So we did the samurai movie plot in Trek to Yomi, in which the protagonist watches their mentor get killed as a child and then trains for years before going flip-out spanky-wanky all over the baddies responsible and eventually concluding that revenge isn’t really worth it, now let’s turn to Sifu and explore instead the martial arts movie plot, in which the protagonist watches their mentor get killed as a child and then trains for years before going flip-out spanky-wanky all over the baddies responsible and eventually concluding that revenge isn’t really worth it, while not wearing a pointy hat. And sometimes even manages to get through the whole process inside a century, Shenmue. Sifu is a third person brawler that came out a while back but holy Jesus human centipeding Christ are new releases dead right now. They’re so fucking dead they’re planning to start their comeback tour in Sarajevo. It’s not usually this bad this time of year. I think Elden Ring might’ve frightened everything off. It’s like how it’s easy to lose confidence in your stand-up set if the opening act was a gigantic golden dancing rhinoceros that spunked diamonds at ballistic velocity and killed eleven audience members.
