In this show I talk with ‘Someguy’, a man on the periphery of the games industry.
We talk about how renting games affects the way one plays and think about them. We also touch on what developers think of the rental industry. At the start of the show we have mini-reviews of Tiger Woods 09 and Dark Sector for the 360.
We also discuss games’ difficulty, Gary Glitter’s dress sense, gold farming and more.
There’s some swearing in this episode. Music is ‘Field of Grass’ by Mountain Mirrors.
