Out of Continues Ep 48: Aesthetics of Play

This week, I’m joined by Ali.  We talk about The Unfinished Swan, Frobisher Says! and Sleeping Dogs.  Next, we have a discussion inspired by an episode of Extra Credits, about genres being defined by the aesthetics of play.  Followed up is news on Russian Piracy, Portal 2: Designed for Danger, Cliff Bleszinski and Resident Evil 6, GTA V, and finally listener feedback on Star Wars.
