Gigantic Interview with Rockstar’s Dan Houser

In Variety. Highly recommended reading; Houser barely ever does interviews, and I think he’s been saving up since this sucker is really long. A great read though; if you have 20 minutes to kill on a lunch hour or something, you could do a lot worse. It’s not spoileriffic either. Sample:
