Grandma's Game Hunting: The Suffering; Ties That Bind
She remembered that one her regular magazine subscriptions, Computer Gaming World, came recently with a demo disc for the PC version of the game.
At the little desk here in her bedroom there are two PC towers; mine and Grandma's. Grandma uses her computer to check her e-mail, look up strategies on GameFAQs, read your comments, appease her Sid Meier fix, and install every god damn demo she comes across. I use my computer to work, so I make it a point to never install anything, for The Workhorse is a hungry animal. If Grandma wants a decent framerate playing Unreal Tournament and Quake she sticks them on her computer, knowing I'll hide under a tree somewhere and cry if Macromedia takes too long to render, all the while muttering about "New Programs Installed." The whole problem would be fixed with a simple A/B Switch but every store around here looks at us like ...well, we are crazy... but the point is they don't have them.
If you haven't guessed already- I was forced to install the thing on The Workhorse, my baby. Also predictably, it didn't work. She got all the way to the loading screen that shows the layout of the standard 101-keyboard with 98 different functions to learn and the screen went black- a small whirring noise that can only be the tiny screams of thousands of chips and processors went silent for a moment, and it restarted.
This could be another Fatal Frame curse, we're not sure.
If Grandma is going to try The Suffering, she's going to need a copy on one of her consoles to do it. So what have you heard about this game. Have you played it? Let Grandma know.
