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.

Come to Mexico with Grandma and me!

Holy fucking shit, you guys.

Holy shit.

Dig this: let's say you have some free time this November, say from the 13th to the 18th. Let's say there existed a cruise that went from Long Beach, CA to Ensenada, Mexico that just so happened to fit into that schedule. Let's also say (hypothetically speaking of course) that on the first night of the cruise is a concert by VIDEO GAMES LIVE. Just to fucking START. Let's say this whole cruise is packaged for gamers. Let's say Cloris Leachman was a guest star, just to tag along for the fun of the thing. Let's just pretend for a moment that there would be a full casino, fine dining, Wii tournaments, handheld contests, the works.

Let's just think about the notion that there exists a short, inexpensive vacation for gamers to just relax in the Pacific ocean soaking up that Mexican sun and talk about games for a few days. The very PURPOSE of this aquatic mobile congregation of like minded technophiles is for us to knock back a few drinks and argue on the virtues of Western vs. Eastern RPGs. Just for the hell of it.

And, just for shits and giggles, let's say Grandma was going to be there to bullshit about games right there with the rest of us.

Well goddammit, it's happening.

I'm not even kidding.

It's not some podunk rowboat fitted with a television and an N64 with a single copy of GoldenEye for us to fight over, no. This is a huge-ass Carnival line CRUISE.

Look at this shit:


Pools, spas, restaurants, and the best damn video games concert in the WORLD. This little cruise has been officially added to their world tour schedule, slated for November 14th, 2008. If you want to see them, this is truly the way to do it. You simply CANNOT do better than this, I SWEAR to you. Of the whole trip, this concert is what I'm looking forward to the most. YOU SHOULD COME, DAMMIT!

Grandma's not much of a drinker, to be honest. She wants to hang out with you guys deckside and talk gaming. I'm a responsible drinker (never the day before I have to work and never before driving) and I'll be completely sincere: I want to feel the pleasant buzz of Mezcal and Tequila with the Pacific wind on my face. I want to buy you guys a drink. I want to test the functional impairment of Wii playing after six shots of whatever Agave-based liquors they have to offer. It's a vacation. That's what vacations are for. I'm not an obnoxious drunk, I'm quite giddy in fact! So you can make fun of me right along with Grandma if you want to. Or join me! It's all good!

Let's go to Mexico, hang out with Grandma, watch what may be the most brilliant concert of this decade, bullshit about games and just have a blast doing it.


Sign up for this thing.

And, because you know us by now, here's some full disclosure: Grandma isn't getting paid to come to the cruise. I'm not getting paid to advertise it. She was invited and emphatically said yes. We're just thrilled to go. Grandma doesn't whore herself out to anyone, not even for a cruise. She and I both like to keep things honest. It's just easier that way. So let's be honest. Drinks and food are probably going to be expensive. You folks that have been on cruises before know what I'm talking about; it's a fucking cruise. That's how they are. I'm going to work on saving a lit bit to make sure Grandma has a good time. You should do the same for yourselves (but seriously, hit me up for a drink, I'm always happy to.)

It's a shorter cruise compared to a lot of the mega two-week cruises so you don't have to bring too much unless you intend to gamble, which- by all means do if that's your thing. I'll keep mentioning it throughout the year in case you forget where to register. If you don't yet have your passport, GET IT NOW. We aren't just parking outside Baja and looking ashore, we're GOING TO MEXICO. So you need a passport. The cruise is in November so you've got lots of time for the State Department to screw up your application and get it right.

Let's go! I'm serious! How often to you get to go away from things for awhile? Make an impulsive decision to treat yourself. This is going to rock.


Grandma is currently tackling Veteran Mode on Call of Duty 4.

You have no idea how happy this makes me. It wasn't that long ago when Grandma was terrified of FPS games. Sure, she played them. But she never really counted herself as an FPS gamer. She dug RPGs and platformers, she'd tell the press, but apart from that she always said she liked some of the more difficult FPS games like Perfect Dark and Halo with the caveat that she completely sucked at them.

I cannot take credit for any of that. I never pressed her to play any game or genre, I just kicked back and watched her do her thing. As you could tell from some of the videos, like when she played Resistance: Fall of Man, I'm not much of a coach, either. I know fuck all about FPS strategy other than that which got me through the level. She did this on her own.

I'm pretty sure the progression of skill level went something like RE4 - Halo - Lost Planet - Resistance: FoM - Doom 3 - Gears of War - Halo 3 - Mass Effect - Call of Duty 4. She is getting through checkpoints on Veteran difficulty that I simply could not. It's a beautiful thing to see. So far she is to Act II: One Shot, One Kill. The last bit of sniping at the end of the mission is starting to make her, well.. let's say "frustrated."

You bet your ass we're going to have another video here in the next week.

She hasn't attempted multiplayer mode yet; hell, she doesn't even have a single achievement for Team Fortress 2. I think it's in part because she's intimidated by those online who know who she is and also because Xbox Live wasn't exactly cooperating in finding matches when she was deep into Orange Box. I think that's why she moved on to Mass Effect so quickly.

When Jennifer with Sony sent Grandma Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction, she also included Heavenly Sword just in case Grandma was into that too. Grandma popped it in after she was done with Mass Effect so she wouldn't neglect any of her systems. She likes to give each console an even break when she's done with a game. To play a Wii game, then a 360 game, then a PS3 game seems to lower the wear on her setup and in some karmic way she's not hurting the feelings of any one of her soulless machines. (Don't laugh, I think we all do it to some extent.)

But Heavenly Sword and Grandma just did not get along. Sure, the graphics were incredible, but Grandma had difficulty with the timing of the attacks; treating the game as a button masher instead of another Devil May Cry. Add to that a rather over-the-top plotline with extraordinarily dramatic dialogue and some frustrating SixAxis controls for the flight path of projectiles and it was pretty much over for Grandma. She didn't like it. So I bought her Call of Duty 4 based on your constant recommendations online so that she might have a new challenge. I figured if she didn't like that either, no problem; she could get maybe 200 achievement points and I would have something to play on my own profile for those rare days when I don't have anything to do.

But she really got into it!

Grandma's main problem is that she battles her way through a checkpoint so quickly that often she doesn't pick up the right weapons to get through the next one, so she starts the chapter over again a little wiser and with more of a tactical plan. Through a combination of repetition, memorization of AI movement and locations, as well a healthy dose of emotional outbursts, she eventually gets through.

Sometimes I honestly don't know how. She's putting C4 in doorways and bottlenecking enemies into claymores and doing shit I could only get through on Hardened difficulty by running from cover to cover praying I could go prone by the time a bullet flew by. Apparently that doesn't work as well in Veteran mode.

So.. well done, Grandma!

Many, many of you have been e-mailing us and leaving comments on YouTube wondering about Grandma's holiday and what she got. Truth is, not much. We had a pretty modest Christmas this year. When I got her the television I said "well, that's your Christmas present. I'm broke!" I wasn't kidding :) She of course didn't care, she's cool like that. From the rest of the family she got some awesome gift certificates to one of her favorite local cooking-supply stores among other things. She did get a pair of pajamas with the Super Mario Bros. logo printed all over it, which she's probably rocking right now as I type this.

I got her the Close Encounters of the Third Kind Boxed Set on BluRay. She loves that movie. We're starting to rack up a little BluRay collection. Right now she has Weeds: Season 1, 28 Days Later, Kingdom of Heaven, Ratatouille (which is awesome in high definition), and I have the Blade Runner: Final Cut boxed set. Now that Warner Brother's has gone the way of the Blue, there's a lot of movies she has her eyes on.

Let me back up a little.

Grandma had a god-awful, shitty Christmas. I had a awful, no-good shitty New Years. Our holidays were just BAD. Not at all because of the gifts, we loved what we got. We're not the greedy type. Gifts were great.

No, it was something quite different.

Let me tell you a little bit about our holiday season. On Christmas Eve morning Grandma felt an incredible pain in her stomach. It was bad. REALLY bad. She later told me is was worse than childbirth. It had kept her up the night before and now it wasn't letting her do anything. She couldn't bake the cookies she wanted to, she couldn't sit down, she couldn't stand up, she couldn't do shit. If it was gas or something simple, it was the worst fucking gas she ever had in her life. She called her doctor who gave her the usual predictable answer: go to the ER.

So she did.

I drove her to Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna where she's pretty much a regular customer anymore. It just so happened that I was the only photographer on duty that day, but luckily the assignment was scheduled for later that morning in the same city as the hospital. So the plan was, take Grandma to the hospital, get her registered and attended to, go to the courthouse for the assignment, take the photo, go back to the office, upload the photos, go back to the hospital, see what's up with Grandma. It worked pretty well! But the day was filled with omens. That morning the windshield on the Jeep cracked from the intense cold as the defrosters blasted on the other side. The coffee machine at the courthouse spit out grounds into the water. The cell phone battery died. Lots of little things like that. Warnings, maybe.

When I got back to the hospital, Grandma told me she had a fresh round of CAT-scans and MRIs coming up, so we were going to be there for awhile. They gave her some morphine which helped the pain somewhat, and we were pretty sure that when the tests came back clear she would get to go home and that would be the end of it.

They kept her overnight.

Now, this is Grandma we're talking about. One might think of such a situation as an "aw jeez golly mister, but it's CHRISTMAS!" kind of episode, but that's not the case with Grandma. I was in the waiting room playing Lumines II when she finally called me back and told me to go home until they knew what the fuck was going on. She called that night, and she was PISSED.

We made the decision as a family that we wouldn't open the presents until she got home from the hospital, which we figured (and the nurses figured) would be on Christmas Day, sometime in the afternoon. It just wouldn't be cool for her to miss the thing, so we'd wait. Well, that pissed Grandma off too. She more or less said "goddammit, you don't have to wait for me to open your presents, that would make ME feel like shit!"

So we opened a few and brought Grandma up some of hers. They kept her overnight again. After the third day of this, she never really was told what had caused the most sharp pain of her life, only that "well, it's not there anymore, or at least not as much so.... you're cool. Followup with your doctor."

She's fine now, but that was one shitty Christmas. She came home, got back to gaming and we went shopping the next day so she could use her giftcards.

THAT was just a prelude for an even shittier New Years Day.

I can't drink New Years Eve. Not allowed. Personal rule. I'm working that night, driving to all manner of bars and restaurants photographing the celebrations for the big New Years spread. Drinking and driving isn't safe nor is it smart and drinking while WORKING is just downright stupid. Add both of them together and you can see why it's a pretty good rule to have. Being the third year in a row of doing this I don't mind, really.

So imagine the irony when, the next morning as I'm driving back from work to drop off the photos from the previous night, THIS HAPPENS:


Black ice. High winds. Blowing snow. Hell, I wasn't even speeding.

If you look close, you can even make out Grandma's special "OGHC" license plates.

Luckily, I was the only one in the car, I was wearing my seatbelt, and nobody else was in front of me when it flipped. But let me tell you, the people that stopped immediately to pull me out of the flipped vehicle and cleared away the glass and called 911 and got my camera bag well... those people are my fucking heroes. I hadn't expected that. THAT was awesome. The unexpected kindness and urgency I saw made me almost not even care that the car we had loved so much that had been through so much had just been destroyed by a thin patch of frozen water.

To whoever you are, thank you.

The time it took between the car settling in a ditch after the rollover and my ass being in a hospital bed was maybe 8, 9 minutes tops. Mantua-Shalersville police department were quick as a bunny out there, man. Lots of accidents that day and they were on top of them all.

Well, just fucking GUESS which hospital I went to.


The neckbrace and everything turned out to be an unnecessary precaution. I walked out of there maybe an hour or two later (following X-Rays and CAT-scans and all that jazz) without a scratch on me. I had some shattered glass in my hair. I think that was pretty much it.

How lucky was THAT.

The paper called me later that night to see if I had any weather related, car-in-a-ditch type feature art for them during my travels. They still didn't know I had been in an accident.

It just so happened I shot some pictures from the back of the ambulance before we took off to the hospital. (The paramedics must have thought I was goddamn insane.) I told my editors the story and it made front page above the fold the next day. You can read it if you like!

At the end of this messy story is as good of an outcome as I could have hoped for. The Jeep was totaled but insurance paid for everything. Grandma got a much more gas-efficient car with less mileage and less of a chance of rollover to replace the Jeep. I finally killed the fucking car, but maybe it was for the better.

So when I tell you that our holidays were somewhat lacking in that charming fireside spirit, even as bad as they were, slap me upside the head and remind me it honestly could have been worse.

A HELL of a lot worse.

I've thought quite hard on just how worse it could have been.

I could have lost my RT button finger, for instance.

Upcoming posts include a new Call of Duty 4 video, a whole post on Grandma's adventures with Dead Head Fred (by request), and Evan sent Grandma a couple of NEW games that Grandma is excited to try, so lots to come!

Game on!

    First off, One Shot One Kill is a bitch.

    Tim, you've changed your looks quite a bit since that time on MTV where Grandma got the 360 haha. Cool hair.

    And Christ, I honestly did not expect to scroll through this post and see a flipped Jeep. Glad to hear that no injuries came from it.

  • At 8:20 PM, Blogger Gamer Named Tim said…

    First, let me start off by saying that I'm glad both of you are fine.

    Tim, I gotta say... I can't believe it took a fucking hospital gown and neck brace for you to post a pic of what you look like nowadays.

    Glad I finally got to see the guy who writes Granny's blog for the first time since that old ass MTV special.

  • At 12:31 AM, Blogger Crazy Raven Productions said…

    Holy crap!!! Glad you're both ok!

    The cruise sounds magnificent... I may have to lean on the hubby and consider going. :)

    Yay , Thank you for the Dead Head Fred post notification Im so excited about that and the video of Call of Duty 4 . Speaking about Call Of Duty 4 Im not trying veteren mode sounds too "dangerous" for me Grandma may get mad and say bad words at the game cause you may die Too quickly . Also my PSN ( Play Station Network ) name is Me-And-Clank . Nice to see your face after a long time Tim ! Glad you didnt get hurt . Good luck with every-thing also please post quick next time ! Please !

    Woah, long post is long...!

    Awesome, though. Glad to hear how it all went.

    I'm a new reader (just found your blog last week) but I'm already enjoying the adventures of you and Grandma.

    And might I add, your hair is quite pretty. :3

    Here's hoping I make enough after graduating to build up a game collection to rival Grandma's...

  • At 3:21 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    im so glad everyone is in good healthy finally, although the timing always turns out to be a bitch! ive spend thanksgivings and new years in hospital beds so i can sympathize!

    im just getting into Mass Effect (5 or so hours) and its looking as incredible as the reviews said... i am curious to hear grandmas thoughts on the whole thing, especially how she feels it stacks up against some of the other RPGs she has played, although i suppose in truth this isnt a traditional RPG... was she content for a single play through? i can already tell that the first time im going through saying the nice stuff, and when/if i go for a second playthrough im going to be an asshole the entire time!

    As much fun as the video game cruise is going to be, I'm already planning on taking a cruise to Mexico in the summer of 2009 in part of a "deaf cruise" sort of thing with my deaf best friend and a ton of other psycho deaf people. And my dad asked if I wanted to go on a cruise to Mexico with the family in March and I said "hell no" cause family vacations with them suck. As much as I want to go on the video game cruise, I'm pretty screwed in terms of needing an ASL interpreter, I don't wanna be alone in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and not knowing what the hell is going on. So have insane amounts of fun, you guys!

    I had a similar situation of grandma's pain. I was trying to finish a term paper at college some years ago and was really stressed out. So I started to get some really crazy pain (def not as serious as grandma's) in my stomach that I had to go to the ER. They wouldn't let me eat or drink for like 4 hours as they ran tests. I was HUNGRY. And eventually they released me because my pain was going away and they never figured out what it was. I eventually assumed that it was IBS due to stress. And I never got in a similar super stressed situation like that again and no pain like that ever came back.

    Wow Tim, glad everything with you and the jeep is good! Except the whole flipping it and destroying it, but everything else is such a miracle. Besides totally having the insurance cover it and getting a new much better car is good, along with you being allright would be the top choice.

    I was playing some Team Fortress 2 about 2 days ago with a bunch of GamerchiX who weren't as familiar with the game as I was, and we had constant issues with being disconnected. Plus the girls got on Call of Duty 4 multiplayer and all was fine, so it seems that the TF2 servers are a bit borked still. If grandma ever wants to come play with the chiX, we won't be judgey assholes like some xbl guys and just play to get a feel of the game.

    Stay safe, you guys! Stop stressing us out with all those problematic things!

  • At 8:44 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Hey guys, nice to see a new blog post. I just got Call of Duty 4 too, I havn't played it yet though. If I do though I'm definitely trying Veteran mode. FPS games are one of my specialty,

    That cruise by the way sounds awesome. If I wasn't in highschool right now I would definitely check into that cruise.

    I also watch the show Weeds too. I've watched every episode since day one. I'm glad to see you like the show.

    Have a good one.

    That cruise sounds like a dream vacation!! I'd soooooooo love to go, but it's gonna be an awfully busy and expensive year for me with new jobs and moving costs etc. I sure hope they make something similar in the future! And I'd love meeting you, Tim, and Granny there!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your Chiristmas and your car accident, I'm glad you both are alright!

    By the way Tim, you look so different!! I'm so used to seeing you on that G-Hole interview you guys did. As far as I remember that was the only time I ever saw how you look like, so pardon me for being in a bit of a shock right now. lol With that said, you look great!

    I've been offline from Xbox Live now for a little more than a month (busy busy busy) but now I've got some time on my hands, so I'm gonna be back soon!
    Looking forward to the CoD4 vid!!!!

    GAME ON!

    Hey Tim and Grandma !

    I re-discovered this blog last week and spend the following said week reading all the archives so that i wouldn't miss anything. It took me some time, but now i'm here, i've read the last post and i'm even leaving a comment ;)

    I'm usually a big Nintendo fan, but i must admit i was a little disappointed by the Wii. I got Zelda and i thought it wasn't that good. I don't really like tennis, so wii sport isn't that great.
    But, i got Super Mario Galaxy, and it's fucking awesome !
    Have you played it yet Grandma ?

    I've just got a Xbox360 (well, it was right before Christmas) with Guitar Hero III, Halo 3 and a the new Need For Speed. God, that game is so bad. It's really crap, don't buy it. Ugh. But it was free in the bundle, so... :D

    Also, since you both have a DS and since we all know Grandma is a big Zelda fan (which i am too), I was wondering if you had played Zelda: Phantom Hourglass ?
    I bought it at Christmas and I love it. It's genius. I know she loved Windwaker so she MUST love that one.

    Finally, i'll finish by saying I'm really glad you're both okay. Is there any way you too could go to another hospital if unfortunatly Grandma were to experience chest pain and whatnot (which I really, dearly, honestly hope won't happen) ? The hospital you go seems to suck ass.
    Also, Tim, i think you'd look better with short hair, but that's just me, so, what the fuck do I know about hair... ;)

    That was a little bit (too) long message from one of your french fans.

    Game on !! ;)

    Tim, when you do post, your posts are incredibly long. Maybe if you write one post, then break it up into 3 or 4 and post them at different times, we can read the exact same number of words but feel like we are getting more than 1 update a month. Think about it! You have too many loyal readers checking in every day to see if there is a new post! Give us something! We deserve better!!

    Hey Granny and Tim! After seeing the new Vcast from Granny on Youtube (which I think is a GREAT idea!!), I got so excited, I just had to write over here too!

    I'm always excited as a little kid on Christmas whenever I see an update from Granny, and this time was no different. I love the idea of Granny doing her own Vcasts whenever Tim is busy with his job. Maybe even do a Q&A with the fans, as she kind of did in this Vcast. That would be AWESOME!!

    Anyway, just wanted to share my excitement with all of you and especially Tim and Granny. Stay healthy, stay cool, and most importantly...

    GAME ON!

    I just found the blog and am enjoying the heck out of it. I think that it's cool to have someone 40+ who will play - never mind a grandma.

    Keep up the cool posts. FYI . . . Call of Duty is my favorite aside from Halo.

    Glad you're all ok! Well I'm 57 and just got a comment on youtube that it was good to see a "grown woman" playing games. That made me feel soooo cool! I love my games - Tomb Raider, Oblivion, Dark Messiah (though too many spiders Ubisoft lol), Splinter Cell series, Thief, etc etc...So much fun. It cheers me up :-) - Hil, Australia
