The Weekly Stuff #234 – God of War Discussion & Donkey Kong Country Retrospective

Episode Summary

We dive deep with the new God of War, look back on the history of Donkey Kong Country, and talk a whole lot of Norse Mythology in this week's episode.

Episode Notes

After giving general spoiler-free impressions last week, we dive deep with the new God of War, discussing the story, characters, themes, and gameplay in a wide-ranging discussion that reveals just how much this game has to offer, intellectually, emotionally, and as a major technical achievement. Jonathan also talks about his recent experiences playing through all of the Donkey Kong Country games, from the Super NES games by Rare to Retro Studio’s 2010 reboot, in anticipation of this week’s release of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Switch. Further adventures with the original Japanese version of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Sean’s deep dive into Norse mythology round out the episode.
