Trailer Park: Annihilation – If anything like the books, the first 1/3rd is great, the 2nd 1/3rd is incomprehensible and then I’ll walk out at the start of the 3rd 1/3rd

Anybody else read these books? Absolute shame the second book in the trilogy absolutely annihilated (lulz) all of the goodwill and interest the first book created. I bailed before book three and I don’t feel like I’m missing much. Wonder how the movie will pan out.

Destiny 2’s art makes me mad I’m not playing D2 RIGHT NOW

Remember that sweet post about Destiny 1 art (you should, as it’s the post RIGHT BEFORE THIS ONE). Well, guess what? As Destiny 2 follows Destiny 1, so does the D2 art post follow (take a peep at Kotaku’s massive dump here). At this point, I’ve only explored maybe 30% of the game but so far I can easily say the art and design surpasses the first one in almost all aspects. I can’t speak to the lore yet (let’s see if there’s an equivalent to the Hive Book of Sorrows aka one of the coolest things I’ve ever read associated with a video game) but I’ve high hopes.

I, too, can shamelessly rip off Kotaku

The Art of Destiny

I BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW THAT I LOVED THE FIRST DESTINY BUT I AM HERE TODAY TO TELL YOU THAT I DID AND IT SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE THAT I AM JUST AS INFATUATED WITH THE RECENTLY RELEASED SEQUEL. ONE OF THE ABSOLUTE BEST PARTS OF THE WHOLE FRANCHISE IS THE AMAZING LORE THAT SUPPORTS THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE. ONE OF THE OTHER BEST PARTS? THE AAAAARRRRTTTT BECAUSE IT IS AMAZER.

Kotaku has collected some of the best examples in this VERY expansive post – check it out! I also grabbed a bunch of examples and chucked ’em below the belt fold.

Dreams Come True – A Decade Too Late

MARVEL.

CAPCOM.

INFINITY GEMS (they aren’t Infinity stones, you hacks. Gems. They’re gems.)

Be still my black, black heart. Except…I’ve aged out of fighting games. I no longer have the patience nor the time to memorize combos and ultimate attacks for 30 characters at a clip. My muscle memory is shot! I mean, i’ll still give you a run for your $$$ if you want to break out Tekken (3 OR 5) or UFC Undisputed or Soul Caliber or WWE Here Comes the Pain or any SF2 iteration or World Heroes or Samurai Showdown…but I pretty much drew the line at MvC3 (or rather had the line drawn FOR me, as I  I would get absolutely butchered on the regular)

Now get off my lawn and leave me to my Witcher 3 wanderings. Get too close and I’ll run you through. *shakes canesword*
