I’m sure I’m not alone here
you know what’s SCARY
REALIZING WHEATLEY IS LIKE
FUCKING HUGE OH MY GOD I THOUGHT HE WAS LIKE A FOOT ACROSS
OH MY GOD YOU’RE RIGHT
I BUILT HIM THE SIZE I IMAGINED HIM, LIKE 10 INCHES ACROSS
but now that i think about it
he had to be bloody MASSIVE
and not only in bedto even fit in GLaDOS’s body
That means GLaDOS’s head must be like the size of an average door
Imagining how big GLaDOS and Wheatley might be just made my stomach drop.
I’ve always thought Wheatley was teenier because of how big Chell’s hands look on his handles, but GLaDOS’s head being the size of a door…that’s probably true. Wow.
size of a door
I’ll admit i always thought wheatley was tiny but
when you look at glados suspended in the air she’s like FUCKING HUGE how can you not assume she’s AT LEAST the size of a door i figured she was like seven or eight feet tall!
man sucks for her when she becomes a potato huh
So, we can assume that GLaDOS is AT LEAST the size of a door, and when you search official art for scale comparisons of her…
…well, that’s mildly unsettling.
Deadly Premonition (Red Seeds Profile) - “Sinner’s Sandwich” Recipe
Deadly Premonition is one of the greatest games I have ever played. Ever. And in a way it’s responsible for the creation of Gourmet Gaming. A few months ago I hosted a play-through party and decided to serve up snacks inspired by the game to get everyone in the mood. There were doughnuts, pie (from Twin Peaks; Deadly Premonitions obvious source of inspiration), coffee, ‘the’ pickles and of course “Sinner’s Sandwiches”.
The “Sinner’s Sandwich” is so iconic, I think, partly down to it’s rather unusual ingredients that Francis York Morgan provides with the air of an urban myth. It’s my belief that perhaps there’s a slight mistranslation though, the ingredients are: turkey, strawberry jam and cereal. I think that maybe the ‘cereal’ is a bit of a mistake, it sounds like it should probably be more of a turkey, conserve and stuffing sandwich but instead ends up as some fantastical mess, and better for it I say!
Mr. Francis York Morgan, You should try this wonderful lunch. It’s more than a delicious, tasty crunch. So says Mr. Stewart.
What you will need:
A Loaf of White Crustless Bread
2 Turkey Breasts
A Jar of High Quality Strawberry Jam or Conserve
Cereal - I chose a Nestlé Pick-A-Pack (Cheerios, Nesquik, Honey Shreddies, Cookie Crisp, Honey Cheerios and Shreddies)
Butter or Margarine
Making the Sandwich:
- I bought my turkey breast fresh and cooked it slowly in the oven with a little butter - but feel free to use pre-cooked chunks, not processed slices.
- Get two pieces of bread; spread a little butter on one and the strawberry conserve liberally on the other.
- Cut the turkey breast into medium slices at an angle and lay the pieces onto the buttered piece of bread.
- Pick a cereal of your choice and sprinkle generously over the conserve.
- Place the second piece of bread strawberry side down on top and cut the sandwich diagonally to serve.
Last time I made these I used regular turkey slices so this time I tried a thicker and fresher cut of breast and I think it’s worked better. I also used Rice Crispies as the cereal and although it worked well it wasn’t very exciting, it just added a little crunch. I made four types of “Sinner’s Sandwiches” this time with Cookie Crisp, Cheerios, Honey Nut Shredded Wheat and Golden Nuggets - I encourage you to use any cereal you like. My taste testers agreed the “Sinner’s Sandwich” is pretty good as a sandwich, if a little strange. Apparently the Honey Nut Shredded Wheat worked best with the Cheerios a close second and I’ve been told to avoid chocolate based cereals entirely - it just doesn’t work at all. The “Sinner’s Sandwich” probably isn’t something you’d choose for lunch like Mr. Stewart suggests, but for it’s cult status it’s definitely something worth trying at least once.
