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.

Grandma Has Gone Insane

Grandma's current $13.00 guilty pleasure is Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem for the Game Cube. Her only complaint-like comment has been "Jesus, can't you ever play as one person and stick with it?" This "M" rated Silicon Knights epic has been around for a couple of years and, given the mass of e-mail telling her to try it- there is probably very little I could tell you about the game; you already know it by heart.

One of the "huh, that's weird" factors in EDSR is every monster you encounter just makes you a little bit more crazy, just like in real life! One's sanity meter goes down and must be replenished lest you want to play the game as though it was Jhonen Vasquez's latest nightmare. The sounds of Grandma wandering the hallways in some ancient dystopia are filled with the imagined screams of the innocent and the violent meeting of steel and stone.

Try working with THAT in the background.

Grandma has been able, so far, to figure out the puzzles relatively quickly- and the combat targeting system is subtle enough for her to master. Now it is simply a matter of finding every little thing in every level to make her happy. You will know when she isn't.

    She'll get over switching characters all the time . . . and when she's using a character she likes less than another, she'll have something to look forward to. How's that for incentive?

    If she wants to collect everything, she'd better buckle up for a couple of playthroughs -- it's impossible to do it all in one run!

    Your girl friendbuy D3 Gold will recover from changing heroes continuously . . . then when she's utilizing a persona the woman wants lower than one more, your girl friend will get something to look Guild Wars 2 Goldforward to. How's that for incentive?
