SimBatman: Making a run for the border [Sep. 7th, 2008|08:18 pm]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Every once in a while the game surprises me. This time it just about knocked me off my feet.

The Man of Tomorrow makes sandwiches. Alone.

The welcome wagon arrives -- remember Goddamn Batman's little friend Cliff Dover? These are his parents, Ben and Carrie. Guy on the right is Mega Droid (his wife's named Ann), a C3P0 skin under normal hair and clothing; I really like the effect.

Is Wonder Woman (a) enthusiastically agreeing with Carrie Dover (b) emphasizing a particular point (c) preparing to swallow Carrie's head whole?

Superman eats. Alone. It’s not easy to be me....

Yes, Cassie, I know you were researching the technology of the New Gods, but you still shouldn't Google "Mother Box." (Joke entirely stolen.)

Droid (in Anthony Daniels voice): Wonder Woman, I've heard that some criminals are planning a massive criminal enterprise in this city. Will you be able to protect us?
Wonder Woman: You're stupid, and I hate your hair. Shut up.

Wonder Girl: "I am interested in a career in politics! I would like to infiltrate and destroy the male hegemony from within!"
Robin: "The golden android is an idiot."

Wonder Woman: "You need to remember, Cassie, the patriarchy is...is like a sumo wrestler...."

Robin: Most scholars believe sumo to have evolved from Shinto rituals into the common perception of it as a sport and as a martial art.
Wonder Woman: Tim, what have I told you about Wikipedia? It doesn't count unless it's in print. Or on the Drudge Report.
Robin: Sorry.

Robin: I would like to play an organized sport. Say, perhaps, tennis.
Droid: ...I'm done with my sandwich, can I leave now?

Wonder Woman: ...I think we can afford a maid. Or a butler, even. That'd be nice. Maybe even, Hera help me, a dishwasher....

Wonder Girl: Okay, I totally wasn't going to say anything but WHAT THE HELL ARE THOSE TWO DOING IN THE DEN?

Wonder Woman: Just try not to stare. They're...they're not like us.

Droid: Hey.
Superman: Hey.
Droid: How ya doin'?
Superman: Depressed.
Droid: Sorry.
Superman: S'okay, man.

Droid: What'cha watching?
Superman: Cute Overload Network.
Droid: What's on?
Superman: This is Tiki the Pissed-Off Siamese Cat.
Droid: Okay.
Superman: He's pissed off.
Droid: I see. *pause* You know what would make you feel better?
Superman: What?


Carrie: ...And they never let me ride on the school bus again.
Droid: Harsh.
Carrie: That's what the coroner said.

Somewhere, Arthur Curry is laughing his ass off.

Meanwhile, at the Hall of Doom....

"No, no, L-E-X, L-E-X Luthor. Yes. I understand my franchise obligations, yes."

Luthor: Attention, my minions: I have purchased Taco Bell, and I am going to recruit some personnel and stock it to further our plan for economic dominance.
Fett: *schnarf schnarf schnarf*
Luthor: You may not come with me.
Maul: It's okay, man, I'm full.

Luthor: Urge to kill...rising....

Luthor: Here it is. My empire begins anew here, in this paved and prefab piece of purgatory.

Luthor: I...aha. Hm. It has been a while since I've actually been in a Taco Bell. It's a bit more upscale than I'd imagined. Still, this is too much.

Luthor: And in this corner, we shall place....

Luthor: Forty cakes. And that's terrible. I shall hire some pathetic sniveling low-rent employees and await my first custo....
*front door opens*
Luthor: Good evening, sir, and welcome to Luthor's Taco Bell and Cake Emporium, how may...I...assist....

Luthor: ...the Goddamn Batman?
Yes, the first Sim to walk off the street and into the Taco/Cake Bell is none other than the Goddamn Batman. I swear I could not have planned that any better.

Luthor: Yes, employees! Assemble! March to my orders! The Dark Knight shops this eve! We have no time to waste!

Luthor (thinking): I'm going to sell you a cake harder than anyone has ever sold you a cake before.

Luthor: This is delicious cake, you must eat it.
Goddamn Batman: ...Yeah, okay.

Luthor pats Goddamn Batman reassuringly on the shoulder. Also, can I note how the uber-scowling face Luthor has may look ridiculous sometimes, it really works here? He's practically grimacing with effort.

Goddamn Batman: I bought a cake! And I can eat it!

Cashier: *drools on self*
Goddamn Batman: Have you never worked a cash register before? I understand it's a complicated piece of equipment, but....
Cashier: *twitches*
Goddamn Batman: Can..can we pick up the pace a bit? I'm going to be late for my nocturnal brooding.

Goddamn Batman: I give you moneys.
Cashier: *snort*

I'm really not too sure what happened here. The woman being waited on with a Wonder Woman tiara was minding her own business when the waitress walked over to her and started talking, and here she's miming holding a machine gun and making a budda-budda-budda noise. I can't really overemphasize how weird this was.

And Jamie Mythbuster comes wandering into Evil Taco Cake Bell.

Luthor: It's one-thirty in the morning. That's when the macaws come out.

Luthor: I'm sure a man of your reputation and analytical background can appreciate the appeal of cake.
Jamie: It is tasty, of that, I am certain.

Jamie: Okay, I'll buy a cake. Will that make you happy?
Luthor: Will it!


Yes, it's almost three in the morning and Lex Luthor is skipping rope in the parking lot of a Taco Bell half-filled with cake.

Next time:

Zatanna Zatara. Heroine. Magicienne. Bird-watcher.

And also the worst possible pun with these characters that I could come up with.

HAHAHAHA upscale Taco Bell FORTY CAKES emprium <33333

Good god, this is the funniest thing ever.

See, regular Sims are just kind of boring to me. But these? These are so out-of-character that it's hilarious.

...My god. Has someone done Watchmen Sims yet?

Oh dear God that's a frightening proposition. Hate to imagine what the twelfth post would look like; I think the game crashes if you kill that many NPCs.

So many super-heroes/villains... The possibilities are endless. And even for ones where there aren't skins around for their super-selves, you could live out their alter egos. Asshole genius, Tony Stark for example. Or fellow asshole genius, Reed Richards with his spouse Sue "Got Told Twice" Richards.

That's actually the second Tony Stark recommendation. Hrm. I don't know that the Sims engine properly allows for full Stark debauchery, but it's always worth a try....

The Goddamn Batman buying cakes from Lex Luthor in a Taco Bell? That's about 40 different flavours of awesome.

By the way, I've just linked you from Scans Daily, home to many a comic book geek like myself. Prepare to have a lot more hits, my friend. You deserve 'em.

Aw, thanks! Although I admit to still being somewhat baffled by its appeal, I won't argue. As long as someone finds it diverting, that's reason enough for me. Glad y'all are diggin' it.

Oh, Grodd, that was brilliant.

Superman brooding about, and Luthor skipping rope, particularly, make a brilliant combination.
