The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

I love u mum!
Posted on Sunday, March 2 2008 @ 23:32:48 Eastern

My mum was the 1st person to introduce the world of console gaming to me. She bought for my birthday a Genesis way back in 1989 with Sonic and Altered Beast. Mind you $200 then was a princely sum to pay and the household was set a few weeks back. The funny thing was I never asked or whined for it. In fact, I was saving $0.50 a day just so I could buy it myself (even though slow, I'd make that amount sooner or later). Just goes to show how much mum loves me. I still remember the day when she helped me set everything up and even taught me the mechanics of the aforementioned games. You're too sweet mum! We'd adventure together through the jungles of Quackshot and slice each other (with much gore) in Mortal Kombat. Baddies stood no chance when she was Blaze and me, Axel, romped Streets of Rage where she oft called the police cars haha!

Fast forward to present time, I've bought game systems on my own (with my own money of course) after Genesis. I miss those days when she'd be with me at the local gamestore pestering the sales assistant about the games we're buying and whether we could reserve 1 before we could afford it. I miss those days when she would be beside me telling me to get that power-up, kill that bald-guy, watch out for that spikes. I miss my 1st gaming buddy. I miss my mum. Mum, Dynasty Warriors 6 needs another player. Up for it?
