this is my blog. its a lovely place and you are welcome here! psshh I just said a magic word on you. you're okay to be here for a few times now, but look out for grondlers!

 

So I had some fun with Mortal Kombat 9, and I figured I would try out Injustice, the DC superhero fighting game by the same studio, since it’s free this weekend on Steam

basic verdict: silly game, wayyyy too washed out visually

like, mortal kombat, a game about the consumption of all that we hold dear by blood-soaked eldritch gods, is about five times brighter than this game, which is about superman and batman fighting. 

it really feels like they can’t own the source material and just admit that superheroes are fun, silly colourful creatures who shouldn’t be grunting grimly as they smack each other’s chops in a dishwater palette. superman’s costume is, like, off-grey body with a burgundy cape. it’s like they redesigned every character in the DC universe to look like Arkham Asylum-era Batman!

that all said, it’s pretty silly fun popping fools as Harley Quinn. she does look like she’s dressed for some kind of goth funeral, but the essential jollity of the character shines through which is real nice. 

final verdict: this game is 18 gigabytes jeez louise downloading it took forever

The Seventh Doctor! Most people think of him as a shadowy schemer who plays games with the lives of those around him in service of some grand agenda. I think these people are very silly and, in an unrelated note, here’s a picture of him climbing down Sabalom Glitz so that his hat falls off.

McCoy’s years certainly have their misses, but for my money, the highest hits are not your Battlefields or your Curse of Fenrics, but the ones like this, that take McCoy’s natural talent for comedy and let it breathe in the material. They’re light, funny, ridiculous, enthusiastic, and often cleverer than the more self-consciously ‘adult’ material that comes later. 

More gifs from Dragonfire coming soon! 

making that post inspired the search “torchwood dragon age” and you can imagine how my heart leapt when I saw a fanfiction.net entry as the second result
also how it sank deep into inconsolable woe when I saw this image crest my screen
weep not for me. I just need to watch enough Torchwood to have a rich understanding of the canon and then Gwen is gonna meet Merrill and one of them will kill the other.

Solas in Dragon Age Inquisition is Gareth David-Lloyd

a.k.a. Ianto from Torchwood,

and Vivienne is Indira Varma a.k.a. Suzie from Torchwood,

and Merrill in DA2 was Eve Myles who was, that’s right, Gwen from Torchwood,

and all I can think of is that Torchwood was really bad but someone at Bioware obviously really loved Torchwood a lot and took deep, double-breathed inspiration from it for all future endeavours. They saw that goofy little Welsh sci-fi drama with its misappropriated sense of grown-up morals and something deep in their heart swelled impuncturable. god bless you Bioware/Torchwood ship

I think I’ve finally aphorised why my sister and I are not close, and it’s that

we’re both sort of cool and smug and superior when you get us in a room together,

but I’m cool and smug and superior about wizards, and she’s cool and smug and superior about the volkswagen golf

this song, while catchy, essentially constitutes a dire warning about acapulco’s occult power, and how a prolonged stay will drive you irrevocably insane.

I quote, “you’ll be going loco down in acapulco/if you stay too long

going loco down in acapulco/the magic down there is so strong

Phil Collins was trying to tell us something and we didn’t listen, we didn’t listen for a second

what terrors lie beneath the southron waves we will wish we had not discovered. what fleshy gargoyles haunt the climes of Phil Collins’ feverish dreams

just found out someone I was friends with back in ought leven for a while turned out to be a rapist

what a weird, horrible feeling

how could you do that to your friend magni or whatever his name was, I think magni. no! muradin! muradin bronzebeard you monster

they decided in wow that he didnt actually die and he just lost his memory and became king of the frost dwarves

this was the dumbest thing because they made such a big deal out of arthas killing muradin being like his ~POINT OF NO RETURN~

but i guess arthas was a big ol softy and just like bonked him on his head

this is to say nothing of the troubling suggestion that the dwarven monarchy possesses some innate superiority that, even as a statusless drifter, muradin was able to become king of an entirely different culture of dwarves with whom he had no social influence. are we to believe that the common dwarf is of some inherently genetically inferior stock compared to their royals. did the titans hew the bronzebeards from stronger stone… are the rabble of ironforge put there by their construction…

let’s be fair here ambi, he was a level 10 mountain king, whoever was running against him in the monarch election probably didn’t have the ability to turn into a giant stone statue immune to such ubiquitous magic spells as cyclone and hex

that said he did shout “for khaz modaaaan” when he did it and that’s hard coded so by frost dwarf standards he isnt a very patriotic king and it probably hurt him in the polls to some extent

edit: also plaid is just sidestepping her complicity in the murder of a manifestly destined dwarflord with startling alacrity over here

spacetwinks:

batman comics keep depicting the catwoman relationship as like her being a femme fatale and batman is all “you are a criminal and i should arrest you but instead we will have sex and you will have a seductive look on your face; i, on the other hand, will never stop scowling” but imo it should way…

A few of the covers to some of the novels in the “Frankenstein Horror Series”.  I’m not sure how much this series had to do with Frankenstein or his monster other than a few books focusing on them.  Instead, the rest seem to be tales of mad science, the living dead and evil curses.
