Tom F, Chris and Graham discard the benches in the ravine, board the infinity mega shuttle, and discuss Infinifactory’s strange creativity and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes’ straight stealth and foil story.

Also discussed: the first-person shooter bosses we think worked; whether we’d rather Jeff Bridges, Martin Sheen or a dog were our dad; one (1) gay; why the word ‘selfie’ makes us angry when the concept doesn’t; whether cross-platform play matters in our lives; and how New York needs to differentiate itself from the New York in videogames.

And introducing… a creaking chair.

Our intro music is by The Mandibles from their track Clambake. Many of the band members now tour as Count Bobo And The Bullion.
