We’re feeling a little sassy this week, as we talk about movies that, despite being good, aren’t allowed to be your favorites. Warning: There’s a fairly decent chance we’ll pick on your favorite movie — especially if your name is Rotten Tomatoes. But we’re not picking fights here; it’s all in good fun.
After the break, we don our proverbial wetsuits and splish splash into a conversation about underwater levels in video games. We have a wide array of opinions on such things, from the Rev’s unbridled hatred of water-themed platforming to Mandi’s fathomless love of deep-sea exploration. We talk about the games that got it wrong, games that got it right, and games that have very little to do with water at all. From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to BioShock, from Super Mario Bros. to Black Ops 3, from Polaris to fish possession in Dishonored, we’ve got a long list of games that allow you to wet yourself and sploosh around in some fun time.
And then there are the underwater edutainment games, like Odell Lake, which is clearly a hoot. Of course, no conversation about underwater games would be complete without at least one random factoid about Seaman.
So don’t be a landlubber; slurp down some whale sauce and join us for an oceanic adventure like none other.
