Free Play 82 | Quarantine is on the Horizon: Zero Dawn


About This Episode

Well, here we are.  The entire world in the midst of a global pandemic.  It is crazy, really.  We’ve all seen 100 post-apocalyptic movies and played through games like The Last of Us and Fallout more times than you could shake a radioactive stick at, but I’m not sure that anyone really ever thought we’d be here having to deal with something like this.  I hope you’re all stocked up on toilet paper and bottle caps because they are 100% the new currency.  All that being said, nerds are on the rise as the internet becomes everyone’s new place of refuge and that what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast!
