Wake Joe or Inner Joe?

Postby Joe » 25 Jun 2011, 12:06

Rosa and Joe have just been knocked out by exploding plant monsters and they're now trapped inside pods full of corrosive oil!

Joe and Inner Joe both think that they have what it takes to get them out of this mess. Should Rosa try to release Inner Joe, or should she refuse and force Inner Joe to wake Joe?

Thanks for voting!

Wake Inner Joe, Regular Joe will gain control later since he is the main character, and Inner Joe would be able to defend them from the plants.

While I really do like Outer Joe as a character, he's not very reliable when in a bind. Therefore, Inner Joe gets my vote. After all, Inner Joe is the one who has control of Joe's Powers, so it makes sense that he'd be stronger, right? Also, Joe is the main character, so worst case, he still won't die. But then again, Rosa could die, and I'd be rather disappointed. However, I think that our decision in this manner will merely shape the way in which Joe saves Rosa and returns to New Hammerston. It won't be as big of a deal as the Survivors v. Greybane vote.

I'm a bit torn, because, on the one hand, Inner Joe is actually competent and could get through that mess with ease, saving Rosa, etc... on the other hand, Outer Joe (while obnoxious) is liable to screw everything up and stick around the plants, and I'd like to see more of those.

We don't know if Inner Joe is actually Joe. Joe has deep feelings of love and such, but Inner Joe seems unsympathetic to Joe, and only seems interested in consciousness. Also, Inner Joe wasn't with Joe in the first place before the hospital thing. Now, we know Inner Joe is not part of Joe. Once we got that out of the way, we know there is no reason to trust Inner Joe. Also, as we have discussed, Joe is incompetent. If Inner Joe takes control of Joe, Joe may not be able to return. In fact, since everyone agrees Joe is so incompetent, that means that we all agree he will die, while this Inner Joe takes his place. Rosa will probably also die.

Of course, here is another matter. If we don't wake Inner Joe, we don't know how to respond. Rember, we don't know how much of his super powers are Joe's and how much are Inner Joe's. The only reason Inner Joe keeps Joe alive is to keep himself alive. Abandoning him will most likely make him be irrational and not give Joe powers. However, there are other ways to escape. If you argue according to main character syndrome that Joe would win in option one, it is even more likely in option two.

Summary:We don't trust Inner Joe. It would be easier for Joe to fight giant evil exploding plant monsters than to regain control from Inner Joe. The same applies to getting help.

How do we know that Inner Joe wasn't the Real Joe to begin with and Outer Joe took over Joe's body during the hospital incident and is either hiding the fact or has no memory of it when Inner Joe does remember it and is therefore rather pissed off about his body being stolen?

Inner Joe, because maybe then outer joe will realise how to use some of his powers better. Then he can kick ass and be obnoxious.
