Episode 15 -- Side Quests


First off, we delve into the future of the cast and some exciting teasers for future guests! Then we jump into the content, particularly the elements of appeal in side-quests, a brand of gaming that I and many others love for seemingly unclear reasons. I break down the ways that side-quests both reveal and ameliorate capitalist anxiety, if only for a moment or two.
