Flush It Friday: BRB, Killin’ Nazis

It’s Friday afternoon and I’m winding down the work week with the new Wolfenstein game.

You’re all a bunch of damn nerds so I don’t think I need to inform you that today is a pretty big day in the world of vidya games. As of right now you can play a brand new Mario game (in which you can capture the soul of a human man) with Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch. If you don’t posses that chunk of hardware, your other option is to spend your evening eviscerating nazis with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Wolfenstein: The New Order, released back in 2014, was a pretty sweet little slice of nazi-killin’ pie. The story offered an alternative history in which the Axis won World War II and the United States became nazi-occupied country. Your character got to go on a bloody rampage across the nation and even on the dang moon! A fun time was had by all.

Some weird shit happened over the last three years with an unexpected white nationalist resurgence in this country. As a result, the marketing campaign for this nazi-killin’ sequel has been remarkable. By simply promoting slogans like “Make America Nazi-Free Again”, this game has completely incensed reactionary dinguses all across the internet. Apparently, dudes that subscribe to an ideology that advocates for forced deportations and a white ethno-state don’t like it when they’re compared to nazis. Crazy! It’s important to note that an act of consumption (like purchasing a consumer product) is not a political act, but damn if it isn’t funny to watch the asshole that runs “Disdain for Plebs” fill his diaper in outrage over a video game.

So yeah. The floor is yours friends. If you need me, I’ll be in front of my television shooting rockets at Hitler.

    Starting my 5 day mini vacay from work once I leave the office, so no complaints here. Going to be wrenching on a project nearly the whole time, and I’m really looking forward to getting started.

  • Rolderathis

    G: Saved a hospital I support several hundred thousand dollars and was mentioned on my company’s intranet. Lovin’ new Yellow Eyes. Prob going to pick up Wolfenstein 2, previous game was a lot of fun.

    B: Nothing really for now.

    U: And this is where I’d listen to the new Cryptic Fog album IF IT WAS STREAMING YET

  • Jack Bauer

    Another option is Assassins Creed origins, which is REALLY FUCKING GOOD and the best AC game in ages.

    • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

      GORAK HAVE AMD GRAFFIKK CARD 🙁

      • Jack Bauer

        Well thats Goraks fault for making an unwise purchase lol

            lol

          • NVIDIA HAS BETTER LINUX SUPPORT!!! SMASH AMD

        • Rolderathis

          I bought a Radeon Sapphire card back in the day when the first Painkiller game came out on PC. I had gigantic purple anti-space graphical artifacts piercing the levels and stuff, it was totally FUBAR. Bought an nVidia card after returning, never looked back.

          • Jack Bauer

            Yea my first graphics card was a Radeon, then never again.

          • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

            NOO ASS CREED GAME NOT DOING REAL GOOD FPS WITH NVIDA CARD EITHER!!!! METHINK SAPPHIRE MAY HAVE BEEN MOAR PROBLEM THAN RADEON(PRETTY SURE WAS OWND BY ATI & NOT AMD BAKK THEN) CUZ SOUND LIKE CARD NOT BEING HEATSINKED PROPER!!!!!!! GORAK STICS WITH ASUS FOR AFTER MARKETS!!!!!! THEN AGAIN, WHAT GORAK KNOW???? ME JUST UNFROZEN CAVEMAN!!!!!!!
            SMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

          • Y’all could just buy an xbox and not deal with this shit

          • Jack Bauer

            Runs fine on mine lol. Maxed out, all the frames

          • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

            U MUST HAVE 1080 OR 1080 TI????? EVERYTHING ELSE SHOWING HARD TIME STAYING 60 FPS AT 1440P OR 4K!!!!!

    • JWG

      That series will never ever end, or slow down to actually consider making something as quality as the first few.

      How many games into the current (console) generation are there already?

      • Jack Bauer

        Actually that’s exactly what they did. They took a few years off between Origins and the previous one and it shows. It’s excellent. It’s an RPG now and it has souls-like combat, granted nowhere near as good as souls does it, but its a welcome change.

        • GoatForest

          Hmmm. So you’d recommend a rental?

    • What if we had assassins creed set in …. the pyramids?!?!
      brillaint!

    • GoatForest

      How does it stack next to 4? That was my favorite.

  • Dumpster Lung

    I just got the New Order and Old Blood as a twin-pack for $20 total, so I’m gonna start those really soon and then try to get on Wolfenstein II as soon as possible, because it looks awesome. I hadn’t really intended to so soon, because I’ve got such a backlog of stuff and am on the go so much anymore that I’m still catching up on stuff from years ago, but I haven’t played a good FPS in ages, and this is one of the few times I’d actually like to be semi-relevant in playing a new release 😛

  • Lacertilian
    • “quit calling me a nazi because my views are different than yhours”

    • Óðinn

      That’s true. Opposition to video game Nazis is exactly the same as being video game Nazis. You know, logic.

    • GrumpDumpus

      BRAGGING ABOUT STANDING UP TO NAZIS IS LOW TESTOSTERONE SJW VIRTUE SIGNALING UNGHGHGGGGH NOW MY JIMMIES ARE RUSTLED BY MY OWN COMMENT

  • Dumpster Lung

    Oh yeah, if we’re doing Good, Bad, Ugly (which I don’t know if I’ve ever remembered to participate in):

    Good: As of last night, have a girlfriend!

    Bad: I knew this upfront, but she’s planning on moving across the country eventually.

    Ugly: It’s supposed to happen next month (but who knows, it might keep getting pushed back a bunch like it has been)

  • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

    GOOD: GORAK BUYED HOLLOW KNIGHT & SOMA!!!!!!!! ( THOUGH THAT NOT LEAVE TIME TO SMAAAAAAAAAAAASSSHHHH FIDDY NAZZYS AFTER GETTING SHINS BLOWN OFF)

    GOODER: NEW NE OBLIVISDOVIJOHIVGRAWEOHIJRVEIOH; TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Rolderathis

      Love Oktoberfest beers, the Marzen style is so refreshing. Also, I got sidetracked right after starting Hollow Knight, but it’s really well done, love them metroidvanias.

    • Dubby Fresh

      I wanna play Hollow Knight. It’s coming to Switch, eventually. Also, Melissa >>>

      • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

        ONLY PLAYED LITTLE BIT BUT SEEM LIKE IT A GOOD!!!!!!!

        • Rolderathis

          That slow electric guitar solo after the acoustic was one of the first things I tried/learned to play ~12 years ago 😀 Timeless!

    • i want to know your thoughts after finishing SOMA (mine: super spoopy, awesome mind-f**king sci-fi)

      • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

        ME WAS LOOKING FOR SOOPER SPOOPY!!!!!! (ALSO ME NEED BUY OVER $15 TO GET FREE BORDERLANDS GAME) REALLY LIKING HOLLOW KNIGHT SO MIGHT BE A COUPLE DAYZ BEFORE ME PLAY!!!!!!!

  • Lord of Bork

    Just ordered my copy of Wolfenstein on the basis of that ludicrous screenshot. The New Order was solid, although worth noting that none of it took place in the US.

    • Oops

      • Lord of Bork

        #FAKENEWS

    • Count_Breznak

      Im pretty sure all of it happeneds in the US.

      • Lord of Bork

        The new one is entirely in the US, the last one in the series is all in Europe/North Africa/The Gotdang Moon

        • JWG

          Isn’t “The Moon” American Territory?

          I’m sure Newt Gingrich wanted to make it so at some point.

          • Kyle Reese

            Yes it is, our flag is planted there. Now, it might not remain that way if Elon Musk gets back there first and corporatizes it.

  • Óðinn

    “Killin’ Nazis”?! Hey look, I don’t even game. But killing’ Nazis is never wrong. I endorse this action.

    • Lord of Bork

      If no Nazis are available, a hipster with an undercut is a viable alternative.

      • Óðinn

        Ah, an uppercuts for undercuts campaign.

        • Lord of Bork

          God dammit that’s funny

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    U: I was supposed to leave early today but I had to forgo that to do a pitch at 4pm today(scheduled by the prospect) and the whole thing was a total stroke job, they were never interested but their corporate made them take my pitch. Should have know. Never taking a 4p on Friday appt again. Fuckers.

    • Rolderathis

      That’s fucked. Sry yo 🙁

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    Good:
    new Bell Witch record rules hard

    Bad:
    Martin Eric Ain’s death. Rather sad I didn’t come across a single tribute to the guy from a “huge” metal band yet. A huge mainstream not-even-remotely-metal star like for instance Prince dies? We see Taylor, Flynn, Ian…popping up left and right on every single social media network to spill their tears. And important, albeit underground, musician from the METAL genre dies: Where the fuck are they now?

    ?:
    How’s that new Evil Within game?

    • Rolderathis

      I played the first one on PC, pretty cool monster designs. Haven’t heard much about the new one yet, prob worth checking out though.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        The first one was pretty enjoyable. Curious about the second one, but I’m not a huge gamer so I don’t think I’m gonna spend money on it.

        • Jack Bauer

          I actually got too annoyed to finish the first one. The way he moved like he had a tree trunk up his ass drove me nuts.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I also found that the first one was at times a bit too difficult for its own good. I guess it shouldn’t be a walk through the park, but when you try on the same boss battle for the 20th time it gets more frustrating than stimulating.

          • Jack Bauer

            Yea i stopped at that boss that was in a kitchen or something. bunch of gas that you had to keep finding valves for while the boss chased you.

          • GoatForest

            So, no Dark Souls for you, then?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Nah. Only games I actually freak out to are the GTA series and Fifa (which is popular in Europe).

          • GoatForest

            I’m a Fallout man, myself.

          • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

            NEW VEGAS RULEZ!!!!!!!!!!! ME KEEP PUTTING OFF DIVING INTO 4 THOUGH!!!!

          • GoatForest

            Eh, 4 is pretty good, but I feel it is lacking a certain je ne sais quois that NV and 3 had.

          • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

            THAT HOW IT SEEMED : I

          • GrumpDumpus

            4 NEEDS TO INCORPORATE MORE SOCIAL INTERACTION OPTIONS BUT FUCK MY OWN CHILD I’M ON LEVEL 30 AND STILL HAVEN’T BOTHERED WITH THE PLOT

    • Scrimm

      I’m loving it

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        As in: better than the first?

        • Scrimm

          By far IMO

    • GoatForest
      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        It really is the Dawn of the Posers.

  • JWG

    Metal:
    New Year of the Cobra EP has been added to my current ‘Downloaded from Bandcamp’ Playlist, which is otherwise just Black Kirin, Spirit Adrift, and Bell Witch until early next month.

    https://yearofthecobra.bandcamp.com/album/burn-your-dead

    Good: Halloweekend

    Mildly Bad: Must force myself to not spend any money (not earmarked for bills already) between now and next Payday (mid-Month). So of course a whole bunch of good albums & films (on Blu Ray) are coming up in early November.

    It’s a good thing I don’t have any new games to catch up on because I’m still years behind technology-wise, and happy to stay there.

    Ugly:
    The whole of the Reactionary Wing of the “American” Internet community. Requires air quotes because at least half of them are quite obvious Russian Bots riling up the rest of them.

    I’m getting tired of having to block and mute accounts I follow hawking indie bands, games, or films because they uncritically retweet praise from idiots with Alt-Right hashtag slogans plastered right into their Twitter bios. If the “executive producer” (because she paid enough to get that title) of your indie film is a lady whose Twitter bio is literally just #BENGHAZI #MAGA #TRUMP and has a screen name suggesting a typical gun-nut-cowgirl delusion (a variation of “Annie Oakley”) maybe you should rethink your goddamn marketing practices, at the very least.

  • sweetooth0

    The outrage over the add campaign to this game is mentally retarded. I mean the Wolfenstein franchise has literally been about killing nazis by the hundreds since 1981 when Castle Wolfenstein was originally released.

    GOOD: I booked Monday and Tuesday off next week for an extra long Halloween weekend. Goin to see the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the theater tonight to kick things off, tomorrow we’re heading out to Pike Lake for “Terror in the Trees”, and Sunday we’re checkin out Jigsaw in the AVX DBOX. In between all of that we’re gonna try and hit every haunt house we can around town, and Saturday (if the line isn’t too long) Shannon and I are thinkin’ of gettin’ some little Halloween themed flash tattoos done on us (20 bucks if you’re in costume!). Working on a cool logo design for Sarcoptes and I got a gig poster design to do next. It’s awesome that more and more commissions are starting to roll in!!

    BAD/UGLY: Once again, things are all good in clown town.

    • re: backlash against Wolfenstein
      the internet gives everyone a voice. especially stupid people. the disenfranchised souls of the world need an outlet, this gives them one. best to ignore.

  • Scrimm

    Good: cd’s, new music is coming along nicely
    Bad/ugy: work, mailman

  • Count_Breznak

    Good: Located a great bar, long ass weekend, oh yes, there will be BBQ, Im getting comfortably drunk right now, work
    Bad: …hm…well, I still have to buy shit for the empty spaces in my flat, but I’d rather spend the money on a bike. Might end up doing both.
    Ugly Americans.

  • Simon PhoenixKing Rising

    Good: I saw Manilla Road earlier this week. Good, good times by all.

    Bad: See the last time I commented on a FiF. Simon says burn all fucking landlords.

    Ugly: Can’t think of nothing.

    PS: I would absolutely buy a system just to play some Wolfenstein and kill some scumbag Nazis.

  • CT-12

    Good: It’s finally the weekend, gonna make some spaghetti tonight, and I got a free Immolation shirt from my buddy yesterday.

    Bad/Ugly: The news that the singer/guitarist for Pilgrim, Jon Rossi (AKA The Wizard), has passed away. This one hit me with some oomph. Dude was only fucking 26. Sad day. R.I.P.

    Halloween party at the office. I am sensationally drunk. Thank y’all for those comments on the doomgaze article.

  • Good: snagged me a cavelady. fingers crossed it works out!
    Good: heading to Europe for a nine day vaca next week (any Toileteers in the Spain/Portugal region?)
    Bad: gotta do lots of things to prepare for my trip
    Ugly: addiction to Souls games…the only thing that give me anxiety in life

    • GoatForest

      Those bastards are intense. I just started playing DS3 again. I’m trying to beat the Consumed King.

    • GrumpDumpus

      GOTHENBURG DEATH FEST NEXT SATURDAY CHOP CHOP

  • GrungierNine0

    Good: got Bloodborne a couple days ago. Shit’s fun.
    Gooder: got a Blood Incantation shirt, Chthe’ilist’s “Le Dernier Crepuscule” on CD, Cannibal Corpse/Gatecreeper/Power Trip tickets, and Graham McNeil’s “Storm of Iron” all within three days.
    Bad: I get yelled at by old people for 40 hours a week.

  • Kyle Reese

    I can’t wait for all these fuckers to crawl back into the shadows when I blow up Skynet. Without Skynet, these pussies are too afraid to share their ideals in person. They wanna talk about the pussification of America, no. Let’s talk about the pussification of Nazis – reduced to keyboard warriors. If you know or have an inkling that what you’re saying is wrong, don’t vomit it out onto the internet for a reaction. It makes the world a worse place. I am not free from sin. But I strive to restraint, reduce the dopamine hit of the likes and the replies, which you can only get by posting non-sense opinions.

  • Óðinn
  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: a new arena football team is coming to Albany, going to a Jets game on November 26th

    Bad: none

    Ugly: none

  • Xinen

    I took the day off, so I could properly nerd out. I got Mario Odyssey, Wolfenstein 2, Assasin’s Creed Origins, and binged the whole of Season 2 of Stranger Things with my gf. Such a great year for entertainment, my gaming backlog is still huge though I’ve been trying to widdle it down. And the music releases haven’t been to shabby either.

  • Jimmy Calhoun

    Wish I had the hardware to run this thing, or the previous game from a few years back. But I’m pretty much stuck with games from 2012 and before. 🙁
