The WhaleCast Episode 13

WhaleCast LogoJon (SSMP) plays OlliOlli 2 and gets in touch with his teenage self before Eric tries to explain his issues with the media campaign after playing Battlefield: Hardline. They also get nostalgic about Tony Hawk: Pro Skater and argue about whether or not a developer has an obligation to be self-aware.

Special thanks to A&C Games for providing our review copy of Battlefield: Hardline.

And yes, there is some minor background noise near the end of the podcast. We apologize for the inconvenience.
