Gaming with Uncle Lester: Making Us Even Lazier
Uncle Lester may live in a van down by the river, but that doesnt mean he isnt 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 13th edition of Gaming with Uncle Lester! Im your host of todays show, Uncle Lester. H-O-L-Y C-R-A-P this is either the greatest idea in the history of mankind, or the dumbest thing Ive ever tried. I was driving past a military base when my Wi-Fi signal receiver lit up like a Christmas tree. And heres the kicker ITS NOT SECURED! I tried to just leave it alone, but come on its free Wi-Fi! And seriously, whats the worst that could happen?
So today I have finally come to realize just how lazy of a gamer I really am. Im kickin it up front, spun my swivel seat around, and realized my Xbox controller is sitting on top of my console, rather than its normal resting spot (my dashboard). I really wanted to get in some fighting time with Injustice, but I couldnt bring myself to get up from my chair, walk the length of my van, grab the controller, and walk back. Since its not lying in arms reach, Ive sat here for almost three hours now. Doing nothing.
How lazy have we become as gamers? Ill tell ya how lazy. Aside from my painful story of extreme gaming depravation, I had a house when SOE partnered with Pizza Hut, allowing me to order pizza from inside EverQuest II. When it was first announced, I thought it was the dumbest thing Id ever heard.
Then after I was stuck in a raid that went long, I realized it was the greatest accomplishment of the gaming world. I could play my game and order pizza at the same time!!! Oh, what a glorious moment in history that was. Of course, 120 added pounds later, divorced, unemployed, and homeless, Im slowly coming to the conclusion that I may have been incorrect but I doubt it.
Thats it for todays show but tune in tomorrow for more from your sassy sassafras 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]!
