This week's PWNCAST is all about story...well almost. First we chat a little bit about the Sony-Gaikai mashup, we discuss the implications of the recent EU court ruling on pre-owned games, and then we dive into a forty minute chinwag about some of favourite gaming plots, the joys of emergent narratives, and how games have evolved as a deep, personal storytelling medium over the years.
This podcast may also featured a van full of Scientologists.
