This week is a more loosey-goosey episode as we cave in and do what we have avoided for awhile as a game podcast cliche: "Whatchya been playin?"

This leads into talk of sense of place in the ASSASSIN'S CREED series, and our experiences in the Seattle of inFAMOUS: SECOND SON, which leads into Corey talking about his newly open life as a cross-dresser

Then we speak with Jake Lewandowski of Team2Bit about his upcoming Ouya Exclusive: Reagan Gorbachev. We also discuss the state of the Ouya!

The creators of GENDER BENDER DNA TWISTER EXTREME are on the show: David Kerr and Lachlan Snell!

Wildly successful on Indiegogo, the game is a whimsical fantasy of guys turning into hot girls (and more). Some think the handling of the transgender subject could be offensive. We discuss this at great depth with a cast that spans the LGBT spectrum. 

Find the game on Steam Greenlight, or on Desura.com.
