Our first ever game review on the podcast?, I think it might be, and you couldn’t ask for a much better game: The Last of Us: Part II. We (Lauren, Ben and I) all love the game, but we have a pretty fantastic discussion about what makes this game so special, while keeping realistic hype trains in check. That doesn’t mean we don’t praise it to high heaven, we do, but that’s because this is one of the greats. If you’ve played the game, take a listen, and see if you think the game is as nearly as flawless as we do.
