The Walking Dead, S2 E4: Post-Op

clementineeyeE4 copy 2Hey, at least I didn’t go for “Postmortem.” (Ok, ok. I’m saving that for the next episode.)

RECAP

Clementine and Rebecca find Jane, BAMF-extraordinaire, in the zombie horde and waddle to safety. On the walk over to camp, Rebecca shoves her foot into her mouth yet again by telling the super-survivor she doesn’t give a shit about her dead sister. Then she acts surprised when Jane storms off. I’m not entirely sure what Rebecca thought was going to happen.

Also, it’s pretty obvious at this point she’s having contractions.

Back at camp, Magic Mike is freaking out about where everyone is while dour Bonnie farts around. Kenny is, depending on whether you tried to chop Sarita’s hand off or not, sitting at the side of the fountain with her lying on his lap, or sitting at the side of the fountain alone. Either way he’s a total dick.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Episode 3: Carver’s a Dick

clementineeye1croppedUPDATE: I am aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive. It seemed fitting to say that in this post. Sorry for the delay, I just picked up a full-time job (woo!) and after my computer recovered from DEFCON 1, Photoshop stopped working. But it’s back and I’m back and we’ve got some interesting stuff coming down the pipeline.

So the plan is 1 post per week, given the new job/time it takes to make the pictures. Let’s get cracking!

Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Episode 3: Carver’s a Dick

One of my more vulgar titles, but it seems fitting. God, what an asshole. I’d say the guy needs to take some Ambien, but he probably needs Novocain and the grace of God now, considering the epic beat-down Kenny gave him. I’m not pleased about that or anything.

Ok. This game is destroying my internal moral code.

I Shot the Sheriff, But I Didn’t Shoot the Clicker: Military in The Last of Us

Major spoilers for The Last of US. Didn’t watch/play? DON’T READ!

Discussion of spoilers in World War Z, Half-Life and Half-Life 2, but I’ll warn you beforehand.

Hi all, I’m working on a piece about the DLC now, but in the meantime, I thought this would set up most future blog posts about The Last of Us/it’s DLC. No worries if you haven’t seen the DLC yet, there is no information in here that isn’t told to you in the main game.

One of the things I noticed in my re-watch of The Last of Us is how quick TPTB/military turns against its citizens. The catalyst for the entire game is the death of Joel’s daughter. She isn’t killed by an Infected or by accident, she doesn’t even get popped off at the hands of some trigger-happy survivor – she is shot by a soldier.

That struck me as pretty… intentional. It’s the first days of the outbreak, before the government even really has time to get its shit together and suddenly they are ordering this man to kill a little girl and her father.

So I started looking at military presence in the rest of the game, which led me to look at every other large organization.

Now it’s a common theme in post-apocalyptic fiction that TPTB cannot/will not save you. In fact, one of the most common antagonists in post-apocalyptic fiction is the government. Continue reading
