The Crystal Compass Podcast Episode #29

In case you missed it, the 29th episode of The Crystal Compass Podcast was released.

I encourage you to have a listen. The combat and scavenging for materials for upgrades in ROTR sound amazing. There was an Easter egg I didn't even pick up on in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.
