Just finished playing through Episodes 1 and 2
« on: October 04, 2010, 10:46:10 PM »
I'm not sure if I pay way too little attention to a game's graphics, gameplay, story, and music, or whether I pay way too much attention... Either way, I'm not very good at critiquing a game.

Nevertheless, Episode 2 was quite an improvement over Episode 1. I guess it felt more sandboxy, less linear, and more like King's Quest 6 felt, if that makes sense. I can't really describe it very well, but I like Episode 2.

In any case, I like the way the Silver Lining is going, and I hope you guys keep up the good work.

Aside from the language, I loved that movie. SO hilarious.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Me too! ;D  So many classic lines stem from that movie, most obviously the infamous red stapler.

That's immediately what I thought of when I saw our new buddy's username. :yes:

Oh, is it "merry"? I thought it was "married". Still great, though. :)

It's "married".  He's implying that the squirrels were having sex.

And the creative vulgarity in language is one of the tenants of that film's comedy.... without the vulgarity, it just doesn't have the punch of how frustrating life is inside a cubicle.  People swear - and they swear a LOT at work.

No, you don't have to like it.  But I fail to see how one can actually enjoy something without a major component of it.  It's like saying "Oh, I love King's Quest, except for King Graham."

I'm almost positive it's "merry."  On the DVD extras they interview the actor and he talks about what a funny line that is, and how it sums up Milton in one line. :)

But then again, apparently there's an online debate on this very subject.

I always thought he said "married". I never really questioned it until now. But I still think he says "married".

 ;D  I love that this turned into a debate about Office Space when it started as someone praising the game.

I should put something like "Queen of Wandering Off-Topic" in my sig. ;)

The language does help to shape the movie. I don't like the fact that it was so prevalent, but I do admit that it accomplished the purpose it was put there for.

Yup, at least people will understand how threads get the way they are when they see your sig.  :P

Vulgar language is everywhere nowadays, so it's hard to ignore it. Every time I turn on the TV, I learn that a new "word" has been dubbed "appropriate" for the airwaves. I can respect that people still feel like vulgar language is unnecessary (because it is for the most part), but it has taken a status of prevalence in our culture. Kind of hard to turn away something so widespread.
