LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/17/10 + Garisonisms

   0



As many of you probably (or probably don't) know, I used to be the full time Cblog Recapper for Fridays! I loved doing it, it made me feel a lot closer to you guys, the Dtoid Army, but I had to quit on account of having other shit come up all the time.

When I heard that the Recapper Team needed someone to fill in for tonight, I happily volunteered. You know, just for shits and giggles eh? I have to admit, it takes a lot of work doing this all the time. If you try to read most of the blogs in a day, it takes me about 3 and a half hours to get it all done. Try to remember how much work goes into getting this done every single day, kay?

Yeah, I guess I should finish this off with telling you guys about what I've been spending most of my time on lately. That would be my personal blog. I find it hard to write about only games, so it's a lot of NVGR shit over there. Check it out if you want. :)

PS: I love you all.


Congratulations guys! There was a fucking SHIT load of topsauce material for today. :D Some genuinely awesome writing, I enjoyed reading all of your stuff.

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.
