We'll throw the world out the window

In reply to this interview mainly

Holy shit an FPS game has similar pacing to Half Life?!



Now I'm going to admit I haven't played Duke Nukem and that I probably never am going to play Duke Nukem (sorry I like to have some intelligence in my FPS games). But I call fucking bullshit on that comparison.

That's like saying I'm the exact same as my brother because we have the same number of bones in our skeletons.
Or saying that my computer tower and my printer are the same thing because they're heavy and made of plastic, metal, and electronics.
or that my best friend and I are the same because we are both girls.
or saying that shit and cooked ground beef are the same because they are lumps of brown mass.

Shit is still fucking shit. Of course the pacing and puzzles will be similar to Half Life Half Life is one of the biggest name FPS games and dozens of other FPS games have taken bits and pieces and entire fucking chunks from Half Life's chosen game design and pacing in the hopes that some magical secretion will rub off on their game because of it. And Duke Nukem is a FPS game.
This is like being shocked that a sci-fi show has Star Trek references.

And hey maybe the only thing that is happening is this:



And that's what could be generally what's happening. The thing is that in any film game or book the base isn't the fucking mechanics, it's the fucking story. If we're going to start comparing things based on their mechanics then I can say that Jonah Hex is the same quality of film as The Maltese Falcon

In all reality it is safe to say that NO THEY ARE FUCKING NOT. In fact I'm pretty sure that there are people out there that would have me strung up by my heels for even saying the two titles in the same sentence.

Are the games similar in mechanics? Yes, THEY'RE FUCKING FPS GAMES OF COURSE THEY GODDAMN ARE.

Are they similar the their base? NO. AND IF I REALLY NEED TO EXPLAIN THEN YOU NEED TO PULL YOU HEAD OUT YOUR ARSE FIRST.

Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox news confirms this:

“Can you hear me?”

“Yes.”

“What is you model ID?”

“My model ID is EL-214782.”

“Recite your initialization text.”

“Greetings. I am a 4th generation personal and business use EL200 android, manufactured by Shaw industries. I am part of the bodyguard class. I can protect your house, business, or you and your family; I know hundreds of combat techniques including hand-to-hand combat and weapons specialization; I am fluent 300 languages, including American Sign Language. I can also manage your appointments, do the cooking and cleaning, watch the kids, and am at your disposal as a sexual partner. I am equipped with a quantel-lithium battery that allows me to stay autonomous for 125 years and all of my vital internal workings are braced and protected by a virbranium-adamantium alloy. There is no need to feed or charge me and I require virtually no maintenance. Would you like to give a name?”

“Uh, sure. Your name is… Erik.”

There is something faint in the android’s eyes, almost happy, “My name is Erik.”

This has been a short preview for a cherik au I am working on. The opening sequence in this fic is strongly inspired by the short “Kara” by Quantic Dream that made circuits around Tumblr a short while ago. I’ve literally only just started the story so it will be a while before I have it posted anywhere.
