Get ready to get gud, and crack open a cold one with the Old Ones.

Wow, what a year, huh? One thing happened, and then suddenly another thing, then wham-o– even more things. The things never stop coming, do they?

Speaking of “things,” let’s talk about Death Stranding. Even if it is sOo 2019 and you didn’t even play it.

Raising a New Generation- An Interpretation of God of War (2018)

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , , on 09/23/2018 by McCutcheon

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

It’s crazy to think how far video games have come. From just a few dots and lines on a screen all the way to 2018, where a grown man can squint at an amazingly rendered Hollywood-style movie in between actually gameplay and say to himself- “What is this trying to say to me?”

And as fun as God of War (2018) is, there’s enough meaning beneath the surface it spills out over the Lake of Nine and wraps around the entire GOW world. Continue reading

“Mirrored”- An Examination of Venom Snake’s Fate Through Nietzsche

Well, seeing as how I haven’t been using the site much the past year or so I don’t think anyone would mind if I popped out another Metal Gear Solid baby.

But in the off chance you’re not a fan of the series and decide to read anyway, hopefully you’ll get something out of it all the same. Just know there are spoilers ahead and the post itself may require knowledge of the series, in particular, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

MBTI: Dumbledore- INFJ

Oh man. Here he is. The INFJ wizard to end all INFJ wizards. Okay, maybe not but still.

When an INFJ sage-like character is written and/or performed well, they can often walk the line of appearing like an ENFJ or even an INTP. Their wise, thoughtful attitudes and friendly disposition can often invoke the better qualities of several other types that seem to go beyond one personality. But nope, there can be only one.

MBTI: Luna Lovegood- INFP or INTP?

To some it may be obvious what the weirdest kid at Hogwarts might be, but examining all the evidence, there’s a pretty good bit to suggest she might be the dreamiest dreamer or the thinkiest thinker. I’m working on making “thinkiest” a real word.

While Ravenclaw doesn’t seem to make too much of an impact on the overarching story of Harry Potter, an introduction to Luna gives us an idea of the type of student that makes up the house. Intelligent, offbeat, and pretty freaking weird. Let’s get into it. Continue reading

A great representation of the INTJ who’s real master plan you never saw coming until it was too late, Severus Snape’s backstory has got to be the saddest in all of Harry Potter lore.

We’ll be going over some aspects to the INTJ they don’t like to talk about until you pretend they don’t understand that side of humanity. What am I talking about? You’ll see. Continue reading

MBTI: Harry Potter- ISFP

This one took me a bit, not gonna lie. But after using my own methodology because I’m just like, so super full of myself, ISFP seems the right fit.

The Boy Who Lived is goes from the little room under the stairs to being the most famous wizard of all time. How does he deal with it? A lot of shrugging, a little bit of self-doubt and a whole lot o’ love.
