The Most Fun You'll Have Stabbing Your Friend In The Face

There aren't enough games that involve bloody sword-duels to the death. There are fewer still that suck me in entirely. Nidhogg, out today on Steam, is one of those rare games.

In the video above, my video compatriot Steve Marinconz and I play a round of the addictive-as-hell indie game Nidhogg. We laughed, we cried, we got eaten by a giant dragon that chews on the root of the world tree Yggdrasil. It's all a lot of fun!

"Yggdrasil" is a shining example of the kind of overwrought bullshit fantasy naming that makes me throw up in my mouth.
