The show also hears how the Syrian civil war is destabilizing other countries in the Mideast, with tens of thousands of refugees seeking refuge outside Syria, and discusses other Mideast hotspots, including Iran and Egypt. And what is the U.S. strategy in the Asia-Pacific region, where territorial disputes and new Chinese leaders are a major concern?

Electronic Arts Chief Creative Director Rich Hilleman talks with Cerny about his life and times in the gaming industry, and about his thinking on the state of the industry, from frustratingly difficult games to play to Hollywood's impact on games.
