Eurogamer Thoughts

Will M: It’s astounding that it took this long for this game to be made. I was playing “What’s the big idea?” and “Acrophobia” a dozen years ago, and have always, always loved the idea of game shows online. This game does it perfectly, and it is far more fun with four people sitting around the TV than it has any right to be.

Forksclovetofu: Really more of a rough draft than a final product but this is some real “future of video games” happening as we speak. Once they bump the schedule up to four live hours of this sort of programming per night, I may stop watching television… though I need more friends playing this live for me to waste that much time without shame.

Winning at 1 vs. 100

JimD: This is still totally flawed, but they seem to be improving it as they go along, and even in its broke form it’s still a really fun night in. Haven’t yet been the one. Or even in the mob. Kinda dreading it ever happening.

Inside the Studio

Jjjusten: It’s bar trivia in your house, with less drunks but more product placement than you can shake a stick at. Kudos to Microsoft for making it work, though. Thankfully it isn’t just dolt level trivia. There seems to be some magic involved in the high scores that I don’t comprehend, and the new way selection to be in the mob or be the one seems to reward obsessive time suck that I will never be a part of and the prizes seem pretty ungenerous compared to the odds of winning them. Hey, it’s free so what the hell.
