GameSpot’s Chris Watters joins us this week to help us talk about our five favorite Metroidvanias (or Castletroids, if you’re the type to worry about infringing on trademarks), but that’s the tip of the iceberg. Part 2 launches into a look at Ori and the Blind Forest and Hotline Miami 2, followed by cool things witnessed at GDC and PAX East, and your embarrassing convention stories (bolstered with a few more of our own, as well as a strangely impassioned argument over the correct orientation of ass gaskets).
Question of the Week
What would be your dream VR demo or experience?
