It’s a new Whitless Letter! And I have to say, I am pleased with my efforts and am ever impressed with the skills of the Video Ninja.
I do love the Walking Dead series. I really do. It’s a riveting and brutal story with some of the best writing I’ve seen in a video game. But I would be remiss if I didn’t bring up the rising death toll.
From what I’ve been told, this is a pretty common thing for the Walking Dead whether it be the video game, the tv series or the comic. And it makes sense in a survival story. But MAN between this and the Last of Us my soul has been put through the figurative wringer.
I suppose it’s a plus that there are characters in this game that are likeable enough that I’m actually sorry that they die. But I really and truly am worried for the fate of my dear Clementine. She is one of the most awesome child characters out there and I hope to all the powers that be that Telltale gives her SOME sort of happy ending. It could even be a melancholy ending with a tinge of happiness! But she deserves SOMETHING after what she’s been put through these games. something? Anything?
…I need to play some Stanley Parable to learn to laugh again…
And I would say more, but I’m off to a cottage! Train time!
And so I’ve done my last Whitless Letter in the Test Chamber. And since it’s the Test Chamber it was only fitting that I do the letter to GlaDOS. And because I’m moving into Errol’s, it was also only fitting that he be involved. And it’s crazy.
And so I have written a new Whitless Letter! If you are a fan of Last of Us or Sloths you may enjoy it.
Hey guys! Funny story. I submitted a video to Geek and Sundry to become a vlogger. It was my Whitless Letter to Kerrigan. I actually submitted it twice. Once because I had the incorrect youtube link formatting.
Then I was sent a letter saying it couldn’t be accepted because it was a webseries, not a vlog, and because it was an already established series as opposed to a video I made specifically as an entry.
Then I get a comment on the video from someone saying they loved it and found it through the Geek and Sundry submission page and hoped I would get voted in.
So it seems I am…undisqualified. Which is exciting! I have missed out on five days of voting because I thought my video wasn’t there. But hey! Can’t hurt to try! So vote for my video. Share it around. And let’s see if I can get into Geek and Sundry at the eleventh hour! Here’s where you can vote.
For those of you who are not aware, I love video games. A lot. I love making fun of them even more. About two years ago (woah) I began doing a video series in which I wrote letters to various video game characters. Mostly it was a way to practice in front of the camera and to try my hand at writing, but it was so much fun I kept doing them. This is the latest one. Enjoy!
The nice thing about having a blog now though is that I can also use it to elaborate on the Letters a bit. Fun times! Read the rest of this entry
