I'm posting the recap a little bit early tonight because I'm tired and really want to go to bed. I hope you all have had a good weekend. Mine has been crazy, and hectic, and lacking in the video game department. Actually, I haven't gotten to play games much at all in the last 2 weeks. Real life is sort of kicking my butt right now, which means the game playing has had to be put on hold. Oh real life, how to torment me.

On a side note, I went and saw the movie Knowing this week. Has anyone seen it yet? If you have, what were your thoughts on it? I thought the first 2/3rds of the movie was great, but the ending was just totally out of left field. I mean I didn't hate it or anything, but I didn't think they did enough to prepare you for the totally crazy ending. Watching Knowing is like watching Dante's Peak, a movie about a volcano that's threatening to destroy a small town, and then finding out that it was actually space aliens that were making the volcano erupt the whole time. I mean WTF! Where did that come from? Anyways, go see it for yourself and decide if you like it. But be warned that the ending will make your head spin out of control.

Now let's get to the recaps.

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.
