Astounding plot revelations abound in the second half of Binary Domain, raising fascinating questions about transhumanism and what makes a robot a robot. In the course of their discussion, Jens makes an impassioned case to Randy for Binary Domain being counted among similar great works of science fiction such as Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell.
Caveat: in the process, Jens ends up SPOILING Blade Runner 2049 so if, like Randy, you haven’t seen it yet, we implore you to do so after finishing Binary Domain, but before listening to this podcast episode.
Jens also finished and discusses Yakuza: Like a Dragon (not to be confused with the Miike film of the same name) and Randy gives his closing thoughts on Bugsnax.
