Battleblock Theatre Is For Jerks
Brandon sucks at Battleblock Theatre and Erik is an ass (aka THE BEST PLAYER EVER)
Sometimes The Internet gets drunk and says something stupid and you want to complain... or let us know how we're doing.
One thing I’ve lamented about in anime is it’s true lack of real pacing. Most often the case is the anime seems to have no pacing whatsoever and basically meanders about like Luffy from One Piece (Yeah I said it, how many episodes has it been, man needs to get shit done), or the anime is singular episodes of intense action, swiftly followed by a beach episode.
Seriously it was like the majority of the writers knew that Gamergate was gonna come up and preemptively left. I mean we have a fine discussion of it, and the issues around it. Jesus christ though I wondered if I wanted to know what it was about, and the answer is no I did not. We do discuss actual articles though despite this, so hey at least there’s that.
So, as expected, EA ran out of money for sports cars, hookers, and blow, or whatever else it is they spend their ludicrous amounts of money on (because it certainly isn’t game devs), and came out with The Sims 4. However, with the beloved pool feature in ALL of the other Sims games (yes, that was directed at you EA) missing from the content, how EVER shall we murder our sims!?
I will admit that I do sincerely try not to just pull my ideas from things that I see on that there internet, but no this weeks image (and the inspiration for the article proper) is totally wholesale stolen. To my detractors – hey I’ve been doing this every week for a year give me a break. To those who’ve already ignored the intro and are moving on from me talking about shit that’s not anime sucks – I salute you.
You may or may not believe that the friend-zone is an actual thing in real life.
However in the sad world of Anime, it is pretty much a cornerstone element of a wide variety of shows.
First person shooters are notoriously difficult to pull off on a mobile gaming system. If you owned a psp like I did, you probably waited the entire life-cycle of the system for a decent FPS, only to get mediocre-to-terrible titles like Coded Arms and Medal of Honor: Heroes. Those portable FPS games were all plagued with the same frustrating problems: terrible controls, brain-dead AI, and a claustrophobic screen. The situation is even bleaker on faux-gaming systems with no buttons like the iPhone and iPad.
As some of you may or may not know, I am regularly employed by my local renaissance faire. I am a writer, an actress, and a singer for them. This year I took the year off from the stage and assisted my dear friend Frank in the writing of the musical, “50 Shades of Greymarsh” over at King Richards Faire. (Allow me to preface this blog with the fact that none of the opinions or statements or incoherent ramblings of this blog in any way reflect the owners or management of King Richards Faire, in fact, it doesn’t have really anything to do with them at all. That being said…) Theatre is a hell of a business. And when the lyrics “There’s no business like show business, there’s no business I know” are sung, both cheers and groans of agreement ring throughout the venue.
Well it’s the Buffalo here once again, giving you that mostly unfiltered, unedited, podcast experience that is writerscast. And it truly is an ‘experience’. As we give you XP for listening. Seriously ask Erik@nerdfit.com for the XP for completing this quest. You may need to provide 5 tidbits of what actually happened, but don’t ask me, because I do not remember.
