2 Big Ones

I meant computer games – what did you think I was talking about? Tomorrow sees the release of 2 titles I’ve been watching for months (sadly not years, as development times are almost always a rushed out affair these days).

One is Jedi : Fallen Order

and the other is the Terminator : Resistance game.

Many could understandably say that Disney have some audacity expecting us to get all excited over a Star Wars game considering they shut down LucasArts seemingly the minute the deal was signed off. But I’ve read one former LucasArts employee say that LucasArts by the end was not the LucasArts people remember for Day Of The Tentacle etc. So perhaps take…..comfort, from that…? I haven’t looked too much into what people are saying about the game and I’ve zero interest in all the # shills on Twitter jumping up squealing “I’ve been sent a preview for my relentless arse licking and hashtagging, everyone!!!”. I’m interested in what people playing it when it’s released have to say. You know those people – actual gamers…?

The other big one is the Terminator game. I’ve watched what people are commenting under the trailer for this on YouTube. Most are trashing it. But these are the types of people who will trash anything unless it’s the next Call of Duty or Fortnite add-on. Some have said it looks like a phone game.

From the trailer the flame effects do look a bit iffy, as if the flames themselves are contained within an invisible box. But the thing that will have me buying this game to try for myself is seeing the Terminators themselves animated – they look amazing! Also the sound effects sound pretty damn good – lasers overhead in the battle scene sounded exactly like the ones you hear at the opening of Terminator 2.

I tire of these fucking game snobs comparing ANYTHING that’s released to a AAA title with a multi-million budget. Some of those have been the most banal, mediocre games you could possibly play (look at Fortnite).

After experiencing the joy of pinpoint accuracy in Doom with a mouse control method, I might well go for Jedi : Fallen Order on PC first – even though from the Uncharted-esque gameplay it surely lends itself best to a PS4 controller. One thing I’m dreading is that god-awful Wall-E backpack you’re forced to carry around. Yes yes I’m sure “it does useful things” but really, do we HAVE to have a cutesy element crow-barred into everything Star Wars now?? There has to be other ways to get whatever functionality that stupid thing provides other than some stupid bleeping, blooping whirring thing. Just another reason it can be said the Dark Side is always more fun..!

Welcome to some sanity in insane times…

Post 1 (exciting eh)

I’m starting this today, this morning. I should be going to bed for my night shift but I wanted to launch my blog. The layout etc will DOUBTLESS change. I am just keen to get it launched.

I’ve been suspended from Twitter. Again. My crime…? Telling everyone that gays should be killed? Some racist rhetoric? Some sort of praise for terrorism….? No. My “hate rule violation” was, in fact, after I commented on CNN’s story about the parents of Harry Dunn, where they were saying that Donald “abused his powers”.

This dear friends was my EXACT response:

@CNN I don’t know that he abused his power. I do know that’s one insensitive, thick cunt inviting the callous bitch who killed their son along to wait in the room next to them when they went to meet him.

A fair summary? NO. This was apparently “violating our rules against hateful conduct”. I don’t know whether I was reported or Twitter picked it up themselves but this…is…PATHETIC. I’ve actually made far worse quips on there – not a peep from Twitter. I literally told the truth mixed with opinion and that’s “hateful conduct” apparently. And you know what…that was the final straw. Twitter: go fuck yourselves.

So I arrive here, on my very own paid for domain. It may take me a long long time to build up a little following. I may never build up a following at all. But I am sick to fucking death of treading eggshells, and eggshells that you can’t even SEE on Twitter. I am not going to be shut down for AN OPINION. I’m not going to be banished for having thoughts and ideas. Twitter as a tool of free speech is a joke now. I’m sure the original intentions were good. But since the advent of the woke mob, so full of hatred and bile that they literally have nothing else to do all day but sit virtue signalling about how racist and sexist they’re not (really, who in the real world DOES that?? Who NEEDS to do that??), Twitter has gone on hyper alert to anything that might upset these delicate, feeble minded people – to the extent now that even innocuous opinions are evidently classed now as “hateful conduct”.

For now welcome, this is my site, my name is Stephen, don’t take yourself too seriously…

Oh and by the way, it might well be called “insanity daily” – this does not mean it will necessarily be UPDATED daily – it’s referring to the insanity you can find more or less every single day.
