eyes are overrated

ok, continuing along the “let’s play videogames” mantra of this past weekend, I just finished a 90-minute Amplitude (still the best $20 you’ll spend on a PS2 game – trust me) session. My eyeballs feel something like glass rubbed with sandpaper and then blow-dried.

The game forces you to pay attention, which means you don’t blink. This is not a recommended course of action. Still, it was fun, but I am done with computers and videogames for the evening.

  1. I still show frequency off to friends of mine — I wasn’t even aware of Amplitude! (I probably assumed it was a snowboarding game). A friend of my girlfriend’s who is a DJ was really interested in the remix mode, but it was hard to explain in my living room surrounded by a bunch of people drinking, oh and in french. (I have to admit I haven’t picked up music-tech vocab yet).

    Of course I also showed the Donkey Konga, which is pretty silly.

  2. Er, that was me, and “showed THEM Donkey Konga”. I don’t just show my Konga to the Donkey or just anyone, y’know what I mean?

  3. Tragically, scarily, I know exactly what you mean, although I am not convinced you wouldn’t show just anyone your Konga.
