As lovers of video games, we’ve handled our fair share of apocalypses – cities, worlds, even galaxies have been destroyed and we’ve barely blinked. Apocalypses are huge. People are small. And The Division‘s Agent Origins live action miniseries brings an apocalypse we have seen so many times before down to a human level – emphasizing the horror society falling would have on ordinary people. The four films run to twenty minutes in total (if you search around YouTube you’ll find a super cut of all four films together, but we have linked to the official individual Ubisoft playlist below). The Division … Read More »
