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

One of the many things I love about Korea is that it has way more 'themed stores' than my own country. For some reason, some companies or brands such as Ghibli, Gundam, Kakao or, as in these pictures, Line, decide to spend millions creating beautiful flagship locations that feel like a mix of an exhibition space and a regular store.

This was the first time I visited the Line store in Itaewon since I'm not very interested in either Line nor Itaewon, but it was definitely a really cute sight to behold.

Now, ondol heating is a staple of any building, no matter how high or low the rent. As a Dutchman, floor heating has always been something associated with 'fancy people', so it's petty nice to be able to enjoy warm feet in cold winters like this one myself.

#온돌 #대한민국 #남한산성 #요새 #전통 #역사 #한국 #눈 Buddhism has an ever increasing following in Korea, in spite of the extreme popularity of Christianity. As an outsider, it's strange to me how traditional Confucian values and Buddhist teachings can live hand in hand with a modernizing society and the vastly different beliefs of a Western religion, but somehow, people here make it work.

The atmosphere of a Korean temple couldn't be more different from that of a European church or cathedral. Whereas a church makes one feel close to God, a temple makes one feel close to nature.
Perhaps that's why I love them so much.

It was probably my imagination, but the air did smell cleaner over there on the snow covered mountain where we found this small temple.

Not because his play wasn't amazing (his hold against Trap's shield battery rush was simply phenomenal), but because it's like having me as a fan is like death's kiss; the players I love never seem to win anything when I'm there to cheer them on!

RIP Byun, please come back stronger and harder next season.
Congratulations Dark, for beating my curse! 계속계속 응원하겠습니다!
