People. People who need people. Are the luckiest people… Jon confronts Harold about how long it’s been since they last talk (which wasn’t that long ago). In this episode, the duo discusses single-player co-op campaign gameplay (Battlefield: Bad Company), digitized pen & paper mobile role playing (Knights of Pen & Paper), simplified input context and cognitive relevance (GIRP, QWOP, Heavy Rain), and typical gameplay tutorial conventions (Uncharted, Bulletstorm, DOTA 2)
