After the weighty review for The Last of Us Part II, Will and Drew take it easy this week and catch up with some of the nonsense going on in their lives. Will has been thoroughly enjoying his keyboard, while Drew has been fighting wasps and updating the Miniature Gamestop. Plus, Drew’s checked out Carrion, the PS5 will support some PS4 peripherals, and much more!
Warning: This episode contains extensive spoilers for The Last of Us 2.
It’s time to talk about The Last of Us Part II, in depth! Will and Drew are joined by long time friend and frequent WDGR guest Dave, aka @Epic_Outro! The three of them break the game down and dive into the story, how it made them feel, and what the experience was like. It’s a heavy conversation about a heavy game.
I’m not entirely sure if this qualifies as “Video Game Music,” but it’s one of my favorite music moments in a video game ever. In “The Last of Us 2,” Ellie and Dina find a music store, and Ellie picks up the guitar…
I hope this makes you feel things the way it made me feel things.
Will and Drew are continuing separate gaming adventures together – Will finally has his copy of Ghost of Tsushima, while Drew is still working his way through The Last of Us Part II. The two check in with their progress so far and provide updates.
Plus, a look into the Mailbag, and a chat about the recent changes to Xbox Live and available Xbox hardware.
#MusicMonday returns with Ghost Of Tsushima. The moment I heard this track for the first time, I knew I would fall in love with the soundtrack. It reminds me of The Last Samurai, one of my favorite movies. It encapsulates feudal Japan, and the beauty Tsushima offers. I hope this track moves you to blubbering like a baby like it did to me.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Will has beaten Final Fantasy VII Remake, and has quite a bit to say about it. And while Drew hasn’t played the game past the demo, he has a lot of questions. How does it compare to the original? Did Square create a masterpiece?
Plus, we hit the mailbag and follow up on last week’s question regarding co-op gaming.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for The Last of Us: Left Behind.
Last week, Will and Drew didn’t have enough time to chat about The Last of Us: Left Behind, so they dive into some of their favorite moments from the short DLC. Plus, Will provides an update on Final Fantasy VII Remake, Drew reveals a new toy, and the two discuss their hopes for the upcoming Xbox Series X Gaming Event
#MusicMonday returns with Assassin’s Creed 3. “Modern Assassin” is no slouch in the soundtrack department for the AC series, as I’d argue that the AC3 soundtrack is one of the best. Cascading drums and soaring strings is what you’ll find here, thanks to Lorne’s ability to capture to action and essence of the American Revolution.
