XIII, Pistol

-Here is a game that is not talked about enough. XIII (as in 13) was a Ubisoft shooter based on a Blegian comic book series. It had a comic book look, with it’s cell shaded visuals. Which at the time was still a bit of novelty. 

The game doesn’t have a ton of great reloads, but I do like this pistol reload. Simpe but effective. He actually loads in a magazine and pulls the slide back. It just looks nice. (Also play XIII, it’s cool.)


I always come back to the cast’s reactions to when they found out. 

1. KJ wasn’t surprised
2. Cole was slightly surprised, but thought it made sense
3. Madelaine thought it made sense and tied everything together, and also said it would ruin Cheryl’s life
4. Cami was surprised but had suspected them before
5. Lili said it was a complete surprise
6. Ashleigh said it was a complete surprise (but she’s also not in that episode)

So how could everyone kinda know except Lili and Ashleigh? 

The computer scene in the promo is definitely a video of the murder (see Juggy’s reaction). I don’t think this literally reveals the killer, but I think whoever killed Jason filmed the video to scare people away or get something out of Jason. idk. they killed someone. they are obviously crazy. Since all the kids are there, and they all look equally shocked… except maybe Archie (who looks like Oh) and Betty (who looks slightly guilty or sad) and they are notably the only ones who didn’t cover their mouths in shock. I’ve seen several people say Kevin is the killer/accomplice but I honestly can’t see it. He wasn’t involved much in the last episode, so it wouldn’t flow if he was the star of e12.

Now onto the matter of the gun. Theories are flying that the Alice planted the gun and it was the one she found in Betty’s room. But in the e12 promo you see Alice holding that gun. Unless she has another gun, it is the same one that Betty had. (sidenote: I have seen a theory that says the gun Alice found in Betty’s room is not the same as Grundy’s, which is very interesting. Also the gun found in FP’s trailer doesn’t even look like Grundy’s.) And besides the Coopers, who else do we know has guns? The Blossoms (they had guns when they were looking for Polly)

My money is now on one of the parents, especially the Blossoms. In the new promo, Betty accuses Penelope and Penelope is also dragging Cheryl around, which is very suspicious. My last theory was Clifford, but he isn’t featured in the promo at all. If the promo wasn’t chronological, Polly could have confronted Penelope after they watched the video. 

I found it very weird that Alice told B&V whoever isn’t in this room is a suspect because that is a very big absolute. Sure the she probably trusts Betty and Veronica wasn’t even in Riverdale, but she doesn’t know for sure, for someone who believes it could have been anyone. Alice knows who did it, but I don’t think it was her. 

Betty’s dad is in the promo staring at the murder wall (i think) which is sketchy. Yet I don’t think he has enough plot for him to be the killer- it just wouldn’t flow.

Fred is in the promo threatening Archie which is very sketch. Yet Archie’s reaction to the murder video is not incriminating, not in the way Betty’s reaction is. However it does seem that Fred knows something else, like Alice. (I don’t think Molly Ringwald is the killer at all.)

FP man. I don’t know. He was definitely framed but having Jason’s jacket and then not even being surprised at seeing the gun there, let alone claiming it wasn’t his shows he was almost expecting it. But when V and Archie left the trailer they didn’t even lock it… so maybe Archie at least was expecting someone to go in after them, and the lights in the trailer while they were kissing shows a car was outside… maybe watching them? (Also how tf did they not notice that?) Why was FP ready to leave for Toledo all of a sudden??

The Lodges are suspicious, but I think they would be too obvious. I love Hermione so I don’t want her to be guilty at all. She is in the promo though…

And finally, props to Jughead for saying, “If it wasn’t my dad, who killed Jason Blossom?” in the promo, which is the most obvious question ever.

Next weapon incoming: The Plasma Rifle!

The primary fire is going to be the classic fast-moving, globular ball of hot goo we all know and love, coming out at a semi rapid rate. I’m going to try having them bounce around up to three or four times as well to differentiate more from the SMG.

Every new ranged enemy from now on is also going to fire slower projectiles, I’ll leave the near-hitscan bullets for the TV-Bots.

I’m still debating what to do with the Secondary Fire. I could do a heat burst like in D44M, A beam like Unreal’s Link Gun or Quake’s Lightning Gun, or an even slower charged shot that comes out in an arc and does damage over time in a small area for a few seconds. Anyone with a preference?

Questions I need answers to in the finale
  • Where the fuck is Grundy’s gun? Is it the same one Alice was brandishing at Hal?
  • Was FP working for Clifford and did he kidnap Jason and tie him up in the basement of the Whyte Wyrm?
  • Were the drugs FP was peddling actually Cliff’s?
  • WTF did Gladys say to Juggie? (sidenote: I will never forgive her for making him cry!!)
  • Are Kevin and Joaquin reuniting? How did Kevin not know Joaquin was shady when he knew he was part of the Serpents and they were drug dealers?
  • Who the fuck pays someone to do their dirty deeds in a monogrammed bag?
  • Why the fuck could Hal not tell Polly to stop dating Jason because they were distant cousins? If that’s really such a big deal? (Sidenote: It’s not)
  • Did Cheryl and Penny off Cliff? Wtf was that synchronized hand movement pointing Keller to the warehouse? (So creepy)
  • Did Penny know all along that her husband was a drug dealer? Did she suspect he may have killed Jason? Did Cheryl ? Hint: she wasn’t surprised at all when Betty called her
  • How the fuck does Jason resemble Archie? (sidenote: it’d be great if the Andrews clan were related to the Bloopers as well, that’d kill any B/arfchie completely, seeing as this distant cousin thing is still considered incest)
  • Who the fuck filmed the murder? (FP)
  • How the fuck did Cliff Blossom know about the small window he’d have to plant the gun in FPs trailer?  
  • Why the fuck did he torture Jason?
  • How much of FPs confession is true? (I’m guessing the part about freezing the body and then throwing it in the river later is since it was corroborated by Joaquin and also all the scenes we were shown in flashback - Jason meeting him and him torching the car)
  • Wtf are the Blossoms hiding in the east wing?
  • Why the fuck did Cliff have all those wigs? (and I need a better explanation than one for every mood)
  • Who the fuck told Hiram about Fred and Hermione?
  • Who the fuck was Jason supposed to deliver the drugs to?
  • Wtf was Cliff paying Hiram perpetuity for?  
  • So was the ghost of grandpappy Blossom with his throat slit (the one that caused Cliff’s hair to turn prematurely grey) actually the ghost of Grandpappy Cooper, previously Blossom, now Blooper?
  • Does the maple syrup business not exist at all???  
  • Has Juggie been suspended from school? (Fuck you, Weatherbee!)
  • Has someone told Gladys Jones that her husband’s in jail and her son is homeless living on charity in a place where he’s not wanted? 
  • When is FP getting out of jail?
That face

Okay so Joaquin didn’t follow Kevin… even though he’s suppose to be finding out information… Joaquin was happy to see the police there… he showed up late to the dance… later then Veronica and Archie.. did he plant the gun in FPs house? Was that his way of cutting ties with FP? Is he finally done being his bitch? Even if FP didn’t do it.. Who’s to say Joaquin isn’t finally convinced he did? Maybe he’s done hiding evidence for someone he thinks is a murderer…

gun sounds in modern games are so much better than they used to be the last decade. ten or more years ago, the guns in fps games were like KEW KEW KEW but now they’re like BLOOF BLOOF. a lot smoother.

Bullet leaving barrel at 1 million frames per second.

The velocity with which the bullet exits is known as muzzle velocity. It is around 1000 m/s on average. But higher muzzle velocity is also acheivable.
