Chuckle-Bits Sequel Shitshow Ep. 4 - Halloween III

Woo! Hooray! Yahoo! Lovely! The Chuckle-Bits Boyz™ are back with yet another riveting commentary!

This week they're watching the classic Goosebumps episode-- Wait, what? Halloween III: Season of the Witch isn't for kids? Blimey-o'riley.

Anyway, it's Halloween III: Season of the Witch, and I'll be honest, they have more to say about this film than all the other films combined. If you couldn't be bothered to watch along for the previous commentaries, it's sure worth popping in your old Halloween III VHS for this one.

Also, Michael plays the kazoo a lot.

Chuckle-Bits Sequel Shitshow Ep. 3 – Predator 2

Chuckle-Bits Sequel Shitshow is back with another stunning movie comm—

Sorry. I can't keep a straight face. If any one of our commentary tracks encompassed the true meaning of "shitshow", it's this one. We tried to find things to say about Predator 2, I swear. But it's a competently made movie, and competent movies are boring!

You're probably better off treating this one as a podcast. I mean, watch Predator 2 with us if you want, but I wouldn't.

Metal Gear Rising 100% Because WHY NOT?!?

The idea popped into my head the other day that I'd like to try for a 100% completed file of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It happened the day after a particularly gruelling session where I tried to beat Mistral on Revengeance difficulty with no upgrades. It was brutal, and I could only finish her off by brute-forcing my way through the fight, using all my repair nanopaste in the process. Then I tried the same with the two GRADs at the end of the second level, and nearly melted into a blubbering mess of broken nerves and shattered dreams.

The problem is, I overcame those challenges. The game's become to easy for me. And that's not boasting on my part. I don't actually consider myself particularly good at the game. I've memorised very few of the combos. I rarely use any weapon other than Raiden's default sword or Sam's sword. Hell, I've never even used Monsoon's sai. But I know how the game works. I know how each enemy behaves, I've learnt how to perform parries on all of the them. And I know what to do to win.

And that sucks. I remember pulling my hair out trying to beat Senator Armstrong on Normal mode the first time I played. It took over two hours. Now I play against him on Revengeance for fun. I miss the challenge.

"So let's 100% the damn thing," I told myself. Every title, every left hand, every data storage device, every man in every box, every rank on every VR mission. And of course S-Ranking Revengeance, DLC included.

How hard can it be?

Crusade's End is Literally the Widest Book

Look at the size of the book in the photograph above. It's the widest book I own. It might not be the largest volumetrically, but it's the widest. Crusade's End is an omnibus containing three novels and three short stories from the Horus Heresy series of Black Library books set 10,000 years before the events of Warhammer 40-goddamn-000.
