121: Takes to the Ocean

It’s a big one this week. Not only is it the final episode before our live show at EGX this coming Saturday, but a lot has happened since the last recording. Spider-Man’s mysterious backpacks? Solved. That Spider-Man proposal? Dealt with. The fact that Mat and James thought they were more important than David and Sean and could do whatever they liked and upload an episode of Interface on the TCGS feed and therefore disrespecting everyone associated with the show not to mention every single listener? Very much dealt with. So strap in and settle down to another episode of The Computer Game Show. Sean is also on the show.
