‘My Work Here Is Done,’ Smiles Contented Bannon Before Bursting Into Millions Of Spores

WASHINGTON—His skin already starting to bubble, newly dismissed White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon reportedly smiled and said “My work here is done” on Friday before bursting into millions of spores. “Now that I’ve accomplished everything I set out to do, it’s time for me to go,” said a contented Bannon moments before exploding into a cloud of millions of tiny black particles that swirled out the Oval Office window. “Just know that, if ever you need me, call my name into the wind and I will appear. Goodbye, my friends! Goodbye!” At press time, any White House staffers that had inhaled the Bannon spores were dying in agony as the spores began sprouting in their brains.

Is this supposed to make people think Trump's not a white supremacist or is Kelly just wanting a tighter rein on things? If that's the case are Jared and Ivanka next since Jared is allegedly one of the main leakers.

Ah but Jared is a son-in-law so he's got super-immunity. Assuming he never badmouths Trump or shows any independence, at least.

Okay but what's he going to do next. Because I know this isn't the last we've seen of him.

Already back at Brietbart to "fight for Trump"

I give him a week before he declares El Trumplethinskin an idiot and part of the *~elite*~

That didn't take long. Wonder which of them is more petty.

Is it okay to go OT in your post

I don't think I ever asked you because the election happened but what did you think of FFXV?

People can do anything in my posts except be malicious to one another i dun care at all

FFXV... I like the main characters a lot but that's kind of... it. The problem is it's definitely unfinished and it's clear Square just wanted a title out on a certain date and figured they'd DLC-finish later. The world is, unfortunately, incredibly empty and the combat gets really repetitive really quickly because it's not nearly as flexible as like, Kingdom Hearts or Type 0. The story is... okay-ish, but it's still really bare bones and doesn't make nearly as much sense if you haven't already engaged with all the tie-in materials. And some characters and places are really under-utilized because they just didn't have time to finish writing the actual plot.

Which is to say - it's not horrendously bad. but it's just not that good. I did, admittedly, give up about three or four days in because it's not a me game. Idk how much I've gone crazy about it but I luuhuuff FF12 and how it's a game that gives you TONS of stuff to do and places to explore and enemies to fight and that's what I was hoping for when they kept talking about open world except... in 15's case open world just means wander around and fight the same freaking robots every few minutes.

I felt the same way about it being unfinished. I was just talking to my brother last night about how ~back in the PS2 days~ games had to be done at release but now that's pretty much optional. That being said, I finished it at over 100 hours lol. I did like the combat and side quests so that kept me entertained. But the story was a choppy mess.

(And I think you might be the first person I've met who's said something positive about Type-0? I never picked it up because I never got around to it but there always seemed to be so much negativity surrounding it.)

Yeaah... like... I get frustrated bc I feel like Square's just been kind of taking shortcuts bc they KNOW FF fanboys will happily take whatever is given to them regardless of quality so they can just take shortcuts and rake in money. :/

Type 0 isn't... bad, esp as it was originally a Vita game so it's not exactly like it was supposed to be console-level quality. But the combat is actually pretty good and action-y and the plot still makes more sense than 13's garbled mess. (FWIW I think Lightning Returns is pretty decent but it literally took them three games to make a coherent mythology which is where it's painful)

eta: The one thing I'd say with Type 0 - it's basically XV's plot with an R rating. You have two extremely painful onscreen deaths within the first five minutes and it doesn't get any cheerier from there. Tabata pretty much has a "war is hell" theme going.

Good riddance. His was one of the many faces I was getting sick of seeing.

Although, he is in a position to rile up the white supremacists while he's back at Breitbart. Should we expect more of what happened at Charlottesville, happening elsewhere?

And he's already back at Breitbart, lord help us all
