On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison discuss another politician invoking video game violence due to the recent school shooting in Florida. They discuss why the Kentucky Governor is wrong. What some of the real problems actually are, and is there a time where we do need to be weary of what children are playing?
Then, the guys discuss the games they are playing. Marc goes into his thoughts on Battle Chef Brigade. While Sean talks a little more about Crossing Souls.
After that, it is the news. Spyro may be getting his own trilogy remaster soon. The Call of Duty movie has a director. And do they even consider it a video game movie?
