Despite having played almost the exact same game on multiple Nintendo platforms in the past, half of this week’s episode is spent talking about Animal Crossing: New Leaf – we remember the times spent with the older AC games while cooing about how weirdly soothing this latest game is, too.
There’s a quick pit stop in The Geek Week in Review (again, mostly games-related stuff, aside from Bill yammering about a carny-slang website and Amazon’s weird new automated storyboarding service) and then we’re off to a bunch of E3 talk: Sony vs. Microsoft, Mirror’s Edge 2, Mad Max, Nintendo getting squeezed by the bigger console makers, and how the indie-friendly PS4 could allow us to play Gone Home and the Double Fine Kickstarter games on a console and with a real controller (as God intended).

This week we’re celebrating the long-delayed return of Arrested Development (spoilers for season 4) and chatting about Anne’s “Top Three”, the end of The West Wing, Saints Row 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and Anne’s upcoming attempt at planning a bachelorette party.
After a bout of insomnia, Anne’s back to watching TV & movies and so this week she offers up a review of Pain & Gain and ponders why Fringe is so hard to watch while Hannibal goes down easy, while Bill complains about Iron Man 3 (spoiler warning for that) and tries to talk about Star Trek Into Darkness without spoiling it for listeners (or for Anne).
