In the latest episode of Clueless Gamer, Conan faces off against his arch nemesis Will Arnett in a few rounds of ARMS on the Nintendo Switch. You'd think that a game that can be played entirely using motion controls would be a bit easier for noobs to come to grips with after a few rounds, but... Well, you'd be wrong. See the train-wreck for yourself above.
This was a tournament of fists and wits. Conan and Will were facing off to see who would dominate in ARMS, but they were also trading some sick verbal burns throughout the contest as well. There were some high stakes in this showdown. Whoever loses the tournament was charged with filming a video explaining why the other person is their hero.
What follows is almost ten minutes of hilarity. Conan and Will Arnett both can, at times, have rather abrasive comedic styles that some people love and some people hate, but seeing them here together is a real treat no matter what you're into. Will especially has some hilarious takes on the Canadian war of 1812 which, you'll of course remember, saw Canada utterly dominate the United States. Time for some payback (or is it?)
As for ARMS, you'll quickly see that this isn't merely a game for those who love to waggle. Conan sure loves to waggle, and it doesn't get him very far. This is a game that required strategy and careful execution, and you have to pick and choose when to throw out your arms. Neither player seems to be picking their shots with any rhyme or reason, but Will ends up playing more aggressively and taking the win.
