About the Joystiq Research Institute
Each week, a mix of editors from Joystiq will be tasked with playing one game, which they will discuss on the next episode of the podcast. The JRI's pick of the week is Offspring Fling, now available on Steam. This week we've added a new element: Can Jess and Jordan coax Dave, this experiment's control, to say the music in Offspring Fling is stuck in his head.
