Out of the Blue

Just call me Dr. Blue (on second thought, don't, it sounds like a porn purveyor), as we have an infirmary going here at the BlueTower. MrsBlue is suffering from some sort of URI that's got her running a low-grade fever and feeling quite poor, while Hudson the wonder dog has developed a limp. It may very well be that I'll have two trips to the doctor today, as MrsBlue may need professional attention, and Hudson definitely does, as this limp has gotten worse, rather than better since she hurt herself (if an Airedale Terrier vocally expresses pain, you have a problem, as this is an incredibly stoical breed)... I'm just hoping we can get appointments with their respective doctors just a few days before Christmas.

Thanks for the tip! Last question, is "Soul Calibur 2" suitable for a soon to be 7 year old? He knows the difference between real and cartoon violence I just want to avoid any super over the top violence which will likely upset the wife who fears I'm corrupting his little mind.


Err...that's a tough one. As said below, there's no blood spurting everywhere, but people do get hit upside the head, kicked, etc...every character has a different weapon.

It's not Mortal Kombat, but it sure isn't Pokemon, either.

Maybe you could rent it from a movie rental place and try it out when he's asleep?

It is a great game, but you bring up an excellent point...


edit: I should also mention I played it on the gamecube, but other than one character, it and the xbox versions are almost identical, graphically (though the xbox may have better sound).

edit again: Oh, and (as stated below) if Burnout3 is as good as 2 (and I suspect it's better), that's a great one also...us gamecube owners got robbed on B3...
