Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, Richard Rosenbaum, and Matthew Wrather are joined by special guest Zack Johnson of Asymmetric, whose new game, West of Loathing, is a comic single-player RPG set in the Old West. Appropriately enough, the panel examines another travesty of the Old West, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, which stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. The movie is not good, but the conversation is!
