The Mentality of a Gamer

It's been a while since I posted.  Mato ended up not playing much Halo after a while due to the fact she didn't feel good enough for the regular maps and the same 3 maps for big team kept coming up so she got tired of those.  We played through some BioShock and my son and I started playing WoW again, she played a little bit but her computer really isn't good enough. I plan on getting her something nicer as soon as I can.  For now she's mostly watching Netflix shows while I work.

Forming a Halo Player... 11: Mato's 9 and 1

Here's Mato's 9 and 1 as promised:

Not too bad under the circumstances.  We haven't had a chance to play much but we played last night, she had a .64 for the day which is not too shabby!  We have a super busy week so we more than likely won't play much this week but we'll get back on it next week. I also have my game on Exile I mentioned I'll upload asap.

Forming a Halo Player... 10: First Positive Day!

I haven't really had much to report as we've been playing together, which means I'm not watching her, and we've had a few not-so-fun nights of game play.  The two nights before last night she went .31 and .35, we just weren't having good nights.  But as I always do I went and looked at her stats this morning after a pretty good night of gaming last night, and she has a 1.16 for her daily k/d yesterday!  Here were the games:

Why you don't buy from Garage Sales - Or at least come prepared.

So Mato's been wanting to go to traders village in DFW for a bit now, it's just a fairly large flea market.  Lately on Reddit I've been seeing a lot of "look what I found at a garage sale!" or "found this at my flea market!" so I was like ok let's go. So I grabbed some money in hopes I'd find some pre-64 bit games while I was there.  The first thing I found (yes I'm aware these aren't pre-64 bit games) was an original XBox (1) they would have sold me for $40.  I don't have one so I considered buying it, but I just didn't know if it would work or not and didn't want to waste my money.

Forming a Halo Player... 9: Mission 2 and 3 Complete!!!

So Mato told me that she was pretty sure she met Mission 2 and 3 last night while we were playing. I looked at Waypoint this morning and it did not look like it matched up. But when we reviewed the games just now - SHE DID!  Here are the games:

So I sat down with her last night to watch her play.

Forming a Halo Player... 7

Well the good news is Mato is still playing every night. She even plays while I'm at work still and most of the time she doesn't even tell me, so I know she's enjoying it.

Forming a Halo Player - Part 6, Getting down to Business.

This should be the last time I post in a while, promise. :)  Unless you are enjoying reading these daily, let me know if so.

I'm not stopping daily intentionally (well, it's 2 birds with one stone) but I've come up with what I feel is a good plan for Mato and posting every day would more or less be me just giving general updates. So maybe I'll wait until Sunday evenings.  I'll do Sunday Evenings or when she accomplishes a Goal, whichever comes first.

Forming a Halo Player - Part 5

Game mode worked on the 60" so we moved it in the bedroom Friday night.

Forming a Halo Player - Part 4

I wasn't home last night so Mato played alone. She sent me a screen shot of her going 4 and 4, It's a 1.0, although it's low she was at least focusing on staying alive which is good in Slayer.  This morning I checked her stats to see how well she had done and she went down to a .36 k/d (.39).  She also went down to a .44 w/l (.45).    So I called her and I asked her simply "Did you have more fun last night than you normally do?".
