Several acts of bravery

Gamefaqs has me at around half way through Resonance of Fate, which is a little disheartening. Don't get me wrong, it is a good RPG, but with the a compelling story yet there is not much to pull me through from day to day. That, and I have the sneaking suspicion that the game is going to start kicking my ass out of nowhere; it is a Tri-Ace game, so that is not outside the realm of possibility.

I have finally worked up the courage to attempt DJ Hero tonight. After playing with the controller for a while and figuring out what I was doing wrong when I sampled it at Best Buy I have a little more confidence that it will not be impossible, but I am still glad that no one will be watching. Gaming by myself has many advantages, not the least of which being that I do not have to wear pants, but mostly so people cannot see my juvinille tantrums and comically profane rants. There is no good reason to get mad at a game, but I still do. As I child I broke a window once, and to this day I remember the game that caused it:


I also remember losing a password in Metroid to a passing cat bumping the reset button, which was not fun. And don't even get me started about the original Ghosts and Goblins on the NES, or Deadly Towers, or attempting Halo 2's online mode months after the game came out and finding out what tea bagging really was.

Wow, games really do cause violence.
