Former SOCOM Art Director Russ Phillips joins us this week to talk about the transition from AAA development to the indie mobile market with “Bottom Feeders.”  Russ also gives us a taste of “H-Hour,” the spiritual successor to the SOCOM franchise. We discuss Mike Maulbeck’s social media meltdown and the fallout for his former colleagues at Code Avarice.  In the lightning round, we make mention of the courts ruling in favor of EA in regards to a conflict with some of their shareholders, YouPorn dipping it’s toes into the eSports racket (it gets messy),and the video game themed haunted houses opening at Universal Studios in time for Halloween!  Somewhere in there we strong-arm Russ into playing a fresh round of ’10 Words Or Less’ with us too.  It’s a great talk, check it out!
