Did someone say, "spin-off?" That's right, Pubcast Patrons, IGN AU's own hard-drinking, sh*t-talking podcast team has splintered off into a side project: welcome to the very first episode of the Pubcast Happy Hour! In each of these special editions of the Pubcast we'll be inviting a special guest (or guests) to come and hang with us, drink some beers, talk about their passions and audibly gasp at the size of Cam's beard.
We're kicking off this series with a bang by catching up with Ricky Cambier; whiskey drinker, Naughty Dog game designer and one of the key talents behind The Last of Us, a game that's currently winning accolades in all corners of the gaming world.
Joining Pubcast regulars Tristan, Cam and Lucy, Ricky speaks candidly about Naughty Dog, offers insight into the design of The Last of Us, gives his impressions on the PlayStation 4 and answers reader questions from our Facebook page. He even unleashes a series of impressive dog puns. In fact this debut Happy Hour is so jam-packed with goodness that it actually goes for about 1 hour and 12 minutes. That's 20% extra happiness!
With a strong start like this it's only a matter of time before this booze-fuelled by-product joins the illustrious company of such popular spin-offs as New Coke, the state of Tasmania and Saved By the Bell: The College Years. We can only dream!
And don't forget you can check out (almost) all the previous episodes of the regular Pubcast on iTunes. And hey, why not subscribe while you're there? Also! Come join the IGN Australia Facebook community.
