18 Sep RATCHET & SKANK: SIDE-SEAT GAMING SUCKS | ICONOCLASTS
Nat plays “Iconoclasts”, and Tyra and LaughingMan drive her crazy with their side-seat gaming.
One thing that Iconoclasts does well is the tasteful, minimal use of in-game tutorials. In contrast, the modern lengthy, trite, and condescending tutorials are something Nat and LaughingMan can’t stand. However, it’s soon apparent to Nat that the only thing more annoying and insufferable than in-game tutorials are people who are watching you play the game…
Tyra gets Nat and LaughingMan hooked on the 2D action puzzle platformer, “Iconoclasts”. Tyra does an excellent job at giving us the lowdown on one of her favorite games, and hints at darker aspects of the game’s story. Another point to praise about Iconoclasts is the very non-hamfisted, more organic way to present strong female characters and diversity without being “woke” or to far “up your arsenal”.
