Evolving into bad jokes
Because seriously the title of that game just invites bad joke after bad joke doesn’t it? Or is it just that I have friends who make really bad jokes.
So Evolve is a strange little game. When I THINK about playing it, I feel reluctant to log on and reluctant to play. I can see it as a game with high burnout — but then…
Then you play with 4 people you know and it’s amazing. It changes the nature of the game entirely to something fun, frantic and very mean. There’s something extra fun about destroying a friend in combat. (I say this as the person who hasn’t had to be the monster yet, ofc). Any game that requires good coordination among a team is going to benefit from that team knowing each other. We’ve played together for a while, and there’s a comfort level and also a certain degree of trust that happens.
I still have footage to
selectively edit into me being amazing to upload, but I keep forgetting to bring home a drive from work and the files are too big for Dropbox/iCloud drive. Tonight! Tonight I will bring them home.
The rest of the week looks fun too — I have Minecraft tonight (FINALLY SOMEONE WILL PLAY MINECRAFT PC WITH ME) and then Frozen Thursday and then more Dragon Age. I’m playing and loving more games lately than I have in years. And loving them. Oh, video games.
