Episode 3 is up!

Episode 3 of Pixels and Poutine, featuring game designer Osama Dorias, is now online!  You can download it here.  (I’m having trouble with the RSS feed, it will be updated as soon as RSSpect comes back online.)

Fashionably Late

Instead of releasing Episode 3 on Tuesday or Wednesday, and then being rushed to release another episode 4 days later, I’m just going to hold it until Sunday.  You understand, right?

It’s going to be a great one, though.  Osama Dorias is a great guy who is very well-spoken and passionate about game design.  Tonight I also recorded Episode 4, the Q.A. Roundtable episode, and it turned out great as well!  Good stuff coming for Pixels & Poutine!
