LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/19/13 + Shadeisms

   0

Sorry for the lateness of today's caps, but I was out this morning taking a test for English as a Foreign Language. Because apparently writing a Bachelor's thesis in English, following English language classes for years and recapping English blogs every week is still not enough to convince some bureaucrats that your English proficiency is sufficient.

But anyway, no need for being a grumpypants about the whole thing. At least not any more than I've already done. The test is done, it went well although randomly blurting out English phrases in a room full of other people also blurting out English phrases is kind of awkward, so I've got a couple of days to spare. I still want to finish one paper before Christmas, and after Christmas I've got another exam to study for, but all in all there's light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll finally have time for video games again, not to mention these -isms. It's been too long. Much too long.

In the mean time, I'm finishing up a blog I teased last week (look for it tonight!), and I'm seeing The Hobbit tomorrow.
But first, of course, caps!  

* - Slippery and slidey, it's the best ice levels in video games. Some great choices in here too!

* - It feels like such a long time since Elsa blogged for us. Her new one is about the added value of customizable characters in video games, and as always its incredibly insightful.

S - More censorship? Of course, there is ALWAYS more censorship. Although to be fair I like the censored Bravely Default character better.

A - Christmas. Christmas has changed.

A - Neshoba shares a fun story about his 25th birthday gaming tournaments.

P - The Secret Moon Base makes a glorious return! With mustard!

P - We're already at the second episode of Not'Toid featuring everybody's favorite zombie overlord (who hates me), amazing frog and black grandma.





S - Destructoid is in its 15th chapter of being devastated and destroyed. I'm still not in it because Zombie Orwell hates me now.

D - I know nothing about this game nor its kickstarters, but it's a new dev promoting his stuff, so whatevs.

C - ctu33BSG remembers to play video games for the fun of it.

V - If you really wanted you could watch a video on some dudes favorite Pokémon, but we all know that Eevee wins.



- I know I should be excited about Smaug, but honestly I'm looking forward to Beorn so much.



- ShadeOfLight
May you always find water and shade

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.
