I fashioned a kitty toy using a floating birthday balloon. I have much genius. *Snort, snort, snort* Here is an action shot of Mizzy enjoying her new prey, and yes, my bewbs are that luscious. Also, that is yellow yarn that I tied to the balloon, not a beam of magic that I’m using from my mind to make it move.
So far, Octodad is adorable as hell, but it’s very complicated. You have to move each of his legs and arms individually with different buttons on the controller, which is basically what the game is about…him trying to do normal human things like mow the lawn, make coffee, etc…but with his limbs not wanting to act like human limbs and instead knocking everything over and wreaking havoc!
It makes for lots of humor and I think that outweighs the frustration so far, because you can’t rightly be upset about difficult controls when the point of the game is that your character is having trouble controlling his limbs. The failure is very amusing, like when I beat his daughter to death with a side table that the suction arm stuck to before I figured out how to make him drop something I didn’t mean for him to pick up. I was trying to hand her a glass of milk, and then I got frustrated and beat her to death instead. After that I maliciously beat his wife to death with the coffee pot, though I did manage not to destroy her flower bed when mowing the lawn!
I haven’t played enough to rate it just yet, but I’d say so far I am having a good time laughing with Master Betty, my hubby, at how shockingly difficult it is for me to pick up a simple object and the anarchy that comes of it when I destroy the house…and the yard…and the grocery store. In fact it’s not far off from the control I have over my own limbs in real life! ajfe;af ;eaxkf;laxn k;awaxio;angi;anrk
SPEAR SPEAR SPEAR!!! GORE!!!!
You like that? I’m trying it out as my new closing line. It’s been met with hesitant acceptance so far.
We exit the building with our movie in hand: The Hobbit!
Master Betty accidentally drops the DVD immediately.
Starling runs over to it, picking it up and dusting it off.
Starling: “It’s dirty now!” Her voice drops to a tormented, icy, bitter tone, and she spits out, “It’s filthy! Filthy Hobbitsez!”
Master Betty: *sigh* “Stop squatting on the ground. People are staring. Give it to-“
Starling: “No! Mine! My precious!” *Runs across oncoming traffic to car* “Smeagol knows the way!”
A guard on Starling’s game: “Stop! You have committed crimes against Skyrim and her people!”
Starling: “No shit. I just killed the Emperor’s cousin at her own wedding. I’m killing him next. Down with the man!”
Guard: “What say you in your defense?: A: You caught me, I’ll go to jail and pay my bounty. B: I’d rather die than go to jail!”
Master Betty (Starling’s husband): “Well, the barracks are right there. 20 guards will be on you before you know what happens. It auto saved five seconds ago before you traveled to that town. Just start from there and avoid the town.”
Starling: “But they have a necklace at this store I want! I can’t get it anywhere else!”
Master Betty: “Do you need it?”
Starling: “No….but I want to shop-”
Master Betty: “I’ll be right back. I need another Big Red.”
*He walks back in after making himself some lunch*
Master Betty: *gawks at Starling’s character now inside the store and standing on top of 20 or more dead guard bodies.*
Starling: *Ignores store keeper yelling about how awful the carnage is and starts looting the dead bodies and then attempts to sell all the guards’ armor to her*
Shop Keeper: “…what happened here!?!…Yes?…How can I help you? Oh, I have a little bit of this, a little bit of that. Take a look!”
Master Betty: “She’ll take your money. That means you killed all the guards and every witness and then hid until she stopped screaming.”
Starling: “I said I wanted to shop.” *Exits building and steps over the two bodies of the guards that started the whole thing.
Cicero (My player’s companion that helps do stuff): *In a high pitched, excited voice* “Let’s kill someone!!!”
Starling: “Oh my gosh, Cicero! Has your blood lust no end?!”
Yeah, I’m pretty tough. *Flex* No! Don’t comment on how I must have no life to level grind and do random missions until I can do that without cheats or anything when I haven’t even completed the main mission or any faction quests other than the Dark Brotherhood! Over 100 hours in and I still have so much to do! Yippie!
Really, though…It was actually pretty hard to kill them all. I’d stocked up on healing potions and invisibility potions and then I found a narrow place so that they had to fight me one at a time. I felt proud, though, so I had to play it off like it was no thang when Master Betty came back in the room.
