This week, Max, Marty, and Brian are joined by Walt Williams, the writer of Spec-Ops: The Line, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Significant Zero, a "book" about what it's like to make video games. (A book is sort of like a video game, but much quieter, and made of old trees.)

MAJOR SPOILER WARNING: If you haven't finished Spec-Ops: The Line, The Last of Us, or Mass Effect 3 you might want to skip this one. Or, just bite the bullet and hear a really great in-depth discussion about storytelling in games.
