Monsters Among Us

Here at The Young Beards we talk about anything. I myself find my expertise within the video game industry and like to stick to what I know. On the other hand I care for my country and I care about our countries moral issues. After following the reports and released videos showing high executives discussing the process of crushing and selling aborted baby body parts, I need to speak on this.

I have mentioned before that I am against abortion, 100%. Adding on top of the already sickening process is that this establishment is butchering apart these babies and selling their parts for profit. In the recently released video Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Vice President and Medical Director, Savita Ginde, says:

“putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing. In public I think it makes a lot more sense for it to be in the research vein than, I’d say, business venture.”

Really now? So by putting it under “research” you think the public will turn their head the other way and just say “oh please continue ripping apart the babies for research”. Unfortunately, there are  people out there that will still deny the accusations but these are the same people who could have their dog pee on your leg and they’ll tell you it’s raining. Denial is a powerful.

Later on in the video we see the “buyer” observing the aborted babies body parts where Dr. Ginde says “It’s a baby”. Wait, so you’re acknowledging that the “clump of cells” your poking and digging through is indeed a baby? If that is the case, than by law, you have committed murder. You have taken life away for the benefit that you selfishly hope to reward in, money.

The video ends with a medical assistant enthusiastically shouting “and another boy!”…..I am blessed and thank God every day for the sweet (growing) baby boy he has bestowed upon my growing family. People need to understand that having a baby isn’t something that should be taken for granted. It is an extremely magnificent process that a lot women who can’t have children would do anything to make it possible.

Many people will make the claim “you’re not a women though so you can’t relate”. I don’t have to relate to understand the meaning of life! Because of life we get to experience the compassion and love from friends and family. We get to enjoy the simple things in life from simply going on a roller coaster to the happiness and joyful experience of becoming parents.

Zombi Shambles to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in August.

Written By: Tyler Oldfield


 

AHH

The once Wii U exclusive ZombiU will be getting a port to current-gen consoles and PC this August. The game will be distributed digitally under the name Zombi on August 8th. The new trailer helps reintroduce the game but no word on how the games dual-screen mechanic will be introduced.

I enjoyed this game tremendously on the Wii U. It didn’t bother holding players hands as they progress through an outbreak on the streets of London. If you died,  your character died, causing them to join the poor infected souls. If you missed out on this game and own any of these three systems, I recommend you check it out. 

Capcom Ask’s For Your Opinion On A Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Written By: Tyler Oldfield


RE2

Everyone has been forever asking for a Resident Evil 2 remake. Now it seems something just might be clicking over there at Capcom. Yesterday the official Resident Evil Facebook page posted a comment asking why a Resident Evil 2 remake should happen.

Hello Resident Evil fans! 

This is Capcom R&D Division 1!

First off, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to all Resident Evil fans, for your passion, enthusiasm and continued support for the Resident Evil brand.

Enthusiasm for a Resident Evil 2 Remake is something we’ve been hearing from you over the years, and has drawn some recent attention in the media.

However, as the team owns the RE brand, we’re not certain how we feel about this approach, and would like to ask your honest and frank opinion about the “Resident Evil 2 Remake” and what the brand identity is supposed to be about?”

I am surprised a Resident Evil 2 remake hasn’t happened already. Fans constantly keep beating the drum for one asking for the series to please return to its horror roots and leave behind the over-the-top action. After the very positive reception from the (actual) Final Fantasy 7  Remake announcement, maybe Capcom is taking note? Time will tell.

The Yummy Pig BBQ Review

Written By: Tyler Oldfield


  “This is everything The Yummy Pig is not”

You know you have just experienced a good BBQ restaurant when you smell like the food itself after having been out of the establishment for a couple of hours. You expect some fresh, hot meat ready to be devoured in a bath of sweet (or spicy) barbecue sauce. You want that warm corn bread that doesn’t require any butter to kick up its taste, but only adds to the already deliciousness. Occasionally have your local bands make an appearance to give the already BBQish atmosphere some life. This is everything The Yummy Pig is not

I was immediately turned off the second I walked into the building. No one was there to greet you or explain how the set up works. Instead of being seated you have to walk up to an ordering station, similar to something you’d see in a fast food establishment. After looking over the menu and finally deciding on the pulled pork sandwich, which is epitome of all BBQ, the gentlemen helping us flipped around his computer screen and displayed a variety of ‘tip’ options, ranging from “no tip” all the way to 100%. Now, I am all for tipping and I understand most waiters/waitresses make the majority of their money that way. However, a tip isn’t a guarantee, it isn’t something we need to feel obligated to do. A tip is represented and based on your evaluation on how well you performed at your job. For waiters and waitresses (and bartenders) this is based on your customer service, your attitude, how well you take care of the customer. To ask me for a tip before I have seen how your service is seems like a shady business model, so I did the bare minimum (I was being nice) of 12%.

After seating ourselves my wife and I decided to go look at their condiment station to test out and see what they provided in their sauce department. The bottles of BBQ had no labels to identify what is spicy, what is sweet or what is regular. On top of that the bottle tops were missing and completely covered in dried up sauce that looked very unappealing. After not waiting to long for our food, my name was called, remember they expected tips before any of this, so no service at the door, had to seat ourselves, and now I am being called to come pick up my food without it being served to me.

The food was, to put it bluntly, dreadful. I had more bun than meat on my sandwich requiring me to throw out the bun altogether. The meat itself was room temperature and was very rugged, it felt like a game of tug-of-war with my teeth and fingers trying to rip apart the meat. Their cole-slaw tasted as if someone was adding salt and the cap came off causing a tsunami to enter the meal. Then you have their cornbread which you would probably be better off eating a bar of soap than this excuse for “cornbread”. It wasn’t good until adding upon layers of butter to finally get some satisfaction for your taste buds.

Final Word: My overall first impression of this restaurant isn’t a good one. With a dubious business model and food that was below underwhelming, I can’t recommend this place. On a good note, their water was refreshing. 


Verdict: 3/10

The Yummy Pig is a restaurant located in the Leesburg, Va area. 

My Most Disturbing Creatures In Popular Horror Franchises.

Written By: Tyler Oldfield



AHH

I love playing horror games. I love the tension. I love not knowing what gross creature is going to be around the corner. I love learning the twisted story of my character to find out he isn’t a hero at all. The one main reason I like horror games is the variety of enemies they throw at you. With a horror game, designers can use their imaginations and make their twisted abominations come to life. Horror doesn’t have to be grounded, it doesn’t have to give a reason why this deformed cockamamie evil is stalking you. For this very reason is why I put Horror as my top genre in video games. Here is a list of some disturbing creatures I’ve encountered in some popular franchises.

 

Dead Space Series: The Leaper



AHH
These things are ridiculously creepy. Your first encounter with this thing is in the original Dead Space,  as Isaac Clarke just finished up fixing the tram, and as he heads back, he sees this anathema scurry across the top of the ceiling. The only thing stopping it from butchering you is the steel crate. You later on meet face to face with the creature and they don’t call the thing a leaper for nothing. This picture should simplify why it is my top choice for being disturbing. Its jaw-less face, solid white eyes, and a scorpion like tail, plus seeing the features of what was once a human is quite perturb.

 

Runner-Up: The Divider


AHH This tall lanky monster walks pretty damn fast that it throws you off guard. Not only is this thing strong and speedy, but once it is “dead” it splits into 3 parts causing more frustration. Oh, and it’s loud groan….ugh. The worst!

 

Silent Hill Series: Twin Victims


AHH

This thing takes the cake for being the most disturbing creature in the Silent Hill franchise. When you first meet this freak you faintly hear baby wines, I mean the cries are so quiet you most likely wont hear them the first time. Then just as you’re making your way around a circular hallway, there it is, still as a statue. When you move a little closer the large monster charges you, with both monotone baby faces plastered on a hideous body with only large arms supporting whatever is underneath its black robe. Truly frightening.

 

Runner-Up: Scarlet 


AHH

Another tall and skinny monster, maybe I am just disturbed by them. This thing is incredibly scary though, With its porcelain  like “skin” and black hollowed out eyes with agonizing teeth, this thing was intimidating to fight. Not only does the brute stand tall on two legs, once beaten enough it’ll bend down in a spider-like form and start climbing the walls and ceiling. Silent Hill: Homecoming may not be the best Silent Hill game but it delivered one of the most iconic boss fight in the series.

 

 Resident Evil series: Duvalia


AHHResident Evil has been around for so long that it was real tough to find my top “disturbing” creature. It’s also funny how i chose an enemy from number 5, which a lot of people accuse of making the franchise what it is today, not scary. Well, this is a list of disturbing creatures not necessarily scary. This beast came out of nowhere when encountered, at first it is just a “normal” human (infected by a parasite) trying to machete you. Until you put a couple of bullets in the guy does its true colors show. The person starts convulsing and twitching until they literally burst, into what you see in the picture. It still has its human legs for movement, but its upper half is far gone and its hungry.

 

Runner-Up: Regenerators


AHHYou see a creature on an operating table, behind thick glass and a locked secured door, you just know that you will eventually be fighting this savage. You know they’re close when you hear their snarl, it is almost like they are trying to breathe but something is clogging their throat. When they notice you, they shamble slowly towards you, with their intimidating posture of standing tall, and of course their gruesome looking face. Just don’t let this giant get to close because he’ll leap on you and make your face his lunch

 

Left 4 Dead series: The Spitter


AHHLeft 4 Dead isn’t known for being really a scary game, sure it has zombies and other monstrosities, but it isn’t something you’ll lose sleep over. However, there are some rather disturbing creatures in the game regardless of its lack of scariness. The Spitter is one of those enemies, everything about it is disgusting. It’s stretched out neck,pale skin with exposed blood veins, and of course it’s comically large jaw and beady white eyes. On top of all its freaky features, it spits acid out of its mouth. Gross.

 

 

Runner-Up: The Hunter


AHHHe may just look like a zombie in a hoodie (one reason he is a runner-up) but his tactics of stalking you is pretty scary. This guy can run on both legs if it wants, it’s when he gets low, in hunting mode, when he really becomes terrifying. Just before he pounces towards its victim he’ll let out a shrieking scream, next thing you know you are on your back being clawed to death.

 

Condemned series: Tar-Men


AHHThe Condemned series deals for the most part with tweaked out meth heads and smelly hobos. It’s when you start fighting the “monsters” that things get weird and horrifying. These guys, who i call “Tar-Men”, were an unexpected surprise. You encounter these creeps when you make your way through an empty building, they’re hanging on the ceiling in some sort of cocoon. When you walk underneath them they break open and grab your arms, and force you to look at its repulsive face up close. When they’re not in their cocoons they are bum rushing you with its friends, easy to kill but they definitely cause anxiety when overwhelmed.

 

Runner-Up: Dolls



AHH
Again with the weirdness of Condemned. There isn’t really much to say here. They’re dolls, they want to kill you. Creepy.

 

Well that is all I have at the moment, there is a ton of horror games I could go through with some whacked out creatures, but these were my favorite. Hopefully later I can make a new list with new games. Thank for reading!
