Property virgins

2013-6-25bSometimes, a guy just has to draw a mechwarrior… I’ll get into that a bit later.

Yesterday, I was ranting a bit about reality TV.  Today, i’m gonna rant a bit about property virgins.  Is property virgins reality TV?  Ordinary people buying their first house?  I guess?  How is it possible that these people buying a house don’t do ANY research into what they can afford before they start looking for a house on national television?  or are they not allowed to, so that it is more entertaining?  Here is my impression of property virgins:

“I have a hundred thousand dollar budget, and i’d like a below-ground swimming pool.  Where?  Ideally, downtown vancouver….”

“That would cost a trillion dollars.”

“lol really? what can I get for $100,000 then?”


So on to mech warriors.  I was reminiscing about the last time I played mechwarrior online.  It was mechwarrior 4, my second favourite game of all time.  I was in a musty basement apartment in regina saskatchewan, across from the golden mile.  I was playing, and it was an incredibly competitive match.  One guy especially was dominating everyone online, he had a lot of skill, he could manipulate every loop hole in the game.  I remember being so stressed out by this guy, who was ALWAYS online, that I decided to stop playing for a week, just to see if my quality of life improved.

It didn’t, my apartment was still musty and gross.  so, with nothing to lose, I tried to play mechwarrior 4 online again!  Only to find that the servers were shut down, permanently?  SO SAD!  How i’ve longed for the day to play that game again!  …though preferably with people worse then me, but still passionate about the game!  So that I can win, and then talk about it.  hmm.

I hear there is a mechwarrior online that is a fairly recent happening, but now that i’m a mac user, is there really even a point in looking it up?  I won’t be able to play it.  Sad.
