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 #7: Fatal Frame II

Sorry it took so long with this one; this game has been particularly difficult. Despite our ominous message at the end, another video is already in the works!! Godspeed!

[WMV; 01:45: 3.23mb]

This one was shot with our new camera that isn't really new, but it sure beats the shit out of the little webcam. I am seriouly becoming worried that the game has some sort of evil manifesting itself in our equipment. And that's what makes this job fun!

--Enjoy! More on the way!--

--Update!! If you long time oghc readers look to the menu on the right, you will notice two little changes. The first, most important element is the videos are still there! I was piggy backing on my university's servers for a while and it was only a matter of time before they took them down (lots and lots of traffic and bandwidth, holy FUCK we used a lot of bandwidth.) The old directories should work for a little while, but the folks over at GamerGod.com did an incredibly generous thing- they put the videos on their servers. When you download the videos now, the only difference is the directory from which they come. Thanks to CmdrSlack; Grimwell; and Selby over at GamerGod, we can all watch Grandma swear at the tv. Make sure you go over there and tell them how much you appreciate it.

The second big difference makes me feel unclean. There is a paypal button underneath my e-mail address for all you crazies who keep saying "let us donate! You need a decent camera, asshole!" Well, you're right. The Optura 20 I was so excited to find is stuck at 1/60th Shutter Speed; with an ungodly small aperture that makes everything dark. I needs me a cheap MiniDV camera, probably a Wal-Mart Sony Handicam; just something to get the job done for everybody. Now begins The Great Grandma Camera Campaign; afterwords the donation button will hopefully be taken down so I can sleep at night.

Thanks everybody!!
