Thursday Throne - Psychonauts - Session 1
The Human Mind — six hundred miles of synaptic fiber, five and a half ounces of cranial fluid, fifteen hundred grams of complex neural matter...a three-pound pile of dreams. But I'll tell you what it really is: the ultimate battlefield, and the ultimate weapon.
Their first game as an independent studio, Psychonauts set the standard for what could be expected out of Double Fine Productions: colorful characters, clever writing, and solid (if imperfect) gameplay.
The collect-a-thon genre is often criticized for being too samey — find all the items in an area, then proceed to the next. Monotony is certainly a pitfall that would be easy to fall into. But Psychonauts takes this formula and plays it over a wide variety of engaging and carefully-crafted levels that are a joy to explore.
Tune in tonight at 9pm ET as we begin Psychonauts!
