Hello friends! I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday, I know I did. My boyfriend got me a Dreamcast with Shenmue for Christmas, so that was awesome and unexpected! I never knew anyone with a Dreamcast growing up, so I never got to play any of the cool-looking games it had, and I've recently been having a very strong urge to play Shenmue for some reason. And I will get around to playing it, but there's another game that I'm currently obsessing over, and I feel I need to finish that one first.



La-Mulana has seriously got me hooked. Granted, I haven't been able to figure out all of the puzzles so far without aide. I had to shamefully use a guide to figure out the puzzle to obtain the Fruit of Eden, along with a few other minor things, but for the most part I'm trying to stay away from guides. I think I've done a pretty good job of figuring most things out on my own. La-Mulana is super cryptic, though, and full of riddles and subtle hints. It's very difficult and mysterious, but that's definitely part of why I like it so much. I've had to pull out a notebook to take notes on while I play, and I keep revisiting areas to make sure I didn't miss anything in the background or skim over any of the tablets too quickly.

The last thing I accomplished in La-Mulana was defeating Chi You in the sacrifical pit, and now I'm pondering what I should do next. I still haven't defeated Zu yet (he's really tough!) so maybe that should be my next goal. I did just unlock the second floor of the Endless Corridor, which is probably where I should go next, but it's baffling me at the moment. Regardless, I'm determined to beat this game (and hopefully with as little help from guides as possible).



No topsauce today :(

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.
