Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Amazon's "Gifts for Moms" Sale Offends This Mom

Posted on Wednesday, May 9 @ 11:01:49 PST by Keri_Honea typically has great sales for video games. I particularly love/hate their Buy-2-Get-1-Free sales, because I always leave there with 4-5 games in tow that will just sit in my stack of shame for months at a time. But hey, I got them at a discounted price, right?

So when I saw Amazon's Mother's Day Game Sale announcement on Twitter, I was intrigued. What would be a good game for moms on Mother's Day? I know I have my list, but I had to see what Amazon thinks we want

I am absolutely outraged.

That's what moms want? They want fitness games, kids games, and games to play with the family? Really? Are you trying to say that moms are fat and only have the gaming mental capacity for Skylanders or the Sims?

Let me tell you something, Amazon. If those are the types of games that certain moms will play, THEY DON'T WANT GAMES FOR MOTHER'S DAY. Moms who want games for Mother's Day want hardcore games that they couldn't get for themselves upon release, whether it was for money or time restrictions. 

If you think for one minute that buying games like these are great ways to get your mom/wife to get into gaming, YOU HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT MOTHER'S DAY IS ABOUT.

Mother's Day is about doing something nice for your mom and/or the mom of your children. If that nice thing is getting them a gift, get them something they will want, and not some ploy to get them to turn on a Wii or a Kinect. (Guess what? I don't own either.) In fact, you should take this entire list from Amazon as a list of what not to get the mom in your life for Mother's Day, unless the mom has specifically said, "Hey, I'd like to do Zumba without going to the gym," or "Wow, that Disney Universe game looks really cute and fun! I want to try it."

I can't wait to see what Amazon lists as great game ideas for dads on Father's Day. I bet a large number of those games will be sports games and games currently on my must-play list.

Honey, if you're reading this and you want to buy me a game for Mother's Day, please choose one of the following: Amazon really should have contacted me or a few other gamer moms I know to construct their Mother's Day game sale.
