I wrote this, too! And TWO POSTS IN ONE DAY! I know. I’m shocked as well. And even though I’m posting about posts I’ve already posted on another site, I’m still counting them.
AND I’m planning on writing a real post after this. Don’t set the post bar very high though, folks. This might be a posting record and stuff but I excel at maintaining low expectations. That way, when I’m super-duper awesome–like today–you’ll be shocked and awed and stuff.
This Kmart Gamer post might interest even some of you who DON’T play video games since this post focuses on a “kid” game your kids are probably going to be bugging you about. Seriously. If your kids haven’t started whining about this yet, just wait. It’s going to happen. Consider this a community service. Or something?
The first–and only–time I played Spyro, I had rented a PSOne from Hastings and Spyro was one of the few titles they had available. By the end of that weekend, I wouldn’t have called myself a die hard fan but I liked the game; I thought it was cute.
Jump forward many, many years to E3 2011.
The last meeting I attended, right before I had to fly home, was the Activision meeting and I was all ready to hear about Modern Warfare 3. When we walked into the room, I was greeted with this:
Um…OK? Totally not what I was expecting.
And by “totally not what I was expecting” I mean I was really thinking, “Can we go ahead and scoot to Starbucks since we have to leave in the middle of this anyway and I want to get to the front of the coffee line and I couldn’t give two crispy sheep about another Spyro game?”
What?! I like coffee!
Read the rest of the awesomeness at Kmart Gamer…or don’t. But that would make me sad. But not so sad that I would cry. Probably. And you could comment over there, too. That would make me smile and they wouldn’t think I’m a total loser. Think of it as a gold star for your soul. Or something.
