Come on baby make it hurt so good…

So what do you do when doing what you love hurts you? I made a video to show some of the things you might find difficult to do if that happened. I wanted to have a little fun with my war wound.

But hey, there are always games like EndWar, which I find fascinating because of the really well-done voice command system. It isn’t exactly “playing at the speed of thought” or whatever marketing bullshit they came up with, but it is absolutely innovative when it comes to command interface.

Maybe I should go back to being a commander in BF2…

Naw…the locos there never listen to commands. In EndWar they listen.. they just suck at what they do. In BF2 I’m more likely to be blown 20 feet in the air by a “friendly” pack of C4 than to have my orders followed.

So what do you gamers do when life, or injury, makes you take a break from your gaming habit?

Who’s up for a game of “Remote Masseuse?” *wink*

UPDATE: Guys, you know the “masturbation” thing was a joke.. right? 😉

    Hope you feel better soon.

    May be time to learn to be left handed and stick to slower paced strategy games for now. Civ 4 can comfortably be done with one hand I think…

    I’m up for remote masseuse! pick me, pick me! *raises hand*.
    I have this bad habit of sometimes leaving my contact lenses on for long periods of time and what happens is one of my eyes may begin to feel irritated (feels like a knife going through it) when I look at anything bright. My only remedy is to turn my room completely dark and then go to sleep so the eye can rest.
    It is at that time, when it’s a real bummer because it means I can’t browse the net, watch movies,
    or play any video games.

    I usually just try to play anyway. Luckily I’ve never had any injuries that would prevent me from playing games (well except a finger sprain when a football hit my fingers). But even then it was possible to play some games (not today’s games since they all seem to require shoulder buttons).

    Puzzle games are good if your interested in that.

    wow, that’s a wierd entry to discover your blog on… anyways…

    i ordered a gigantic mousemat recently and it came with a sweatband. i wondered why until i put it on… the thing works like one of those pads you get on special needs mousemats. it’s all cushioned n nice n stuff. i’d recommend it, might reduce repetitive strain injury when gaming, plus it keeps your wrist nice and snugly. of course, that won’t help with… ahem… other repetitive activities…

    I hope the joke was about the cause of your injury, and not kidding that you masturbate. With all the negative messages we get about masturbation, we need some good role models to tell us that it’s cool to masturbate.
