What's better than waking up to a schnapps blow J on Christmas morning? How about a Christmas edition of Call Of Podcast!
Our last show of 2011 has Seth joining us to help us understand gaming A.I. and what makes it tick. Why are some games known for their A.I.? What makes good/bad A.I., and why is companion A.I. so shitty?
After that, we dive right into our picks for the COP awards. The categories are (cue close up shots of nominees):

The audio was pretty bad so I remixed the show and uploaded the new version. The echo is still there but is less annoying. I'm not gonna win a Grammy anytime soon.
