The world of art has changed beyond recognition. I’m not sure it’s that change has to do with the fact that art is an invention of man, but that the world is increasingly overrun with art.
This is the same world that the people of my hometown, the UK, live in. They have a lot of art as well as a lot of poverty. I’m not saying that art should be the solution to the human condition, but I do think that it should be a part of our life.
Im not talking about just art, I’m talking about the entire culture of art and the way the world is. I know that all of our governments are looking to the arts and culture for some kind of stimulus and that we should all be contributing to this. However, we should not allow art to become the sole reason for the existence of our country. Art is an extremely powerful tool, so if we allow it to take over, then we are allowing ourselves to become a soulless nation.
The reason I’m talking about this is because I think it’s important to remember that art is a part of our culture. If we don’t support art, we might as well not exist. In fact, I think we need to encourage the arts and culture, because the lack of art means the lack of culture. Art is a tool, it can be used by the government, it can be used by individuals, it can be used by corporations, and it can be used by other people.
While this sounds like a cop-out, it also could be a really smart move by Arkane Studios. The most interesting thing about Deathloop is the way it’s being played out. To understand the game, you have to know a little about the history of the genre and the game in question.
We start in the early 2000s with the original Metal Gear series. Then we move onto the first Metal Gear Solid and its follow-up, Snake Eater, and the first Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. Then we move on to the 2nd and 3rd Metal Gear Solid games, and a few other games like Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
With Deathloop, we are taking on the role of a general. The game is set in WW2 and we play as a general in charge of a unit of soldiers called the “brigade.” The brigade is led by a colonel and includes a lot of different soldiers, including soldiers who are more “tough” (we won’t go into it too much) and ones who are more “soft” (we won’t go into it too much).
The brigade is a very unusual military unit. It’s not a regular army so it uses the traditional soldier model (though we’ll definitely make a comment about that in the next chapter) with a commander who’s in charge of the troops, a major, and a platoon leader. All of which are able to use their own firepower and are also able to communicate with each other.
Brigadier General Nicholson has two main roles in Deathloop. First and foremost is as the commander of the brigade. This is one of the hardest things for any game to do. One of the main reasons the developers didn’t want to do it in the first place is because it would have made it very easy for the players to run away from the game.
Brigadier General Nicholson is a soldier, but he’s also a commander who doesn’t really have a lot to say. A lot of his talk is in response to the player, when he’s trying to get the player to do something. That is, he doesn’t have much to say. His most significant statements are in response to the player, when he’s trying to get the player to do something.
