Can you believe how long it took me to find a safe looking bunnygirl picture to post here?
So let me get one thing out of the way. I'll try to tip toe around the bushes here in an effort to be tactful. Hell, I'll quote one of Gobun's tweets so I can say I didn't say it but talking to my girlfriend earlier and talking about certain things. Man, I miss her.
So yeah, refer to Gobun's tweet for additional context. You should follow him too. I don't understand a lick of what he says on twitter and I'm not sure I fit his target audience but damn if his content isn't hilarious to me.
If you're reading this babe, I couldn't help it. But what I wouldn't give to see you in one of those.
Meanwhile, after months of people praising it and talking about how it didn't reach sales expectations, I managed to rent Tomb Raider and man Mitch Dyer was not kidding about the first hour. Mostly watching Lara realize just how deep shit she's in, watching said shit hit the fan, and more silent realizations of how fucked she is plus a lot of wolves. Oh man the wolves. It's like a furry convention if somebody got drunk and decided involving actual wild animals was a good idea.
But through it all, I played an awesome action game with just great controls. The kind of controls you'd take for granted in such a rough island. Lara just moves how I want her to all the time. Her jumps at times feel unbelievable but at the same time, majestic.
The shooting also feels good too. I'm sorry, shooting a bow feels good. That feeling you get from pulling the drawstring all the way for a fully charged shot right in some unsuspecting doof's head. Or shooting a quick volley as you move down a hallway asking for all the henchmen to head for their doom towards you.
I'm also glad I rented it. I have a feeling it's a great trip once through and it'd probably be great on more playthroughs but I'd probably just put it down after I beat it with just a passable multiplayer experience.
What I'm really excited for is Splinter Cell Blacklist, especially the Spies Vs. Mercs mode. I never got a chance to try it back with Chaos Theory and I really want to try the newly modernized Spies Vs. Mercs. I love me some assymetrical gameplay and feel like I'll play the shit out of that mode. Oh, and Splinter Cell's newly reborn campaign gameplay style. Panther all the way!
