Hello once again my darlings. It's a shame I have to constantly share my love with you all on Mondays of all days, but let's just see this as a nice way to start the week, and to get prepped for the weekend. <3

Gaming wise things have been interesting. I'm officially "done" with LEGO Batman. I was hoping to play it to 100% completion, but I just couldn't bring myself to. The biggest disappointment was oddly enough that they just put too much stuff in it. Too many different abilities, too many obscure puzzle solutions, too many power ups that may be cool but you won't unlock until the end of the game when it won't matter. Just... too much. I'm hoping to be able to trade it in for a copy of LEGO Start Wars: TCS. Sure it's simpler, but it was more fun. Since stopping that I've started Assassin's Creed, and after 3 of the 9 assassinations I can see where people were coming from when they said it gets repetitive. I'll post more thoughts after I've made more progress.

I also got a few packages in the mail over the last week, as part of the Dtoid amazing game trading forum of justice! The first was from Wedge which game on Friday, and the second from Funktastic came today. I'm still waiting on Dyson's package, and when I do I'll share just what I got. In the meantime you all should go to the forums and check out what people have to offer. :)

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.
