The lights are on
Veteran Member - Level 13
Yet another successful week of GaMe. After a few weeks of nothing, we hold strong at 7 entries. Along with the return of a familiar face, the normal crowd, and the newest participants, I am happy to say GaMe can continue! As long as we can keep the numbers up. So, onto the recap, eh?
KillerRabbitFTW's Pokemon Revolution by benderstrike64
KR says-benderstrike64 tells an entertaining story about the day Pokemon
finally struck back at their cruel human masters. Luckily, I'm a bit of a
Pokemon nut myself, and was able to understand most of the references
to the games. I found the climax with Youngster Joey particularly
satisfying, because that little punk wouldn't stop giving me annoying
calls when I was playing Pokemon Soulsilver. All hail Killer the
Azumarill, Champion of the Opressed!
The Legend of Zelda: Ganon's Final Battle by Mike
KR says-Mike's entry has a nice mix drama, action, and video game references.
As far as reservations go, my main complaint is that Mike didn't try to
flatter me by making me superhero. Instead, he made me relatively weak
compared to all these video game characters, which is probably a more
realistic approach. Then again, he did make Samus my love interest...
[thinks about it for a minute]
I have no qualms with how I was portrayed in this story.
A Strange Story by DJH
KR says-In this story by DJH, my character is banished, beaten, robbed, and
left for dead. I respond to these hardships the same way any reasonable
person would: I commit mass murder. At least my crimes against humanity
are committed in a fairly interesting way. SPOILER ALERT: it involves
rabbits- rabbits that KILL.
Killer Rabbit vs. The Cooking Mama by Chris, the retired galaxy saver
KR says-Chris has proven that he possesses an intellect that far exceeds my
own. When I read between the lines of this tragic tale, I feel I've
grasped an inkling of Chris's greater message, only to find myself more
lost when I reflect on it further. I highly recommend you take the time
to read this shockingly brief story, but be warned: at its conclusion,
you will find yourself staring blankly at the screen, unable to
comprehend what drove Chris to write this narrative.
Tale of a Dimension-Traveling Rabbit by BRAV0 F1VE
KR says-BRAV0 implied that he wrote his entry during a moment of sleep
deprivation, and the story he wrote shows it. One moment my character is
running around doing rabbit things, then a spectral being appears and
sets him off on his quest. He travels through video game worlds, unsure
of what he's supposed to be doing. Then he just gives up and goes home. I
still can't decide if the twist at the end was predictable or not. You
guys should read it just so we can discuss the ending.
The Unlucky Foot by dadarkheart
It seems as though every single one of these entries involves some
horrible thing happening to me, but dadarkheart seemed bent on writing
the most disturbing GaMe of all, in which I have the suckiest life
possible. This story is funny, but it's depressing at the same time.
Having me lose my innocence for comedic effect seems just a tad
The Lady Killer by xking595x
As you can infer from the title, in King's entry, I'm a bit of a lady
killer. This story is based on a personal story in the Sims 3, and
those of us who have played it will recognize that you can do all of
these things in the game. There is also a very good morale to this
story: if you fool around with a married woman, make sure you can beat
the husband in a fight. Also, make sure your house is insured.
Interestingly, all of this week's GaMe entries seem to be about me
being placed in an awful situation and how I respond to my predicament.
benderstrike64 and DJH had me kill a bunch of people. dadarkheart had me
contemplate suicide. BRAV0 F1VE had me decide that I was wasting my
time, so I just went home and played video games. Only Mike went with
the crazy idea of making me a human being. I'm not saying his story was
flawless. I got the feeling that if his entry were a video game, I would
be the insecure child character that everyone hates. Even so, I'm
impressed with Mike's willingness to incorporate real emotions with his
tale. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the other entries. You guys are
all awesome (except for you, dadarkheart).
I didn't have enough time to re-read these entries and give my thoughts, and I apologize for that. But this weeks Honorable Mention goes out to Chris, the retired galaxy saver. After a few weeks of absence (about 10 or so) he comes back with one of the most disturbing and hilarious reads I've read in awhile. The title alone is worthy of the mention. Trust me, no one likes Cookin' Mama.
So congrats to Mike! For those wanting to participate, you can find his profile here
As for you Killer, go ahead and put the badge of your profile. Ya earned it.
As usual, take care
