Rather Be Playing 4: Big Box of Fun

We all played the same game! We deconstruct Firewatch with a deep spoilery discussion. Since it’s a relatively recent game, we moved it to the last part of the episode to make spoilers easily avoidable. Not to spoiler the spoiler warning, but we all liked it! So much so that we would like to have…
