Dear listeners, Jorge has reached a critical point in his continuing mission, his trek through the stars if you will: the holodeck. This seminal piece of science fiction tech was inspired by and in turn has inspired the types of video games we play and how we even conceive of a virtual world. This week we dig into the concept of the holodeck, something that is simultaneously a blueprint and an source of aspiration for many of the games we play. Also: Jorge correctly and impressively predicts the holodeck-related plots of many Star Trek episodes that he has yet to watch.

Another month, another Nintendo Direct full of the hottest, most delectable morsels a person could ask for. Or at least that's the case for fans of Terry Bogard (you weirdos). This week we offer our takes on all of the recent announcements as well as try our hand at some international cultural analysis by way of region-specific Smash character requests. Apparently there's a huge diversity of opinion out there, except when it comes to Kingdom Hearts.
