So the reason why I haven't written a lot about video games recently is because K's video game spending has gone waaay down (a whole other topic) and NECA has been releasing new HeroClix sets at a higher frequency. He spent this past weekend unpacking his latest set, pausing every once in a while to show me a particularly well-done sculpt. And I hate to admit this, but I have absolutely no interest.
It's so bizarre. While I love spending the evening watching him play video games, I have all the classic "annoyed gamer's wife" reactions when it comes to HeroClix:
- They cost a lot of money and time (for sorting and selling).
- I have no interest in comic book characters.
- They take up a significant amount of space in the house.
- The actual game is not fun for me to play or watch. (I've tried.)
Anyway, for those of you out that who can't stand their significant other's video gaming habit, I can commiserate in a way. Luckily, K has a few friends who like to play, so he can have his weekly man cave time talking shop with other like-minded individuals. And since he puts up with me babbling about random anime series or celebrity news, I can certainly listen to him excitedly gush about the latest cool character he has uncovered. ^_~
Do you support your significant other's gaming habits or not?
