Guacamelee knows how to taunt its players


6:30 PM on 05.10.2013



This episode of Couch Campaign features one of my favorite moments thus far in Guacamelee. Along the way, you find "Choozo statues" containing the special abilities which allow further progression in the world. The frequency of their appearance builds up an expectation for the player that one of these statues equals getting a new ability -- an expectation that can be exploited for comedic gain. Hit play on the video and you'll see what I mean.

And here's another episode for your viewing pleasure. Note that we're experimenting with some audio options on this one, so we'd love to get your feedback on if you think it sounds better like this.

GOTY 2014: Best interpretive representation of Jeff Goldblum

Someone once told me I talk like Jeff Goldblum. This is not true. I also don't look like Charlie Day, Peter Frampton, Bret McKenzie, Michael Sheen, or Dikembe Mutombo. But at least I appreciated the former (tip: don...more
