PYP 38: Central Characters

Mike, aka Scarfinger, and Henry, aka KnoxBroadcast, join Ace and Blue to discuss the gaming/enthusiast media and out two most anticipated games of 2014.  Henry and Blue debate the need for games to revolve around a central character.  It’s a solid debate that needs your feedback.  We also read feedback from last week’s show and the PC game specs question posted on Twitter.

In addition, there are over 20 minutes of Out-of-Order contemptible comments so please enjoy the discussion.  The amount of content in this show should make up for the long absence.  Thank you for listening and enjoy PYP 38.  Stay open.
