[ red_a02 ] Shuzhen – The first episode was a lot of fun, cos it had an interesting cocktail of sexual tension and smooth fight choreography. This episode is like the awkward aftermath...

[ vermilion_2 ] YAPX – I understand that most of your stories are dialogue-based and heavy on retorts and counter-retorts. This one felt unnecessarily circular. It starts with a cool premise: a killer/villain/vigilante uses Lent to swear off something that should be second nature to him (I suppose), and then talks about a story. The link between the two (giving up killing & the story) isn’t a 100% fit. Maybe instead of “let me tell you a story”, it could be “hey, you see I even passed a guy up for death today!” or equivalent. Something to drag Lorelei into the banter and the premise. // That’s my only complaint. I’m not a big fan of dialogue-based stories, but I can make a exception for this.

[ 130204 ] YAPX – Good pace, good characters, great dialogue. The thing I like best is a combination of the three: how you build up their pseudo-relationship through all that back-and-forth exchange. Somehow, you craft a unique, strange relationship: from any one point in the story, both of them are manipulative, victimised and hypocrites - though not all at once. // On word choices, I felt you could change the word “janitor” (“cleaner” or “uncle” would’ve given a different, but more acute local flavour to it). Mostly because, it’s connotes an added level of difference through: class. Whether or not you intended it, by portraying the “janitor” and “student” you bring out the fact that he’s stuck there socially in all sense of the word. It made the part where he says he reads books during weekends completely out-of-context and weird. // Also, there’s too much “sliding” in and out of the room. Not sure if that’s intentional repetition, or just a lack of other words. // I thought that the girl’s own background is pretty compelling. Even after everything, I can’t tell if she’s speaking the truth. Because I’m all for unreliable narrators and characters, I can still find her well-thought out. But other readers might lose patience or wonder at her sudden change of heart at the final moment.

The combination,, along with a chainsmoke of nicotine,, makes for a surreal experience.
I’ve just finished putting up a journal thing for SoCelia,, and I have to update that EA.com/Origin has declared cancelling UO2 in favour of focusing all their efforts on UO.
I find that rather charming. The corporate culture there must be truly fucked. Sometime a year or two ago,, they cancelled all projects ((including the fabled Privateer Online)) in favour of UO and UO2. Then they went and fired everyone,, including Lord British. Then DD,, Dupre and some Wing Commander guy left for Verant ((the three are currently on Star Wars Online)).
UO2 itself is a total joke. From the partnership with Todd McFarlene to the whole name change every month with an E in it trip. Last I heard you were randomly assigned a gender per account and couldn’t change it. Sure,, if they had rushed it imcomplete to market ((as they always do)),, it wouldn’t have failed. At least no more than AC can be considered a failure. But it wouldn’t have been a success either. Rather amazing that the big bad 3x3cs took so long to figure something that every gamer already knows.
I think Maxis is the only company surviving under EA’s yoke. Origin is empty,, Molyneux left. For a games company that screws up games,, it’s amazing that their stock is doing so well.
Oh yes,, all facts presented here are off-the-top-of-my-head. Rumours are more fun,, anyways.
Update :: The shit hits the fan in UO.
