Because I just fucking KNOW we’re going to get emails about it, the Soulthrister’s “gender” (if such a thing can be attributed to a multidimensional celestial being created from the darkest lusts of mortal desires) is ambiguous. If you don’t know what that means, look it up like I had to make sure I was using it in the right context. MULTISYLLABIC WORDS CONFUSE ME!

Also an apology to anyone who has sent normal fan art to our new f an art email address (enfanart[at]gmail[dot]com), I tried looking for it in their but it seems that it’s gone missing somehow. Either that or I’m not looking properly, which is probably the case. I remember at least two pieces, maybe three, being sent. The only one I can really remember was one featuring Lothar, Eastwood and a fan character drinking either coffee or booze (probably the latter). Not the most original premise but the art was bloody good and I’d really like it if the artist (her name escapes me at this moment) to send it in again so I can show off her work, as well as any others who sent fan art in. So remember, our new address for fan art is enfanart[at]gmail[dot]com.

Recently picked up a couple of older games, those being Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay for the Xbox, and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner for the PS2. I’ve owned both before but saw them for cheap and decided to get them, only to my horror to discover the Chronicles of Riddick isn’t compatible with the Xbox 360 yet, which is a right kick in the cunt.

Z.O.E 2 however still plays as fun and as frantic as ever. For those of you who don’t know of the game it’s a stupidly fast mech combat game. A Japanese one at that, which means the plot’s a load of shit and the script is complete bollocks, but by fuck is it good to play as your multi-tonne mech slices an enemy in half before blasting another with a stupidly large gun. However there is one thing…odd about the human-piloted mech designs.

Each one has a cockpit on their crotch, and it sticks out in front of them, basically taking the term “cockpit” literally. Now call me crazy, but why would a designer want to recreate one of man’s most obvious weaknesses? That being the good old nut-sack, If I was an enemy pilot the first thing I would ame at would be the mech’s schlong as my brain has taught me that the penis is a very good thing to punch, kick, or squeeze in a fight. What’s worse is that the “female” looking mechs have them as well, which brings up very odd images in my head of robot procreation That said it IS a Japanese game so the designers probably a closet pervert with a dickgirl fetish, just like 50% of the heterosexual males in Japan, the other 50% being interested only in raping animated schoolgirls.
