LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8-21-09 + Old Skool Y0j1mb0isms

   0


Ladies...Gentlemen...it's been far too long since I've done a recap. Have you missed me? It's okay if you didn't, for I have missed you nevertheless. The best job here in Dtoid in my humble opinion is this one right here. Reading all the cblogs you create on a daily basis. Whether they are good, great, amazing or fail, what everybody here has to remember is that without you blogging, Destructoid wouldn't be half of what it is now. You, the community, are the lifeblood that runs through our gaming robotic entity. While recapping last night's blogs I noticed how little there was to recap. Why back in my days of recapping we had quite a bit more.

I'm here to urge everybody to blog. You don't need to be a fantastic writer to blog y'know. All you gotta do is express yourself about whatever strikes your fancy effectively. The stigma of failing shouldn't deter would be closet bloggers because we all eventually fail before we get better. Hell, I've failed more than my share here but it's the pursuit of clarity, of getting my point, my opinion out and be understood, whether right or wrong, that drives me, as it should you.

To those who haven't blogged in awhile, or those who are lurking in the shadows, enjoying this fine site, I ask of you one thing. Blog more. Know that only through your participation will this fraternity called Destructoid grow and flourish even more.

Now let us take a look at what was last night on the cblogs. Spoiler Alert: There were many blogs that were funny, unique, awesome and even some fail. Lets begin with:



*-This blog wasn't created last night but it NEEDS to be a TOP PICK regardless.
*-Three things to improve the Pokemon Series.

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.
