The Book of Enoch isn't actually in the Bible.

It's an apocryphal text.

Durp. Alcohol and the real world have destroyed most of my Catholic school upbringing. That being said, not exactly the most common of re-used story elements.

You wouldn't have learned about it as a Catholic anyway, ha. Maybe if you were Jewish, since they're the ones who left it out of the Old Testament (which isn't the Old Testament to them, it's the only Testament, but I digress).

Or if you were a Biblical scholar.

I could go on and on about this sort of thing (which you can probably tell, since I've retyped this post about five times now), but I don't think anyone wants that, ha ha.

Didn't we have a thread completely devoted to that fact?

Speaking of arty games - no exact release date yet but Jenova Chen has announced that Journey will be out in Spring 2012.

I'm more of a theologian than a Biblical scholar, but like with any area of study, you have to know the sources to understand the subject.

Was that the one I got shut down for labelling all Canadians as French (which I know is totally not true. Canada is a proud country with a very deep history and varied population, each one contributing something to the world community)?

Because good GOD this game is broken. If you're going to throw a Super Salvadore at me, at least have the common decency not to have three Majini come up behind me and hold me there...

The More you know!

All I know is that it was still a better game than DMC4.

In Marsh's defense, we've had at least 5 threads in which we yelled at Capcom this year alone. Hell any thread that mentions a Capcom games ends in yelling.

Pansie.

(I know the flower is spelled "pansy," but apparently the insult is spelled as above. I looked it up.)

That's about as backhanded of a compliment as you can get.

Well it's nicer than saying it's better than DMC2. But art direction aside, it's not up there with the original DMC/Ninja Gaiden/Bayonetta, at least IMO.
