GTA and Other Hit and Runs

Well I finally did it...I tried my very first Grand Theft Auto game. Let me tell you of my great success...

I started the game and was driving away with my cousin when the camera started doing some unauthorized movement. I ended up with some sort of top down vision and couldn't see where I was going. What the...??? I was ready to quit then and there (wonky camera is my biggest gaming pet peeve) when my darling husband said, "Wait, what are you pushing up on the left thumbstick for?" Duh, I'm driving...was my snarky reply. It was then I learned that I was not to push up and/or down but only side to side to steer the car. Apparently the "wonky" camera was due to my "wonky" steering. Well, I never! After a few dozen more stops and starts, I finally dropped my cousin off, shouted "screw you cars!" and took a nice relaxing stroll up the street...

Till some frakker in a red Geo looking car decided to run me over and took half my health. That was enough for me to jerk his smarty pants backside out of his car and steal it. That'll teach you to run over someone buster! Muwahahahahaha...

Except that the little bastard hung on to the side of the car and I dragged him for about a mile of so. He finally let go and was hit by an oncoming car. Well, I told him to let go! And off we went...

I say "we" because the guy was going off to the clubs with a buddy or something because when I finally couldn't take anymore of driving without pushing up on the thumbstick, the passenger guy jumped out of the car with me and started chasing me! Everytime I got enough ahead of him for him to be off camera, RuFfNeCk would say, "OK, you lost him" so I would stop and he'd be right on me again punching me! So I then decided to "be a man" as it were and kick his butt back to the Geo....

Except that I couldn't figure out which button was the kick ass button and I finally just ran away until he was off camera again. At one point I heard tires screech and then a very audible thump. I ran faster laughing at the irony that out of the three of us getting hit by cars, I was the only one alive...and still unable to drive a car...

What the heck is wrong with this game???

What The Heck Is A User Name?

My caring thoughtful husband decided to "format and reinstall windows". What a sweetie...

What my sweet caring thoughtful husband neglected to mention was that I would log on to find that all of my bookmarks, passwords and sites were "formatted and wiped". (Why it would never occur to me that this would happen escapes me...I blame the baby) So instead of bringing you exciting tales of gaming amazement, I'm now spending my Saturday morning trying to locate every site I've ever been to and the passwords that go with them...

Except that got boring so here's a Weezer video...

Pregnant Gamers For The Win!

I finally decided that it was time to really start playing games again and I think the baby is giving me super gaming strength because I totally whomped everyone's online backside in Mario Kart for the Wii. In your face anonymous kart drivers!

RuFfNeCk has been GTA'ing himself into oblivion every night and has asked me to try it out. Here's where it gets tricky: I've never played a GTA game before. Not because I find it objectionable and not because I'm one of those gamers that will only play "Arty-No-One-Knows-About-
It-So-It's-Cooler-Than-All-Other-Games" games but I've never played GTA for one simple reason: sandbox. I'm not the Leader of Linear by any means but I can't have free reign in a game. I start 20 missions and completing none *cough*Oblivion*cough* and I wind up wandering around endlessly, laughing as I chase people around with a flamethrower while avoiding the cops. *cough*Crackdown*cough* I say give me the illusion of freedom while secretly leading me around by the nose *cough*Call of Duty 2*cough* and I'm a happy woman...well, I am a little happier if I have a flamethrower...
