i talk to the characters on Fall Out Bird like they can actually hear me like
"Patrick, I know you’re adorable with your little hat and glasses, but we have to beat my high score, okay buddy?"
"Pete, you can make it buddy! We can do this!"
"Andy, you’re doing a great job! OH! Sorry, that one was my bad."
"We’ve been through lagging and several faceplants into guitar heads/necks, but did it. We finally beat my friend’s high score."
