I completed my second play through the amazing game known as Undertale. This time around, I was playing the genocide run, and let’s just say, it hurt so freaking much. I feel in love with these characters, and having to kill them all was truely heartbreaking. After getting towards the end, I realized that I didn’t do the true genocide. I was contemplating redoing the genocide run to do the true one, but I can’t do it. Litterally after the first fight, I had to put the game down for a day or two. In other words, I will not be going back and doing the run. Instead, I will be moving on to doing another pacifist route. This time, I’ll be doing the true pacifist route, so I’ll be wondering what new changes there are now that I’ve killed everyone that I loved and cared about. I’m sure that some of them will remember. If I ever get the urge to see the genocide run, I’ll just watch one of the many videos on YouTube. Degrees of separation from the actual violence and everything.
I have finally gotten around to playing Undertale. In true fashion, I started by playing the pacifist route. I didn’t do the true pacifist route because I had played the majority of the true pacifist route and a previous play through, and I kinda just wanted to get through to see one the of the endings. Even though I didn’t go through all of the flavor text, it was still beautiful and got to my heart. I was trembling at the very last boss. If you have already played or watched someone play this game, you know why the last real battle is heartbreaking. What is making it worse is that I know that I’m going to be doing the genocide run next. I honestly don’t want to do it, but I must to get the full experience. Wish me luck. I might be racing my way through so I can just be done with it so I can get to the third playthrough you have to do. I honestly do not want to do it.
As you all probably know, I identify as a geek, ten-fold what a nerd is. Outside of fangirling about my favorite fandoms, I love to learn new things. That’s were Netflix’s documentary series Explained comes it to play. This documenary series covers a variety of topics such as designer genes, music, astrology and the world water shortage in short 20 minute episodes. What I love most about this series is that they cover both sides of many of the issues that they cover. The experts will say one thing, but at the same time they acknowledge where others are coming from at the same time. It’s actually pretty refreshing when individuals are able to see both sides of the issue they are discussing. The show is rated mature, but that is only because two of the episodes are on some pretty racey topics such as the female organism and monogamy. They’re completely education and take everything serious, but if you’re not mature enough to watch the episodes, I would suggest not watching them in public. I would suggest that anyone with a Netflix account watch this series, mainly because I want a second season. I would love to see what new topics they would get to cover if they had the opportunity.
In the amazing work that comes from the Dan Brown, I have finished rereading the second book in the Robert Langdon series, The Da Vinci Code. As much as I loved this book, it was somewhat awkward to read again. For whatever reason, this book was still so deeply ingrained in my head, all of the twists in turns that were involved didn’t really get to me. Somethings did because I totally forgot that it was a thing. I was also trying to find proof that would somehow prove what I thought was true really wasn’t. Either way, I still loved this book. I still picture Robert Langdon as Tom Hanks and I don’t think anything will change that. Once again, I’m not too well versed in Catholicism or any of the secret society’s that were mentioned. What I loved the most was that it was still very much rooted in the first book. The main source of this book happening was because of the events of the first one. I do kinda wish the Langdon could have a more platonic partner instead of people that could be potential love interests. He has a thing for women who just had a family member die it seems.
