    Default Facepalm Moments While Gaming

    You know you have those times where you do something while playing a game and you feel like facepalming yourself for it. I have. A lottof them, too. One time when I was playing Kingdom Hearts 2, I was using Valor Mode Sora and was fighting a bunch of Neo Shadows when Donald Duck died suddenly. I decide,"Well since Donald's dead I might as well do something with Goofy." But just as I'm about to make a collaboration with Goofy, he falls dead from fighting a neoshadow I didn't even see.
    *Facepalm* Seriously..... I know they're strong and all but really?
    Five minutes later I died.

    Zombies in RPGs. I'll be facing a zombie for a long time and then decide "maybe healing will work", so I cure it and find out it's a one-hit kill.

    Today in Black Ops 2.

    We were playing Capture The Flag, and I was running in and around our spawn guarding our flag. Well my teammate yelled, "Dude wth are you doing?" I died a few seconds later and noticed my character pooped out the flag, which prompted me to say, "Dude, I had the flag this whole time and I didn't cap it!?'

    Needless to say we all laughed our butts off XD....after I headdesked T_T

    Yeah... so many facepalm moments resulting from just sheer bad luck (i.e. a blatantly clear and easy bazooka shot somehow gets interrupted by a literally invisible 1x1-pixel block placed just in front of your Worm's face....)


    I had a few facepalm moments last night. Or, they were more facepalm-because-they-are-funny moments. It involved a friend trying to troll me on Blur, and him getting pissed because every single time he tried to Bolt me I'd put a Shield up, and after the 6th time it happened he was just like "OH MY GOD STOP DOING THAT!!"

    And I was just like "trololololol."

    I did do a few races on Forza Horizon that I literally facepalmed on. Because I went a game of King where literally every time I turned my car, I rolled it. Dunno how that works, but eh..

    My dad has done that so many times. I've seen others do that too while I'm playing. They'll be like "Dude, why are you around me like that?" "I'm watching your back cuz you have the flag!" "OMG what?" XD They really need to make a sound for when you grab the flag.

    My CoD facepalm moments are when I run past an enemy that I should've seen, but when I watch my playback vid, I see them. Then I'm like "How did we not see each other?" or "How did he not shoot me right there? I ran right in front of him."

    I usually go with 0-2 deaths in CoD, so when I see these things, it always baffles me.

    When people buy a game with an expansive universe and lore and act like they know everything, then they go on to ask every little detail about what the game is about and how to play it. Then, when you help them and all, they once again act like they know everything.
    This makes me want to blow my brains out...with a facepalm.

    Default Re: Facepalm Moments While Gaming

    I think my biggest facepalm gaming moment was when I was playing my first run through The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

    Eventually, I reach the grand finale and am getting all excited about facing off with Ganondorf. Oh yeah, I'm feeling pretty optimistic and smug at the thought of kicking the crap out of him, especially having taken out Zant without much difficulty--and before that, The Cave of Ordeals (albeit barely).

    It was all going so well... until Ganondorf turned into Ganon and I found myself apparently unable to throw him as Wolf Link. Every so often, he'd launch out of a brief portal and charge at me; but so long as I could initially evade him, I'd have a small window in which to target his "weakspot" afterwards. Or so I initially thought...

    As I approach a disorientated Ganon, a "Grab" prompt suddenly pops up on the screen with an "A" button icon. At this point, I'm wondering, "Why do I need to grab him? Oh well...". I proceed to grab him anyway, guessing that this is what I need to do in order to defeat him and reach my ultimate goal.

    Surely enough, I'm grabbing Ganon now; but then... "What the...". To my surprise, Ganon shakes me off, then resumes his business of charging me. I try to grab him again; and surely enough he shrugs me off again. Half an hour of supposedly failed attempts later, I'm seriously beginning to wonder what I must be doing wrong--and to be frank, getting paranoid...

    Were this any other game I would have been more rational and at least taken a break to regroup. But this is Zelda... and one does not simply walk away from an epic boss battle in Zelda--especially when it's Ganondorf; not for a sammich; not for a pee; not even to save one from dying in a fire. Besides, I had come too far with Zelda TP; I'd be damned if I were going to leave this game right here, right now. Needless to say, I had grown quite involved with Zelda, especially with Midna. Unlike Navi in Ocarina of Time, Midna was interesting, had a personality, a past. I even liked the fact that she used and teased Link at the beginning of the game; and now I was but one step away from witnessing the concluding events of her life.

    Yet another lot of time passes without my noticing, and by now Ganon has succeeded in chipping away all but 3 of my hearts of health. I've exhausted all my weapons, taken all the health in the area and am feeling about as smart as a moth with brain damage. Unless I come up with something new, I'm surely going to die--and not so much because this Ganon's outplaying me, but because he's outlasting me while I haven't a clue how to defeat him.

    I look at the time, and of course, it's really late. Now, I like to think that I'm normally a considerate person, but on this occasion I couldn't help myself. At 11.45 I reach for my cellphone to call my brother, hoping that he hasn't yet gone to bed. For a very brief moment, the bit of rationally I have left in mind advises me: "It's only a game at the end of the day, so surely you can leave this untill the morning".

    Yeah right... Like HELL I'm going to wait. THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!!

    Fortunately by bro is still up. I knew some time ago that he had played and completed Zelda TP before me, so I tell him my situation:

    ...

    "So how do I stop Ganon from shrugging me off?"
    "Well, you do like it says on the screen. You know, like grab him?"
    "Well that's what I have been doing! I've been pressing A until I'm blue in the face and been doing that for like, 2 hours... and now I'm down to 3 hearts. It's doing my head in!"
    "Wait... did you just say you were "pressing" A?"
    "Uhm... yeah... why?"
    "As in pressing and not holding A?"

    I think for a moment.

    "Well, if I've not been been doing it right, how can it be that I've got this far in the game? I mean, like, don't you think I would have got stuck earlier? Like, say in that part where you have to grab and toss those Gorons off Death Mountain to get to the mines or something?"
    "Well, just saying... that's what you need to do."
    "*Sighs* Well, okay, I'll hold A like you said--although I think that's what I was doing in the first place."

    I say my goodbyes and return to Zelda TP, remembering my brother's words and not feeling all that hopeful.

    "So all I need to do is hold down A then, huh?"

    So once again I'm facing Ganon, and surely enough I get into a grapple with him. I press and hold "A" (very hard), expecting him to shake me off just as he did before.

    But he doesn't.

    "What's this? A submission? OMG, I've thrown him!"

    This time I pause the game not believing what I just did at my brother's advice, and then assess what I have been doing wrong in the past 2 or so hours. My mind immediately flashes back to when I was struggling to throw Ganon before. "Come to think of it, was I actually holding A while grabbing him?". To my horror, I suddenly realise the simple and obvious truth.

    "I was never holding down the "A" button; I were merely tapping it, ALL THIS DAMNED TIME!"

    So there it is. Apparently, I had been playing Zelda for so long in one session that I had literally forgotton the basics. To be more precise, I had forgotton what Mayor Bo said to me back in Ordon Village near the beginning of the game as I intitially failed to stop a charging goat. "Next time, hold A to set your feet in the ground and stop a goat's charge." (Something like that...).

    And with that I shut off Zelda and went to bed, suddenly realising that all my anticipated sense of involvement and epicness in fighting Ganondorf had been killed off with that revelation. At least until the morning...
