Episode 07 – The Volumometer Incident

Even in the face of a near disastrous behind the scenes technical glitch, it turns out that Andrew and Dan can’t be stopped.  Again, they bring you another outstanding episode that covers a straight-up plethora of topics, including:

Week in Geek:  Andrew plays the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game while Dan watches How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Looper and also finds time to play a few hours of Metal Gear Solid 3 in the wake of last week’s episode.

Boasts of Bethel: This week, Dan ruminates on how animated films are marginalized by modern American society and wonders what we can do to move it forward.

Discussion:  Nintendo guru, Shigeru Miyamoto, makes a startlingly bold claim that video games are in a state of “creative immaturity.”  Andrew and Dan discuss what this means and what it may take to get out of it.

Who Cares:  Going back to the well, they discuss not an episode or story but a villain! This time they venture into the mind of Davros, the creator of the Daleks.

Geek Thoughts:  After going over last week’s very debated question, this week they ask:

What is a game/movie/tv show/comic/book/album/etc. that you feel helped move its medium forward?  Why and how?

Until next week, for all intents and purposes, that was an episode breakdown.
