Fun and Games part 1
Fun and Games part 2
Last week, while I was seeing a client, The Gamer and Child went shopping. On their return The Child excitedly showed me what they’d got. The new Lego game. Excellent I thought. I’d been looking forward to it. Sadly, I didn’t get to play it for a couple of days. The Gamer and Child played it mostly.
But now I’ve got my hands on it and my favourite character to play so far is, of course, Black Widow.
Catch you later.
The Dark Side
On the weekend, I started to seriously question my stance in regards to gaming. I enjoy the Lego games, partially because they have funny little quirks in the background (not to mention Captain Jack’s swagger) but also because The Child can join in on them and view them. They’re also fairly easy to play so for a gamer novice, it’s a bonus.
So The Gamer showed me a YouTube vid that introduced the new Lego game and the characters. All was fine, except they broke something in the game and it was bouncing to be rebuilt. They didn’t rebuild it. Something in my brain snapped and I was yelling at the screen for them to get on with the game.
Shortly after I put myself in time out.

So The Gamer spent the best part of the Melbourne Cup holiday cleaning and rearranging the lounge in preparation for the new Xbox’s arrival. This involved pulling out the entertainment unit, unplugging everything and even mopping.
Part of me wants to encourage this behaviour. The other part recognises the price. Hmm.
