Gods, I feel so gods depressed in the wake of Bioshock Infinite. Think I need to get lost in something fun or upbeat.
Still trying to finish up Dragon Quest IV, but I really want to put everything I’m currently playing on hold and dig into some soul food, feel good games. Preferably something I’ve not touched before.
There’s stuff like Space Quest or Leisure Suit Larry, of course, but I’m wondering if there’s anything in my backlog that’d be more relaxing.
This is the End and the endless jokes about rape
Let’s talk about This is the End.
It’s celebrity rpf (Apocalypse AU) and whatever, the beginning of the movie is sort of fun, with a lot of cameos and celebrities running around partying.
tl;dr version: Ton of rape jokes, Emma Watson made so uncomfortable during filming that she walked off set and was subsequently mocked for it, and everything we know about Seth Rogen’s ‘comedy’ is confirmed.
Yikes. This makes me sad. I don’t really want to see this movie anymore. Or really any movie with these actors.
They mocked Emma Watson when she walked off the set? Well, here’s a movie I’m ready to see go down in flames. Maybe it’ll become a black mark on their careers forever! :D
I mean seriously, this is the sort of this the press eats up like candy. I say she should quit the film if possible. I know I would.
Girlfriend mode 2.0
Mr. Koizumi: And now that Peach has been included, I’m also hoping that people will be able to play the game with their girlfriends
Oh god no.
All I can think of this senior at my cousin’s graduation who wore high heels on the turf - despite them telling grads not to - and stumbling when she tries to show off for the attenders.
“my life as a trans woman: the video game!” is not a valid video game, don’t kid yourselves!
Then please tell us, O Gatekeeper of Art & Culture, what is a “valid videogame”? I’d be very interested to hear what qualifies according to you, and what criteria should be used in evaluating the question.
*looks at rest of gigtherainbowdrinker’s blog*
On second thought, I’m not interested in your opinion. Anyone who doesn’t believe in their own position enough to defend it, and then tries to use homophobic slurs to win arguments doesn’t bear listening to. Also, feeding trolls can be hazardous to one’s health.
For some reason I can’t leave comments, so I just wanted to say that regardless of anything else, I do think it’s a clunky name. I’d have to look it up to find out, but usually “the video game” makes me think of a game based on movies or books.
Microsoft has declared war, not on Nintendo, not on Sony, not even on Apple, but on YOU. Microsoft declared war on the consumer. And that, I’m afraid, will not do.
Oh man, I remember getting stuck the first time playing cause I didn’t know I had to activate these.
I’m aware i’ve been posting a fair bit today but this is the last one. Reblogged for absolute truth.
This sort of becomes redundant when a developer decides to start over charging for their games. Yes, making a game costs time, possibly resources, and sometimes even money. However there are plenty of times when a game comes out and reflects none of that.
Aliens: Colonial Marines comes to mind, as does Duke Nukem Forever.
I am not advocating that more games should be free, but I do feel more thought and/or consideration ought to be put into the suggested retail price. Charging $20+ for a game I can beat in a day already feels like a slap in the consumer’s face, charging AAA prices is more like a knife to your gut.
All right, expect a very long and ranty Bioshock Infinite post sometime today.. or tomorrow.. depends on how long I have to beat my head against a wall.
There’s so many things wrong with this game that I feel like my brain is beginning to hemorrhage. However, I can say this much now.
I’m never playing this game again.
Also, the outfit she chooses is in fact Lady Comstock’s outfit. If you pay attention you can see posters saying that you can seeher dress in the zeppelin. She chose her mother’s dress but ditched the bodice, which could also be read as some kind of symbolism: wanting to be different, not wanting to end up like her mother. ugh I read a great article about it and if I could find it I’d post it here.
(funny how many complain about Elizabeth’s outfit but nobody says anything about Booker’s outfit also looking quite different from the rest of NPC’s outfits)
Oh man, and I just said I wasn’t gonna talk about Infinite until I finished the game. Oh well..
The odds of her mother’s out actually fitting her are slim at best, and there’s a spoiler-y reason for this. However, more to the point, her mother was older and therefore likely to be more full-figured, making it even more unlikely that Elizabeth would fit into it. Furthermore, even if we stretch the suspension of disbelief to breaking point to accept she could somehow fit into the damn thing, there is absolutely no way she could still do everything she’s been doing and keep up with Booker.
I spent a lot of time looking at Elizabeth in the first half of the game - it’s kind of hard not to with the cutscenes, dialogue, and other moments. The two models used do not even look the same age, or are the developers seriously trying to imply that she somehow became skinnier, bustier, and wider in the hips just from cutting her hair?
Okay, everyone.. I promise not to talk about Bioshock Infinite anymore until I’m finished with it. Buy gods, that’s gonna be one hell of a rantstorm later.
