We re-live our 40oz to Freedom episode due to a technical problem. After some reminiscing and speculating about Splinter Cell, Eric shares his experience with Saint's Row IV.
Then in news, we discuss yet another Xbox One policy 180, and consider what potential ramifications these changes could have so close to launch.
Closing out the show we go over the newly announced Call of Duty: Ghosts features, which strangely don't look like they're so new.

First half of the podcast, Pete goes into detail about his recent attendance at the biggest fighting game event of the year, the Evolution Championship Series in Las Vegas. In addition to describing what makes it unique, he gives a firsthand account of the widely reported negative reaction to the Killer Instinct exhibition. As well he gives his thoughts on two of the showcased indie games, Towerfall and Divekick.
Eric describes his experience with the horror anthology like Walking Dead: 400 Days. Clearly more than a stop gap between the highly acclaimed Season One and the anticipated Telltale Games sequel, we explore it spoiler free.
In news, we briefly touch on the Windows 8 exclusive Halo universe game Spartan Assault, more about what it means in the bigger picture since we hadn't played it at the time of recording. We also have a conversation about some news making, non-news items with Xbox One games being playable before installation completes, and Microsoft teasing their indie game plans for the Next Generation (Note: Peter at the time of recording failed to remember the name of the Capybara Games Xbox One exclusive, for the record it's "Below").
To end things, we pay a brief tribute to the passing of Giantbomb.com Ringmaster Ryan Davis, as he and the Bombcast have been a great influence on the show's existence. We were going to post the link for the re-issued "Fuck Ryan Davis" t-shirt, used to raise funds for his wife, but it appears that official campaign has been put on hold for now.
