February 24, 2007 – My brother came over this past Saturday and we capped off a great afternoon with a little Rallisport Challenge. I hadn’t played the game in awhile, since I’m stuck at that insurmountable plateau I always seem to find.
That plateau is defined by me not get any closer to beating the game in roughly three years. It inevitably happens in every racing game I play. Burnout 3, Gotham Racing 2, etc., it doesn’t matter – I always get to a point that I can’t get any further. Every once in a while I’ll pick it up and try again, but I can never seem to get beyond my limit, so to speak. I keep buying racing games though – so I must get some fun out of it.
Having him over also made me remember how much fun it is to actually play with someone else. Not having Xbox Live or the Internet (my computer’s so slow I’m not sure if it could handle the double-click of a mouse on a webpage), it’s easy to forget.
I love my single-player world, but it’s nice to have a friend over now and again.
