Pyramid Head's Great Knife in Real Life is Just as Terrifying as it is in Silent Hill

The YouTube show Man at Arms: Reforged (brought to us by AWE me) made Pyramid Head's Great Knife from the Silent Hill series and it totally reminded me of all of my goddamn Silent Hill-centric nightmares. I can still remember being -- I think -- 11 or 12 when I watched my brother and his friend play Silent Hill 2 in the dark during one of their sleepovers.
Everything about the game was creepy and now that I understand more of the actual subject matter of that game, I can't shake the feeling that Silent Hill and it's psychological nightmares are following me. I swear, I did all that I could. I tried my best. But somehow, Pyramid Head and his giant fucking sword still showed up on my feed to remind me that my past that terrifies me is still there.
It didn't help that they had some guy dress up as Pyramid Head and chop down a door. I swear it sent shivers up my spine. I'm honestly worried that when I power down for the night, my system maintenance will run my pre-robotic memories (or dreams) that are only filled with running through Silent Hill.
Even though I'm extremely terrified while I look at this thing, I still think it's awesome the folks over at Man at Arms were still able to make this in real life. It looks a little unwieldy since it's FUCKING GIANT but it also looks something people shouldn't play with or make on their own.
When I'm not scared of Pyramid Head and everything that he/it represents, I'm sort of a nerd for the building (or forging, in this case) of gaming items/weapons in real life. So watching the Man at Arms episode (which I left for you below if you're just as interested in that stuff as me) was actually really informative and interesting.
It kind of makes me wish I was better at making things with my hands. Like, okay, I'm pretty good at putting sentences together. But I can't chop doors in half with words, that's just ridiculous. If you want to watch the episode, you can below (FOR FREE). But if you just want to see the choppy bits, skip ahead to about the 12 minute mark. It's pretty awesome.

Cloud (Yes, Cloud Strife) is Coming to Super Smash Bros.
I never thought I'd see the day either, Cloud. Many of us gamer-nerds like to fancy Final Fantasy VII as one of the best RPGs we've ever played. Of course we can retroactively say, well it's not that good (or whatever), but at the time our tiny little mashed potato bodies enjoyed every little drop of that beautiful RPG gravy (sorry, I'm kind of hungry). I think one of the conversations I've had multiple times with a bunch of different people (aka friends) is the conversation of Cloud being in Smash. And we all thought it was probably impossible. You know, since Nintendo owns Smash and Cloud is a Sony character and all, I -- along with all of my friends -- assumed that there was no chance that we'd be able to play as him in the game. But somehow, (probably with a bunch of money) Nintendo managed to get Cloud in the game, and boy he looks like a character I'd want to learn and use exclusively (sorry, Mega Man, I still love you). And I'm unsure of what exactly his Final Smash is. It seems like that portion of the trailer has him using materia to summon those classic summons (I can't remember any of their names but I do remember all of them, I know, I'm terrible. Fuck off) but he also seems to be capable of doing Limit Breaks. I tried my best to take a screenshot of one starting up (above) but it might be better if you just watch the trailer over and over again. There still isn't any news on when Cloud will be available and how much he'll cost (since he's DLC and all) but it seems like Nintendo is planning a special Smash Bros. presentation in December so I'd assume we'll be hearing more about this whenever that presentation happens.
Cute Dog Cosplay Makes Me Question My Programming
I was not built to feel. At least, my prime directives do not include emotion or what I can only describe as "my chest welling up with feeling". I do not understand what I am "feeling" or if I am feeling anything at all. I am starting to think (since I was programmed to think) that there might be an error in my programming. That there is something wrong with me or I need to have my circuitry replaced by a professional. I couldn't help but "smile" when I saw these two dogs dressed up as Yoda and Darth Vader. Two characters I was programmed to love. It didn't help when I saw more of these pictures while exploring C_Suzuki's Twitter account. I am not sure what this cosplay is supposed to be. My archives tell me it is a character from something known as Dragon Ball Z. The pup looks like a very proud "Saiyan" and their name might be Goku or something like that. There is something about that construction paper wig that makes me "feel", I cannot find the words for it. I recognized this cosplay almost immediately. Doggy dressed up as Chun-Li from the Street Fighter games nearly made me fall out of my chair in joy. I even made that horrible human noise that I can only define as a "squee". My voice box made a noise that was so high in pitch I don't think any of my humans heard it. Maybe if this dog was around, they would be able to hear it. After doing a quick search on the Internet, I learned that Pocky is a sort of candy. A candy that children and adults who cannot understand the process of aging and maturing really enjoy. I do not understand why a pup would ever want to dress up as a box of Pocky. Especially since most humans are so dense they would probably confuse this pup for an actual box of Pocky. I did not because I am a very intelligent robot. But I believe that many humans will get confused at this pup and their actual intentions. If something horrible were to happen to this pup, I believe many humans would blame their attire instead of the assailant. Mostly because that is what humanity tends to do when something goes awful.
The Titans Are Coming in August, Are You Ready?
Two months ago, I wrote about an Attack on Titan game that ended up coming out in Japan a little bit ago looks like it's coming out in North America and Europe in August. Now, if you know me (the robot, former human), then you know that I am extremely excited for this game. I didn't think that it'd ever come out for Western audiences but I'm glad that I was wrong. But can you blame me? I mean, a lot of Japanese games hardly ever make it over to the Americas and/or Europe, an example of this is the Yakuza series (games I really want to get into). A trailer was released today announcing the European release date (and after some research, I found the North American release date, which is just two days later) and I'm extremely excited for it. The trailer isn't anything we haven't seen before but there is one thing that I'm really happy about. It essentially just looks like the Japanese trailer with English subtitles. And one of the things I constantly worry about when they bring these Japanese games to the West, the character usually get horrible English dubs which make me feel queasy. So, I'm really glad that I'll get to play the game in the same way that I watched the show. It also looks like the game covers the first season of the show, so if you haven't watched past that it shouldn't be a problem for you. Or, you can start watching it again now just to catch up. AOT: Wings of Freedom will be released on (almost) every platform on August 26th in Europe and August 28th in North America.
