In this last episode of Hardline before E3 2014, we kind of lost our minds. Things started out proper, with talk of our most anticipated games of the show as well as Mortal Kombat X, Batman: Arkham Knight, and the superb Mario Kart 8. Business as usual. Then Homefront: The Revolution happened. For the audio-only episode, you can subscribe on iTunes and RSS or download directly.
