where doing it man. where MAKING THIS HAPEN
So yeah, looking back now, I can't believe it took me till this summer to actually get into it, 'cuz it's frikken great.
Andrew Hussie is some kinda mad genius when it comes to foreshadowing and writing himself in and out of any and all story situations..
Here's tellin' you now, from my point of view, it's not for everyone. By all means, try it, but IMO, it's really not for those who can only handle super intelligent stories, realism, and .. sense.. Hell, you're gonna get lost several times over, worse than Primer even, don't worry, it all gets explained. There's a lot of time spent just dicking around too, but that's what I love about it, never takes itself too seriously.
But yeah, I love the character design, the quirks, nerdiness, and overall sense of fun the whole thing has to it. Just like my favorite game, Earthbound.. which is one of its main influences next to The Sims and Spore, among others..
It may take some reading for it to really grip you, most say it picks up the most around Act 4, when AH starts writing without the choose your own adventure input from the readers and takes the story into his own hands.
Personally, it didn't take that long for me, I realised I was hooked as soon as I saw the "Pogo Hammer" in action, so it's likely, it may have been even earlier..
Any other readers on this board?
I'm working on a Dirk cosplay for this upcoming New York Comic-Con and could use a critique.
