Why do snake heads have so much money?

It's Free to Play and we're here to finally answer whether proper action games can bloom on the battlefield.  Turns out they probably can.  Though this time the text here is important, because we spoil the stories of two fairly recent games, Assassin's Creed 3 and Metal Gear Rising.  I have put audio cues in to the podcast itself so you can skip ahead when you hear them.  

For Assassin's Creed 3, the audio cue is Ezio talking.  The discussion lasts from 42:20 to 44:10.

For Metal Gear Rising, the cue is Otacon and Snake talking at 57:40 through 59:12.  It is discussion of the final boss.

We also discuss Bit.Trip Runner 2, microtransactions in every EA game, and always-online as lock on your single-player games like Sim City.
