Toxikk Face shot

Evan, Tyler, and Wes talk about the death (and return?) of one of the PC's most beloved genres: the arena shooter. Toxikk, Ratz Instagib, Unreal Tournament, and the next Doom all get a mention.

And, as usual, we answer your questions about PC gaming.Will e-sports become real sports? Is digital distribution making games buggier?
