Ep. 10: Discussing Our Dissertations


On this week’s show, we talk (maybe too long) about Sony and Microsoft’s recent financial reports, lament being too poor to “buy games when they’re new if you like them,” chat about what we’ve been playing (the Resident Evil Village Castle demo *drool*, Tender, Planet Zoo, Fallout: New Vegas), and we discuss each of our respective dissertations (see show notes for titles).
