I’m really starting to warm up to Larry. Last episode he tried to kill Lee, but today he’s just arguing to leave strangers to die, demanding food in a threatening manner, and being incredibly incompetent. If he keeps improving like this then in another two or three episodes he might only be the second most horrible person alive.
Still, I have to give the game credit. Larry is the good sort of antagonist. (If not antagonist, then antagonizing character, if you feel the need to split that particular hair.) He fits in the world and he has his reasons for being the way he is. As Roger Ebert loves to say, he’s the guy you love to hate.
I do wonder what the group is doing here. Kenny’s truck was just out of gas, but it should still work. (Remember we left it about a block from the pharmacy.) If the food is running low, why aren’t we on the road? As we’ll find out tomorrow, we have fuel now so we’re free to leave. This place is a dead end. I know Kenny is trying to fix up the RV, although the only reason to fix the RV is so we have enough space for everyone. But certainly a couple of people could go in the pickup and forage for food.
These questions aren’t central to the story or anything. This situation is perfectly plausible. It’s just that the odd time-jump between episodes left me wondering what I’d missed and how we arrived at this particular set of circumstances.
The No Politics Rule
Here are 6 reasons why I forbid political discussions on this site. #4 will amaze you. Or not.
Resident Evil 4
Who is this imbecile and why is he wandering around Europe unsupervised?
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
A video discussing Megatexture technology. Why we needed it, what it was supposed to do, and why it maybe didn't totally work.
The Biggest Game Ever
How did this niche racing game make a gameworld so massive, and why is that a big deal?
