It’s official: Ultima 9 makes baby Jesus cry. No doubt of great relief to OSI, Ultima 9 is now kid tested and Christian approved.
When my children are old enough, I plan on playing this game again with them and discussing the Avatar’s actions with respect to Christ and his followers — something the game designers probably never intended!
Especially when the Avatar starts hitting on Raven. I bet that’s a great point to explain the ethics of mature relationships. “Kids, BAD TOUCH.”
Here we have the AC Ub4r Furor and in the next shot we have the HP Ub4r Furor. I am using a 4 instead of a 3 in my spelling of uber because I personally believe I have transcended the petty levels of uberness most people squabble over. I have decided that I am no longer ub3r but instead I am now ub4r. I hope to work my way to ub9r in the near future.
Years later, Murm finally got his goddamned catapult.
Over at planetCrap, there’s a good discussion of something that’s come up before: product placement in games. My favorite quote comes from Flamethrower:
My guess is Duke 4’s gameplay will consist entirely of SHOCK THE MONKEY.
