    I’m playing the Code Vein demo. NPCs are always one dimensional, but Code Vein goes a hilarious step further by using throwaway characters’ personalities as their first name on screen. So in this opening prison dungeon there’s a Skeptical Revenant you can talk to, but also an Aggressive Revenant, a Pessimistic Revenant, a Thirsty Revenant, and so on.

    Fusion suffers from the same metaphor issue that “magic” does in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Sometimes it was just a spell, then it became about lesbian sex and then it became about drugs. WHAT THE FUCK WAS IT WHEDON?!

    Fusion takes on serious meaning for some gems and not much for others, but then it muddies the waters. Like Pearl and Rose were obviously fucking, but (SU: Movie Spoiler)
    Steven and his dad?!

    Look some spells have a lesbian sex component

    and everyone knows magic drugs are better than other drugs.

    See but then with Willow it was like “oh, is she having sex with Rack? Is she addicted to sex? What is going on?” Until she got high and then we were like “well this metaphor is fucked”

    They really should have left it as just being magic. They could’ve hinted at her and Tara in other ways (and did) successfully.

    The real explanation is that Season 6 is mostly really bad.

    That's fairly common in JRPGs I feel?

    Thesis: Night in the Woods is the best Mario game and, unlike Mario Odyssey, is the true heir to the original 1981 Donkey Kong, as Donkey Kong is a game with a working class focus, and an unusually heavy (for its time) focus on narrative, characters, and relationships

    My understanding is that since cocaine is a topical numbing agent, the best way to do cocaine is to cut your palm, put cocaine in the cut, and then light it on fire to increase the reaction rate and boost the effects. The numbing aspect guarantees you'll feel no pain!

    sonic 1 is good actually, but it's a totally different type of good than 2. 3 is bad.

    I think I actually like 1 most, at least to play. 2 is phenomenal by all means but I enjoy 1 more, it's more standard platformy.

    The Venn diagram of cops that has circles for problem drinker, steroid user and history of cocaine use would make you feel like you had blurred vision looking at it.

    It is because Kojima wanted Sutherland.
    "I wanted to make sure the actor who did the voice also acted out the facial expressions as well. Snake is now 49, and I was looking for someone who could realistically convey the feelings of this older, weathered Snake through both his facial expressions and his tone of voice. A friend of mine, producer Avi Arad, recommended Kiefer Sutherland, which made a lot of sense for us, so we approached him. ... The technology now allows acting to take center stage, so that's the direction we're taking."
    "As for the changing of the voice with the new technologies we are now able to express emotions not only by voice, but also with the expressiveness of the faces.The main theme this time is revenge, and so far the Snake emotions could not match the words, but now that emotions can be expressed also with the faces we needed a real actor, not just a voice actor. So we decided to use Mr. Sutherland."

    The fact that the amount of actual acting on the part of Sutherland in MGS5 was not much even including the boring mostly neutral expressions from Snake makes the reasoning kind of screwy.

    Like 90% of the Sutherland facial acting in MGS5 were probably in the opening and closing scenes.
