I don’t think I would ever be writing these words on my blog, but I completely got sucked into a video game last night.
Have any of you heard of the game Uncharted?
Felix bought Uncharted 2 last year (or two years ago perhaps) and from the first 5 minutes of watching this thing I was sucked in. It’s like part movie-part game. The quality is great and seriously guys… it’s like watching a younger, scrappier Indiana Jones (but not quite as bookish as Dr. Jones).
There’s lots of ancient discovery and puzzles to figure out which I think is super interesting and Felix on the other hand plays it for that reason but also for the action-fighting stuff. During the actual game-play portions, I got in some good quality knitting time.
Felix is now playing Uncharted 3 and it’s bad…. I won’t let him play without me and during the actual game-play parts I can’t even peel my eyes away to knit.
Much to Felix’s chagrin (I’m sure) I’m actively telling him what to do and squealing and giving him a head’s up to where guys are positioned to shoot him. It’s so bad…. Half of the time my palms are all sweaty, I’m that engrossed. I’m doing lots of *sighing* due to the intensity of the game, but I can’t stop watching!
This is really the only game I’ve ever been this sucked into… I really don’t even like games…
Due to my temporary obsession, I got absolutely nothing done this evening! I had planned to work on some sewing projects and also planned to get a few other odds and ends done around the house…but no I sat and watched Uncharted 3 for at least 3 hours. :| I wish I could say I regretted it, but I’m such a sucker for watching this game! There must be something wrong with me. hehe
Tomorrow Felix is going to a PechaKucha event so hopefully I’ll be able to get something done… Wish me luck! heh
