Shoot 'em up

on Posted by Rajesh J Advani
What is it about us guys and these video games where you pick up a variety of guns and just go knocking peoples' heads off?

I bought myself Max Payne 2 a few weeks ago. I then had to buy myself a USB mouse too, since playing a shoot'em-up on a laptop's thouchpad is not very easy.

For a week after that, the only thing on my mind - and my brother's - was to play more and get to the next level. The beauty of the game is that it's got a story. I haven't touched the game in two weeks though. Don't have a stable spot to keep my mouse pad (no table in my bachelor pad), and without complete control over your mouse, you can't play a shoot'em-up.

I'm thinking of buying myself a USB joystick. Playing with that would definitely be fun...
