With Episode 150, we’re officially half way to 300, or just 50 away from 200. It’s nice to have goals isn’t it?

Super thrilled to have all the co-hosts back this week. We discuss topics such as the new, freshly announced Nvidia 1070/1080 cards, Battlefield 1, Uncharted 4, Call of Duty going to Space, Respawn’s Star Wars game, and more.

Games we’ve been playing are Alienation, Overwatch, Battleborn, Fallout 4, Pokken, and others as well.

Our guest interview is with Bill Gardner of The Deep End Games, who previously spent 12 years working at Irrational Games on titles like the Bioshock franchise. He and his team are currently working on Perception, which is a narrative horror adventure. You can read more about Perception at: http://www.thedeependgames.com/
