On your couch, everyone can hear you scream

Na 12 uur en 23 minuten heb ik vandaag Dead Space, de sci-fi horror game van EA, uitgespeeld.

T22

Dead Space is een hele goede game. Srsly. Het verhaal is eigenlijk het awesomeste eraan (ik raadt dan ook iedereen aan eerst de comic te lezen, voor aan de game te beginnen) en ookal begint het erg langzaam, tegen het eind raakt het in een stroomversnelling en komt het hele ingewikkelde plot bloot te liggen, waardoor je de hele game in ‘n ander licht gaat zien.

Naast dit verhaal zijn ook de dialogen erg goed geschreven, en in combinatie met de graphics wordt je echt het verhaal ingezogen. Helaas voor mij (ik kan niet zo goed tegen enge games ;_;) want ik tripte na het spelen ervan telkens nog ‘n half uur ofzo na, waardoor ik eerst goed rondkeek elke keer dat ik een hoek omging -.-‘ En dat is overigens iets wat je in Dead Space wel moet doen als je wil overleven. Want rond elke hoek staan vieze, ranzige en vooral dodelijke monsters om je een kopje kleiner te maken.
Dead Space zit vol met standaard schrikmomenten, iets minder standaard schrikmomenten en een angst-inspirerende atmosfeer. Deze atmosfeer, die al heel goed neergezet wordt door de graphics engine, wordt nogeens versterkt door het geweldige gebruik van licht en schaduwen. Regelmatig zie je ergens iets bewegen en zit je weer op ‘t puntje van je stoel, terwijl het eigenlijk gewoon je eigen schaduw/de schaduw van een ventilatiefan was.
De gameplay is redelijk standaard, en bestaat uiteindelijk uit "IK HEB EEN IDEE OM VAN DIT SCHIP AF TE KOMEN" "OH SHIT HET IS KAPOT" "GA HIER EN HIER HEEN OM HET TE FIXEN" "OH HET IS GEFIXT MAAR HET WAS TOCH NIET HAX GENOEG SORZ" "IK HEB EEN IDEE OM VAN DIT SCHIP AF TE KOMEN!". Je bent dus constant op en neer aan ‘t lopen naar dingen die niet werken om ze te fixen, waarop je weer iets anders mag fixen. Maar de omgevingen zijn afwisselend genoeg, en de shootan goed genoeg, om je hier niet erg aan te storen. Isaac is awesome in z’n insane armor en het afschieten van ledematen blijft leuk.

Verdict: 8.5/10 Bring on the sequel

This weekend the 156th Seoul Comic World was hosted in SETEC in Gangnam. Comic World is a little like the Japanese Comiket: a large event where individual artists or art circles are given the chance to show off and hopefully sell their work to a huge community of anime and manga fans. Unlike Comiket though, Comic World is hosted at least once a month, either in Seoul or in Busan. And tickets are only ₩5000! One of the greatest things about this event is how all the goods are so cheap. Cards usually go for ₩800 or ₩1,000; posters for ₩3,000; key chains for ₩5,000 and you can even get little plastic cutouts of characters you can put on your desk for about ₩15,000. The other greatest thing are the cosplayers: people who worked for weeks or months on a costume to show off their love for a certain character. Unfortunately, the bad weather yesterday meant there weren't many opportunities for taking pictures, but when the weather's good you'd be in for a treat! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Seoul #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul_Korea #ComicWorld #SeoulComicWorld #Anime #Manga #Comics #Deadpool #Spiderman #Ash #EvilDead #Cosplay #Marvel #Avengers #Pokemon #서울코믹월드 #코믹월드 #아니메 #만화 #코믹 #데드풀 #스파이더맨 #애시 #이블데드 #코스플레이 #마블 #어벤져스 #포케몬
A warm spring day like today is the perfect time to take a stroll around the Great Korean Beer Festival. And to ignore your thesis work and just hang out with friends without worrying just for a little while. Seoul has a number of beer festivals all around the year, and although none of them come even close to the magnificent glory of the Daegu Chimaek Festival, they're definitely a good way to get away from the (let's be honest, not very good) usual Korean beers. The Great Korean Beer Festival is taking place around COEX (Samseong station exit 5 or 6) right now until the 6th of May, so have a look when the weather's right! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #COEX #Samseong #Gangnam #Beer #Craftbeer #Koreancraftbeer #Festival #BeerFestival #CraftBeerFestival #Koreanbeer #KoreanFestival #GKBF #맥주 #크래프트비어 #크래프트맥주 #맥주축제 #축제 #코엑스 #5월 #삼성역 #대구치맥페스티벌
Absolute chills when the President of South Korea, Moon Jae-In, and the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jung-Un, joined hands and stepped over the military demarcation line together. What a beautiful and meaningful gesture. Although I, like many Koreans, feel like this might be just another little trick from the North to get their sanctions loosened for a while, there is a part of me that hopes it will mean more than that this time. There's even talk of signing an actual peace treaty to finally end the war that has officially been going on between the two Koreas since 1950! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #DMZ #NorthKorea #MoonJaeIn #KimJongUn #KimJungUn #NorthKorea #DPRK #Summit #unification #대한민국 #북한 #문재인 #김정은 #남북정상회담 #남북
Finally, just for an instant, my life looked just like one of those Apple commercials. It's 시험기간 (test week) in Korea, so cafés are filled to the brim with students sighing profound sighs of despair as they stare blankly at a pile of books and printouts, hoping the knowledge contained within them will somehow seep into their brains if only they sigh loudly enough. It's extra fun to visit cafés around this time of the year, not just because it's infinitely fascinating to observe Korean study rituals, but also because you'll automatically feel great about the fact that you do NOT have any tests to study for and can instead sit back and go through the birthday cards your family sent you for a birthday you almost forgot is now dawning very, very near. Good luck, guys, good luck. 화이팅, 한국 학생들! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Cafe #Café #Seoulcafe #HUFS #Hankukuniversityofforeignstudies #Midterms #Testweek #Study #Studying #Studygram #Birthday #Birthdaycard #Sony #Tentamenweek #ZuidKorea #Verjaardag #시험기간 #공부 #공부스타그램 #카페 #외대 #외대앞 #외대카페 #생일 #생일카드 #화이팅
If you ever find yourself in Gangnam around dinner time, and, like me, worry about being too poor (or budget conscious!) to pay 'Gangnam prices' for dinner, give this little Japanese restaurant called 'MomoSara' a chance. They serve delicious handmade Japanese style 'Hambageu' for ₩9,500, which is about as cheap as you can hope for around Gangnam. They're located about a 5 minute walk from exit 2. Also, they (unfortunately) didn't pay me to write this ㅋㅋ But sometimes it's nice to write a more 'Korean Instagram'-style post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Gangnam #Food #Foodstagram #Japanesefood #Hambagu #MomoSara #Gangnam #Gangnamfood #Japanese #서울 #강남 #강남맛집 #모모사라 #일본음식 #일본집 #맛집 #일본맛집 #함바그 #먹스타그램
In spring, locals and tourists alike can often be seen hunting for that perfect selca with a tree adorned with cherry blossoms in the background to let everyone on their instagram or facebook feed know that spring has started. Being from a country that I guess simply doesn't have any cherry trees, suddenly seeing the roads and campuses of Korea covered in a blanket of pink always brings a smile to my face. It's a shame there's only a limited time to enjoy them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #cherryblossom #sakura #blossom #spring #flowers #bloom #petals #lente #ZuidKorea #벗꽃 #봄 #서울 #피우다 #꽃 #사쿠라
