A WEEK IN GEEK: Before things get started, D. talks about becoming mildly internet famous for about a day (the social media accounts of his favorite band, Twisted Sister, shared art he made of each band member). For those wondering, here's the scene from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure in which Twisted Sister appears.
INDIE ACCOLADES: Andrew and D. talk about the world of independent creation––mostly games, mostly video games––and how it works in the face of the big corporate franchises discussed for the past few weeks.
WEEKS IN INDIE GAMES: Andrew and D. mention a few indie games that they've been enjoying over the last month or so. Andrew discusses his love and frustration with Thomas Happ's metaroidvania Axiom Verge and Powerhoof's Crawl. D. keeps returning to the existential dread that is noio's Kingdom: Classic as well as to the hilarious existential horror of Kitfox Games' The Shrouded Isle.
For all intents and purposes, that was an episode recap.
