Welcome to another exciting Saturday recap here at Destructoid. I'm your host, SilverDragon, and today I will be taking you on your tour of the day's cblogs. Before we begin I would ask that you please buckle your safety belts, and please put all tray tables, seats, and video game controllers in their up and locked position. Please not that there is no smoking or flash photography allowed on this tour, but drinking of strong alcoholic beverages is strongly recommended. We hope you enjoy your tour. Thank you for choosing the Cblog Recaps.
Before we begin our tour, I thought you might like to know what you host, that being me, has been up to. Well I've spent the last week beating the first 15 bosses of Shadow of the Colossus
. By this time tomorrow I hope to have beat the final boss and moved on to one of the other many games I have to play. All I have to say is this game was absolutely incredible, and I can't believe it took me this long to finally get around to playing it.
Now onto the recaps ...

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
