In this episode:
We talk about stacks at PAX Aus! Woo! We got to test the Oculus Rift, played some great local and international indie titles (Duet, Tasty Fish, Johann Sebastian Joust, Freedom Fall, and many others!), played some board games and cards games (like Lords of Waterdeep: Scoundrels of Skullport, String Railway, Story War and Magic- Huh? Never heard of it!) and listened to words of wisdom from the hosts.
Tune in for the most fun you can have listening to a Melbourne-based geek/pop culture podcast*!
