This week, The Escapist crew discusses SimCity's launch day woes, the upcoming Google Glass device and the problems with privacy that may come with it. Also, we discuss how the definition of "literally" is being changed (much to Susan's chagrin), and the best way to play Story-Based RPGs.

From here on out, we're going to do our best to ensure each podcast also features video! But if you prefer the audio-only version of The Escapist Podcast, it's available for free from our RSS feed or our iTunes page!

The cast this week: Susan Arendt, Justin Clouse, Paul Goodman and Greg Tito.
