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.

Ask Grandma Hardcore

A lot of new games are out and Grandma has opinions- but it's your opinions we want to hear, so speak! What are you playing? Why? What do you think?

"Indigo Prophecy" or "Vaguely Purple Prediction?"

Inquiring Grandmas want to know!

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is taking my time.

    Though Fable and the new Spider-man have peaked my fancy, but alas I think I will wait for the new elder scrolls game before buying anything else.

    I've been playing We Love Katamari and a bit of Burnout: Revenge. I plan on finishing The Suffering soon so I can move onto The Suffering: Ties That Bind. And soon, Day of Defeat: Source.

    In other news, I have a little present for you folks.


    Thank you and goodnight.

    It's a shame Grandma doesn't play BF2, I'd love to see grandma on the battlefield being our squad leader or even the army commander.

    I can just hear it now over the VOIP "Oi asshole get away from the artillery"
    *OGHC [Teamkills] asshole*
    *You were punished for team killing*
    "FUCK!!!!! MOTHER FUCKER!! KISS my ass, you giant fucking ASSHOLE!!"

    Ahhh priceless...

    Has Grandma ever thought about playing online PC games ie. BF2, WOW, everquest or Counter Strike: Source?

    Playing Mk Deception on Game Cube. the graphics and game play are fantastic. It's got that old comforting Mortal Kombat feel to it. But forget playing it on the Game Cube! The game cubs controls are the only thing keeping me from fully enoying this game.

    Now what your take on Mk Deception Grandma?

    I played the Indigo Prophecy demo and I must say I was impressed at the unique gameplay.

    Ah, the delightful We Love Katamari is taking up my time currently, as well as World of Warcraft (as always). I've been planning to finish up Sly 2 before I grab the third iteration, and come to think of it - I've still got a copy of Final Fantasy VI that needs finishing! Oh man... ::shakes head:: And of course there is the usual DDR Max or DDR Max 2 (the selection of songs is WAY better on the former) for my exercise - I may not be all that great at DDR, but 30-45 minutes on a dancepad at a good clip will work ANYbody into a nice sweat. ::grin::

    Oh! Almost forgot! Is Grandma keeping an eye out for Shadow of the Colossus as well? It's due for a release on 10/18 - I've just got my fingers crossed that it's got a better framerate that it did at E3, but man - MUST buy it. The power of the minds behind Ico compel me!

    Take care, be well, and GAME ON!

    I've been playing Burnout Revenge and Sid Meier's Pirates. I may try and start up either Ico or Eternal Darkness again. Both are great games that Grandma should take a look at if she hasn't played them already.

    I've been playing Katamari Damacy just to beat it, then I plan on playing We love Katamari. Still keeping busy with FFXI.

    What does grandma think about Game Tap? Is she interested?

    Okay, the comments section have been giving me a hard time posting answers for you guys; so I'm going to expand the post answering your questions.

    There's a two games that are really getting my motor going...Shadow Of The Colossus and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for XBOX 360. Colossus looks incredible, the demo was cool, and I can't wait to play it. Oblivion...god damn! I'm fucking speachless. I'll buy a 360 over Playstation 3 just because of the screenshots of that game! It also helps that I absolutely loved Morrowind. What does the almighty Grandma Hardcore think?

    Peter Parker is a jerk, and in the new spider-man game you can be Venom and kill the crap outta spider-man, atleast that's what the commercial told me, and commercials never lie. NEVER.

    Peter Parker is a major wanker. If only he weren't so DUMB.

    Whoops! I was Captain Awkward Phrasing while posting that (no more posting at 1:04 in the MORNING, foolish brain!), and I know that with the knee injury - plus common sense - Grandma would NEVER do the DDR. That is just my personal drug of choice to get myself some exercise (because going to the gym is annoying and boring, bleargh), and what I've been up to lately.

    But seriously, We Love Katamari. That two-player mode is gonna make my husband and I bellow like idiots trying to move that katamari around, but it will be AWESOME (and not just because I say so). Hee!

    Also, I'm wondering about Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. I've never liked the series, but I find myself oddly drawn to this one. I've heard good things so far, but I must see what you guys think. ::grin::

    Be good, and GAME ON!

    I've been activelyBuy GW2 Gold playing We love to Katamari plus a little Burnout: Reprisal. I actually plan on concluding This Battling before long so I can start This Enduring: ConnectionsBuy GW2 Gold Which Emergency. And shortly, Day's Wipe out: Source.
