Even though this show is about spoilers and how nerd culture responds to them, there are no spoilers in this episode whatsoever.
Week in Geek: Andrew played Breath of Fire IV and ponders the choices of this rather forgotten series while Dan started playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and wonders how the hell it even exists.
The Dimensions of Lego: Dan and Andrew discuss the recently released toy-to-life game, Lego Dimensions; one of them is rather excited about it, another is, um, not.
SPOILERS (no spoilers): Andrew and Dan disagree a lot as they wend their way through a discussion on spoiler culture, its origins, our reactions, and how studios use them as marketing tools.
RIP PS VITA: According to this Kotaku article, Sony honcho, Shuhei Yoshida, makes a bold argument as to why the PS Vita hasn't fared so well in the market––pointing fingers (some justified, some not) at everyone but Sony itself.
Geeking Forward: Next week we'll be discussion supernatural/paranormal investigative fiction and how rad it is––all in the name of introducing Scarytober!
