Listen to Justin Roiland’s “Logsworth” Burn to Death as Part of a ‘High On Life’ Screaming Yule Log
Poor, poor, poor Logsworth. All he wanted was to have not been burned alive for Christmas. But – ya know what they always say? Too bad and tough luck. Logsworth received the opposite for Christmas. He was burned to death while screaming. The celebratory Christmas Yule Log is part of a cross-promotion between Xbox Game Pass and Justin Roiland’s new game High on Life.
Logsworth burning to death is funny, and all and somehow gets funnier as it goes along. Hilarious because the log that is set ablaze for our entertainment screams and eventually passes out from the pain. Don’t worry though. If you wait a few minutes he wakes back up for a bit to scream a little more before passing out again.
The Rick and Morty creator’s new game has shot through the roof in terms of both Game Pass subscriber downloads as well as Steam sales for PC. All in all, the game is doing spectacularly well. I’m really happy that it is doing so well. It is total outside-the-box work. In the game, you play as a bounty hunter sent to take out an alien drug cartel.
High on Life is a surprisingly wonderful and well-rounded game. It plays like Doom meets Duke Nuke ‘Em and is packed with Roiland-styled humor. It also does well at being super creative with its humor. For example, the character creation/selection screen is done by way of your in-game sister’s cocaine mirror. The reflection you see with lines of coke slightly obscuring your view is where you select your character. Each time you change to another face, your sister is voicing her satisfaction with how good the cocaine is… so good that she is seeing her own brother’s face change. It is small things in that vein that really set the game apart from others.
The synopsis for High on Life goes like this:
From the mind of Justin Roiland comes High On Life. Humanity is discovered by an alien cartel, and it turns out we’re the strongest drug in the cosmos. It’s up to you and a group of charismatic, talking guns to take down the G3 alien drug cartel and save humanity.
Have you played High on Life yet? We would love to hear what you thought of the game. Also, don’t forget to check out Logsworth the Yule Log below. He died for your sins after all.
