Butler Falls Off Trains in: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

Steam did a banging sale because of May the 4th, so I picked up some old Star Wars games I haven't played before/played in ages. Video of Jedi Academy after the jump.

Expect:
  • Lightsabers
  • Cutscene insulting
  • Acrobatics
  • Failure
  • Germany erasing the Star Wars theme from the opening because hahahahaha fuck those guys

UKIP: The Rise of Xenophobia. A reprise to the infamous video.

Hello everybody, I return to you now, at the turn of the tide. After one month and one day of silence my dissertation is in and a third of my exams are done, so I can stop panicking and get back to writing. Thanks to Harvey and Butler (who definitely do not "blow" or "suck") for picking up the slack. Especially Butler who had the exact same workload as me and somehow managed to do that AND write AND play more games than I managed to. Truly he is a modern day Achilles.

So now that I'm back I spent some time thinking: "What should my first article be on?". I had had some requests in the comments and e-mails (chapkatsu@whataboutcynics.com) to do an article on my dissertation, and I think I might eventually, but right now I don't overly want to think about Schleswig-Holstein and Danish Nationalism ever again; so we will give it a week or two. I decided to cover the topic that got the second most extreme response during WaC, namely the half a dozen death threats that came with covering UKIP. And as there is an election in 19 days that they are scheduled to win, what a perfect time to reflect on how far our - soon to be - fascist overlords have come.

When we are living in the dictatorship of God-Emperor Farage, these photos will be banned.
It is proof he can bleed.
