LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/19/09 + SilverDragonisms

   0

I went and saw Monsters vs. Aliens this weekend. Has anyone else seen it yet? I personally thought it was just ok. It was a little bit more of a kids movie then I thought it would be, which was unfortunate. Pixar seems to be the only animated studio right now that can seem to find the right mix between adult and kid friendly movies. Oh well. If you haven't seen it, but you're thinking about it, I recommend waiting until the DVD comes out.

So now onto the community and the recaps. For the most part, today was another dreadful Sunday. A couple of people wrote up some good stuff, but for the most part there was a lot of fail going around today. As you can see, the Failtoid section is FULL of blogs for you to take a gander at. The most amusing blog of the day was from a GameStop employee who actually attempted to defend GameStop and it's business practices. You should check it out and decide for yourself whether he did a good job or not. Try not to be too insulted by him when you read his blog though.

Well let's get on with the recaps shall we ...

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.
