SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers for Dishonored sneak up on you in this episode. Watch out!
Vic and Scott get another surprise visitor—hey, are they really surprises anymore?—down in The Basement. Today it’s legendary developer Harvey Smith, one of the visionaries/creators behind Dishonored which, in case your memory is failing you, won our Rocket & Raygun Game of the Year award. Harvey has plenty of behind-the-scenes stories and revealing anecdotes about the making of the game. If you’re a fan of Dishonored, this episode of the The Basement qualifies as a must-listen. Also, if you’re wondering about upcoming DLC for Dishonored and Dishonored 2, Harvey has no information to share with Vic and Scott on either front. (Though he does admit that there will be some Daud-centric DLC sometime this year.) Also: Vic waxes poetic about the Metroid Prime Trilogy, which he is currently playing, even though he should be playing other things. This is Vic’s symbolic way of saying goodbye to his old friend, the Wii. Raunchy, crass, informative—hey, that’s The Basement.

I think the only critique I have for Dishonored is I would have liked to get to know Emily more. She’s a huge deal to Corvo and I think they should have brought that out a little more. But I still give Dishonored a ten out of ten!
