PC Gamer Speyrer Interview

The handsome fellows at PC Gamer have posted my interview with David Speyrer - project lead on Half-Life 2: Episode Two - up on their website. You may remember a few weeks back we posted the bits that were left over. Well, here's the cream of the interview for your eye-based enjoyment.
