I’ve had a fascination with Bendy and the Ink Machine for a few months, now, with an intense desire to play it. When I learned they were releasing a console version, I was ecstatic and happy to wait for it’s release – especially with the promise of all five chapters being on it not long after the release of chapter five.

I finally got the game a week ago, and beat it yesterday morning.

Now, if you haven’t heard of Bendy & the Ink Machine, here’s the basic concept:

DC has been getting a lot of attention for controversial things the last few months: the BatCat Wedding, the infamous Damned insanity – both things I was completely fine with. I loved both issues. And come on, people. Human anatomy isn’t a big deal in a mature title. No one cares about Dr. Manhattan’s penis being out in Watchmen.

That brings me to a new buzz topic: I feel like there is an Anti-Tom King Club, full of some fairly silly people that either don’t understand what they’re reading, don’t get fed their fan fiction they want, or they’re insanely jealous. At the end of the day, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, of course. But I would like my energy to be devoted to doing the opposite of most people – when I love something, I want to talk about it and praise the creators.
