I’m so lmaoooo @ the battlefront pics of reylo, like hahaha whatever they do they keep dressing similar??? i just find that so humorous, just imagine you and your ‘enemy’ keeps showing up in similar outfits, hilarious.
Even though I don’t think Hyde was the biggest fan of having his name knitted in large letters on the front of a sweater, the smile he gives Kitty really tells ow much he still appreciates her making him something big like this in such a small amount of time.

Legend says the first Dayne was led to the site where he built Starfall when he followed the track of a falling star and there found a stone of magical powers. The fame of House Dayne largely rests on their ancestral greatsword, called Dawn, and the men who wield it. The blade is said to be created from the heart of a fallen star,
I saw Steve and Bucky at the wawa yesterday. They were buying tastykakes for their boyfriend, Sam Wilson and wanted me to tell you that if you don’t start treating him better Bucky will never be in a movie again.
I live in a house with a couple roommates, and one of those roommates has a pit bull. The pit bull, like all animals, has a mind of it’s own. It can be hard to get the pit bull to do what I want it to do. It can be hard to get a lot of animals (or people) to do what you want them to do.
NPCs in video games aren’t animals. Behind the graphics, they are weird math problems, and the controller is a weird calculator. If you can give them a certain value they will provide a certain result. Provide an undead Nazi dragon with the value of a chainsaw bazooka blast and it will provide you the result of dying.
The Last Guardian makes bold decisions that create a mind blowing illusion: Trico doesn’t feel like a math problem. When you play the game it feels like Trico has a mind of its own. Your actions, the values you provide, don’t seem to yield consistent results from Trico. Trico doesn’t feel like a party member to command or an item to be used; it feels like Trico is an animal. It’s infuriating when Trico won’t listen. Animals in real life can be infuriating.
But, when Trico shows it cares about you it feels real. It doesn’t feel like you provided the right values; it feels like you provided time and effort. When you and Trico are successful it doesn’t feel like winning at a video game; feels like a friendship. I know all I’m doing is providing values to the math problem that is Trico. I know that it’s an incredibly complex math problem, and it changes based on where Trico is in the game world, but it feels like bonding with an animal.
People have certain expectations from video games. The Last Guardian doesn’t fulfill many of those expectation. Primarily, it doesn’t provide short term satisfaction. People didn’t know what to expect when this game came out, and they didn’t know how to talk about it. It’s not a puzzle game, an action game, or a platformer. It’s a pet simulator, and it’s the first of its kind.
When Dark Souls came out it didn’t necessarily seem like the greatest game of a generation (I think it’s definitely up there). Dark Souls used its difficulty and cryptic nature to hide that it was math problem, and it created the illusion of a great terrifying journey. Immersion in this illusion had a cost; you needed to spend a lot of time playing the game.
The Last Guardian is the same way. Once you’ve spent enough time playing the game, and you know how to approach it, the illusion is breath taking. In the years to come people will talk about The Last Guardian in a different way, and the people who play it latter will know how to approach it. Time will be very kind to The Last Guardian.
Side note: I’m writing a lot on Tumblr, and I’m working on a novel. If you’d like to keep up with me follow this blog. I appreciate all the support I’m getting from this community.
