What...?

...

It's over...?

What the fuck?

Well, since 2014 is over, may as well recount some good things that happened... and some negative things. And what's better than to do that with Video Games, Movies, and Television/Online Media formatted like TV? I mean, there are several, but I don't have the tools to do any of them.

Now, of course, there are some rules. There will be no remakes on the lists, because that isn't really a new thing, just a remake. The top ten are games that I have played or at the very least have and have no reason to doubt their goodness. The bottom ten... You'll see why they're rated so low... Movies are all ones that I have seen, however (un)fortunate that may be. And TV shows, you get the idea.

Video Games
Top Ten:


10. Goat Simulator (PC):
[link]
    This may come as a bit of a shock to you all, but I adore the freaky game. Despite being what most consider a joke game, the developers have kept up with updates, support, and even a free MMO upgrade. How the fuck they did that, I have no clue. Goat Simulator is definitely not a fantastic game, but that's where it's charm comes in: in the modern video game market, companies are trying their damnedest to try to out-scare, out-graphics, out-userbase, etc. each other in a modern nuclear arms race. Goat Simulator says "Fuck all that, have a goat in a jetpack that just summoned satan himself from a pentagram on the hill."

9. Octodad: Dadliest Catch (PC):
[link]
    Broken physics? Check. Interspecies relationships? Check. Tentacles? Check...? Octodad is one of those weird games that look stupid and awful, but provide some of the best commentary and the best glitches (As annoying as they may be). It's so stupid and hard to control, that it becomes fun to look back on. And with co-op where everyone can control a limb individually... J- Just put Mario Party in, it'll be less painful.

8. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Wii U):
    Yes, there's an expand dong joke here, but I'm not making it because the game is fun. Co-op between the four main Kongs, platforming, interesting enemies, and a fantastic atmosphere all combine to make a great game. It's Donkey Kong Country. Do I need to explain further?

7. Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):
    What do you get when you combine Dynasty Warriors, and Nintendo's green boy - Link? You get a game that does a better job of being the Dragonborn than Skyrim. You can mow down enemies, you can use the familiar items of Zelda, you can PLAY as Zelda, the game feels more like a fan-project than a Nintendo game, and that's a good thing. Plus it brings back Ruto! Yes, the fish breasts are back... for a reason.

6. Captain Toad, Treasure Tracker (Wii U):
    It's revolutionary. Nintendo practically defined the platforming genre, and now they've redefined it again. Who'd have ever thought a platforming game with no jumping would be so fun. A puzzle/platform, Cpt. Toad provides fresh levels, beautiful designs, and a fucking amazing soundtrack. Nintendo not only managed to make a new idea for platforming, but they've also managed to turn a minigame into a full fledged amazing game.

5. Dragon Age: Inquisition (Multiple):
    Going to be honest, haven't had a great run with Bioware recently. But, Dragon Age combines fantasy and the classic Bioware feel, and a character creation that puts Saints Row to shame. It's fun.

4. Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):
    A badass woman, angels and demons, gunplay, and hair. It's good. I don't even have to play it to recommend it because this game is being called one of the best of the modern age, and that's saying a lot considering how much people were shitting on SEGA's decision to make the game a Wii U exclusive.

3. Kirby: Triple Deluxe (3DS):
    Kirby. Kirby. Kirby. It's the pink ball of what I presume to be rubber. It's cute, it's beautiful, the power-ups are badass, and the game is amazing. It honestly reminds me of playing Kirby 64 and just playing the same level over and over again and still feeling the same happy "This is nice" feeling.

2. Super Smash Bros. (Wii U):
    Over 50 characters, DLC characters on the way, Sakurai being... Sakurai. There isn't a reason not to purchase this game. For once, you can actually efficiently play online with friends, or do eight character brawls, or do your own thing. I enjoy this game, but the only thing better than it is-

1. Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):
    This game. This fucking game. This game is the game that has pretty much saved the Wii U financially. Millions of copies sold, DLC purchased in droves, Let's plays more popular than horror games (for a while at least). It's smooth, nearly perfect, and completely and utterly beautiful. Like this game is more beautiful than any on the above list. Nintendo heard the complaints about graphics on the Wii, so they took the dial up to infinity. I fucking love this game.

Bottom Ten:

10. Oh, this game will give me shit. Destiny (Multiple):
    Let's face it. We all heard the idea, we all saw how beautiful and fun the beta was, so we bought the hype instantly. What we got was an adequate FPS trying desperately to be both Borderlands and Halo while trying to mix other popular MMO's in. It didn't hold my intention past the first month, which pisses me off more than anyone could ever imagine. It's story isn't. There isn't a story, just a loose path. It's not bad as much as it is utterly disappointing.

9. Tomodachi Life (3DS):
    You've heard my rant on this, it's a god sim to an island of non-believers. It's boring, tedious, and gives you less control than in an average mobile game. It's just not good.

8. Titanfall (Multiple):
    Again, not as bad as it was average. It's an FPS with giant robots, and, while it has it's moments, it's no different than just average FPS games. I loved it for the first few months, but as with all FPS games, it's lifespan is regrettably short.

7. Watch Dogs (Multiple):
    This will definitely not be the last Ubisoft game on this list. It's average, especially after the amazing amount of hype that surrounded it. After the first E3 trailer, the game received more hype than most presidential elections. Then it went dark. Then it came back in a blaze of glory and revealed itself as... average. Average and buggy to no end. Speaking of which-

6. Assassin's Creed: Unity (Multiple):
[link]
    The game is literally bad news hell. First comes the news that there will be no female assassins, then comes Ubisoft's god awful PR team, then comes the actual game and it literally does not work. The game boasts it's co-op and yet that failed to work and caused the game to not work. I mean, it's not the fucking first game of it's kind, it's the seventh (eighth...? sixth...?) Assassin's game, how did it break so much? Clearly it wasn't the console gap, because Black Flag didn't break this bad. I'm honestly ashamed I have this game, but it came with my Xbone and Assassin's Creed IV, so it isn't too bad.

5. Rambo (PC):
    Oh this game... This game is amazing in the fact that it exists. It is literally the most off the fucking wall movie as a goddamn ON RAIL SHOOTER. It was 2014. How in gods name did they think this was a good idea? That'd be like releasing PONG as a new game.

4. Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 (iOS):
    Hey, remember that good game? Rollercoaster Tycoon? Where you could build the rides, customize everything, build a park to your liking? Yeah, this game says fuck all that, and treats the franchise as a goddamn pile of shit. I waited for a sequel for years, and yet the best I get is a game that you pay for, and then have to pay more for to unlock rides. It fucking sucks.

3. F.E.A.R. Online (PC):
    Remember that horror game? Yeah, somehow it was sent to Korea. Now it's a barely functioning online FPS Counter Strike rip off that is hacked constantly and has literally nothing to do with the original game aside from a single picture of Alma flashing on the screen every once in a while with a shock stinger sound. It's so awful, it's just not good.

2. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):
    There is no fucking reason for this game to exist in it's current state. Sonic Boom attempts to be everything at once. It uses Batman: Arkham Asylum combat, it has fast running scenes, it has 'platforming,' and it's just so fucking god awful. And the game was made by Red Button Entertainment, a company that is made up from people who worked at fucking Naughty Dog. Yes: Spyro, Uncharted, Last of Us, Naughty Dog. The game has huge framerate issues, and is so... bad. Like people say that Sonic 06 is bad, this is worse. Sonic 06 at least has a great fucking soundtrack and amazing graphics in the cutscenes. This game has no soundtrack or graphics in general. Fuck this game, and fuck anyone who says that it's good, because it fucking is not.

1. Slaughtering Grounds (PC):
    Here's a game you may not of heard of- The Slaughtering Grounds is piss poor in that it doesn't have a story, isn't programmed at all, and is a slightly updated DOOM. Again, SLIGHTLY. But that's average for indie games, the main reason why this game gets the shit award is because of how the 'developer' reacted. I could very easily explain the entire case, but I'll let Jim Sterling, the man who was on the receiving end of this meltdown, explain the reaction: [link]

And now, for some Honorable Mentions of good:

-
Alien: Isolation:
    I love the Xenomorph. This game is scary as shit. This game is good. They managed to make a good Alien game after Colonial Marines. Good on you.

- Five Nights at Freddy's 1 and 2:
    I don't like scary games, nor do I find the appeal of the gameplay here. But holy shit, do I love how much story has been smashed into it. It's creepy, fitting, and bizarre, and oh my god do I love the fan interpretations of the characters.

- The Walking Dead Season 2:
    I don't like point and click style games, but the game has so much going for it, I can't help but respect that.

- Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor:
    Tolkien's Middle Earth never really caught my eye until the first Hobbit movie. But, when a game catches my interest, it catches my interest. All I can say is that it takes balls to not only add additional lore into a well established and beloved franchise, but to also add new characters as well as do a good job of it is almost unheard of.

- InFamous: Second Sun:
    Yes, :iconmythica-chris:, I did have this here on the list. I don't own a PS4 however, so I can't exactly play the game.

- Shovel Knight:
    For those of you who grew up with NES graphics and games, this is your baby. The game is intuitive, fun, and has more cheat codes than any action replay (Or Gameshark). 

Well, I was going to do Top Ten Movies, Top Ten Worst Movies, and some TV show stuff, but this journal is long enough. This weekend, maybe.
Mature Content Filter is On
(Contains: strong language)
Essentially, it should be noted before I get into this bit of a rant that I am in no way attempting to criticize people who have grown attached to the characters that are the target of this rant. They both have good qualities and good voice acting as well as designs. However, their negative qualities, in my mind at least, actually far outweigh the good. So without further ado, a rant on Jaune Arc and Neptune Vasilias, two of my least favorite characters in the diverse literal rainbow that is RWBY.

Let's start off with the original problem, the blonde twat Jaune. In the first season, we we're introduced to Jaune and he instantly got some well deserved love. In a way, he represented the average audience member were they to attend Beacon: lost and clumsy and friendly. It's obvious to see why people liked him, his first line was to offer Ruby a hand and be her first friend at the new and somewhat uninviting school with a headmaster that can go from caring father to Jigsaw-like in two five minute episodes.

But halfway through the season, we were introduced to what has been 'lovingly' referred to as the 'Jaune Arc' (get it, it's a word pun like the rest of the show). A lot of the fans of the budding show were immediately angered by the copious amounts of attention this minor character of Team JNPR had been getting in a show supposedly centered around Team RWBY, who had strangely received little to no character development at the time. You see, to be honest, I never really found anything wrong with it. Sure, I'd have liked to have seen some- or any rather- of the actual main cast, but I digress. The point is that during this time, Jaune reveals that he never actually was accepted into the school to his teammate and obvious love interest, Phyrra Nikos. He instead faked his way in. The school bully (does it even matter if I mention his name? It means fuck all to the plot and gets mentioned maybe once in the series as a whole), who seems to only exist to make snide and/or racist comments and for this arc, finds out and blackmails him into essentially being his servant. The bully nearly forces him to betray his team, Jaune refuses, and actually shows some combat prowers in saving the bully from a creature of Grimm with Phyrra silently aiding him from the sidelines, thus convincing Jaune that he saved the bully himself. You see, I actually like this because of the fact that Jaune never needed to know anything about his teammates or that he needed them, he already knew that and openly admits it past this. Instead he learns that he needs to be more faithful and earn his place in Beacon. Everything becomes happy again, yay 'Jaune Arc' is over, onto Team RWBY for like two more episodes.

The major problem with Jaune comes with the second season's less than stellar Jaune Arc. Now let's preface this with the fact that within the first season Jaune developed a 'crush' of sorts on Team RWBY's Weiss Schnee, an heiress well known for her cold attitude. The above crush is in quotation marks because of the fact that it had about as much development as the plot of Minecraft: it doesn't. The problem with this crush is that it apparently negates Jaune's ability to back off because repeatedly he tries to wear down Weiss in order to go out with her, consistently and constantly asking her out after several, and I do mean SEVERAL, times, each time ending with the obvious 'no.' You see, this is obviously flat out not okay. Ever heard the phrase "no means no"? Yeah, it still applies in the sci-fi/fantasy world of Remnant. This 'crush' becomes so apparent within the main plot that it actually becomes the very backbone of the arc. It involves Jaune asking for advice from other men, unintentionally insulting Phyrha by not asking her out to the dance (even though anyone, fucking anyone, Lobot from fucking Star Wars, could see she has feelings for him), and then taking necessary plot and character development time from Team RWBY to add in a fucking useless as shit musical number of him asking Weiss out. In Red vs. Blue, where the characters are meant to be assholes, this would be fine. In RWBY, an action anime with some comedy, this shit does not, and should not fly. And the comes the ultimate idiocy, but since it involves the other dick of this dick-off, let's go into Neptune a bit first.

Neptune Vasilias was literally introduced within the trailer. His first appearance was to show off this badass gun that shoots lightning, literal lightning. How could this go wrong? You ask. Well it’s very simple. Let’s look at a comparable example: Yamcha from Akira Toriyama’s critically acclaimed world-renowned series, Dragon Ball. You look at him, and he screams badass. Lived in a desert for a few years and became a rogue, he looks tough, he’s scarred. How could he not be badass? Well, let me remind you that Yamcha lasts about one episode in Dragon Ball Z and is literally the weakest of all the main characters. How does this relate to Neptune? Because Neptune is literally what would happen if Yamcha was put into the RWBY universe.

Is he really that bad? Well, first let’s look at the fact that the first interaction he has in the show is with his teammate, Sun Wukong (one of my personal favorites). He is literally described as ‘cool’ and that’s it. He seems friendly enough though, and he looks like he really is good friends with Sun. Seem familiar to anyone else within their first appearance? Hint: the answer is Jaune. But that’s just with Sun. His first interaction is to literally hit on Weiss immediately, causing Weiss to, for [insert reason here], swoon over him. And that’s it. That’s literally all the development this ‘romance’ has over the season. Now let me note that this isn’t me being mad at him because he breaks [insert ship name here], because I can care less about that shit. With all the stuff that the teams are probably being put through (from training to school work to literally being the first and last line of defense for the civilized world) I don’t think that it’ll ever be a fully appropriate time to dedicate an entire arc to romance alone. No, I hate this character because he is so blandly crafted and written that he reminds me of goddamn Yamcha to the point of where they may as well have him dead and training for over half the season. Especially because the two fight scenes Neptune is in, the first one he almost immediately fails, getting knocked off of a fucking freeway like one minute into the fight (if only it had been a Saibamen, oh only if), the second one he doesn’t even fight. He and Sun say two lines of dialogue and do nothing (again, if only there had been a Saibamen…).

His entire personality is described by him as “cool” and “intellectual.” And that’s it. That is his personality in a nutshell, aside from the fact that he flirts with every goddamn woman in the show. He goes on a mission with Yang, flirts with her. He sees the twins from the Yellow trailer, flirts with them. He sees Weiss, flirts with her and actually gets somewhere.

“But Jurassic!” You exclaim, “You like Ninja Sex Party and they are known for being sexually explicit as a tanuki!” Quite right you are, but they do it for comedic purposes and when they do it, they don’t get anywhere. They don’t get rewarded for being sexist pigs, most of the time. And then there’s also the fact that NSP is a comedy group. RWBY is attempting, but failing rapidly, to take itself seriously.

But going off of that, let’s go to the situation that has me the most pissed off. So the school dance approaches, and Weiss decides to ask Neptune out. For some reason, later explained to be a lack of dancing skills, he rejects her. By the way, this is total bullshit. In the episode, we clearly see Neptune AT THE FUCKING DANCE. Like, do you know you don’t have to fucking dance, like seriously? You were planning on going to the dance, so in fear of having your reputation with the people you probably will never see again, you instead reject the girl who pines for you and go with your buddies, one of whom has a date. You see what I mean? Nothing about this character makes the least bit of sense!

But now onto the actual anger that comes from both the characters. Jaune is at the dance, alone. Ruby tells him that Weiss came alone. Jaune goes to ask her out but is inadvertently stopped by Phyrra, who is also alone (because Jaune is a fucking moron). They both depart for the balcony where Phyrra reveals that surprise, surprise, she’s alone at the dance. Phyrra then explains why she likes Jaune (which is supposed to be a shock, like how learning that water is wet is a shock) and departs. Jaune begins to go after her, but is stopped by pretty boy Neptune. Neptune begins the conversation commending the school on the party, but Jaune turns on him and accuses him of treating the girls he flirts with as objects. This is what we writers call “the kettle calling the pot black.” For the past fucking two seasons, Jaune has treated Weiss as if she’s a prize, her affections to be won over by persistence. Literally does he have any excuse to call him out on this? In my mind, he has no excuse at fucking all. Then Neptune drops the bombshell reason for why he didn’t go ‘he can’t dance.’ This prompts Jaune to tell him to be himself and take care of Weiss.

This entire fucking dialogue makes no goddamn sense. I understood the fucking ending to Mass Effect 3 better than I understood the characterization of these two kids. They contradict themselves, they leave themselves open for criticism, the only respectable trait they have is their designs and even that’s not enough to save them. And not only do they make themselves look bad, but they brought down a character that could have so much potential plot, Weiss.

Throughout the first half of season two, Weiss is literally written around Neptune. A lot of their dialogue is flirting, she attempts to get him to partner up with her, she asks him to the dance, she dances only with him. For the first half of the season, she had no character development, just “romance” development. The only slight development she has is claiming that she doesn’t like to be with guys because most of the time “they know her name too well and only want the recognition.” Well apparently Neptune isn’t one of these guys, eh Ice Queen? Oh wait, you can’t know about that because you’ve only had five lines of dialogue with the guy. Fuck we have Hans and Anna and Elsa merged into one, now all we’re missing is a snowman and a reindeer and we have an abysmal straight-to-DVD Disney sequel with Elsa being the one to get married after knowing a guy for a day.

Who knows though, maybe when she inevitably gets dumped by Yamcha maybe she’ll rebound back with even more plot and guilt-driven drama, maybe she’ll even meet Vegeta. Has this joke of Neptune being Yamcha bored any of you yet? Because it made me bored before I even made the joke.

So why are these two characters a problem? Well first off, they’re acted and written by the two writers Kerry Shawcross and Miles Luna. Now let me preface this again by saying I have nothing against these two, in fact I love them a lot. A lot of what they appear in is humorous and funny, and when they write dialogue and plot well, they really write it fucking well. The entire escapade with Dr. Oobleck in the later half of season two was genius. And see, this always becomes the issue when you literally insert yourself into the series. Inevitably you want your character to be interesting, so you overwrite or do something so unbelievably stupid that it becomes a big fucking mess. I know, I'm guilty of that myself, and I'm the first person to admit it. But the unforgivable thing is the fact that they do treat Weiss as an object rather than a person, even when writing the script. I mean, do you mean to tell me that they just looked at the script, saw this big goddamn circle logic they wrote, and said “eh, it’s okay?” Do you think that in a show that's meant to center around four girls, that not a single one of them would say "yes, this was a good decision?" Do you really think that in a real world situation, this would actually happen? I mean, I have no clue how the fuck this got into the series and approved through so many people. I have more clue as to how Sonic Boom (The Wii U game, not the show) got greenlit for sale. It's so fucking strange and stupid, to be blunt.

Quite frankly, this supposed "love triangle" between Jaune, Weiss, and Neptune is much more like a loosely put together collage with the glue holding the pictures together losing its effect. It says fucking volumes when a Cartoon Network show for kids can have a better "love triangle" than an online series from one of the internets leading content provider world-wide. I mean, they practically got payed to translate RWBY to Japanese. Can't wait until they translate this scene in Japan and the series begins to lose steam.

And obviously, it isn't all the male characters that suck. It's only these two that act like sniveling skirt-chasers who can barely form a sentence without tripping over their oversized tongues. Lie-Ren, a member of Jaune's team and voiced by SERIES CREATOR Monty Oum, is kind, caring, and openly admits that he cares about his best friend (who everyone wants to be his love interest) Nora Valkyrie. Sun Wukong, the leader of Neptune's team and voiced by Michael Jones, a man who came to RoosterTeeth because of his violent verbal outbursts, spent the last two episodes (which they reveal to be a weekend) of the first season taking care of Blake without her even saying a word to him, never asking anything in return. He then goes on to try to be friendly with her for the entire second season, trying to protect her, again without asking for anything. And even when he does ask her to the dance, when she says no, he accepts that. Perhaps Sun needs to teach his team a few more things other than combat... provided that the other two members of his team actually show up.

So yeah, that’s my rant on Neptune Vasilias and Jaune Arc. Can I seriously get the Saibamen treatment for Neptune? Seriously? I would love that a lot.
The Arc/Vasailis Problem
You know, if you told me five years ago that I'd be complaining about the attempts of romance within a Rooster Teeth production, I'd be more surprised that it wasn't about Geoff and Gus.

Let's line these up in order of importance.

First off, I got Omega Ruby and Smash for the Wii U. They're fun. Somewhat regretting my choice of Blaziken over Sceptile, but oh well, I'll just buy Sapphire soon. Smash Wii U makes the 3DS version completely obsolete. It looks better, plays better, sounds better, and is better. Literally the only good reason to buy smash 3DS is for Mewtwo, and even then that's debatable... I mean, $30 USD for one character isn't really worth it...

And now for something infinitely more important.

Ferguson.

Tired of hearing about Ferguson yet? Well bollocks to that, I'm tired of being able to go on any website and seeing the floods of white cop vs. black unarmed [insert gender/age] news. It's rather sickening and saddening to see America not FALL to this level, but to see how we truly have yet to rise above it.

The 50s have returned in a force equitable to Germany post WWI.

Racism is found aplenty. Don't think this is about race?

jurassicraptor.tumblr.com/imag…

That picture clearly shows KKK members protesting within Ferguson. Haven't seen that photo yet? Are you really surprised when everything is focused on the darkest of skin? I bet that I could comb through hours of media coverage of the current protests in Ferguson, and will not see anything BUT African Americans. Sickening, really.

But you know what, let's forget about that and focus on the actual crime committed by the literal trash incarnate, Darren Wilson.

"Mike Brown was a thief!"

anarcho-queer.tumblr.com/post/…

Here "he" (again, there is no confirmation on if this is Mike Brown, nor can we trust police reports as evidenced below) is paying for the cigarettes he "stole," provided that is him. Furthermore, Wilson had absolutely no idea that the "crime" had even been committed, just that a black kid was jaywalking.

Or the fact that the report for the "robbery" was filed four minutes after the report of Brown's death:
40.media.tumblr.com/f469bdc064…

"Do you really think Wilson got up and decided to just randomly kill a black kid?"

Well, here's the thing. Wilson is a well known pile of crap.

Here he is threatening (and then arresting) someone for (legally) filming him: 
thefreethoughtproject.com/shoc…

Here he is roughing up and then illegally searching a car for drugs:
news.yahoo.com/attorney-fergus…
www.scribd.com/doc/238797133/C…

Here is a report from multiple people claiming that Wilson had racially profiled them:
www.fafmag.com/news/darren-wil…

Here is a video (about two/thirds in) where another black teen admits that Darren Wilson pulled him over on false charges and was highly aggressive with him:

Here are fifteen questions that have links to "answers" for Darren Wilson:
www.dailykos.com/story/2014/10…

And the final nail in the coffin right in Darren's forehead, is his previous job, a police officer on a force that was VOTED TO BE DISBANDED DUE TO CORRUPTION:
www.washingtonpost.com/nationa…

And just to show how much of a piece of shit the entire Ferguson Police force is, here is a page describing how the force lied, and Brown was not the reported 33-35ft, but 145ft from Wilson's SUV:
www.dailykos.com/story/2014/10…

Now, let's go over exactly what probably happened during the Brown-Wilson "altercation," if you can call a cold blooded murder an altercation, much like how you can call a hand grenade a nuclear device. You can either believe in the ONE witness that talked about Brown as if he was a deranged, devilish beast, OR you can listen to the several eyewitness reports, private autopsies commissioned by the Brown family, as well as almost anyone but the Ferguson police.

Here's a few rundowns on several inconsistencies by activist Shaun King:
chewiesmiles.tumblr.com/……;
storify.com/laurahib/shaun-kin…
storify.com/…/mike-brown…;

And here is Forensic Pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht talking about how everything Wilson has said, was complete bullshit:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWUkBx…

But you know what, let's do exactly what the country's doing and forget about the actual crime, and instead focus on the "riots" and protests within the city (as well as several other populous cities including Seattle and New York City to name a few, with even celebrities such as Macklemore joining the Seattle protest).

Now the "riot"-ing began really during this small time period that we may recognize as the 1950s and 1960s, only instead it was lead by a different person. Literally, go back in history and you can cut and paste scenes from the various Civil Rights Movement protests into the modern day, especially in the police presence.

It isn't hard to find evidence of GROSS overuse of power and firearms. Armored vehicles, rifles, tear gas, guns, attack dogs just to name a few of the weapons of mass destruction, to be frank, used against the primarily peaceful protestors.

(Now I feel as though I should clarify here that I in no way condone the violent actions performed by a minority of the protesters, though I will admit that when they are told that they are nothing more than mobile, dark shooting gallery pieces, that tends to piss off people, much like how taking away some of Ferguson's toys during the protests would likely change this badass police force into a bunch of crying babies.)

Here to address the overuse of force, is John Oliver:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUdHIa…

And it's not only the overuse of these military tanks that deserve the attention, it's the overuse of tear gas. Some of you may recognize this
rack.2.mshcdn.com/media/ZgkyMD…
photo of a man throwing an exploding tear gas grenade away from a group of kids.

OR the fact that the tear gas used was also the exact same brand used in the WAR zone of Palestine and the highly unstable government situation of Egypt.
www.interference.cc/…/tu…;

OR THE FUCKING FACT that Palestine civilians, during a period where they were LITERALLY being bombed out, sent messages of encouragement to Ferguson, MO.
i.huffpost.com/…/1966…

ALL OF THIS being LITERALLY illegal under the 1st ammendment to the United States Constitution, as it very plainly violates the right of the Ferguson populous to petition and assemble:

Speaking of the 1st ammendment, let's now focus on other unconstitutional actions committed by the wonderful Ferguson Police. Such as the very beautiful confession by a cop:
www.zerohedge.com/…/ferg…;

Or let's focus on how they literally attempted to force Amnesty International, a group dedicated to giving and monitoring equal and human rights, to leave the country after their FIRST call to action within the US.
www.infowars.com/police-fire-t…

Or how they are now stating that the entire police force has committed Human Rights abuses:
www.reuters.com/…/us-usa…;

OR how they had literally made it illegal to stop moving for even a few seconds during protests:
www.msnbc.com/msnbc/aclu-first…

OR (And this is my favorite) how DURING a meeting where the Police Chief of Ferguson announced that they were NOT AT ALL tear-gassing reporters, news network Al-Jazeera was TEAR-GASSED and forced to move their set-up.
melaniekillingervowell.files.w…;

And then there's the reports of the rioting causing property damage. First off, here's two gangs publicly defending a store instead of, maybe, the police force.
40.media.tumblr.com/…/tu…;

Or the fact that several people have gone on record to report that people not from the Ferguson area, were primarily the ones torching or vandalizing property in an attempt to start more fires and issues with less chance of their sorry asses being caught.

So by now, if you've even bothered reading to this point, you're probably hoping that I go back to doing nothing but liking and sharing posts of dogs. But I'm not. I'm going deeper into this travesty with a few final points.

One: the photos of Wilson's injuries are pathetic. His ONE bruise on his cheek and small speck on his chin look better than my fingers after the seventeen years of having to repeatedly draw blood from them. His "bruise" on the back of his neck is nothing more than a literal skin condition.
www.huffingtonpost.com/……;
31.media.tumblr.com/…/tu…;
thefayef.tumblr.com/…/th…;

Two: A testimony from Wilson saying that he has no fucking clue what "in control" means
33.media.tumblr.com/…/tu…;

Three: The fact that the National Bar Association is attempting to investigate and charge Wilson
38.media.tumblr.com/…/tu…;

Four: Wilson's blatant unwillingness to carry a non-lethal taser.
38.media.tumblr.com/…/tu…;

Five: MSNBC. You cannot trust their latest poll on whether Wilson should've been indicted. Why? Because users of the world famous website 4chan have managed to find a way to spam the "yes, the jury made the right decision" button to where it gains 500 votes every second. It isn't a factual poll, it's an internet hacker's project.
33.media.tumblr.com/…/tu…;
softwaring.tumblr.com/…/…;

And then six, reserved for the devil himself: Wilson on a TV interview, for which he is paid about $500k USD, states outright that he would kill Mike again, should he be given the chance to relive it. So not only has this man got off scott free for killing an unarmed civilian, but he also was given paid leave and over half a million dollars. My two parents actually work to help children and don't kill them, yet they will never see that kind of money as teachers. I plan on going into writing and biology, it will take a shitload of luck for me to even make half of that half. And yet all this man did was commit the ultimate sin of taking another man, not even a man, just a kid's, life and he gets paid up the butt for it. If that does not sum up what is truly wrong in this situation, I do not know what does. And that is not even considering all of the bullshit that went down in the actual indictment trial.
www.rawstory.com/…/darre…

Seven: The fact that grand jury's refuse to indict people about 0.0004% of the time (For those that don't know, an indictment means that the jury did not find ample evidence to bring the case to court). Meaning that somehow in this case with more discrepancy than a creationist at a paleontology convention, not a single bit of evidence in the mind of the jurors found the remote possibility that Darren Wilson committed some crime.
fivethirtyeight.com/…/fe…

Eight: Evidence uncovered by world-renowned hackers from Anonymous claim to link Darren Wilson with the Klu Klux Klan. I don't know but that's a pretty damning piece of evidence on whether this was somewhat premeditated. 
www.ibtimes.co.uk/anonymous-fe…

The point of why I'm saying all of this, is to remind us all that we live in a goddamned country that was founded specifically on the genocide of its native people, and the labor of an enslaved people. And I would more than venture to say that it is still being built by them. And to those that look at the protests and riots and say that if they want to be heard, they need to take a nonviolent approach, I would love to point out what happened to both Gandhi and MLK Jr. when they took that approach.

So if you're fucking tired of hearing about Ferguson, I want you to sit back and think about how fucking exhausting it is to fucking live it.

And if you really think that Wilson's actions are justified, I want you to sit back, and read this:
pokediginut.deviantart.com/…;
Something written by a very good friend (:iconpokediginut:) of mine, who can describe what I will never truly be able to know.

And to those that stand with Wilson, I know I cannot change your mind, but know you are fighting an uphill battle that will end specifically the way these civil rights disputes always have, with Wilson as Lee Harvey Oswald and Brown as Abraham Lincoln.

Images of people going out and cleaning up Ferguson after the first night of protests. Won't see these anytime soon.

To the Director of Project 115-U:

Dear Director, we wish to inquire as to the true nature of this study, seeing as though we have seen little to no actual physical reaction from the five Pokémon we have sent you. If you fail to recall exactly which species we sent you, they were a Gothitelle, a Conkeldurr, a Gallade, a Leavanny, and a Sceptile, all equipped with weapons and armors suited for their natures…

Let me be frank in stating that we wish for nothing more than to see the progress of these individuals so we can either confirm or deny the effects of having an artificial intelligence in some agents being positive ones. Nevertheless, we hope for nothing more than a beautiful partnership and the furthering of military sciences into the field.

-The Chairman of Unovan Military and Naval Affairs (UMNA) Oversight Committee


The base was dark, seemingly subterranean, and had the style of metal covering it that made it appear as if it may as well be a space ship. Still, even in the most inhospitable of places, life persists, as clearly evidenced by the line of eleven Pokémon gathered in front of a single female human.

The human was pale, not a sickly pale, but the pale that comes from a life dedicated to research over recreation, as evidenced by her slightly smaller than average size and weight as well as the glasses planted firmly onto her face. Unlike most of the other personal, she didn’t wear a nametag, simply a lab coat with a crest on the left breast and the numbers 115 on her right. She almost seemed transfixed on the Pokémon that stood before her, marveled at their differences in size, and the various weapons and armors that they currently wore.

The Pokémon by definition of being Pokémon, were extraordinary in their own right, some possessing the body masses rivaling that of super soldiers of comics, others sleek and unassuming like perfectly camouflaged predators.

“Progress…” She began, “is what separates the prehistoric from the modern. The first life form to learn to create fire, will become the dominate species. The first country to create a weapon of mass destruction will be the one to dominate the world…” She looked through the ranks of Pokémon standing at full attention in front of her, studying them with an unfounded curiosity.

The man standing behind her, wearing a similar scientific getup, simply watched his superior as she went through the ranks on her own rant. She was far too grey and wrinkled for how old she really was, yet it wasn’t that which caught the man’s eyes, but the various Pokémon species laid out in front of him, just ripe to turn into the weapons that would lead whoever held their power into the central position of power in a new world order.

“Our goal with this project is simple, to create weapons that will be designed for peace, not war. Peace that will be achieved by any means necessary. Casualties will have to be made; not all of you will make it out alive, but know that all those who will die will die for a promise that has escaped this world for far too long: peace,” The woman went on, stopping as she reached the end of the line of Pokémon, “Whether or not you agree with me is inconsequential, because I am in charge of this facility. You all may refer to me as the Director of Project 115-U. Counselor, if you may.”
The man who stood behind her quietly stepped forward before clearing his throat before speaking, taking the attention of the Pokémon who were staring at the Director as she walked off, pulling a small tablet out of her pocket.

“For those of you who are new to the project, I’ll be frank. Our goal is to create Pokémon that will terrify even the worst of what came out of Orre during the first Shadow outbreak. Our tests will determine whether or not the idea of super soldier Pokémon are viable or not-” The Counselor stated before coughing, a side effect from the cigarettes sticking out of his pocket, “Sorry… The point is, from now on, what you used to refer to yourself as is irrelevant, you will instead be given callsigns to refer to yourself as, and will use these at all possible moments. When I give you your new name, please head to the armory to be suited up.” He started with the first Pokémon, a relatively small looking and diminutive shiny Leavanny.

“Rhode Island.” The Leavanny nodded before walking to where the Counselor directed. He moved to the next one,

“Ohio.” To a short looking Gallade who carried a bored look before following suit,

“Virginia.” To a female shiny Gardevoir with her hair in a ponytail,

“West Virginia.” To a stronger looking male Gardevoir with shorter hair,

“Michigan.” To a rather strong Conkeldurr who moved along without a pair of concrete blocks,

“Maine.” To a Shiny Sceptile with no other discerning features,

“Connecticut.” To a shiny female Mienshao who nodded before scampering off,

“Kansas.” To a Zoroark with a rather long scar down his chest and a rather wicked smirk,

“Georgia.” To an Infernape who nodded before sauntering off, attracting the stares of more than just a few of the personal at the base,

“Indiana.” To a Lilligant who quietly walked off, a blissful look within her eyes and a slightly maliciously innocent smile on her face.

“And finally, California.” The Counselor finished as he stood in front of a rather proud looking Gothitelle, who nodded before walking towards the designated area. After the eleven Pokémon had moved on, a simple man approached the Counselor.

“Sir, with all due respect… do you really think this will work? The reports file most of them under insane or clinically unstable…” The man stated, avoiding the piercing stare of the Counselor.

“All we can do is trust the director… Do you trust her?” The Counselor asked, before turning and walking off.

*A few months later*

“Hey?”

“Yeah?”

“You ever wonder why we’re here…?”

“Well, I think god put-”

“No, no, no. I mean, why the fuck are we here? In a goddamn volcano on the middle of a goddamn rig. I mean, it’s not like we’re drilling for fucking oil here, so why are we on a rig?” One guard stated as he and his partner patrolled the outside of a rig-like building, designed specifically to stay upright despite the fact that it stood over a gigantic pit of fire and flames.

“Look, I don’t fucking know, I just stay here because I get great fucking reception.” The other replied

“That’s not what I mea- wait, you actually get reception?”

“Yeah, 20gbps… It makes downloading my movies so fucking easy…”

“I can’t even get reception…” The guard shook his head to refocus, “That’s not important. I mean, they just discovered this thing, so why the fuck are we guarding it instead of dissecting it?”

“I don’t fucking know, I just like getting paid.” The second guard stated, leaning up against the wall.

“… But you said less than an hour ago that you hated how they didn’t pay us…” The first guard stated, staring at the other one quizzically.

“R-right,” The second guard stated, turning, “Let’s continue with the patrol…”

“The patrol ends here…” The first guard un-holstered his gun and aimed it at the other guard

“Well… you’ve caught me…” The second guard stated before grabbing a nearby pipe, ripping it off the wall, and smacking the first guard unconscious with it. As he picked up the unconscious guard, the form he was currently in changed back into its natural form.

The Zoroark didn’t seem all that much out of the ordinary, just that he had gold shoulder pads and a gold helmet holding his hair down, he decided that the relative closeness to lava would be a good excuse to not wear the cape that went along with the ensemble this time.
He quickly set the unconscious man in the nearest closet and quickly illusioned himself into the appearance of the man he had just taken out.

“That was too close…” He muttered as he walked towards the location marked on his helmet’s HUD (Heads-Up-Display). Due to his superb ability to trick the perception of all those around him, he continued to walk through, undetected, to his goal, a rather large computer and a recently opened vault.

“Damn,” He muttered as he stared at the vault inscribed with the insignia of the Johto Intelligence Agency. He put a hand up to his ear. “Command, come in, this is Agent Lok-,” He sighed, “Kansas… Agent Kansas…”

“We’re reading you Kansas, do you have the directive?” A monotone voice buzzed in his ear.
“No, they already moved it,” He explained as he walked over to the computer and began typing commands on the keyboard, “Give me a minute and I can hack into the mainframe and discover the location of it.”

“Roger. What of Agent Indiana?” The voice asked.

“She’s here?” Kansas asked, actually surprised until he felt a hand on his chest that slowly made its way up to his shoulder.

“To be honest, I prefer the old armor you wore better…” A cuter higher pitched voice behind him stated, causing Kansas to leap forward and slam into the computer before turning to face whoever was behind him.

“Aw, now look at what you’ve done.” The Lilligant in front of him stated, smiling.

To say that she enjoyed pink was an understatement. The armor she currently wore would barely be considered armor to the simple man who knew nothing about the experiments being unleashed at Project 115-U. The petals that made up the average Lilligant’s dress had been shortened; spread farther from the Pokémon’s body, displaying her legs and feet and had turned pink, even the flower that adorned every Lilligant’s head was pink. Covering the petals that barely covered her was a light alloy that hardened when hit but still remained light when not in combat. She consistently reminded everyone that she created the armor and loved it more than any of her other creations.

“What I’ve done? You’re not supposed to be here! You’re supposed to be covering me!” Kansas growled, the anger building in him slowly causing his form to dissipate

“I am covering you,” The Lilligant smiled, a smile that only seemed to anger the Zoroark more, “I wanted to tell you that you just triggered an alarm.” In shock, the Zoroark turned around to notice that he had indeed accidently triggered an alarm on the system. Within seconds, the stereotypical red lights lit up the entire platform, a loud ringing signalling that the rig was no longer a secret.

“Oh you’ve got to be kidding me…” Kansas muttered as he quickly grabbed as much data as he could from the computer before grabbing Indiana and running.

“Alert! Alert! There are two intruders within the rig!” A voice repeated over the entire rig. The two Pokemon ducked behind cover as a volley of various bullets hailed over their heads.

"What the hell just happened Kansas!?" A voice over the Zoroark's headset roared
"We've been compromised, we need extraction." The fox Pokemon answered

"Disappointing" The feminine voice of the Director disapprovingly muttered over the headset.

"Aw. Now you've made her mad." Indiana giggled, causing her teammate to growl at her.

"Shut up, we have to go.” The Zoroark growled, pulling out a staff adorned with a Dark Gem. Likewise, the Liligant pulled out a parasol tipped with a Sun Stone. Stepping out from behind the cover, the Zoroark’s gem radiated black before shooting out a Dark Pulse at two of the unfortunate guards. When another guard took aim at the fox pokemon, he was obliterated by the bright flash that came from the tip of the Liligant’s floral parasol, a very potent flash cannon.

The two began running towards the landing pad located a few meters from them, both continued to take out any guards that stood in their way. As they reached the edge of the landing pad, a shot rang out that missed Kansas’s head by a few centimeters.

“Shit, snipers!” Kansas yelled, ducking behind a podium, Indiana took cover behind a pillar.

“We’re going to have to get past them!” Indiana yelled

“I know that!” Kansas replied, thinking, “Grab one of the bodies, and move up!”

“Right!”

“On my mark!” The Zoroark announced, getting ready. “Mark!”

“Sync!” They both yelled in unison as they traded places, Indiana grabbing a body of a fallen soldier. Instantly, the flower pokemon stood back up and began running towards the landing pad using the body as a shield. Kansas followed close behind, covering her with a Shadow Ball every once and a while.

Once they had reached the door to the landing pad, Indiana tossed the body away while Kansas got to work opening the door. Smashing the control pad with his staff, the door opened.

“We’re in!” He yelled, the two ran into the landing pad, firing attacks at everything ahead of them. Running a few more feet, they reached the center of the landing pad. Within seconds however, several dozens of guards had surrounded them on the catwalks surrounding the landing pad, all of the guards commanded by a single man armed with a large automatic gun.

“Attention dicks. You have this one chance to surrender, I suggest you take it.” He announced, aiming his rifle at the two pokemon before him.

Unbeknownst to him, behind him a Gothitelle teleported into the fray. Almost immediately, one of the men nearby her took notice and turned to aim at her, only to be kicked away by the Gothitelle. Kicking another soldier nearby her, the Gothitelle used psychic to pick up the two men before tossing them into the crowds of soldiers, knocking most of them down.

“You’ve got to be kidding!” Kansas growled

“What?” Indiana asked, not facing the same direction he was.

“They sent her in!” Kansas explained.

Jumping away from the group, she landed in front of the two agent Pokemon.

“Alright…” California muttered to herself, cracking her neck, “Let’s see what they can do…”

“Get them!” The commander yelled, instantly several soldiers began open fire at the group. Before the bullets could get them, however, the Gothitelle managed to catch them all with a single psychic attack, sending them all towards the main portion of the rig. She then used a very powerful psywave to destroy the various catwalks, propelling most of the soldiers onto the landing pad. The two other agent pokemon took their approaches too, firing at various soldiers with their various attacks, though not as quickly or powerfully as the pokemon near them.

Eventually, the commander regained his footing and stood back up, aiming his rifle again, he took aim at the Zoroark and fired. The Zoroark yelped with pain as the bullets collided with his back, he fell instantly. The Gothitelle saw this and growled, using Psychic she lifted the man off the ground before violently slamming him back into it repeatedly, before, just for good measure, throwing him as far as she could off the rig with psychic.

Whilst she did this, Indiana managed to prop the injured Zoroark against the wall of the landing pad.

“Command. We have wounded. We need immediate extractio-” The Liligant managed before being grabbed by California.

“You’re ride’s here.” She explained before teleporting away. Several of the soldiers looked around at the sudden disappearance of the three Pokemon, until an engine began to sputter to life. Suddenly, a rather large VTOL, looking somewhat like a shorter, stubbier, and more rotund jet plane, appeared before the landing platform, its side doors open.

Standing within the vehicle were the three pokemon. The Gothitelle waved at the guards as the doors shut. Quickly, the VTOL turned, and took off from the rig as it began exploding

Inside the vehicle, Kansas struggled to strap himself in before passing out from the pain. California however, walked calmly towards the cockpit before sitting in the co-pilot seat.

“Hello Agent California,” A masculine voice announced within the cockpit.

“Hello U.N.O.S., are we all present and accounted for?” California asked, strapping herself into her seat.

“Yes. All agents are on board and accounted for.” The voice answered.

“Good…” California muttered before checking the list, “Hey, what’s this blank spot doing here…?”

“That is classified, Agent California.” UNOS replied.

“Fuck...”

“You’re late.” She said to the pilot, the rather attractive female Infernape.

“Eh, sue me.” Georgia dismissed, flying the VTOL.

“Hello Agent California,” A masculine voice announced within the cockpit.

“Hello U.N.O.S., are we all present and accounted for?” California asked, strapping herself into her seat.

“Yes. All agents are on board and accounted for.” The voice answered.

“Good…” California muttered before checking the list, “Hey, what’s this blank spot doing here…?”

“That is classified, Agent California.” UNOS replied.

“Fuck...” California muttered before logging off the system.

“Make any friends?” Georgia jokingly asked, making note of their current position.

“Not any that we’ll see for a long time. Hopefully.” California muttered

“Oh well, not everyone can be as good at making friends as me.” Georgia mused

“If by friends you mean fuck-buddies, then yes. Not everyone can be that good.”

“Hey, I take them as I see them.” Georgia mused, before being alerted to a red flashing light on her dashboard. “We got stalkers!”

“Indiana, make sure that thing isn’t screwing with us!” California commanded. Behind them, the Liligant looked through the window behind the crew cabin and saw that there were indeed two jets chasing them.

“We got two!” Indiana announced, “Can I take them out? Please, please, please!?”

“We have less than thirty minutes from home base, we can survive that long-” Georgia explained before an explosion rocked this ship. “Right. Fuck. They have missiles.”

“That’s bad.” California observed.

“Yes, it sucks.” Another explosion rocked the VTOL, another red-light appeared on the dashboard.

“We got two more!” Indiana announced

“Crap.” Georgia groaned, panicking a bit. Thinking, she flipped a few switches, “Indiana you are cleared for equipment usage.”

“Yes!” The Liligant cheered before climbing up onto the top of the VTOL.

“Indiana, you know what to do.” Georgia explained, keeping the VTOL steady.

“When don’t I?” Indiana smiled, pulling out her parasol and aiming it away from her. Her face twisted into a strained look, and the sun stone on her parasol began to glow. Slowly the glowing grew until the stone was a pure white. Smiling, the Liligant released a massive Solar Beam from the parasol, larger than the VTOL itself. Aiming the beam, it managed to take out two of the pursuing jets before it slowly dissipated. Most of her energy spent, the Liligant fell back into the crew cabin of the VTOL.

“She got two of them.” California observed, “Can we make it back-?”

As she asked that, several explosions occurred behind the VTOL, somewhat rocking it. From the ocean below them, the coast two large turrets surrounded by the green Unovan land, occasionally lighting up the coast by firing off high explosive rounds. signified the VTOL’s return to the mainland. Immediately, one of the pursuing jets was obliterated by the turret fire. Seeing their wingman obliterated within the night sky, the other jet attempted to retreat, only to meet a similar fate as the first jet. Georgia breathed a sigh of relief.

“115-U-Central, this is Georgia requesting permission to land.”

“Roger that Georgia, you are cleared to land, and may I say welcome home.” UNOS announced, a small helipad extending from the coast.

“Roger that 115-U-C, good to be back.” Georgia replied, prepping the VTOL for landing.
Recollection: 115-U Saga Part 1
Yeah... I've actually had the first part of this part written for about half of a year... Haven't really gotten the urge to do it for some reason until now, again for some reason.

So... yay

What...?

...

It's over...?

What the fuck?

Well, since 2014 is over, may as well recount some good things that happened... and some negative things. And what's better than to do that with Video Games, Movies, and Television/Online Media formatted like TV? I mean, there are several, but I don't have the tools to do any of them.

Now, of course, there are some rules. There will be no remakes on the lists, because that isn't really a new thing, just a remake. The top ten are games that I have played or at the very least have and have no reason to doubt their goodness. The bottom ten... You'll see why they're rated so low... Movies are all ones that I have seen, however (un)fortunate that may be. And TV shows, you get the idea.

Video Games
Top Ten:


10. Goat Simulator (PC):
[link]
    This may come as a bit of a shock to you all, but I adore the freaky game. Despite being what most consider a joke game, the developers have kept up with updates, support, and even a free MMO upgrade. How the fuck they did that, I have no clue. Goat Simulator is definitely not a fantastic game, but that's where it's charm comes in: in the modern video game market, companies are trying their damnedest to try to out-scare, out-graphics, out-userbase, etc. each other in a modern nuclear arms race. Goat Simulator says "Fuck all that, have a goat in a jetpack that just summoned satan himself from a pentagram on the hill."

9. Octodad: Dadliest Catch (PC):
[link]
    Broken physics? Check. Interspecies relationships? Check. Tentacles? Check...? Octodad is one of those weird games that look stupid and awful, but provide some of the best commentary and the best glitches (As annoying as they may be). It's so stupid and hard to control, that it becomes fun to look back on. And with co-op where everyone can control a limb individually... J- Just put Mario Party in, it'll be less painful.

8. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Wii U):
    Yes, there's an expand dong joke here, but I'm not making it because the game is fun. Co-op between the four main Kongs, platforming, interesting enemies, and a fantastic atmosphere all combine to make a great game. It's Donkey Kong Country. Do I need to explain further?

7. Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):
    What do you get when you combine Dynasty Warriors, and Nintendo's green boy - Link? You get a game that does a better job of being the Dragonborn than Skyrim. You can mow down enemies, you can use the familiar items of Zelda, you can PLAY as Zelda, the game feels more like a fan-project than a Nintendo game, and that's a good thing. Plus it brings back Ruto! Yes, the fish breasts are back... for a reason.

6. Captain Toad, Treasure Tracker (Wii U):
    It's revolutionary. Nintendo practically defined the platforming genre, and now they've redefined it again. Who'd have ever thought a platforming game with no jumping would be so fun. A puzzle/platform, Cpt. Toad provides fresh levels, beautiful designs, and a fucking amazing soundtrack. Nintendo not only managed to make a new idea for platforming, but they've also managed to turn a minigame into a full fledged amazing game.

5. Dragon Age: Inquisition (Multiple):
    Going to be honest, haven't had a great run with Bioware recently. But, Dragon Age combines fantasy and the classic Bioware feel, and a character creation that puts Saints Row to shame. It's fun.

4. Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):
    A badass woman, angels and demons, gunplay, and hair. It's good. I don't even have to play it to recommend it because this game is being called one of the best of the modern age, and that's saying a lot considering how much people were shitting on SEGA's decision to make the game a Wii U exclusive.

3. Kirby: Triple Deluxe (3DS):
    Kirby. Kirby. Kirby. It's the pink ball of what I presume to be rubber. It's cute, it's beautiful, the power-ups are badass, and the game is amazing. It honestly reminds me of playing Kirby 64 and just playing the same level over and over again and still feeling the same happy "This is nice" feeling.

2. Super Smash Bros. (Wii U):
    Over 50 characters, DLC characters on the way, Sakurai being... Sakurai. There isn't a reason not to purchase this game. For once, you can actually efficiently play online with friends, or do eight character brawls, or do your own thing. I enjoy this game, but the only thing better than it is-

1. Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):
    This game. This fucking game. This game is the game that has pretty much saved the Wii U financially. Millions of copies sold, DLC purchased in droves, Let's plays more popular than horror games (for a while at least). It's smooth, nearly perfect, and completely and utterly beautiful. Like this game is more beautiful than any on the above list. Nintendo heard the complaints about graphics on the Wii, so they took the dial up to infinity. I fucking love this game.

Bottom Ten:

10. Oh, this game will give me shit. Destiny (Multiple):
    Let's face it. We all heard the idea, we all saw how beautiful and fun the beta was, so we bought the hype instantly. What we got was an adequate FPS trying desperately to be both Borderlands and Halo while trying to mix other popular MMO's in. It didn't hold my intention past the first month, which pisses me off more than anyone could ever imagine. It's story isn't. There isn't a story, just a loose path. It's not bad as much as it is utterly disappointing.

9. Tomodachi Life (3DS):
    You've heard my rant on this, it's a god sim to an island of non-believers. It's boring, tedious, and gives you less control than in an average mobile game. It's just not good.

8. Titanfall (Multiple):
    Again, not as bad as it was average. It's an FPS with giant robots, and, while it has it's moments, it's no different than just average FPS games. I loved it for the first few months, but as with all FPS games, it's lifespan is regrettably short.

7. Watch Dogs (Multiple):
    This will definitely not be the last Ubisoft game on this list. It's average, especially after the amazing amount of hype that surrounded it. After the first E3 trailer, the game received more hype than most presidential elections. Then it went dark. Then it came back in a blaze of glory and revealed itself as... average. Average and buggy to no end. Speaking of which-

6. Assassin's Creed: Unity (Multiple):
[link]
    The game is literally bad news hell. First comes the news that there will be no female assassins, then comes Ubisoft's god awful PR team, then comes the actual game and it literally does not work. The game boasts it's co-op and yet that failed to work and caused the game to not work. I mean, it's not the fucking first game of it's kind, it's the seventh (eighth...? sixth...?) Assassin's game, how did it break so much? Clearly it wasn't the console gap, because Black Flag didn't break this bad. I'm honestly ashamed I have this game, but it came with my Xbone and Assassin's Creed IV, so it isn't too bad.

5. Rambo (PC):
    Oh this game... This game is amazing in the fact that it exists. It is literally the most off the fucking wall movie as a goddamn ON RAIL SHOOTER. It was 2014. How in gods name did they think this was a good idea? That'd be like releasing PONG as a new game.

4. Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 (iOS):
    Hey, remember that good game? Rollercoaster Tycoon? Where you could build the rides, customize everything, build a park to your liking? Yeah, this game says fuck all that, and treats the franchise as a goddamn pile of shit. I waited for a sequel for years, and yet the best I get is a game that you pay for, and then have to pay more for to unlock rides. It fucking sucks.

3. F.E.A.R. Online (PC):
    Remember that horror game? Yeah, somehow it was sent to Korea. Now it's a barely functioning online FPS Counter Strike rip off that is hacked constantly and has literally nothing to do with the original game aside from a single picture of Alma flashing on the screen every once in a while with a shock stinger sound. It's so awful, it's just not good.

2. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):
    There is no fucking reason for this game to exist in it's current state. Sonic Boom attempts to be everything at once. It uses Batman: Arkham Asylum combat, it has fast running scenes, it has 'platforming,' and it's just so fucking god awful. And the game was made by Red Button Entertainment, a company that is made up from people who worked at fucking Naughty Dog. Yes: Spyro, Uncharted, Last of Us, Naughty Dog. The game has huge framerate issues, and is so... bad. Like people say that Sonic 06 is bad, this is worse. Sonic 06 at least has a great fucking soundtrack and amazing graphics in the cutscenes. This game has no soundtrack or graphics in general. Fuck this game, and fuck anyone who says that it's good, because it fucking is not.

1. Slaughtering Grounds (PC):
    Here's a game you may not of heard of- The Slaughtering Grounds is piss poor in that it doesn't have a story, isn't programmed at all, and is a slightly updated DOOM. Again, SLIGHTLY. But that's average for indie games, the main reason why this game gets the shit award is because of how the 'developer' reacted. I could very easily explain the entire case, but I'll let Jim Sterling, the man who was on the receiving end of this meltdown, explain the reaction: [link]

And now, for some Honorable Mentions of good:

-
Alien: Isolation:
    I love the Xenomorph. This game is scary as shit. This game is good. They managed to make a good Alien game after Colonial Marines. Good on you.

- Five Nights at Freddy's 1 and 2:
    I don't like scary games, nor do I find the appeal of the gameplay here. But holy shit, do I love how much story has been smashed into it. It's creepy, fitting, and bizarre, and oh my god do I love the fan interpretations of the characters.

- The Walking Dead Season 2:
    I don't like point and click style games, but the game has so much going for it, I can't help but respect that.

- Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor:
    Tolkien's Middle Earth never really caught my eye until the first Hobbit movie. But, when a game catches my interest, it catches my interest. All I can say is that it takes balls to not only add additional lore into a well established and beloved franchise, but to also add new characters as well as do a good job of it is almost unheard of.

- InFamous: Second Sun:
    Yes, :iconmythica-chris:, I did have this here on the list. I don't own a PS4 however, so I can't exactly play the game.

- Shovel Knight:
    For those of you who grew up with NES graphics and games, this is your baby. The game is intuitive, fun, and has more cheat codes than any action replay (Or Gameshark). 

Well, I was going to do Top Ten Movies, Top Ten Worst Movies, and some TV show stuff, but this journal is long enough. This weekend, maybe.

Your username made me think of something I learned in High School.

Did you know that the "velociraptors" in the "Jurrasic Park" series are actually based off Utahraptor or Deinonychus based on their size. Both of the latter are in the same family of velociraptor....and are pack hunters...

but the velociraptor is only the size of a chicken
