While COVID has been wrecking havoc across the nation I’ve largely been staying indoors and working on side projects and figuring out how to keep myself busy so I don’t go insane. While I have a new computer to help me churn my work out faster, I still have a hard time figuring out which tasks I want to complete first.
So as of late I’ve been throwing stuff around to see what sticks. And while I’ve been downloading programs and customizing my interfaces I uncovered my old Anchor.fm account where I wholly intended to have an entire podcast channel dedicated to older women (25+ yrs) who want to get into gaming and their entire experiences learning the ropes. You can listen to me talking by myself at the end of this post.
Do I plan on making an entire series out of this? I don’t know. When I started it I had a passion for games and playing them no matter what age I am. I wanted to encourage women of all ages to play games and enjoy them no matter how bad they are. The whole point is to have fun, which is why I called it Pretty Girl Scrub Squad.
The term “Scrub” is a term used for someone who isn’t good at video games. I don’t consider myself to be anywhere near good at them and I suck at games that aren’t hack n slash. FPS (first person shooters) are an absolute nightmare for me and I’m BAD at aiming.
But somehow, I still manage to have fun even when I suck. The last time I rage quit a game was when I was fighting Sephiroth in Kingdom Hearts 2. I have to say I tried 33 times before I finally beat him and I called my friend Keri screaming about my victory. That was EXTREMELY satisfying! And now with my new computer, I can sink to new lows and suck even more. I hear that playing League of Legends sucks your soul and crushes it under the weight of your ineptitude, so I think I’ll start there. Or…I can just play the Sims and make people burn to death as I have a terrible god complex that must be sated.
