Confession # 6: Space Invaders

I llllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Space Invaders! Especially Nintendo 64 version. I used to play for hours, trying to beat all the masters at each level. My dad and I used to play every night to see how far we could beat it. I remember the day we finally defeated the final boss, taking at least 10 lives for both of us (that boss is hard!).

Now I can beat the entire game in 40 minutes. If I am stressed and need I break, I pop the cartridge in the 64 and play until I beat it (again, 40 minutes). I love how easy it is for me now and cuss at the game every time the mothership  doesn’t give me what I need, but the same stupid item for the fifth time! Double shot is a necessity in that game and when that stupid mothership doesn’t give it to me, I get pissed.

I have the game on my phone, little magnets on my fridge, and I really want a tattoo of the alien ship someday. One of my writing group members has floppy disks on his classroom wall shaped like a space invaders. I am soooooo stealing that idea when I move to Washington. I had a little hand held game in my purse, but it kept going off randomly in public.

I wish the arcade down the street had it, but then I would spend way too much time there so it is probably a good thing it doesn’t. I am also good at a few racing games, but that is for another post.
