It’s our centennialest episode yet! Paul and Kris discuss Prey and games that did it a little better, plus is it possible to mod a game narratively and still be playing the same game?

We couldn’t have gotten this far without all of you! Thanks for listening to 100 of these, and here’s to 100 more — as a treat, here’s something we mention at the end of the podcast that we’re hoping to have available at PAX Aus this year!
In what’s sure to remain a fresh reference, Paul and Kris explore the intersection of survival horror, affluence, and Ja Rule on a private island once abandoned by Pablo Escobar — plus Kris takes a look at the Prey demo! And finally: what wild dogs may say about your civilization.
