Sometimes the day of fancy dinners, red roses, and chocolate binges just isn’t what you or they are into. Who knows, maybe you’re looking for the perfect game for both of you to be competitive or cooperative. Want to kick each other’s butt, win and lose together, maybe have some feisty good plays?

Here are some games you should try and play with your babe:

BattleBlock Theater

This cooperative platformer manages to combine adorable and gruesome at the same time. Believe me, when you first find the cute rounded minimalistic art design, you’ll probably make the mistake of thinking it’s easy to get around. Play here.

Overcooked

Overcooked will make it necessary to yell at each other — which doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You work together as a team to prep, cook, and serve. It’s the perfect game to play to break the ice, work together, laugh, and panic. Play here.

Broforce

Another fun co-op platformer on the list that’ll bring unlockable comical familiar characters from iconic movies. This game can be summarized with a single word: explosions. You’ll have fun getting through stages together and laughing at the game’s self-award absurdity. Play here.

Samurai Gunn

It’s morbidly ironic to find Samurais with guns but with this game, you get to play against each other with limited amount of bullets and a katana. If you run out of bullets, you can swing your katana just in time to return one aimed at you. Play here.

Spaceteam

This is another game perfect for screaming at each other — this time, a game you can enjoy on your phone or tablet. Get to know each other with this local cooperative game where you work together to save your spaceship from crashing. Play here: iOS, Android

Don’t Starve Together

If you were the type of person who played Minecraft for the survival bits of it, this is the perfect game to play with your Valentine. This game will force you to work together to survive and explore the wilderness. Play here.

Tekken 7

Want to just beat the crap out of each other in a fighting game? Some people can be into that. Don’t worry about winning as much, you both can button-smash just for laughs. Maybe you can learn combos and mix-ups together. Play here.

Nidhogg

It’s a simple and fun game where you try and kill each other to get to the opposite side only to be the Wurm’s chosen meal. Compete against each other and see who can get to the other side at whatever cost. Play here.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

If you still haven’t had enough cooperative games, this is the one you need to have: a game with a ticking time bomb, literally. If you both are up for a challenge or just willing to laugh off a thrilling loss, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a must-have of a game. Play here.

Vainglory

Didn’t expect a mobile multiplayer online battle arena on this list? Neither did I. This is not to say Vainglory is the best MOBA out there. Play whichever ones you both enjoy! Play here: iOS, Android.

Starwhal

Starwhal lets you win by piercing your enemies beating heart. If that doesn’t scream Valentine’s worth-it, I don’t know what will. You get to customize your narwhal with whatever call and personalize it with hats and other accessories. The game is charmingly simple and a whole lot of fun. Play here.

Just how much time do you spend stalking on Instagram? You may not know the answer now, but Instagram knows. And pretty soon, you’ll be able to check.

According to TechCrunch, code hidden on the Instagram app showed a “time spent” feature under “Usage Insights.”

It’s still unclear how the function would work. When it was discovered, it was also unclear whether Instagram was testing out the option for eventual rollout, until Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom had this to say:

As of now, there’s still no news on when “time spent” would roll out, but the move is unsurprising. Tech companies are now moving towards features that allow users to monitor usage time and statistics. Earlier this month, Google announced similar functions on digital well-being for Android P that includes a dashboard that will give you information on your phone usage.
