Gaming With Uncle Lester

Uncle Lester may live in a van down by the river, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t 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 26th edition of Gaming with Uncle Lester! I’m your host of today’s show, Uncle Lester. This whole pimp trying to kill me thing is really freaking me out. I can’t pop my head above my dashboard without thinking I’m going to get capped. I don’t think I can take it much longer.

This definitely reinforces what I’ve said for many a year. Things would be a lot easier if life were just like The Sims. If it were, then I could find that pimp in my neighborhood and build him a house… of death! Or at least a lot of discomfort. Don’t look at me like that. I know damned well each and every one of you have had someone in your lives that you wish you could teach a lesson to.

Imagine if you were able to toss your boss into a house and then remove the toilet. You’d get to watch them run around, getting upset, and eventually peeing themselves. After that comes the crying which would normally be annoying but you don’t like the person anyway so it’s all good.

You’d have to be careful though. When The Sims first released I built a house, got a wife, got a job, and I was off. No one told me you should have your spouse take cooking lessons. Or that you needed to put a fire extinguisher in the house. Or that the kitchen should have a fire extinguisher.

Well, once my Sims wife died in a cooking accident gone horribly wrong, life got even worse. In the first Sims you couldn’t move the urn where someone died. Since she died in the kitchen, my manly man of a widow broke down and cried every time he came into the room. It was embarrassing. Alright. Fine. Maybe life wouldn’t be easier, but at least I wouldn’t have to hide from a damn pimp!

That’s it for today’s show but tune in tomorrow for more from your wandering Wolverbat 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 UncleLesterWIFI@gmail.com!

You didn't mention the best thing you can do: build a pool and then remove the ladder/stairs! Or that godawful clown painting.

I actually played The Sims 3 for about an hour last night. Finished moving in my newly-made family, had the young newlywed husband look through a telescope, and BAM...he was hit by a meteor. Now, I could've moved him out of the way, but...I sorta wanted to witness his demise.
