Grandma Is All The Way Live!
So the lady in the bright yellow hornet-like DHL suit bangs on the door, holding a small package like it contains Gwyneth Paltrow's head. She asks her question very carefully, so as not to mispronounce the words like she's reciting some dreaded message for the family of the accused.
"Hell-o; is Grand-ma Hard-Core here?"
"Um... Yes, I'm her grandson." She hands me the package and looks in my eyes as if to say "I know you do horrible things behind those doors. HORRIBLE THINGS!!"Yay! It's from Microsoft! TriXie over at XBox Live is a big fan of Grandma and sent her a starter kit. And a t-shirt and stuff! Hooray! Oh but here's the best part:
Big o'l comfy headset with MajorNelson toppad and a beautiful mic so grandma's obscenities will be unimpeded by noise and irregular clippage! Fuck yeah! Thanks Trix!
So now we have an XBox Live account. You may get to meet Grandma on the field of battle, and probably kick her ass at first because she's not used to playing online. Her gamertag?
Just so you all know who you're up against. Look for us!
--Here's a reminder from the MTV article- It's true Grandma's hands start to hurt after playing most FPS games, so if the game is SplinterCell Chaos Theory; Halo 2; or Ghost Recon, you're probably encountering me, I'd say- 6 times out of 10. If it's Outlaw Golf; Crimson Skies; or MechAssault; it's probably Grandma. We're both on Conker and some others; but you can tell- at least this week while she's getting used to it; that her headset won't be voice enabled. (She doesn't want to scare anyone yet) More updates on the way!--
