Marsh and Chris are joined by special guest Pip Warr to discuss Steam’s winter sale, ongoing troubles in the land of Early Access, Massive Chalice, Minecraft art games, Smite and more. Enhanced, as ever, by the timeless wisdom of Literal Chris Pratt.

Also discussed: eugenics, getting futurist art so wrong it makes Pip cry, human emotions that can and cannot be explored from a minecart, 2014 in videogames, Elite: Dangerous’ online-only woes, and the Jurassic Park theme. We are sorry about the Jurassic Park theme. We are not sorry.
