Winter-een-mas 2019, p8

January 14, 2019 by Tim

I played the Resident Evil 2 demo this weekend. I dig it. It’s been so long since I played the original, I feel like I barely remember it, but the remake does seem like it’s going to do a bit of its own thing as well. Looking forward to playing it later this month.

It also reminded me that I never played Resident Evil 7. I wanted to, but I heard such good things about it in VR, that I thought I’d wait to see if it came to my Oculus. Doesn’t seem like that’s likely, so I decided to just sit down and play it. You can catch the first couple hours here, and I’ll be on tonight streaming a bit more. It’s basically a lot of this:

I must say I’m a little disappointed in Ethan …

Go Games! You can do it!

You can play for the Crown Bowl every time during the year, but sex, sex is rarely offered every time during the year. It’s a no-brainer.

What, a lightsaber without the high ground? I’m disappointed in you.

Sex is clearly taller than games and therefore automatically has the high ground.

Agreed, I was expecting to see it on a little hill doing the high ground quote lol ^^

The RE2 demo reminded me of RE4… which is a good thing.

I actually searched for that page, but didn’t remember which year it was.

But this Ethan seems to be easier distracted than the old one, because Emily hasn’t even opened her hoodie yet.

Yeahh, I can play videogames any time. Hot, nerdy, willing booty call? That takes absolute precedence.

Ethan, I’m so disappointed in you. You have to decide between sitting at your desk playing a game, and fooling around with your girlfriend?

This is what a hybrid console was MADE for. Go grab your Switch and multitask.

You can do both, Ethan. You can do both. You know you’re ready for The Crown Bowl when you do both effectively at the same time.

Can’t help feeling this should have been framed the same as the Anikin Obiwan fight from episode 3, with the game brain not having the high ground.

…and apparently I was both wrong *and* late to the party. Fair penance for being a slow typist on mobile, I suppose, but a good old-fashioned qwerty will always be my first love.

I got a kick out of writing it anyhow, and sometimes life is about the journey.

I think that was the intended reference, though mayhaps* it might have been a bit more clear.

I suspect, with the almighty power of the mouse and his army of copyright lawyers backing Star Wars, that while parody is indeed protected under copyright law, Mr. Buckley may have opted the safe route of changing the dialogue just enough to make the reference, while still avoiding unholy gaze of said soulless host of attorneys.

This is, of course, just my own colorful speculation.

*Yes, I said “Mayhaps”. I’ve been reading Blood and Fire, big-deal-wanna-fight-about-it?

Its just meant to be a completely one sided fight. Sex is bigger stronger and armed with a lightsaber.
Crown Bowl has a wooden sword.

I feel it worked well, as the smaller brain has what appears to be a wooden sword.

I got more of a David / Goliath vibe on it, but David was much more prepared. Games doesn’t stand a chance.

That makes sense. In many ways, I feel like the Meme has become the macro equivalent to an inside joke. While I love a good inside joke, the way they rely entirely upon pre-existing context, there’s often no real thought; you’re either part of the in-group and get it or you’re not and you don’t. Not all humor should make you think to get the joke, but it’s also nice to have some that does. Or at least that’s my two cents. However, if you’re thinking of changes for the sake of clarity, maybe it’s as simple as changing the… Read more »

Your message comes through clearly, no need to change anything. While a battleaxe would certainly seem way more badass than a wooden toy sword, nothing trumps a lightsaber.

Don’t know about Ethan specifically, but let’s be honest, the idea that for men the lust for sex will overpower everything else is just a silly myth. Same for bacon lol.

Not with the right girl. With the right girl (or guy if that’s your speed), the lust for sex overpowers anything.

ANYTHING.

ok…why was the decision made to omit Emily’s eyes in the 3rd frame? Is it supposed to be the slight from the screen reflecting off the lenses? But if that were the case, it’s not like that in the 4th frame.
