What The Hell Is Up With The Terrible Writing In Tomb Raider (2013)


This is just a quick one because although I only just played this, this game has been out for ages and there isn't really much to say other than just my basic point that I so subtly hinted at in the title. But Jesus Sweet Jesus, do people really think that the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot is well written? Because if that's so then fuck me in the face with a jagged crocodile dick, everyone needs to really hold video game writing up to a better standard than this. There aren't going to be many spoilers here, because to be honest there's nothing really to spoil. The story of this game is shit, the characters are shit and basically nothing happens.

Macbeth, Sailor Moon, Boromir, Robocop and Tywin Lannister

Has Aaron just gone mad and started to put all his fan fiction on the website? No actually, welcome to "Awesome stuff that was announced this week" or ASTWAF (continuing my war on acronyms for Internet segments that never go anywhere). Here are three cool things that have happened.

(Four days, four articles, what is going on?)

1. Macbeth announced, cast awesome.


He pissed? He pissed.

Sean Bean will play Macbeth, Charles Dance is Duncan, Ron Wealsey Rupert Grint is going to play Ross. If that doesn't spur you on then McDuff is being played by Nightcrawler's dad in X-men First class. I for one will watch that movie. The only question remaining is where is my awesome version of Hamlet.

Oh yeah, David Tennant and Patrick Stewart already rocked Prince of Denmark.

Poetry Corner 9: Simulation

Sorry it is late, one sentence took four times as long as the rest of the poem. Always the way. Also, no Harvey Spellcheck so please don't shoot me. Hope you enjoy it more than me. (bonus points if you guess Aaron's dodgy rhyme of the week)



In the world of constant things to do.
Infinite stimulation
The disconnect between me and you.
Through continuous simulation.

Why would I meet new people
with such pleasant social castration
when the mere act of being feels so regal
irrespective of location

I Didn't Really Get Cardiff Comic Con 2013


So last weekend I went to the Cardiff Comic con with rest of the WAC group and a few tag alongs. In all fairness to the title I gave this article, we did actually go because it was the Cardiff version of Comic con and so expected nothing less than a budget version of every other one being held. However, what I found was a little less than budget, bordering on the verge of the pointless, where I couldn't really work out what the event was really even there for other than just a glorified flea market.
