RadioRadar+ Podcast 52: Mafia 3 makes us sweat, and we're all PSVR troopers

The Big Topic: Exploring the social politics of Mafia 3's version of the American South in the 1960s
Further Discussion: Diving deep into PSVR line-up
What we’re into: Gears of War 4 and River City: Tokyo Rumble

Hey, did you know video games are happening? Because we're officially in it right now. We open the show (after our obligatory slow jam), with an exploration of Mafia 3, and how it infuses the racial dynamics of 1960s America into its gameplay (when it's not bugging out). Also, the final major virtual reality platform is officially out this week, and Lucas regales us with his time diving into Sony's PSVR headset and launch line-up. Lastly, we briefly touch on Gears of War 4, as well as Anthony's recent obsession with the latest entry in the Kunio-Kun series, River City: Tokyo Rumble for the 3DS.
