There is a LAN for old men. Or, at least there is when the game is XMP, and the old men are myself, DangerKitty and Junior.
As I’ve mentioned before, I love XMP. The more I think about it, the more I realize that it is the most perfectly balanced multi-player game ever made.
The only problem with it is, it takes a lot to learn, and it is even harder to get anyone to play it.
Unless of course you challenge a whole LAN worth of young bucks to a three on seven game. (They took the bait.)
I’ll spare you the gory details, because you don’t really care anyway, but the fogies won three of the four games.
I think DangerKitty got two or three of his lives back too. That game means that much to him.
Anyway, to the younguns: thanks for playing, it meant a lot. Special thanks to whomever it was who always found a way to be right in front of my raptor when I desperately needed a gutblow.
