The IGN PC team writes:
"We like to josh Charles about his Canadian heritage, and so today was the day that he flew back to his frigid motherland to recuperate. Well, actually, we sent him to check out Ubisoft in Montreal, but still, a day without Charles on the PC podcast is a day that Jason, Steve, and Jimmy have to do more work.
With that said, on the agenda today we have everybody's favorite alien life simulator, Spore. Then we talk about the Olympics that are going on in Beijing, which lets Steve rip on SEGA's recent Olympics game. We go over the headlines, discuss the week in PC gaming, and generally gang up on Jimmy."
