Electronic desires

I kinda miss playing WoW. It's this sneaky addiction that comes back after six months, every time. A sudden urge to let a pile of pixels hit another pile of pixels in predictable ways for a few hours. Strange. I also miss LoL, mostly because I felt I was getting somewhat good at it and I don't really have a substitute for that kind of gratification. Then I miss, lo and behold, my Razer keyboard. Old, fat HP and Logitech ones, and tiny laptop ones, can only satisfy my gamer fingertips for so long. Finally and conclusively, I miss my Playstation 3. For a myriad of reasons, but once again mostly for the feel of a Playstation controller in my hands, the weight, the perfect fit. The closest I get here is an XBox360, and as everyone knows, that's like replacing your girlfriend with a blow-up doll...

I could make variations of that joke all day. "So that's why all the jocks have one." "For those who are too cheap to get the real thing." "I guess that's fine if all you want is to pump and cross the finish line." "Be sure the batteries will run out just when you're getting comfortable."
Join the fray, it's make-fun-of-xbox-day!

I have no inclination to mock one specific console, because I find them all waaaaaaay inferior to a PC. And I've been trying to download WoW for a week now, but the connection here is so crappy that it takes about 8 hours to get anywhere at all, and then I have to turn the stupid installation off in order to use the internet for anything else.

I don't consider console and PC to be playing in the same league. It would be like comparing, I dunno, chess to figure-skating.

Luckily I already have wow. I'm considering paying for like a single month or something. I can touchpad-play even, as long as I don't PvP.

Hehe, well. Once I get back from the forest I will download it fast enough and fire it up.
