Love 3 hour pods with my boy Austin!
There goes my hero!
Will download and have a look!
The answer is yes, you would love to play more Monster Hunter!
Everyone spotted the real DK at the docks but no one picked up on Rhys Millen on the plane. He's been on the stunt team for the past few FnF films and a pro driver in his own right. He's chatting with the film's technical director, Toshi Hayama.
Good luck at the new gig, Adam!
@xanavi: The act of invoking it is fine, but comparing his experience with theirs is a little absurd(...what he invoked in the wayhe didso...). I feel like that's a pretty reasonable thing to say.
Nothing you've said is unreasonable in my opinion, it's a personal thing. My feeling is that even if Jon isn't successful at it, even if he ends up with absurd or awkward allegories for the things he's trying to say I'm glad that at least someone is attempting it. And I'll always be willing to give games like that an honest try.
@xanavi: I read the article, and while I think that the interviewers interpretation is fine, it didn't affect my opinion of the ending that much, if at all. If what the interviewer described was Blow's intended meaning, I think he harms the overall message with what's revealed in the epilogue room. It may be the same concept(distancing oneself from everyone else in pursuit of knowledge[putting it simply]) as his own experience, and therefore only a difference of degree, but what a difference! Invoking...what he invoked in the way he did so paints him in a poor light.
I guess how you feel about his invoking the creation of the atomic bomb depends solely on your own experience. For me, fifty years is about far enough in the past for people to invoke it outside of purely academic necessity. Just consider that years from now all these big events in our immediate past will be short bullet points in some high school textbook.
@billyok: I was going for cheeky, rather than snarky. Sorry bout that. @mub conveys my thoughts on it pretty well, for the most part. To say that I think the big reveal in Braid feels like a stretch would be a bit of an understatement. It's pretentious, but in an adolescent sort of way, if that makes sense.
The thing is the end of Braid isn't even about a twist. You should read this article from The Atlantic, or at least skip down to the bottom where the writer gives Jon his own interpretation of the game. His games are actually deeply personal and not just some M. Night Shayamalan twist for twist's sake sort of thing.
