I'd never heard of Metal Slug but it's got a 2D retro vibe to it and you know that's gonna score points with this particular luddite blogger...

so far two luddites have been in here and scored..... ergo it's pretty clear

metal slug gets you chicks......

turkey chicks to be precise and after a couple of months you can onion baste them and present the dead fowl on christmas day to celebrate the birth of a saviour......

which is a pretty odd custom if you ask me.......

yes cough medicine can lead to halucinations, read instructions carefully.......

Been reading up on Metal Slug (what a great title BTW...)
YES! I'm all for it... 2D in the house!!

The Elderly said...

2D rocks..... i mean not that there are any 2D rocks, just that 2D sprites and stuff can be just as graphically awe inspiring as a 3D rock dripping with the morning dew...

morning dew as in water, not the recently bereaved synagogue variety... i better stop when im ahead....

2d is more expensive than 3d though...

The Elderly said...

...you've explained this to me before, but I forget (comes with the age.....), but I do remember you categorically proved 2d was more expensive than 3d....

now how did you do that.....
(scratches his head), i shoulda started a Gnome Wiki

gnome said...

Only remember the conclusion too... Damn. Runny mind it is, then. Categorically is used in a very strange manner in the english language, if i may add so...

The Elderly said...

i apologise on behalf of categorical users everywhere.... i can only tell you that english is the devils language, ?? years and i still have problems with spelling and grammar.....

gnome said...

No really. Caterogrically should mean "based on caterogies"...

So, it is the devils stuff then? Most interesting...

The Elderly said...

..ahhhh indeed two completely differnet definitions for the same word....... a nightmare....

like female paint strippers can be misconstrued....

gnome said...

Right. indeedn. Aha! Definitely.
