Rent subby's wife for a couple of hours?

No thanks, even I have standards

Well, now that I've learned Subs is into human trafficking, that's pretty much all I need to know about Subs.

What matters is that as long as they remain dolls, they cannot get divorced.

Why rent what we get for free?
 
2021-04-21 12:28:30 PM  
No thanks. I've played the main quest already and the DLC isn't worth the price

Kind of bittersweet for players who HAVE been through a divorce, because they had no marriage-saving magic.

No thanks, I already have my own simulation. Though this might be cheaper than this...

The Sims? Portal multiplayer? Any online game with a tank/healer?

All things old are new again.

I remember Don Ameche and Frances Langford as 'The Bickersons':

I just found out that's what the game was about yesterday. I watched some of the gameplay, and it's really cute and I like the co-op mechanics, but I always chafe when it's one of those "child escapes from real world issue through their imagination" type of stories. It's why I disliked When A Monster Calls and Bridge to Terabithia. I watch movies and play games to get away from the real world, thanks.

You should hear the whip jokes from one particular set.  None of us wonder how they ended up with four kids in five years (or that snippage happened to keep it from being *five* kids in five years).

I thought it was Frank and Hot Lips making all that racket.

As interesting as the game looks, there's no way I'm voluntarily subjecting myself to a game with an "I just want my parents to stay together" theme. Little heavy for escapism.

During one particularly harrowing segment, we were tasked with flying an airplane made out of Cody's underpants to escape a jingoistic squirrel army after we refused to destroy their archnemesis bumblebee after fighting a gargantuan wasp robot.

I just finished watching a playthrough with ChristopherOdd and Luckless Lovelocks; very entertaining game with really ingenious puzzles.

On a lark, I just downloaded "Hobo - Tough Life".  I'll let you guess what it's about....

My wife and I are playing this, about a third of the way through. It's actually a really good couch co-op game, with different mechanics and abilities for each player, that also change each chapter. It's totally worth picking up if you have someone to play with.
