‘Prey,’ ‘Night in the Woods’ & More ‘Edith Finch’

Did the hourlong demo for “Prey,” Arkane’s highly referential immersive sim, sell us on playing the whole thing? Can JJ stomach the storyline in “Night in the Woods?” Can Chris get a do-over to explain why he adores “What Remains of Edith Finch”?

We have a Patreon at www.patreon.com/shallweshow! We are eternally grateful to everyone who has made a pledge.

NEXT WEEK, WE HOPE:

“Prey”
