Show notes:

Interview with Tameem Antoniades, creative chief at Ninja Theory and co-writer of DmC:

This is also the first game I’ve written, cast and directed myself. If i do my job right, you should be seeing a story of Dante that breaks the myth that all videogame stories are trite and will never stand up to the best that theatre and film have to offer.

    This has to be one of the best DmC podcasts I’ve ever heard. It was critical, but fair. Rock on!
