ARGcast #170: Looking Back at Jak and Daxter w/ Taylor Lyles

by ARGcast

Jak and Daxter superfan Taylor Lyles chats with us on what made the popular Naughty Dog franchise so beloved among PlayStation fans.

Let’s team up, ARGonauts! Taylor Lyles comes back on the show to gush about the Jak and Daxter franchise and explain to us what made those games so great. Learn how the storytelling in these games paved the way for Naughty Dog to move on to the more modern Uncharted and The Last of Us series.

The news this week covers Bethesda flubbing their classic Doom ports on the Nintendo Switch. That’s followed by the return of retro Star Wars titles, Street Fighter V adding some beloved characters, and Tencent investing into retro games.

The Stage of History warms up our main topic with Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and Daxter. Robert then brings up the ire of Tay with Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier during Obscura. Be sure to grab our game code giveaways, then run, run, run, and jump for another round of Random Select! Who could Robert be this time?
