Old Grandma Hardcore

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

    who doesnt love that first night with a new game? looks like shes having a blast! It would be like totally awesome if you had someway to show a split screen of sorts where we could see Grandma playing while also seeing her reactions, although i assume this would require a second camera to do properly... oh well you cant have it all huh?

    And forget about the little n00b at Circuit City.. most are pry just little punks working on comission and lacking any real useful knowledge.. I'm sure if most customers didnt fuck with them at every chance he wouldnt have assumed you were shitting him when telling him your grandmother needed the game, not you. Nature of the beast i suppose.

    he doesn't really need two cameras to capture the feed of what she is doing on screen. You can capture what is on the TV direct to a PC video card with the right setup.

    Although what would be cool is just watching the onscreen action and then hearing Grandma in the background... watching the onscreen character die to noise of aaaawww fuck.. lol

    He shot my box...

    Lol - I know exactly where she is. Those fuckers were pissing me off when I first played it and kept getting the box blasted

    I'm sure she got past it already, but you just have to hold R2 in front of the box (until he goes back all the way with his groan) and kick the fucker. I think it takes only 6 arrows for the archers to break the box, so use the other boxes for cover.

    Oh, and for button-mashing mini-games (the Circle button specifically against the Kraken and Minotaurs), I had to take my right hand off the controller, and jab Circle with the point of my index finger like crazy. It didn't work with my holding the controller like normal and mashing Circle with my thumb.

    I think you can jump into bed with the womens after the Kraken. Let us know if it can be done and what Grandma thinks of it. :-)

    I totally thought this blog was bullshit until I saw the fuckin' video! Kick ASS Granny! I knew it was for real when she reached for the game case to see what was going on with the controls. Nobody elses granny would do that. GO GRANNY!

    It is Grandma'sDiablo 3 Items brand new difficult task, consequently a lot more recently for updates to be with her unbelievable challenge against the all-powerful forces from the almost holy sepulcher. As well as Greeks. Whatever is Billig WoW Gold a lot more severe.

    We've placed a HUGE emphasis on the weapon. It pretty much determines everything we can do diablo 3 gold. If this isn't perfectly rolled, it destroys the whole setup. As we've already determined, we've got a lot riding on d3 gold Crit Damage already. To add salt to the wound our weapon has to roll + Damage AND% Damage AND Crit Damage AND a socket in order to be considered worthwhile.
