Yes but the young people who watch Community wouldn't get the idea of broadcast television, granddad.

Hmm, maybe I should update it to accidentally watching torrents of both films on VR headsets at the same time.

Torrents? Everyone streams things in 480p now, Grandad.

Stream from torrent sites, you mean? That seems scarier to me for some reason.

I think it's because "stream" looks and sounds quite a lot like "scream"? *shudder*

Apparently Nelly Cootalot 2 contains a puzzle involving swapping beer-barrel labels.

Puzzle piracy!

Singularity: a game with a bit of tech that rewinds or fast-forwards objects in time. DOUBLARITY MORE LIKE.

Reminded of a couple of our (non Dan And Ben Adventures) ideas getting stolen when I found a Gibbage demo video:



Firstly, Worms Unloaded has the all-too-coincidental idea of a red-tinted London background for their 2D deathmatch platformer:



"Worms Fell Off The Back Of A Lorry *Cough Cough*" more like.

Secondly, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes involved a strangely familiar company name/clever Biblical allusion:



Rise Of The Steal-It Of The Apes, more accurate actually.
