Episode 234 – The Good and The Bad of God of War Ragnarok

God of War Ragnarok is a meaty game. To help us discuss the themes, we brought on a friend and Patron of the show: Nate McKeever (Backlog Breakdown).

Before we get into the show, the preshow sees us discussing the recent news surrounding Xbox’s layoffs and wondering just what is going on over there. The show properly sees us hinting at future content (including a new podcast) along with discussing the theme of obsession and parenthood as it relates to the characters in God of War Ragnarok. Buckle up. This is a long but rock-solid episode.
