EGX Rezzed may be delayed to July but we’re doing our darnedest to plug the gap it left in the week using Rezzed Digital. On this second day we we shove those GamesIndustry.biz and Eurogamer chumps away from the camera so we can have more of the spotlight. On our streams we’ll talk with one of the folks behind Desperados III (the return of the much-beloved real-time tactical cowboy ’em up), Imogen will gab about gamewords jobs, and Nate will give a fully true history of Jason Statham in video gaming. Plus those other nerks will still be doing other stuff, I guess. Read on for the schedule and streams.
But first! The RPS VidBuds have been looking at loads of games on our YouTube channel for Rezzed Digital, so hop on over between things. Onto the schedule!

From Press S for Statham to Stabyrinth and Statham: Isolation, absolutely every game featured is totally real, and the fact that Nate is also the author of a book of a fictional videogames should not cast any doubt on the veracity of this presentation.
