So there I was, sitting in front of my laptop, staring at a textedit page that I had opened up. It was a cool, summer night, and I was planning on staying up all night to write a personal statement for college. My mind was blank, I was nervous and it hadn't occurred to me that my brothers were about to go to the liquor store for late-night snacks. I thought to myself, "Well... I could go for a can of Arnie. (This is a drink known as "Arnold Palmer". It's basically iced tea mixed with lemonade. It's a gentleman's drink, you see. It's a me drink.) I should ask him for some." And so I did. He replied, "Where's the money?" "Damn!" I though, "I'm penniless..." I would have begged him to buy one for me, but I'm not that kind of guy. I said, "Oh, well, maybe next time." He laughed and said, "Ha! You're as broke as me now." What a cad... Him and my little brother opened the door and talked on the porch for a bit. They discussed whether or not it would be best to purchase Nacho Cheese doritos or those god-awful blue ones. Stale Semen flavor, I think they were called. As they were about to decide, my younger brother shouted, "Don't you take another step!" I immediately thought that he had finally snapped. All those days of playing Warframe, grinding and selling crap items to fools in the marketplace... I finally thought it had broken him. I was wrong, however, because as soon as I set foot outside the doorway, I noticed his arm stretched out in front of my older brother. He was warning him, protecting him from the evil creature that made our porch its home. It was white and gold. It had eight legs and eight eyes. It looked like a demon straight out of the Goetia. Yes, it was here to tempt us with the knowledge of the world, but little did it know that, although my younger brother is a terrible merchant, he is wise to the ways of demons and their ilk. My brothers and I froze in horror and disgust. How dare this unholy arachnid think itself so clever as to craft its web in front our very faces! It was insulting! Normally, we would banish such creatures with our... uh, vaccum, but we knew we were no match for this beast. Instead, we left it alone. We decided to wait 'till morning, when it was most vulnerable, to initiate our attack. But woe is the man who thinks himself so clever for simply moving a chess piece onto a most strategic space without thinking ahead of the game! As we maneuvered past the web, there was another eight-legged beast building a hellish web of evil right in front of our very faces! If it were not for my younger brother's excellent eyesight, I daresay that he and I would have been food for the beast and its cohort. I am thankful that I have family to rely on. We plan on henceforth removing the beasts at the break of dawn. Whatever victims they manage to catch tonight shall be their last. Pray for my safety, dear friends. I am a humble man, but I am also a weak one. I cannot do this alone. Again, I ask for your prayers. Thank you
Okay, so I could have put this in the already established Animal Crossing topic but this is just so unique that it deserves it's own topic. I was studying up on the mechanics of "feng shui" in ACNL and I stumbled across something neat. Seems that someone in good ol' Japan decided to go all out in making their town the best (or worst depending on your point of view) Dream Suite experience available. The town is known as Aika village according to the interwebs. Dream Code: 2600-0218-7298 The town is set up like a maze going from the first player resident's house to the secon, third, and fourth. Each house and the areas around them tell a story about a girl. I'm not going into too much detail, but suffice to say it's quite incredible what this person has managed to do with their town and how creepy they've made it. There are quite a few little secrets that are easy to miss and unfortunantly most of you won't have the advantage of being able to read Japanese to understand what the players messages are saying, but worry not. I'll post a vid showing all the secrets and translations. I suggest that if you have the game you explore the town a bit first before watching the vid as the impact of these secrets would be much greater finding them on your own. PRO TIP: Make sure you thoroughly search the rooms and rotate the camera as some secrets are well hidden. WARNING: There's no jump scares or gore, but the story it tells and imagery can be considered by some to be creepy or disturbing. Don't bitch at me if it scares you. SKIP TO 10:40. It's a long ass vid and the first ten minutes aren't necessary. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=qYX-NfY945g Yeah, I decided to check this out during a dark and stormy night. I had a somewhat difficult time walking to the bathroom that night.... To be fair though, games get to me kinda easily (even though I'm more or less immune to scary movies). So anyway, tell me if you liked it. Or if you thought it was lame or old news be sure to bitch at me so that I can cry about it. =D
