long.

DTOID UK CONTEST!! WOOHOO!! Trust me, I have something truly epic planned for my entry. I can't say for sure but it involved a chopping board, a sieve and a packet of bacon.

Also in Dtoid UK stuff, this weekend I will be joining my allies Phoenix, Hammertiem, Nikmunroe, ThePhil, DAN GAHLAY!, Anus, Fusion, Justice, Corican, Shakey, Surplus, Malcor, Avalon and IRC's furry sex bear Gandy in London. There we shall eat fine burgers, drink OREO MILKSHAKES, drink alcohol and play arcade-style videogames. In between all that some of us will also be going to a super secret invite only Christmas party being thrown by a certain game developer. You may now be jealous of how awesome Dtoid UK is.

One more thing for you, hopefully you read my recap of the week's XNA releases on Xbox Live (seriously, City Rain is brilliant) earlier this week. I was planning a list of another 10 excellent games for you to try out but I had a better idea. So next week I'll kick off my countdown (split Chad-style into 4 parts) of what I believe to be the 10 best Xbox Live Indie Games released this year, leading up to me announcing my XNA Game of the Year. You may now either begin speculating or continue not giving a toss.

Nothing, good job the main site has loads of contests going. Including this rather good one.



E - DTOID BALTIMORE ASSEMBLE FOR MAGFEST!!
C - Yoshi. Cute dinosaur or victim of horrific abuse?
C - Zelda movie?

S - Runescape still exists?



N - Germany's trying to ban the imported version of Modern Warfare 2
T - Quick thoughts on Continuity, that flash game that was on the front page
T - Some longer thoughts on FF4: The After Years
R - WryGuy reviews Mega Man Zero 2
D - Robotbebop's game still isn't looking too impressive
V - New Alan Wake trailer, if you're not already sold on the game.



A - Random NVGR Suitcoat Avenger art. Why? Why the fuck not?
A - Wow, look at what Pendelton made Megastryke
S - Diverse got some Mother figure, I can't read his blog posts, the sidebar is too distracting



L - Here's what we know about Medal Of Modern Warfare
L - Late night angry IM conversations are always funny, especially when they're ripping into Haze
C - Why are these disappointments? Elaborate in words so I don't have to watch your crappy video. Also Tekken 6 a disappointment? GTFO.
C - Sorry but this is a forum post, not a bad forum post, but still a forum post.



F - Incoming pile of fail
F - #2
F - OK I lol'd at this one
F - #4
F - #5
F - And then a poor intro blog also manages to whine about the 'Good Old Days'

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.
