Episode three sees Craig and Pip indisposed, so guest stars Brendan Caldwell and Jordan Erica Webber join us. We talk bronies at Nine Worlds, moral choices in Spec Ops: The Line and Papers Please and ludo-narrative dissonance in Kirby's Dreamland. The question of the week is "What is the game that got you into gaming?" Brendan tells us he was already a critic at age two, Jordan talks growing up with co-op, Cara tells us about single life and Don't Take It Personally Babe and Tom tells us how Baldur's Gate 2 made him a better person.
