This week, the guys take on some macro gaming industry topics, including whether the AAA space is going to lead gaming into a bust.
We talk a bit of Mafia 3, Amy Hennig, PSVR, and more!
In a very special episode, Kostas sits down with Blake J Harris, author of "Console Wars", to interview him about how he created this book which is an excellent history of the 16-Bit era console war between the Sega Genesis and the Super Nintendo. "Console Wars" is going to be the basis of a documentary and eventually a feature film by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. I highly encourage everyone to read it and I hope you enjoy this interview!

Commercials Featured in this Episode:
The guys are joined by a man very strong in the force, Nathan Schmidt, and he helps them break down the awesome new Star Wars teaser trailer piece by piece. Be warned that this discussion becomes quite spoilery at times, as we take educated plot guesses based on circulated rumors. Unfortunately, due to this overanalysis, we don't quite have time to get to a discussion of Star Wars: Battlefront, but rest assured dear audience that that topic will be covered at length in the next regular episode of Multiple Lives this Monday. May the force be with you all!
