Gears 5 Campaign
Oh right, I forgot I bounced out of Gears 4 campaign so hard partly because JD is a boring wet Noodle of a protag. (Nothing like drunk angry Bender in 1-3.) I think I entirely forgot JD existed honestly (thanks recap video!).
When do I play Kait?! The menu and the promos promise Kait is the real protag this time. JD is boring! 😭 Can I skip it? Am I a bad person for hoping JD dies at the end of each chapter so far and wondering if I should play worse to encourage it?
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
