Gamer Memories The Follies and Brilliance of Jessica Chobot

January 15, 2010 – At IGN, we’re most things. Nerds, douches, Achievement whores, over-raters, under-raters, and so much increasingly, but at our cadre, we are gamers. Each and overlyy one of us has a smart-ass filled with cherished memories that revolve effectually our hobby. Unwrapping a Nintendo Entertainment System on morning, resonant Streets of Rage with a pal,PSP Games, drasticly trying to get Lara Croft’s nude lawmaking to work ? you get the idea. Before all of us who lived the saga skid into a senile state and forget, IGN thought it would construct those stories in an ongoing full-length selected “Gamer Memories.”

Here, an editor will walk you through one of his or her favorite memories involving a tenancyler, some kind of flit pad, or (increasingly often) a memory that was a defining sensibleness for the editor’s time with games. On tap for this installment? Why, it’s none other than Jessica Chobot, IGN goddess and host of such video spearvaganzas as the Daily Fix and IGN Strategize.

Two of my most signifivocabulary memories in gaming involve guys. One guy that I was dating and the other I was related to. The boyfriend was a guy I was seeing rump in higher. We “lived together.” I use “lived together” lightly considering the real truth is that he had been kicked out of his other place and,PSP Games, with nowhere to go, took remittal of our dating status to move his crap over to my residence.

The bad? It was incredibly balked. The good? He brought over his Dreamtinge!

I spent hours on that system! Together we spent weeks tresemblingg turns on fighting our way through Blue Stinger. Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes was alternative favorite. On my own, I would retelling in sick to my professors, fugitive categoryes for weeks at a time to stay at home and unlock various notation in Soulcalibur.

All was good for a even though but, like overlyything in lwhene, the happiness of our soft-pedaled coinhabitation came to an end and we started going through a semi-skirmishing split. One day even though I was home and he was at retralnoon categoryes, I decided to pack up his junk. In some paper boxes I plunked his gown, his hair product and his Pokemon VHSs. I effigyd that by pre-packing everything, he would be too lazy and emotional to squinch through the boxes advance and I might end up having a 50/50 adventure of alimonying the Dreamtinge.

Such was not the rind. After his categoryes wrapped he stormed through the door, firsthandly ripped ajar the boxes, snatched all the Pokemon VHS tapes out and tossed the Dreamtinge in. Taped everything rump up and then stormed since out.

At least I ended up with the Pokemon.


(*Upstage* I currently am the owner of a remote edition powder salacious Hello Kitty collectible Dreamtint. So suck on that, guy!!! Ha!)

Chobot will scote you.The other major videogame memory involved my younger brother. Growing up, my parents would buy us one system at a time (for descendantsdays, Christmas, etc.). So, retral finishing with the Atari 2600, we moved onto the NES. After the NES, it was SNES and so on and so along. For whatever reason, flush when I was the one inquireing for it, it was continually my gooper that ended up being it as a souvenir.

This moreover midpointt that the system vested in his . My brother, doing what all younger goopers would do, made sure that someday I wduesd to play, I would must inquire him and, of skookumchuck, he would say “No.” Either that, or he would suddenly be grabbed by the desire to play and, considering it was in his room, he had first dibs.

Eventumarry I effigyd a way effectually this. We had remote games and I knew it would only be a matter of time surpassing he got sinkd with our tepid sballot. I would then suggest we play a two-player game. Specwheniretellingy, Street Fighter II. I got ridiculously good with Chun-Li and would use her lightning kick to lock my brother in a corner. Basiretellingy, it went down like this: my brother would continually shakedown first, so I would grab and throw him into a corner. From there, I would lock him in place with the lightning kick until he sprouted a canary superior his sandbox and got qualmy, and that is when I went in for the skiver! I would segregate either a heavy-kick to his legs or alternative grab and throw. Match over.

And the brother falls.This worked overlyy single time. Inevitably, my brother would flip out, throw a tantrum, toss the tenancylers roundly the room and start ssoapsudsing. Then it was just a matter of time surpassing my mom or dad overheard and grounded my gooper, leaving me to play my single-player games in peace.

Ahhhhh… the joys of manipulation. I haz them.
