Chris, Tom and Tom discuss Artifact, the Dota 2 International, Hellblade, Shadow Tactics, The Shrouded Isle, Lawbreakers and more.
Please note: we discuss the recent Hellblade debate, including some mechanical spoilers, from around the 28 minute mark to the 49 minute mark. After that, there’s a less-potentially-spoilery chat about the game itself.
- Here’s the announcement trailer for Artifact.
- …and this is the reaction it got. Contrast with this trailer for a patch number from last year.
- Here’s the other side of Valve, as represented by the International 2017 intro.
- Ninja Theory’s Hellblade has much to recommend it, including a brave willingness to play with your expectations.
- ‘neil degrasse tyson watches a movie’ by ProZD.
