Grandma Vs. Psychonauts The Sequel: The Rumble In The Jungle
Here's a tiny example of Grandma's homecoming:
"Okay, so now I have her mind.... now what the fuck do I do?"
Grandma - "SHUT UP! SHUT THE FUCK UP! CHRIST!!!"
[Game] - You're technique is dull... HAHAHAHAA!!
Grandma - "This guy is the most annoying cocksucker I have ever- HOW DO YOU FLOAT INTO THE MUSIC NOTES?? It doesn't always work, look! I can get so far then- FUCK!!!!!"
"Oh my god. You did not just fucking- OH MY GOD."
"See, I have to use telekinesis to move this dude, and then he fixes the bridge."
[Game] ...I can't wait to die for his cause!
Grandma- "Yeah, I bet you can't."
"What the fuck is this? Tim! What the fuck is THIS?"
Grandma - [slams hand onto arm rest]
Me - "What?"
Grandma - "It starts you ALL the way back here. And I mean ALL THE WAY. That's no god damn fair..."
"Look at this guy! HA!"
"You ....fuzzhead- just jump; just once- JUMP! JUMP GOD DAMMIT!! [...] FUCK!"
"I quit. This is impossible. These assholes kill me every time. I quit! I give up!"
[30 minutes later]
"MotherFUCKER!! God DAMN! It's about FUCKING TIME!"
Grandma's back, bitch! And she has plenty to do. God of War is so close to being played to its ultimate end, after which the "replay value" comes into effect- to show people who come over for Thanksgiving "Hey, you have to check this game out..." World Championship Poker is still her current XBox Live addiction, and she's looking for a game to keep her Gamecube company in those long dark nights ahead, after she's done with Psychonauts.
Quothe the Grandma- "Thank GOD I'm back. Hospitals are a pain in my ASS."
--Updates on the way! We're back to a steady schedule of Grandma goodness for everybody.
Also- Thank you all for the support you showed Grandma. The comments, the e-mails, the get-well e-cards, everything- it meant a lot to her. It especially helped when everyone here wasn't sure what was going on, what could have been wrong; preparing one's family for the possibility of open heart surgery, not trusting the doctors, freaking out, etc.,... You guys stayed cool for us. I'm sorry I couldn't respond to everyone's e-mails when the shit hit the fan, I know you guys understand; I'm just putting that out there. You have again vindicated my respect for the online community as a whole and of what it is capable. Many of you are gamers, some of you aren't- but you all helped out Grandma.
From the bottom of our hearts- Thank you.
Now let's rock the fuck on--
