Finding Weezer's 'Across the Sea' in Firewatch

New Firewatch trailer hints at something dark

Campo Santo's Firewatch enjoyed a short fraction of Sony's E3 press conference tonight, but it was a good little video. It starts with high spirits, two voices joking around with one another, one guy playing with a turtle just for kicks, t...
