ARGcast Mini #9: Video Game Movies with Luke Owen

by ARGcast

Join us with special guest and Lights, Camera, Game Over! author Luke Owen as we discuss his released book and the history of video game movies!

For us, it was Tuesday! Book author Luke Owen joins us for a special ARGcast Mini episode to chat about his newly released publication Lights, Camera, Game Over!: How Video Game Movies Get Made. The book is great, but in all honesty it gives us a great excuse to geek out over our favorite big screen films based on video games and gaming culture.
