No posts from me this past weekend as I carved out most of the time to unwind and enjoy Marvel Heroes 2015 (whose one-year anniversary celebration ends tonight at midnight PST) with my wife. But I haven’t forgotten about you folks! In fact, I have something that, for some of you at least, will be…

Wait wait I’m supposed to be gushing over games right now but honestly I found a book on Japanese architecture and I have a gyro and MasterChef is on and-

I have the largest crush on Geralt now.

POSSIBLY because he’s an older man with a beard in a skin-tight leather outfit.

I wonder WHO ELSE matches that criteria? *snuggles her Big Boss action figure*

We need to talk about the character designs in Wildstar.

We need to talk about the character designs in all science fiction and fantasy franchises that feature non-humans.

Wildstar is a science-fiction MMO currently in beta, developed by Carbine Studios. The general thrust of Wildstar is something along the lines of Firefly, Star Wars, and Ratchet & Clank; not exactly a grimdark sci-fi thriller. The mechanical features look interesting and the art style, in and of itself, is really vivid—but what they’re doing within the style?

Well.

The NDA dropped on a bunch of Wildstar content and character creation videos are up. You can watch them all, but here I’m just going to focus on the Granok, Draken, and Mechari.

I started WildStar yesterday.

I knew next to nothing about this MMO. I remember being at PAX Prime a few years ago when it debuted, and checking them out when someone said you could be a “bunny woman.” This was swiftly revealed to be “human woman with rabbit ears,” and thus I lost interest in the game immediately.

But I have a review copy, and so, with the game officially launching today, I installed the client and set about seeing what characters I had to choose from.

And right from the start I was presented with a race of rock women. With breasts.

"Why?" I said to myself. Why do character designers feel the need to have ridiculous levels of sexual dimorphism, particularly in the races that are not mammalian? Why do the male demons look like ratty, neon demons from some trash pit in Las Vegas, and the female demons look like .. well, human women? The type that Captain Kirk would seduce and sleep with because Kirk’s that kind of guy? 

I have no answers for these questions, because I’m not an arty or biology person, and thus why I linked the post above. But I know what annoys me, and the female racial designs in WildStar annoy me.

So this is my character:

He is pink. And surly. And he is already tired of everybody’s crap.

We are off to an auspicious start.

Today, Marvel vs. Capcom is a respected franchise several games strong, and widely accepted as the best superhero fighting game series. But Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, for example, did not spring into existence from nothingness. Capcom’s first dabbling in fighting games with Marvel characters occurred 20 years ago in 1994, with X-Men: Children of the Atom. It was a natural enough progression. Capcom had already tackled peak human martial arts in Street Fighter games, followed by the supernatural in Darkstalkers. Logically, the next step was the superheroic. As with my Konami X-Men review, this gets pretty long, so the rest is under a cut.

Cleaning my office and just noticed that the skulls on the New World of Darkness source books match the game’s creature/monster/player character.

Bread knife

The french have grown more powerful. 


Hold it!

Look more closely at these photographs, Your Honor.


Notice anything strange about the bread?

I didn’t either. That’s because…

…no cuts were made there in the first place!

The witness forged the photographs to make it look like they had an actual bread knife, when they actually did not!

How, you ask? Look to the second photo.


While it is quite obvious that the knife is penetrating the top half of the breadstick, I’m not sure about the bottom half.

Looks pretty flat, doesn’t it?

The angle of the photo makes it look like the knife is in the witness’s breadstick, whilst it is actually behind it. In addition, the cut was actually made after the first photograph and before the second. Continue to the third photograph.


It is also taken from a flat angle, as was the second photograph. I’m sure you’re finding something missing in this photograph as well, Your Honor. Where is the index finger’s fingertip?

This illustration explains it all.


While I am… ahem, not the best artist…
(Didn’t I go to art school?)

The index finger is hidden behind the loaf of bread. It is not wrapping around the loaf of bread. This is because…

The witness was making space to put the knife’s handle!

Objection

Are you really that dull, Wright? For a man who majored in art you should be able to recognize a sculpture when you see one.

as we can see from the photos provided, this is quite obviously plastic.

if you look at any photo of real bread it can’t attain that level of shininess, and even if it could.

If you’ll notice in this picture, the bread on the inside is quite shiny, as well.

Tell me, Wright, have you ever seen real bread gleam that much? Don’t answer that, I will.

Even in this high-resolution photograph with bread that thick, it obviously wouldn’t shine on the inside when it isn’t buttered.

And it isn’t too hard to find the item in question with a quick google search.

Oh, and if you will notice, their hand was covering the seam where the bread was taken apart in the first photo with a simple comparison of the pattern on the bread.

It appears your lawyering skills are in much need of some sharpening if you expect to cut me down with that weak objection.



Edgeworth, you’re asking yourself the wrong question. It’s not “is there bread like that…”

You should be asking “can there be bread like that?”

Sweet bread can be infused with sugar or a syrup, making the outsides shinier- and the insides sweeter. Take a look.


Furthermore. there are parts of the witness’s bread knife that don’t just match up with the novelty bread knives you have presented. Take another look.



Let me point out two things about the novelty knives: one, their markings, and two, the placement of the knife itself.

In the novelty knives, the marks are artificial-looking and repeated. That is because they are manufactured. In the witness’s photo, the marks are more natural and realistic- because they are, well, real!

Furthermore, the blades on the novelty knives are in the middle of the handle.
But… look back at the witness’s photo. The knife is to the left? Where is the problem, you ask? Look at this illustration.


Here we have the knife, a piece of bread, and a table. Let’s have a go.


I’m sure you see it now, Your Honor.

The bread knife cannot actually be used to cut bread efficiently! Even if it was tilted, it would be uncomfortable and unbalanced!

The defense has an explanation for this positioning.

The blade is to the left because the witness was holding it behind the piece of bread!
