Fall 2011 Video Game Playthroughs: Fable III, Portal 2, Fallout 3 GOTY

Portal 2 Co-Op (4.5/5)

Other than online multiplayer or the occasional console tag team, I rarely play cooperative mode. Up to this point, the best experience I could claim was from plowing through the Halo trilogy one weekend with a college buddy, and even then, the actual “help your teammate complete a task” moments were few and far between.

With Portal 2, the gameplay is similar to the main game, but distinctly different. It takes you awhile to remember that having four portals as opposed to just two means you can try all kinds of complicated stuff. And yet, there were three times I forgot I could just HAND a weighted cube to my teammate. Overall, I lucked out in getting a decent random-assigned partner, who was on the same level as me for figuring out puzzles.

The Co-op campaign had enough new spin on the game mechanics to warrant a playthrough, but none of the great story of the main campaign. Unless you can deal with the player-competence lottery and long stretch of time needed to run the whole thing in one go, it’s a pass without local friends and a night free.

Fall 2011 Video Game Playthroughs: Fable III, Portal 2, Fallout 3 GOTY

Portal 2 (5/5)

It’s not very easy to follow-up a successful game like Portal, especially given how unintentional the impact of the game was on the market. With the second entry Valve came and not only kept the challenge and fun of the original short game, it added new twists and showed just far they’ve come in environment creation and storytelling.

Despite it being a puzzle-platformer, the depth of the game is incredibly beyond many of its First-Person rivals. Music, art design, characterization; all of them are top-notch and only add to an incredibly tight game, delivering a huge experience in a relatively small setting.

Like most DLC, this is really just some new maps and costume options*. If you like the story elements in this series, there’s some interesting little bits, but really nothing too original. As breathtaking a design as Traitor’s Keep was, I disliked it for being used as the hub for all the missions, requiring a lot of running to and from the center of the island to the docks.

*The above was my preferred end-game costume, after my royal attire and Pirates-style main quest garb.

Fable III (3.5/5)

The visual style, music, humor, side-quests and challenge level were pretty good, but the game faltered for issues with navigation, travel time, and the dev team’s attempt to over-simplify the control scheme made combat a bit of a chore to get accustomed to.

“TrollHunter” (2010)

If you’re into stuff like Hellboy/B.P.R.D., check it out.

It uses the same “found footage” angle as “Blair Witch,” “Paranormal Activity,” “Quarantine,” and “Apollo 18,” but the camera work is actually pretty solid; helps that they’re shooting in some damn beautiful parts of Scandinavia.

(commence Internet troll jokes in the comments)

Same guy (Dan Bishop) who does production design on Mad Men worked on this.

The Joker next tried hiring paranoid schizophrenics as his henchmen. Instead of following his precise instructions to the letter, they got confused easily and wandered off.

Meet Zoolander.

2009 Ford Focus. First “new” car I’ve ever had. Everything before was a clunker hand-me-down.

Why do we call it Zoolander? Because it’s BLUE STEEL.

“Scandinavia and the World” is a webcomic where-in the history and modern day politics of the countries are played out as if they’re all on some messed up anime sitcom (yes, not unlike “Hetalia: Axis Powers” if you know what the hell that is). Your usual Deviantard wank-fest stuff, but some of the strips are kind of funny.

Here’s some of the ones featuring America.

Not included: the running joke of Denmark being REALLY racist without ever realizing it. And Sweden’s sister being a total slut.

Most recent season cast photo? Shoop? Who knows, who cares? Although a little Amber Tamblyn love wouldn’t hurt (she has been rockin’ those stockings on her guest appearance).
