I'd Figure I'd follow in Josh foot steps and do a interview with my girlfriend/fiancee (soon to be wife) Karyn about a game that she is currently playing. Mind you now, this was done when she was half asleep on the couch, so I had to make the answers out of mubbles and blurbs.
Me: What type of games do you like?
Karyn: Ummm..I don't know..puzzle games.
Me: What are you playing right now?
Karyn: Majong...on I-pod
Me: Why you playing it on a I-pod?
Karyn: Yeah.........Its portable, small..I'm sleepy..
Me: How does it play on the I-pod?
Karyn: Very limiting, cause you have to use the wheel, theres no up and down. The direction follows through on the wheel.
Me: Is the awkward control just related to Mahjong or all I-pod games?
Karyn: yeah...theres no up and down........
Me: Do your games make you mad, like my games make me and I yell at pixelated characters who won't respond to my controls?
Me: Do you think we are in over our heads with the flesh eating space monkeys?
(no answer, it was at this point I said, we finish the interview in the morning...
Whew..next morning. That was fast)
Me: What do you like about the game, Mahjong?
Karyn: Its simple, mindless and a distracting.
Me: What don't you like about it?
Karyn: Theres no suped up levels like in Peggle. Right now I am doing the Emperors challenge, where I do a bunch of levels that unlock more levels. Theres no special power ups.
Me: So its boring?!
Karyn: Some might care, but I don't. Peggle, now thats a fun game. I've played through that game 8 times now.
Me: Would Mahjong be better if you could shoot or kick the squares..AAAHHYAAAA!!!
Karyn: No....It would be better if there were more challenges.
Thats that. I don't play puzzle games. Karyn is more of a puzzle person. Life is a big enough puzzle for me, I don't need them in my games. Next from the i-pod, the talked about PEGGLE.
And to get people excited about Mahjong, I made a trailer for everyone to enjoy.
Thanks for the interview Karyn!
