conquerorwurm asked: The characters in Infamous 2 were so much more human and better written that I had to switch and become a good guy because I felt like shit disappointing them ahahaaa

LAUGHS. IN GAME SHAMING.

Thats nice to hear though! The gameplay is fun but if the actual writing is better then MAYBE I WONT GET DISTRACTED AND STOP PLAYING. I actually have two copies of it - I found one at a garage sale for fifty cents and forgot that I already had it laughs. If I have TWO of a game it feels like I really shouldnt have any excuse for not having played it

except that I am easily distracted especially away from video games. oops.

also as an aside I was apparently one of the FEW PEOPLE who liked original Cole’s super rough kind of damaged voice and was sad to hear that they changed it. And I also wasnt excited to find out that he gets a melee weapon although I’m sure I’ll learn to love it. I’m ALL BACKWARDS apparently.

combobulatedprognosticator asked: I'm curious if you played any of the Mass Effect games? It was one of the few games where I had a much harder time choosing between the "good" and "evil" decisions (I usually play good), because often the "evil" response was less actually evil and more... questionably good but expedient? By-the-books cop vs plays-by-his-own-rules-cop? Sorta?

I haaaavent! I’m

uh. 

I’m gonna be honest here I let the visual style of mass effect influence me and dont actually much of anything about the games because it just looks/ed like so many OTHER games that I’m not interested in I somehow just glazed over and have missed all of the ME everything. I mean. …it just LOOKS like a typical 360 game YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? I know you shouldnt judge a book by its cover but I totally did.

Its good though?

slywit asked: I've seen that gif a few times, and as mediocre Krav student, I'm not sure if I trust it. At all. I think it requires far more coordination for that kick at the knees than almost anyone could accomplish in fear for their life. That, and I'm pretty sure that the gun is pointing at his chin for most of that disarm, which is a #1 no no. First thing you do is make sure the gun isn't pointing at you. As long as it's pointing away, you're safe. I'm convinced there are far easier and safer techniques.

I know NOTHING about it, as I’d never even heard of Krav Maga until doing a quick google to see if that was from a stunt video of something, but I aaaabsolutely dont feel safe for the person when I watch the gif. I would not doubt your mistrust of it at all, especially since you’ve actually studied it (which is really neat! A+ slywit) and would never ever think that is something that anyone should try just because Hey I Saw It On The Internet Once Its Totally Legit, Right??

The fact that he yanks the guys arm down to point back at him and it looks like the attacker is still holding the gun just makes me so anxious for him, because its not like any sort of precision or intent would be needed at that point. Just one last fumble on the gun and oops well maybe I shouldnt have used his arm as leverage when he was holding that weapon. 

So I’m just kind of assuming it was a stunt done by two guys for the sake of being showy instead of actually being a helpful technique - and if it is then it totally does its job of grabbing people’s attention and making them interested in learning more about it, even if just for creative fuel.

oh shit
he puts his hands up like he’s pleading and catches the guy completely off guard. i mean. he’s got a gun. guy’s on his knees. he feels totally safe and in control of the situation. then the guys hands are right next to the gun and he surprises him and immediately tilts the weapon up and away from him and yanks the arm down while thrusting his legs forward to kneecap the guy and manages to wrench the gun away
so shit now the second guy is on the ground with probably a broken knee and no gun and the first guy has the weapon and is fucking free and clear remember this me you need to remember this

Re blogging this because there is a chance this might save a life.

that v noble but im gonna reblog this so my friends can use this in their fanfiction

Fanfiction fodder reblog.

yeah that’s gonna show up in my writing one day


Dang this makes me a little anxious to watch though. It looks like the first guy still has his hand on the gun when the man on the ground pulls down for kicking leverage and its pointing right at his chest. 

Doing a quick reverse search on the image implies that this is is a “Krav Maga" technique though, for any of us who want to read more about it.

conquerorwurm replied to your post “also I forgot to talk about sasha laughs CONTINUES TO BLOG ABOUT YE…”

Are you playing as a “good” guy?

LAUGHS I forgot all about the evil half of the game

im gonna be honest here i feel guilty for stepping on a snail one night two or three years ago sometimes I remember that snail in the middle of my every day life and feel SO SORRY THAT I DID THAT im not very capable of choosing the darker morality choices in games because it makes me feel really bad to beat up on fictional things.

Is Sasha more effective in the ~evil~ side?

ETA:

conquerorwurm replied to your post “also I forgot to talk about sasha laughs CONTINUES TO BLOG ABOUT YE…”

I ask because she is a little fun to help out as a “bad” guy but still not well written and just pointless in general

Aaaah. Yeah I bet she’s probably more fun. I just didnt think about the other half of the game at all, SILLY ME.

I really love TED talks. This one is about confidence and body language and the way you hold yourself affecting how you feel and perceptions of you and faking it until you make it. 

I believe a lot in the things you tell yourself being a self fulfilling cycle! Telling yourself that you’re a delight when you start to feel bad about something, taking a minute to pretend you’re wonder woman when you dont feel so awesome, etc. I think the things you say and do to/about yourself end up seeping into your brain and eventually you start to believe it, even if you think its a lie at first. (and it most definitely is not a lie. I can confirm that every single one of you is a delight.)
