Thanks to Chris for editing these episodes while Josh was recovering from… whatever.
Also, that thing that Rutskarn does at the start of the episode where he narrates generic cop-man thoughts? I’m pretty sure there’s no upper limit to how much of that I could listen to.
The story in this game is so hilariously at odds with the gameplay that I’m actually angry at them for playing it this straight. Even if the player arrested every possible suspect and only shot when they really needed to, the scene would still end with an explosive chase scene. It’s just absurd to have Dawes show up at the very end of that chase and complain that the suspect’s face was bruised. We’re supposed to be worried about Kai, but there’s no way she could possibly be responsible for as much damage as the player.
So Officer Mendoza… I see here on your report that you – and stop me if I’m reading this wrong – gunned down 12 men and did tens of thousands of dollars of damage to a hotel lobby. Then you took an automatic weapon from the crime scene and used it to kill another half dozen men in a public place. After which you stole a civilian vehicle and initiated a chase which caused five explosions, the death of ten more people, and the destruction of untold city property, including a construction trailer. Also you allege that Officer Kai punched a suspect and hit him with a lightweight wastepaper basket? Based on your report, we’re giving her a two day paid suspension, and you’re sentenced to fifty years in the electric chair.

I was trying to make fun of how Silent Hill had lost its way but I ended up making fun of fighting games. Whatever.
The Terrible New Thing
Fidget spinners are ruining education! We need to... oh, never mind the fad is over. This is not the first time we've had a dumb moral panic.
The Opportunity Crunch
No, brutal, soul-sucking, marriage-destroying crunch mode in game development isn't a privilege or an opportunity. It's idiocy.
Batman v. Superman Wasn't All Bad
It's not a good movie, but it was made with good intentions and if you look closely you can find a few interesting ideas.
