Staring at Screens episode 24: The Plot Thickens
This week, in addition to their usual rundown of the new games they've been playing, the SAS crew tackle the topic of storytelling in games, and as a member of the classic adventure gaming old guard, I am chomping at the bit to get started with this episode! Fair warning, though. Spoilage may happen:
SPOILER ALERT: Along the way we also reference (and possibly spoil) plot elements of several games including the Saints Row series, GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption, Heavy Rain, the Mass Effect series, Fallout 3, Mafia II, Assassins Creed 2, L.A. Noire, and Halo 4.
Remember: forewarned is fore-tified against the sudden ruination of clever plot twists! My high school classmate spoiled Sixth Sense for me and I've been messed up ever since.
