LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2009/07/13 and ScottyGasms

   0

Woo! Another Tuesday, another week of me doing a late recap. Keep in mind this is only recapping the cblogs that were done on Monday according to the time they were posted. :)

Really not much gaming happened for me last week due to apartment hunting, taekwon do training, as well as a super secret project that'll hopefully be pretty awesome. I did start playing Audiosurf again, and had forgotten about how addictive that game is. If you like music at all, even if you're one of those people who poo-poo on rhythm games, you really should pick this up. The fact that it'll work with any MP3 you throw at it just puts it over the top.

I did settle on an apartment yesterday though (will finally do a "setup" post when I'm moved in), so hopefully this week I'll have more time for gaming. Poor Ark in Terranigma has been sitting at the port of Spain for nearly two weeks now. :(

BigPoppaGamer and Atheistium also convinced me to get Battlefield 1943, which should make for some epic FNFs. <3

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.
