This is the time when we welcome Jordan Morris (Jordan Jesse Go!) to talk about all of the best and worst video games based on movies. Gremlins 2! Die Hard! The Lord of the Rings! We try and cover it all, from the moment you realized that you could actually play a game based in a world you'd only watched in movies, to the crappiness of the Green Lantern game. Plus some bonus talk about games we're playing now!

Kevin Pereira (host of G4's Attack of the Show) comes in to talk about his gaming history, about running bulletin boards at 9, and about getting to 2nd base in a pizza restaurant at 12. At 12, you guys. His story should be made into a movie starring Matthew Broderick.

Isn't co-op gaming the best, especially when it's with friends and not with strangers who call you terrible words? This week, Blair Butler and Stephen Johnson of G4 join us to talk about co-op gaming throughout our lives, our loves, and how we all played Horde Mode together the night before the recording. Also, we promote Stephen's one man show, "Is the Bible Magic?" Then stay tuned for a Side Quest with Kumail and Emily doling out advice on the best games to play with your lovah... just in time for Valentine's Day!

Today Kumail and Emily welcome Jensen Karp, owner of Gallery 1988 and curator of all things pop culture, to discuss the games throughout our lives that have caused us to rethink how video games work. We also try and address the games that changed the gaming industry as a whole, but mostly we just talk about ourselves. Plus Jensen discusses his rap career, and Kumail and Emily wrap up their thoughts on Uncharted 3!

Grandmaster Nerdist himself, Chris Hardwick, drops in to discuss growing up nerdy, obsessing over things & how he learned to use those obsessive qualities for good rather than evil. For instance, using them to save Hyrule or Skyrim from Ganon & the dragon threat, respectively. He also shares tips on how to game while still being productive in other aspects of your life. It's Chris Hardwick! What are you, not gonna listen?
