We made it to another Halloween!!!!
There’s definitely more fun in posting Halloween content, and we’re kicking off this year’s Halloween month with some fun games… okay some aren’t exactly fun as they are nightmare simulators but nevertheless, tick the box of making you pee a little bit.
Lately I’ve been watching a lot of people on Twitch playing Among Us, and it’s got me thinking about what video game worlds would be awful to be stuck in, so here are some from an endless list!
You might see some obvious ones missing from the list but that’s because they’re appearing in another post and I didn’t want to repeat any!
I’ve been able to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a few weeks now, and while I am not as talented as friends who have the game and seem to master everything, I’ve found loads about it I’ve loved.
There are some gripes I have with the game – not many though! – but I am going to be a sook and complain about my hot takes and unpopular opinions below.
Let me say that again: Watch the HBO show BARRY.
We doubt you just went ahead and did that, so let us put it this way. Barry is about Barry Berkman, a former marine-turned-assassin that stumbles into an LA acting class after following a target there and, wouldn’t ya know, the boy loves it!
If that isn’t enough to pique your interest, we got some reasons why you should watch and… sorry in advance if we get too passionate.
[This post is spoiler-free! Be careful going onto YouTube to watch videos because a lot a very spoilery but we’ve added some videos below for your curiosity]
Picture this: you – a 1970s private investigator – have been sent to the fuck-all nowhere town, which is midst of a ball-shattering Canadian blizzard. Not a person in sight, not even the dude who hired you, yet you always feel like you’re being watched. Between the weather and fight to stay alive, you have to figure out the clues as to what the hell is happening around this town and why exactly you’ve been sent. Full of clues and supernatural elements, you along with your journal and busted car have to find your way around a weird little deserted town that will keep you guessing.
There is no bitch like Patrick Bateman. Before American Psycho was released to cinemas, the only psychopath that people knew in entertainment or popular culture was Hannibal Lecter, but while Hannibal’s brilliance was on display and through another character’s eyes, Patrick showed the cutthroat (almost literally) character as handsome on the outside and despicable on the inside. It’s spawned skincare and a damn musical.
As this isn’t a psychology blog, we’re going to deter away from the ‘inside’ part and talk about the handsome, yuppie outside.
Come on, you gotta appreciate that segway.
The Morning Routine scene is probably the most well known, and the 80s “all excess, all consumerism” banner on full display, as you’ll very much see below, so I thought it would be fun to look at that routine that – and I’m not making this up – many men have emulated over the years. It’s movies, it’s beauty, it’s fun. Bloody fun!
I’m finding it really hard to concentrate on almost everything these days. I can’t focus on a movie and I’ve found myself eyeing tv episode run times and if I can either squeeze in an episode of one of the 1000 things I want to watch, or if it’ll turn into background music as I start looking at something on my phone… or you know, disassociate.
I’ve started to rely on YouTube content more than ever. The videos are shorter and sometimes that small shot of something is more entertaining than having to try to concentrate for 50 minutes. I know, the attention span of a gnat.
So when my brain is stupid-tired or even if I need something to zone out to, these are the three channels The Evil Assistant and I go to (if we agree on something, we cherish it).
