So the other day I wrote a post asking the dtoid community to help me decide what game I should play next. I listed 6 games, that I currently own but haven't played yet, and asked which of them would be the best game to play now that I've finally beaten Fallout 3. Well the response from the community was pretty unanimous, and I would like to announce I have decided to play Shadow of the Colossus for my next game. I have actually already started and just got to the 5th boss, which is the flying Colossi. Damn this game is just incredible. Thanks so much for the recommendation guys!

Well I hope you all had a good day. I have to say that there were a bunch of really good blogs today, which is a nice change from the large number of crappy blogs that I had to read last weekend. It's nice to see people getting out there and finally writing something that's worth reading. Keep it up guys.

So let's get to the recaps shall we ...

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.
