You Know You’ve been playing too much City of Heroes when…

You Know You’ve been playing too much City of Heroes when you have the following conversation with your wife in the middle of the night:

Hooloovoo: (shaking Wife awake) Go turn off the shower.

Wife: (groggy) Huh? The shower’s not on.

H: No, the shower outside.

W: (confused) What?

H: We have to turn the shower off so they’ll give us a new mission.

W: (realizing H is actually sound asleep) What kind of mission?

H: I don’t know, but it’s important that we turn the shower off first.

W: Okay. (rolls over and tries to go back to sleep.)

I have no recollection of the previous alleged conversation. Jenny told me about it this morning. I have been known to sleep-talk, but this is much more lucid and cohearant than my normal mumbling. Maybe I should skip CoH tonight and work on my website or something instead.

  1. This is something that your wife and mine will certainly be able to commiserate over. Lexi let’s me know every, now and then, when I have said something rediculous in my sleep. Then she generally shares with others.

    Anyhow, what do you think of the game? Tycho compares it to Diablo with really in depth character creation. What keeps you playing? Is chutta still involved?

  2. LOL. πŸ™‚ I like the fact that she asked what kind of mission anyway – because if it was a good one, maybe she would have sent you outside to do it.

    imagines Hool wandering around on the street in the middle of the night making super hero noises.

  3. Gah Lupus, you just made me spit cracker cumbs crumbs into my keyboard. πŸ˜€

  4. simpsone, I am enjoying it so far. I’m not sure what it is exactly that I like, I haven’t really experienced that much of the game yet. – The important thing is that I’m having fun. Chutta is still involved, as are several other people from work, including dogboy. (Who I’m supposed be helping level right now — so I’m going to finish this comment, then correct the typo I just saw in above comment, then I’m logging in.

  5. Bah… you haven’t played a game enough until you are sleep talking. FanBoy once was treated to me arguing WHILE ASLEEP about how to do a bear rush from WarIII.
