A bunch of people have been asking for the full text of the Bionic Commando FAQfic (I just made up that term! Because I’m awesome) from which I read excerpts on yesterday’s Retronauts. Silly humans! It’s been here all along. I added better formatting this morning, though. Just for you.
But don’t expect full text. I wrote up Area One and the game equipment one day long ago. Then, the next day, I looked at my life and realized how it was being squandered on nonsense and shut down the entire site in despair. Sadly, that moment of clarity was eventually forgotten, which is why you’re reading this now, but needless to say I’ve never quite gotten around to writing up the rest of the game. Still, what’s there is interesting to read. Consider it a small window into an alternate reality where life didn’t suffocate the joy and ambition out of me and I went on to become a real writer.
Also, courtesy of Siliconera, Mega Man E-tank energy drinks. So. Awesome.
I don’t even like energy drinks! But I will be enjoying several of these at TGS, I have no doubt. Well, maybe “enjoying” is the wrong word. “Forcing myself to down them through a grimace of agony out of dutiful nerddom,” I guess.
