This week we talk about last week's PAX Prime event! We even had a man in the field. His name is Andrew.
Week in Geek: Andrew hosts trivia with the 12th source for all nerdy and geeky news and discussion podcast, Nerdhole (check out their website for some terrific PAX Prime 2015 coverage), while Dan gets emotional and nostalgic as he watched a father play through the Oculus Rift Apollo Moon Landing demo.
PAX Prime 2015 News: Some announcements were made and news was had at this year's event. Dan and Andrew go through the things that piqued their interests.
PAX and Nerd Conventions: Andrew and Dan go over how PAX fits into the convention circuit that dominates the nerd world right now, what conventions mean––how those meanings have changed over time––and what it means for nerds in the future.
PAX Megagames: Andrew gets a chance to hop the velvet rope and actually work for a megagame at PAX, and they discuss the differences due to his role, where it took place, and how the game played.
Question of the Geek:
Did you like the 2005 Battlestar Galactica reboot? If so, how did it get its hooks into you? If not, why did you dislike it?
