I laughed when you said you felt bad for Luigi. Anyway, keep your head up! You aren't the only one struggling to find a job and you never know when your novel could take off and be a success. Who knows what's going to happen in life? I guess that is the scary part but also the really amazing part.

I think the level design in AC 4 is just straight up better than in AC 3. There are less guards on roofs, way more bushes to hide in and they are very generous with how easily you can use the dart gun to get guards out of your way. RIP Paul Walker
I completely agree. I still enjoyed the game because I love Batman, The Joker, and I grew up watching the animated series, but this game was definitely a marketing lie. Everything that made it sound potentially great, Black Mask being the main villain, having 8 assassin's hunt Batman with most of them being villains I had never heard of before, with it all set on Christmas Eve, ended up being just minor points about the game. They set it on Christmas because they had the assets from City and needed to make up a reason for the world looking exactly the same. Then the majority of the assassins turn into mini boss fights and side stories. Not to mention thier time line is completely terrible. They say Batman has been around for 2 years but somehow during all that time he had never fought any of these assassin's, never faced the Joker, and most of the common thugs and police force don't believe in him? They should have said he was only Batman for 6 months.
I'm not really sure what you consider "gangsta rap." If you're just talking about songs that "go hard", so to speak, then no, it most certainly is not dead.
Killer Mike R.A.P. Music is an amazing album.
And I'm not sure how to classify certain types of rappers/ rap music, but there are totally still plenty of good rappers out there, most of them just not on the radio. Deltron just released event 2, Astronautilis is an amazing rapper who doesn't get the attention he deserves, Killer Mike is still great, Kendrik Lamar's good kid mad city is an amazing album, and pretty much anything by The Roots is always great.
Though I still have a ways to go in GTA, I did play the torture scene. it is a tricky thing and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I think that part was pretty disturbing and I did not enjoy playing it at all. At the same time I don't think it is fair to complain about it or to call it out as "going to far" since all of GTA is about murdering people and doing countless horrible things. Torture is definitely going above and beyond what we are used to doing in video games so I can see that's why it shocked so many people, but there is plenty of torture in movies and literature and like I said, mass murdering people is just as bad if not worse.
I have shadow of the colossus on my ps3 but never finished it. I think I defeated maybe 6 or 7 of the colossus. I love listening to the music on the ps3 dashboard though.
