We have friends of the show Lynnea and Russell on to discuss the emerging genre of story-driven games.  Specifically: Game of Thrones, Life is Strange and Tales From the Borderlands.  The discussion is formatted to be spoiler-free in the first half of the show, then fifteen minutes of spoiler ridden discussion of each game.  Listen for the spoiler warnings if you are planning on playing these games :)
