I didn’t want to miss this episode. What an awesome episode. I really enjoyed getting to know you and your story. I’m already looking forward to the next episode.
I love this episode. It was very well done and I loved how it portrayed your feelings about you and your life. I also love how it showed the world of the game through this one man’s eyes, as he was able to experience everything through this limited perspective and see the story from Blackreef’s point of view, as well as a group of people. It was a very well done episode.
For those who are looking for something that is even more enjoyable, there are a lot of great blogs dedicated to this particular episode, so check them out! I’ve written an article about it here, and it’s a great reminder to use your own words.
As the episode was being shown off, one of the actors started to shout, “I’m so tired of being on the outside of this world, and I’m going to get back there!” It was a great moment to reflect and realize that we are all on the inside of Blackreefs world, too.
I am going to get back there too.
It was a perfect example of the meta-awareness that exists among all of us. We are all in this together, even though we may not get a chance to talk about it often. We talk about it when we’re on vacation or at home, because we know it’s important. And we’re all aware of that fact.
And on that note, Deathloop continues the “we’re on the inside” theme we began in Blackreef, in episode 5. Deathloop introduces us to our new party-on-Blackreef host, the aforementioned, and the one thing that makes Deathloop so brilliant is that she is a party-on-Blackreef.
The are on the inside theme has been popular for a while now, but Deathloop is one of those games that is almost always a bit different from what we’ve seen before. The only thing that has stayed the same, is the fact that she and Colt are friends. There is some speculation that they were lovers, and they never got over it, but I wouldn’t put it past them to get back together.
We also discover that the Visionaries have been controlling her and Colt since the beginning. In fact, the first time we meet Deathloop, she is the one controlling Colt. So, we have to ask, were Colt’s Visionaries somehow controlled by Colt or Deathloop? My opinion is the latter, but I’m not going to say because I’m not sure.
Deathloop is the embodiment of power and evil. If you’re going to look at the world through her eyes, you have to assume that she is capable of anything. The fact that she’s controlling Colt is no secret. But that’s not what really sets her apart from other people. She’s not a manipulator, she’s just evil. And evil is not something you can see.
