LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/23/08 + SilverDragonisms

   0

That's right it's time for another exciting installment of the daily Cblog recaps, brought to you by yours truly, Silverdragon. I'm taking over for Pendelton tonight, since he took over for me last night. I have to tell you guys there was a lot of good stuff to read today in the community blogs. So good in fact that I found 4 posts that I highlighted below in the topsauce section that I honestly think everyone should read. There also weren't a lot of fail blogs, which is always a good thing. The fewer fail blogs the better.

So today was my final day of work in the year 2008. I don't plan on being back in the office until January 5th, which is almost a full 12 days off. Trust me I am extremely excited. How do I plan on spending those 12 days you might ask. Well I've had Fallout 3 sitting on top of my XBOX360 for the last month unwrapped, so I plan on finally opening that up and playing it. From what everyone has said, including Yojimbo, it is was of the best games of the year. Yes I do believe 12 straight days of Fallout 3 is the perfect way to end 2008. SO what are you guys planning on playing over the Christmas break?

Well let's get to the recaps .... but first here's your dragon picture for the day ...

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.
