the resigned gamer, everything I hate about the thing I love the most

Musica latino: Unsafe at any speed

sir cholocumber, the resigned gamerIn my eyes Rockstar can do no wrong. When I heard college feministas decrying GTA 3 as G’s up / ho’s down, I’d interject that it was a labor of love. When Hillary claimed Hot Coffee for a straw man and then sent me a fundraising email, I wrote back that she should suck it. When disorganized hippies threatened a Bully boycott I pre-ordered from the Rockstar Warehouse.

I don’t even mind playing Vice City Stories on the PSP. Oh, I’d have preferred to have it on my PS2 but if that’s where Rockstar wants to give me a Mike Oldfield cover then that’s where I’ll take it.
el cholo, the resigned gamer

It’s a little hard to do a gat-blastin drive-by, holding down the L button while pushing the analog stump to one side and pressing O without crashing, but I prefer to run those cholos over anyway.

What I really can’t tolerate though is jacking a car and finding the radio tuned to Espantoso. I’ve flipped more than one hoopdee and gotten myself arrested while reaching for the D-pad to change the station. It’s been worth it every time.

How about a psp diagram, with arrows that show the finger contortions GTA requires?

I always hated that Espantoso radio station, you made the right choice. Don't let the cops book you with that playing in the background, or if you have to, go down hurling epithets like Mel Gibson.
