A sprawling conversation erupts over The Rise of the Tomb Raider and the previous game in the series, plus World of Warcraft and expectations of immersion from game enthusiasts of varying stripes. Plus some PAX South talk, plans for future conventions, and cookin’ with substitute fantasy meats.
Paul gets into Jonathan Blow’s The Witness, and when Kris breaks down the character-driven indie horror Oxenfree, they explore artifacts from our collective consciousness — how do nostalgic visuals scare us? Then Paul talks to Gavin Free of Rooster Teeth about their new movie Lazer Team and jet lag coping techniques — also an ending to Fallout 4 spoiler! You have been warned!
Plus! PAX South is this weekend in San Antonio — here’s where to find Kris all weekend long!
