I’m not a gamer. I play Bejeweled Blitz on FB and Ruzzle on my phone and that’s pretty much it. I’ve never had much of an interest in video games unless it’s rockband and I can sing. The Brit isn’t an avid gamer but he does enjoy playing and since I’ve been out of town, he’s playing more than ever. Says he needs to clock as many hours as he can before I get back which is funny because I never discourage him from playing. Half the time, I’m the one suggesting he should play.
A couple of weeks ago he mentioned that he wanted me to play video games with him so of course, I said I’d be willing to try. He’s willing to go watch Mama Mia 2 with me, I’m willing to play video games with him. Newlyweds…Ugh!
The only arcade game I like is Area 51 so I said I wanted a shooting game but not one with a ton of story. I just want to jump into the action, not play D&D. After some research he came back with DON’T STARVE TOGETHER. It’s a survivalist video game!
The plan was to play when I got back to the UK but the Brit’s phone cut out the other day and he said we could play Don’t Starve Together. Since our conversation was cut short, I was all so it. First, I had to get Brayden (my 7 year old nephew) to set up the game, then I ordered the game for Jeff’s playstation, strapped on a headset and we played for a few hours. We were bad, had no idea what we were doing (thank goodness we had Brayden helping us) but had a lot of fun doing it. Then he worked so we haven’t been able to play but to be a better teammate, I downloaded the android version of the game, to practice. He told me about the Android game a day after he ordered it. He wanted to get better to show me up oh and be a better teammate he said after I said that, lol.
Since he had the day off today we hopped online to play. We played for almost 8 hours straight! The sun was coming up in England when we finished. It was crazy! I can totally see how people lose all sense of time while playing games. What I love most about playing the game is that it gives me a feel of sitting in the room with him as if we were at home together, dodging rabid dogs, bats and working hard not to starve together. The hardest part, besides how many times I die (thank goodness he figured out how to revive me) is wearing the headset. My head is huge and I wear glasses so the headset pushing on my ears can be a bit much but don’t worry, I’ve already asked for new headsets when I get home. I’ve become a gamer girl! The things we do for love…
