LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 7/14/09 + Pendeltonisms

Late night tonight, folks. I recently bought me a PSP for the 2nd time, and, since I’ve got nothing better to talk about, here’s a shitty 1 sentence review of every game I’ve played on the system since I bought it:

Lumines 2: The best puzzle game, ever, hands down.
Mega Man: Powered Up: The best Mega Man game, ever, hands down.
Gunpey: The 2nd best puzzle game, ever.
Mega Man X Maverick Hunter: Great, but it bastardizes the Storm Eagle music (i.e. greatest gaming music ever).
Patapon 2: OMG THE CUTTEST THING EVAR.
Crisis Core FF7: If you liked/loved any of the continuing saga games/movies, you’ll love this.
Popolocrois: Why aren’t people talking more about this awesome RPG?

And that’s it. Now, as for the recap, all I’m gonna say is this:

Jesus, people, you need to start posting your amazing blogs on OTHER days of the week. The Topsauce is getting pretty crowded on Tuesday nights!



*-Tell WryGuy how much you’d like him to make a homebrew Dreamcast game.

*-Anyone looking to learn a bit about games journalism MUST check out this great article by NihonTiger.

*-kauza shares the tale of his youth spent playing The Battle of Olympus in his new feature, Stories from The Past.

*-I, the Author: Props for making Home sound somewhat appealing.

*-A furpile of games featuring anthropomorphic animals, as compiled by Randombullseye.

*-Yes, I know, it’s a pretty well-used topic, but check out this great blog by SirKicksalot on morality in games.

*-As if you didn’t need ANOTHER reason to go in the IRC chat, check out this shit.

*-Wow, check out this bitchin’ poster SuitcoatAvenger made for one of my favorite John Carpenter movies.

*-An interesting article about the problems with moving overseas while still wanting to keep your Steam and XBL accounts alive.

*-A peek at Wry Guy’s new review series, and why reviews today kinda suck.

*-A great run-down of some of gaming’s best boot-up screens, with the king taking the top honors.

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.
