Came home from work to find Nick still here with Jerry after kung fu, so we played some multi-player X-Men (gamecube).

This was a lot of fun. Superhero games are already fun, and everybody likes the X-men. I was playing Jean Grey, Jerry had Rogue, and Nick had Iceman.

Our heroes, however, were decidedly NOT a model of cooperative teamwork.

Jean Grey threw a snowmobile at Rogue's head using telekinesis.

It was an accident, I swear! I didn't even know I'd done it! After that point, Rogue kept throwing environment at Jean, and yelling "Rogue smash!" because I guess she got confused with the Hulk. That, or "die, bitch!"

Oh, and since we had two redheads on the screen, there were many cries of "Stop looking like me, dammit!" when one of us (usually me) would get confused about who was controlling who.

It was a blast. We clearly need to have an X-men party so we can use all four controllers.
