late to the party but just watched the first episode and thought it was great. i enjoy the balance you strike between like, “hey this is an interesting way to think about this stuff,” but also a skepticism of how intentional some of the art direction is wrt conveying meaning about lordran. the knight’s family saying lol
i mentioned it to my spouse, also a social science person, and now they want me to wait to watch the others so that we can do it together so gonna do that
also just as someone who has wached dozens of hours of playthroughs of this dumbass game, you have a knack for the casual funny commentary and a nice voice to listen to so keep it up!!
also i think it was posted by @Video Game King at one point but there’s some website with an in-browser app where you can just zoom around video game spaces with the camera? i used it for FFX Calm Lands but I believe some Dark Souls levels were on there too, could be useful
