Review Dying Light

Published February 20, 2016 by makeuponatightbudget

Hey guys, i”ve been watching another Let’s Play. I’v been hearing a lot about Dying Light especially since the expansion came out last week. I decided to watch the first part of it and see what exactly it was all about. If anyone wonders why I don’t just do the Let’s Plays on my own it’s because I don’t have a PS4, my laptop doesn’t have enough memory and I don’t have money, haha. I don’t mind watching other people play either. I think it’s fun seeing what other people do and what you would do differently. Of course I watched theRadBrad do the Let’s Play. I mentioned before he’s isn’t as annoying with voice over stuff (the main reason that turns me away from let’s Plays). He doesn’t play as well as some others, which can bug some people, I know it bugs me sometimes, especially with this game when he’s close to an airdrop and doesn’t pick it up.

Anyway, Brad was given the game in December of 2014 I believe, the game didn’t come out until January of 2015 so the first 6 or so episodes follow the main storyline until you get to Rais, then he does a couple side missions which are a little weird (Mother’s Day) before he’s allowed to do the full campaign. Obviously with this post I will be talking about things within the game. I won’t really do a full explanation of stuff, just wanted to do some over all reviewing but there will be some spoilers.

So storywise I think it’s fairly interesting. there’s a lot of back and forth stuff with having to do missions for Rais, the people at the tower, Spike, Dr. Zere, etc. The missions themselves don’t seem as fulfilling as the cutscenes which of course let you go more in depth with the characters. The missions just seem like missions, basic “I need to get this or I need you to do this so we don’t die because of these zombies” stuff. So i find that a bit lackluster. My two favorite parts of the storyline was definitely the Demolisher boss battle and Crane cutting off Rais’s hand as then when you have to go and rescue Jade. Those two scenes in particular really had me on the edge of my seat and I was wondering exactly what would happen next. The weird floating school thing with Jade was okay mostly because you can see like the virus taking over your brain but you don’t really know if Crane is passed out and dreaming or really walking into random places and he’s not aware because he’s trying to find Jade. The end battle of course wasn’t as thrilling. I mean in a game full of zombies when 2 humans fight it won’t be as scary or thrilling. Techland tried to make up for this I think by adding in the quick time events to try and keep up the suspense. I think as a player it would be frustrating since you have to button smash but it seemed rather lack luster. Overall I think there were some good plot twists and decent character deaths, this is also the first form of zombie media I’ve seen that actually comes close to a cure. There’s always talk of cure but this ending in particular makes it seem like it’s real.

Gameplay is thankfully more interesting than watching an FPS. I tried watching F.E.A.R. and I basically gave up because watching it is so boring (the storyline is interesting however). It’s got a lot of melee weapons and fewer guns, which I think is cool because if you’re traveling by yourself there wouldn’t be a lot of guns lying around anyway. My favorite melee weapon was the Heavy Rebar (sucks on stamina but kills easily) and Tahir’s Weapon (easier on the stamina and does a lot of decapitations.) There’s also a variety of physical actions like sliding, dropkicks, and stomps that you can acquire with the skill points. The skill points weren’t so bad, they definitely helped in the game and imprved your character. As for the scenery and stuff, I like that it’s open world and every section has great textures. The realism is a little ehh at times but overall I think it’s pretty amazing. The colors are really nice, especially for a crumbling Turkish town. There’s a lot of neutral colors but subtle things that make it pop such as the graffiti, water, and tunnels. The parkour aspect is very huge in this game, hell one of the main characters, Brecken, was a parkour instructor before the outbreak. I think it’s interesting, not my favorite since only a few of the zombies can climb and go after you so most of the action is down below. It’s great for when you’re doing things at night because you DEFINITELY need to avoid them them since about 2 or 3 new zombies only come out at night. The stamina part is an amazing addition but i can tell if I actually played it I would hate the hell out of this feature. It adds to the realism immensely but it sucks big time when you’ve got 3 or 4 zombies around you and your stamina is at zero. Some other amazing additions that are probably really annoying for gameplay is when you come out of the water your screen is all wet and blurs your vision, the blood on your face from when you camoflauge yourself with zombie guts is weird because it’s like you have blood in your eye, and the seizure parts since Crane becomes infected. Sometimes the seizures happen at the worst time and I just yell at the screen like C’MON NOT NOW! The seizure parts add suspense because it takes awhile for Crane to recover and your vision gets all blurry.

So let’s talk zombies. This is the only game or form of media that I think i’ve seen that actually refers to zombies as zombies. Sure they have their former name of Volitiles but there has been several instances where Crane says zombies. It makes me think that maybe there was zombie media and entertainment before the outbreak, you know like in real life. I kind of like that aspect as well. The zombies in this game are really itneresting too. I always like seeing how  each franchise no matter in books, movies, or video games adds their own spin to zombies. Dying Light has their weakness against UV rays, Bombers which are similar to Bloaters in The Last of Us (mostly in the sense that they are large, very mutated, and can damage you with their explosion). The only thing is that as soon as you get close enough they start wanting to explode and in about 3-5 seconds they can cause major damage. The good news is that unlike Bloaters, as soon as they explode (and they do so on their own) they’re dead, so you don’t have to have a big battle with them. Toads are weird because they remind me of like…if stereotypical fedora lords that lived in their mother’s basements got infected. I think it’s their dumb little backpacks, lol. I haven’t gotten far enough to see if there is any explanation provided as to why toads ended up looking like, well, toads. Obviously they all mutate (which is another cool thing about these zombies) but I want to know why.

As for characters, Crane is the same for every video game. 30-ish, white man who has to save the day, blah blah. What I do like is that this takes place in Turkey, and there are Middle Eastern people everywhere. We even have Dr. Zere who may be from a different place (I’m thinking England? He sounds a little british?) but is a person of color. And I like how they got Middle Eastern people to voice Middle Eastern characters. Jade I think has a lot of potential that I haven’t seen yet. Her face I feel is the most realistic out of all of them but I want to know why she wears makeup if it’s the apocalypse. Like, come on, people. Lena I don’t think wears makeup (i haven’t seen that many close ups of her) and she’s still smart and useful (-ish, there’s not that much of her either). Rahim was, well annoying. He played the annoying little brother role well and when he died I was like good. You were fucking stupid, reckless, and thought you could do shit, when the adults told him that he shouldn’t have. I feel old writing that lol. But Rahim was no skin off my nose. Another thing is that I’m not connecting to these characters as much as I connect to the others in zombie games(ellie in TLOU, Michone in TWD, Clem in TWD game, etc). I think Jade seems to be the most interesting and I think that’s because she’s a kick boxer so I know she’s badass. I just haven’t seen it yet. I was pretty upset when she was bitten and on the verge of death. I think that was like the only time that i felt emotion towards a character in this game. I think Crane over all learned from his mistakes and was trying to do the right thing but I can’t help but to think that most of this stuff was his fault. Eventually towards the end of the game I started liking him more and more, especially with the little quips he had towards Rais. Overall i don’t think he was a bad character just not as dynamic.

So pros: day and night cycle, with night time adding increased difficulty and new zombies that only appear at night, different weapon options that aren’t just guns (but why are there elemental throwing stars?), you don’t have to fight all the zombies and they’re more like obstacles but when they pursue you it can be scary, the storyline is more hopeful especially with the cure and Antizin being introduced, gore factor in nice.

Cons: Missions are pretty straight forward, there’s more traveling than doing things, the faces are animated a bit weird and the lip movement/talking animation doesn’t looks as real as it could be. There are some glitches with the zombies bouncing back and forth, floating body parts and getting stuck in scenery. Missions are kind of boring, traveling takes up too much time, 2 boss battles, not enough battles with the zombies (you mostly avoid them)

The common rating for this game is a 7-8 out of 10 and I would have to agree. It’s not bad but it could be a little bit better. I think it’s got some great parts to it. I’m hoping that with the Dying Light:The Following addition it will be even better and some of these things will be fixed and that we may get to see different characters get involved with the zombies more. It’s on my next thing to watch. I don’t think I would buy it for $60 on Steam though. I would definitely wait for a price drop. The game may have 20 hours (or so) on it but i don’t think it’s worth $60.

Alright guys, hope you enjoyed the review, I’ll be back once I get done watching the expansion! See you soon!

 

 

My SD Boy Doll Journey

Published February 5, 2016 by makeuponatightbudget

I say journey because it’s definitely felt like one. It all started with following a few doll collectors and people in the BJD hobby on Instagram. One of them was selling a Little Rebel Seven head for around $190-ish. I don’t know why I wanted to buy this floating head but one thing lead to another and I put my first layaway on a doll (she was gracious enough to do a layaway with me). Now I know there are people who buy heads with the intent of getting bodies for them eventually. I don’t like eventuallys, If I was going to get a head I was also going to get a boy body. She recommended an Fdoll V2 body, which is available on MintOnCardInc.com. The skin tone I needed however was out of stock. So I got one that I thought would be the next best thing, which was pink (the head is Light Normal). I was impatient and didn’t want to wait for the Light Normal body to be in stock, so I went ahead with the Pink body and put it on layaway. I had two layaways and about $400 or so dollars to pay off. It was fairly easy as the payments weren’t synced up and there was enough time apart where I wouldn’t get slammed with 2 payments at once.

The head did come first, I never got a picture of the original faceup. It was good, better than what I could do, a little bit too heavy black shadow around the eyes and not too much details. I decided to look into doing my second faceup, my first full face up (the first attempt was building off the original faceup of my Mystic Kids Natalia, adding eyeshadows and lipstick basically). After purchasing some essentials for faceup removal on VOLKS USA website, i scrubbed him clean.

I had seen a lot of people with fem boy dolls. I had seen so much of it that I really began to hate the idea. It’s really not my cup of tea. I decided that my doll was going to be manly. I wanted to give him a bit of a hipster style too. So I added a beard.

A frontal view

Eventually I think I’ll redo the eyes but it do like most of the faceup. I think the harsh edges on the eye shading is whats bother me. And i’d like it to be a bit more realistic. Other than that I love the beard and his little beauty mark 🙂 So the head was done, time to pay off the body.

I got the body January 2016 a few days after my last payment. The head is more yellow than the body (naturally with the resin color not really due to yellowing). So the resin doesn’t match but there’s hardly a difference. You can see in the picture that for the most part the resins match it’s just a matter of the undertones, one is pink and the other is yellow. But i figured with wearing clothes, you wouldn’t really be able to tell.

So i had the body, I had the head, did the faceup, now it was time for clothes and mods. This doll was going to be my experiment doll. I wanted to put piercings and tattoos on him. As you can see , he already has a nose ring a lip piercing. I had some earrings on him but they kept falling off. I’ve also created gauges for him but I haven’t gotten around to putting them on him yet. I did get all his tattoos done. He has a sleeve, a chest piece, one on the back of his neck, back, thighs, and ankles.

The piercings were done by cutting a jump ring in half with some nail clippers, taking the shape in a bit by squeezing the ends closer together and to create a more rounded shape. Then I used tacky glue to stick it on. For the tattoos, I used printable tattoo paper that I got at JoAnn Fabrics. Each pack only comes with one sheet, but when you think about the size of your doll compared to a human, one sheet is all you need. I fit a lot of the tattoos I wanted on a single sheet. You simply find the image you want, print it, add a layer of sealant to the area when the tattoo is going to be on your doll, apply the tattoo with water as you normally would, then add a final layer of sealant. Apply the tattoos away from joints as the tattoos will gunk them up. You also want to make sure that water doesn’t fall into the joints and get on the string used to keep the body together. Apply the tattoo with circular motions as well as up and down strokes. Sometimes air bubbles can appear, so trying to smooth everything out before hand will help to prevent that. I had a few air bubble myself and had to reprint and reapply the tattoo again.

He has a horror movie themed sleeve

After a while and not really having money to buy him clothes (i’m really bad at making clothes myself) I went to Ohayocon. There were a few people I was able to buy some clothes from, so he’s finally clothed! Here is just one of his outfits.

DSCN0813.jpg

Later on I was able to get him some other stuff online.

The next battle was the wig. I got a wig on ebay for $12. It had a few layers of split pink and blue hair then the rest was an auburn-ish color. I first cut the pink and blue layer down to the length I wanted then the auburn I tried leaving longer. I’m no hairstylist. I usually hack my way through a wig even though I try to go layer by layer, none of it turns out even or looks right. Like I said, the hair wouldn’t hold for a bun in a hair tie so I cut it shorter. Eventually I kept cutting and cutting until I got the hair you see on the doll. It looks alright with the beanie on but if you take it off the wig just looks like a mess (because it is). I don’t know what really possessed me to buy this wig. I think it was probably because I was looking for something cheap that I could get easy. I had good intentions for it but in the end I ended up hating it. I have now ordered a black fur wig which i hope is easier to style and not really have bangs. I think the wig he has on now makes him look too feminine, especially with the color, bangs, and style. It also doesn’t match his facial hair so that’s a problem.

Overall he needs more clothes. He needs basic and non patterned pants and a few non patterned t shirts. All his pants are checkered patterns and all his tshirts are stripped, i don’t know how that happened. He does have a white shirt and plain grey cardigan though. I would just need to get some jeans or black (non harem style) pants.

As for poseablility, he can’t stand on his own and his body flops around all over the place. It’s so frustrating. And somehow his ass always pops out more than needed and it makes him look like he has scoliosis. It’s difficult to stand him up on his own and do things but sitting poses are ok. He can slouch as well. The arms don’t stay in more natural poses either. They snap back into a place that’s comfortable for them, which is frustrating for me. I really hate it. I don’t think I’d get and FDoll boy body again. I might try to get floating bodies from different companies and hope that it works better. My other doll can stand on her own more. I’ve thought about sueding the joints but I don’t know how to do that and I’m too afraid I’ll mess something up. I might do it eventually.

I don’t think that SD’s are my doll size of choice. I think they’re too big and clunky. I see a lot more clothes for MSD and MNF, and I really like my MSD doll more. I think I might sell the boy doll one day but as for now I do like him and he is really cute. I think once I get everything situated with him he will appeal to me a bit more. I think i’d feel guilty for selling him though. Right now he’s kind of just boy with normal boy fashion. And Luna is like kawaii, lolita, pastel fashion which I think can offer me more creativity. I still do want a badass boy character though. He’s like dark, mysterious, a giant nerd. It’s perfect. AS you can see I’m on the fence about it haha. I do love him though and can imagine myself cuddling this chunk of plastic and going to bed. Plus putting Luna beside him makes him look like a big brother and that’s cute too. I think I can punk up his style too.

Sighs….I’m a hot mess, just like him.

Ohayocon 2016

Published January 22, 2016 by makeuponatightbudget

Last weekend I went to Ohayocon in Columbus, Ohio. I’ve got to say that this con was fairly disappointing when it comes to panels. Out of 3 days I only went to around 5 panels, which is really bad for a 3 day con. For two out of the three days I dressed up; Friday was Lolita day and Saturday I dress up as Super Sonico. I made a post on my makeup blog on how I did the makeup for both looks. Friday was a decent day. After much struggling and going back and forth, my sister drove me to Columbus, two hours from where I live. My ex goes to school there so I stayed with her. Every year it always seems like a big mistake because she usually makes the con horrible for me but eventually things evened out. Neither I or my sister could afford an extra badge for her (i had pre-ordered mine) and so she had to wander around the con being bored for several hours while I did stuff. I felt really bad and annoyed that my ex wouldn’t let her stay in her place to rest while we were at the con. it just seemed really stupid. To make up for it I set out to get her a bunch of Sailor Mercury stuff from the dealer’s room and a few things from Bioshock (her fave video game franchise). I also paid for the parking ticket, our food, and gas (another reason why I didn’t have money for her badge).

Friday was a pretty chill day. I went to a panel about BJD’s (ball jointed dolls). It was my first BJD panel and I was super excited to meet other people who had the same hobby/interest as me. I haven’t been in the bjd hobby for long but I still love it. I made some new friends with Maria and her wife Gabi. I got to ogle her gorgeous Mini Me doll of Bill Kaulitz, too. The BJD panel’s were my favorite as well as the Steven Universe panel.

I was super nervous about dressing in Lolita too. Not only did I wear two sports bras, two pairs of spanx, and pantyhose, but I had a heavy wig on also. I was afraid someone was going to like say I didn’t make a good lolita or something. Not that I would’ve actually cared but i’ve heard that people in both the bjd and lolita community can sometimes be assholes. But i had a few compliments here and there and even got called a “pretty lolita” in passing. I was really happy. On Friday I also went to the Girls Generation Panel, which is my 2nd time going. I love that panel because it’s always fun to dance to GG, and i love Kpop. It’s a win win situation. But let me tell you, dancing in Lolita gear is no joke! I was sweating, my spanx kept falling down (layering spanx is apparently not a good idea as the materials slide against one another) and my feet were hurting in my 3 in heeled boots. I took them off during the dance but I had been wearing them all day so my feet were pooped.

Saturday I dress as Super Sonico. I hand sewed the vest from scratch (meaning I got yards of fabric and cut things out). It was the hardest thing i’ve ever done but also the best. it actually functioned, looked cute and I was very happy with my cosplay. I even got a few people to take my picture. The best thing was that I actually got 2 Sonico figures as well. That was my goal for the dealer’s room. Get a sonico figure. It was ahead everything else and I’m really happy with my purchases. I also got a lot of things from artist alley. Like I said, I didn’t go to many panels so I spent most of my time in the dealer’s room, artist alley, avoiding furries, and sitting down to rest my feet. I wanted to keep my sister company too, so I met up with her anytime I wasn’t busy.

Sunday I was in and out of the con really quick. it started to get colder and I had to be home to help my cousin’s girlfriend dye her hair. I had commissioned the awesome Consuelo over at Cogs and Creatures to make me and SD size beanie and t-shirt for my boy doll who had been naked ever since I got his body off layaway. She was super awesome! Anyway I ran in, spent a few more in artist alley then headed off towards North Market. North Market is my favorite place to it. It has the best pizza, pierogi’s and macarons! I just had to take my sister there to taste the awesome food. The guy working the parking lot ticket both was a prick though. He gave us attitude and a hard time because we didn’t get a stamp from inside, saying that we actually parked in the lot to go to North Market. I had forgotten you had to do this as I don’t freakin’ live in Columbus or go to North Market constantly. I would usually walk there anyway. Anyway he gave us attitude about it and was a complete dick. But after all that we were on our way home.

I wish this year had been better, panel and con wise. Last year I did a lot more stuff. I’m hoping to go to Colossalcon this summer so I have no idea if i’ll be able to go to ohayocon next year but we’ll see. I made a quick slideshow of some of the pictures and videos I took at the con. Hope you enjoy!

What the hell am I going to do with your ass in Egypt?? Also dont mention anything about “creeping” on a page. It’s well….creepy.

Got to love sexual harassment and inappropriate messages.

He later on apologized for his opening line and realized it was rude, so not that bad.

image

A two-parter! He said he was into ‘kinky sex’ while i casually asked him what some of his other interests were. I asked him to what degree and he gave me a very vanilla response to which i further tried to explain the actual other aspects of BDSM (something im an advocate of teaching about, including safety, asexuality in BDSM and other topics). He responded with ‘Yuck’ calling my lifestyle and interests as well as what i love teaching about disgusting. Yep. Good Job.

Like he Undertaker….

We’ll finish up with a solid inappropriate message. Oh joy.

Thoughts on FNAF 4 (Spoilers)

Published August 6, 2015 by makeuponatightbudget

Thoughts and Gameplay:

Ok, I’m upset. I’m late to the party. I had no idea that FNAF was released towards the end of july. I mean I was under the impression that it was going to be released on Halloween but I should’ve known better. Scott Cawthorn never releases things on the release date. Instead the entire game was released and a DLC will be available on Halloween (or in Cawthorn time, next week). I watched Markiplier play every FNAF sequel (I played the first one entirely on my own). And while I don’t like Markiplier, because I feel he yells too much and is super loud and makes unnecessary noises, he usually gets the FNAF before everyone else because he’s a top gaming Tuber. So I dealt with his annoying tendencies and watched all 8 parts of his playthough…after midnight…with the lights off and headphones in. Yeah, i’m pretty badass.

I do have to say that right before i found out that FNAF 4 had been released I had a nightmare about the game. I dreamt that i was in the FNAF 4 house and and had all those damn animatronics chasing me. I am afraid on animatronics, furries and mascots in general (yes it’s stupid for me to play FNAF but whatever) and this dream was based off of what I had seen in the FNAF 4 trailer when it was first released. So odd premonition or something.

Anyway I’ve got to say that this game was fairly interesting. It kept the basic mechanics of the original games but with a little bit of added movement. The child protagonist can run across the room and shut doors, where as in the original games you just pressed buttons on the flashlight or to close doors and check cameras. There are no cameras in this game, only audio cues. This makes it I think much more difficult as it is not always easy to hear the sounds. This game is one that you HAVE to play with the headphones on. It’s the only way you’ll be able to hear the cues. I had the headphones in and I could barely hear the cues, even when Mark was being quiet. It might be different if I had played the game myself but holy hell that is not on my agenda at all. I think this game would just accelerate my anxiety to the max. Even when I felt like”got used” to the jumpscares (after watching 5 6 episodes in a row) most of them still caught me off guard. There’s a lot more anticipation because you have to listen closely. When I played the first FNAF I would see Bonnie or Chica already close by and you had time to flash the light and then close the door. Here, you dont. If you flash the light at an inappropriate time and keep the door open, you die. Even if it’s just a fraction of a second. If you open the door before the animatronic has fully walked away, you die. If you don’t check the bed behind you fast enough you die. it’s really tough.

Setup and Animatronics: The set up of the game itself is similar to the originals but more so closely related to FNAF2 as there is two doors on the side (similar to the vents) and a closet (similar to the main hallway). The two doors lead out into the hallways where the animatronics come from. Flashing the light on them while they are far enough can push them back and make them retreat around the corner buying you some time. The closet is fairly simple as well. it has mini jumpscares with Nightmare Foxy, Nightmare Fredbear, and Nightmare. I’ve mostly seen it with Foxy as when you get to the closet door and shine you light on it the head will pop out. This does not kill you however, especially if you shut the doors fast enough. It’s simple and fairly easy to catch it from what I’ve seen. But it will still surprise you. The bed is behind you so every once in awhile you’ll have to look back and shine the flashlight on it. 1-3 small nightmare freddys will appear before the already stationary Freddy plush that sits a top the bed. Waving your flashlight over them will make them disperse. However if you dont then Nightmare Freddy will seemingly manifest from the bed and kill you. And yes there are three Freddy’s in this game. Nightmare Freddy, Nightmare Fredbear, and Nightmare. Nightmare Freddy seems to be the easiest to ward off since you just have to check the bed periodically and keep the smaller Freddies at bay. Mark himself never got the death scene from Nightmare Freddy. Nightmare Freddy also has two different jumpscares, one where he comes from the bed itself and another where he appears in front of the protag like the other animatronics.

Nightmare Bonnie: Oh the devil rabbit is back. He’s actually the most tame looking of the 6 main animatronics. His teeth are sharpened and most of his internal skeleton is exposed. Every animatronics however has the sharp claws and teeth, their internal skeletons are all at various stages of decay. Bonnie appears in the Left Hall only and can jumpscare the player from the door or in the middle of the room. His cues are breathing and footsteps. If breathing is heard you must keep the door shut for around 3-5 seconds or until the footsteps are heard signaling that Bonnie has walked away. If you open the door too quickly then the jumpscare will happen. Bonnie can delayed by flashing the light if he’s at the end of the hall. He becomes inactive on Night 5 and does not appear.

Nightmare Chica:

Stupid chicken. Honestly I think the bulk of the scares-like what really gets the nightmare fuel going relies heavily on Nightmare, Foxy, and Fredbear. Though Chica and Bonnies jumpscares happen more often if you mess up in the slightest than it could be game over. The teeth is what really get me about Chica. They’re almost on the same level as Fredbear and Nightmare. As usual she acts the same way as Bonnie but on the other side. Chica is the only animatronic to have a completely different jumpscare in that her cupcake actually does the second jumpscare. This is the first time that the cupcake has been an attacker, this is probably because we are playing from the child’s perspective and he finds everything about the animatronics scary, including her cupcake.

Cupcake Jumpscare

Nightmare Foxy:

Nightmare Foxy can be fairly easy to avoid as long as you get to the closet in time. he becomes active in Night 2 and can be seen on either right or left hall but most of his attacks comes from when he sneaks into the closet. I have only ever seen his jumpscare from the closet but I’m assuming that he can attack from the hallways as well. If you neglect to check the closet enough then he will jumpscare you. When you initially go to the closet his face will pop out resulting in a mini jumpscare. This doesn’t end the game however. You must keep the closet doors shut until his body retreats, usually if you see he hook or he has returned to his plushie state then you are good to go. His hiding is similar to that of when he hid in Pirate Cove. Apparantly you can summon Foxy as stated in the Wiki.

  1. “Nightmare Foxy is the only animatronic in the series that can specifically be summoned by the player. This is done by clicking the nose of the Freddy Plushie on the bed some number of times greater than 20.”

Though I have no idea why you would even want to summon him. You can also easily hear him getting into the room as there are footsteps and the creaking of the closet door as he goes in. At this point you would have to check the closet and close the doors.

Nightmare Fredbear/Nightmare:

As you can see Fredbear and Nightmare are very similar in design. It can almost be treated as a palette swap. Fredbear appears in Night 5 and 6 after 4 am, replacing the other animatronics. When he laughs (there are about several different laughs that he also shares with Nightmare) then that means he will appear on the bed or in the closet and will attack from there if the flashlight isn’t shown or the closet doors aren’t closed, respectively. He can also attack from the right or left hall and the player will have to listen closely to figure out which direction he’s coming from. Nightmare appears in Night 6 and 20/20/20/20 mode from 4 am on, replacing the other animatronics, including Fredbear during 4-20 mode. The difference is that instead of being down the hall like the other animatronics he will appear right outside the door in the players face which will most definitely scare the shit out of you at least once.

Appearing in the left Hall

A face only a mother could love

Nightmare also doesn’t have a jumpscare where he lunges at the player like the other animatronics. A picture just sort of appears followed by a static like “scream”.

Conclusion:

This has got to be I think one of my favorite installments from the franchise. Seeing as how we went from very 2D like Bonnies and Chicas in the doors of FNAF1 to literal 3D jumpscares and better designs and animations i think it’s safe to say that FNAF has come a long way in just a short year. I think that this one is more terrifying since it’s seen from the perspective of an abused child. The timeline of the games seem to go 4,2,1,3, with this final installment being the first one. there is a lot of speculation that the minigames where you move the crying child around his home and what could be Fredbear’s Family Dinner (though it looks more similar to Freddy Fazbear’s pizzaeria) tells the story of the ‘Bite of 87’ Though in the minigames, or rather pseudo cutscenes there is a TV. Clicking enter repeatedly will my an advertisement appear showing Freddy and Friends 1983. A lot of people thought that this meant that this took place in 83 but it could also just be an old advertisement as well from 4 years earlier. it would make much more since that this was during ’87 since we see the actual bite taking place. this video explains that perhaps the bite actually took place in the Establishment know as Fredbear’s Family Dinner and then it was rebranded to try and cover up the bit incident by renaming it Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria. We also have reasons to believe that the child is either dreaming or in a coma because of the damage done to him by  the bite. Periodically you can see an IV bag, a bottle of pills, and flowers near the bed symbolizing recovering from the injuring. The Game Theorists believe that this couldn’t possibly happen because the damage to the front lobe would be so severe. Honestly I think he’s going to much into the science side and not appreciating the fact that this is a GAME. Horror games are meant for all kinds of speculation, things don’t also have to be concrete. In short, bruh, it ain’t that serious. And to be quite honest I’m fine leaving it up to speculation. let’s enjoy the ride, the four games we have and leave it all up to mystery. isn’t that what makes it so fun in the first place?

True Blood S1E2

Published July 18, 2015 by makeuponatightbudget

Picking up right where we left off where Sookie was getting beat up. It looked like the Rattrays and right now those are her only enemies so I’m assuming that’s who’s attacking her. Now Bill has to save her or something. I’m surprised Sam didn’t turn into a dog and like jump on them or something. I think at this point he only knows how to shift into a dog. I think he needs to learn to shift into other animals later but I’m not 100% sure. Oh well now he shows up when Sookie’s almost passed out. Good job Sam.I think Bill came too but he was moving too fast to see for sure. But i mean it was obvs him, who else would it be? Oh shit did Jason actually kill Maudette??? But it was an accident…i mean it still counts as murder but he didn’t mean too.

Oh he didn’t kill her. Why did they take him in then if the police saw the video tape beforehand??? Liek what was the point of that. Yes, Jason was there and everything but if you saw that she wasn’t dead when they were done why did they take him? That’s so stupid. Why did Bill take Sookie to the middle of like no where to save her? He just took her to like a river and forced her to drink his blood. I mean he was trying to heal her or whatever but that’s just weird. She is just heavily making out with his wrist man. OH GREAT NOW HE’S LICKING HER. WTF?!! And she’s calm as fuck waking up, like thanks for licking me while i was asleep Bill. It’s all good. Ok ok, so he was licking blood off her head, but he didn’t clean it all and like a minute later theres no left over blood when she sits up. Continuity error. Bill’s sideburns are killing me.

I CANNOT believe that guy just walked up to Tara with that fake ass pimp lean walk. Omg what is this 1995?? i love her crazy stories she tells people.

Awkward sex scene. They just spring it on you, i can’t prepare for any of it. It just freaks me out so much. It was literally random. Like Jason having sex had nothing to do with the storyline right now. Why did you feel the need to include it. Tara acts like such a nerd when jason’s around. So no the rattray’s were “crushed under their trailer” because of a tornado. Yes, I’m sure. I wonder if Bill moved the bodies before or after he took care of Sookie. Now Sookies has enhanced senses because she drank Bill’s blood or something. Now i feel bad for grandma I feel like something is going to happen to her and she doesn’t deserve any of it. She’s just a nice old lady. But I guess now the whole family is gonna meet Bill, as if that isn’t awkward enough. Grandma laid the smack down on Jason. That boy better behave if she wants to stay on grandmas good side. that’s creepy. Now that Sookie drank Bill blood he can always find her. What kind of messed up shit is that. Why are vampires so abusive?? Like this is just way too weird.

Tara is trying sooooo hard to get with Jason. She’s so thirsty for him. I think Jason just thinks of Tara as like another sister. I mean he can’t really tell how she feels. he’s too damn stupid.

Bill’s glamour look is just like an awkward creepy version of blue steele. Oh god and then he whispers. Sookie isn’t even a good name is say like in bed. It just sounds dumb. I don’t like how they keep walking and stopping to have conversations. Like did you guys know you could walk and talk at the same time. You don’t have to be so dramatic even if it is for the sake of tv. HE SNIFFED HER HAIR WHAT.this isn’t sexy or romantic! he’s just plain weird! I can smell the sunlight on your skin? Wtf does that mean? Please tell me what the sun smells like? It’s already episode 2, they’ve known each other for like 3 days. He’s already killed someone for her. And then they kiss. because that all seems logical.

God I love Renee he’s so attractive. I know he ends up being bad or something but that doesn’t matter. Ugh, he’s so good. I need more of him.

Well this episode is ending and not that much has happened so far. The anti-vampire guys that was on the news show Sookie was watching in the morning died. Now I don’t know if it was Bill, the vampire lady who was also on the show or Renee. I never got past episode 1 of season 1 so I don’t really know who’s the villain this season. Now Sookie is at some random person’s house? Oh wait, it was Bill’s House and some other vampire couple opened the door or something. Oh god one of them was that bald headed one with the weird eyes and tattoos! What is going on.
