Unter Brüdern

Brothers Titelbild - Zwei Brüder umarmen sich

Lästig, belastend, mühsam, beschwerlich, mühselig, leidig, unangenehm, anstrengend, penetrant, ermüdend, kräftezehrend, aufreibend, strapaziös. Mein Bruder. Er geht mir mal wieder mächtig auf den Sack. Zerrt an meinen Nerven. Macht mich mürrisch.

Was mich noch viel mürrischer, ja gar aggressiv gemacht hat, war letzthin die eine Bustüre. Ich war mit meinem Bruder in der Stadt einkaufen. Wir fuhren schwer beladen mit dem Bus nach Hause. Er stieg vor mir aus, ich wollte ihm das mit meinen zwei Taschen drei Schritte später gleichtun. Da schliesst sich die automatische Türe, obwohl ich quasi schon einen Fuss in der Freiheit hatte – und zack, mit voller Wucht an die Stirn.

Eine Stunde später – übrigens an meinem ersten Ferientag – sitze ich im City Notfall und muss die Wunde nähen lassen. Ich werde in ein Zimmer geführt, wo mich bald ein nuschelnder Arzt empfangen sollte. Mit einer Hand- und Kopfgeste fragt er nach, warum da noch so einer sitzt. „Das ist mein Bruder, er begleitet mich“. Nicht nur hat er mich hierher begleitet, er hat mich auch in meinem Leben ständig begleitet. Und tut dies immer noch.

Auch wenn man sich manchmal gegenseitig erwürgen könnte, Geschwister sind wichtig. Für mich existiert kein anderer Mensch, der mir so nahe steht, wie mein Bruder. Ein nicht unwichtiger Teil, der uns verbindet, sind Videospiele. Und so ist es kein Zufall, dass ich nicht über Brothers berichten kann, ohne auch meinen Bruder zu erwähnen – zumal er mir das Spiel empfohlen hat.

Ich bin ihm sehr dankbar dafür. Nicht, weil mir das Spiel nun etwas über meinen Bruder oder allgemein über die Liebe zwischen Brüdern beigebracht hätte. Viel eher kam ich in den Genuss eines der spielerisch und gleichzeitig erzählerisch innovativsten Videospiele aller Zeiten. Nirgends anders erschien mir die ludonarrative Dissonanz so gering wie in Brothers. Ohne Sprache, ohne Erklärungen und ohne Interface erspiele ich mir die Ereignisse der Brüder, die ich beide gleichzeitig mit einem Pad steuere – den grösseren mit dem linken Joystick und den kleinen mit dem rechten. Die beiden Trigger dienen als Aktionsknöpfe.

Das Spiel kommt tatsächlich nur mit zwei Knöpfen und den beiden Joysticks aus – und ohne Text oder Sprache. Alles, was ich tun muss, erklärt mir die Spielwelt. Und so manches kann ich tun, ohne dass mich das Spiel dazu zwingt oder verleitet. Dennoch entsteht aus meinen Handlungen immer eine kleine Geschichte. Manchmal entsteht sie im Kopf des Spielers, manchmal löse ich mit den Aktionsknöpfen kleine Gesten und manchmal grosse Taten aus.

Das beginnt bei der Art und Weise, wie die beiden Brüder an einer Blume riechen, geht über die Entscheidung, ob ich am Wegrand Basketball spielen, nichts tun oder dem armen spielenden Kind den Ball wegnehmen möchte bis hin zur Rettung eines Lebens, das am Strick hätte beendet werden wollen. Natürlich werden mir innerhalb der Spielwelt klare Grenzen aufgezeigt. Brothers ist sehr linear und erzählt grosso modo immer dieselbe Geschichte, egal wie ich vorgehe. Es sind aber die vielen kleinen Details, die es erlebenswert machen.

Und jeder Spieler sollte es selber erleben, selber Teil dieses Geniestreichs werden. Denn Brothers ist schöner als Dear Esther, ideenreicher als The Unfinished Swan und besser als Journey – ja gar essentieller als The Stanley Parable. Oder um etwas pathetisch zu sein und einen schönen Abschluss zu finden: Was mir mein Bruder im Leben ist, das sollte Brothers der Gaming-Industrie und der Spielerschaft sein.

  1. Just recived my katana,iam vary pleased.definlety would do a number on some,zoombie’s.it’s the real deal.you can’t go wrong for the price.

  2. katana sword sagt:

    Absolutely awesome, definitely gives you warm feeling every time it’s unsheathed.

  3. I love it! very good quality. Sturdy and solid made. The handle has a good grip. The blade is not razor sharp but you can use an wet stone. Definitively for this price is a lucky purchase.

  4. katana Saya sagt:

    Seems awesome. Using it for practice and meditation, i love it.

  5. real swords sagt:

    Looks great on my shelf, it is very sturdy and was decently sharp out of the box. I would recommend it to others, and would buy again, simply to have another, or as a gift.

  6. I have many swords in my collection, right around 30 or so, with most coming from Amazon and ranging from $25 – $300 in purchase price. That collection includes everything from Whetstone to Shinwa, with both awful and awesome swords coming from Master Cutlery and United Cutlery names, with nearly all of them being katanas, ninjatos, nodachis, or zatoichis (plus a couple of FF7-style ‚buster‘ swords). I was looking at adding a ninjato from Ten Ryu when I came across this Boker one, and I took the plunge on it instead.

  7. I am a sword collector. Not the decorative type, I love the functional battle ready type. This sword is both in my eyes. It is well crafted with good balance would be good for a Zombie Apocalypse. It arrived nice and shard of course I will fine tune it. After I write this I want to see what else they have to offer.

  8. real swords sagt:

    Just received this and did a few chops on some cardboard and was impressed. The Stainless Steel is very solid and feels like a regular Carbon Steel one(weight wise).

  9. This great! I can’t wait to start studying again. You have inspired me.

  10. I just love the picture you chose for this site!!

  11. The item is pretty much as described. very good quality. not sharp at all but im sure it would be no problem to put a edge on it. ordered it for my husband for valentines day an now thinking about getting myself one. would highly recommend this seller an katana to anyone who wants a good quality one for reasonable price.

  12. AHHHH I LOVE IT!!!! Very Beautiful and arrived 2-3 weeks earlier then expected. Will definitely buy again

  13. Ninja Swords sagt:

    My son loves to collect these, we gave it to him for Xmas and he loves it. Of course we do control when and how he handles it. He shows it off to all his friends. Great addition to his collection

  14. very cool good job cold steel

  15. true swords sagt:

    After doing a lot of research on the types of steel and the way it is made, I settled on the mid range steel in this sword which is not as brittle at the higher rated steel but also maintains its edge better than the lower rated steel. This is a nice trade-off for optimal flexibility and sharpness. The sword itself came with a certificate of authenticity, which was a great touch since this made a beautiful gift for my friend.

  16. katana Sword sagt:

    I chop full branches worth it …it was sweet my boy was like omg be careful of cleansing tool I th ought I was gonna die with the glass sheds in the powder patch

  17. Excellent workmanship! Top notch.

  18. Buy Tanto sagt:

    It is perfect came right on time hands down precision quality, would advise anyone searching for the real crafted sword this is ok be them

  19. Traditional katana collectors may be put off by the lack of a hamon. But don’t be fooled. A hamon is not necessary with the purity and heat treatment of the modern steel. It will resist chipping better than a traditional katana as well as take more abuse from flexing pressure. Hamons have disadvantages as well and should not be there if the the reasons for having them are non-existent.

  20. Best Sword sagt:

    A beautiful well made product.

  21. I bought this as a Christmas present for my boyfriend and he completely FLIPPED OUT ! He absolutely loves it !

  22. Naginata sagt:

    well built, looks incredible, im no samurai, but i feel like i could fight off an angry moose with this.

  23. As advertised and highly durable

  24. Great sword speedy delivery and came exactly as shown I freaking love it and plan to buy more!

  25. Tsuba sagt:

    Very good bokken. Kids love it for practice.

  26. ninja katana sagt:

    If you look at the question and answer section for this sword someone asked if you can cut a watermelon. Someone answered that the Damascus lines are just a decal that can be removed with chemicals. This is not true. You can see the continuation of the Damascus lines where the blade has been sharpened.

  27. real swords sagt:

    This is a very nice , well balanced sword. Very pleased.

  28. One of the strongest blades I won that isn’t truly Damascus steel, but is very close to the strength of such. This blade has a good weight to it, which makes it very easy to cut through many things given it has a sharp edge, which mine does. The design and construction are marvelous and I would definitely give this blade some consideration if you are looking for a good sword.

  29. Tory Foster sagt:

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I
    never discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if
    all site owners and bloggers made just right content material
    as you did, the net will probably be a lot more useful than ever
    before.

  30. I grew up Hawaii a mostly Asian culture and I have wanted a great Katana for about 24 years. I have been to Japan, South Korea and China. I have looked at many shops and I have always found cheap swords that weren’t worth the time or money. This sword on the other hand, is worth every dime. It is solid, well made, and I am proud to have this in my house. I’m not hating on any other brand, I have just found this sword to be worth the price. Also the artwork done on all of the prieces of this katana are crafted well. I have already ordered a wakazashi and Tanto from Ryumon to have a complete set. I know I will not be disappointed.

  31. This sword is the best in my collection, and you can’t get a better sword made in Japan for this price!

  32. Best Katana sagt:

    Great value for a T10 sword and excellent customer service!

  33. Fantastic quality for the money! Great buy!

  34. wooohoo. I can lop of peoples body parts!!!!!!! Chop chop choppitty chop chop look at swordsman chop choppitty chop chop

  35. The sword is oilde not too light not too thick, its edge is not as sharp as it could be but is still battle ready, I’d suggest getting a wet stone to sharpen. The steel is a modern way of recreating Damascus steel so it is Damascus steel in a way. The sword is pretty well balanced and its only flaw is the handle isn’t as pretty but with looking at it more thoroughly its very sturdy. No katana is meant for cutting tree limbs as no sword should be used as such, the metal is long so it will bend if hit against something its not meant for. Although bamboo is tougher its also hollow. Don’t forget to oil it every once in a while as it is a metal that can rust. Treat ur sword with respect and proper use and it will last. It is in fact a great sword and I’m still loving it.

  36. katana blade sagt:

    i am no sword expert(but i am up to 8 now!). i love this thing. i feel that i got a great sword for the price point. i will probably buy the matching wakizashi next.

  37. katana sword sagt:

    awesome sword !!!!!!!, I got 742 out of 2000, it’s a shame though that the certificate of authenticity I received is damaged.

  38. Nice blade. Heavy. Needed to be sharpened for smooth cuts.

  39. Cold steel awesome products like always. That is why I am a big fan of cold steel, they are a little high but have never been unhappy with the product.

  40. I have been surfing online greater than three hours nowadays,
    but I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful price
    enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net
    will probably be much more useful than ever before.
