This week Liore, Elly, and Aro talk about Overwatch mania, Marvel’s Civil War, and scary games. (And a lot more!)
Overwatch is out, and we’re not playing it! And while all three hosts are happy that people are enjoying themselves, we’re maybe a little surprised by the ferocity of the love. Liore complains that her Twitter feed is all “play of the game” screenshots, while narrative-loving Aro is confused about the lack of plot or characters. Unsurprisingly we’re all pretty skeptical about the Overwatch lockbox system, and we talk about just how much money one can spend on that kind of thing.
Aro and Elly have both been to see the latest movie in the Marvel pantheon, Civil War, and they very much enjoyed it. Stubborn Liore has not seen it yet, but she’s tempted by stories of Cap’n and Bucky making googly eyes at each other. Instead, Liore talks about seeing Deadpool a second time, and is surprised to hear that Aro and Elly are not fans. Can a movie lead be too much of an asshat to enjoy? And where is the line drawn for “too jerky to have fun”
Also, Elly really wants to talk about Uncharted 4 now! Aro talks about her roller coaster vacation! Liore is seeing weird movies at the Seattle International Film Festival! James Cameron should make VR games! (Wait, what?)
