Tropers: Kain Lupus
This page is no longer being updated and only remains in the interests of posterity

I don't trope as much as spectate on the troping. And I contribute a little. I guess you could call me a troper, but I wouldn't consider myself one.
  • The Useful Notes page in Left 4 Dead was my idea!
  • I have a deviantArt page, but I mostly just do Alignment Charts
  • I entered the first Headscratcher for Brink

I buy most of my films based on their pages on TV Tropes
Socialism is my enemy

Just got Brink, starting to love it
  • As far as I'm concerned, Security are the good guys
    • Guests bitch about how they're treated unfairly, but we saved their lives. They should be grateful for every little thing.
  • I don't feel like Command Posts are worth the effort that's needed to keep them.
    • That said, sometimes I like to capture one that's unguarded just to distract the opposition and keep them unfocused.
  • I much prefer attacking to defending, probably 'cause it's harder
    • I also prefer losing to curbstomping. My favourite outcome is a very tight win

I play Left 4 Dead (not Left 4 Dead 2) on the Xbox 360, hit me up sometime and we'll play
  • When you're playing with randomly matched partners, other Survivors can be obstacles as much as assistance. Forgive me if I'm a little 'out for myself' when we first meet.
  • It's not a coincidence that there are four kits in a safe-room and four survivors in a team. If you take two kits and I don't get one as a result, I have no problem with taking one from your corpse.
    • And don't be like "Oh, I'm sorry. I'll heal you [now / when you ask me]". It's not even close to the same thing
    • There really ought to be a "give kit" key like with Pills (maybe double-tap LT) but there isn't.
  • I don't care if I'll respawn with more health, I don't want you to kill me (it's happened before)
    • And now I really want to find that guy and kill him (in-game). I should've written his name down...

I'm totally looking forward to Dead Island and Arkham City

I love these games. You might not.
  • Assassin's Creed - Sure, the series is flawed, but the first one was an innovation in many ways (I feel that Batman: Arkham Asylum owes it a little for the combat system) and the second one totally blew my mind at the climax of Ezio's story. Brotherhood can go jump off of a tower without a haystack for all I care
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum - The Boss Battles were lacking, but short of that it was marvelous
  • Bioshock - Sure, it dragged on a little near the end, but short of that it was beautiful. The sequel had some shitty GFWL lock that wouldn't open for me after I paid for it, so it gets a 0 out of 10 in my books
  • Brink - I don't understand why it got trashed so much by reviewers. It gets old quickly, however
  • Fallout: New Vegas - Totally superior to the so-called Fallout 3. I've tried to play Fallout 2 but I can't adapt to the old game-system so this combination of Bethesda's system and Obsidian/Black-Isles beautiful wasteland sandbox is perfect for me
    • My problem with Fallout 3 is the linearity of it, by the way. I find the Brotherhood to be arrogant jerks and Dad to be way more focused on Socialism than Fatherhood, so I totally resent being lumped with the Brotherhood on my quest to save my father and his life's work (which I don't give a fuck about, by the way. I would've just walked out of Project Purity the second I heard from Doctor Li). Plus the game had like eight quests in it, which is just poor.
  • Left 4 Dead (not Left 4 Dead 2) - I've nothing against the sequel, I just prefer the simpler original. I feel the extra Special Infected are unnecessary, especially since you need to be able to carry yourself at least a little online, in case your team-mates are useless or detrimental to the cause
  • Mass Effect - The whole series. It's just a beautiful Space Opera and Bioware's best work in my books (given Baldur's Gate and Jade Empire are before my time). I played KOTOR but I felt it was far too Black and White Morality. Dragon Age looks great but I'm no good at it, I can never get past Redcliffe
  • Portal - Short but Sweet

The following are great films. If you don't like them, you're missing something

I can't read literature and I struggle with Comics. It takes so much focus for me that it ceases to be entertainment
