Critical Bit #7:
Brinkmanship

Written by Ian Yuan, April 21, 2013, 0 Comments

So this is the exciting and politically charged conclusion to the Ni No Kuni story arc!

The joke here is in reference to my Counter Strike days. One evening while on one of my favourite servers, some random player busted in with a gamer tag in the name of a prominent UN official. He then promptly began harassing anyone who opposed him with political threats. This person’s razor wit and profoundly deep sense of humour was lost on most of my fellow players. To me it was one of the funniest damn things I had ever experienced online.

A public service announcement: Ass Goblins are in fact real. They’re not just the stuff of folk tales or children’s bedtime stories. They may have been wrought from the twisted minds of some friends during a game of Telestrations (a party game that combines broken telephone and Pictionary) but that does not make them any less of a threat. I do believe there is an entire nation of them ruled by a tyrannical king. They’re out there, assembling, hoarding resources, planning…

And yes, I am dressed as a Red Mage.

About Ian Yuan

Ian has been playing games for as long as he can remember and pretending to write about them for some significantly shorter amount of time. Words often mistakenly used to describe him include: sophisticated, gentlemanly, scholarly and Korean. His favourite time-wasters beside videogames include reading pulp detective novels, making hand sewn sock animals and adding to his skinny tie collection. He does not talk about his day job and neither should you.
