LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/11/09 and 4/12/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

This was a really weird weekend in the Dtoid Blogosphere. First of all, there were only 7 blogs posted on Saturday, so I didn't even bother posting a recap for only 7 blogs. I mean seriously, there are over 35,000 Dtoid members, and only 7 people decided to post a blog on Saturday. That's pathetic!

With such a slow day on Saturday, I was hoping Sunday would be a better day, but unfortunately I was very much proven wrong. Now the number of blogs definitely perked up, with lots of people posting lots of blogs, but honestly, a large percentage of them were just absolutely horrible. Now look, if you read my recaps frequently, you should know I don't ever call out the community like this, but today you all really let me down! I mean the reason I do the recaps is because I enjoy reading all the blogs people post and telling the other community about them, but today I didn't enjoy the experience at all. In the end I ended up being very generous, because while I only failed 2 blogs, I really wanted to fail around 8-12 of them.

All in all, I think it was a pretty horrible weekend for the Dtoid blogosphere. Now there were a couple of shining gems, but they were few and far between. If I didn't look really closely I probably would have missed them in the jumble of crappy blogs posted everywhere. Suffice to say. I really hope the community doesn't have this bad of a weekend again. We can do so much better then this guys. We really can!

Now 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.
