Starside Chat

We mainly talk about video games, but we also get sidetracked discussing movies, TV shows, and tech!

Starside Chat Episode 014 - Uncharted Fan Film, Destiny 2, Pokemon Go and Jurassic World Alive

July 19th, 2018

On this week's episode we talk some news including the No Man's Sky Update, the Uncharted fan film starring Nathan Fillion and our renewed interest in Pokemon Go.

We even get into Aaron's recent marathon of the Mission Impossible franchise in anticipation of Mission Impossible: Fallout! 

We also get sidetracked by our failed attempts to get back into Destiny 2, but one of us gives the new mobile AR game Jurassic World Alive a chance and explains the differences between it and Pokemon Go.
