Hey nerds! How was your week last week? Mine was pretty much: work, PS4, snow, and Stick It To The Man. All you need to know about work is it blows and I want a new job soon. More importantly, my roommate bought a PS4! I connected my PS+ account to it so we've been playing a bunch of Resogun and Warframe. While the PS4 is a lot of fun I gotta say, I am glad I'm not getting a personal one for awhile.



We also have Contrast and Blacklight; it's kind of great having four free games for a new system right out of the box. We haven't even bought a physical game yet! The game we've played the most though is Netflix. We seriously watched half of season two of American Horror Story in one sitting last night.

Then there was the snow. I'm sure many of you saw some of that shit this week too. In fact it's snowing outside my window as I type this. Snow sure was a lot more fun when you were younger. Oh well, maybe if it snows some more I can get a group together to sled. Any of you enjoyed the snow yet or have you just been bitter like me?

More recently I've been playing through Stick It To The Man on my Vita for review. So far I'm really digging it. I know Ian recently gave it a pretty good score. I get a big Tim Schaffer vibe from the game and I love it. The humor has been a little hit and miss though. I look forward to completing it, look for the review on the next episode of Pocketoid!



Have a good week you cute idiots!

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.
