Everyone on the panel has finished A Way Out so it's time for some final thoughts on the game overall before we dive into a spoiler-rich discussion of the last act and different endings. The gang also digs into the Fortnite phenomenon, as Patrick unpacks the degree to which the game has taken over teenage and young adult culture. Speaking of feeling out of touch with the culture, why do streamers keep using that slur? Judging from the quality of the almost-daily public apologies we're getting, a lot of them still seem shaky on why they shouldn't.
Heads up: We get into spoiler territory from around 20:35 until 36:00.
Additional show notes: Here's Patrick's piece on Fortnite's tremendous popularity in schools, and here's the Twitter thread Austin mentioned about how the FGC took steps to reform some attitudes and behaviors.
