The gaming world is full of surprises, and oddness that we have to deal with. Reso talks about Press X to Jason’s joke about “Ethics in Journalism”, Star Control settles its suit in the most creative way, EA actually manages to eat its own foot, and Square Enix “Ethics Department”. We even talk about a shared favorite game “Disgaea 1” and look at Electronic Gaming Monthly Issue 2!
