Don’t be suckered in by the beautiful visuals, the glowing reviews, the promise of a patient and meaningful story. Life is Strange is an ok game at first, but it’s a slow burn towards a raging dumpster fire of cringe-worthy sloppy writing. For those who have played the game and disagree – please hear me out. At first I didn’t want to admit I’d been conned either, but upon reflection I couldn’t get past the creeping feeling that something was terribly wrong. There is help for you, and coming to terms is the first step.
Sharin no Kuni is funded. Yay.
What the fuck, guys?
I mean, yay! Yay for the industry. I’m genuinely happy to see VNs being localized. There are too many great games that will never see the light of day over here, and Sharin no Kuni may have never gotten an official release in the West if it weren’t for the support of its fans. So, yay!
So last week we talked about something that I was not so enthused about, and to wash that crap out of my mouth I’ve decided to tell you about something that I love. In all caps, folks. LOVE.
So, you want to raise a psychopathic killer and you’re wondering how to do it. I’m impressed you thought to come to me with this. Gather ’round ole Stonewall, everyone, and let him tell you how to fuck your kid up. I know of nobody who is better suited to lecture on this subject.
You may or may not have noticed that I did absolutely nothing this weekend. While I forgive you for probably thinking this was in some way my fault, the truth is that I got tied up in forces that were simply too powerful for me.
This was going to be the week that I was going to review and discuss The Quiet Family and The Happiness of the Katakuris, two fantastic films that deserve a little resurrection.
You guys and gals ever notice how much crap people will lay on when they know they’re being scrutinized?
