Oh, the world of timed puzzle games, how I missed thee. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is an awesome party game designed to test your skills, memory, teamwork and ability to do repetitive tasks. The game puts a single player in a room with a bomb in what appears to be a police testing facility, while the rest of the players involved are not allowed to look at the screen and are instead given instructions and diagrams on how to deactivate the various challenges without blowing up the bomb. You’ve got wires, wordplay, memory games, Morse code, number challenges and other complex displays that will test your patience and make everyone scream in frustration when even the slightest mistake occurs. The game has an option for the Oculus Rift, but it really isn’t necessary unless you’re one of those VR fiends who needs to experience life as if you’re really inside the room and your friends in the bomb squad are the only ones who can save your life. I highly recommend this as a party game for at least four people. You can accomplish it with two, but the interaction is what’s key to having a fun game. –Gavin Sheehan
