The mere mention of Halo immediately brings me back to the first time I discovered Christians gaming together. I will never forget spending an evening with Fuller Theological Seminary students, playing Halo over a network. There is nothing quite like playing games together.
Wyatt and I just discovered the versus mode in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The versus mode, for those who do not know, unlocks all character skills while pitting players against one another. Powered up mayhem ensues with each 15 to 20 minute match.
We’ve enjoyed strategically moving about the board while blowing each other away in hilarious fashion. Our match conversations are often full of trash talking while others are completely silent.
SILENT = SERIOUS!
I cannot recommend this mode enough. Reminds me of something that I would have poured hours into in high school. Our discovery of versus mode has breathed new life into Kingdom Battle for my family. If you have the game, grab a friend and check it out.
Beyond the updated graphics and the Poké-ball throwing, I wasn’t interested until this moment (1:01):
Co-op!!!!!!!!!! I’m in.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of being interviewed while playing Move or Die with Jeremy Smith. Give it a watch/listen.
Picked up Blizzard’s Overwatch this weekend. Great game to pass-n-play with Wyatt.
Speaking of, we played a bunch tonight. Here is Wyatt’s first Play of the Game (he did good):
And here is mine:
T: “Just give me a minute to move the shield around.”
B: “Okay.” Continues flying towards the death ray blocking the path as if nothing was said.
An explosion rocks the screen. We. Are. Dead.
Tabitha, Wyatt, and I battled through the first level of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. I could feel the tension as we all raced around the pink spaceship. Each of us scrambling to man the proper command console:
- Pilot – Thrusters
- Block – Shield
- Search – Radar
- Fire – Guns / Super Gun
Meanwhile, enemies kept attacking from all directions. To be stationary is to be space dust.
Communication is not optional:
T: “Give me a moment to move the shield around this time.”
B: “Okay, I can do that. Wyatt, are you firing back?”
Our second run through the first level went much better than the first run. We survived!
But I’m not sure whether we’ll be playing Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime again soon. Even if the boy kept asking:
“Can we play the lovers game?”
4/5 – INVERSUS is a smart shooter that challenges your brain through unique movement and solid gameplay mechanics. A great game to play with your kids and to pull out when friends and family come over.
