"Matt Op. I forgot that I wrote that it used by real name. I mean I just feel like that person just hasn't played enough bad games 'cause like if they think that this is unbearable like. I begged there is a world of games in which they should try. Yeah. Yeah. They're definitely games from this era that of age much worse than than than maniac match their hard even like understand what's going on. Or just punishingly difficult a heather demi. Moore. I mean I have one one other one. which is A single for a single line forum post. From Neo Gaffe in two, thousand six it is about an entire entirely different game. So the the post starts with I. Love This Game Ever since my dad bought the entire Lucas Arts collection back in the day I prefer to Salmon Max or even Monkey Island Maniac? Mansion sucks though. Just, an unrelated. Unrelated title Lucasfilm. Anthology and they're like, they had to take take maniac mansion down a notch. Wow. Yeah. There you go. Hey, it's time for the question. Block. All right. This one's from at Brett. Berliner on twitter Maniac Mansion is one of the first Games I ever encountered that had multiple ways to beat the game. What is your favorite alternate way to complete a game? I always thought it was genius in far cry four when the villain asks you to wait if you do you get an alternate ending. Yeah that's one. That's a I think that's one. That's that happens I m played this but I've heard about this happens very early in the game where you have like like you can just wait out him returning than if he does win immediately it just like kind of like new lover little. Easter egg ending but it's not really like a proper ending of the game. That's a good question. Anything come to mind multiple endings ones inter in in terms of how you get them. We talked about how to be big boss before in metal gear solid three. This is not the an alternate ending, but I was just reading today that there. There's a point early in the game where you can snipe him before even that encounter. So you could kill him very early in the game. If you're if you're quick enough do you mean the end was who? Oh Yeah, the end you you can kill him earlier even than that. As I love I, Love Shit like that I. Love when they're like you know what? kind of solutions that are discovered later I, it's not necessarily the one that I always think of in terms of different endings, krono trigger just because it's so it's so infamous and it's just it's got so many endings and they're all kind of A. Satisfying and their different ways although if you ask me to recall like how you trigger the different endings, I'd have to look it up because that's that's all kind of faded from my memory but is like I do think it's really cool when that stuff is in there. Anything come to mind Heather Kelly any any multiple endings? Well. Silence to has an infamous alternate ending where. I. Think it's just a dog at a computer. Through this like horrible horrible journey to just see a dog at a computer is kind of Kinda Great. It's not quite an alternate ending, but one of my favorite things in say demon souls is. Choosing a boss with bows and arrows that you're not supposed to have any business. Choosing your way through like it there's a there's a dragon on a bridge and you are definitely not supposed to go to the encounter like first thing like Blasio you with fire and typically you die. But you can stand just outside the range of his flames and like if you've just wailed on a bunch of like lower level enemies and have tons of money, you can arrow. Aero, the Dragon would like basic arrows and then he like clears out a path that you're not supposed to be able to clear until. Significantly later, I think that that kind of like branch breaking should count as alternate endings because it's like an alternate way to get to the ending. But also I'm just I'm fucking talking. and. I'm sorry. Why leave the question I just went by lights that tip we liked it. We all liked it. We all were happy. Okay. Okay. Great. Cool. Do. What I do is to the audience in your head yeah. Nonstop. You're doing. Great. Very recent example just in terms of structure but I think breath of the wild just like the flexibility of you can go you can fight Gannon at any time basically once you finish that initial plateau is I. I liked designs like that I think that's really cool. You can decide how much of the game you want to see before you get to end. And Develop Your Own Challenges Outweigh Kelly anything come to mind I mean any any by our game there's like A. Allies to endings right like for like dragon agent musician, you can like side with the majors or side with the templars which like. The templars you're a fucking. I don't know why you would ever do. and. Because like the majors are like we want to be free and do magic and the templars we WANNA stop that don't like. Or like I was playing and this is not a recent game but I played it recently and it was the Stanley parable oh. Yeah. Back game has like a million endings. It's really fun. I played it like for the first time like beginning of the year maybe twenty nineteen actually a time has no meaning. But. That came has a million endings and some of them are like so like weird and I love games that don't care about being super weird I love. Like. Yeah, this will be the strangest thing you play. We covered Stanley parable for the podcast earlier and and that was my first time playing. Yes. Similarly like I love just all the different, some things are just like completely batch it. There's one ending where you like are just basically taken into a museum about the games development. Ashley Meta and creative and also just like interesting to see. So. Yeah. I I fucking I've an eight that shit up..

"Don't even discuss this game much in public. Like is this. Out Ryan BG this game is maybe not for you. Then it's A bad review of like a podcast and they're just like I don't like people talking. Like. Well, this is not for you then I, don't think. I've got a review here from the steam store which. Is More reasonable a negative review than We typically read on this show. It's from Dylan you played for point seven hours. Dylan writes I get that. Maniac. Mansion was very important for video games as a storytelling medium at the time of its release I also understand that there are plenty of people who like to play Classic Video Games to better understand how the mediums developed or just out of sheer curiosity. If you're one of these people than you'll get out of maniac mansion, exactly what you expect to get out of it for everyone else especially those unfamiliar with just how primitive and unpleasant a lot of old video games can be. This game will be irritating exercise in ridiculous unknowable puzzle design and Finicky controls that you really just be better off avoiding altogether. Obviously, this isn't to say. Lucas Arts was a bad developer or that they could have done a better job of developing this game considering what tools were available in the late eighties. But I really don't think saying that this game is good for its time is helpful to anyone living in a modern day. Maybe this is fantastic for nineteen eighty-seven since that was more than thirty years ago. That means less than nothing to anyone looking to pick it up today I don't hate it or even think that its importance overstated but I do very much think that people who are playing it just now for the first time are going to regret doing. So again, that was written by Matt op Daca. Matt Op. I forgot that I wrote that it used by real name. I.

"I love it. It does call Israel cool looking. Isn't that guy? So and it also like shows. I'm sure you've played games in which your life these people do not care about what they were doing and last. Week this game people really cared and like you can gel in playing it and seeing that is really cool. I also I love. Look I get thx One, one, three, eight was like, okay. I he objects is the sound system in all the movies in the nineteen nineties and the thx sound was like, oh, it's thx. But like the code one, one, three, eight shows up in nearly everything that is like Lucas involved and it was really I was like, Hey, there's the code and enter it into a panel. Also, I feel like in Lucas Games or Lucas anything like if anybody asks you for a number like if you ever get sucked into the world and they're like, Hey, what's what's Your Dad's social security number? What's his last four digits always just say one, one, three, eight. The. So the the we mentioned that the the kids that you can play we mentioned the family, but the we should also talk about the tentacles. There's the notorious Purple Tentacle, and then Green Tentacle who is basically just an aspiring rock musician slash party dude who do you have defeated one point because he's a he's a Geez skating but then once you do that, then you can kind of interact with them and you just get this always. This kind of like lonely depressed guy who wants to make it big in the music business It's a I don't know I mean these characters really cool and then also they are present in the sequel day of the tentacle where the Purple Tentacle is the main antagonist of that game and and green tentacle. Again re is kind of party dude ally but I I love the tentacles and I think it also speaks to. Like the world building in the storytelling of just like Oh these are cool like these are cool. Unique characters that aren't just like generic aliens you know. Yeah. They were funny. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, everything had personality like even the even the kids even though they don't like say stuff the fact that if you choose one dude and you go up and try and play piano, you can't play the piano but if you choose punk girl. He can play the piano like that's. That feels magical in a game this old like it feels like. If I mean, if pacman talked to the ghosts in each of them had a personality, it'd be fucking amazing. Yeah. It reminds me of like. Even like recent games like where for example, like any of the Dragon Age. Games. If there's locks or something, you have to have a rogue in group. So that way they can unlock the lock and it's It's something that I feel like it's it's such a holdover from like DVD or something. That you they did originally, I talked about how they can Campbell the setting and story, and you know have their shared that that desire that ad map of everything on paper. But yeah, they were originally, they were conceiving this in its first form is like a pen and paper RPG, and so it does kind of have those elements of like all the characters having their unique roles in this story and their unique abilities as well because, yeah that also speaks to how you can ultimately win the game So I to me, I think the ending that's the the most fun is the one you get with Bernard who is kind of the poindexter stereotypical eighties nerd character who is able to? Fix a radio and then can use that to call the media or police the media police show up and arrest the media or in that takes you into the end game, which is just a whole really fun sequence and also just speaking to the level of care that went in and craft the went into this game is like you can call the media police they can. It takes a certain amount of real time. For them to show up. But also in that time, you can win in a different way and then the meteoroid police show up in that ending to also arrest the the the the your, which is just like, Oh, I love that they thought of it to that degree. There are also different endings based on whether Dave is the main characters alive or dead because kids can die in this game they can. Yeah. And.

"I fucking loved it. I loved it is veal I. Agree I think it completely holds up and I just familiar with this game. I, played this game in the past. They've never actually finished it until this this playthrough, but I will say that puzzle in particular that you're talking about the one where you get where you retrieve the cassette, you use it to record off of a phonograph like onto and then you play it in like Oh this you. Played in the third location as like that's such a well crafted puzzle and it makes a complete intuitive sense like there's not an aspect of it where you're just like once you figure out, you're like all why see what they did, which is like the the ideal I feel like in game puzzle solving or problem solving but Kelly let let's let's start here. Have you were used so reformer with maniac mansion prior to this prior to this episode I. Had never heard of this game ever wildlife. I did not know about it I had played other point and Click Games, and I agree about what you guys have to say about especially a lot of those retro ones which. It's Kinda clear that they're just like well, just because you can do something doesn't mean that a player is going to know that you can. Write like a Lotta Times. It'll be like, oh, you need. Well, of course, you had to get that piece of chalk and put it inside of this person's pocket and it's like well, did you like I? Don't know. But this game like there were was notable enough like if you turn on the TV, it has like we will publish anything and then has the address. So then you are like, okay, that's notable I don't quite know why yet but. Like depending on how you do things. You're like, okay, that's notable and then if you like. What is it? You send the demo to to to to is that ultimately you either raise her? Group and she's like the. Girl will. So here's the thing I was going to only choose girls, but then it made you go with that main character boy who was Jake Day Day. Dave the dead do not interested. I sent him into the House first and he did immediately get captured by the nurse lady with Jenna Edna. I'm GonNa tell you something I'm glad that you covered like what is the situation with this family because? The game, I didn't read a summary or anything else like I'm just GonNa go in blind and WANNA play this game. I did not understand anybody's relation to anybody like when there's this one scene where like what I thought was the GRANDPA is talking to the nurse and he's like daddy it hasn't been home for hasn't been to dinner in weeks and Teddy. Chicago and then he she was like. Don't worry about it and he's like an he keeps going down into the basement. Did you guys get that cussing? Yes. Yeah. I was confused by that. Yeah love and and just because you mentioned cut scene, we should note that this is that Ron Gilbert? One of the designers for this game on the the the The creator of this game and also created the scum engine with Eric. Will. Ron Gilbert and Gary. Winnick credited with this game but Ron Gilbert credited with coming up with the term cut scene did not exist prior to him. So it's A very like also just having cut scenes in of itself was something of an innovation for its air at least on the PC side. But yeah. So so Dr Fred Nurse Edna and Weird ed are your antagonists we're at is like the adult fail son? I don't and they're blue, they're all blue and gross. And and mean and nefarious. But yeah, you can get. So Davis like Davis. The character you have depict Dave is the character who is of your three. You can't play without Dave and then beyond that. He's the organizer. And his his girlfriend he's your rescuing from the basement. And then you've also got an addition that you've got razor the aforementioned razor. WHO's the cool girl I've got Bernard the NERD who is the only character who is present in the sequel? Of these characters day of the, tentacle? Game. I really love Michael the photographer Wendy. The aspiring author said the new wave guy and then jeff these surfer dude slash SPEC holy. Analog. And Jeff. and Dave or the two characters who don't have unique abilities that you let you finish the game. So like you know every other character has some way that you can actually solve everything. They're just kind of the ones who are just there to be warm bodies I guess. They can guard the mailbox. Exactly I think are the mailbox maybe thrown in the dungeon? I WANNA say. Playing this game, you get a sense of like the the sense of Mirth and play. That must have been present in Lucas Arts at this time, like you go into a room and there's a poster on the wall and you look at the poster and it's a star wars poster and you're like, oh, man, what a what a delight to be in this family in the eighties as computers are like coming into their own people can own them at home like. must've been a really magical time and also to indulge in making a game in a world where games hadn't been defined as like this is a game and that. Game and these are genres will just the idea that what go ahead I was just GonNa say reading speed on that note like reading about the origins of this game they you know rob run Gilbert and Gary when it came up with the setting in the story first, and then they were like, what game should what kind of game that should this be like they worked backwards from like the World Which? Is just a fascinating way to create something. It was also kind of touching on like when you mention the cut scene thing, I felt like this game was very unique in the point and click world in that like there were these cut scenes and then you had to quickly act because like you know the guy would be like I'm hungry the adult fail son he'd be like hungry. I'M GONNA go. I'M GONNA, go eat my dinner alone and then he would go down into the kitchen and at that point I, had already stolen all his food and so he gave up and I guess just went back to his room I don't know what he did but Like that or like the stuff with the package where? They deliver the package and he's coming downstairs and you have to either run to the mailbox or post someone up there So it was I thought that was really unique like it was like a mix of like real time having to do stuff and like just investigating, which was cool. There is a really cool a document that I would like to share with you guys in that. If you are listening at home you can You can look this up, but the design document for the game was actually shared as a poster. like you could get this poster that was a map of all of the different ways that you could move through the game, all the different locations and how they were linked to one another and it is an awesome awesome little.

"Also kind of got like a kind of fucked in that game because like my character you can choose like their personalities and stuff custom game. So my characters thing was like she would go to delos when she was like stressed out. So I did and then I got a venereal disease and then I, gave it to my husband and then I pretended I didn't know how he got it and I was like Oh. That's sad. And then it morphed into. And I was like divorce. It is a really amazing story generation engine like. Just the scope of that Gabe is really impressive. I want to pivot to to talk about a exile real quick because I was reading a little bit about the show and and and the description I believe I've got enough posts in here. Post post post Apocalyptic Gazette, correct. Yeah. I was going for like the area of time that like Horizon Zero Giancana lives in, which is like so far in the future, there's like some remnants of like technology, but it's you know it's kind of weird which pieces of survive in which having and it's still kind of like futuristic primitive sort of not like I, WanNa say like like. prepubertal times kind of but like technology watering times like waterworld, but on land. So land world or. The. Zelda one where he sales that's supposed both as a accoring of times I thought we no, we know the Wind Waker win way. There it is. Yeah. Yeah IT'S A. So. Yeah. It's funny like as you mentioned horizon because that's what I thought of when I was reading that description but but you know other than horizon or or or I guess including horizon like. Post Apocalyptic Games. You either drew upon for inspiration or just personally a fan of I mean zero. Don For sure I'm actually replaying it right now on stream because they did the A. P. C. Saleability for it and it looks very crispy So I've been I've been playing that on PC but I originally had played on ps four and the game is like one of my favorite like alloys like one of my favorite characters ever So yeah, like that kind of and then. Outside of video games, also kind of pollen from like if over the garden wall was like definitely for adults. So. Confusing. Dreamy. Right. But it seems like it's more. You're more like setting wise and more towards what you're. You're going for his less like the. Blue like it's almost like the like the point in which people have figured out how to survive and have started to rebuild. Yeah. Yeah. There's like a little. Little towns yeah. Thank you. Thank you. The anime equivalent would be Dr Stone for our listeners out there Dr Stone which I don't own that. Dr Stone is a show about I. Think thirty or forty thousand years in the future after all of society's collapse because everybody was turned into stone by like a meteor. And anybody who's survived and like kind of breaks out of being stone. Is either completely insane because they've been conscious for thirty thousand years or they retained their identity and they are forming a new civilization. But then you realize that there have been people who woke up like ten thousand years earlier. So there are civilizations. But it's all like super primitive and the main character has to reintroduce society to science. nobody has it anymore. So he's like he's like a high school kid and he's like teaching people how to do basic experiments and then they more and more complicated it's wow I dunno economy it's fucking trash but fun. Yeah. That's what I'm saying I'm GonNa Watch it. I don't know that I would go that far but her commenting on..

"It is a strange experience to play like only the New Year really of the series but he but like the I know that they are just like so heralded for their storytelling. Yeah and the characters and stuff for sure have have you played like? Other by aware like Fuck A. Dragon Age and those ones most of my bio were like I was an old school like like Baldur's gate bald. Guy When, yeah. That those are the those are the biowar-? Is I probably put the most time into but like a heather, how about you messed around with bio wears at all not? No not no. No, I didn't. Do Do do you ever because I know you're you're you're so into J. RPG's heather are you someone whoever messes around with western RPG I mean Sure that if we had a list in front of us that I'd be like Oh that one and that one there. But most of my gaming inclination is Eastern. Games I guess So I can't think of any off the top of my head like I'm like a Western. A western Western readiness I'm sure dad. I, loved. And I know like so my first serious foray into JR PG's was on fire emblem three houses. I. Fucking loved that game and now I'm like one hundred and ten percent on board and I like. Kinda went nuts and bought a lot of. A lot of games that have yet to play because I like to buy games and never play them But fire emblem is because firearm does the thing that I like with RPG's is like how can I get someone to like me and or fall in love with me? That's like my goal. and. One is all that that's your goal in all our bg's or just ones where that's the option because I feel like. There's some wasted time in in some of these others if you're. Going to tell you right now when did and. And and they were like you can't romance anyone I was like. Do you know why people like you? Why would you not do that? Sky Rim. There we go. That's your. Be Guira Titus Hell. I I still my only focus is like getting people to fall in love with me in that game though unfortunately, what is your? Okay. So what is your romance strategy like? Do you do? You just find a character that you're like? This is a life question. Advice for you. Asking is a married man how did? Those brooch me girlfriend. Do what I mean by that is how he like you are. Like. I'm flailing. How do you find a character you liken game and you respond to or are you role playing it a little bit and being Mike Character in game would go after this character Do you do? What is your or do you just sorta Kinda take it as it comes. I. It depends it depends on like what amount of role playing that the game kind allows you to do within the mechanics of the game. So like right like by aware games or like. A lot of games where your character is making choices with other characters. If that makes sense in those games unlike that, like I think of that character as me and I'm like, okay well I think that like this character is hot and also like kind of funny and like I really want. Honestly, a big part of it also unfortunately is like how useful is this person? Right. They just kind of useless. on a life like real life. So, like For example, like for mass effect I. Don't I think that the romance. Pretty dismal because like you can only choose like a nice but pretty boring her all or this girl who's like pretty racist against aliens or this guy that's like. A tow. He's like nothing he's like nothing person. So. Leisa podcast, we call that a nick. Come on guys I'm Josh. i-love-you I love a nick. Nick. But I will say like in Games like Chris. So I've been playing crusader kings three low. Yeah. I messed around with that a little bit and then it was just like this is GonNa, take over my life. I gotTa Stop Yeah I know it's pretty intense takeover life. Like. Like trying to you know I was like, okay I'm going to take over well so I do come up with ideas for what my character is. Right I'm like okay. So like she came from like from fucking nothing and she's going just tear everybody fucking down in unfortunately that game. Okay you know what? I was GonNa, say that I don't think as me but like I do think that if I were trying to take over the world my i. Thought four like anybody that's in my way would just be a murder plot because like. If, they're just like if they're not doing what I want them to do I'm like, okay we'll learn they just got to go. Yes. I want that I want that land or I want that whatever But as far as picking I guess, yeah, it's someone that like I via not by with that makes me very sad but like. Characters fighting..

Blake's got it I bring this up because I'm playing a rogue like I do like rogue legs a lot but this new game Haiti's that just came out. Yeah Kelly is gesturing. It's fucking great. I can I it's like the elements of robe-like design that I think frustrate a lot of people, which is just you know you you follow up a cliff and then you just got to restart and it's just based off of your own ability as a player to get further which some people like it's like it has. It you're you're you're making progress with every run in terms of both, your own abilities, a player, but also your character and also the world like the story of the world keeps expanding. It's it's really fucking. Anyway Haiti's check it out. But Hey We should formally introduce our guest. From Super. Bunch. On TBS in the Bod cast team creep she's also creator of the narrative horror podcast exile, which is available. Now, Kelly news is Back Hi Kelly. I. Don. You're nodding along when I was when I was talking, whereas Montel, logging on Haiti's or you playing Haiti's or you're messing around with bouts of play it because I think it also solves the problem that. I have with rogue lex Journal, which is horny enough and like. Is Extremely Horny. So. I'm like I'm ready I'm ready to play. What is horny about this rogue like? How I think like all the character designs like very. It's allow Bubis am big old balls and stuff. Yes. In a word the penises are perfect. Cool. I know you a Kelly. I. Know You Stream. What have we been streaming lately nonstop at Daylight Dude I've been grinding hard i. so basically like have deci because every time you prestige your survivor characters you get like a bloody. Piece of clothing. And the all it. Oh. I don't know if you would thrive playing it to be honest I feel like do you like to play multiplayer online games? No, I'm very I don't like. Scared. And then I yeah I. Don't like when people are mean to me. Okay. Well, here's the thing in DVD. They don't have chat so they they can't. They can type it you and you can see me in words said about you but you don't hear like a nine year old like asking you what you're posting smells like that. That's good but A. It's very chaotic. I liked him very chaotic and aggressively as a survivor but most people are just like I'm just going to sneak around and try and hide from the killer in like fuck up a generator and then hiding in a closet and then get caught and killed whereas I'm like. Racing forward and trying to sabotage hooks before the killer can hook somebody and like. I it. It doesn't go over well with strangers because people are like, what is this person doing? She's acting like very annoying and crazy in this game. But when you squad up with people that also play that way, it's very fun but I play I play like fifty percent of the time alone. With strangers who don't appreciate my game play. At all people are like, what are you doing stop? Are those like when you're playing online whether you're streaming or not? Is that like? I. Mean You gravitate towards that sort of you know squad based team based game. The kinds of things you like. So I used to be like you I was like I don't like strangers on the Internet I don't Wanna I only want I play video games escape from people yes and I was like God, forbid I have to interact with like a child on the Internet but I started playing. Well, it was partially for for Work Super Punches about a lot of more like mainstream games, and so I had to start playing like Fort Nine Valerie, and like those kinds of games I still like. Report night and more recently spell break I still only play Solo because I'm really afraid to have to partner with anybody like I'm like if I die, it's only me on the line is not like. Someone in Albuquerque is GonNa be really mad at me and like docks me or something like. Yeah, even even the. I've barely mobilise. There's there's no genre that terrifies me personally more than playing mobile because they just know the level of play is very high in those games are super competitive. There's a there's a steep learning curve. So I've only messed around with yours of the storm would just kind of dumbed down a blizzard mobile if people aren't familiar with it and even that game like I fucked something out real bad one time and people in charge like what are you doing the buildings and was just like, oh no. warned everyone's experience my hands just started shaking. Like having strangers ask you like, what are you doing? I don't know I don't play this. Same trying to learn. So. But normally, if I'm playing video games like I, think DVD is pretty much the only game that for fun I'll play with strangers right? I my favorite type of video game is like RPG's like I'm bio where trash. Absolutely. Like yeah. What are what are some like? What are your favorite? How would you rank them? Mass is probably my favorite and massive fact andromeda number. God. I've tried I have given that game many many chances many and I've played it so many times. Yes. I. Have Not brought myself to finish it I. Don't know maybe. Maybe the seventeenth time, we'll be the charm. I love RPG's and the mass effect series is one of those things that just a blind spot just because of when it came out I just never got into it. So the only mass effect game I've played his andromeda and plate at four this podcast, and so it's a very it's a very strange experience kind of the with our buddy Mark Rennie was on it as a huge mass effect van and it it is..

"And then I watched a walk through Oh and play through Amici got in this epic battle with the troll took like twenty nine damage and I was like huge omega. You just had to kill him. It is like it is because you can watch playthrough this game but you can also read a transcript which which is very different than you know games now bizarre. I feel like if you updated Zork for today. If you could like make text adventure where you could type any of this stuff almost the way that scribble notes which was ds game had you could right into it would become an object like. I feel like if you were to make Zork now how it would be so much fun to be like stabbed trolls armpit and thank you you missed but he's guarding his armpit now. Yeah I think that would be cool right 'cause like they have. They have bought that can like you can even have it be really really reactive because they have lots that can write movies right right so like you can have a that would be reactive to like basically you'd have it learned a dictionary and then like basically Oh wow that would be really cool. have a dungeon master but have it be text based would be so much fun. That'd be really show very cool dungeon master this. I've this again you like mine game aimed design ideas on us and how did this get played pod at twitter dot com that's right and HDTV not G. P. pod. Oh my God. That's just said it was correct. What am I doing. Did you get through the maze. Nadia did not get through the guy up that I watched that on fucking didn't not OUGHTA kill the troll went up and then he was just like out of the maze. I was like how I got stuck in that fucking maze trying to started. I mean again Ivy League. These were solutions that I as an idiot child other things where I was just like I have no. I have no idea and there's no way to know what the idea was even supposed to be as a kid. I was just like up yeah up after he saw that play through I I went in the maze again. I was like Oh just go on the amazing. Wherever you go just put up but you can only put up in a specific place I guess because I walked got lost kept. Thanks so many really wouldn't let me up into the maze on this playthrough. It's there's a lot I mean you get like. The this is a a this is a part of a maze of twisty little passages all alike and then if you hit any of the directions it's not the right when you just get that same thing repeated and you can turn around in there and the ad is it is a thing unless you can think spatially which. I don't know I can't do a great job of I need. I need to map out. It's very easy to get disoriented and then you go through and years basically collecting a bunch of different shit it and that's the that's the game you're just. It's an Indiana Jones thing. You're relic hunter. You're just you're just building your trophy adventure. You're filling your trophy case with a bunch of different shit before until until you can progress into Zork too and that's the end and leave decided. That's just your house now. Yes Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's never said explicitly that it belongs to you. You're like it explicitly does not in someone else's fucking lunch in there and they're probably really excited to come home and eat it garlic garlic and you're busy climate in their chimney uh-huh doors boarded. That's yeah it's not your house your house. Some Guy's going to get in there and be like. We're all my kids trophies. Ah me soccer you so when you go in the kitchen. It says there's a chimney down somewhere. Did you put down chimney. No it doesn't let you go down. You can only go up yeah. I put climb don't chimney and it was like what are you Santa Claus and ah only Santa Claus goes down chimneys and I was like but I can do is near so we're like oh uh-huh refunding these are like time capsule pranks and get burned from a programmer from nineteen seventy-nine yeah well. Hey it's time for our final thoughts on this. It's the review crew pattern so go around say something positive about Zork and give it a numerical decimal rating Algo. I really enjoyed. I really enjoyed the vivid descriptions options in the taxpayer. There's like a lot of stuff where just we'll give you a very elaborate picture very well with words and I do think that's a lot of fun in this game is like it's not I feel like just having this game. Be One that we were you. Will you may get us in trouble because it's not a bad game. It's a historically important game. It's just very very very dated and it's just hard to play in two thousand nine hundred and there are other games that you rather play that are more fun because they weren't designed with the limitations of a text next adventure made in the late seventies and before so many game design conventions had been discovered in settled by other people but I will say that it's not like fun now fun. It is unless you have an attachment to it so I don't know exactly how to do this. I guess because of its legacy I we'll give this game and eight point and you know which is a pretty good score again. It's out of a million but it's pretty it's pretty good heather. Your your review well. I something I talk about on this show. Sometimes is this a game or not sure and one of the things that kind kind of sticks in my craw Zork. There are failed states. You can die in zone but there's only one way to solve it so in a way it's more like having an table where you are instruction manuals but you have all the pieces only one way to build the table really yeah and then when you're done. It's like wow I built a table so in that way Zorkin work is a table. It's a brand N. table. Bram and on this table I really really liked some of the details like the inventory system and I really liked internal clocks on stuff or and random encounters in a text based game. I like how I have visual memories of the House. Even though I've never seen the house ray so ten out of ten in our table I like that you said that and then you backed off the mic so quickly I was scared Karl. On what are you scared of. I'm scared of people but not have games that something positive your review so let's start by saying that I'm not a smart man so that was a that was my main handicap getting into this game because like those show me somethin' then I'll be like all right. I'm looking at the screen here. There's a small mailbox. I'm like all right great. All you're seeing all your feelings dud. Ah Thinking of a big juicy Turkey the thing that I like about this game is that it humbled the Damn I had to contend with. I'm not smart enough to play games like when I got to the maze I was just like I think this is it for me like I. I I know I couldn't get out of a real mate. Ah So but the fact that this game yeah I think based on legacy allowed. You think this is very interesting. The inventory system is insane like that is really really cool. Nope I would never think to play this if I had to to do this unless we were doing it here and I probably would never do something like this ever again. So I think probably like I'd have to say four okay all right for me. Kelly nugent positive thing your score. You're what I liked about. This game is that I have a very vivid imagination. I felt like this game. Let me like I don't know I get very jerry liked about this game with me. Like you know like I was a kid. That was like you know always imagining like I played pretend for way salon and like so for me. It was really fun because I was able to as I was reading the descriptions of part of the Rim I would imagine the rest of the room and I was like oh how cool and the descriptions were really cool. The maneuvering and kind of like getting around was a little difficult for me me because like I said my map that I drew was not good but I'll take. That's my that's me problem not the game on imagination but your map is crap. I would say this game eight point. Two wow okay all right Lindsay Kaitai. I also respect the fact act that it was like one of the first Games like this and that it's a text based game that still seems very advanced like the fact that you can ask what you have and it knows and the fact that it'll just like throw somebody in there. Even though as far as I can tell I haven't done anything to prompt that character to show up but I guess is that that's how that must work and it did become addictive as bad as I felt at playing it. I was like get back fucking seller you'll see and so. I did feel he needs to prove myself which was kind of a fun feeling like I did truly feel challenged by this game and not just in a frustrated way as frustrated as I was and I liked the humor of the game mm-hmm however the thing that is really not going down for me is that I felt like the game was laughing at me. I appreciate that at yeah. I was like yeah you can laugh at me but it's because like you know. Oh everything you rotate. It doesn't make you better than me. I was frustrated about that so for that. I'll say a six out of ten okay all right but still six out of ten million. Those were our thoughts but heather. Maybe maybe we're wrong. Maybe we're wrong old these reviews from other sources that we are going to that. Perhaps disagree with us. Here's one this is from Mike Oppenheim. MD quoted in medical economics mix magazine. Why is he talking about this game this article he wrote in the early Eighties House Zork took over my life. Here's an expert as I typed. Read the leaflet Ed by the way which is one of the first things you do in the game. I felt the hair on my neck practical. I remember having the same sensation on first reading Edgar Allan Poe at age eleven. It was this the drop like greening also po isn't that great. He's not that great. It was a little voice were saying this is creepy and weird but don't put it down. I barely noticed by wife. Tiptoe out of the room ten your guard yeah. I noticed that my hand was signing. The divorce wasn't fully aware. Oh man what's his name. He's this is a this is Dr Mike Oppenheim. MD This guy's marriage and medical practice collapse because it's like one of the guys it was on the Manhattan project. Since I liked the game my reviews negative this is from a mango Enga dot net and it starts a universal truth about text Adventure Computer Games is that they just plain suck to this day I cannot. I understand why anybody had any interest in these things to begin with. It's beyond me how someone could sit at a computer. Play a single player text based game and actually get any the enjoyment out of it. I think I may have tried playing text adventure games only a handful of times and each time I was left unbelievably frustrated so much that I pretty much said screw this and never bothered with them again well he did it sounds man needs a vivid imagination. Eh Try it some time yeah and here's here's one this is from computer gaming world. This is from the March April issue of nineteen eighty-three back back when it was I guess Kip bimonthly many features besides his longevity.

"Tie and Kelly new guys how you doing yeah I I your your. We're happy to have you here and also for having US and like. Oh thank you for introducing introducing Zork to me. I had not I'd never played a text. RPG so you were you were new to you also New York. Have you played have. Have you ever played a text adventure. No I don't think so well. I have a dad graphics as well way more rudimentary. Yeah I played. I played some pure text adventures way back in the day on my dad's computer the one I remember most clearly as the hitchhiker's guide game which is which is which is Brady and you know. It's it's similar to this totally. It's a it's a little bit more comedic but yeah. They are very heather have you have you done previously work with my very first. I home video game. Why is a kid yeah. It came it came with whatever computer my parents bought and it was the it was the thing saying that was built into that like the windows ninety five or whatever it was and this would have pre predated windows ninety five obviously eh whatever whatever the heck in my mind sweeper yes it was a game that and I played with my mom on and so this game is it'd be really emotional for me. I won't say anything about my experience. I appreciate how much you love it. No I mean it's it's not we'll we'll get it. I don't think it's great. I'm is my favorite. AVERITT game now. I'm getting a whiff. Of what kind of games do you play a stepping back from Zork for a second. What kind of games do you play if you if you you game and Kellyanne Oh we can start with you share I of an RPG that can spend like two hours customizing my character intensely research romancing options and then and try and make every single person like me and in doing so like make half of them hate me meantime. I love those right now. I'm playing fire emblem which is really really really fucking fun I don't actually I'm pretty new to like. Strategy Games played them. I started playing like divinity original sin and then I was what got me into it because I missed that kind of world. PG With Tactical Combat Yeah Yeah yes I I like. I like sandbox. He stuff. I like one of my favorite games of all time time dragon position. It's one of my favorites all the Dragon H. Games all like all at by our stuff to all those we just will have covered under previous episode so best effect Andromeda. Did you play that I did so. Did we ask first of all. I was pissed off because you can't. I mean whatever I'm not on that episode. The Game Piss me off because like all the other massive games I could like make my character look exactly how I wanted to wanted her to look and like I just felt like the story was like cooler and all the characters were way cooler and garrisons my boyfriend always but like honestly like all the romance options sucked and like I couldn't didn't you can't make your character like you. I was like pissed about that game. It's fine. I'm not over it but it's this show yeah and the kids a really bad game. I agree with your takeover. Although I will say me being me. It was very easy to make myself. A massive honestly like wasn't like the first option Jeff Lindsay any game. What Games do you like to play or or Arou- much. What kind of a game or are you I. If you are one on game I downloaded the like APP game name Gris or Greece or I s I haven't started it yet so there's that but it is like a non speaking game about like grief and sorrow and how we deal with it so I was attracted to it when I was like like in seventh grade I had a Sega Genesis and I played sonic and I played over and Plato Jaman Earl. Wow when I was little I had a computer when I was like seven and I played pictionary on it. Oh and played loom and was very bad at it and gave up very quickly yeah I you. It took me like I didn't get loom it. I I played a lot of those Lucas Adventures and then like I I figured out or read. Actually I don't know where would I have read it because it wasn't there. It wasn't like a the same sort of Internet yeah yeah wouldn't have existed at the time but like then I figure out you can say like there 'cause loom. It's it's got a mechanic where you play songs but I think you can play them backwards and do the opposite effect which is something they have and maybe manual. It might have been that yeah but I was like. I was similarly stuck in it for figured that out yeah. This was like looks cool. It's got a cool aesthetic got you. This weird like illuminate looking black cauldron. Yeah sort of art style that like blue monochrome. That's a good look man really beautiful. It's just like really bad at your main character for and everyone who lives in his village they just like people from the orgeon eyes wide shut the era of gaming though we're like you know you couldn't really like look up what to do so you would just be like like literally stuck for years like. I guess this is what I do. This was my Zork. I would just like get into a place and I'm like man. I don't know just like keep turning around hut. I don't now my mom had a coworker whose daughter was playing Zork also oh so once in a while when I would get stuck that there would be like a game of lakes telephone telephone would go like I'd ask my mom like hey. Can you figure out what like what I'm supposed to do at the damn well I can see if if my coworkers daughter has figured figured it out and then she she figured out one thing that I had like it would be like a community. That's really cool. Slow net interest the fine yeah yeah speaking of of texts I in general because you your podcast you cover you cover books you cover teen literature literature and how do you feel about reading text in game versus reading texts and printed on the printed page because I I'll l. Just say like I found myself. I've realized some of my favorite games. Are these dense long. RPG's like planes scape torment where I basically read a whole novel by the time I'm done with it and I'm like like why would I could have just read a book but for whatever reason the limited amount of interactivity I had near these branching dialogue trees like made this more satisfying. Well I mean for me. I also like really like like really story heavy. RPG's so which is a lot of like I mean we're lucky that rambling three houses it's like fully voiced but like a lot are those games aren't and then so it's a lot of just reading through people's dialogue and like they're happening. Find a book in someone's house near you end up reading pages of it. Yeah Yeah Oh God yeah. We're like collecting the you know the weird. Thing is the like inspire them you know. He can collect all those books shit. I'm busy collecting cheese JEEZ. I don't have time but like I I liked. I liked reading it. I was like oh imagination. I was like imagining where I was. It was kind of cool. I don't know how do you do you either. Have you read fantasy slash. Sifi which is kind of the world. This game lives in not fantasy the books the books on the PODCASTS US are like Christopher Pike are right yeah so I read more like horror and supernatural fantasy and sci fi yeah yeah I was big into into fantasy and sci fi what specifically Harry Potter alive and I liked okay okay before I realized how terrible the author was. I really liked enders game again and then just now I josh it shouldn't even bring it up because I just downloaded a a fantasy book useless dragging writers pearn no was it would guess was it Dragon Lance. No no hold on was pulling up my kindle something with Draghi. Guessing about dragons was it advanced dungeons and dragons. The novel series. It was is a missed born series. Oh sorry guys heavy disappointment well that was dragging in the subtitle. Maybe maybe now miss born born. Oh missed oh well. That's a totally different book than I born. Born of the mist I will say this and and and we should get into Zork a little bit he my issue with with Zork and text adventures in general is that I feel like for me. Reading is is hard enough and like it just makes reading more challenging already like like I it's already a struggle for me just to focus on what's happening in the process it it ended to read through a page and actually have it ingest into my brain versus lightly a reading comprehension tests it is higher time right yeah you you have to pick up on on a on a bunch of different different context clues and make inferences to make this make any any sort of sense a little bit about this game was developed and published by Infocomm huge word of mouth hitting hitting the early days computing days released one thousand nine hundred but it was it was word of mouth propelled it to be the best selling game of nineteen eighty. One through nineteen eighty-four four.

"The fact that she we see we see lots of weapons lots weapons in this yes and she makes them herself. She makes some herself. She's got a nine. She's got a bone era. Well we get to see a woman do things that we rarely get to see a woman doing movies which is stuff like hunt use tools climb trees rap rap a little little rope around your leg so you can sleep on tree be better than her male counterpart at all of this except for cake decorating. He's given a traditionally what I would say is a feminine. Yeah skill which is like any decorating and really yeah cooking and really elaborate makeup and being weaker and being shrill. Honestly I find pita to be shrew shrill. Go home down spherical. The entire mentioned his hair at the top of the show. He also suffers from a wet hair issue. Oh yes very bad hair. Sometimes I wonder maybe it's just a Jennifer. Lawrence has perfect hair because that's how that's all the hair budget the yeah her wigs were too good and then everyone else wakes suffer. I mean but like female protagonists need to look clean she she barely looks there is a MAC overseas to cute I in district twelve. I would wear like blue deep address. Her kinky boots jacket her leather jacket that she got from agent and what was that it was very why I liked. The jacket was cute cute. I have almost all of those articles of clothing. I considered showing up and cause playing as we do tonight. I've got a juicer similar of gut the jeans I don't know but anyway I do. Poorer closed due dot feel sorry for her. Where is she shopping. I know Caitlin you. You just mentioned the makeover. That was one of the things I actually did like because I feel like again again. The movie frames the makeover as unnecessary and wrong yes. I felt like there was commentary there right because again. There's this whole ongoing theme throughout the movie where everyone's telling her cat naps. You need to be more likable. Oh by Peter saying that he has a crush on you. That makes you seem desirable. Which is good? I feel like the movie. Maybe could have done a little bit more to suggest that that was a bad stance to take but I think it would say. It doesn't enough but I I think maybe for like younger viewers. It was perhaps too subtle for like pre-t estimate percent yeah it could all have been the author's intent movie to comment on like. She is great what she does. She isn't like likable but she can win these games on her own but the only way she's going to get outside. Help is if she seems like softened by somebody being in love with her right right like I think that that like that was parts of the movie that I totally agree now that you mention it that it was if I was like thirteen seeing this movie. Would I have picked up upon that absolute. I barely picked up yesterday. You guys have provided a lot of insight sounded like at the end to what I really liked at the end at least for me as an adult woman was how scary the end was because like it it was very like a girl. Would you get yourself into trap and when he grabs her hand and pulls it up like that and like the weird fakey like interview part where she's she's like. I just couldn't imagine without like I think me now. I'm like Dang okay. That's like I get it. Also also commentary by has thirteen year old. I would have been like fleet. There's some winning love yeah right eighty eight. I wouldn't have picked up on on like the whole like aesthetic thing like and how she's made to be cute. And how an house only show is your address. I would have been like wow awesome undress like I wasn't clear enough. You're right yeah doing that. Even though it's like as an adult that watches movies exclusively this way I I'm it watching it through the Lens that we've trained ourselves to watch looking for also Stanley Tucci play the same character in this movie as he does in the Devil Wears Prada question answer. Yes yes. Yes yes a thousand times yet. I love the two but I do think that Alan Cumming could've played this just as well and Alfred Molina could obliterate as Winston Alfred Molina interesting thing. Is that the same guy but he's just gone there. I and real crime that I wouldn't make that mistake. A A lot of people make the mistake of not going to Alfred. He's available to do podcasts so he can be in your name really growing as a person talking to you guys you're here. Welcome amazing. That's the true mission of this podcast again. Alfred Molina cast in morals just to go back to the the weapons pins discussion very quickly according to a study from the Gena Davis Institute ever heard of our which does a lot of great work Cappella MENSA member and Olympic Archer which is what this is about they the institute conducted inducted a study that concluded that seven in ten girls who had taken up archery say that Katrina's from the hunger games and Princess Merita from Pixar's. There's brave influenced their decision to take up archery. That's great cool and I buy it because I want to do it too right. I mean and it it shows something that we talk about a lot which is that representation matters and this study specifically about archery but similar studies have been done about now like showing women in computer science and other like stem fields and showing those women in those roles in media and not influencing girls and a young women to pursue careers in those fields and stuff like that so. I mean the more you're represented or the more specific thing is represented. The more people ooh especially young people will think oh I can do that to female ghost busting has gone up nine hundred percent in two thousand sixteen no that totally really I mean and that's why we're always pushing for more movies about like women who are also athletes and stuff like that because it does it does make a difference. I think that one of the strengths of this movie as that so it is based on source material from a female author who also was allowed to adopt her own work for the screen. There's three credit of writer. Suzanne Collins Gary Ross and a man bafflingly named Billy Ray Cyrus. It's not not happen happens. Cyprus on the finish the sentence they're hanging and but it seems as if because they're both prolific fix screenwriters that they probably had more of a role in helping Susan Collins adapt but she also has a history of shoes a TV writer she wrote for Clarissa Explains Wins it all in a number of other and the mystery files of Shelby Woo. Oh my God so many female yeah so it is and it is cool of like I I feel like it's not very common that especially when there's like this movie definitely benefited from her adapting it like God knows what would have happened. The three men adapted this for how would have made her too sexy. It would've which is another thing that I wanted to Real Grossi Josie Chrissy Rosie and there's also a legendary female producer involved in this Nina Jacobson who was one of the only only women to head a Hollywood film studio ever so it seems like there were like women in power who were steering this movie in the right direction and then the last thing I wanted to mention was although there is a male cinematographer animal director. I felt like the way that Jennifer Lawrence who is very often objectified and in movies like her body is not made a feast of in a moment yeah so so perhaps to two movie for not you know just making it about her body most of the time she's in full like I mean we talked about mother exclamation Asian points and how that he's out of your relationship. I don't want anything to do but instead it's just like a million like very very tight close up shots of her face and yeah yeah so rates and enterprise breads. I would just like to throw out there real quick that the album that came out that is not the soundtrack but it's hunger games songs from district twelve which are just like a lot of like kind of dark blue grassy and it's all that it's just one that just that interest so weird. No there's this whole album where where it's just like inspired by cool and it's really good like arcade fire's on their NICO cases on their. Oh district must be it's like Coleman in Crunchy Appalachia where I grew up brag and proud brag proud Appalachia. Lisa Jones like quickfire list of of last thoughts I had Hamish calls. Kansas sweetheart no less than like six times in the movie very annoying. He is not a feminist icon and then I think he's framed as one. He's supposed to be up now. shout out to the. I don't know if we ever learn her name or what district she's from but the girl was red hair. Oh Double Bunn double birth name who makes it almost all the way to the very very end loved her and she's like another type who like doesn't WanNa kill anyone. She just outlast and that's another thing I wanted to say. Is that like I was Kinda. Kinda worried that because female characters are so often presented in movies hike having to be dislike. Polite Nice never would do anything run because women are high held to a higher standard than men of like just being perfect and polite all the time like catnip wouldn't kill anybody that she would would or maybe passively kills them but she like she coast future does does does pita kill anyone. I'm like Peter does not kill anyone. I don't think it's too busy painting he can he is he is. He took him six hours to paint himself like a rock. I I should've realistically. He should have been killed in the time. It took the famous. The only reason he got stabbed was because he wouldn't like stop painting himself as Iraq when somebody attacked him he was fully painted as Iraq and that guy was like running and tripping fells like he's like people together. You've got to do things real. Quick on the train to the capitol. Hey Mitch Asks Catnip if she will pass the Marmalade so hey which is basically Paddington. I mean but I I know Paddington is a million dollar. Dare call so let me rephrase feminist icon. I mean you're not wrong. Communist Ernest icon. Hey Mitch is trying to emulate Paddington in the scene but he does not succeed because Hamish Sucks Paddington would give him a hard stare and Paddington would never wear that week or be drunk. Paddington where rain is GONNA getting prepared to be wet really he should have been in the hunger..

"kelly nugent" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast

"Oh goodness all right. We'll start. There's so much to to talk about with. I I feel like okay so this movie is like often cited when people are talking about movies with strong female protagonists shirt. Are you do get to see a young woman who has a lot of agency. She has skills. The stakes are high the series. It's become about her being like a symbol for the revolution like it's a whole it's female lead action franchise which is cool indeed but there there are some things that I wish wouldn't have happened the romantic subplot in its entirety by any chance. Yes the big thing yeah hey for me. I was like an I wonder how much of this was supposed to inspire like dread because for me I was like like Ono. She's like being told that she has to fake this relationship with this guy. I don't like that she kind of seemed to like him back thousand Tornado yeah because what I would have liked was for her to like not really know how much of it he's faking because he is more implicit than she thinks he is. She is seen that he knows how to play the game. I disagree. I don't think he is at old duplicitous. I think he's going to the other side purely to save her not not for that. I mean like he knows how to play this game so he is faking being in love with her. I mean maybe he likes her but I think because we see from the next next movies that he he like fully is up with her. I think it's a little bit of both super good so I I don't know he's he's like fully in love with her. But also I mean I think you're right to in that like you see in that moment in the parade when they're on the Cherry Alec he goes to surprise not kiss is but grabbed her hand and she goes away and he's like no come on that love it and then and she's like okay. He's hold hands and then people are like we I it was a little confused about the same debate of like because at first it does seem like I was assuming that he was very calculated in ways especially because of the whole like if felt like the first episode of the Bachelor where he goes on. He doesn't tell her that he likes her. He tells the entire the album this very performance way and I was like that seems calculated like seems like some you know something that just like gain attention and goodwill but then they sort of try to spin Bennett at later as if it were actually totally sincere and not calculated at all and I just like. I don't hate that the TV TV show tries to push them together because I there's some commentary there of like the way I really like realistic yeah the way the TV show treats cat. I think is meant to be like commentary of like when she goes up for her. First interview like Stanley Tucci make sure she has to show off her outfit and like to and and when Woody Harrelson advise her and what to do. It's very like reality TV calculated so I'm like okay. I'd like that works for me because there's commentary being made and we believe at the time that she doesn't care for this guy at all so there's like some interesting tension but then I feel like they kind of throw it away by making like no they actually do like each other so right because she initiates the kiss when they're in the cave high so but then even then I was just like is she doing this because she knows you know. They're are being on camera. I I don't know which would be smart. All India my interpretation based on the book and the movie together because I think what it comes down to is it not working in the movie is casting. They have no chemistry do not have chemistry whatsoever not and and neither of them have very many shades to their performance either so when he is playing sincere in love with catnaps it it read exactly the same as when you are supposed to kind of wonder what his motives are under because she is wondering right but then as the book goes on it's like no he was a hundred percent sincere. It is shooting our you know which is not something I even thought about watching a movie last night. I'm like Oh yeah no yeah and also I think I think deep down. Maybe he does love her but he might be like one of those guys. That's like Nick doesn't understand to love someone truly to love them. How they WANNA be loved rather. He's just like this is how I express it and that's why he announced it because I think partially he's doing it because he's like Oh. I feel love her. I should say it and then like partially he is. He knows the only thing he's got is knowing how to play the game because he he from the beginning they get in there. She's like soaking and he's like. We should wave at them because like right got to get people to like you. That was like an interesting moment for me because you're just like okay. This is like a almost like I wish that they if the tension were constantly from like them doubting like Oh. Is this sincere Ashley. How do I feel about it but it like. I don't know yet it's muddy. It is yeah it is partially performed thing and then setting aside. They're like lack of Komo. If we just take it like event of the story at face value what happens is that the movie progresses the more this romantic storyline it gets entangled into the main story which is their survival which I feel is really unnecessary like. They made a conscious choice because there's like all right. This is a why book look. This is a movie franchise for largely like Teen Young adult audiences. We've gotTA wedge this not only a romantic antic storyline into here but it's a love triangle story off his homes were otherwise why do I care yeah because in this first movie and I wonder if the book makes this more clear or not I I can't remember but gail in cattiness are framed as being best friends and there's no reason to assume that they have anything besides platonic friendship apart from being very attractive abroad apart from both being near each other there and both hot but then when you when Gail is watching the hunger games from his TV or where I've read the bar did in the hunger games bar he's seeing cattiness and pita kiss on TV and he's like visibly visibly upset to understand like Ono he's also in love with Katrina's because in a why novel and movie sure a woman gets to be the main character sometimes but if she is she's gotTa have not one but two boys who love her which is like both adds nothing to well. I mean it's I feel like it's supposed to add stuff to the story but there's just multiple elements of this movie and I think this is like the most sinister one also introducing introducing Daddy Issues Ninety minutes into the movie. I also found to be very unnecessary. I forgot loosened eating after getting bitten the mom and the dad being good and stuff right. I it's like there's too many crutches involving male characters when it's like this movie does not want for stakes. The stakes are high and like adding in this like love story that doesn't work really and then throwing in in some daddy issues on top of it. It's like we are like catnip is already in trouble and the daddy stuff doesn't really pay off at all except in like a passing comment to her mom. Tom And I don't know there was just most of the like adding a problem on top of a problem that was already life or death. This is just not necessary. It's also interesting in how they show like. They introduce these like Daddy. Issues is because what it actually comes down to is it becomes an issue she. She has with her mom. She doesn't think about her dad that much. What happened is her. Dad died and the mom shut down emotionally and she had to take care of herself and she had to take care of Prim so it's actually actually a mommy issue but it doesn't really present that way. It's we're I mean I feel like it kind of glory like the way mothers are presented in this movie we are is. I mean it's very limited but I feel like it is telling where it seems like we're supposed to assume because pita has a bad possibly abusive relationship with his mom that that's why he treats Katrina's like shit at first which is kind of like a one to one that I was like that should if if you're GonNa do that then you have to explore it. You can't just be like that's why you shitting to women so you can like him. I thought he was like Shitty to her because he was embarrassed. What about being bogged on the head with a rolling pin. I'm not sure what happened but he got bombed or whatever and I think he just was just in a shitty. Should he plays right. Didn't I don't want to yeah being in the bullock person but again. This is another weakness of the movie so it's like on the one hand. It seems like a really good adaptation and on the other hand it totally doesn't convey at all what the book version of this was which is that he was is like really putting himself on the line by throwing her that but you're not supposed to give food to other people in the hunger games right in those worlds. I mean everyone's hungry yeah. It was like he was everyone was so hungry so it's hard doing your so you're allowed what arose bread at pigs pigs but not at people it was like that bread was to feed their pigs that they need to survive. I think right so he's like real risking a beating by even throwing her some bread and she remembers this so when he steps up on stage at least in the book she was like it's kind of a sense. Maybe I'm remembering that's wrong. That would be amazing if I'm remembering this wrong but when he steps up on stage she's like oh no the only other person who's been nice to meet my whole whole life like. I don't want it to be him get he was he like gave me. Brad ones. Oh I read it as she. I was like Oh you through Brett me no. He's like you had that it's pita. I did not see that in the movie seemed like she was like you threw bread at me. You think you're better than me and like you saw me at my like worse when I was like Hungary and leaning on a tree in the rain so she does. I'm not seem bad off. It seems like she was like yeah. I was just like having a nice day out in the rain. Those flashbacks are badly done using like we all had different takeaways from them..
