After nine long years of development, Japan Studio finally released The Last Guardian this week. It was been the recipient of mixed reviews, ranging from perfect tens to shameful zeroes. But what do Scott and longtime Team Ico fan, Austin, think of the game? This week’s episode of The Gentleman’s Pantry features an extended discussion of the game’s mechanics, its shortcomings, what it does best, and why reviewer Austin Flynn is hesitant to even give it a score.
The Gentleman’s Pantry is recorded by JD Schmidt and Scott Russell in Alberta, Canada, and County Down, Northern Ireland. Special guest Austin Flynn joined us this week from Melbourne, Australia. Edited by JD Schmidt. Theme and background music created by JD Schmidt.
