I kinda hate MGSV too.

I haven't picked up MGSV in earnest for over a week. I really think I'm done with it. Maybe it's because I work 50 hours a week now. Maybe it's because my love life turned around (finally) or maybe it's because turning metal gear solid into an open world completely diluted what I personally liked about it most.

The physical freedom adds too much tedium to be worth it. Taking out enemy checkpoints nets you paltry experience and they re-staff to quickly to ever be worth it. I'm sick of scrounging for supplies, I'm tired of the exponential cost of staff upgrades. I want some goddamn story progression! It's been 20 hours and I've hit a single (creepily sexist) story beat.

They also clearly couldn't get Kiefer to sit in on most of the facial capture stuff because Snake has characters talk at him 8 times out of 10 while he just sorta stares at the ceiling. Completely stone faced. It gets really hard to watch.

I don't know, I'll get to the end eventually. I won't let myself buy Fallout 4 until I do. That oughta to light a fire under my ass.

Bloodborne: The Old Hunters Trailer!

Damn. Fine. Soundtrack. Hell, nothing in the main game is half as good as that trailer track. I want that and all of that horse demon goodness!

I don't wanna write about not wanting to write!

Thanks, patronus4000!

But then, they say, that's exactly when you should. The Movie/TV/Gaming front isn't piquing my interest of late. Sure, Colbert's back, and sure, he's amazing but why write what everyone else is writing about him?

Guuuuh. I can do this! Let's see... a court ruled in favor of the backers in a shady kickstarter campaign. That's pretty legally awesome, now those KS'ers will have to at least try to make their product first.

M. Night returned to form with The Visit, or did he? BMD says yes, Movie Bob says hellllllll no. After Lady in the Water that man isn't getting another penny out of me for less than 87% on rotten tomatoes. No less!

What makes you S.P.E.C.I.A.L.?

Tod Howard promised Fallout 4 would have little animated shorts explaining the game's relationship with the special system, but damn... I didn't expect a style parody this good:

This guy's code name is "Death Platypus"

Ya'll have a wonderful day now.

Isn't Pedro Pascal just the best?

Zap2it's got a great interview with my new favorite character actor Pedro Pascal. He's great in Narcos and he has Games of Throne's best death scene (two year old spoiler). My man crush is strong with this one and his story of getting into Javier Pena's character is worth your 2 minutes. Zap to it.

I'm not saying I'm great at MGSV.

This chick, ROCKS.

But I sure don't suck. Though I should stop trying to run through the front door every time. That's my problem, I'm dealing with it.
