Things get weirder, the human anchor loosens, and, perhaps inevitably, familiarity with environments robs them of their tension. The game does a good job of habitually undermining any sense of comfort you may have, but as I progressed I could feel myself shifting gear, from tense exploration into survival game mode. I cared less about staring into every nook and cranny, or looking at every photo and scrap of paper, and more about getting through objectives. There are good ludonarrative reasons for this – if you’re in a rush to do something you’re hardly going to stop and sniff the environmental storytelling – but I did miss the pace of the beginning, and the richness of those early environments.

No one wants to be a Millennial, except for a few weird undergrads who write politically correct versions of dictionaries that offer simple alternative wordings for offensive phrases like "poor person" such as "person who lacks advantages that others have, low economic status related to a person's education, occupation and income." This, and a myriad of other reasons, is why Millennial became a dirty word like hipster. When I speak of Millennials, I mostly mean what the media portrays them as, Middle to Upper Class students and graduates of somewhat to highly prestigious universities and colleges. This infectious species that polices the appropriateness of Halloween costumes and takes off weeks from school to cope with the election of a person who doesn't share their values in "safe spaces" chockfull of art and dog therapy. Millennials are ill-equipped for the challenges of adult life.

The design couldnt be much simpler, with a single power button and some subtle raised contours to give a bit of grip. There’s just the one brush head in the box, plus a two-pin conduction charger. Additional brush heads are a little pricier than Oral-B brush heads, though, and currently they're retailing currently at £28 for eight at Amazon.
