On today’s episode, we ever-so-briefly discuss our spoiler-free impressions of The Witness, Ryan talks to Ubisoft Montreal about Far Cry Primal (okay, we couldn’t go a whole week without the Powerhouse), and top off the show with a meaty, 45-minute talk about Firewatch with the creative crew from Campo Santo.
