    Fun fact about me: I have a fair bit of social anxiety, and one of the effects is that sometimes I'll ramble endlessly about the last thing I watched or listened to in a desperate attempt to fill conversational space.

    Today, on my way to meet someone for a date, I listened to part of Ep 10 of Let's Place, since several people in this thread recommended it.

    This is the story of how I spent the first 30 minutes of my date in white-knuckle terror, desperately trying to keep myself from talking about Elsa Dentist.

    Ryoko is Wrex

    Edit: I say, not having listened to the conversation

    Edit2: Mihoshi is Garrus (technically a law person and dorky goofball)
    I could probably keep going, but I have a terrible memory for names.

    But wait, there's more!
    Ayeka is Ashley, because I'm pretty sure she was "my race is the best race" at first.
    Washu would be Mordin, because space wizard-scientists.
    Ryo-oki was a cat-rabbit that was also a ship, but was also a cute cat-rabbit girl that wanted Tenchi Shepard's bone, so there's EDI.
    Sasami would be... Tali? It sort of breaks down here, but Tali was in a coming of age quest, sasami was ... Drawn very young... Okay yeah that's not the best fit.

    Did you ever notice how every movie villain is just really ugly beyond belief?

    Emperor Palpatine? WRINKLED UP UGGO.

    Jafar? POINTY FACE.

    Scar? LITERALLY NAMED AFTER HIS FACIAL DEFORMITY.

    It's fucking dark when you think about how many movies this applies to; how the villain is usually someone trying to live a normal or equal life, but their ugliness just gets in the way. 'The Incredibles' is a perfect example. The villain is an ugly-little redhead kid who just wants for everybody to be a superhero, but the Incredibles are like NNNNNNOPE and throw him into a jet engine because only they should get to be superheroes.

    Yeah, of course Syndrome kills like 30 other superheroes and sets a giant death robot loose on a major metropolis, but just go with us for this thought experiment. His heart was in the right place. On this week's podcast Jack O'Brien welcomes Cracked's own Katie Goldin and Michael Swaim to unpack this trope and how you can see ugly bad guys ostensibly trying to do the right thing in franchises from Disney to The Lord of the Rings.

    Man I hope them hiring Katie means she's on the podcast a lot more in the future because she's great and the Bird Rights Activist twitter is one of the best twitters.

    Man, I just had the best idea for a musician/song based pun involving the power rangers, but upon looking up the specifics, I found the artist I had in mind was not the one who made the song. Now I'm bummed out.
    in case you're curious, it was going to be Zordon Lightfoot sings Rita, until I found that Layla was sung by Eric Clapton.

    Dammit dammit dammit.

    okay so metal gear is a bipedal, nuclear-equipped walking tank

    in the original games there was this agent named "solid snake" who fought the metal gears

    they made several metal gear games, and then the first 3d one was called metal gear solid, which at the time just seemed like a subtitle that both referenced the name of the protagonist and alluded to the "solid" 3d graphics, as opposed to flat 2d sprites

    metal gear solid was hugely popular so then the sequel was called metal gear solid 2, which kind of made sense because it was very intentionally riffing on the specific events of metal gear solid, so it was like a sequel to that specific game rather than just metal gear 4

    but then the next game was metal gear solid 3, which was set before the original metal gear, and at this point it was clear that "metal gear solid" was just the name of the series, even though it seemed like it was just another entry into metal gear

    but, you can also look at "solid" as referring to the subseries of 3d stealth action games, as opposed to 2d "metal gear', including "metal gear: ghost babel", which released after "metal gear solid", and "metal gear acid", which is a card game, and "metal gear rising", which is a character action game

    but, "metal gear survive" is a stealth action game, but is not branded "metal gear solid", because it focuses more on cooperative survival-based stealth action as opposed to single player tactical espionage action

    Which is not a question the non-Solid metal gears really examine

    You could probably argue some way of interpreting it that way

    But like, mgs 1-V all have a structure where they each say, "THIS is the thing that makes people who they are," and then present a story that tests that hypothesis

    Rising doesn't really do that. It's more character-driven than idea-driven
