1:30 Chris talks about Wolfenstein: The New Order
Here are the Polygon articles Chris mentioned:
16:00 Shamus had a fight with Google.
The post is down until I get this sorted out, although you can see the original text here. You can decide for yourself if that qualifies as outrageous adult content.
