The Allegory of the Cave

The Allegory of the Cave published on 1 Comment on The Allegory of the Cave

I read somewhere that following U.S. on Facebook and Twitter may result in one “S. Spielberg” doing a bio-pic about you. I haven’t been able to substantiate this, but if I were you I’d opt for the safe route. Follow U.S., share U.S., love U.S..

Today’s blog will be full of awkward transitions–in the place of a clever sequitur I’ll be typing, “CHANGE PLACES” in all caps. Why? Well it all…

CHANGE PLACES

The comic is another Skyrim gag–so here’s the joke for the uninitiated, Skyrim is a beautiful complex and extraordinarily interactive world and the AI, for the most part, is very good. Though, and here’s the caveat, there’s a tiny, tiny oddity in the stealth system. As a player you can actually shoot an enemy’s companion right in the head–leaving a gurgling heap in front of them and they’ll basically shrug and go back to whatever mundane task they were up to before you stuck an arrow in their pal.

The lesson–suspend your disbelief, it makes for happier gaming.

CHANGE PLACES

You Say Yes!  In ColorA friend and reader of ours, Mr. Dark, sent me this colorized version of last week’s comic. To my knowledge, this our first piece of fan art. A sincere thanks and tip of the spoon to our Canadian mate.

CHANGE PLACES

Go read Lunar Baboon. It’s charming, clever, and totally hilarious. I think it may be written by my Canadian doppelganger as the his about page sounds eerily like–well, like a Canadian me. I’m a fan of this guy’s work. Well done space beast.

Cheers,

Jack
