Zoey or Gaige…?

Posted by spiii on November 4th, 2012 @ 17:41

Haven’t hit the level cap in Borderlands 2 yet? Wondering if it’s worth the time? If you like Diablo and FPS, you’ll enjoy the RPS approach to looting bazillions of guns (i.e. opening boxes) that is Borderlands 2. But don’t take my word for it—let’s compare heroines!

You may remember Lilith from the original Borderlands. She’s back in a cameo role, but Borderlands 2 serves up 5 new playable classes including 2 heroines, 1 hero, 1 robot and a dwarf.

Weapon of choice
Gaige with gun and Deathtrap
D374-TP “Deathtrap” robot. And a BA gun!
Zoey posed with pistols outs
Zoey’s trademark pistols
Legendary lunchbox
Legendary lunch box: 20% cooler with more pep!

Med pack. Don’t leave home without it.
Gaige minecraft skin
Minecraft caves, minecraft heads, minecraft skins and minecraft weapons!
L4D and hunter minecraft render
Is this is a mod?
The loots be mine!
Golden loot chest
It’s golden, it’s got skulls and contains treasure, me hearties!
Ammo pile
Did a boomer cough this up?
Best backstory?
Echo log 01
Gaige was robbed at the science fair! Echo log 01
Zoey in shock
He was a zombie, Francis! You sure about that Zoey? The Sacrifice comic
Gaige and Deathtrap
Did I mention deathtrap?
Zoey and Ellis
“I’mma reload!”

So is Borderlands 2 worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?)
If tickling an uppity worm again and again from different angles in the hopes it might drop a legendary orange item amidst the plethora of green and white junk loot is as important to you as it is to me—then yes!

Seven dwarves were offended in the writing of this post.

Zoey or Batman…?

Posted by spiii on December 15th, 2011 @ 23:10

Nana-nana nana-nana nana-nana-na — BATMAN!

Seen spiii playing nothing but Batman Arkham City and wondered—“is he gonna spend the whole Summer of Ben 2011 playing only one game?” Perhaps. But is it a game for everyone? There is only one way to find the answer—switch on detective mode, it’s time to compare heroines!

Weapon of choice
Whip and claws of Catwoman
This kitty has claws
Zoey posed with pistols outs
Zoey’s trademark pistols
Shoes make the man
Catwoman kicking a thug
Knee-high kickers
Zoey's shoe
The hunt is on!
Catwoman beating up a thug—hunter style
Catwoman is a hunter
Hunter pounces on Zoey
Zoey is the hunted
All tied up
Catwoman lashed to Batman
Catwoman ties ’em up
Zoey caught by smoker
Zoey is constricted!
Kiss the boys and make them cry
Catwoman kiss+trip fight move
Kiss + trip critical strike
Francis shocked as Zoey kisses a witch
Not that again!
Best in Lego
Lego Catwoman holding a whip and fishbones
Official Batman Lego and an official Lego Batman game

Minifig excellence—but no Lego game!
Best fan video

Stunt studio remake

Random quote
Arkham thug: [window shatters offscreen] It’s Batman!
[Catwoman walks into view]
Arkham thug: What the h**l?
Catwoman: Sorry to disappoint you boys. It’s just little ol’ me.
Francis: Hey, watch out for that Steam pipe.
Zoey: Man, I love Steam.
Francis: Yeah, Steam’s alright, I guess.

So is Batman Arkham City worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?)
If saying “I’m Batman!” every day to friends, family and social networks is as important to you as it is to me, then you are probably Bajo yes.

BF3 or Zoey…?

Posted by spiii on August 19th, 2011 @ 15:27

Seen are running a Witcher 2 special this weekend and been pondering do I want to play an epic single-player RPG choose-your-own-adventure type game? Worth it just to check out Good ol’ games awesome DRM and region-free online shop, imho. Still not convinced? There’s only one thing to do—time to compare heroines!

So is The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?)
If being able to play a game again and again from different angles until you finally figure out how you should have spent those skills to unlock adrenaline finishers faster is as important to you as it is to me, then yes 🙂

Zoey or Chell…?

Posted by spiii on April 24th, 2011 @ 23:23

You’ve heard about Portal 2. There really could be cake this time. But is it as good as Left 4 Dead? Let’s test the heroines!
For Science.

Test #1: weapons

Chell with portal gun
Chell with portable quantum tunneling device
Zoey posed with pistols outs
Zoey with dual (black) pistols

I had a pretty good life. But then you showed up. You dangerous, mute, lunatic.

Test #2: footwear

Chell sporting Long Fall Boots
Long Fall Boots—sleek, stylish and investment protecting
Zoey's shoe
Zoey shoes—unlikely to protect investments

That jumpsuit you’re wearing looks stupid. That’s not me talking, it’s right here in your file. On other people it looks fine, but right here a scientist has noted that on you it looks “stupid”. Well, what does a neck-bearded old engineer know about fashion? He probably— Oh, wait. It’s a she. Still, what does she know? Oh wait, it says she has a medical degree. In fashion! From France!

Test #3: likes

Chell hugging the weighted companion cube
Weighted companion cubes—hugs a’plenty
Francis, Zoey, Bill and Louis
Survivors—not as cuddly

Oh, good. My slow clap processor made it into this thing. So we have that.

Test #4: The Cake is a Lie

Weighted Companion Cake
Leela has made a weighted companion cake
Angry birds cake
Birds are angry this is no zombie cake

We’re a lot alike, you and I. You tested me. I tested you. You killed me. I—oh, no, wait. I guess I haven’t killed you yet. Well. Food for thought.

Test #5: Cosplay realism

Cosplay Chell
Where are the portals?
Cosplay Zoey
Where are the zombies? Oh right—ouch!

Remember before when I was talking about smelly garbage? That was a metaphor. I was actually talking about you and I’m sorry. You didn’t react at the time so I was worried it sailed right over your head, which would have made this apology seem insane. That’s why I had to call you garbage a second time just now.

Test #6: Best in lego

Lego portal
I think you need to grab the cube through the blue portal and…
Lego left 4 dead scene
Run or shoot? RUN OR SHOOT? BOTH!!

Okay. Look. We both said a lot of things that you’re going to regret. But I think we can put our differences behind us. For science. You monster.

So is Portal 2 worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?)
If being able to earn an achievement for dancing in front of a turret while shielded by a light bridge is as important to you as it is to me—yes.
