Akron, OH - Much like life, Rich Stiles of Ft. Wayne MI learned
that "Normal" is too difficult for him on his favorite
game Satana 2.
was so much harder that I kept dying on the 'Choose your character'
screen. I'd type in my name, Rich, and my character would die. The
only way I could get past that screen was to play a female character
with a metal bra," explained Stiles.
As in real life, Rich learned that breasts could get you out of
"I think the same people who designed this game also designed
girls," continued Stiles. "I mean the easy ones are too
easy, while the normal ones are near impossible to conquer."
Other gamers agree with Stiles. Sarah White from Columbus, Ohio
said, "The Orcs go from sword fodder to Uruk-hai on steroids.
I don't know how they expect anyone to finish it on that level. I
mean I spent a whole 25 minutes on it then I just downloaded some
cheat codes and advanced to the end game. I don't even know why they
have a "difficult" setting. No one could ever play at that
Programmers admit that the Normal level can only be mastered if
a person plays the game 24/7 until the next version comes out, or
if the player has some freakish video game skills like those guys
in the Dance Dance Revolution videos.
"Most people don't have that kind of time, so we don't even
put in a "difficult" level, just the menu selection. If
someone does choose it by accident we just go to a default blue screen," laughed
head programmer of MiniSky Games Trish Erskin.
Rich's mother, Clara Stiles, agreed, "Rich really has some
problems with normal."
