Wracked in the Wasteland Part 4: The Island
I had to take a break. So many deaths. It was becoming work to keep progressing in Survival. I’ve come to accept now that occasionally I will be behind the power curve and the enemies will stomp me into oblivion until I catch up. I know this now.
After I took a week off, I wanted to dive right in (pun intended) to the Far Harbor content. I died a few times making my way up to the North East corner of the Commonwealth, but that’s to be expected at this point.
Once I finished the introductory quest and boarded the boat to Far Harbor, I was blown away. You’d think after almost 200+ hours play on a game, there is no DLC that could impress you or hook you the way the game did when it was brand new. I was totally wrong. The aesthetic. The vibe. The fog. Far Harbor sucked me right in.
I don’t want to totally spoil it in this entry, but Far Harbor is about a conflict between the Children of Atom and the humans of Far Harbor. The synths of Acadia seem to be in the middle, at least when you first get to the island. There are a lot of twists and turns to the plot of the DLC and I really enjoyed it. This entry covers the first half of my adventures on this foggy island.
Mary Jane Watson joining Bendis’ ‘Invincible Iron Man’ supporting cast
Mary Jane Watson is joining the pages of…Invincible Iron Man? Hey. I don’t know. It could be cool. Marvel certainly seems to be shuffling around the status quo post-Secret Wars, and there’s every chance the new deck (is this metaphor crumbling?) could be dope. What do you think.
New York Times: New Apple TV to focus on gaming
I’ve been thinking about an Apple TV lately. Not for any good reason. Because I’m a technology glutton, and playing with new gadgets is fun for me. But even though I’m both a) a gamer and b) thinking about an Apple TV, I have to confess that the fact that Apple is focusing on gaming with its newest iteration doesn’t make it any sexier to me. How about you?

Kristen Bell Returns to Assassin’s Creed II For More Voice Acting, I’m Seriously Foaming At the Dong
Kristen Bell is a bit of a hot button topic for me. Why, you ask? Because every time I see her, I become convinced of two things:
- If I could just meet her, I’d probably be able to persuade her into dating me. I’m witty, not completely ugly, and I would be willing to wait on her hand and foot. Plus, she dated that dillhole Dax Shepard.
- She is the penultimate nerd’s wet dream. She’s cute, she has a hell of a body, and she starred in a movie about Star Wars, and used the word “frak” on her television show Veronica Mars
Well, Kristen Bell did voice acting for the game Assassin’s Creed. And now apparently she’s back to reprise her role as something or someone or some such in the sequel. Yeah, I didn’t play the original. But! I’m meaning to, since I’ve heard the sequel is like, you know, like the original except improved in every way. Here, let’s hear Kristen talk about doing some voice acting, and just nod our head and not really care about what she’s saying, so awed are we by her presence:
“As an actress, it’s both challenging and rewarding to play a complex character with this great mysterious background,” she says. “I’m very happy to be Lucy once more, and I look forward to fans discovering more about her – they will be pleasantly surprised.”
Uh, yeah, that all sounds great and amazing. Wait, what were you talking about?
