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.

Video 25: Grandma plays Dead Space

A couple things about this one: first, it's dark. This is how Grandma insists on playing it (she was the same way about the Fatal Frame series). Second: I noticed she's sporting the Left 4 Dead 2 shirt she scored from PAX :)

Try as I might to get her to use the saw in a more, say.. practical manner, she gets by just shooting the holy hell out of everything until she has nothing left in her inventory. So, her equipment upgrades are a bit lacking. She just got the Level 4 suit at the end of chapter 9 (that's where she is in the video).

But it's not like I can talk. I can't help her in Dead Space. I'm really quite horrible myself.

Thank you again to Ian for the incredible game. Grandma's very near the end of the story on Normal mode, and, per your suggestion, she's going to take a crack at a greater difficulty.

With the lights on, maybe.

Game on!

    The ending to this video was amazing. "Fuck! I did it!" xD
    Also...how can we see the 1st 11 OGHC videos? Everytime I find a link to one of them, a window comes asking for a username and password. But still, no access to those videos. Help? I wanna see the Psychonauts video again.

    GAME ON!!!

    Oh man, such a familiar scenario... I watched Brian play through Dead Space (since, frankly, I'm a super scaredycat wuss who self-identifies with game characters too much - to the point when scary movies or books don't faze me but I FREAK OUT at games), and man, that Ripper. Used that thing like a surgeon. A horrible, demented surgeon. But those hideous baby critters! How much of a pain in the ass are THEY! And then they have those little worm things that are even smaller and harder to hit! ARGH.

    But yeah. The art direction in that game is top notch. Many props to Ian Millham, especially for recognizing that Grandma is awesome and needed a copy ;)

    Hugs and all the best to you guys - GAME ON!

    -A!

    From a Grandma (71) who plays World of Warcraft, you rock. I just bought a new gaming computer to handle my addiction. Along with headset and Razor mouse. I can't remember all the buttons on the Xbox controller and the GK's holler at me when I don't go in the right direction, but I'm 90% from being a leverl 80 and have beat them at WOW. Good gaming to you.

    My preferred becoming the Playboy magazines. When placed on the ground Cheapest Runescape Gold, enemy players will probably be unable to ignore the sight from the female form. Even though they crouch down and marvel at the graphic pictures ahead of them World Of Warcraft Gold, they leave themselves wide upon for a bullet towards the back with the head. While this sounds extremely exaggerated and unrealistic this really is genuine, 100% authentic gameplay!
