Week in Geek: Andrew spends some time in Portland, Oregon and hangs out at one of its popular gamer bars, Ground Control. Dan reads Marvel's 2014 mini-series, Deadpool vs. X-Force and really enjoys some clever meta-retcon that happens.
Narrative Bifurcation: Dan and Andrew discuss some of the possibilities brought on by Nintendo's very interesting release of Fire Emblem Fate, which is actually two full-priced releases, Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest. Even then, the ostensible ending is only available via paid-DLC (titled Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation). It's a dangerous tactic, but can be used for good as well.
Bye Bye Bioware: Over the last few years, major players at famed video game developer, Bioware, have been hemorrhaging from the company at a surprising rate. However, is it the sign of doom some people are predicting?
