Episode 80 – Alien Control Party

Episode 80 – Alien Control Party

Week in Geek: Andrew goes back to playing Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, while Dan goes way back into the past by playing the Nintendo DS release of the Super Famicom classic, Front Mission.

Also, friends of the show, Jason Tudor and Keith Houin’s sci-fi webcomic, Vorpal, now has a print version available for purchase. Check it out at Headshrinker’s Press.

Archiving Legacies: Dan and Andrew discuss how video games are being preserved and/or reintroduced to modern players and how the process isn’t as straightforward as it seems like it should be.

A +1 Parting of the Ways: Wizards of the Coast announces that it will not be holding an official presence at this year’s Gen Con, which is strange since Dungeons & Dragons creator, Gary Gygax, actually founded the show. What does this mean for WotC and Gen Con?
