Appletizer

Ouch!

Ouch!

Welcome to 2013!

This post isn’t based on any actual conversation or act of bullying. It’s just what my head kept telling me over and over again. I must say, to my defense that all of my apple prejudices were confirmed. I still wouldn’t buy anything apple, ever.

I know there’s been some annoyance over that last comic, how it didn’t have a punch-line or any context. It was an experiment at making a longer story arc. But that’ll have to wait. Next weeks comic will be another one like unto today.

It’s been a great big christmas season, with loads of must. And How I met your mother. Now this is an interesting show. I used to hate it until I sat down and watched the episodes in order. And it’s magnificent. The way that things occur simultaneously in serveral layers just blows my mind. Whenever you think to yourself “Why did they do that?” You get an elaborate explanation in another episode. And the characters are likeable, or in Barneys case, unlikeable as any character ever written. Especially Marshall. Also the show uses laugh-tracks in a subtle way which just makes me hate BBT more. BBT, on a side note, has only got bad sex jokes, autistic jokes, pop references and laugh-tracks that make you laugh even though you really don’t think the joke deserves it. Back on topic. The holidays has seen me watch about half a season a day of HIMYM. I really hope that we get more seasons on Netflix here in Sweden soon. They’ve only put up 5 seasons so far 😦

Upon hearing about Spec Ops:The Line I just had to see it for myself. I picked it up on the steam sale and played through the short (5 hour) campaign. I was excited for the possibility that this would be the game that touched on how bad war is for everyone involved. I was kind of dissappointed that it played like any other 3ps out there, with you massacring hundreds of soldiers. It did throw that back in your face later, but the story was easy to run past even though some sequences really touched you in a “What the hell have I done?” kind of way. So ultimately, it’s probably the heaviest story in a shooter to date, I just can’t seem to feel it.

Well, that’s it from me.
Cheers!
