Use Your Words takes the delicate art of being funny and makes it available to everyone. The new party game for the PS4 allows players to use their phone or tablet to type a creative headline for a picture or add a line of dialogue to a film. Others players vote for the one they think is best, and you are on your way to winning.
Since you are entering it on your phone, the game allows you to be a little risque or as filthy as a late night booty call text. If you want to keep it a little more sanitized, there is a family mode that makes the game appropriate for all ages.
Having trouble coming up with comedy gold? You can use the House Decoy option. This puts a pre-written response from the game as your response. You only receive half the points, but it keeps the game moving.
The good part about this game is that most people will already have their controller with them in a phone or tablet. Unlike the random draw of Cards Against Humanity, the amount of fun will depend on who you have in your living room. It could give the Jackbox games a run for their money.
Use Your Words will release in Spring 2017.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
