    Oh, XBone has an exclusive DMC5 demo? Guess it's time to check it out. V's play style looks... weird. Not very hands on besides the occasional cane slapping.

    Back to Gears of War on Insane. The floorboards part in Act 3 is stupid, and Dom can get in your way while not taking the hint to shove aside. I enjoy maneuvering him ever so slightly so that he breaks the floorboards and gets violated by the monsters below. I don't consider Uncharted a whack-a-mole series (as I recall, the AI will not readily pop up if you just leave the reticle at the spot where their head would next appear). But in Gears 1, you do get more of that sense. The focus here is slanted more towards shooting skill than tactical sense, where making your shots count is more of the battle than choosing your spots wisely. I rarely use melee too. Curb stomp seems like more of a novelty than anything you'd want to aim for consistently (aiming for the legs instead of the head). Chainsaw can be interrupted if shot.

    Decided to watch Upgrade on a whim. It plays many of standard AI and cyborg tropes straight, but it wasn't a bad way to spend 2 hours. The main character's robotic fighting style (complete with whirring sound effects) cracked me up the first time I saw it... played completely straight. Love how the camera rotates as he rises. A shame that the trailer censors the fatality.

    An interesting subject that I've thought a bit about. I would just emphasize that analysis can't be infinitely elastic. Some interpretations are more probable than others (ex. what George Orwell's work is about based on his stated views), and it's important not to overanalyze and try to find symbolism if there are no good reasons to believe it's there.

    For whatever reason, some people complain about the hitboxes in some of the Uncharted games, but I never had an issue with them. In Uncharted 1, pistol headshots are always a one-hit kill if you can deal with the enemy's slippery dodges, and you can reliably nick guys behind cover. Now, Gears 1 on the other hand, isn't as lenient with the ability to nick enemies ducking under cover. Turret enemies have extra shielding that they shouldn't have, even if your Lancer reticle is trained directly at their head. Grenade melee turning into a "grenade tag" is the sort of feature that would appeal to me, if not for the fact that movement is clunkier than Uncharted here and it's harder to find opportunities to sprint into close quarters safely--and also roll out of the way to avoid the explosion radius.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned often, but the torque bow is probably the most phallic projectile weapon I've used in a game (Shadows of the Damned had the Big Boner gun, but I haven't played that, and it's basically cheating). The weapon arc starts off flaccid unless you hold fire to make it fully erect, then your explosive rod can fully penetrate the target (in the face but crotch works too). Apparently these can be used to fill emergence holes too. I like how you can also shoot it at objects near the target and have the explosion take them out. Heard multi-piercing with one bolt is possible in the sequel. You seem to play many of the major releases as they come. Do you have time to finish them all?

    I've long known that I'm terrible at juggling games (along with my other hobbies), but I keep falling into the habit. And for some reason I've stumbled onto a particularly bad period. Let's look at the list of games...

    He forgot to yell Shinra Tensei.

    That moment when you realize you haven't gamed for weeks because your mind is elsewhere. Should probably do some catch up soon. Sam Harris vs. Jordan Peterson doesn't seem particularly fruitful, though it seems many are admitting that Kermit goes off on too many tangents and tries too hard to transmute ancient myths into something palatable (it feels like his own brand of theology but I don't think he'd admit that). Web serials aren't normally my thing, but I started reading a certain acclaimed one called Worm, which sounds like a dark version of MHA. So far, MC feels like a female Deku in the sense that she's a bullied MC who aspires to be a superhero, has an analytical mind, and makes detailed notes to serve her goal. Her notes are even ruined early in the story, just like Deku.

    When asked to describe my temperament, it seems a harder task for me than the norm. I think I come across as calm to some, but I'm not above regressing into a misanthrope and steaming about relatively minor issues for days, so I would be reluctant to describe myself as such.

    Those DMC5 spoilers are actually interesting. The Cerberus theme the uploader spliced into the footage might have helped. Edit:

    Heh. Someone went through my Give Me God of War no damage videos (and one Uncharted 3 Brutal Mode video) and just thumbed down everything. Did I incur the wrath of someone random because...gameplay? I mean, it would be nice if the person left some constructive criticism if they found my technique to be lacking (I know all too well where I can improve), but I doubt that was the reason why. Been busier than usual lately, but two more videos today. Write-up in the video description. Might have used rage on Svartal, but I didn't have enough to activate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fsi0qi5dJs
