Week in Geek: Andrew (and Dan, as well) watch the documentary, Atari: Game Over, about the search to find the buried copies of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Atari game, while Dan plays a game he’s played handfuls of times before on a tiny handeld system.
Final Fantasy IV: With Final Fantasy Record Keeper still digging its way into both Dan and Andrew’s respective brains, they dive back into the Final Fantasy pool and talk about, this time, Final Fantasy IV (a.k.a., Final Fantasy II, which Dan argues may be a better title for not obvious reasons).
The Great Trailer Fiasco of 2015: Andrew and Dan probe a bit into the strange week/week-and-a-half that saw the release of high-profile trailers and how they all interacted with each other, for better or for worse.
The “Fantastic” Four: One of the high-profile trailers that dropped this last week or so was a full trailer for Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four, their reboot of their middling, two-movie series from the last decade. With Marvel on the rise and no apparent crossover with Fox’s other superhero Marvel series, X-Men, Dan and Andrew wonder why Fox is betting so much on this singular property.
