Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes: A Bomb Diffusal Game

The Global Game Jam went down last week, and when you get enough crazy people in a room together, madness is to be the only outcome. Which brings us to Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, a co-op game where a player attempts to disarm a bomb as guided by someone who can't see anything they are doing.

This Week in Co-Op: PUG'ing it

Nope, I’m not referring to Andrew’s adorable dogs, sadly. I continue our TWIC play-with-randoms assignment series and take it into the MMO waters. We joke about the hell of public lobbies and matchmaking over XBL and Steam and whatnot (though it sounds like everyone so far on this assignment has had either positive or apathetic experiences - no outright negative ones, interestingly enough), but MMOs have their own special flavor of this hell known as Pick-Up Groups (or PUGs, for short). PUGs are most commonly used for dungeon groups but can be used for more difficult quests or anything that requires a group of people.
