Tom Bissell defends ‘The Order: 1886.’ Really.

While JJ flees to Europe to escape his pursuers, Chris talks to Tom Bissell, who ends a two-year sabbatical from games criticism to defend the critically panned PlayStation 4 shooter “The Order: 1886.” Tom is a writer for games like “Uncharted 4,” “Battlefield: Hardline,” “The Vanishing of Ethan Carter,” and “Gears of War: Judgment,” and the author of “Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter.”
