This is it. We’re going to welcome 2017 and send 2016 on its way by playing videogames. Josh is streaming a bunch of stuff and we’re all going to hang out and have and experience that, for the sake of argument, we’re going to refer to as fun. The stream is here, or you can watch it via the embed after the jump.

Let’s do this!

EDIT: And done. Happy New Year, internet.

    Watching the stream in two windows at once is ridiculous.

  2. Isaac says:

    On the implausibility of the whole Helmet Kruger thing: this is a series about a bald clone from Romania who is the perfect assassin & master of disguise who (despite being a White, blue-eyed man) has been able to successfully disguise himself as a Hong Kong gangster, an Indian bodyguard & policeman, a Moroccan soldier, an Afghan terrorist, and even a Thai hotel security officer. It’s a series that requires suspension of disbelief in order to be a globe-trotting adventure.

  3. Dragmire says:

    It was quite fun.

    It’s nice that I was finally off work to catch one of these live.

    Oh, and Happy New Year to you too!

    Well, Tharsis wasn’t as funny as I’d hoped, but overall that was a fun stream once Josh climbed off the vomit comet. Please, please, please, never stream VR ever again. All the complaints about Josh’s mouse-whipping are intensified. I literally couldn’t stand to watch it, because I was feeling seasick. And I’m basically immune to motion sickness.

    • David says:

      I actually bought Tharsis because of watching the stream. It very strongly looks like a board game rather than a video game, which may have been Josh’s issue. I’d say it’s sort of a cross between Space Alert and Alien Frontiers.

    • Ninety-Three says:

      I wouldn’t say I was feeling seasick, but after ten minutes of VR stream I developed a headache and turned it off. I turned the stream back on fifteen minutes later and within seconds I could feel the pain returning.

      So, seconded. VR streaming is unpleasant.

  5. Luhrsen says:

    DOH! I completely forgot this was happening. I spent New Years reading the FFX blog instead. :P

    It’s late, but if you care to change this typo – “you can watch via the via the embed”.
