Uncle Lester may live in a van down by the river, but that doesnÂt mean he isnÂt a gamer at heart. Always on the lookout for an unsecured Wi-Fi connection to use before being runoff, his quest for gamer glory continues!
Hello and welcome to the 14th edition of Gaming with Uncle Lester! IÂm your host of todayÂs show, Uncle Lester. UhhÂ so tapping into an unsecure Wi-Fi connection just outside a military base may not have been a good ideaÂ it was a GREAT idea! Oh my godÂ nobody comes out this way! ThereÂs nothing as far as I can see but dirt and mountains. The only odd thing is all these massive craters I see scattered around me. Maybe this is where they have bad soldiers come out and dig huge holes? I couldnÂt tell ya. What I can tell ya though is that this place is awesome! I think I found my new home.
Speaking of homes, when I actually had one, there was nothing I liked to do more than hop online, get good and drunk, and then find some pick-up group (PUG) to play with. I would always do my very best to appear sober, coherent, and friendlyÂ right up until we were almost done with the dungeon. Then IÂd do my best Leroy Jenkins impression and run like a madman! ÂUNNNNCLLLLLLE LESSSSSSTERRRRRRRRRR!Â and I was off like a bolt of lightning.
IÂve found itÂs moments like these in online gaming that bring the best out of people. At least in terms of their creativity with the multiple ways they scream at you to go lay down in the road and count mufflers, go die in a fire, or the perfectly acceptable stand by, FU. When you bring a person to the brink of a complete meltdown of their brainÂs synaptic nerves, the phrases that come flowing out can peel the paint off the side of the most battle-hardened warship.
It isnÂt the nicest thing in the world to do, but if youÂre not above being a complete asshole for at least one night, you should give it a try. Especially if youÂve had a trying day at work and are looking or a way to blow off some steam. If you do be sure to get good and drunk first to mitigate any feelings of crushing guilt you may feel afterwards when you realize that you ruined the night of four other gamers that did absolutely nothing to deserve it.
ThatÂs it for todayÂs show but tune in tomorrow for more from your bodacious brother of the gaming world, Uncle Lester! Be sure to follow me on Twitter at @UncleLesterWIFI too or send me an email with your gamer topic at [email protected]!
