In Other News– Weekend Edition, 10 May 2013

The biggest local news that’s happened this week, evidenced by my Twitter stream, is all about Burger King opening in South Africa. It’s not the fact that they’re here, but more the fact that like other multinational chains like KFC and McDonalds they won’t be serving any of that delicious cured porcine flesh, bacon. This, apparently, is an assault on everything good in the world. what do you think? Is the lack of bacon on your whopper a deal breaker?

In Other News: Crap still sells, smash things with your droid, the Chinese will copy just about everything, shadow Warrior gets the reboot treatment and a bunch dudes rap about cheap games. Also, remember it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday – so do try to not forget about your old mum.

    BIOSHOCK INFINITE
    IF ONE IS A TRUE GAMER!! One would know what the undertones are of the game they are playing. You can not say that often, this is not COD, this is a piece of FUCKING ART!!. So stop bitching gamers and love the shit that people put half a decade of their life into to give you an interactive canvass to play on………………….

    JUST FUCKING GO OUT AND BUY THE GAME ALREADY and stop bitching about the fact that you bought a game based on its cover. DO RESEARCH MAN!!!!!!!!

    JUST LISTEN AND FIND OUT THE REAL UNDERTONES. Instead of snap shooting with Private Fucking SOAP.

    It took me a day of research to find out one of the many little undertones that is in The most fucking interactive piece of art that I have ever played.

      it is a good game, no doubt…I’m a sketch artist so I can appreciate the artwork involved…If you in to the whole fantasy land thing, it’s certainly a good ride,,,However, shooting crow attacks and taking roller coaster rides around doesn’t really appeal to my tastes…Lost interest rather quick…

        I thought that same at first however I was pleased to find the dumb ass FPS gameplay was more enjoyable played on EASY mode. Then I just wen along for the ride and started enjoying mixing up combos with the Vigor like using the Horse to elevate the dudes before shooting them out of the sky with my kick ass shotgun.

        I loved the Hand Canon. Anyway, after brainlessly blasting away on EASY mode (that was also quite hard because it takes a while to attune to the frantic pace of the battles) I was then greeted with the BEST ending EVER!!

        For such a dumb FPS (ALL FPSs are dumb) it has the most thought out Narrative ever.

        Good Times.

          I reckon I’ll follow suit…Perhaps a quick blast through for the story’s sake…I have heard the ending is quite epic in terms of the plot twists…

            It will grow on you, if not for that grin on your face every time you forget that your partner is actually nothing more than AI. You will have to remind yourself time and again that Elizabeth is not real.

            Dam they did a good job on her.
