The Last of Us – Review

July 31, 2013 1 comment

I just finished playing The Last Of Us so I suppose I’d better write a quick review. This may be a little hastily put together because I originally had something else planned for today, but that’s been thrown out of the window into an incinerator because I just have to talk about this game.

Woman Gives Birth, Dave Thinks Of The Children

One news story that’s been woefully under-reported in the last week here in the UK was the highly important news that Prince William and Princess Katie have had a baby, so now we have a Prince George Alexander Louis Michael Quentin Charles Diana Betty Larry Curly Moe George The 3rd. Or something.

Only joking! The news wasn’t underreported at all, it was everywhere. Turn on a TV, royal baby. Load up the Internet, you got a pop-up informing you about the royal baby. Open a newspaper, a comical boxing glove on a spring leaps out and punches you square on the nose, the words “ROYAL BABY” emblazoned on the red leather.

Ferret vs. The Movies: Man Of Steel & World War Z

July 12, 2013 3 comments

I recently got the chance to experience an all-American drive-in movie theatre. I won’t be talking about this in this entry (since I have other plans to talk about that particular experience). Instead, I’ll just be talking about the movies I saw, since it was a double bill of Man Of Steel, the new Superman movie, and World War Z, starring Brad Pitt and based on the book by Max Brooks.

I mainly wanted to see WWZ due to how much I loved the book, but going in for MoS made life easier in terms of actually getting into the drive-in and parking somewhere decent. It’s pretty much the only way I’d have ever gone to see that movie since I find Superman boring.

Or Die Trying

It’s been about half an hour now and I still don’t know how to climb down a ladder.

You’d think it’d be the easiest thing in the world. I can figure out how to climb up a ladder, it’s going down that’s proving tricky.

Eventually I hop into a chasm. I didn’t mean to hop into a chasm; I meant to leap over it.

My girlfriend takes over. She figures out how to climb down a ladder. It involves pressing every button on the controller and walking backwards for years, while simultaneously praying that you’re properly lined up with the world and the game won’t glitch you into oblivion.

We are playing O.D.T., an old PlayStation game released by the now-defunct Psygnosis and developed by a company whose previous titles included Adidas Power Soccer. The perfect candidates to make an action-adventure, then.
