So I'm watching the ten minutes of mildly spoilery Bioshock Infinite game footage that's just been released, 'cause if nothing else I can be relied upon in my nerdery targets, and exactly one minute in I hear the voice of Booker DeWitt, the protagonist.

And he's Garrett.

Seriously, he's Stephen Goddamn Russell doing his Garrett-voice, sounding as rough and cynical as he ever has (except more American. And less of a stoic loner).












SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET

I was excited about this before, because AEROSHOCK BIOSHIP BIOSHOCK WITH AIRSHIPS, but now I can add 'Ex-Pinkerton Garrett' to my mounting glee.

Flames. Flames! On the side! Of my face! Third point down for rage.

Oh god, I really don't want to feel guilty when I buy a PS3 for The Last Guardian once it comes out. Or stick to playing Mass Effect over and over because I can at least choose a badass lady as my protagonist. There's only so much Bioware I can take before I overdose and start dumping exposition on people. Rarghblarghrarghlargh.

EVERYONE EVERYONE

I think we can agree that the shame of failing to post for weeks can be easily assuaged by a new Bioshock game...

Especially one involving MOTHERFUCKING AIRSHIPS. And imperialism.

I SUSPECT I HAVE BEEN DEAFENED BY PURE JOY

OR IS THAT JUST MY SQUEEING

EITHER WAY

KEYBOARDMASH!!!!!!!!!

I are twenty-one!

That's one one, and one twenty! That's more than I can count on my fingers and toes!

...Oddly enough, so far it feels very much like being twenty. How anticlimatic.

It's been raining for the past week. Like, non-stop. Dog is displeased with this state of affairs. Towns up north are being flooded out. I never thought I would miss the searing light of the sun, but oh god humidity.

So let's have ourselves some meme answers and then go find a blanket.

Meme Answers, Part One: Reasons to Avoid People in Hoods )

More answers to come!

I still haven't finished that plot post, probably on account of I am physically unable to recap the game seriously. No, I have to fill it with jokes. Bad jokes. Terrible jokes. It is a great trial, I assure you, pondering whether it's funnier to mock the main character for being a jerk or the game's plot for being wonderfully insane. So what am I going to do to speed up this arduous task? Procrastinate with memes, of course! Whoo, yeah! This one was stolen from various fabulous people, including [livejournal.com profile] thebaconfat and [livejournal.com profile] rionaleonhart.

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.) (I revised this list way too many times.)

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments.
(Pretty please, flist?)

For example:

'One, Nine and Fifteen move in together. Is this a really bad idea?'
'Under what circumstances might Five and Seven fall in love?'
'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'
'What would Two experience in Silent Hill?'
'What Pokémon would Eight have?'
'Write a drabble in which Three and Eleven FIGHT CRIME.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Today, I could have either:

1) Saved some money so I can buy Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock 2 a little sooner.

OR

2) Bought a copy of Skulduggery Pleasant Book 4: Dark Days.

No one should have to make this decision. There is too much awesome involved. The other options should have been a Halo game or Dan Brown or something.







Dark Days has an awesome cover and I expect I'll finish it quickly. Must not look up game spoilers. Must not look up game spoilers. Must not look up game spoilers.

So I get a paid account and crow about it and the first thing I do is...post a meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] twilit_wanderer . YEAH, CONTENT.

Comment here and I'll pick three of your fandoms. You have to repost this with your answers to the questions in your journal.

Beast Wars, FFX, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and a great deal of silliness. )

So, guess who just used newly acquired super powers to get herself a paid account.








:D

No ads. No ads. Oh, it's so beautiful.

I was going to post this gigantic gamebabble post for Australia Day but the koala round-up went for longer than it usually does this year. I dunno, man, they’re quick little bastards.

So, about that Assassin’s Creed 2.

I have plenty of outlets! Spoilers for the opening. )

You know, it’s probably fortunate that AC2 managed to finally break me of my Thief habits. I probably wouldn't have gotten past Prototype's opening mission, otherwise.

I can see what he saw, I know what he knew, his memories are my memories. Spoilers for...everything. )

One final thing: Attention, bastardisers of Dante’s Inferno. That…is not quite how you effectively mock a fellow developer. Please stop before you dig yourselves in even further.

Here’s how you mock a fellow developer.

Many eons ago, I was given a letter and told to upload five or more songs starting with that letter, and let nobody say I do not eventually get the job done! If you give me, like. A few months, maybe.

This letter was given to me by [livejournal.com profile] thebaconfat, and it was the letter O. You can request one in the comments, if you like!

Things That Begin With O: Otter, Ocelot, Orange, Orang-utan )

Evidentially there was some sort of recent birthday.

Now, I'm sure the tradition wherever you're from is to celebrate said occasion on the date it occurs, which is all nice and quaint and traditional, certainly, but in my world we don't find out until later and hastily cobble together good wishes. That's my personal tradition and it has a long and glorious history. You can look it up.

Anyway.

I wish I could say some kind of incredibly clever thing that would live up to the cleverness of the fellow-whose-birthday-it-actually-isn't. Instead, I will play to my strengths and say something ridiculous:

I HOPE YOU HAD A HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] kadrin YOU ARE THE AWESOME IN THE AWESOME PIE

I had a dream wherein I got to wander around AC2 Renaissance Italy. It was beautiful. Then my subconscious decided to have it be attacked by zombies.

Playing through Assassin’s Creed 2 and Prototype simultaneously may not be good for my brain.

SO there exists a shapeshifting lifeform, created by a reasonably evil genius scientist mostly to show off his evil.

1) It/he - the distinction's pretty academic - is a living weapon. He's agile, strong, fast, adaptable and durable, with a capacity for knowledge best measured in the same terms as supercomputers, a foul mouth and a built-in, overwhelming urge to destroy.

2) No matter what his intentions, good or bad - and they're rarely good - he causes chaos. He is therefore pursued by the authorities and his creators, who are in an uneasy alliance. The former wants to contain or destroy him. The latter would rather cut him apart and put the pieces in something controllable.

3) The one thing stopping him from ending human civilization as his instincts demand is the location he happened to be unleashed upon. It's an island and his mass is too dense to displace enough water for swimming.

4) In a head-on collision of him and a truck, the truck comes off a lot worse.

Now that I have dispensed these facts, the question: am I talking about Alex Mercer a.k.a. DX-1118, or am I talking about Stitch a.k.a. Experiment 626?

(If you can't picture Mercer retorting to accusations of lunacy with "I prefer evil genius!", you probably take his canon more seriously than I do.)

(Also, in a manner of speaking, I'm back from hiatus. Things are different, and one of my plans for next year is to explain how! But that may have to wait until I am not on a parental computer that is filled with evil. In the meantime, enjoy game rambles and Happy New Year!)

Guys?

Officially, this journal is now on hiatus. I’ll still read my flist, but I have to concentrate on my schoolwork right now. I can still be reached via email if you want to talk.

See you soon! ♥

I'm bored. My degree of boredom is truly astonishing. I also have not posted in days.

To atone for my sin, and also to relieve my boredom, have a tiny little Thief picspam! Though you can click on the pictures to make them bigger. It is a strange and baffling state of affairs in a tiny picspam.

Thief: The Dark Project )

Thief: The Metal Age )

Thief: Deadly Shadows )

...Ah-hah. Okay, so that's why Desmond thought the Templars were lizard people. I was thinking he, Desmond, was just very strange, but it seems I was underestimating just how many different kinds of insane conspiracy theorists are.

Man, that was naive of me, wasn't it?






You know, I think the plot of Assassin's Creed makes more sense. Which is really saying something.

The Rules:

* Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!".
* I will then give you five words that remind me of you.
* Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

The words given to me by [livejournal.com profile] rimon:

1) Prototype (I'LL GET YOU FOR THIS) )

2) Thief )

3) Family )

4) Random Noises )

5) Adorable )

Now, to finish my laundry! Tally-ho!

The sky is orange. What the heck?

Edit: ...Oh, it's an apocalypse dust storm. Interesting.

Okay my rage was soothed today by that I found a cheap PC copy of Thief: Deadly Shadows. It's, weirdly, something where just playing it makes me happy - it's much more immersive playing it when my face is only a few inches from the screen and i have headphones. I've been taking screencaps.

...So you know what? Instead of being enraged, because being enraged makes me tired, I'll take some short fic requests. Fun will sooth my rage and save me a lot of arrests and property damage fines, and I think I need some practice writing in structures. Plus I just haven't been keeping up with this journal or my flist the way I'd like, which is sad because I really do rather adore you all, even if I don't express it enough.

So, give me a fandom, character/s and a theme or idea you'd like to see, and I will write you a fic about whose length I make no guarantees aside from that it will be short - maybe a few hundred words, depending.

Fandoms I'll write for:

Thief
Firefly
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Grim Fandango
The Old Kingdom Trilogy
Assassin's Creed
, possibly
Samurai Jack
Prince of Persia
(both Sands of Time and the new one)

If there's anything else you know I'm familiar that I've left out and you'd like to request, feel free. I am terribly flakey, though, I should warn; I make no promises.
