Sam’s been moonlighting. He’s also been chewing bubble gum, because Duke’s been taking care of all the ass kicking. He’s also checked out Wolverine: Origins, a super-violent take on the everyone’s favorite/most-hated mutant.
Jonathan’s picked up Frozen Synapse, and has been shooting Alex in the face. He’s also been playing Ticket to Ride and Carcassone, classic board games, on his iPad. Also, he’s going to PAX! Woo!

I can also promise you that there will be a Name That Game! next week, for those of you missing it, because we’ve already recorded that episode. ’Til then!
