It's the final episode of the Chattycast with substitute host Ozzie Mejia. So he's going out with a quack, along with the panel of Steven Wong, Daniel Perez, and Josh Hawkins. This week, the panel discusses what studio reputations means when looking at new games, games that could have benefitted from taking player feedback, and classic games that could use a sequel.
Steve Watts is still discovering the joys of fatherhood, so substitute host Ozzie Mejia has returned from this year's Game Developers Conference to discuss the week's reveals, as well as virtual reality, Cities: Skylines (and the Maxis closure), and video game movies that should have been amazing, but were definitely not.
It's the first episode of the Shacknews Chattycast without host Steve Watts, who is taking care of his first child.

On Friday morning, we recorded the Shacknews Chattycast as usual. Moments after it ended, Steve Watts rushed to the hospital to welcome his first child. Meanwhile, Ozzie Mejia glued together this week's show out of nuts, bolts, some paperclips, and a stick of gum. Pardon our lateness!
