MUSIC IS THE WEAPON! A machine-gun with unlimited ammo is also the weapon.
First of a new thing then. People have been asking for more stuff like the old Crap Shoot streams, which I’d be willing to do, but at the moment don’t really have the audience for. (You need a decent one to give them energy). So instead, for the moment anyway, trying an alternate approach – unscripted LP style playthroughs with a guest to bounce things off. A few recording issues and umming, but hopefully okay.
The plan is to do a mix of games – inevitably, the next one is almost certainly going to be an adventure of some kind – but wanted to start with something relatively short. So! Behold the light-gun shooter about which it is said “Oh yeah, that exists.” How long will its 10 second loops of Walk This Way survive YouTube’s Content ID?
“It’s hard not to stare at the sun when it’s right there outside your window!”
Celebrate the release of Book 3 with a reminder of what happened last time. Missed the first part? Check it out… here. Spoilers for Book 2 of course, but none for Book 3 because I haven’t played it yet. Onwards!
Fighting through the curse of ****ing video, this time Matt and Richard shoot the breeze while shooting demons. Topics this time include DLC nightmares, real-life Pip-Boys, the oeuvre of Mr. George Lucas, the unfortunate comedy of the Doom spin-off novels and why in retrospect Ghostbusters is a very dodgy movie indeed. Also much umming, aahing, and searching for poxy yellow keys whose locations we should totally remember.
And now, time to read a book that exists and is real...
Wait, it’s called STD? Unfortunate!
There’s a Tumblr I’m quite fond of called Kindle Cover Disasters, and not too surprisingly, this has been one of its favourite targets of late. Actually, scratch that. This really isn’t that bad a cover – cheesy, but basically solid. You’ve got to love any erotic book which counts as a selling point, and I quote, “NO LONG WORDS”. It’s also one of the few they’ve covered which is actually a book – a Choose Your Own Adventure made in Inklewriter (from the makers of Sorcery/80 Days) and exported to Kindle, rather than a thousand or so words of gibberish knocked out in the hope that someone will spend £2 just to own something called Taken By The Tetris Blocks.
But anyway. This book describes itself thusly:
“Greetings, sexual adventurer! Welcome a world of erotic potential where you, the reader, get to choose your path through a veritable dungeon of carnal possibilities! But select wisely, friend, because every wrong decision you make on the way to the shuddering climax of this erotic quest will lead to your gruesome death!”
Oh goodness. I think we have to play this, don’t we?
