This game is largely a journey from A to B albeit with choices along the way but the story offers too little in the way of amusements and diversions. Even while the gadget whirs and spins, nothing it says actually clicks. Destiny's writing is really not very good.
Many great stories spring from the mind of a single creator, and are then expanded by others. Destiny's story looks like it was concocted by committee, according to a formula we have all seen too many times before. It's a wasted opportunity to show that big games can tell truly great stories.

It turns out that they had known that the mask had been the source of the logo, but were unaware of the published photo. After they read our blog they put the mask on exhibit. The 19th century mask believed to have inspired the original Seahawks logo coming to Seattle's burkemuseum. A Kickstarter campaign has just been launched that will try to bring the Kwakwaka'wakw transformation mask -- supposedly the inspiration for the iconic Seahawks logo -- to Seattle's Burke Museum.
Mark Ingram's hand injury is expected to keep him out for "about a month. Ingram was having a big game when he sustained the injury, and has been one of the bright spots of New Orleans' offense through two games. Ingram carried the ball 13 times for 60 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons , and had 11 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown against the Browns. He also caught three passes for 21 yards against the Browns. Ingram looked to be turning a corner after early struggles throughout his career.
Fantasy Impact: This is a definite setback for Ingram, the Saints and fantasy owners. After two games he was looking like a fantasy steal, but if he's set to miss a month he stands to return right around the team's Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions , thanks to a bye week in Week 6. After Ingram, the Saints have Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas , though neither inspire a ton of confidence for fantasy owners. Thomas is probably the safest handcuff at this point. Peter King discusses all the horrible news of the past week and wonders if there's a tipping point for the NFL.
I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch. My attorney has asked me not to discuss the facts of my pending case.
I hope you can respect that request and help me honor it. I very much want the public to hear from me but I understand that it is not appropriate to talk about the facts in detail at this time. Nevertheless, I want everyone to understand how sorry I feel about the hurt I have brought to my child. I never wanted to be a distraction to the Vikings organization, the Minnesota community or to my teammates. I never imagined being in a position where the world is judging my parenting skills or calling me a child abuser because of the discipline I administered to my son.
I voluntarily appeared before the grand jury several weeks ago to answer any and all questions they had. Before my grand jury appearance, I was interviewed by two different police agencies without an attorney. In each of these interviews I have said the same thing, and that is that I never ever intended to harm my son.
I will say the same thing once I have my day in court. I have to live with the fact that when I disciplined my son the way I was disciplined as a child, I caused an injury that I never intended or thought would happen. I know that many people disagree with the way I disciplined my child. I also understand after meeting with a psychologist that there are other alternative ways of disciplining a child that may be more appropriate. I have learned a lot and have had to reevaluate how I discipline my son going forward. But deep in my heart I have always believed I could have been one of those kids that was lost in the streets without the discipline instilled in me by my parents and other relatives.
I have always believed that the way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man. I love my son and I will continue to become a better parent and learn from any mistakes I ever make. I am not a perfect son. I am not a perfect husband.
I am not a perfect parent, but I am, without a doubt, not a child abuser. I am someone that disciplined his child and did not intend to cause him any injury. No one can understand the hurt that I feel for my son and for the harm I caused him. My goal is always to teach my son right from wrong and that's what I tried to do that day. I accept the fact that people feel very strongly about this issue and what they think about my conduct. Regardless of what others think, however, I love my son very much and I will continue to try to become a better father and person.
Green, and several other stars all left their teams' Week 2 games with injuries. Knock it off, NFL. The commissioner has had a pretty bad week, dancing around some fishy handling of the Ray Rice situation that blew up last week, so he couldn't make it. By the time it was all said and done, both teams combined for 26 penalties. Needless to say, this is great. Ditka pic. I did not make that up. There is a scene in this show where Jubilee follows up a conversation about crushing on Longshot by lying to him about her age.
In our last episode, Cyclops was moping around because Jean Grey died two years ago and decided to leave the X-Men and go hang out at an orphanage, because that is definitely something adult men should be doing with their time. Kinda like the Phantom, only sterner and more disapproving ya know? But it has to be before February.

This could be continued ad infinitum as a method of travel. This episode has a new and different opening sequence, pairing a bunch of clips from the show with a slightly different, more guitar-squealy version of the theme song, although before anyone starts worrying, I can assure you that the churchbells made it through intact.
Good job, X-Men. As Mojo restores Spiral, we cut to the -Mansion, where one Jubilation Lee is hella crushing on Longshot and his beautiful, feathery mullet. What is happening. The rest of the X-Men head out to find her, and, in a deft bit of plot shorthand, Wolverine announces that he can smell Mojo and we get to skip over any scenes about wondering just what sinister mastermind could be behind this.
So… Longshot can… see the future? Of people who own jackets? Still kind of weird. The next scene finds the X-Men wandering through the woods, following actual signs that Mojo has left, and the background paintings are actually pretty beautiful and very moody.

By John Walker on September 15th, at pm. If this sounds surprising, then please do read on. We want to explain why our our driving goal is not objectivity, but honesty. It is, at best, an ideal — an unreachable target, toward which some attempt to strive, believing the closer one is to it, the better a job one is doing. However, this is a position RPS rejects, as we believe such a goal is antithetical to useful, accurate reporting on games.
Objectivity in writing is, generally speaking, an attempt to detach oneself from a topic, to report simply the verifiable facts of a matter, without any personal input or editorial angle whatsoever. When it comes to reporting news — a part of what RPS does on a daily basis — this may immediately sound like a positive thing.

However, upon any scrutiny, this logic falls very quickly apart. We asked part-time philosopher and linguist Nicholas Mailer to expand on the philosophical myth of objectivity — you can read that here. Subjectivity reveals itself from every angle, no matter how stringently fought against. Take, for example, the anti-vaccination movement, originating in wholly false claims that the MMR vaccine was causing autism.
They presented the opinions and claims made by those who believed there were dangers in equal measure to those who had science and evidence to demonstrate none of their claims were accurate. The same goes for reporting on climate change, or even complaints made by a very few against a television programme watched by millions.
An attempt to offer objective, balanced reporting leads to a deceptive, imbalanced understanding for the receiver of that news. Immediately, then, objectivity is compromised. A couple of years ago, Fox News reported that the game Bulletstorm was going to cause players to commit rapes. They based these claims on the words of a self-styled expert, and then backed this up with quotes from other experts in the field. Which would have been preposterous. We approached the topic entirely subjectively, with an aim to uncovering what was really going on here, exploring agendas, and challenging claims, and with a personal belief that Bulletstorm was unlikely to cause rapes.
A vast proportion of our job is to critically appraise gaming, and report our personal views. But we did it for a really good reason. Too many gaming sites at the time of our launching had become incredibly po-faced about their reviews. Recognising the entire concept as completely daft, and indeed believing such a thing utterly undesirable, we chose to ensure it was abundantly clear that our reviews of games were — of course — just the opinions of one person. One person who is, hopefully, well-equipped to create interesting, informed and entertaining words about that game, that offers useful information for someone considering buying it, while providing a clearly subjective view.
A corollary of this is that we welcome disagreement! We make no claim to any review on RPS being the literal objective truth. In fact, we refute that such a thing is even possible. But oh my goodness, what now? See — see where this notion of objectivity has so quickly taken us? Again, it would pull us away from the thing which is far more important: honesty. And whether or not you agree with them, that surely makes RPS more useful to you than if we were trying to sweep all that under the carpet?
We certainly like to see people wear their heart on their sleeve. Surely, even accepting the earlier arguments that the simple presentation of news makes objectivity an impossibility, we should be striving for something as close to it as possible? Because once again, we value honesty far more highly than we do an attempt to scramble up the impossibly steep slope of objectivity. There are an awful lot of gaming sites, and there are an awful lot of them reporting gaming news, as presented to them by PRs, publishers and developers.
Which is why we think RPS offers far, far more to our readers by doing something different: To report the announcement of a game, or the arrival of a new trailer, and then to give our subjective opinion of that news. We know, absolutely, that our opinion can be rejected by those reading the news, and indeed we most frequently offer space below the post for people to voice their disagreement. Okay, the elephant in the room after all of this is obviously when it comes to something like our reporting on those topics that seem to cause the most trouble: sexism, misogyny, marginalisation of any perceived minority, and similar.
He went through those words for each site over the year , and found that So less than half a percent of gaming coverage even mentions these subjects, let alone is singularly about them. In fact, of the ten sites studied, RPS was the 7th least likely to mention the subjects, with less than one percent of our articles alluding to the topic.
So, objectively , RPS dedicates the tiniest fraction of its content to a topic many are claiming obsesses us. We can, with this in mind, abandon the vast majority of the fears and claims being made about the topic taking over our coverage, or colouring our games journalism. But what about the subjectivity that remains in those 0. Our response can only be: well, yes.
Yes, we are subjective about this matter. We believe it matters. Outside that, well, our attitudes and opinions persist. And they do so differently from writer to writer. It was conceived that way — four strong personalities in the British gaming press got together, to create a site that would put personal writing at the forefront, in the way we most enjoyed reading from others. In the way classic s and s gaming magazines had — something we saw as missing from the contemporary press.
Over the seven years, a lot of sites have followed, and personality-driven reporting is far more commonplace now than it was last decade. However, RPS will remain personality-driven, striving for honesty with subjectivity over objectivity, as has always been our goal. We hope that people will see the merits of what we do, of our desire to be as honest as is possible, but we wholly accept that some simply do not want this. We hope those people will find a site that meets their needs. To summarise: We believe objectivity to be antithetical to good games coverage, and instead focus on honesty, both factual and personal.

I will post photos of the tree later, this post is just close ups of one of the christmas craft projects I was working on. Each year we will continue to add more characters from old and new anime series. These were the only ones I had time to work on. Who got hit in the feels?!

Thank You, liui. Famous Cosplayer liui. I hope she didn't plan on killing me For the Glory of Hoshido! Not the size of a PG but still a good deal of plastic. Stella Glow is by far one of the best underrated games I've ever played. Just finished this little guy here earlier today. Going to start on another piece real soon.
Trying to decide what to make next. Will it be an Anime? Another Disney? Or something random? Keep an eye out for it. Piece by piece getting products made for the shop. It is all coming together a little bit at a time. The first step is all it takes and I am taking them. Needle felting and anime. Getting some products made to open shop soon. What better way to do that than with catching up on some anime. Work while having your inspiration playing in the background.
More photos and updates to come soon. Watch for the finished product. Slowly but surely I am working hard to get the shop up and running as soon as I can, but being a full time mommy comes first! It's been a little over 2 weeks since I've last played. Just a few more days and I'll be home. Can't wait to play again.
Ending day3 now. The tails lasted for three hours or should I say I lasted having the weight on my lower back for three hours lol. Now we on our way to get our grub on!
