I don't need 'help', just a lot of practice. :-) I borrowed a friend's computer for the long Easter weekend to try out Moviestorm, and I'm excited as a squirrel in a nut processing factory. My only disappointment is not knowing about Moviestorm a long time ago.
Beyond occasional rounds of Monopoly and Go Fish, I have absolutely zero gaming experience. I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan; someone showed me the fancy Ghostbusters game two or three years ago. Despite my enthusiasm, I could not make the Ghostbusters walk or look around or talk or anything.
I thought of that a lot this weekend.... I had to laugh out loud at my pathetic efforts to navigate the Moviestorm set. I've never had a mouse with a wheel on it -- looks like I'll have to invest in one! ;-) The trackpad has always worked great for me in other (and simpler) software. At one point in my explorations and trials and experiments this weekend, I ended up close to the Background Mountains and had to make a long, quite slow, Dave-Bowman-in-2001 type of progressive walk back towards the set -- and I couldn't for the life of my figure out how to make it go any faster. But it wasn't terribly frustrating... overall l enjoyed my naive ignorance and sad sack attempts in a new arena more than I believe I ever have before, on or off of a computer. It's rare I laugh, let alone out loud, at repeatedly screwing up over and over. I enjoy Moviestorm though; laughing at my idiocy is, I admit, rare in my life, and I can only attribute it to liking the software quite a great deal.
I have a lot of practice to build up, and finessing skills to gain. Not being a gamer or major techie, I admit I am fairly behind, however I look forward to all the learning and practice to put in. I really look forward to grabbing a new computer and a full Moviestorm download and acquiring more knowledge and skills.
Onwards and upwards!
