While waiting to record a segment with another guest who was late, we contacted THE STANELY PARABLE developer William Pugh and asked him for an on-the-spot interview which he kindly obliged us with! So we called him up in merry old England then and there!

Leading up to that Dutch Mogul and Jagger chat about Infamous:Second Son and its use of real places in their local Seattle! 

A non-standard episode, but very fun.

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!
