AR Podcast #17: Return of the Living Rezzed

 

New Record!

The second part of our EGX Rezzed podcast has arrived… after E3. Evidently we are not as efficient as we would like.

This is the sad result of a spectacular miscommunication in which three of us failed to realise that no one was working on the timeline or the games mentioned, even though the audio was edited and ready to rock.

Still, here it is, finally. Apologies for the clicking sounds, beer can opening, yawning and recorder bashing. To be fair, if you’ve listened to our podcast before you’re probably used to all this.

Steel yourself, body and soul, for highs (soundtracks, of all things), lows (Enola) and plenty of drunkenness.
