Couch Podtatoes Episode 9: Talking Points

CP4

This week we threw together a bunch of different articles and then talked about them. This was just the way it worked out, since a lot of the points were cool topics, but not enough to fill up a whole show, so I thought we’d just talk about a variety of things. Topics range from Gamescom and SOE live, to Blaugust posts with interesting ideas, to another Ubisoft employee sounding like a jackass. I won’t spoil anything here. Listen below!
