Week in Geek: Andrew finally plays a WiiU with the Nintendo title, Super Mario 3D World, while Dan discusses his time at this year's Crocker-Con at the Crocker Art Museum.
Group Gaming: Before the internet connected people worldwide, the solitary world of video gaming was often perforated by moments of playing a single game with a group of people. Dan and Andrew discuss this nostalgic (and still present) method of playing games with people in the room rather than online.
Game & Watch: With the rise of televised (or streamed) eSports and the success of things like Twitch Plays or Let's Plays, gaming is more connected than ever. However, with the addition of a passive gaming experience does bring up interesting questions and ideas to what gaming is and how it's changing.
Doctor Who Series 9 Prologue: If you haven't seen it, watch it here. Once that's done, listen to Andrew and Dan talk about Doctor Who if only to prepare for a full episode about Doctor Who next week.
