“Dead Hearts”

I can’t sleep, so here’s something lovely, via Short of the Week. “Hadouken dojo” indeed.

“Folks! Folks! Folks! Damn them folks, John Marston!”

While this is probably old to everyone else, I can’t help but be tickled by this scene from Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare. John confronts his “buddy” Seth, who’s always had an unhealthy, ahem, interest in dead people. The undead plague is naturally right up Seth’s alley, to the extent that this pic is the scene John comes across when he first meets Seth in the expansion. In case you can’t tell, that’s Seth playing poker with a zombie.

John notes that some people–“folks,” that is–are blaming Seth for the zombie apocalypse. Specifically, they blame it on a strange artifact he found. For obvious reasons (maybe), I was especially amused by Seth’s response, which is the title of this post.

It’s really a helluva time to be a gamer. This shit is getting smarter by the minute. I can’t wait to see what’s in store in the months and years ahead.
