LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/1/09 + Earlyisms

   0


Hey kids. Early recaps are early due to feminine troubles. No, I don’t mean that I’m on my period or I cut myself while doing the dishes. It’s a long story, and I’d rather take my mind off it with a bit of news.

I hate to be a whore for my work, but I recently got a gig writing for Negative Gamer. Yesterday I posted a story about my time trying to get LEGO: Rock Band for free from Old Navy. It’s probably my favorite piece that I’ve ever written. And if it wouldn’t be too much to ask, would you kindly take a look at it, and tell me what you think? I’m real proud about it, and more kind words/criticisms about it would really help me out.

Alright, now that I’m done doing the internet equivalent of hooking, let’s get to the recaps! On today’s show we’ve got brilliant storage solutions, a rare batch of news posts, and God in the Mushroom Kingdom.



*-Ever wanted to create the perfect gaming set-up, keeping the kids in mind? Everyone’s favorite craineum came up with the bitchin’est solution ever.

*-Want to ask any of the Divinity II staff a question? Ask WastelandTraveler, and he’ll send it along when he interviews them.

*-Hot damn, sister: Faith made some fucking saweet baby Mario and baby Luigi picture frames.

*-Aside from the link to a great article about video game documentaries, and thoughts about Assassin’s Creed 2, Rev. Anthony gets my seal of approval for the last line in this blog.

*-A bit of a eulogy for a fallen website, a Niero appearance, and frank discussions about gaming blogs make this and the comments within a good read.

*-As a kid, Excremento and his friend had a genius idea for Battletoads that he talks about in this interesting Musing.

*-randombullseye gives us a great look at the not-downloading side of gaming.



A-thefil finds a new and interesting way to give us his choices for his favorite games this year.

P-Those crazy kiwis and their podcast are celebrating 2009 with their last podcast of the year.

P-I’m not sure what kind of bullshit this is, but FAILCAST records ep. 55 tonight, even though ep. 54 isn’t out.



N-HORSESHIT: Some British company reneged on their L4D2 sales by taking copies away and replacing them with $4 vouchers.

N- The new SF4 won’t be using the networking technology GGPO, and neither will a lot of upcoming Capcom games.

N-A seemingly replacement character for Liara has been revealed for Mass Effect 2.

T-ayumix’s thoughts about Torchlight can be found by clicking this link.

T-Steel Brotha gives us an interesting list of games that should become XBLA/PSN downloads.

T-Capm Trevo gets all metaphysical on our asses by discussing God and Mario.



?-Not sure how I feel about this random grouping of Promoted Cblogs…

?-All I’ll say about this is that it’s an “interesting” blog, and the comments are terrifying.

?-Crunshii wonders if he should buy this particular laptop.



F-Fuck no.

F-Leave this kind of shit to the fine folks at xkcd, nerd.

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.
