Jason and I are both at PAX West in Seattle, so we recorded Kotaku Splitscreen a little later in the week than usual. It's a rare episode where we're sitting in the same room, at the same microphone, interrupting each other with much greater clarity and resolve. Topics discussed: Jason's impressed with the two-hour Final Fantasy XV demo he just played, while I'm unimpressed by the PAX South Park fart-smelling machine but completely obsessed with the new Hitman. Also, the new Phoenix Wright and some reader mail.
