On this episode, we talk about one of our favourite gaming themes… Dystopia! Dystopian worlds are essentially the opposite of a utopia, or the opposite of perfect. This means they are usually defined as scary or dark, or even post-apocalyptic, usually caused by a tragic event or a corrupt government that changes the world for the worst. There are many games that have this as a main theme, including Bioshock, Fallout, Deus Ex ad more – so join Luke, Tom, Ronnie and returning guest Eloise to discuss their favourites and talk about what makes these universes so alluring. Also this week, Tom gets angry about Mighty No. 9 and Luke returns to familiar territory with his review of Monster Hunter Generations. We also talk Tomb Raider’s 20th anniversary and get excited about a new character in Overwatch. Don’t miss any of the action! DystopiaMightyMonster
