Today I woke up extra early so that I could make it to my local Best Buy at 11AM for the beginning of their $10 game sale. If the thought of waking up early to be some place at 11AM on a Sunday is hilarious to you, you should know I typically make it a habit to not even wake up before 11AM on Sundays. Suffice to say, my goal was to get to Best Buy in time to pick up a copy of Soul Caliber 4, Devil May Cry 4, and Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword before they were all sold out.

Well when I got to Best Buy there was already a line of about 20 people waiting at the door. I was tempted to just turn around and leave right then, but my awesome girlfriend convinced me to stay anyways. It's a good thing she did because I ended up picking up 2 copies of Soul Caliber 4 for the PS3, and a copy of Ninja Gaiden for the DS. I almost got a copy of Devil May Cry 4, but other people had already grabbed up all the copies before I got a chance to snag one. Suffice to say, I left Best Buy very happy indeed. Now I have an extra copy of Soul Caliber 4 that I need to give away. I just need to decide who to give it away to ....

Oh, I would also like to mention that my Carolina Hurricanes shut out the New Jersey Devils tonight 4-0 at home. I look forward to the 7th and final game of the series on Tuesday night! LET'S GO CANES!!!

All in all, it was a great Sunday. Now time for 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.
