It’s our last podcast before PAX Prime 2012 and we’ve got a 30-min interview with Michael Hicks, indie developer and coordinator on the upcoming Indie Games Uprising 3 for Xbox Live Indie Games. Tune in to hear what inspired him to make games, his thoughts on the industry, and what gamers can expect with the latest Uprising. We then move on to discuss the end of Nintendo Power, Rare’s ill-fated plans for Killer Instinct 3, and the censorship of anime when it comes to the west.
