it is everything i love about adventure games and detective games

petition for a modern Sherlock Holmes take in which:

  • Holmes is explicitly aroace.
  • whatever sexuality Watson is, either a.) he and Holmes are in a relationship, which is made very clear and definite, or b.) they’re clearly not and they get rightfully annoyed at people assuming/insisting that they are. 
  • if there are any gay jokes they had better be up to Captain Holt standards.
  • if Watson has an SO that’s not Holmes they get to be a significant character in their own right rather than a walking side joke.
  • re: that post about the way cocaine usage was viewed in Victorian England, if Holmes has a substance abuse problem it’s not a direct transfer of what he used in the original stories but a modern translation of that. which is to say, I want to see Holmes pouring 5-hour-energy into his fifth cup of coffee while Watson beats his head against the wall.
  • if Holmes has a mental illness it’s recognized and portrayed as an actual realistic mental illness. it is neither there to make him Edgy nor to give him license to be a jackass. 
  • Holmes can totally be a jackass but it’s portrayed as him, in fact, being a jackass, and he isn’t given free pass for it just because he’s Very Smart.
  • Holmes alternates, seemingly at random, between being charming and incredibly socially adept, and having no social skills whatsoever. 
  • Holmes disguises himself all the time, often for no real reason. sometimes these disguises are exquisite and sometimes they’re utterly terrible and unconvincing, but Holmes remains convinced that they’re all great.
  • Watson definitely threatens to hit someone with a chair at some point.
  • Irene Adler has a husband that she genuinely loves and does not get killed off or otherwise abandoned in the course of her story arc.
  • there is 0% sexual tension between Irene Adler and Holmes. Holmes loses the case because he writes her off as being inferior to him and consequently underestimates her. he learns from this mistake. or at the very least, Watson constantly reminds him of it. 
  • anything that was a factual error or case of science-marches-on in the original stories is brought up as a genuine mistake made by Holmes, as part of his whole I-don’t-need-to-know-things-that-aren’t-relevant-to-me shtick. (”he brought the snake here by whistling for it!” “snakes are deaf Holmes” “what”)
  • there’s no ominous buildup to Moriarty appearing. he literally just shows up completely out of nowhere just like he does in the original story. Holmes insists he’s been behind everything; everyone else is very confused.
  • either Holmes, Watson, or both carry brass knuckles. 
  • poor long-suffering Watson has to constantly point out to Holmes that Baritsu is Not A Thing, Holmes, you just made that up okay. 
  • despite being otherwise impeccably dressed, Holmes has a different stupid hat in each episode. none of them are a deerstalker though. 
  • modern versions of other detectives inspired by Holmes (Poirot, Nero Wolfe, etc) occasionally wander into the stories, but their appearances are never called attention to. they’re just there. 
  • at least one reference to The Great Mouse Detective is made. 
  • Holmes gets really into video games when he’s bored between cases. one story has a background plot of him trying to figure out an adventure game puzzle. he’s infuriated when he finally finds the (ridiculous) solution. 
  • Holmes has a fidget cube.
The Other Woman - Request

Requested by anon:  Hi i just read your latest Sherlock x reader and loved it ! Please could I request One similar where reader meets Irene when she talking to Sherlock on his chair but the reader sees how far she can push Irene by doing things with Sherlock in front of her !!
& @fourtyninekirbygamzeegirl:  I was wondering if you could do a Sherlock fic where he and the reader are close, but Irene Adler comes back around, ticking the reader off, but they get into a competition until reader ends up in Sherlock’s bed, both pissed to the core. Well, it ends in angry smut, but they need it more than anything. 
& anon: May you do another one where Irene turns up again and Sherlock picks the reader! 

Pairing: Sherlock x reader.

Word count: 1,828

Warnings: Smut - unprotected, angry - and Irene being an asshole.

A/N: This took too many surprising turns. Also, I used my favourite quote from Romeo and Juliet because it was fair and necessary.

Enjoy!

* <— If you don’t want the smut, reall until here. ;)

Sherlock was sitting on his usual seat, while (Y/N) occupied Watson’s couch. A heated debate was being held by the two, it was something about a pumpkin patch and another victim dressed in pink. They seemed to be absolutely focused on the topic, acting angry at the other’s suggestions as part of their game – yes, game – in order to keep the appearance of being focused on the victim rather than finding yet another excuse to spend time together.

“Maybe the dress was blue.” (Y/N) snapped, lifting her eyebrow.

“That doesn’t make any sense!” Sherlock exclaimed, but his fake anger was soon vanished by a smirk and a chuckle.

They’re happiness lasted two seconds more, because afterwards the typical soft moan that identified Irene’s text messages invaded the air. Sherlock and (Y/N) stared at his phone in silence. Sherlock didn’t know if he should check it, considering the kind of relationship he was hoping to achieve with (Y/N).

“Aren’t you going to read it, Sherlock?” A third voice spoke from the door. Irene was there, wearing a tiny black dress that accentuated her subtle yet classy curves.

“Irene.” Sherlock whispered.

I suppose at some point I should ask what the Evil Within is about, other than a hot policeman with an ax. Wikipedia just confused me.

get ready baby I’m gonna give you all the full version of the story because I am bored and I need people to hop on the trash train with me.

I can’t believe I typed all this. It really shows how much I love you. Or mostly what happens when tumblr puts me in straight baby jail for reblogging too much joseph oda and doesn’t allow me to post for 20+ hours. 

The Evil Within — A serious story recap by Vale plz R&R

SPOILERS FOR EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE DLC

The amazing hero of our story Detective Sebastian Castellanos gets sent to the Beacon Mental Hospital to investigate the usual “oh no the radio is mostly static *bzzz bzzz* someone help *bbzzz bzzz*  of course we are not getting all killed *bzzzzz* *high pitched noise* *radio silence*” kind of problems that you always find in survival horrors games.

And of course since he is such a hot dad™ (I am not mocking he is actually a dad also hot in that kind of average game protagonist way) he needs not one but TWO amazing sidekicks to ship him with do all the job for him help him in his adventure.

Every Nancy Drew PC game ranked from worst to best.

So! Ever since I completed the tedious undertaking of ranking all the Nancy Drew suspects, I’ve had people asking me to do a comprehensive ranking of the games themselves (like two people, but that still counts as people). And if you trawl my tumblr, you can see I have been promising to do that exact thing since 2012! So here it is, finally.

Standard disclaimer applies: these are my opinions and my opinions only. They’re completely subjective and based on my own personal likes and dislikes. There are games I hate that I know people love, and games I adore that I know people can’t stand (lots of them, even!). I in no way claim this ranking as definitive. You do you.

Oh, and Dossier games aren’t included, and spoilers for everything, obviously.

Edit, June 2015: As I’ll update this every time a new game comes out, expect changes to occur. I’ll add some liner notes at the bottom of the ranking to justify these adjustments.

With that out of the way? LEGGO BITCHES.

RPG Maker Fever Part 2

Warning:This article may contain spoilers and the content inappropriate for children…or may not contain.But get the children away from the screen just in case.

Are you reeeeady?!…Huh?What do you mean by “no”?In any case my RPG Maker Fever continues and now it’s time for my list of these notable games.You better check them out!

1.Alice mare

Alice mare is an adventure game with a bit of horror content and some heavy psyhological themes.It also has pretty many allusions on Grimm Fairy Tales(and not only them),and the game itself has their own dark-fairy-tale-atmosphere,which is supported by amazing visuals and good usage of music(which mostly consists from famous classical compositions).Also this game have many endings.

2.Kirisame ga Furu Mori

While this game was still untranslated I was very eager to play it.Well,I was able to do that now and I can’t say I regeret it.Puzzles may be  uninspiring,but story and characters are very good.And speaking of characters,I really like Suga-kun,the way he protects Shiori kinda reminds of Garry and Ib.Man,that’s so touching*sob*.

3.The Crooked Man

That may not be the best Uri’s game(that’s only my opinion),but still a very good one.Well,the things I disliked about it the most are extremly long dialogues packed with unnecessary scientific terms and frustrating battles with the Crooked man.Aside of that the game itself is very well-made and has interesting story.Another good thing about this game is that the main character is a guy(and very nice one) and not a little girl(God,there’s too many of them).

4.Mogeko Castle

Mogege…Here goes another WTF-game in a list.It’s a story-oriented adventure game .The thing you’re doing most of the time is moving through the story with some action\chasing scenes included.But gameplay isn’t what important in this game-even without it this game is pure craziness.Where else you’ll see cute fluffy animal-like creatures who want to rape a high-schooler?Where’s Mogeko,there’s a nightmare indeed…

5.Corpse Party -Rebuilt-

This game is an enchanced version of a very first Corpse Party game.To be honest this game looked for me kinda poor.After playing Blood Covered everything seemed so simple comparing to it.But if there wasn’t an original Corpse Party there wouldn’t be a Blood Covered,that’s why this game is important to me.Besides,it was very entertaining to see how the story of Heavenly Host Elementary School has started.

6.Corpse party if Past End

Long time ago I’ve beaten an original CP if-beaten and forgot about it,‘coz it was nothing special.CP if Past End is a reaally huge step forward comparing to the original game.Everything was greatly improved-graphics,puzzles,level design,additional scenes and dialogues were added.It feels like another game-the game which is definetly worth of playing.

7.Seven Mysteries

Seven Mysteries is school horror-story.At first it may be a bit boring,but more you play-more interesting plot details are revealed.Besides it has very good usage of standerd RPG-maker resources(like sound,light-effects and stuff).Author of this game made a hard work and created a quality adventure-game.Additionaly I want to praise the music-I know it’s all borrowed from free resources,but still it sounds great in the game.

8.Happy Birthday

At first this game didn’t really catch my eye-I was a bad person,judging the game only by a mere appearance.It’s a very well-made detective game with the gameplay in the best traditions of Ace Attorney series.You investigate the crime scene,talk to withnesses and search for the culprit.Also this game has a great music.

9.Corpse Party D2:Depth of Despair

Like CP if Past End this game is another “what if” Corpse Party fan-game(but this time Ayumi survives the whole incident) and a great one I must say.While playing D2 I had a feeling of playing Blood Covered Repeated Fear-music and gameplay are organized just right,and character design is good-maybe the artist still has a room for improvement,but characters look a lot like themselves in BC RF and perfectly fit the game.I may sound cliche,but this game is definetly developed with love. 

10.Longing Ribbon

Aaand we have a WTF-game once again.Groovy!The greatest thing about this game is it’s horror atmosphere-beginning of the Longing Ribbon is very intriguing and even have some neat horror-scenes(to tell the truth to the end a whole plot turns into some complicated nonsesnse,but that’s another story).But despite being horror this game has a lot of easter eggs and jokes hidden in it,also it’s very fun to play,battles can be tough,but you always can skip them via cheat-code.

11.Moonlight Ghost

Finally,there’s a game where you scare people and not vise versa.It’s an enjoyable arcade'puzzle game,where your goal is to scare someone as much as possible,you can use various objects(like barrels,music-boxes etc)placed on the level to do that.Nice story and sweet illustrations are included.

Phew…that’s it with the second part of the article-soon I’ll write the final part.It’s getting late,so I’ll fix all typos and mistakes tomorrow…or not.W-wait,who turned off the lights?!Man,it’s pitch-dark in here.I guess the only thing I can do now is evolve nocturnal choroids…

The bidders’ greatest fears

Eisuke: Animals never being able to get along with him haha.  Not that he’d ever admit it, but to be utterly and entirely alone.

He’s been on his own for most of life, and he hasn’t even realized how lonely he really was until he met the MC. Honestly, I think the MC serves as his Living Emotional Crutch—without her, he’d completely lose it. It might be a bit of a stretch, but I’d like to say that he is dependent on her, and not the other way around, despite how their relationship dynamic is portrayed. If his character were written a bit darker, I wouldn’t put it past him to destroy anything that could potentially be an obstacle to them, trapping the MC in a poisonous, all take-no give relationship. In the most extreme case, he’d have the potential to be a yandere. Damn.

Soryu: Not being able to protect someone he truly cared about.

Time and time again, this is what Soryu would promise the MC each time their relationship would progress. Though to be honest, I think he’s trying to reassure himself more than the MC. Soryu’s the kind of person who lives religiously by a code of honor, and protecting someone he loves is number one on his list. If he ever failed to uphold that, he wouldn’t just be losing a loved one, he’d be damaging his most fundamental principles as an individual. Honestly, he would rather die than force himself to live with his greatest failure.

Baba: Being trapped in something he’d never be able to escape from.

Baba, being the adventurous and uninhibited person he is, enjoys freedom with a passion. He’s always doing one unpredictable thing after another to keep things interesting, and he prefers living life that way. Moreover, I think this is one of the reasons why he enjoys his job as a thief, besides fulfilling his childhood goal. If he were to be restricted in any way whatsoever, I don’t think he’d be able to handle it—especially if he wouldn’t have a way out. Being a thief, it is imperative that Baba have an escape route for everything. Not being able to escape from something is a huge blow to his sense of freedom as a thief and a person. In fact, I can especially see him avoiding lifestyles that require strict routines.

Ota: To be betrayed by someone he loved and trusted—again.

After being betrayed once by someone he trusted deeply, Ota had to create his angelic persona to prevent this from ever happening again. It was very difficult for him and the MC to start a relationship because his previous experiences always reminded him not to put faith in others anymore. I’m going to assume this is why he loves teasing the MC—his sly and sadistic personality aside, he constantly teases her to test her, to see if she’ll really stick with him or leave. If she ever betrayed him, he wouldn’t be able to take it a second time—he’d completely change as a person. Nothing would make him open up his heart to anyone ever again.

Mamoru: Being forced to kill someone he loved for the sake of the greater good.

He already lost someone important to him once, but being the one to end his loved one’s life? Hell, no. Being a detective, it isn’t unusual to assume that he’d one day have to choose between the greater good and the life of his loved one. If he ever got to cross that bridge, he’d be conflicted between his morals, albeit somewhat jaded, and his happiness. He may have lost most of his motivation as a detective, but Mamoru shows that he still has his principles intact. If the MC were put into that situation, she’d most likely ask him to choose the others over her, and that would destroy him even more. If he were unable to save either of them, he’d never be able to live with the crippling guilt of his decision.

Bonus:

MC: Not being good enough for anything.

Note: (I’m not talking about you as the player character, but rather the MC presented to us in the narrative)

As featureless as the protagonist may seem, there’s one trait of hers that constantly shows itself time and time again—her complete lack of self-worth. She criticizes herself often over everything she does, and the fact that she’s surrounded by the elite bidders most of the time doesn’t help, either. When she gets into a relationship with any of the bidders, she’ll often berate herself for not being pretty enough, smart enough, strong enough—anything enough for her boyfriend. I assume this is why she always withholds her needs from her partner and tries to overcompensate in the relationship. Her feelings of inadequacy, added with her nurturing nature keep her from asserting herself. I wanna give you a hug, MC.


… though this might just be me overthinking things. All of this is merely hypothetical, just-for-fun, fan interpretation. None of this is canon whatsoever. If it were canon, KBTBB as we know it would be one huge dysfunction junction.
