Wednesday, December 10, 2014


You come home. You hear something upstairs. Someone is taking a shower. You creep up the stairs to investigate and realize that your partner is washing off. A playful though emerges. You step into the bathroom and disrobe. You pull the curtain and...

Between running a Call of Cthulhu game and watching Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, I find myself obsessed with metaphysical horror because, when confronted by the unexplainable and unconfrontable, humans will try to explain and confront it.

That is fascinatingly horrible or is it just horrible fascinating? I don't know.

I really wanna play Alien: Isolation. Even if the last horror video game I played made me jump about and flail like a fish at the first jump scare. Once again, humans feel they must confront such things. Or run. Probably just run. Well, run and hide. Yeah. That makes sense...

WORD OF THE DAY! 12/9/14!

couch co-op [kowch-koh-op]
1. Cooperative gameplay that allows more than one player to play one copy of a game together in the same room with each other.

EX. As someone who totally didn't buy the entire first line of Amiibos to create an army of replacement doppelgangers of my friends to play Smash against, this totally doesn't hit too close to home and neither does this:

And yet...

I'm just kidding because, while 8 Player Smash hasn't really been pulled off under my roof, my friends and I participate in couch co-op sessions almost every Sunday. We've been tearing it up in Mario Kart 8 (which just dropped its first DLC) and Smash Bros 4 (which we usually play about 6 player Smash). I don't have picture evidence because we're usually too eager to play to think about that but I suppose some photo evidence of us playing Brawl earlier this year will work?

P.S. Smash Bros 4 review should be here later this week. Though, one must wonder, what is the point of reviewing something so universally beloved? To put it simply, nothing, not even Smash bros, is perfect. Dun dun dun!
