Let the games begin!

May 4, 2009

At the moment I’ve got a hell of a cold, I’m tired like a single-mum with 50 kids and my body feels like some obese fucker have been sitting on me for days. You know, the normal state after trying on a pretty decent weekend of drinking outside, while surpressing the fact that I’m still ill. And what is the perfect cure for situations like this? No, not some exclusive dark chocolate that makes my tongue weep joyful tears. No, not a free all-included week on a five-star spa. Games! The best cure there is, is games. Plenty, plenty of games.

Right now I’m trying to figure what games to indulge in, and I have to say that digging up my old Red Alert III: Command & Conquer is tempting. Thinking about it, I think that C&C was the first computer game I ever fell in love with. There was just something about nuking whole bases down to dust with my little armies of machines and men. Something about hearing Tanya go “How about some action?” and then run. It’s touching. That, and it’s just a hell of a game. I need to find it again.

Another strategy game I feel that I need now, is Warcraft III. My God, I love that game. Everytime I start a fresh game, I find myself wishing Arthas wouldn’t end up as some frozen badass purging villages to east and west. Every time I want to scream to Jaina Proudmoore and make her use some fancy magic to make it all good. And every time I’m thrilled to pulverize poor humans with my armies of undead. Yes, I’m alloved to be this two-faced. That’s why I love the game. I sympathize with every bastard, but won’t even flinch when it comes to scorching their screaming bodies with my badass magic.

In addition to entertaining gameplay, WCIII has such great stories. C&C is amazing when it comes to nuking, killing, chopping, whatever, but I’ve never been that intrigued by comrades and allies and god-knows-what. WCIII however, never ceases to capture my heart. Maybe that’s why I love WoW so much. Maybe Jaina Proudmoore is the reason I’m a pewpew mage in the game. I don’t know. What I do know, is that I really need to do some gaming now. So, how about some action?
