Ep 8 - Better Dead Than Red

In the eighth episode of the Long Live Play political thriller, hosts Khayl Adam and Govinda Whitehurst put the fear of God and democracy into the hearts of filthy red communists the world over with the power of their glorious capitalist video game takes.

Tencent is up to its usual nefarious tricks again, and EA is officially out of ideas and has decided to just say, fuck it, we're remaking Dead Space. Plus, HBO's The Last of Us TV show has a ludicrous budget, the PlayStation Vita lies in a shallow grave, and Activision Blizzard is actually the worst (place to work).

Our heroes cover all the news (that they care about) and discuss in-depth the games they are playing (Don't Starve Together, Divinity: Original Sin 2).

The Featured Article of the Week was written by Maeve Allsup for Bloomberg Law.
