Rub-A-Dub-Dub: Robert Yang’s Rinse And Repeat

It’s late in the year, but between Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015, Metal Gear Solid V, and now Robert Yang’s Rinse and Repeat [official site], might 2015 become known as The Year of the Video Game Shower? Maybe. You know. It could happen.

A game about scrubbing a hunk in a gym shower, Rinse and Repeat is the latest in Yang’s fascinating series of free sex games exploring physical intimacy, boundaries, body image, gay male culture, and waiting. It’s also his second Twitch have banned.

First-Person Parkour: Lemma Released With Demo

They call this parkour move 'le uh oh grand'

I never knew how much I wanted games to have a button to let me forward-roll whenever I jolly well pleased, and now I don’t want to leave Lemma [official site]. AND! You can look down to see your arms and legs and body. If you’re a bitter cynic who demands more than SEEING LEGS! then I suppose the first-person parkour with mantling, wall-running, and wall-jumping might please you.

Portal 2 Mod Adds Time-Travelling Legs

You don't need money, don't take fame

An oversized revolver, a chunky pump-action shotgun, a bolt-action rifle, and seeing my own legs: the four things I most want to see in first-person games. Perhaps the first three wouldn’t fit too cleanly into Portal 2 but that fourth, yes, certainly! And joy of joys, a new mod has added that very feature, so I spent half an hour this morning running around staring at Chell’s toes as if the mod turned Valve’s puzzle-platformer into Kyphosis Simulator 2014.

I suppose technically the ‘main feature’ in the Thinking with Time Machine mod is a time machine which’ll have you creating time loops to solve puzzles with the aid of your past self, which is great and all but look, LEGS.
