LJ’s Romantic Game Corner – Borderlands, Lara Croft and Don’t Starve Together.

Even the lonely gamer sometimes prefers to be a together gamer and especially for this we have created LJ’s Romantic Game Corner. In this latest edition of this sweet section, we dive into three great co-eds for those sweet gaming moments with your Player2.

Borderlands

Discovering a world full of alien scum together in a shooter, that sounds like Halo. However, there are many more games that make that a great co-op experience, such as Borderlands. Borderlands does things slightly differently. The game doesn’t take itself too seriously, features cute robots like Claptrap and a special cell-shaded cartoon style.
A moment when you love to pick your fingers loose from your controller for a sweet hand kiss: when you can finally keep up with your pooch in the car. Driving in Borderlands is challenging and deserves a reward.
Make sure all your game consoles aren’t out on the street yet when: you laugh a little too hard at Claptrap who exclaims “Hey everybody! Check out my package!”

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

A game character that you wouldn’t expect in a co-op game so quickly, that’s Lara Croft. Still, our adventurer did a few co-op outings that are very entertaining. You can play it alone, you can play it with the three of you, but the best thing is to do Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris with the two of you. Strolling through all the tombs together, looking for solutions to puzzles, with some shooting action here and there: it’s wonderful. The difficulty is a bit low, so collecting diamonds for better gear is not really necessary. However, that also makes the game accessible to non-gamers and that also puts the focus more on puzzling, which is where the game thrives because cooperation is essential in that.
This is when your fave sidekick takes you in for a big victory kiss: if your poekie has grasped a puzzle much earlier than you and without being know-it-all tells you what you need to do to bring you closer to the solution.
Check on Facebook if your lover has updated his or her relationship status if: if your poekie gets through a puzzle much earlier than you and tells you in an extremely know-it-all way (with sighs in between) what you need to do to bring you closer to the solution.

Don’t Starve Together

It must be hell to be hungry and die of it too. That thought makes Don’t Starve so addictive: it’s nice to help your character survive. Especially if you can do that with the two of you in Don’t Starve Together. Where the original game responds to that lonely feeling, this is a variant that does everything it can to show you that working together brings you much more than wanting to do everything alone. While the game world tries to do everything it can to destroy you completely, you beat yourselves through it. If you thought that kissing under the Eiffel Tower was romantic then clearly you haven’t experienced this game yet.
Your Romeo or Juliet is likely to get a big shot of oxytocin when: he or she notices that you are really making progress together in this trial and error game. The first few times you can play for less than a minute, but perseverance (sexy!) Can help you survive together better and better.
There is probably a controller in your television or in some other painful area if: you are still doing way too much on your own. Of course you are used to that from the original, but in this co-op version, collaboration is the essence of survival. If you don’t, you’re basically leaving your partner for dead.
