The (Funky) Chicken Heart That Ate New York

I don't normally post about my personal life on here, for assorted reasons. However, I am going to be moving to New York very soon, and I thought maybe some Duders might know about what are some good places to check out while I'm there. I'll be staying with people who know the city, and I've visited a couple times before, so I won't be completely lost or anything, but I'm open to anything you guys think might not be that well known, or whatever general suggestions you might have. The weirder the better! Just no sex dungeons, please. Unless.... no. Definitely not.

Hard To Even Find The Words

As far as actual game stuff goes, I've played through the Citadel DLC for Mass Effect 3. I don't have much to say about it that hasn't already been said, I think, but it certainly is the weirdest kind of pandering I've ever seen. Injecting this much stupid humor into places it doesn't usually occur makes for some strange vibes. For a game that's spent half its time being bizarrely gung-ho pro-military melodrama, to do a complete about face and act like fan fic of a Joss Whedon show doesn't make any sense, but it ends up working in spite of itself. A lot of the jokes aren't even that funny, but they're so goddam silly about it that you kind of have to just accept what's going on and enjoy it anyway.

Knowing that this might have been the last thing Zaeed's voice actor Robin Sachs ever worked on does make his scenes that much weirder, though.

The Chillest of Music, for Your Enjoyment

At first glance, Dustforce doesn't look like my kind of game, but the soundtrack is so fucking amazing I might have to check it out anyway. I don't know what the name is for this type of music - is this what chiptunes is? - but I want more of it.

Are you taking "the Funky Bunch" with you?

If you are going anywhere near Binghamton, stop by Lupo's and get some Speidies. Seriously that shit is some good food.

this is my first exposure to the soundtrack (despite owning the game...my steam backlog shame continues it would seem)- but this seems very similar to the stuff i've heard by gladkill. he'll throw an odd wub in there from time to time...but they're not overbearing or in poor taste, and often they sound more like glitch-edits. have a listen to couple that i'm into.

Don't react to anything you see on the subway. It's the New Yorker way.

This is very true.

@markwahlberg: Stay out of the other boroughs. Stay in Manhattan. Now give me a picture of you so I can stare at you like a crazy person if I ever see you and scream "GIANT BOMB! RUNNN!"

Except for when people get pushed onto the tracks?

No, I mean ignore people INSIDE the train. When waiting for the train just stay back and watch your back! (Avoid the minorities) (JK)

That's obviously not you. Your avatar shows Barack! Therefore you're a liar and probably will push people into tracks. Callin da popo
