Yeah. I don't know why I even made that comparison. 'Bullet Witch' came out three years before. I mean, that's too long for even the 'two hollywood movies with the exact same subject matter coming out at the same time' thing to be at play. Like, you know how there were zero mall cop movies for billions of years, right, whole epochs dawned and died with no mall cop movies, and then 'Paul Blart' and 'Observe and Report' both came along in the same year ('Observe and Report' is the obvious winner, incidentally. That thing is pretty much 'Taxi Driver', with jokes. 'Paul Blart' can go eat worms).

Anyway. Maybe 'Bullet Witch' is secretly super rad. I'll be sure to say so in code, so as not to ruin the surprise.

I saw some gameplay of it a few weeks ago. It definitely isn't a *good* game, but it's definitely stupid enough that it could still be fun as a B-game. Assuming the gameplay doesn't get much worse than what I saw, anyway.

All done with MC. I remembered more of it than I thought I would, so it was pretty quick to get through.

Still need to go through WW and aLttP again before I could say that with any confidence, but it's at least top 3.

thaaat is verrrry eerie that you used that word blackguard because I am currently writing a story titled Blackguard. I was looking for some archaic word similar to scoundrel and found blackguard and NEVER heard anyone use it until you just now.

It's also a series of not great tactics games.

^^It's a pretty good word. It's a good hit, and an interesting spelling/pronunciation. Don't you just instinctively hear Robin Hood shouting it at the Sheriff? 'Stay thy hand, thou knave! Cur! Villain! Blackguard that thou art!' It's kind of perfect. Beautiful, in its strange saxon-ness.

I find blackguard to be a fascinating word. People put two words together and made them sound totally different due to the speed at which we speak it, because it would be too cumbersome to slow down and pronounce BLACK. GUARD. in actual conversation.

So we can just make new words by combining them? Carrotjet.

This phenomenon may or may not be the main reason I minored in German

^Isn't German great? The Germans didn't go in for loan-words. There's a people who said '...nah. We'd rather build byzantine compound words than adopt anything Latin or Greek into our scary monster language.' Man. I mean, I love English (it has so many words!), but I can't help but admire German primality and efficiency. Don't have the word you need? Stick a few old words together like Legos. No one'll mind-----------heck, the nouns are capitalised anyway, it'll get sorted.

'Tempotaschentuch' is their word for 'tissue'. They decided, as a culture, that crowbarring 'speedy pocket towel' together into one word was more sensible than adopting something short and easy from a less goofy language. I can't help but find that perversely wonderful.

"Scary monster language" is probably the most accurate description I've ever heard for German.

I mean...one jokes, of course. German is certainly a guttural tongue. But it can be a vehicle for profound beauty, as well.

I need to update my list but on my stream last night I realized DK64 is going to be a game thats going to probably take longer than a month for me to beat and its something I might take off my backlog cause of DK Arcade reasons. Anyway Kat already picked a new game for me. Just thought i should post about it.
