Post The Sunday Papers

Sundays for waking up in Luton. Luton? Really? Yes. Luton is actually nicer than you remember. At least 67% nicer. I mean it. Anyway, Lutons aside, it's time for some words on videogames and things.

  • PopSci on Sniper Elite V2‚?≤s gory killcam: 'And that's part of the what makes Sniper Elite V2 so interesting. It is easily the most graphic, violent video game I've ever seen, but the violence is relatively realistic, not cartoony. The game has the dubious honor of humanizing Nazis more than any of the scores of WWII-era games, films, and books that came before it: these are not anonymous targets, dispatched from far away with the tug of the R-trigger: once you see testicles exploded, fingers severed, an artery slashed open by the force of your bullet, that you shot, from your own gun, you feel the effects of your actions in a way I didn't expect. The original idea might well have been to create the most extreme, violent period shooter ever made. Blood! Guts! X-rays! But the effect is the complete opposite. You're not yanking a cartoon ninja's spine out of his body with your bare hands, or stabbing a shrieking purple alien with a glowing light-sword. You're killing people. And that's a messy business.'
