One ring to rule them all! Does Jason have an axe to grind? Or maybe he's keeping his nose to the grindstone. πŸ˜‰

Ha! Yeah... I could totally see that! 100% Looks like he's trying to sharpen his implement of destruction. I tried to do a parody of the caveman ad RMC was talking about but thought "wait a minute! Jason has never used a stone hammer! But, I know I've seen that boy with an axe!"

Thanks Kernal for your explanation. It's terrific art, as ever. I always look forward to them.

Sorry RMC, I talk out loud to myself / dog a lot too. I’m with Nicky Hill on this one.

The act of a game character talking out loud to themselves is for the benefit of the player. It’s supposed to be a less intrusive method of providing guidance rather than a HUD pop up, map marker or super sparkly shiny item you must interact with - which arguably ruin the immersion more imo.

But I agree it can be a bit on the nose. It could be made optional I guess.

Oh yeah, I have no problem with a character talking to themselves. I just prefer it presented as an internal monologue, rather than outwardly speaking. That said, I guess people speak out loud to themselves than I realized!

They prefer to be called crazy people or crazies. 😜

But what about when a character is trying to sneak around a very tense and quiet scenario, guards-a-plenty and they say, out loud "gotta be quiet. Cant let them catch me"? I mean, thats fine, right?

I just realized I want nothing more in this world than My Parents Play Hunie Pop 2!

"SUCKINONCHILIDOGS" is such an amazing file name.

I was finishing up Miles Morales while listening to this one!
