Just listened this morning -- they have a disclaimer about Justin Roiland, which I thought was a decent way of handling it. I'm sympathetic to the "but lots of people worked on it!" argument but I'm probably never going to play the game because of it, either.

Also, oh my gosh, yes, Prey. I just played through it for the first time and I am absolutely in love with it, it's stunning. Last act falls down a little bit, I think, but other than that just a really tremendous work. I had to play it in 30-ish minute chunks because I couldn't handle the stress more than that. :D
