I played chess yesterday against this dude, and my friend's dad was watching. He kept being like "why aren't you taking his pieces? Man you guys suck, you could easily just take all these pieces" and stuff like that. I ended up losing the game, but I played my friend's dad afterwards because he was talking so much shit and I destroyed him twice. I didn't learn anything about chess from it, but it felt pretty good.
Besides, it was one of the first times I have played a board game of that magnitude that didn't involve extreme anger/irrational hatred against the other players. I mean, we all sat there and laughed when suddenly an invasion went totally shit when the luck ran out. Like when the allies tried for an early D-day, and all their bombardment missed. Good times.
It's been a long time since I last played any chess, actually.
What article about consoles dying? Some article that says they'll lose to mobile gaming? Because while statistics seemed to point towards that, there is actually a decline right now in mobile and app gaming. Meaning the staticians who predicted consoles to go obsolete in favour of appgaming are most likely wrong.
I honestly would rather play on a real console than a phone/iPad, and Im sure there are lots of others that feel the same. Consoles arent going anywhere anytime soon, I wouldnt worry about it.
Ehhh, touchscreen. Not a big fan.
Also, why does it have to be so far to Hong Kong's airport? I mean, come on!
