    If I'm getting the gist basically you can get hurt and then use the Motion and slide pad to heal using inventory items and what not ?
    Snake eater did this already. And I didn't have to do stupid movements for it. I'm almost positive the 3DS version doesn't require it either.

    Seems a bit unessecary. The concept of real time health mending itself is cool though .

    I have to appreciate a game with a good vomit mechanic... But that doesn't mean I'm not uncomfortable about it.

    Also, the Second Panel is priceless.

    I think this is less a comment on the game's specific implementation and more about generally goofy control mechanics.

    I've heard examples of swiping on the touch screen to cut down plants in your way with a machete, to piece together a torn up map, to melee brawl with dudes and to swing on vines, but I haven't heard anything about using it for healing.

    Oh for the days when games just used buttons.

    In Uncharted 1, I hated the parts where you had to use the sixaxis to help Drake balance on a log. I was so glad when I played Uncharted 2 and I didn't have to use the sixaxis even once.

    Oh man that second panel face.

    I've made that face. On an airline toilet, less than five minutes before landing with stewardesses banging on the door telling me to return to my seat.

    Plane landed with me in there. And after I got out a policeman and a paramedic were waiting for me.

    Worst poop ever.

  • GyralGyral Registered User regular
    Yeah this joke is great but as Anosognos said, it hits a little close to home because there's apparently some kinda stomach flu going through eastern NC and all of our friends are in varying states of stomach distress.

    Oh, I know - hard to puke out of a ruined butthole. But someone brought up Snake Eater, which did indeed have a vomit mechanic. And it squicked me then, too.

    That news post's first paragraph was funny to begin with.

    Then I went to watch some PATV. First ad? Disneyland.

    My recommendation is that if you want to hate your son, please take him to Disneyland. If you want a preview of his coming dereliction, and if you want to see the extent you have failed at preparing a person for life in the world, by all means take him to this cacophonous hellzone. The only succor on offer is to see how miserably your generational cohort has failed their children, also.

    ...huh?

    I think he is saying that the people you see (or, more likely, the people who stand out) at Disneyland are not the greatest representation of the potential for selflessness and immaterialism in human society.

    Or maybe referencing the fact that Disneyland is set up to tempt any kid into misbehaving.
    It's loud, crowded and there are over priced souvenir stands and carts every 5 feet, each laden with brightly colored easily recognizable crap that sinks it's hooks into a child's brain like a fisherman.
    Given that setting, it's very easy for a kid of any age to get distracted and lured from his parents to go gawk at (and eventually beg/whine/cry for) said over priced mass produced crap.

    It's hardly representative of the failure in parenting that Gabe seems to think it is. I mean Disney pays people a crap ton of money to figure out how to turn your well behaved child into a raving, grasping, screaming monster begging for just one more souvenir.
    The fact that it's happening to everyone else's kids too should be indicative of something, even if it's only that Disney got it's moneys worth from the imagineers who designed this cash vacuum in the first place.

    I can't speak for Disneyland, but Disney World is a pretty great place to take kids...especially if you prepare well before hand.

    For example, go to Wall-Mart before hand and pick up some disney stuff for cheap. There was a ton of discounted stuff at the one not 5 miles from Disney property when we went. Each morning before going into the park, give your kid one of those cheaply purchased items. Much less whiny, and doesn't stress out your wallet nearly as much.

    The most defeated person I have ever seen in my entire life was this father hanging out in the lobby of a Disney hotel on perpetually rainy day, with his kids going insane from being at Disney but not able to do anything at Disney. I thought he needed either a hug or cyanide. Maybe both. @Didgeridoo can back me up on this one.

    Luckily we are going to Disney World then! Thanks Sticks, I'll have to do that. Maybe I'll need to pack the cyanide too.

    Looking into that man's face made me understand the true meaning of despair. Paid all that money to fly his entire family out to Disney World and all he could do was sit with his head in his hands, as his child consumed a mickey-shaped waffle and asked when they'd be going to the park

    Cyanide hugs were in order

    Don't worry though Steph, rainy days like that are very rare in Florida. You'll most likely get good weather, at least!

    Yea, that can't be easy, but how bad was it raining? We just grabbed some ponchos from the gift shop and headed over to Animal Kingdom to look at animals and do their indoor stuff. Hollywood studios is almost entirely indoor things as well.

    Tycho bringing some balance to the Vita sloppy blowjob article on the PA Report. I believe those guys love it I really do, but now the 3DS has dropped price I find it hard to see anything to indicate that history is not about to give an almost exact repeat as it is often wont to do.

    I think there is too much discussion about Disneyplaces and not enough about this glorious comic. I love it so much, and am very sad that it is not really suitable for sharing with non-PA readers.

    Well sure, but there are other means of procuring rain gear (e.g. pack some). Otherwise, you spent all that money to get your family there just to sit in the lobby...

    Alternatively, learn to predict the weather 6 months in advance so you can go when you know it's nice out.

  • DidgeridooDidgeridoo Registered User regular
    The rain during these particular few days was very windy, cold (well, you know, for Florida), and unrelenting... ponchos would have definitely helped, but it still probably would have been pretty miserable navigating the parks with little kids in tow

    But about the comic! I too am rather tired of developers implementing silly control schemes in videogames just because they can. I can't really think of a game that's done it in a way that offers an improvement over a normal joystick. Also thumbs up for the evocative use of "roiling"
