ODIN NEVER ASKED FOR THIS

I apologize in advance for the lack of photos and a wall of text, I got a lot going on in my head, and I just can’t be bothered at the moment to find things that illustrate my angst towards this game. So I leave you with some suspicious breakfast cereal:

So…how suspicious we talkin’? Like, “unidentifiable fruit flavor” suspicious, or “the wheat was blended with a select choice of orphan blood” suspicious?

Ahhh, Deus Ex, how I love thee. Chop up my limbs and glue me to a particle accelerator, then inject my veins with tiny microscopic robots. My body is ready.

So I have finished the most recent extension to the Deux Ex universe: Mankind Divided. And, it was a good game. Which is my problem with it. Good game. Period. Not an excellent game. Or even a solid game.

ODIN STEALS BACK THE EMPIRE

Hunker down and grab a snack, kiddies. This one’s gonna be a long one. And I will be talking about a mature rated video game, so if you’re here from my beading and jewelry videos….well, you might want to skip this one. (I post more jewelry and nice things on Tuesdays on my YouTube channel…)

So over the winter break, I had the experience of playing this little gem right here:


 

Not shown – the grin plastered across my face stretching from ear to ear

ODIN IS A RIVETHEAD, AND RANTS WAY TOO MUCH

Now I know that my music tastes may be considered unappealing or even uncouth to a considerable chunk of my demographic, especially on the jewelry making side, but you guys read these posts to learn more about me as a person, right?

Regardless, I have a platform, and I’m damn well going to use it. Music is a very big part of who I am, and it has influenced me through out the majority of my life. It makes me feel…feelings. Things that I cannot express in words, which if you are familiar with my work, is a considerable feat. So this week I am going to ramble and rant about one of my strongest passions.

And if you find yourself intrigued, or even enjoying the experience, then good on you for opening up to trying new things. And if you don’t like it, that is awesome too! You still get props for trying something different.

ODIN REVIEWS CUTE NARWHALS

….or are they whales? IDFK.

So a while ago I did a favorites video featuring Squid and Pig/Platonic Games’ Sweet Sins: Kawaii Run that I played on my tablet (before it took a shit on itself.)

One of the features of this game was getting buffs from these adorable sea-like creatures called Miimos that helped you along your hell-bent journey.

Platonic games then released another addicting micro game featuring these adorable…things.

It’s so gd cute and it makes me feel….things.

ODIN REVIEWS POTATOES

That’s right, you fuckin heard me: Potatoes. Specifically: Potato Warriors. More Specifically: A weapons shop for Potato Warriors run by Potato Blacksmiths.

So what the fuck am I actually talking about? This:

Pretty fucking magical, right?

So you start off playing the lovable oaf who inherits the blacksmith shop from a dead grandpa. Or rather inherits the labor contract, because apparently, Uncle Moneybags (actually named Agent 46 in game) owns 99.99999999% of the profit. And you have to work off your grandfather’s debt too.

So it’s a Reality Simulator too!!

ODIN GETS NOSTALGIC

In case you didn’t already know, Odin likes video games. A lot. Odin also likes violent video games. A lot. So if you are not interested in that, you may want to read something else about puppies or whatever.

But if you want to read Odin gush and get all shiny eyed about a fantastic Cyberpunk game, cheers!

For starters, I am COMPLETELY OBSESSED with System Shock 2 from Looking Glass studios (let’s be honest, I am obsessed with pretty much EVERYTHING made by Looking Glass Studios) and years ago I had decided to track down the original game.

The first game was created in ’94, when my gaming addiction was blossoming. I managed to find a copy in a vintage gaming shop (bigass box, manual, and all), and have no regrets purchasing it even though I have no idea how I thought I would be able to get it working…

Much to my relief, Good Old Games carried the original System Shock, along with other delightful treats that I remembered myself being addicted to. (Wing Commander FTW, FreeSpace: you imagination fueling tart)

I loaded it up….and found the retro Doom-like controls to be a difficult obstacle for me.

ODIN IS VERY DISTURBED

WARNING: My sense of humor gets a bit dark in this one. If you’re easily offended, have ethical issues with hunting, etc, You probably don’t want to read this one. Feel free to skip this.

So there comes a time when you say to yourself “How the fuck did I get into this side of the internet?”

Odin is a Mature Adult

This rant may contain Spoilers for Stardew Valley from Concerned Ape and Chucklefish Games. Mind you, I haven’t gotten too far in the game, but if you want everything to be a surprise, you might not want to read this.

So I have been drawn into another game that I really don’t have time for. A few hours later, and I feel like someone really needs to take it away from me.

Like really, really needs to take it away:
