Gaming critic and editor Carli Velocci joins the crew this week, which thankfully now includes the newly recovered Ricardo Contreras. After talking through Carli’s journey in gaming media, we have another slew of bummer news stories in the video games industry, including layoffs at Telltale. In more positive developments, John Riccitiello has been booted from Unity and some developers at CD Projekt RED are trying to unionize. Elsewhere, Cado’s also been digging Cocoon, while Patrick’s not very high on the new Soulslike, Lords of the Fallen. Fortunately, Rob is extremely into Robocop: Rogue City, and Carli cannot stop playing The Mortuary Assistant.
