On this week's show we look at recent comments made by Borderlands 2 designer John Hemmingway regarding Gearbox's upcoming Borderlands 2, in which the developer jokingly refers to a skill tree designed for casual players as "The Girlfriend Mode", and ask: was this a media beat-up? Or does Gearbox have something to feel ashamed about? We also look at recent comments made by Ubisoft Toronto managing director Jade Raymond regarding gamer expectation: she says gamers expect constant perfection from game developers, and this limits innovation in the games industry. Is she right? Also on the show: why do no third-party developers want to make games for the PlayStation Vita? Tune in!
