High School Horror – Vidjagame Apocalypse 390

High school is a breeding ground for all sorts of lifelong fears and anxieties, so of course it’s a perfect setting for otherwordly terror. With friend of the show Micah Seff in attendance, we talk about five games that used locker-lined halls and impersonal classrooms to create scares, after which we talk about Torchlight III, Blizzard possibly moving away from RTS games, and your hometown cryptids and legends.

Question of the Week: Which politician or celebrity would you most want to see stream a game next?

  1. I would like to see Trump stream Kind Words, the game where you are encouraged to write letters of support to anonymous people and their soul searching questions.

    As he is completely incapable of considering any human interaction as anything but transactional or an excuse to talk about himself, it would be a great way to teach him to be a fuller, more rounded human being. Because this stream would be in a large glass tank suspended above the Times Square, and every time Big T wrote something completely inappropriate he would be forced to remove one item of clothing, eventually including even his burnt ochre face foundation, leaving him sitting naked, pallid, flabby cold, alone, and probably scared about the circumstances but lacking any means to actually convey his discomfort other than clenching his skinny, tiny fists and screaming ‘BAD’ and ‘Hunter Bidennnnnnnn’ over and over again.

    I appreciate the irony of using a game that emphasizes kindness as a means to torture a demented, stroke affected Republican, but it wasn’t as bad as my first idea of just having him play Minesweeper and shooting him in one of his extremities when he got it wrong. There’s no win condition, he just keeps doing it til he’s dead

  2. QOTW- In the spirit of our government’s recent behaviour, I would like to see our Prime Minister Boris Johnson play “Don’t Starve”.
    For those who aren’t in the loop of UK politics, our wonderful government recently decided to stop providing free school meals for underprivileged children. In the same month that Boris Johnson’s government decided to starve children, they also decided to give themselves a £3000 PA pay rise. So America, don’t go thinking that you have the exclusive on shitty politicians, as across the pond, we also have our fair share of dickheads making horrible decisions.

    Great show again, VGA team, and hopefully you guys will have a grown-up in charge of your country again soon 🙂

  3. DONALD TRUMP SHOULD LIVE STREAM SNACKS ‘N JACKSON. JUST IMAGINE IT, A STREAM FEATURING TWO OF HISTORY’S MOST MONSTROUS FIGURES: ONE A RAVENOUS, EVIL CLOWN, CONSTANTLY STUFFING ITS FACE WITH JUNK FOOD, AND THE OTHER… IS SNACKS ‘N JAXSON!
