Ah, video games.  How would we indulge our escapist fantasies without leaving our couch?  Not easily.  But it is the 8-Bit game that holds a special place in our heart.  In all its simple, pixellated, midi-filled glory.  So Deanna Toxopeus gathers Gary Mitchell and Jessa Phillips to discuss why we still are obsessed with this style of gaming, given that the dominance of the HD rig in PC and console?  And they do discuss it, favourite games, controller issues and the appeal of 8-Bit.  So grab a seat on the Rec Room carpet and give it a listen.  In addition, there is the nerd news and week in nerdliness.  How exciting!
