The Last of Us and Theology

Deer Listeners! Join Logan and friend of the show, Collin, as they discuss one of the most beloved games of all time: The Last of Us. Before the game is discussed, the guys discuss their favorite JRPGs, how Star Ocean disappoints, Dark Souls 3,  Guardians of the Galaxy, loving people like Christ, and more. During The Last of Us discussion, we discuss themes of adoption, morality in a post-apocalyptic world, and the game's controversial, though authentic, ending, and if whether or not Naughty Dog will make a sequel.

Assemble, Deer Listeners!

Fun fact: Deer Avenger is a real video game but that's not what we're talking about this episode! Adam discusses his recent roadtrip and Logan shares his thoughts about his current season of gaming, or lack thereof. For the Topic of the Episode, Blizzard was recently approached by Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, about Symmetra's "Devi" skin in Overwatch and it's possible removal due to disrespect of the Hindu deity. The guys discuss if this is something we should support, our thoughts on a Jesus Christ costume, and our thoughts on deities in games in general.

Everything is better on Vita.

Pokemon GO has completely taken over the world. Is this part of Nintendo’s plans for world domination? We don’t know but it sure is fun! The guys discuss what it’s like to fall in and out of love with Pokemon GO, just like the rest of the world, but is there something more to this mobile game? We discuss the good and the bad about the game, as well as what we have been playing (besides Pokemon GO). Adam gives us his reaction to Playstation VR while Logan talks about getting back into some Xbox 360 gaming!
