LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/12/09 + Pendeltonisms

So I decided to stop by an Asian grocery store near my house today, since I never have before, and I’ve heard good things about lychee juice. Well, while there, I picked up a bottle of what I thought was lychee juice, but was just some other drink. Feeling thirsty, I popped off the cap in the car to take a drink. Only, there was no cap to be found, only a glass bead lodged in the top to stop any drink from coming out. It took me 15 minutes to open up that fucker. Anyone know of an easy way to open said bottle (there’s Japanese moonspeak and a picture of a whale on the front)?

Speaking of drinks, I bet you’re all thirsty for come cblogs, aren’t ya? Well, in today’s blogs, we’ve got a shit-ton of videogame music, City of Heroes news, and the return of everyone’s favorite failure.

Cblog recaps: Good for nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, and diarrhea.

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.
