(Some amusing-?- gamer weirdness)
Okay, so the character that I am pretty much playing the most in CoX these days, on the hero side anyway, is a dude.
See? Very dude like, right down to the muscles and cigar and all. No mistaking that character for a non-dude. He is manly and stuff. Well, once I wrote about weird things that happen with guys and gaming when one plays a male character, hell, same character in that post, just a different outfit. But today, something different and odd that had never happened to me before whilst playing a dude character happened…
My Avatar totally got hit on. And not in a role playing/midst of combat funny snarky silly way. But like a person sending me private game chats and stuff hitting on good old Maverick Six there. It was a little odd. The avatar of the person hitting on me was female, and rather sedate looking, no idea about the player, but I did laugh at the idea of some male gamer pretending to be a woman hitting on a male avatar played by a woman. That is some highly amusing and somewhat twisted stuff right there.
However, I will have you know that Mav was a perfect gentleman, declined the heroines offers and ignored her overt statements and merely kicked villain ass all night long! Truth is, she was rather annoying.
And I can tell there is some odd stuff going on with my costumes in CoX being influenced by the costumes of actual comic book characters I rather like a lot. Hummm. There is a resemblance.
