Rock Band rekindles relationship

The tale of a spouse who pays more attention to a hobby than a significant other is an old one. Just what that hobby is has changed over the years. Be it watching sports, spending too much time at the office, or playing too many video games, it's a tale as old as time. It's amazing then, that in Rachel Shukert's case, video games actually saved
a marriage. The particular game in question is Rock Band
, which pulled her husband away from solitary first person shooters and brought the two together on the rise to virtual stardom. It's really a touching story with a sound moral: all marital problems can be solved with Rock Band
. Just try not to fight over who gets to play which instrument.

Yes, it's so touching how she moronically insults gamers and men in general throughout the entire piece. So to her, congratulations on delaying your inevitable divorce 12 months. Your husband will at some point return to playing more of the video games video that you deem too childish, and you will be return to being maladjusted and insufferable.

I agree with Andrew, she sounds like a pain in the ass to live with, her husband may be better off elsewhere!

***...suggests draping one's naked breasts somewhere impossible to miss -- like the coffee table, or on his head...
...Ben is sitting at makes this impossible, but I sit beside him on the couch, unzip my hoodie to reveal the lacy top of my bra, and press my breasts firmly against his bicep.
"Baby!" he swats me away. "I'm killing Nazis here! I'm saving our people!" His eyes are alight with righteous anger.***
