Cat Context 109: Escapism with Post-Apocalyptic Stories

The news has been kind of a bummer lately, so Liore, Arolaide, and Ellyndrial have been enjoying some games, movies, and television to escape for a bit. But why is everything they’re enjoying post-apocalyptic…? Is it some kind of sign?

Aro has been preparing for wasteland home design by working on her settlement in Fallout 4. Elly is consoling himself by contemplating the grimdark future of Shadowrun, where people are elves and computers are trying to kill us (and also have overly complicated rulesets). Liore has turned to space, in the form of sci-fi show The Expanse, and finds solace from unpleasant current events by watching people get chased by demonic hillbillies in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

Also, we talk about movies for kids that made us cry forever! And debate which classic piece of dystopian literature best represents our current times! Also, Aro has a weird problem with watching childhood stars who are all grown up, so we make fun of her for it. You know, the usual.
