Playing to the Crowd and Playing for Power in 'King of the Castle'

Crusader Kings meets '1 vs. 100' proves to be a better crossover than the IOC meets video games.

With Rob still out, Patrick and Ren discuss the latest episode of The Last of Us, and whether the level-like structure of the adaptation, nearing its finale, is causing problems. Elsewhere, Cado's played King of the Castle, a new party game that pits your friends against each other for some goofy Game of Thrones-style machinations, and Ren explains a very weird Olympics “esports” situation. Before a big dip into The Question Bucket, Patrick and Cado briefly swing back into the later half of Destiny 2's newest expansion, Lightfall.
