Welcome to the Playpen, our space for ferrety banter and whimsical snippets of things that aren't quite long enough for articles (although they might be) but that caught your eye anyway.
There was the basis of something interesting in there -- I really did like the bits where the charlatan-ness that marked him kind of pathetic in the MGM film were really his strengths here, but it did not come to the fore.
I also don't see why he didn't go glue up some more people. He needed Aslan to scold him or something.
I refuse to blame the actors, though (a common thing I'm seeing).
Yes, there was. And it got half a million dollars. There'll also be a little prequel where you can play as Yorrick.
How is it a choose-your-own-adventure when half of your choices make you lose?
Yeah, one of the things I found most annoying about it was that the only way to win is to exactly replicate the plot of the Aeneid regardless of how sensible it is to do that. The most egregious example being where you can do something that causes your rival Turnus to get killed, which is exactly what you want, but if you do it you lose because that isn't how it happens in the poem.
A)use the yellow flower you picked up earlier or
B)use a rope to escape.
If you choose the rope the page basically says this:
"Nice try. You know darn well you didn't pick up a rope earlier. The monster attacks you and you die. Maybe that will teach you not to cheat."Have fun!
Shakespeare changed my plural "you" to "thou". :( He also changed "what will" to "what wilt".
Yeah, Shakey's grammar has gone downhill in the last few centuries.
But the point of that was?
I think it's probably meant to be a way of demonstrating how Googledocs works to people who haven't used it before.
But the point of that was? I already use Google for a ton, but I don't understand how that's supposed to make me want to use it more?
...Then I typed in "Shakespeare" and Shakespeare edited it into "the handsome and lovely Shakespeare". And then Nietzsche edited it to "the dreadful and lonely Shakespeare". Sadly, that seems to be the end of the edit war.
