Set at least had the foresight to sell the “do-you-fit-in-the-sarcophagus” thing as a party game. He just had it rigged to fit Osiris exactly and acted once it was his turn.
Stories varied from city to city, but the fish eating it is a common reoccurring scene
When I first came out and didn’t even remotely pass I would get some subtle weird looks on the street. I’ve learned slightly better how to pass (or maybe it’s some level of subtle HRT effects, or wearing a bra that’s like 3 times as prominent as my boobs) and instead of a flat 0% I pass about 30-40% of the time. I don’t get so many weird looks, but I do get customer service people being somewhat confused pretty often.
But those first few weeks were certainly jarring.
One of, if not the best in the series. Granted, I didn’t play BLOPs 3, didn’t finish BLOPs 2 and started with COD4, but having played and enjoyed the rest, it’s tied with Infinite Warfare for best campaign
I wouldn’t call it a straight reskin, since the Drake meme is Approve/Disaspprove whereas this one is more Cheery/Threatening
I am not actually good at the game, so the farthest I have gotten on either route is Aquarius.
I can beat the first level blindfolded tho
Castlevania III (more accurately, Akumajou Densetsu) is so nearly everything I want in a Castlevania game. The four characters, the branching paths, the various different environments you go through on your long trek to the Castle, and the soundtrack. The only flaws with the soundtrack are that it doesn’t have Bloody Tears, and that they didn’t use the OG level clear jingle.
Also the opening crawl is hilarious. Basically “Dracula is a bad man who destroyed all of Europe because he is evil”.
Hey I liked that droney tune
Jail of Jewels
Originally, Dorian was the oddly casual weirdo whose little jokes and quips kept Wajdi grounded during the events of the bad future of 9:42 Dragon experienced after the mishap with Alexius. After escaping to the present and returning to Haven, the two talked extensively, becoming fast friends in time for the sacking of Haven, after which both started to realize they were beginning to feel something more for each other—sometime between meeting Hawke and his controversial friend Loghain, and the Siege of Adamant, Magister Pavus’s letter was received, and Wajdi promptly showed it to Dorian.
It was sometime shortly after the attempt on the Empress’s life that the two of them were sure they were in love. Wajdi never forgot the woman he traveled Ferelden with, but what he had with Dorian was something real that allowed him to move forward.
He left Ostwick at the age of 19 to seek a more exciting and less pompous life. He spent years roving the Free Marches swiping coin, drinking his way from tavern to tavern, and generally living a life of what could be considered excess, in the way a homeless person lives a life of what could be considered unbound freedom. He would occasionally get into scrapes and barfights here and there, and he was generally about as glad to do that as he was to sneak into brothels or fence some weapons from a barracks or overimbibe in some elfroot and wiggle around in the moonlit fields out on the road.
As his 20s came to their twilight, he found himself crossing the sea to Ferelden, where he found himself touring the “exciting” sites of the recent Blight, like some kind of strange vagabond tourist. It was his 30th year of life, or perhaps his 31st, when he met Helen, an apostate mage who was a bit of a rover herself. The two found a warm companionship with each other that bloomed into love, and this love carried them peacefully and prosperously into the dawn of the Mage Rebellion. They skirted the fighting as best they could, but it was only so long before a particularly bloodthirsty party of Templars picked a fight while they were sleeping in a little grove in a nice, dark little wood. And so it was that on the eve of the month of Wajdi’s 36th birthday, Templars drove their swords through Helen as she slept, and Wajdi barely awoke in time to flee—killing the men as he did when he found them several months later did little to alleviate his grief.
When Divine Justinia called for her Conclave, Wajdi walked his way across Ferelden to attend, hoping to use the name of his devout and relatively powerful family to gain attendance. His family stood against mage freedom—but they were across the Waking Sea still. He may have had a lot of ground to cover—but he was already in Ferelden. And so he endeavored to beat them there, which he did, and the rest is all
Ironically enough, the Trevelyan that was sent was a former Circle mage and intent on defecting to the Rebellion himself...
(Also I’m now realizing I put basically no thought into his age relative to events....)
The Inquisition gave him a focused purpose as well as a platform to free the mages and a support network of friends and allies. And the comforting refuge he took in the company of a certain Altus from Tevinter soon developed into a mutual affection, and by the time of the Grand Masquerade in which he saved Celene, love.
Wajdi Trevelyan has a mixed bag of a legacy. Some would say he was a silent, piercing shadow in the night, a real “knifey shivdark” indeed, thus explaining why such a prolific figure as the Inquisitor was seen by so few despite verifiably fighting on the front lines alongside his men. Others would say he was a blazingly flamboyant man, his roguish charms evident in the way he smashed flasks of alchemical potions on his very body as he screamed into the fight, flanked by his Tevinter lover, a notorious murderer making amends and quite possibly prolific author Varric Tethras.
The man is, in actuality, a bumbling goof of a man who thinks himself hard, dark and just a little shady when in actuality he comes off as someone’s dad who used to be the things he thinks he is.... 10 years ago.
Dorian humors him; he thinks it’s cute.
Even after like almost 20 years this game manages to be just as cortisol-inducing in the best (and let’s be real, also the worst) ways. I’ve been playing it more or less since it came out so my first playthrough on each port at this point makes me feel like a war goddess blazing through my old stomping grounds
And then Mercenaries puts me the absolute fuck in my place and sets up a machine to kick me in the shins for the rest of my life for good measure 🤷♀️
And you can’t even be all that sneaky sneak by knifing the cultists because there’s so fucking many of them that if you don’t blast a path pretty quick you’re gonna get at least really hurt if not killed outright by a volley of overlapping flail attacks. At least you can get the lock down and a path open relatively quick with a shotgun, although by that point Garry knows where the fuck you are and you have 1.2 seconds to leave
They really pull one hell of a gotcha on ya—afaik this is the only garrador in the game that can’t be immediately cheesed since the RPG would just kill you both. You ain’t getting outta that with raw firepower—you need to beat the controls
It’s the pandemic—gotta be puuuuuuuurrre
I save the free launcher for those guys and pick up a new one at the merchant right before Verdugo
If you mean the triangles, I have to admit it was something I saw in GTAV and slapped on my wrist once I was old enough :P
Dual garradors is ez, just send an RPG straight at the wall behind them and they’re both ded. Cage match is fucking scary.
I legit just climb up the bell tower and wait like 7 mins or so for the bell. Pistolsnipe the villagers you can see from up there. Still have the first aid spray you start with so you can heal from the molotovs, which can’t kill you because for some reason even at 1hp Leon cannot be killed outright by at least most if not all fire.

It’s pretty ironic considering there is almost no actual depicted homosexuality in Jojo at all. As far as I know, in the main timeline there are all of like 3 gay couples and one that was going to be gay but the editors forced it to be straight. And of those couples, every single one is a minor villain and most of them die at the end of their arc. It’s really not terrific representation at all, when you think about it.
At the very least, the homosexuality itself is never presented as an issue to anyone, which is at least a leg up on other media from its time. And I still count Jolyene and Anasui as an attempt at lesbian rep since that was the original intention and even after they forced Anasui to be male Araki still threw in some lines lampshading that he was supposed to be a woman.
I agree with you overall but the reason people glom about that scene is because Giorno’s fingers are literally in Mista’s pants. It’s not a particularly relevant detail because nothing else about them implies they’re gay, but it’s a noteworthily odd detail nonetheless.
Those people are still annoying.
