This week! Not one but two special guests join us to talk about the games and news of the week - Greg Rice, producer at Double Fine Productions, and Kevin Larrabee of The Fitcast (and Back In My Play). Things we talk about: How Greg got into the industry, Double Fine’s Day of the Devs event, the perception of indie games in Sony/Microsoft’s free game lineups, Nintendo’s first mobile title Miitomo, Don Bluth’s Dragon’s Lair movie Kickstarter, and all the Sony announcements from Paris Games Week - Detroit, Dreams, Gran Turismo Sport, Driveclub Bikes, Matterfall, and more. Plus: Halo 5, Until Dawn, Undertale, N++, Persona 4 Golden, Persona 4 Dancing All Night, Guitar Hero Live, games on the 4th generation Apple TV and loads more. Join us, won’t you?
