Great Big Dogs


Queen Latifah struggles through X-8, running out of ammo and falling back her wits and a bowie knife! The struggle goes from one against reasonably-sized cyborg dogs to battle with a giant cyborg dog. Afterward is left the question, “What next?” The seas are bumpy and the sails are torn.

Of course we also had a Monday Music yesterday, featuring a theme for a powerful, mighty sand crab. A heroic crab with heroic crab duties.

And we had a Personal Time about some odds and ends and joking about useless villains!

Fashion Ponies


We have another Mentally Advanced Series episode! Rarity enlists the help of Fluttershy to get ahead in the ruthless fashion world, and it turns that Fluttershy is exactly the kind of personality that the fashion world is looking for. A doormat, basically.

We’ve also got another episode of Soul Reaver 2 online! Raziel continues to traverse Janos’s Keep! Almost to Janos!

X-8


Queen Latifah cautiously makes her way to the X-8 research facility in order to upgrade the sonic blaster so it can pass force fields. Try as she might, ammo still remains in short supply and is used up pretty rapidly. Big Mountain is a dangerous place, and Queen Latifah has never been much of a contender when it comes to head-on conflict. This is especially true when trapped in a building full of vicious, cyborg dogs.

Out of the Pan


We’ve got a new Monday Music! Today’s song is a theme for a female character who consorts with eldritch horrors. This song was requested to represent a break from the leash of those beings into a relatively brighter tomorrow.

The original build for this song included a flute part that was apparently lifted from a group called “Barcode Brothers”. I have to offer a huge thanks to the people who pointed that out – it wasn’t something I’d done intentionally. The site that I got the sample from has its own rules for licensing and so forth, and the person who uploaded that sample didn’t represent it as anything unoriginal. The entire concept of plagiarism where music is concerned can be complicated, but using a copywritten sample without permission can lead to trouble, so if any of you guys catch anything like that again, let me know!

The rest of the song, however, is just fine, and I scratch-built the new piano part you hear now instead! So this should be fine to use for your project without worries.

The Great Base Robbery


Jordan sets up a plan and Regal Lance descends on an Oligopolmart base with intent to steal everything not nailed down! The team doesn’t have a really clear idea of what’s present, but it’s high risk, high reward.

I also did a Personal Time where I talked about working at a pharmacy under a megacorp. It’s actually the case that some of my experience in retail guides some of the writing for the Mechwarrior Let’s Plays.

We’ve also got a new Allen Hour, wherein Allen gets a law degree! This short skit was inspired by some musings he and I were making about the idea behind law sometimes, where we like to assume that people are going to be rational. Sometimes laws are passed in an effort to modify behavior, but humans just don’t always cooperate with theories, exactly.
