Time to Party Like You’re a Creepy Fantasy Fan!

I just found out that Hulu has the first 7 episodes of some show called “Legends of the Seeker” up. You know what that show is? It’s a TV version of Terry Goodkind’s awful “The Sword of Truth” series. Shit. My day just got 7 episodes busier. If you haven’t read them (don’t!), they’re typical creepy fantasy, full of weird woman-hating/exploiting S&M softcore porn/magic/fighting. It makes Robert Jordan look like a visionary.
Anyway, now that I can think clearly again, I need to talk to you about the Prince! I’m surprised more people aren’t blown away by this game. It seems to me that a lot of the criticims comes from two areas. One, the Prince’s voice and dialogue are annoying (and far more important to some people), not in keeping with the rest of the game’s tone. An interesting claim, and one that I feel is rather fallible, but onward. Number two, they don’t like that combat and gameplay don’t evolve past what is initially shown to you (despite the addition of the jump pads, which realy don’t change the game too much).
I really don’t understand either of these arguments, and I’ll post at length about number one, soon. Number two though… Didn’t we already discuss this? I mean, are we not content to play games that are fun and well made and consistently well-written (yes, well-written)? I haven’t loved a game this much in years. I’m depressed now that it’s done, I feel like I won’t be able to find anything to replace it. Ok, time to watch bad TV, but we’ll discuss Nathan Drake-Prince soon.
