I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. I know I did. Did Santa bring you guys lots of games to enjoy? Unfortunately I did not get any games this Christmas, but that's because there really wasn't anything left to get me. I already bought every single game I wanted this year for myself. My girlfriend, however, did get a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, so we are both really excited to get to play that.

I am really excited that I get all of next week off work. My goal is to wake up every day and play games until my girlfriend gets home from work at 5PM. It's going to be awesome. In that time I should be able to knock out Torchlight, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Assassin's Creed 2. I'm also going to an all day Modern Warfare 2 LAN party on Wednesday, so that should also kick lots of ass.

Well I gotta go, but I'm going to leave you al the with "12 Days of Destructoid Christmas" song I wrote and sang. I hope you enjoy!

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.
