Unfortunately, Garison had an engagement that he couldn't cancel, so yesterday's recaps will be posted Monday. I would have covered him, but it's been a busy, busy day! A friend my wife's flew in last night, and she's here for the week. As such, all you're gonna git is Saturday's recaps, starting from 12AM Dtoid mean time!

In other news, I've been beating a ton of games that I've put off, or just completely missed at launch. I've just completed Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, Cave Story, Ghostbusters, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine; and I'm currently working on Zeno Clash, Dead Space, Mass Effect, The Witcher, Half-Life 2 (omg!), Ninja Gaiden II (lost interest a while ago), COD4's single player, and Braid. All of these games I haven't beaten before. How do I accomplish this? One at a time folks, one at a time!

I also won a contest today!. Thanks to all who gave me a "congratulations" wish: I didn't expect to win!

*-Oh...my...God! This existed!?
*-I wept, then busted out Pokemon right after reading this piece from Bwark-Kupo.
*-Lotta topsauce tonight, fellas. I can relate to pascuz46's "favorite edged weapons" blog, because I was obssessed with swords and ninjas as a kid.
*-Our own Ashley Davis should just go into the children's book business, and put video games on the map!


A-It's been a while since thefil has blogged, so read this awesome article on Devil Survivor.


This is one of the coolest fight scenes I've ever witnessed. I bought the movie on DVD pretty much for this scene:



Speaking of Harry Potter, I think Takeshi hates me because I ruined the ending of Half Blood Prince by jokingly spouting the popular "kill" meme in a random blog he read. Takeshi, I'm sorry!


E-nilcam gives us an awesome recap of EVO 2K9 Day one. Thanks Nilcam!!! <3
E-whormongr made a snarky comment that inferred I shouldn't have won today's contest ;), but he has Robotron arts and crafts, so it's ok!
C-Destructoid's own Jonathan Holmes talks about all the awesome Wii games he's been playing. Get crackin' Holmes!
C-Aurion gives us an update on what he's been up to. Read it, and get to know him :D


M-snoogans775 wants you to listen to this awesome take on Kraid's lair.


T-NihonTiger90 muses on Street Fighter IV's nude code.
T-A "snapshot" review of WarioWare Snapped from DaedHead8. Ho ho! Snapshot!
T-Wild speculation of new World of Warcraft races, commence!
R-A nice 30-60 minute snap judgement on Battlefield 1943 by Relic Kylias. I'm always a big supporter of the philosophy of "read everything you can before buying", so read this if you're considering dropping 1200 space bux on the game.
N-NukaCola updates us on an awesome Final Fantasy speed run for autism. Check it out!
V-Barcode gives us another Broke Ass Gamer Episode, but censors the swearing. If done needlessly, swearing can be childish, but if done right (Spoony Experiment, Yahtzee), it can be hilarious!


R-Watch some old woman midly relate this post to video games.
R-This post is really weird. Some guy with the account name Super Ghosts n Ghosts posts a video entitled "Super Ghosts n Ghosts", then advertises Super Ghosts n Ghosts in his about me page. Spam fail? I mean, I don't feel like watching the entire two hour video, but it is a free movie!


Hoborg didn't blog today, folks!

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.
