[Sunday] SMAGGS #1: Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix
Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix
Oh Christ, what can I remember about this game... I remember Grandma playing both Fear Effects right around the time the Playstation 2 was hitting the market, and everyone was so proud of Sony's commitment to keep making great games for the PS One. I didn't play either game; but I can remember Grandma's perception of different aspects of the game.
The art behind the graphics of this game is what made it appeal to Grandma. She loved the way the characters looked; strangely animated polygon renderings like something out of a newer Disney movie, only with boobs. And guns. Boobs and guns, I remember that much. Damn..... she even played this again recently, sometime last year but I can... only sort of remember.
Ummm.... Oh! I remember feeling uncomfortable when the main character seemed to get all trampy and sexy with Grandma sitting there in silence waiting for something to happen. That was an awkward moment. Also, her TV at the time sucked, so she was pretty close to it the whole time. I remember that classic Sony Playstation startup sound when she clicked on the console.
That's all I can fucking remember. Shit. She really enjoyed both of the series, but I can't honestly remember the exact dialogue she used in this one. Hence the title of this series....
[Another exciting episode coming tomorrow!!]
