I’m surprised Abby and Alex’s parents and grandparents even know how to check their emails. My parents can’t. My grandparents are all dead, but they never had to use the internet.

That intro 100% so badly wants to be the Halt and Catch Fire intro but it's not even close to that good.

Blowfish is a typically 64 bit symmetric key block cipher which are thousands of times faster than public key ciphers, however TwoFish uses 128 bit keys and is more secure. AES is still the standard though.

@robertforster: Never thought I'd get in a crypto discussion on Giant Bomb, but just to clarify Blowfish has a block size of 64 bits not a key size of 64 bits. Blowfish has a variable key length.

In-game influencer "Rex" has a great music video on the game's YouTube page.

This is well put together. It really doesn't interest me outright, except that draws me in. Get a kick out of the detective, he looks like he has bathed in alcohol all his life.

My Father would not consider getting a computer while he was alive, and a good bit of it was probably for the right reasons. Didn't stop him from him lecturing about always having a printer (give me a hard copy...) He really enjoyed the e-mail I brought him one day concerning a Nigerian prince and the transference of 10,000,00 dollars....

I dont see why Alex doesn't understand Influencer collectives - they totally sprang up around Twitch and Youtubers in the last decade

Rex is Irish, that's just an Irish accent! He is hamming it up a bit and adding a tinge of America though.

@stegosaurus: That’s right. Blowfish is getting old too. Twofish should be used instead because it uses 128 bit blocks along with a 256 bit key In CBC mode.

Namaste friends! This looks kinda cool, I dig the humor more than the horror so far though. It seems like a kinda odd mix.

I got sad at the end of this video because I would love a full let’s play of this game. I’m not interested In playing horror games like this by myself, but something about watching streamers makes it okay for me, and I really enjoyed everyone reactions to this one in particular.

Got this and played it through in one sitting on IOS thanks to this QL. A really interersting puzzle/horror adventure game.

Only found out half of the clues in the end so I will do another playthrough with the detective tomorrow.

Of all the times where Vinny has acted in a morally reprehensible fashion, this is the one I have felt the most guilt about while laughing.

Totally made me buy this game. I'm playing it on my phone, and it's quite a good illusion. Feels like I'm on someone's phone. A bit.

My mom JUST figured out texting. My dad has never touched a computer in his life and his phone is not smart.

I'm sorry, but I have a real problem excepting a fake phone that makes so many noises. Noooo phone gives you feedback everytime you click somewhere. It reminds me of when shows have beeps to indicate someone hanging up. It's just not real.

Can't believe Vinny gave us all the green light to pretend to be a dead person to their friends as a goof. Truly shocking :)

This was great! Watching this led me to pick up the original on Xbox. Loving it so far, forcing breaks since I get the feeling it’s not super long. Hope they put this one on consoles as well.

Really hoping they'll consider doing a full playdate run through of this, or at the very least hit it up during Halloween for Six Crazy Frights.
