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!
When you have a lot of stuff going on, what kind of games do you turn to? Paul and Kris manage to discuss Dragon’s Dogma, World of Warcraft and a handful of other titles before succumbing to the slog of family life and minor illness. But just when things are at their bleakest… a surprise call from Paul’s Dad sets things right. Well, not right, really. Just different. Things get rotated slightly.
You know the kind — free-to-play, but with a gambling, collect-em-all element that teases you with trading your real cash for in-game currency. Paul remembers David Bowie’s Omikron: The Nomad Soul, then tackles Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, and Kris distrusts all exploding party box visuals.
