I’m afraid that some times
you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win
’cause you’ll play against you. – Dr. Seuss
It’s all fun and games on this week’s show, as we tackle stories filled with war, poverty, time travel, and kidnapping. We kick off with our “What’s in the Box” segment featuring a review of French video game developer Dontnod Entertainment’s critically acclaimed Life is Strange. PopOptiq’s Games Editor, Mike Worby, joins us to explain how this somber, cinematic, story-driven experience is one of the year’s best, his high opinion shared and maybe even surpassed by Editor-in-Chief Ricky. If only there were happier choices… Of course, there are much worse games to play, and with that in mind, for the main event Patrick and Ricky discuss surviving The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, the latest and last entry in the film series based around the best-selling novels by Suzanne Collins. Studios have been in the habit of splitting up the final chapters of sagas for a while now, but this time they may have stretched the idea a bit too thin. Enjoy!
Please give us a rating on Itunes. It would be very much appreciated!
