Karissa beat a video game!

I never thought I'd live to actually ever beat a video game... especially after New Media Projects last semester...

But I did!

Mike told me about this game called Zoo Keeper a long time ago (before I got to play it on the Nintendo DS), and I play it online when I need a break from reading. It's fast-paced, doesn't take much to play (I don't recommend using the finger pad on a laptop, though--definitely get a mouse for this), and is absolutely adorable...

My auspicious occasion occurred on Friday night. I just sat down and played the game on the DS--and I just didn't stop playing. I played all 20 rounds, going faster and faster, matching up those adorable square-shaped animals until the credits started playing.

I had no idea what was going on.

I ran into the other room because I thought I did something wrong. Lo and behold, I had won the game! Top high-score! And I had witnesses!

I really like puzzle and matching games. Maybe they're for little kids and maybe they're too easy for some folks, but I like them and I actually beat one for the very first time. Maybe not the last time, though... :)

This afternoon, with the help of my PDA, I found the Amulet of Yendor and brought it back to the surface while playing iRogue (a PalmOS port of Rogue -- circa 1980).

The ending was a little anti-climactic, but I enjoyed it.
