The Lost Lighthouse: The Weekly Rapture 65 – Horses are Bull***t (E3 Special!)

Welcome back to The Weekly Rapture, brought to you by The Lost Lighthouse.

This week we had two main talking points. For the first, Gary and Adam each talk about the three games that looked the most interesting to them from this year’s E3. Gary picked Mass Effect: AndromedaWe Happy Few and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, while Adam chose Horizon: Zero DawnResident Evil 7 and Death Stranding.

Then Adam chatted about Warcraft: The Beginning with Ian and Stuart (the DM and Vin Johnson from our D&D podcast Total Reroll). We talked through what we thought worked, what didn’t, and whether it was the first non-terrible video game film. There may be minor spoilers, but shouldn’t be particularly heavy!
