Wolf’s Wicked Words: Dreaming, Michael Biehn And Gaming
I’m just going to say it – dreams are damn weird.
So many people I have talked to, told me about their dreams and it’s usually a convoluted mess of images consisting of lunacy, talk of irrationality and situations of absurdity. (This is mostly me talking, but I have signed documents of the people I’ve spoken to about this.)

I awoke yesterday to a dream that had something “gaming-like” somewhere hidden underneath the snowy blanket of psychopathy. It involved a voice actor from a game’s behind the scenes video that I have watched not too long ago and I’m not overly familiar with his movies and / or voice acting career.
So, we have Michael Biehn from FarCry 3 Blood Dragon talking about how the curtains of a theater function whilst sitting on the stage, on his haunches and reaches out to take some gaming postcards I’ve been carrying around in my hand for some reason and beginning to sign the The Day The Earth Stood Still from 2008 movie postcard; complaining about how there were no Terminator 2 postcards when he visited the store himself. (Awkward silence.)
This isn’t the weirdest I’ve had, but at least it was gaming related. Which brings me to the remaining two percent of readers from two weeks ago – the last time I scarred you good folks and am now proceeding to talk to you about gaming orientated dreams and the rarity thereof. I either struggle with sleeplessness or it’s so ironically contradictory; I simply cannot to open my eyes when I need them to. (Perhaps I should lay off the glue-sniffing for the time being.)
I’ve always had the fascination about the events going on behind the scenes of the movies and games I enjoy and tend to watch interviews before a game comes out or even after I’ve played the game. I remember there was one Assassin’s Creed II video interview that I watched so many times out of pure anticipation; I could recite Patrice Désilets’ words while watching. (That is sad, guys, really sad.) However, what struck me with this dream was that it was a short video interview with Michael Biehn at UbiSoft, talking about Blood Dragon and that of all things inspired this dream to pop up while my hamster was doing his late night filing and I’m busy snoring, but not one of the million BioShock Infinite videos I watched over and over ever appeared while rummaging through my subconscious dustbins.
This is probably my third dream in my entire 109 years on this Earth where gaming was concerned. I played F.E.A.R. and Hitman: Codename 47 to the point of upsetting everyone else living with me and those were the only two games that ever spilled over into my comatose dumpster. Which is actually rare considering the fact that I breathe, talk and live gaming, but no, I dream about unsettling whispers and shopping for 10 liter bottles of milk while waiting for Pikachu afterwards to drive us home. Not a single Skyline in sight.
So, how are the remaining 0.2 percent of readers still doing?
The point I’m eventually trying to get to in this acid-infused column is the odd idea of rarely / never dreaming about a hobby I’m very passionate about. It is like like astronauts dreaming about collapsing mines and cattle grazing on a landscape in the heart of the sun.
My hidden agenda for you to read this far has finally come to fruition. Do tell us if you have gaming related dreams and what they are all about? (Erotic tales are welcome via e-mail.)
