I have decided to start this blog with a series of acronyms from the past year that, in many cases, have become the most useful words in our vocabulary.
You can get a sense of the meaning of these terms by using the words one at a time, in your own language. “D-Day” means “Day of Deception.” “H-Hour” means “Hour of Harassment.” “C-Day” means “Day of Conspiracy.” There are some pretty important differences between these two terms, and it’s important to understand what is and isn’t going on.
H-Hour means, “The hour when a person thinks they’ll be hit on.” It’s the hour on which someone you like will text you, email you, do something that makes you angry, or otherwise start something that makes you mad.
The title of this post is a joke, which is fine, but I like it because it’s funny. This is the trailer for the new game Blood, Blood, Blood. It’s a very clever move by the developers who have developed this game for Windows, so it’s got a lot of fun.
Blood, Blood, Blood is the newest title from Arkane Studios, a developer of first person shooters. The first thing that struck me on the trailer was the name. It was something like “blood, blood, blood”. Bloodbloodbloodblood. The name itself was also a joke, but I like it because it makes the story sound a bit more serious.
I don’t know if Arkane thought about it or not, but Blood, Blood, Blood is also a shortened version of the name of my favorite video game. It was developed by a company called Bizarre Creations, which was created by the same guy who made the original Unreal Tournament, and is essentially a big game in the same vein as Unreal Tournament. It’s a first person shooter where the player controls one of a group of people called Visionaries.
Its a game about a bunch of people who are all connected by some weird ability that turns them into cyborgs with a weird ability. You can’t say what the thing is though, because it has to be explained in depth through conversation. In Blood, Blood, Blood you play as one of these Visionaries; it’s what you know. The other Visionaries are just there to kill you.
I would argue that Blood, Blood, Blood is a much more immersive experience than Blood, Blood, Blood. It’s more like the first person perspective of a really awesome first person shooter. The other Visionaries are there to pull the strings in a way that makes you feel like you have total control over them. It’s not like you’re being forced to play as a second person every time you look at this game.
Sure the game plays as a third person shooter, but if you pay attention, you can see how the game is actually very much like a first person shooter. The other Visionaries are there to pull the strings in a way that makes you feel like you have total control over them.
