This week on the DigitallyDownloaded.net podcast, we look at the latest game to have fallen victim to Australian censorship, Outlast 2.
Then we look at eroticism in film, as the Korean film The Handmaiden, makes a big splash in arthouse cinema circles, and how that approach to filmmaking might apply to games (if it can be done).
In a three-for-three with controversial subjects, we also look at whitewashing in film (specifically in the new Ghost in the Shell film), and consider whether games are doing a better job at combating this than film is.
As always you can catch us on our socials:
