In today's episode we talk about Different Games, a indie game dev conference here in Toronto. We also touch upon the great fun to be had in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, the relaxing fun to be had with Monument Valley II, and the microtransaction fun with Magikarp Jump! We stall for time so Mike can't pee and bug him about his own game, "Keep it Up!". We once again chat this week's news as well including Kotaku's deep dive into the troubled development of Mass Effect: Andromeda. We are always looking for listener questions, send us one here at Contact!

Growing up in a small town, going to school for graphic and web design and finally moving to Toronto, Colin began to look for a new project and landed on Third Person. He has always had a passion for video games and finally decided to do something about it. Inspired by websites like Giant Bomb, Polygon, and Waypoint, Colin has founded Third Person with the intent of covering games using a mix of the old and the new.
Colin loves to dive into RPGs of all kinds, exploring their worlds and developing his character. Well-crafted stories draw him in too, and he is always on the lookout for a new adventure.
When he's not spending a billion years in a game's character creator, he can be found behind his camera, reading comic books or probably sleeping.
Some of his favorite games: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Alpha Protocol, Mass Effect, Overwatch, Life is Strange, Persona 4
