In this week’s episode of Side by Side, Joel Goodwin of Electron Dance and I take a look at rules cocktail and party shooter SSMP by Actual Humans, which stands for ‘Shoot Shoot Mega Pack’, but I prefer ‘Soft Soft Muted Pastels’.
In this week’s episode, Joel Goodwin of Electron Dance and I don’t play, we talk about the Side by Side games of yore that we’ve since changed our minds about, and why. Sometimes, you just need more time (and friends) to stress test a multiplayer experience and reveal things that perhaps weren’t so obvious initially.
In the first episode we take a look at SplitSide Games’ Fling to the Finish, a zany duo-tethered racing platformer currently in development following a successful Kickstarter back in June.
I’d love to tell you more about Control, the eagerly-awaited Edge magazine coverbait from Remedy Entertainment, the mad Finns who brought us Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break. I’d love to. And I feel… I guess sort of qualified to do so, since I have played Control for a few hours. But I’m not going to. To heavily paraphrase a trademark opening line in the (delightful) Girlfriend Reviews videos…
This is not a review of Control. This is a review of what it’s like to wish Remedy would fix Control.
