Title: Someone please tell me how to feel?
Post by: barren1 on December 16, 2011, 05:45:27 PM
I thought that this would be a horror game at first and ignored it, not caring for horror. A comment by Reives here on the forum convinced me otherwise, and I downloaded and beat it in about 15 minutes. And now, I can't decide whether to be impressed or insulted by the ending and its, its...

 :pewpewpew:

Anyone else have any idea?

Somehow that's what I expected...

Ah well, it was a good laugh in the end at the idea of a girl flying around on a bird with a shotgun, even if I did predict the ending a bit (thanks to the icon here being the faceless girl and bird characters).

It's supposed to be placed up for interpretation. A lot of theories are about nuclear/biological warfare. Some suspect the Birdie to be a metaphor for a plane that drops bombs all over the country, which is why the map disappears.

Erm... Guys would you please be so kind and stop randomly swaping weapons at random? It was a small pistol not a shotgun. For a girl of that build shotgun would rip her shoulder off!

I've never cared to differentiate between guns much myself. Handgun and shotgun are used interchangeably by me, and I don't care about the difference between a T-18 and a T-47, if either of those even exist. So if I say one thing and it's actually another, it's not that I'm mixing them up, it's just that I don't care all that much.

It may be allright in a game like this where is only a one gun but there are many games out there which have lots of weapons so at least a basic recognition would be nice. :)

I agree that not everybody is like: Broad sword, short sword, long sword, dagger, two-hand sword, mace, morning star, staff, spear, Bardiche, Pollaxe, pistol, SMG, assault rifle, LMG, Heavy machine gun, rotten tomatoes.
But if in the games is written "small pistol" it's not hard to remember :D

The difference is, I play practically every genre out there (excluding simulation games) except those that require you to differentiate between real gun types. That is, I can tell you the difference between the Gravity and Portal Guns, just not a shotgun versus a pistol, and such.

I can do swords though, sometimes.

So no difference between C-14 and Railgun?

Nope, none.

At least, none until I was in a forum RPG with a user who got terribly upset that I was deflecting his railgun shots so my character doesn't get a cheap death...

How am I supposed to know a railgun shoots faster than you blink?

Still no clue what a C-14 is.

C-14 is main assault rifle used by Terran Marines in StarCratf

A friend tried to introduce me to it. However, he also introduced me to Age of Empires that day, and it's a lot more fun (no infantry rush...), so I've stuck with that.

I don't know, man. And why would it be such a bad thing for Birdie to fly over Europe or something? I'm still scared man. Even though I laughed pretty hard when I restarted the game after finishing it.

It's funny, when I first saw this game I thought it was a horror game. The thought of it being a horror game sparked my interest, but when I saw that it said, "This is NOT a horror game, and nothing will jump out at you." I was hesitent to play it. That changed eventruly though and I did play it. I really ended up enjoying it.

It's funny how a lot of this topic is made up of debate about arson.  XD

Oh and I just have to post this emoticon.  :pewpewpew:
