Play This! Podcast: You should play... but she definitely dies

Play This! Podcast

It's episode two of Play This!, and we already have the legendary Dan Hsu from GamesBeat in the studio. Just like Jason, he's working his way through Avatar: The Last Airbender on Netflix. Who cares if it's a kid's show from more than five years ago? It's awesome. He's also got a great tip on a fantastic chiptunes artist for you. Carlos found a website that is trying to preserve all the old sounds from our youth that are fading away. Alex discovered the excelled Charlie Kaufman film Adaptation from a decade ago, also available on Netflix. And again, we all talk a bit about how fantastic The Walking Dead game is. If you want something new to watch, listen to, or play, you gotta give this show a listen.
