    “They lived in this kind of homoerotic Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson kind of relationship,” remembers Pratchett.

    Seeing Holmes' relationship with Watson as "homoerotic" means you know nothing about the narrative craft.

    Ok, I'll save you 5 minutes of reading this mess. Here's the short version:

    Rhianna Pratchett, mostly known for her surname and for having had two tortoises who wore leather chaps, reminisces over alienating the audience of well-established computer game franchises with her SJW pathos-infused, nonsensical writing. Those silly nerds, haha.

    She also wrote the script for a rather good parkour game (the game's actually good because of the gameplay, I can't remember any of the script, but I think it's about a bunch of squares who don't like graffiti).


    You're welcome.

    Pratchett himself is massively overrated. He wrote a handful of good books and churned out dozens of entries in rote, predictable filler to pay the bills. But at least I can actually remember some of what he wrote, unlike Rhianna's....uh, extensive body of work. Whatever it is.

    Women can't understand the deep platonic bonds men can have, so they assume it's just repressed homosexuality.

    That reminds me: Were Thelma & Louise just a couple of repressed lesbians, or was it just a platonic bond that (literally) sent them over the edge?

    I can't even remember seeing the film in full, and the answer is *kinda* important for the discussion at hand, so...honest answers please?

    Well, Watson exists merely because the reader needs a place where he can understand Holmes' reasoning. Inner dialogue would get boring really fast.

    So she has writing credits on:

    Stronghold
    Beyond Divinty
    Heavenly Sword
    Overlord series
    Mirror's Edge
    Thief (2014)
    Tomb Raider

    Interesting...

    It's a police state that's sacrificed freedoms for a (relative) lack of crime. Faith (the PC) is manually delivering messages and packages because electronic communication is 100% censored and monitored. You can try to fight the cops chasing you, but it's not recommended since they have guns and Faith can do is trip them up or steal a pistol if she's lucky.

    The story in Mirror's Edge ends up being confusing because it appears mostly as "government bad, citizens good". Basically yet another neoliberal wet dream. You're expected to listen and believe, apparently there were some riots in the past and you were involved in them (as a little kid, which was somewhat hilarious to watch). Someone died along the way, your friend got in trouble, etc. It's kept in a very light teen novel atmosphere, always. Most of the people loved the game for its gameplay though, even if it's 5 hours long.

    Nerdtards apparently have serious issues with processing the idea of male friendship. I remember listening to one podcast where its hosts, very much card carrying nerds both, were discussing that old Jonny Quest cartoon. They kept insisting that there was a homosexual relationship between Dr. Quest and Race Bannon, because reasons. They cannot imagine close relationship between two males without some sort of sexual element to it. And it's just something that I keep encountering again and again.

    In short

    Story was barely there, easy to ignore, and was as simple and sterile as they get (kinda like the game's entire setting). It's kinda fitting that that's probably the best one out of all the games where she had (major) involvement with the writing.
