Now that E3 2012 is in the rearview mirror, it’s time to move on. Or is it? Unfortunately, some ridiculous controversy has spun out of the Electronic Entertainment Expo centered on Tomb Raider and the use of sexual assault as a narrative device.

On this week’s show, Mike White, Joey Davidson and myself tackle the issue head on, while also looping in the recently released Lollipop Chainsaw. What is up with the industry’s obsession with sex, and why can’t we grow up to address it in a sophisticated manner? Yea, this is one of those types of episodes. So tune in for a healthy dose of levelheaded debate.
