001909 gives us a taste of more knowledge  of how John Egbert’s sylladex functions, and that’s about it. John captchalogues some smoke pellets for later use, and they shunt the fake arms back a ‘slot’ in his sylladex. In 001910 we get the lovely Hussieism: “You aren’t totally sure if “EQUIP” is a verb copasetic with the abstract behavioral medium in which you dwell, but you give it a try anyway.” To John that sort…

Paradoxes

HOOBOY. 001907 introduces us to two concepts, captchaloguing and sylladexes. Two funny words that would be the basis of a lot of the humor and antics of the early comic, and then fade out into obscurity and uselessness as the comic went on. Did sylladexes come up even once in act 6? I really doubt it. They were a modus that the comic very much left behind as it evolved. MSPA always used video game…

Boycott Capcom!!!!

Capcom Announces Unreplayable Game “Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D for the Nintendo 3DS will be an experience that can be completed once per customer. Using a single, unwipable save slot Capcom ensures that a second hand customer gets a second rate experience. If you buy this game used, you will be stuck with the previous owner’s progress, unable to start the game fresh.” Original article Slashdot DO NOT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS BULLSHIT. If…

Life story: Willow Kintobor (sonic fancharacter)

Willow’s an old fancharacter/Mary-Sue of mine, and still one of my favorites. She originated on a loooong car ride when I was about 14/15, and accumulated personality, backstory, and (much to my chagrin) an incestuous relationship along the way. Willow is the daughter of Lillian Kintobor (sister of Julian and Colin). Lilly ran off with a Mobian Raccoon man, much to her family’s displeasure, and Willow was the inevitable result. Shortly after Willow’s birth her…

Alan Wake

Two weeks ago I played a game called Alan Wake that had pretty much just come out. I’ve spent the last weeks kinda chewing it over in my mind and deciding what to say about it. Firstly, I’d like to make it clear that I wasn’t one of those people who’d been following the game’s development for years. I’d probably heard about it somewhere along the line, but it wasn’t on my radar until Yahtzee…

Bunny has been playing Robot Unicorn Attack but Bunny is not very good at it. It is very pretty and neat and makes Bunny want to watch Rainbow Brite. But Mordax says rainbow Brite will make Mordax ill. So Bunny will draw instead. -Bunny ♥ &heartsl

Update of an old pic I did when I was just starting drawing. The Happy Mask Man from Zelda- even the face he shows isn’t real. DeDraMo 11. Pencil, photoshop. 1 1/2 hours. Who is that Happy Mask Man by ~Greer-The-Raven on deviantART For comparison- the original. Drawn in 2003. The Happy Mask Man by ~Greer-The-Raven on deviantART

DeDraMo 9 (catch up from yesterday to come later.) Having just finished Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, I needed to draw some father-daughter tenderness. Pencil, pen, photoshop. 2 hours. Silent Hill:SM I Need Love by ~Greer-The-Raven on deviantART EDIT: DeDraMo 10 catchup Here’s James Sudnerland. I love James. He looks like someone’s following him! That can’t be good! Pencil, photoshop. 1 hour. SH2: Anxious James by ~Greer-The-Raven on deviantART

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Complete Review (Spoiler Free)

Story: The story is amazing. If you enjoyed the stories is the first 3 Silent Hills, this game will be a joy to you. It has a tight narrative, well acted and superbly paced. The game play and story fit together like a glove. The use of the psychology tests to tailor the details of the story to the specific player are used masterfully, and fit easily within the whole narrative. The characters are all…

Shattered Memories

Harry’s doc needs his license revoked for being a serious asshole. <lj-cut text="we're in the…" Mall now, a couple of chase scenes later. Still dying, but its less fursterateing now that I have the hang of it. I feel just as disoriented as harry to the plot though. Oh, and Cybil thinks I killed Lisa. O_O

Shattered Memories

Finally got through the 2nd chase sequence. Looking back, it was fun, although MASSIVELY frustrating the first 20 or so times I died. Finally made it to a check point (and puzzle) which gave me back my encouragement to keep playing. I’m out of the chase now, standing on a bridge. So far, I am liking the game, though I’m barely into it. Its neat to see the psych stuff play out in the game.

Shattered Memories

This game is beautiful; however; I am stuck in the dark, in the woods, with only a flashlight, and no sense for direction. I have been killed about 15 motherfucking times trying to run through this motherfucker with no sense that I am getting closer to a victory. I have to retry from the beginning of the chase sequence every time. This game does not play to my strengths. -Mordax

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

So, Shattered Memories is out today. Having had it pre-ordered for ages and ages I am soooo excited to go pick it up after work (before D&D assuming we go). We have taken tomorrow off to play it, and will be putting a blackout curtain in our room for effect. I may end up posting our thoughts during breaks in play. LJ-cut so no one who doesn’t want to be spoiled will be. I have…

First impressions of World of Warcraft

Those of you who know me well know that historically, MMORPGs and I don’t get along. After trying several different ones, most notably Final Fantasy XI and Matrix Online I was pretty much willing to say that I just don’t like them as a genre. However, a bunch of my IRL friends (and some OL ones) are hardcore WOW enthusiasts, to the point where I know a *lot* about the game considering I’m a non-player.…

Wii would like Silent Hill

So, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is coming out in september, and I really, really want it. It’s coming out on both PS2, and the Wii. The only difference with the wii supposedly will be slightly better graphics, the ability to point the controller as the flashlight, and have sound come out of it like your cell-phone. For some reason that I’m unable to ascertain those last two points are *vitally* important to me, so I’m…

So I got Pokemon Pearl

Pokemon Journey: Sinnoh By Lejindarybunny Summary: Fender didn’t know what he was going to do with his life, but he’d never had an ambition to be a trainer. But now, thanks to his impulsive friend Fender is off on a journey to research and train Pokemon for Prof. Rowan. Will he grow close to his Pokemon and learn their secrets? A novelization of Pearl. A/N: This story grew out of the idea I had to…

So…

So I didn’t get the net shut off. On the other hand, the phone did get turned off. Darn. Oh well, I can deal. In other news, EightofHearts has decided that I am into Jak and Daxter. I really didn’t have any say in the matter. Hence the new layout. All I have to say is evil guys in victorian clothing pwn wiseass guys with unutterable names.
