Jon Irwin stops by to analyze the stories of some of E3's most interesting games! We talk about Death Stranding, ReCore, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and of course, We Happy Few. We also use the word "sausage" more than I anticipated and even touch on some serious topics such as mental health and consciousness/impact after death. 

Jon's pretty much the best guy ever, so please buy his book on Super Mario Bros. 2 !

Or at least click on his articles at the almighty Paste!

After doing those things, you should watch the trailers of the four games we discussed:

Death Stranding

ReCore

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

We Happy Few

I talked about it in episode zero, and now it's a reality: this week's episode with Karla Zimonja! Gone Home is the best game of the 2010s...or is it 201X's? Either way, Gone Home is incredible and can be played and enjoyed by anyone. AND...the PS4 version is free on PS Plus this month.

We talk about teaching, writing, BioShock 2 and Minerva's Den, Gone Home, movies, and a bunch of other things in what I'm going to go ahead and say is the best episode yet.

Enjoy!
