Hello There Clammers!
Happy Monday my friends! We decided after a long weekend of blam! snatching, nerd zapping & mutant blasting it’d be fun to take a step back from the game and see it from a newbie’s perspective. This newbie is special to Bunny & I…since it’s the one, the only Wookiee!
For those of you that follow us both on this site & our sister site (TSTO Addicts) you’re all aware of just who Wookiee is & his resistance to all things Family Guy…but for those of you that don’t know him, here’s a brief explanation of just who Wookiee is.
What’s up Quahogians!
I’m the Wookiee and you may know me from other sites that revolve around characters slightly more jaundiced than the citizens of Quahog. Alissa and Bunny are two dear friends of mine and for a while they’ve been running this site about all things Family Guy.
You might ask youself, who the heck is this guy and why is he writing a post on Family Guy Addicts? I thought our Wookiee’s name was Cybersilly. Well, he’s not (but helping out the Lady Addicts tremendously… big thanks bud) and it’s mainly because I have an admission. I finally downloaded FGTQFS and figured I had to admit it at least in an e-mail to my two favorite sistas from different mistas.
Picture me finishing another game about tapping and then writing some info about it and getting off the phone with some lady who wishes I was her personal Fuzzball but finding out the hard way it’s just not gonna happen. My daughter aka the little Ewok is watching FG on the tellie and all of a sudden, I find myself needing some mindless humor to get my mind off how crazy some ladies are.
Maybe I’ll try this FG game everybody is talking about? Couldn’t hurt, right? I probably won’t like it but I’ll try anything twice. Alright, wow, had no clue this would become a confessional post but here it goes. I’m not a big FG fan (the horror the horror). While I have seen tons and tons of episodes, they’re just not my bag. I’ll admit that I have laughed my face off at some of the Griffins antics and really like Brian the Dog but beyond that, I can’t quote it or do anything real fans would. I have been offended by a joke and turned off the show and still watched other episodes. All this would seem like a recipe for disaster for liking a game based on them.
And boy was I wrong. I downloaded and the action started right away. For a non-fan, the opening animation was amazing and there really was no better way to draw me in than with a chicken fight. IMHO, they are one of the most EPIC things about FG. The game started and I had 4 characters and 3 buildings before I really knew what was going on. I am currently doing tasks for Jerome at the Drunken Clam. Quagmire is doing something strutty, Bonnie’s chugging wine, Chris is picking his nose and Peter is doing the Bird mainly because that’s one of my favorite things Peter does in FG.
Throughout all of this, I found myself chuckling and really that is my biggest take-away from starting this game. Sure, potty humor isn’t for everyone but I thought everything has been pretty hilarious to this point. I know a bunch of you are probably much further than me in this game and just shaking your head at the newbie but for the foreseeable future I think I just might find myself popping into Quahog for a while. I still have no clue what is going on and it’ll probably take me a little (I’m a techno-tard that way, ask Bunny) but excited to see what happens in 2 hours when my tasks are done.
Uh oh… that sounds like the famous last words of an future Addict.
Anywho, my last confession is that I may have only started this game because of a bug planted when I saw some FGTQFS info online. TinyCo have to be geniuses because the true hook that has made me consider downloading the game has been the current ComicCon Event. Those guys and dolls really know how to set a hook in my brainmeat. Not sure when the goodness for that starts but hoping to enjoy some of it while the event is going on.
Well, sorry to bug ya but figured I’d share my thoughts if only for Alissa and Bunny to laugh at their furry friend who may just have joined the Dark Side. Not sure yet but I do own the Family Guy Star Wars episodes lol. Keep on clamming in the free world and stay classy above all else.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
