Colin: Aye, isn't that what you always say? If it's just meant as a short story, it doesn't matter if it turns out bad? Something to that effect? That it's 'your' short story?

Semi want to start a Running Review thread for Fowl Twins....but partly lazy and partly worried about incurring spoilers.

Have a hankering for Uncharted. Not a full, break-out-the-games hankering...

I'll save that for New Years. Tis tradition.

So I started replaying Mafia II - if for nothing else, the fifties era cars and music is worthwhile. I'm convincing myself it's a "Christmas" game since the first third takes place in winter times.

Hm. That makes it sound like it's dubious and borderline bad. It's a good game, just basically what you'd expect from a game titled as such. The usual, violence, murder, cursing, explicit...actually, there's nothing overtly explicit I don't think. Just a bunch of angry dudes with bad Italian accents.

Anyway, so in my travels across the sprawling city of Empire Bay (aka San Francisco), eluding local authorities, my car experiences the terrible misfortune of crashing and leaving me motor-less.

Now naturally, we can't have that, so I approach the nearest vehicle and kindly request the citizen to permit me usage of his vehicle.

He responds by uttering a frightened yelp....then proceeds to scornfully advise, "Watch where you're driving!" as I peel away, nearly running the guy down.

...this happens a few times.

To be clear, the citizens are all okay with this. I'm helping lead the police away from them so they can continue being bad drivers, running lights, speeding, etc.

Roxanne: Oh putain, is this another Assassin's Creed thing? Where you justified Ezio Auditorie in pickpocketing people as receiving 'protection' money from the 'corrupt' guards?

....why...uh, no certainement not, cherie.

Anyway, my point is, it's about usually the same guy screeching and yammering.

Thing is, the voice sounds familiar.

Not because I've stolen his car a dozen times over and he's frustrated he has to keep calling his insurance company to get a new car.

Like, I hear him cry out and have a little Vietnam flashback of being huddled behind a flimsy bit of wood or ancient stone that's being piecemeal blown to bits by evil mercenaries trying to kill me for some world-destroying artifact.

AKA, it sounds exactly like Nathan Drake of Uncharted.

I do some digging (a quick roulette on Wikipedia) and learn Nolan North indeed does provide voice work for Mafia II as well as for another character.

TLDR - Nathan Drake is in Mafia II and I knew it just by his incoherent screams.

Like...is it bad I recognized it as him just from his cries of terror and fear?

And now was subliminally brainwashed into thinking of Uncharted and gaining the desire to play it again?

I suppose it's only natural...I've logged hours and hours of Uncharted with Nate hidden behind cover - especially during my Brutal Run Saga.

Roxy: *slyly* Sure it's not a subliminal message to finish your story? I hear the duck and kangaroo are cracking down on that.

Here's another poem for you lot

Ravish in your eyes, shall I
Another pirate to sail the sky
Conquer the seas and live as we please
Here and there we go with the breeze
Eventually landing in the land of wine
Lower the sails and enjoy the time

Infinity beckons across tomorrow
Reaching my endless sorrow
Eternal agony sinks to my knees
Never reaching the tall trees
Ending another charade of Aphrodite

*humming*
once I loved...and once I learned
Love is weakness, love will leave you burnnnned

Down with love, down with hope
Don't need blind faith to cope
Or inspiring songs in my heart
Got the magic I need for my darkest of deeds
Love at times can entrance,
But love doesn't stand a channnce!

Random questions and dirty answers
All these wily words and whispers
Can't abide this feeling inside
How can I hope to stem the tide
Existing without you in my arms
Lacks any desirable charm

It's only me now,
Ranting and raving
Everyone else had to blow
Now who will I be saving
Eventually, we'll all be gone

Can't help but write this song
