    • Video Game Characters. SPOILERS!!!

      8 years ago

      leighx3

      Well I just completed Halo Reach on Legendary ( pain in the ass). Its a hell of a lot harder than Halo 3 and Halo ODST. And I just have one thing to ask about characters in video games. If one is a hero is it his or her duty to die in glorious combat. I noticed a growing trend in Video games that are being released. Hey lets make bad-ass looking characters and kill them off as the story progress'.

      It started well years ago. But I'll give you a more recent one from memory. Bioshock, if one is to receive the good ending, it would show your main character dying. But his death is depicted as normal, no death in combat. Its just natural with his adoptive daughters holding his hand as he passes on. Well it was a tear jerkier if you had played the game as vigorously as I have. And that's ending for a base character, there was almost no attachment to this character because his face is rarely seen.

      And now lets fast forward to November 2009. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is released after months prior tantalizing us with pre-release images of the mysterious bunch of characters in the games single player. We are shown or rather hearing the main antagonist Vladimir Makarov. He sound's absolutely bland for my taste. Anyway more characters are shown, and one that catches the most eyes is a man wearing a skull mask, with shades. Everyone is instantly enamored by this characters appearance. Come a few weeks after game release, I start playing campaign, I myself get re acquainted with good old Soap Mactavish ( who's faith at the end of the Call of Duty 4 is left ambiguous.) and his equally skilled sharp shooting apprentice Roach Sanderson. And lastly I meet the already Infamous Ghost. Not quite as I expected by still a decent 2nd in command to Mactavish. As I progress swiftly through the campaign I get a mission called Loose Ends that will forever be a bad taste in my mouth for saying its name from now on. As you start you do the standard killing Mercenary's in a mansion. And hacking an erroneously long computer terminal. You come to the conclusion of this mission, your PC is injured by a mortar strike. Well this nothing I say, because during the course of the campaign your Player Character has survived hell. ( that's how he gets the nickname Roach). I am being dragged along the dusty path by good old Ghost. Just as we reach extraction, we are met with commander and chief of your team. General Shepard, he says fine job boys. And he pulls out a .44 Anaconda Revolver and shoots your character in the heart. Ghost shocked tries to retaliate only to be shot several times by the same gun. If that wasn't bad enough, my character on his last thoughts gets dosed in gasoline and lit on fire.

      I am thinking the game is over. I mean I was in shock myself, I just saw my two favorite characters murdered. I am furious. And now let us fast forward a little more to Bioshock 2 the long anticipated sequel to the first work of art. I am enjoying playing as the new protagonist Subject Delta. Heir Delta is one of the first big daddies ever made. And I am enjoying the adoption of little sisters to increase my Adam yield. And liberating them from dream like hell. Its nearing the conclusion of the game. I have just decimated a small army of splicers single handily thanks to the upgrading system in the game. I watching the end scene it shows Delta finally reunited with his Little Sister Eleanor Lamb. Who has helped a lot in the quest of saving a dead city and Delta's life. But as Father and Daughter run to the escape sub. Kaboom, Delta is sent flying to the depths, but quick thinking on his part, he grabs the handle of the sub. As the sub ascend to the surface, I notice something Delta is Critically wounded. He bleeds, he suffers, he cries out in pain. His last images are seeing his daughter doing the right the thing and saving her real mother. As the reach the surface, Delta is dying due the wounds inflicted by the bombs. He hears a heartfelt speech before his candle dims completely. Eleanor is extracts a vial of blood. I am again hit hard. It wasn't really a happy ending for Delta, all the trials and tribulations only to die, before he sees his quest at its true end. I am again pretty enraged at this.

      Why, Why, Why do awesome characters have to die. All the time its a very common theme now in every medium. Books, manga, television, anime. I mean what the fuck. Is their a cardinal rule stating the characters who have great designs must die. So the mediocre characters can have their moment in the spot. Is it peoples pleasure to see a hero fail, die trying? The video game is making protagonist drop like flies. Like I mentioned earlier I beat Halo Reach. And you know what I got after months of looking at this awesome team of super soldiers, I get self sacrificial, cheap death, glory, cowardice. All the main characters minus one are dead. I mean seriously even character that looked the meanest and coolest, dies. I am referring to Emile. The bad-ass looking spartan. And your player character dies as well. After long customization involved in making him/her just right, is brutally slaughtered by a group of Elites. And don't get me started on Elites. Brutes are easier to combat in Reach. And Hunters are just like boss fights.

      I will now act like a game director.
      GD: Hey consumer/reader/Gamer. Like this character
      You: well yeah he looks pretty cool
      GD: Shoots character in head.
      You: holy crap
      GD: Like this guy
      You: well yeah I guess
      GD: blows brains out again
      You: oh my god. Whats the matter with you.
      GD: How about this one (points gun at temple)
      You: (hesitant) No I. I. hate that guy
      GD: (shoots anyway)
      You: oh come on.
      GD: Couldn't take the chance of you starting to grow attached. Here have this shitty looking character instead.

      And that in a comical nutshell is how every video game is being made now. If your still reading enjoy the tunes.

    • Hello, time for some news and reviews.

      9 years ago

      leighx3

      I know its been a long time since I put up a journal; but this one is reminder to all friends, and also an update. Its my birthday today, I am 21 years old today. My parents got me a cellphone. Its a basic but its probably the first and only cell I have ever owned. So its sweet. I'm going to start work soon. Well next week hunting for a job. I got some bad news to go with the good news. We recently got a new Puppy, but very sadly his no longer with us. He ingested something toxic. ( unaware of what caused it, because I'm not an M.E.) So he passed away. I'm guessing somebody feed him accidentally. So may he rest in Peace.

      So anyway, I played the BETA for Halo: Reach. And I love two things about it, the assassinations, and the new Auto Magnum, and the new Invasion Mode. I have a few complaints however. The new counter melee system is ridiculous, and it makes one of halo's signature weapons the energy sword quite useless in a head to head fight. Because an opponent can just hit his melee button and block the sword with his ARM. WTF man. So thats one of my complaints, the second is Vehicle weakness. I honestly in one Invasion match killed a Scorpion with a single Plasma grenade to the cockpit. The whole thing blew up. And my last complaint armor parts are a bit to pricey. I spent my whole two match credits on one shoulder pad. Other than that can't wait till it comes out this fall.

      I recently, well more or less last month and a half ago. I saw three films, Kickass, Iron Man 2 and lastly Shrek Forever after in 3D. Here is my quick review of all there. Kickass, for all intents and purposes lives up to its name, but not the main protagonist, for whom the film and graphic novel get their name from. The real stars are Hit-Girl and Big Daddy. So overall 7/10.

      Iron Man 2, better than the first one by alot. It actually shows what Tony Stark is actually like, a reclusive, alcoholic. And they introduced my favorite character War machine, Although the actor has changed its still good likeness. And the action scenes were all good. And so was the main villain(s). So overall 9/10.

      Lastly Shrek Forever after. It was in 3D ( oh joy). I personally don't like 3D movies. They give me headaches. Well the movie was good. It just feels to rushed. And its has the same story telling as the first 3. So nothing too new, other than some cool funny characters. I liked how it was a different timeline. So all the original characters other than Shrek. I liked the Puss in Boots. The villian didn't really leave an impression on me. He was just a annoying little prick. So I give the movie overall 7.5/10. Just for not changing the formula much.

      lol yeah, now lets hope we can get a new Omnicon to get rid of viruses haha

    • gosimmons

      I wanna try the new Bioshock. All the new powers were amazing. But it wasn't really selling me on the Frankenstein like creature. The Winged Creature looked like a fun combatant. The weapons seem to few as well. You got a melee weapon, and a shotgun, an actual sniper rifle. But this takes place during 1867 so what I am to expect in the handgun department. I am getting sick of six shooters.


      Yeah I'm sure that what we've seen won't be all we can do, so they'll hopefully have some new unique weapon/power ideas in the full game. At least the first Bioshock managed to have a pretty good weapon selection for a historic setting. Shame it'll be a while till Infinite's released though.

      I never liked the bastard. But the pic makes look half decent.

      Still more likeable than Izumi. lol

      Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you in a long while. As you could tell from the journal, things have been hectic for quite a while now.

      Yeah, Nier ended up not being too good. Which is a shame, because it started off really strong. Mostly what did it in was that it took place in such a small, confined world and the story wound up being way too bizare and not explained well enough.

      Hey thanks for the immage comment and haha yeah Subject Delta is awesome =D he is badass really powerful and a kind sweet guy deep down. I love Ealanor Lamb and she is one of my fav Fem characters ever in a video game =P and i liked Bioshock 2 alot. It had a pretty plain streight foward storlyine and yet they put so much effort and detail into it that they made it really touching and alot better than the first one. It's hard to tell which ending is more touching though but i think the first game's ending is more touching because the second one's ending can be really confusing when they start going into detail about that soul bond and stuff... that made me like: ><...what?... i mean i understood it but it was very confusing. The second game also has a really sad ending that amkes me =,(

      and glad you also like Kick Ass, that's a great movie and i like that movie alot and i like Hit Girl alot =) Hit Girl is Sooo badass and awesome. She is like Trinity but as a child and Alot better. I want to buy this movie but edit out the first part of the movie where the kid is going all in depth with all this disturbing sexual stuff that has nothing to do with the rest of the movie and...euhhhhh.... rest of the movie is awesome and i love rest of the movie but i hate that beginning part which is just Soooooo random and disturbing ><

    • noob55

      Hey thank you for the comments =) and i agree with you, he was a great character, an amazing character and one of the only good Star Wars characters but too bad they killed him =(

      Haha, I normally headshot them with the rivet gun and I love it when it's fully upgraded. It's hard to do with auto-aim off though which I've had it off since the first time I played. XD

    • Dr_Eggman

      9 years ago

      Yeah, I'm more of a defensive player in Bioshock 2 due to all the fast annoyances in it.

    • Dr_Eggman

      9 years ago

      Haha, I normally freeze them in the beginning levels and then drill or melee the hell out of them. Then the later levels I make traps for them.

    • Dr_Eggman

      9 years ago

      I know right, I played on Hard with no Vita-Chambers the first play-through and they were a bitch until the later levels. I just trapped the hell out of the rooms or lured them into turrets and security and then spammed them. XD

      god old Venom looked badass....

    • RunninMan

      9 years ago

      I do like Brock Venom, but Gargan Venom was a better villain (as they hadn't really been stressing Brock's Lethal Protector thing). But Eddie did try to protect people. By letting Gargan have a barely controlled suit, he putting people in danger in my eyes. And I do like that they actually changed something with him, I just don't like what they did with him....

    • RunninMan

      9 years ago

      Ya.....dun like anti venom either..... If he were a real hero, he'd take the suit back from gargan...

    • RunninMan

      9 years ago

      But they've done jack with Eddie Brock as of late. And I'm not really reading Spidey after the One More Day bullshit.

    • RunninMan

      I actually like Mac Gargan as Venom.....

      In answer to the comment you posted on SGT Snowman's ODST picture of Romeo, you do in fact play as every ODST member in your squad, just that most of the game consists primarily of the Rookie.

      In relpy to Immage comment:
      He was suppose to come in at the end of Hellboy 2. In the book they had him come in the end to show a possibility for a third and that if they make a third, it will be like the first. It really annoyed me that the movie didnt do this. I loved the first but didnt like the second much

    • noob55

      9 years ago

      Europe is very nice, ^-^ ive been to France and Ireland
      I wouldnt recommend moveing to France unless you plan on not driveing...umm well... the country has beautiful architechture but its dangerous in that... well in my opinon Paris is the most dangerous city in the world driver wise, every one there drives very risky and dangerousaly and its very likely to get so much accidents.
      Ireland is very nice, i imagine Germany is pretty nice. Spain is a really good country but i dont support their bull fighting ideas

    • noob55

      9 years ago

      haha lol i hate America with a passion for alot of reasons but ehh... my ideal places i want to live are either: virginia Beach, North Carolina beaches or Canada heh
      i hate America for the reasons i mentioned before so thus i take what you said as a compliment, thank you ^-^ hehe. I love to travel alot and i love to learna bout other cultures and other countries....whenever i see those people that are like: "USA! USA! USA!" while in another country...i am just like.."...eerrrghhh...somebody give me a shot gun and ill dispose of the horrid monster".... haha actually i havent had much cases of that but you get my point lol. Yeah i have like no patriotism as do some of my friends on here lol

    • noob55

      9 years ago

      Oh yeah all the white people in that film were definitly American, with the whole corruption and greed and wanting to control everything...Fuacking America... yes i do live in America and i also know at the ame time that America is extrememly corrupted, hot headed, and the country acts like they own everyone.
      My dad once asked me: "Why dont you have any American Patriotism? Dont you support our troops?"
      and id be like: "No honetly i have no support for this country at all. There is no bad side during a war. I can see the reason for America fighting in the war right now and i think the people were fighting against have just as good of a reason to fight as we do since they are fighting for their homeland."

      The one war i absoutely despise...well.. there was absolutely no point to it was: the Vietnam War. I support both sidess during that war but the Vietnamese had a Much Much more huge reason to fight during that war and America had a extremely idiotic cowardly reason to get involved in that war. I do support our troops that fought in that war as i support our current troops. I dont support the stupid and corrupt leaders we had during that war or any war, i dont think this country has ever had a good leader since Abraham Lincoln...maybe one of the presidents during WWII, he was alright

      Also to add on to what i said above: "No i do not get support for America when it decides to blow apart some weaker and minor country. Im not like that and i will never be like that. I think its horrible that America acts like it has the right to be the world police and control everything"
      Im not some stupid white hick thats like: "WOOO FUACK YEAH AMAERICA!! ALRIGHT WE JUST KICKED FRANCE'S ASS!! WE ROCK!! FUACK YEAH I LIKE HOTDOGS AND FOOTBALL!!!!"

      Sorry i went on kinda a huge rant heh...
