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 Is Fucking Excited!

Over the past few weeks Grandma has had her eye on a game coming out in 2006, and she would like to share with the rest of the class. Today she saw some videos, she saw some screenshots, and by God she's fucking ready to enact one man's journey through the destruction of Ventura Blvd. with a shotgun and some fire. That game, my friends, is American McGee's Bad Day LA.

Let's face it, when Tom Petty, The Doors and Bob Seger all like the same place, something horrible is bound to happen to it. Here's the video that made Grandma so excited, and this is a woman who refused to see Serenity with the rest of us because she didn't watch Firefly; so if this can make her hands shake and her lips dry like she just noticed your baggie of coke- its got to be interesting.

"That's fucking COOL! ...Tim, we have to get this."

Even better, it's coming out for XBox as well, so she won't have the same Keyboard:MurderYourFamily association she had playing Alice.

2006 just got even sweeter for Grandma.

    SWEET! YOUR GRANMDA IS AN AMERICAN MCGEE FAN!!! That is fucking awesome!

    Dude I ENVY YOU.

    My Grandma would think American McGee was an Irish band from Boston. I LOVED ALICE, I played that game back in high school, I collected the art and everything.

    FUCK. YEAH, Tim. FUCK YEAH.

    Oh my. To steal the line from that kid at the end of The Incredibles:

    That was AWESOME!

    Thanks for putting this on my radar. Now I'm just hoping that our "friends" Jack and Hillary don't get anything enacted that will stop it from being released and that it's for the XBox and not the XBox 360 as I won't be getting one for quite awhile.

    LOL. At the official site in the information section the Game Overview says "gameplay so simple and fun that even your grandmother could play it". That's funny... :)

    Sudoku truly draws some similarities for the Rubik's Cube, yet another logic based game World Of Warcraft Gold that was introduced within the late 20th century. Rubik's Cubes call for the user to line all the very same coloured squares up on exactly the same side, and call for a few of exactly the same thought processes that Sudoku does Buy World Of Warcraft Gold. The largest distinction with all the Rubik's Cube is the fact that it doesn't need continuous logic to resolve, unlike Sudoku, and can be solved through straightforward trial and error and experimentation.

    Appreciate your Diablo 3 Goldadding this in this little radar. Now I'm simply just hoping our "friends" Connector as well as Hillary don't get anything at all enacted that may prevent it from being released knowning that it can be for your Xbox 360 system but not the Xbox 360 system once iGW2 Gold kaufen will never be you get one hours.
