Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is one of the oldest topics on this podcast – we reviewed the original PS3 game, when it was brand new, 10 years and over 400 episodes ago, and have followed the series ever since – so it’s probably inevitable we’d cover HBO’s 9-episode TV adaptation starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey. What’s not inevitable is what a wonderful show this turned out to be, respecting but also expanding upon the source material to tell the story in a way that stands tall all on its own. It’s inarguably the best live-action adaptation of a video game to date – not that the competition is particularly thick – and feels like a real inflection point in Hollywood finally taking the medium seriously. We also discuss the recent games we’ve been playing, including Like a Dragon Ishin and Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe, and head on over to Sean’s Beta Corner for a look at the Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo!
