Load up Modern Warfare on the PS3, and it brings up a screen titled “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare” with a yes/no choice… We hit yes, and nothing happened. Then we took the game out and nothing happened. Then we quit the game, and the PS3 freezes… Well played, Activison, well played…
Aaawww. My cat came rushing up to me as soon as I got in, then fell asleep on my feet. He’s so cute.
Boar drifting ftw!
So I’m playing NieR, and I go on a quest to a haunted manor. Inside, I meet the young master, a boy named Emil, who has his eyes covered by a blindfold, because he is cursed an anyone he looks at is petrified. I search around for his butler, who isn’t human, and it turns out his name is Sebastien. So awesome!
DC: So Marvel's movies have been doing really, really well.
Me: Yep, they've done a great job of keeping the characters recognizably themselves but simplifying their histories for movie audiences who may not have read the comics.
DC: It's a huge franchise now.
Me: It is! And I'm really happy about it!
DC: ....we're doing some new stuff, too. With Green Arrow.
Me: Oh. That's cool. Like what?
DC: It's a TV show. He crashes on an island and everyone thinks he's dead and he comes back years later to right wrongs and stuff.
DC: Yeah, and his mom is evil!
Me: ....wait, what?
DC: Yeah! Yeah, and Black Canary is his ex-girlfriend and her dad is the cop that's chasing him!
DC: Except she's not Canary, she's just Dinah Lance. Except her name isn't Dinah, it's Laurel.
DC: And he's not really like Ollie that much. He's more like Batman but with a bow and arrow.
DC: Yeah, it's gonna be cool.
DC: Like Smallville.
DC: In that we change everything about the character but throw in enough WB-style teen drama to draw in non-comic fans.
DC: And put in just enough nods to the comic to get desperate DC fans to talk about how maybe it might not be such a terrible thing.
DC: Because it's basically the only thing they've got to cling to right now.
DC: Because the new Batman movie looks even more shit than the first two were.
Me: I hate you.
I come home, and the house has been cleaned. I start up NieR on the PS3, make a cappuccino, my cat comes down to be with me, life is pretty good right now.
Chris: The guy is dead, and you light him on fire, his smoldering corpse falling to the ground.
Chelsea: Tee hee! Giggle!
My hair. My brown hair, freshly bleached. My really cool orangey-yellow-copper hair. Hell yeah. Pictures on the morrow.
