Cheese and Atari, the 1972 home console made by Magnavox, the Father of Video Games, Verbot: The 1980s voice-activated robot, Mortal Kombat tactics, Andy's stint working for Xboxthe Rockafire Explosion documentary, Brad Dourif's over-the-top performance in Myst 3: Exile, David and Richard's console recommendations, Leeroy Jenkins, The Call of The Blade, and Braid, the game that everyone agrees you should play.
