Cameron’s off to hobnob with Alan Wake in the lovely, cold, lifeless land of Washington, so entertaining the world is up to the remaining DV Cast. Stephen and Bryan shoveled their way through the weekend like games were unwanted leaves on their lawn before finally settling on Metal Gear Solid, which they hate and love in fits and spurts.
