Welcome to the second episode of PixlTalk Crew 2! Jason (of PB & Jason fame) sits in with the traditional trio of Julian, Rob, and Patrick. We discuss the maturing of story in video games, starting with the intriguing target footage of Rainbow Six: Patriots. That leads us into some debate over the merit of the Call of Duty series before things get really heated over Heavy Rain. Then we put on our silk robes and crank some Barry White as we discuss romance in games, with a focus on Half Life, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and...Zelda. Wait, what? We have a lot more to say about story in games, and we'll come back to this in the future. But come back for episode 50, where we talk about our old man rants about the golden age of gaming. Be sure to give us your old man rants in the comments so we can read them on the air. -Excelsior!
