This week we change things up a little starting off with our new Prelude segment where we discuss what we are currently watching and playing. From there we head over to Level 1: Video Game News and go over the great Zynga lawsuit of 2012,<wbr> Microsoft denying the “new” Xbox and the rising world of digital media in the video game marketplace. </wbr>
In level two we touch on tech news from Valve expanding to more than just video games,<wbr> Android vs Apple and if anyone ACTUALLY cares about the mars landing. In level three we have a heaping helping of entertainment news from Sin City 2 to the H+ digital series (with the obligatory super hero news inbetween) and finally we close out the show with Drinks at the Inn. </wbr>
