About this Episode

Jeff and Christian welcome Phil Kollar from Polygon.com to the show this week. They kick off with Story of the Week, which Phil thinks should be the triumph of Twitch Plays Pokemon finishing Pokemon Red and moving on Pokemon Crystal. Christian thinks that Nintendo shutting down their Wii and DS online servers is the most important story of the week, while Jeff suggests that it is the announcement of Twitch streaming being added to the Xbox One. They also imagine what a Minecraft movie might be, as well as whether a remastered Mass Effect trilogy would be a good thing for the new consoles.

Phil gives his impressions of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Bravely Default, and Christian has been enjoying Thief 4 on PS4.

Then it is time for the first round of March Madness, as the guys tackle the Cannata Division of the bracket with the help of your live calls and votes. Some intense match-ups and a few underdog winners may surprise you.

Finally, it is Tabletop Time, and Jeff recommends the storytelling game, Tales of the Arabian Nights as an interesting alternative to competitive board games.
