Episode 972: Har-Pwned

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Buttons are good. Buttons are lots of fun.

Especially the types with cryptic or even no labels at all, that are presented to player characters when they are locked in a room with water rising rapidly and spikes descending from the ceiling.

And then there's the type that are on the control panels of a foreign or alien vehicle when the PCs jump in and hope for a quick getaway from the hordes of hostiles chasing them.

Or the sort that simply says, "Don't press".

Oh yes. Buttons are excellent.
