Chris and Katie are back at it with their retro video gaming nostalgia, this time with a classic PlayStation 2 platformer, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy!

The first installment of one of Katie’s favorite trilogies of all time, this 2001 Naughty Dog-developed title has everything you’d want in a platformer.  Running and jumping, punching and shooting, fire and ice levels… and a healthy amount of falling into pits and dying and blaming the terrible camera angles.  If we didn’t know better, we’d think the game was called “I swear I hit the jump button!” based on watching Chris and Katie play on Twitch.

Take a listen as our hosts dive into their memories of the game, their thoughts after playing through it again, and a breakdown of this week’s video gaming “trope of the day”, which just might be relevant to Jak and Daxter…

Let’s talk games!
