The Indoor Kids with Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon

Nick Ahrens (iam8bit) joins us again to talk all things Mass Effect, now that we're all done with the entire series. Did you guys hear that there was some controversy over the ending? Weird, huh? We delve into all of it, reveal the fates of our Shepards, and talk future possibilities. Again, this is VERY SPOILER HEAVY, so we recommend listening only if you have finished Mass Effect 3, or if you like having things spoiled for you!

Today Kumail and Emily welcome Indoor Kid favorite Dominic Dierkes (@dominicdierkes) to discuss some of the oldest, biggest, best, and most elusive Easter Eggs in video game history! We run through early ones up through the eggs of today, and why we love them. And then there's also talk about Mortal Kombat character ethnicities. Plus Kumail gets some odd food from a 7 Eleven and we can't seem to stop talking about it.

Kumail and Emily have been traveling like crazy, both together and separately, so this episode was recorded with the Indoor Kids at home discussing all the video game news that's fit to print. They also talk the games they've been playing while they were separated (Emily- Journey and Skullgirls, Kumail- Uncharted: Golden Abyss). Then at the end Kumail kinda freaks out from sleep deprivation.

Story and Gaming, the Sequel- starring Devin Faraci

Today we welcome back Devin Faraci, Badass in Chief at Badass Digest, to chow down a bit more on the big issue of narrative in gaming. What makes a game a game? Can video games fully master cultural relevance when you have to devote so much time to them? If you don't devote the time to them and just experience the story, are you a gamer? We don't really answer any of these questions, but we do talk about them a lot. Listen and then tell us what you think!
