Last night, Louie FINALLY threw down the gauntlet and offered to play few games with me. Which was complete shock, as that was one of the reasons I started blogging. It REALLY caught me off guard, as I’m used to being silly, cracking jokes at the dialogue in whatever I’m playing. Clearly, there I wasn’t gonna say no!
Sadly, we only had like an hour at most before I had to get ready for work. The Xbox 360 was a no go, as my 2nd controller needed to have it’s batteries recharged. (Note to self, do that.) So the PS3 was my only option. (My PS4 only has one controller. Note to self, get a second one.)
With what little time we had, I skimmed through my digital library in hopes of finding a game she’d like. First up was Jet Set Radio (one player), which she just thought it was weird, calling them creepy; which I had to laugh at. We played with three retries, in order to keep us engaged. Louie complained about the movement and how it was kinda difficult to handle. Obviously, I told her with every time she said “I can’t do this!” to just remember that games are all about trial/error, learning and improving. (I gave her a lot of credit, as she hasn’t played a video game since, Guitar Hero.) When it was my turn, I kinda agreed with her about the wonky controls. Playing it seems like your character has a Low-G effect. Considering that the game was eating up our time, we tried something else.
Little Big Planet 2 seemed like a good idea, to our luck, I hadn’t played it in a while and had 2 hours in updates pending. Our last game for the night was Virtua Fighter 5, which was fun to play a local fighter with someone. (Most of the time, I’m going online or playing solo.)
I remember her complaining about why all of the women were portrayed as puny and always pretty. (Clearly, she hasn’t played as Vanessa!)
We ended up tied with a few wins between each other and then we called it quits for the night. I liked this…ya know, the whole sharing activities, I wanna do more! I’ll have to go through my library and see what we can do as 2-player and what has to be one player experiences.
Hell, eventually I ought to let play a few titles and have me watch her play. She always liked to watch me play Uncharted, maybe I’ll get her into that or the new Tomb Raider.
