I'm posting the Sunday recaps a little bit early tonight because I'm really exhausted and I need to relax before I head to bed. Let me tell you a little bit about my busy day. First, I woke up and beat Bionic Commando. I was so utterly shocked by how simple the final boss encounter was that I immediately took it out of my XBOX 360, where it will never return again. Have any of you beat Bionic Commando yet? If you have, what did you think of the ending, or the whole game for that matter?

Next, I sat down with my PS3 and beat Shatter. I followed that up by sitting down and writing a review for the game, which hopefully should be published tomorrow morning. Just so you know, I absolutely loved the game and scored it a 9/10. For only $7.99, you should all go out and buy this game, right now. I'm serious! Stop reading this recap and go buy it. You won't regret it.

I finished the day up by grilling some pork kabobs for me and my girlfriend. I used some nice thick center cut pork chops, with onions, and some fresh Green Peppers grown right in my back yard. I included rice and corn bread as sides, and enjoyed a delicious meal. It was awesome. Finally, I sat down for 2 hours and did the recaps. Now I'm gonna sit down and watch some television before bed.

So how was your day?

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.
