Welcome back everyone! In the latest episode Garett and I are joined by Jonathan Metts as we talk about developers until we're super sweaty and can't stop screaming at everyone. Or maybe that was Steve Ballmer? I forget. Either way you should give it a listen as we talk about our favorite development studios as well as Call of Duty: World at War, and Saint's Row IV: Re-Elected.

For our latest episode we are joined by Myriam Feygin of Complex Infinity to talk about their new VR game S#arp Shooter! This episode runs quite long, but Myriam was gracious enough to share quite a bit of information with us about their game, including where it started and where they're going. I hope you'll all check it out and enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it. 

Not ones to disappoint, we were also sure to tell you all about what we've been playing, and of course, The Pitch. This episode's Pitch: "Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors".

A Thousand Words - The American Soldier 1863

Wow! 2016 has just eaten up the time of the hosts of A Thousand Words. We've been incredibly busy! Between Jessica's successes as a comedian, Ron's new baby girl (Mazel Tov!), and Stan being in a play, there hasn't been the time needed to record together. But, as you can see, we're still here! 

In this episode we discuss H. Jon Benjamin's The American Soldier 1863, where we discuss a Civil War Fashion Show! Additionally, we discuss the cinematic classic Major Payne, the Church of Satan, and discuss who had the sexiest soldiers in the Civil War. Additionally, Stan embarrasses himself by not knowing who Patrick Wilson is.
