Link and Zelda are ultimately reflections of the players themselves, and each time we revisit them they’re less archetypes (the hero and the princess), and more characters who experience doubt as much as anyone in the real world. Because Breath of the Wild depends so heavily on players’ personal choices, when Link develops over the course of his adventure, so do you. There are countless chances to wander or to rush to the point, to fight or to avoid conflict. It’s not a parallel that can be replicated in any other medium because no other medium relies so completely on its audience’s immediate decisions—and in Zelda, a world in perpetual adolescent flux, that feels particularly apt.
I guess to illustrate my point about BotW, I’ll talk about one of the quests - there’s a part in the game where you can’t continue until you have 20 lightning arrows. The NPCs helpfully tell you there’s a monster at the top of the hill that shoots lightning arrows, and you can scavenge them from around his lair. There’s the assumption that you’ll go either sneak around and collect arrows up there, or even kill that monster and return with all his arrows.
I simply teleported to a town, bought lightning arrows, and returned. The game continued without a pause. I didn’t have to fail fighting the lightning guy 100 times. In other Zelda games, I would have been railroaded into fighting the lightning guy. But in this game, the Hard Zelda Game, I could choose not to go fight him.
Ultimate player control, multiple (multiple) solutions to any given problem, optional challenges. No abrupt bottlenecking where you’re not allowed to keep playing the game you bought until you mastered some tiresome un-fun mini game. All of this = great fun.

i agree with this completely but ALSO he’s the kind of guy that faceplants bc he tripped over his shoelaces when he got too excited abt seeing a dog and also listens to bubblegum pop religiously and probably sprained his wrist dancing to carly rae jepsen when he hit smth accidentally and definitely screams when he sees a spider
Before I begin my unsolicited recap of the episode, I beg you to please excuse the disorderliness of the piece and lack of direct quotes. I’m at work at the moment and I can’t fact check the quotes right now, so this post is pretty much based off of my impressions of last night and general scrolling through Tumblr. Please excuse the following incoherent jumble of thoughts.
Ok. First impression, Fire Beast Castle is straight up sinister. It gives me the creeps. It’s all dark and brooding and I don’t know how those poor Targs of Valyria the Old were holed up in there for 100+ years. I would have gone crazy.
D is headed down the path of insanity and I HAVE NO REGRETS. Her little speech to Varys was vaguely threatening AF. Be my dude and bow at the altar of my greatness, and you may live. Poison me like you advised Good King Bob and I will feed you to my dragons. Tell me, o readers, is this what one calls a kind, benevolent, and just queen? It’s becoming clearer and clearer just how opposite Jon and D are. One is, like I said, just and benevolent, and the other is ruthless, power hungry, and much much much too self-confident.
I gotta say, though, I have a soft spot for wise old ladies, and I loved the little conversation with Olenna, and how she inspired the great and mighty Mother of Dragons to listen to her sage advice. Ignore the men and you’ll survive. Advice that I wholeheartedly agree with, though at this point, I’m kinda rooting for D to disregard said advice because *whispers*I don’t want her to survive. There. I said it. Make it quick, GoT Fandom. I don’t want to suffer.
And don’t even get me started on the Lady Mel’s sudden appearance! Did you see how D’s eyes light up when she hears that the prophecy may not necessarily be referring to a prince?? That lady is headed down the rabbit hole and I am here for it. And D, from one gal to another, you are NOT Jon Snow’s QUEEN until he kneels to you (which I hope and pray that Jon will not be stupid enough to do). He has his own kingdom and until he decides to proclaim you as such, you really need to get a hold of that self-titling obsession you’ve got. It’s not pretty.
Ok, but GWxM killed me. KILLED ME. “I have one weakness” ahjdhflhlsfhlgsjlgsjlgjslg. But to be honest, you know how it is when you play the Game of Thrones. They’re both basically walking corpses now :(
“In Essos, her brutality is already legendary. She crucified hundreds of noblemen in Slaver’s Bay. And when she grew bored of that, she fed them to her dragons.”
Cersei, pal, I never thought I’d say this, but I agree with you, lady. I agree with you! This woman knows of that which she speaks.
@heathergee25 has a Tarly theory that looks to be on the right track. Go check it out!
Otherwise, idk, bored.
Ew, Samwell, ew. That scene was basically me browsing through another window on my screen while crackling flesh and unholy grunts made their way through my headphones. Poor Jorah and his love letter to his Khaleesi.
But I love the fact that, as JBW pointed out, bookish, shy Sam was never good at anything, yet here, in the library, here he finds his battleground, and I firmly stand behind all those underappreciated BTS players who ultimately save the day!. Sam “I killed an actual White Walker with a blade of glass” Tarly is not here for your “no can do” attitude. Looking at you, Maester Slughorn.
My baby Arya is going home!!! Hot Pie called her pretty!!! I think that’s the first time in her life she’s been called pretty and she liked it!! And her face when she finds out that her beloved Jon Snow is now King in the North!! Damn you, D&D, making my baby Starklings just miss each other. Can’t say I’m surprised, though.
I don’t cry often when watching things, but I literally had tears of joy welling in my eyes when Arya spotted Nymeria and she let herself be petted. Man, that wolf if huge! And then, of course, when Nymeria backed away, my heart cracked just that wee bit. *sniffs* WHY?????
Somewhere in the Narrow Sea
I’m not one for battle scenes, so I didn’t really follow along. Sorry if that’s your thing. BUT, Yara and Ellaria get it on, obviously, mere moments before their ship is ransacked by Pirate Uncle Euron. Obviously. Never really cared for the Sand Snakes, so I’m glad they’re gone. And Theon. I don’t know what set him off, but that guy has some serious PTSD and that breaks my heart. Are you dead, Theon? Please don’t be dead, Theon. I have so many questions.
Saved the best for last. *rubs hands gleefully together* Let’s get down to it!
I’mma be honest here for a sec, we got wayyyy too few North scenes and they were much too rushed. I would be happy to watch an entire 8 seasons of just my Starklings home in their ice castle. But that’s just me.
Boy, they are really laying it on thick with the Ned/Cat parallels. They’re not even trying to be subtle at this point. The first scene begins just the way the Ned/Cat scene begins in S1. An arrow hitting a target with the lord and lady figures looking down from on high. I swear though, that’s a scene straight out of a Jonsa future-fic. Mother and Father gazing down proudly as their Stargaryen babies become the best archers and swordsmen in the land.
Jon looking to Sansa for her take on Tyrion great and if you still think StarkBowl is an actually feasible possibility as cast and crew love to claim, just watch the episode. You’ll have no doubts whatsoever.
Ok. Meeting scene. I know that we all may not agree with Jon’s decisions all the time, but he is just, benevolent, and decisive. All good things in a king. Now, if he would only listen to his platonic-hot-sister-wife-hand-queen, that would be even better.
He makes his decision with listening to the dissenting voices and you know what, I understand him. “The North is my home. It’s part of me and I will never stop fighting for it, no matter the odds”. Jon has no desire to meet D. He has no desire to bend the knee. He needs the dragonglass and that is the one and only reason why he is going south. Sansa knows that he needs the weaponry and the army that D can provide. She knows that the WW are the biggest threat right now. But she protests because she’s SCARED. The last two times that the Starks rode south, they never returned. Also, kinda awkward that one grandfather roasted the other one. Oops.
But that look when Jon turns to Sansa, looks her straight in the eye, and says “I will accept”, did me in. It’s like no one else exists in the room and Hubby just asked Wifey for her consent in their secret married language. But what absolutely killed me was Sansa’s face when Jon leaves her the North. Props to Sophie and Kit, you guys, I have no words. Sansa haters will say that this is all she wanted, for Jon to leave her in charge to do with Winterfell what she wants. I say no. Sansa has been through so much, and as another blogger pointed out, they both have been constantly told that they know nothing. To suddenly have her experiences acknowledged and validated, and to be put in a position of trust by the ruler of Winterfell, I think that is the most gratifying, humbling thing she has ever experienced. And that all is clearly written on her face. Sophie, I love you.
One last thing. When Sansa gives her speech that Jon is abandoning the North, his people, etc, I SWEAR it’s on the tip of her tongue to say “you’re abandoning me”. I swear it. Fight me.
THE SCENE which I have literally been looking forward to since the trailer came out was everything that I could have wanted, and more! Jon staring teary-eyed at the statue of his “father”, LF creeping up behind him like the creepyfinger he is, muttering unnecessary nonsense about Cat and how she never loved Jon. Jon is all like “why are you here, tho. Go away, asshole”. And as he’s about to leave, LF let’s slip about Sansa. And Jon FLIPS OUT. My lords and ladies, let me tell you, LF had a suspicion and that suspicion was just confirmed. The most fascinating thing about this episode, TBH, was watching Jon’s face transform from calm, annoyed indifference to snarling dragon-wolf hybrid ready to attack. I mean, his lip twitched and he actually snarled! I am always here for baby Jon going all Crazy Grandpa Aerys when somebody insults his platonic hot sister wife. Always here. And that smirk on LF’s blue face as Jon exits the crypts in a huff, that man knows things.
Not gonna lie, super bummed that we got no formal goodbye scene, and Jonny galloped out of Winterfell way too fast. But I do have some thoughts on what we did get. That wave. Now, I don’t remember the Jaime/Brienne scene, but seeing the gifs floating around, yep, I agree. But what I got from that brief moment was that there was a general feeling of controlled, conscious restraint. Sansa agrees that it’s necessary for Jon to leave. But she’s freaking terrified, and I think that if she lets slip something more that a curt wave and shy smile, the whole dam will break loose and she’ll never recover. That’s what I got.
Ok, time to wrap it up. Thanks for getting this far, hope you enjoyed my ramblings, and tell me what you think.
Owning up to their mistakes, keeping it 100% real with friends, classmates, and professors, pulling an all nighter to cram because they promised a friend they'd go that party the night before, sitting at the front of the class to make sure they hear everything, even if it means the professor will notice every absence.
Complimenting professors, pretending to share their music taste/political views/love of dogs, strategically sitting in a forgettable spot in the room, bouncing off of others' ideas to make it look like they did the reading, having friends sign their name on attendance sheets.
Staying after class to ask questions, going to office hours, always keeping their hands raised in class, writing interesting, thoughtful papers even if they don't fit the prompt exactly, getting into lively debates with the professor during class discussions.

Bringing snacks to study sessions, holding hair back over toilet bowls, mediating roommate squabbles, always being ready to come to a friend's aid with homework or heartbreak, actually using group projects to learn efficiently, making new friends in every single class.

Gonta Gokuhara: -He is filled with so much anxiety on the delivery day. -“What if the kid doesn’t think I’m a gentleman?” -Once the baby is born, he is stunned and amused by how adorable it is and how small it is compared to him. -The baby smiles and coos at him when Gonta holds it in his arms for the first time, it feels very safe and secure in his arms. -His s/o will have to help him out quite a bit with raising the baby, due to his upbringing he doesn’t know too much about raising a child properly. -He loves to find new insects for the child and let them keep some of them as pets! of course not the poisonous ones, though. -If his child is male then he preaches to him about being a gentleman and makes sure he treats everyone with respect. -especially women -If his child is afraid of bugs then he is willing to help them get over their fear! -Is respectful if his child is not interested in insects, though -Like Shuuichi, he has a problem saying no to his child since he is too nice.

“Shut up, he’s a love-struck young child.”
Minhyuk was saying, and that was all it took for Changkyun to take off his
headpiece and slam it down on the counter, switching his computer off. Fuck
them and their dumb conversations. He didn’t care how much they’d yell at him
about it the next day anyway.
wrong?” He glanced up tiredly once he saw you enter, “Something about love?”
“Ugh, not you
too.” He groaned as he saw the teasing smirk on your face, “Leave me alone, please.”
“Aish, you’re so
cute.” You poked his cheek lightly, giggling, “You’re such a sore loser too,
quitting on your team like that.”
“I’m not!” He protested, eyes wide, “Their
conversations were annoying me!”
You rolled your eyes, before setting yourself down in his lap nonchalantly,
making his eyes bug out with his hyperventilation, “You’re so cute~”
You leaned down,
pecking his nose affectionately, before placing one more—deeper, gentler—against
his soft lips, giggling when he chased you desperately for more.
“You can take my
mind off it?” He offered, and despite knowing how cheesy it was, you nodded,
with a cheery grin.
“Anything for my
sourpuss.” You teased, shrieking loudly as you clambered off his lap to escape
his tickling fingers, “CAN’T CATCH ME, HAHA!”
“Get back here!”
Changkyun yelled as he chased you, “Aish, Y/N!”
everything, the house was filled with your giggles for the rest of the day. He
could deal with Minhyuk later, after all, because spending time with you was
always worth the annoyance.
Good wood - straight out of a scene from Mad Men, vintage styling makes this drinks cabinet come record player the ultimate in classy accessories for any discerning retro fashionista. Introducing the rather delectable ‘EGB2’ console from Luno.
The masks that the player can unlock throughout Hotline Miami are vastly different in terms of of their usefulness for different kinds of players. While masks like George will let the new players see more of their given surroundings at any one time, Charlie or Zack, who give more melee weapons and extend your score multiplier respectively, may be more useful for more experienced players. But ultimately, the masks are meant to augment the player, with the acknowledgement that some are blatantly more useful than others. Thus, it’s up to the players to determine how they want their experience to go.
Can undead taste things? Or smell things? Or get drunk or a high?
same answer lol
there are undead characters in the game that are depicted as drinking (though it is also stated to “not be the same anymore”), and outside of the usual cannibalism undead seem to have a fondness for mushrooms. there’s evidence in game that geists can and do poop (frequently), there’s written scourge smut implying some level of sex drive, their wounds are capable of scabbing, they are capable of sleeping but it’s not necessary, and Acherus had its own cook who even penned his own little mess hall guide about zombie eating etiquette.
a lot of those examples are presented as humor, but i’ll take them. it’s ultimately up to the player if their character can experience the various senses and bodily functions. my DK can’t smell, taste, or feel touch. my necromancer can experience everything.
the only thing the same across the board is that, as far as feeling and senses goes, everything is more dull than when living due to the fact that their souls are improperly attached to their body.
As Game Designers, we have a responsibility: To create an enduring, fun, and captivating experience for our players. Within that experience we can pursue various mechanics or stories to elicit emotional or satisfactory feedback from our players, but ultimately we have something to keep in mind as well: our livelihood.
Game Design is a career, it is an industry, and as a result we have to encourage players to play our games so that we can earn an income. The question I ask is… can we create ethical play when we are trained to keep a player engaged ( / addicted) to our games?
How long do we expect players to sit and stare at a screen to play our titles? Is 30 minutes enough to make a profit? 1 hour? 4 hours? 12 hours? How long should our loops be? How far until the next save point? Is a 2 hour cutscene too long or a 3 hour boss battle asking too much?
Ultimately, do we exploit our players’ health for our own profits? (A secondary argument: It is the player’s choice how long they play a game for)
Some games are coming through that are mindful of this (ie Pokemon Go), and some companies run health awareness messages before their games begin, but on a whole it is not part of design and it is important to keep these things in mind. Are we encouraging unhealthy and potentially damaging behaviour? Can we develop systems within our games that reward our players for taking a break?
I believe ethical design should become common practice in game development and could be harnessed to create engaging experiences that encourage our players to upkeep healthy habits.
