...It really was a tankless job.
One could say he was cannonized,
Yeah, it's a lot of bang for your buck.
So I told him 'it's a total overkill'
He kept shooting and not hitting the other spaceship and was getting angry about it. After about the third time:
Me: Well, what are you using?
Him: Huh? (still focused intensely on game)
Me: Like for artillery, what are you using to shoot?
Me: Ah, well there's your problem.
Took a few minutes, but eventually he realized.
It was the most tense moment of our relationship so far.
