So if you haven’t been following the latest Child’s Play crazes, I have officially petitioned Zeke from the Iron Man Mode webpage to help his cause of playing ANCIENT and/or IMPOSSIBLE games for charity. That’s right – they play video games for charity in Iron Man Mode.
What is Iron Man Mode, you may ask? Are you a n00b? I’ll answer (because I love answering questions with even MORE questions), Maybe from the newest generation, since Iron Man Mode is like old skool gaming. If you’ve ever played a game from the 80’s or early 90s, Iron Man Mode was the ONLY way you could play some games. Basically, it goes like this:
Me – Sign me up, game!
Game – Okie dokie. Here’s your sword, here’s how you move/jump, and here’s your ONE life.
Me – Great, I’ll just … wait, did you just say one li –
Game – OH HAY THERE’S A MONSTER SPIDER JUST EATED UR HED GAME OVER BITCH!
Me – Well … shit.
You get one life to play, and that’s it. If you die, game over. So in the spirit of my agonizing, awkward High School youth, I shall play a game and if I die, blog over, man! One life, one blog. If you eat it, you stop writing.
OH SNAP I CAN SO TOTALLY DO THAT!!!
So I took Zeke’s thrown gauntlet and wrote him an email. And got no response. But I didn’t give up and kept cruising his page until I saw his news page and … I got a mention! My blog was thusly linked! Huzzah and forsooth! And guess what? Like magic*, my numbers are now up by 7 hits a day! Woo!
SEVEN MORE PEOPLE TO ADD TO THE GLORIOUS SPAM I GET IN THE COMMENTS SECTION EVERY OTHER DAY! I AM BLESSED.
But seriously, I’m going to play a painfully crappy and difficult game for charity. My favorite charity, in fact. Charity chariting charity chariting charities trolls etc.
Let me hint to you the game I have chosen for this glorious explosion into fame and charity – it begins with Virtual and ends with Villagers. And maybe a 4 is in there somewhere.
