This week, Kumail and Emily welcome our good friend Pete Holmes to talk about what we're thinking and feeling when we sit down to play a shooter versus a puzzle game versus a MMORPG, and why thinking about stuff like that matters. Plus we get real silly too.

**SPOILER ALERT** There is a Mass Effect spoiler at 41:07

Today, Kumail and Emily welcome James Gunn, writer and director of movies like Super and Slither, and writer of the videogame Lollipop Chainsaw, to talk about... well, everything.

Remember back when every video game had an ice level, a fire level, and an underwater level, regardless of if it fit into the plot? We do, and we invite you to come reminisce with us on some of the best and worst individual levels in video games from the 80s through today! Then tell us about your favorites!

This week, joining Kumail and Emily to talk about this freakishly long console life cycle is Stephen Johnson of G4TV.com! We'll discuss what long console cycles mean for the industry, what the next cycle could improve upon, and some of the greatest hits of this endless summer of gaming. Plus we may apologize to people we were mean to in high school.

Given the Batmania that the country has been infected with, we decided to do a podcast salute to the Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader, Gotham's Savior, World's Greatest Detective, Bats, the weirdo in the outfit, etc and so on. We discuss all Batman movies, most Batman games, some Batman comics, and a few Batman cartoons- and who better to join us than a fellow superhero Hulk, aka Film Critic Hulk (in Bruce Banner mode). Don't worry, we don't discuss anything about The Dark Knight Rises until the very end, and we give a lot of warning before the spoiler-filled discussion.

The Comic-Con episode with Devin Faraci, Matt Mira, Jordan Morris, and more!
Kumail and Emily wanted to bring Comic-Con to you, so they decided to bring along a recorder, Twin Peaks-style, to capture every floor walk, (almost) every friend, every weird party, and every exhausted, stinky, fun moment.

Kumail and Emily welcome Adam Sessler to the show to talk about how he became one of the most well-respected industry voices (hint: it involves banks), what he plans on doing next, and what he thinks the gaming industry needs to continue evolving as an art form and an entertainment form.
