Bush Gets the Boot

2008. · 3 Comments

I’m sure you’ve seen this, and probably with better titles, but Bush recently dodged a shoe in a surprise appearance in Iraq. A journalist peeled his shoes mid-press conference and chucked them at Bush. Becoming President may instantly turn your hair white, but it definitely hasn’t hurt Bush’s cat-like reflexes:
Do you know where I can find some sailors?
I can only hope this spawns a huge surge in QTE gifs.

    This brings up one of my big pet-peeves: QTEs!!! Argh I hate ’em.

    Bah, you’re insane! I dig them so long as I expect them to a degree. I just started playing Prince of Persia and the first time a QTE happened in a fight I was confused as shit, but that game is so forgiving it nearly apologized for killing me, so I jumped right back into it and loved it.

    Y’know, the last time I could stomach a QTE was Shenmue. After that, I never wanted to see another QTE again. The absolute bottom-of-the-barrel as far as QTEs are concerned? INDIGO PROPHECY. Man, that game was decent but the overuse and flat-out abuse of QTEs really disappointed me.

    I like cut-scenes, though, so maybe I’m just pissed that these games make me do stuff instead of being able to just watch the action and take it all in. Could you imagine being made to do QTEs in, say, Metal Gear Solid?
