Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge

This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. So, here's what we did instead.

Art Hawk: Twitch Plays Pokemon photo
Art Hawk: Twitch Plays Pokemon
by Jonathan Holmes

Against all odds, Art Hawk perceives. Born from talking to women about videogames, he's strived to show the world that Grand Theft Auto, Dead Rising, Gears of War, and Flappy Bird are all important works of art. Some say he's was annoying, others call him a genius. None of that matters. All that he wants is to let you know about the art. He's never going to stop.

His latest query is Twitch Plays Pokemon, a game that has taken the internet by storm. What is it about this exercise in disorganization and delusion that fascinates people so? Artemis gets to the art of the matter like only he can. Visuals by Tobiichi Karlsson

Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 4
by Jim Sterling

Oh look, it's time for more Indigo Prophecy! This time around, we get racist in a bookstore (again), we play basketball by watching basketball and pressing buttons, we push a wheelchair, and we play Simon Says while cutscenes have all the fun. 

Indigo Prophecy thrills us all.

Jimquisition: Toxic
by Jim Sterling

There has been much talk about how the gaming world is too toxic, too negative, too full of anger and rage. Jimquisition argues there might be just the right amount of it. The issue is in how it's used. 

Anger is a powerful weapon, but like all powerful things, it must be handled with care. Venom can be harnessed to our benefit, provided we be careful not to let it spill into our own faces.

Squirty Play - Iesabel
by Jim Sterling

For some reason, I keep thinking hack n' slash RPGs will make for a good video. I keep getting it wrong, or at least picking the wrong games. This is Iesabel, a game that somehow got greenlit for Steam, despite it being utterly rubbish. 

Check it out. It's not good.

Squirty Play - Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior
by Jim Sterling

Hey there, cool friends! I've got more Indigo Prophecy coming to you, but right now I'm having a go at pulling my own little YouTube channel up by its bootstraps and experimenting with things. What yummy fun!

Here, I play Viscera Cleanup Detail for your amusement. I am calling my short, one-off gameplay videos "Squirty Plays" because the name made me smile at 3am this morning. I'll regret it later, but for now, enjoy the squirt!

Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 3
by Jim Sterling

On today's thrilling adventure into David Cage's mental brainspace, we kick the crap out good friends, we get claustrophobic while trying to do our job, and we get very quiet and guilty when lots and lots of racism happens. 

Also, crap stealth and some other things.

by Jim Sterling

In this thrilling installment of Indigo Prophecy, we drink water, play the guitar, punch a bag, play the guitar, and listen to more Theory of a Deadman. The fun literally never ends. It will never end. The fun is literally going on forever. 

It's gonna move!

I fiddle with the temperature knob and get murderous as I play Quantic Dream's true classic, Indigo Prophecy. Laugh along as we murder people in bathrooms, interrogate distraught women, and listen to music about women doin' ya wrong.

Oh Theory of a Deadman. You scallywags!

There probably won't be any more Legends of Dawn, because the game crashed while I was recording and took all the video with it. Buggy game, that is! Fortunately, we have a different legend for you, with Legends of Aethereus

Enjoy the world's most thorough tutorial, and let's kill some Definitely-Not-Orcs!

Jimquisition: Reasons To Pass On Season Passes photo
Jimquisition: Reasons To Pass On Season Passes
by Jim Sterling

You were promised an episode on season passes, in the wake of Jimquisition complaining about downloadable content. There is a season for all things, and that season has come to pass.

Here is a nice little bit of shouting on why season passes are ridiculous, and why it would behoove you to pass up on the bloody things.

In what is easily my favorite Now Bloody Playing to date, I battle Skittlers and meet the best voice actors in the world, all with Legends of Dawn!

I had a blast with this one, and you can expect to see much more of it in future. Way too much of it.

Rhymedown Spectacular: Cabin Fever

Oh look, more bloody poems for your damn eyeholes.  You are totally allowed to look at this video by clicking on it and watching it until completion. It's okay, I won't mind. I won't tell.

Here's some Shadow Warrior to tide you over while our review is in the works. I go stab stuff up, look for glowing statues, and watch rabbits having sex. All in a day's work for this Stan Bush enthusiast! 

We might do more of this one. Depends how much y'all like it.

Jimquisition: Vertigo photo

by Jim Sterling

Let's look for a playable woman protagonist in a videogame that doesn't rely on the same pool of restrictive stereotypes as every other playable woman protagonist.

To do this, let's look at a fighting game from 1994. That one about the dinosaurs. Yes, that one. Because I damn well sure can't find many better example. Folks, be prepared ... to RAGE.
