In this episode of the HAWPcast, we talk about HUGE GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS. Do NOT listen unless you’re caught up with the show, at least up to the episode entitled “The Viper and The Mountain.”
A while ago, I said I liked Mark of the Ninja because of how it gave the player complete information. Because the player knows exactly where the guards’ vision cones end and how effective their items will be, the player is empowered to make an execute complicated plans with very little fuss. Mark of the Ninja is about precision. It’s about doing supercool ninja-esque things like jumping into the air, throwing darts at two lightbulbs to bathe a room in darkness, landing directly behind a guard as he looks up in confusion at the light you just shattered, and stabbing that guard in the throat. Precision. Planning. Perfection.
Sir, You Are Being Hunted sits on the opposite end of the stealth spectrum. And it’s really damn good.
In this podcast, we discuss DayZ, the movie Her, and make literally zero mention of feminism. Grant, Justin, Ulisses, Ash, Aaron Linde, and I are all involved.
Hope you like it.
