This week there’s some random Super Bowl talk before delving into sports games, virtual reality nausea, cowboys, 3D Resident Evil 5, and wrapping up with collector’s items.  It’s a wild ride but one worth taking.

Opening Song includes excerpts from DeDeDe (Metal Remix) by Ozzed
Closing Song: So They Say by Stratosphere off the Tetris Effect soundtrack
