The 4th and final Mafia 3 video features lead writer Bill Harms, and we have a great time talking about narrative driving gameplay, relating to a character of color, and the difficulty of maintaining the virulent racism of the 60s in the game.
Shareef talks about Father James as the center of morality, segregation, drunk Irish stereotype, and the connection between McCall / Harris / Dupree case and modern times. What a game!
Shareef hops back on the 161 from Paterson, NJ to NYC to check out Tom Clancy's latest military shooter. He discusses default whiteness in character creators, a good way to handle homosexuality in games, and how Larae Barrett represents a POC role that is sorely needed in more video games.
Shareef wraps up his series on one of the best games of 2015. Did they go overboard with the main villain? And why does Chloe and Max's friendship make everyone squee?
Shareef returns to Telltale's take on Weteros and shows how the women of GoT are all singing "we run things / things don't run we". The male protagonists prove to be overly hesitant, especially random Black dude in the background who says nothing!,
