PCP: Overcooked

Fun Fridayz #21 – Fire and Friends

Overcooked, Overused, Underplayed

The short of itIt’s frustration with a smile, like an extended Mario Party minigame. 

So I was lucky enough to have a buddy come over for a day, meaning several drinks and video games were consumed. One of those was Overcooked, a coop cooking game where changing environments and a shrinking timer push you and your fellow cooks over the edge into full-blown screaming/laughing matches.

It’s pretty popular on YouTube. 

Beyond the fact that Let’s Play bait is getting to become an annoying subgenre of games nowadays, this seriously underplays the value of this game.

Sure, it’s fun watching your favorite ensemble shout at each other, but Overcooked is one of the few new games that wholeheartedly embraces local multiplayer. Stick this game in the oven with a few friends, and it’s guaranteed to be a lot tastier than Part 231 of a series that lasts exactly as long as the ad revenue does.
