Episode Notes

On this week’s show, Jonathan reviews some recent movies in Oliver Stone’s Snowden and Clint Eastwood’s Sully – both excellent, if very different, takes on modern real-world subjects – while Sean dives into gaming’s past to recount his recent experience playing the Dreamcast classic Shenmue in its original Japanese. Jonathan offers his final, complicated thoughts on ReCore for the Xbox One, as well as an initial impression of the new indie game Virginia (more on that next week!). And finally, after going through some stray bits of news, Sean and Jonathan offer impressions on Destiny: Rise of Iron, the latest expansion for the shared-world shooter that just keeps getting better and better.
