Episode Summary

THE GAMING HOUR - Bionic Commando/X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Vice's resident video game expert Stephen Lea Sheppard invites us into his bedroom to share his feelings on two recent releases: Bionic Commando and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. After effusing his high marks for the former, an NES remake with formidable game play, he damns the second, a crass movie tie-in, with faint praise. In addition to evaluating video games for us and writing role-playing games for White Wolf Games (the old-fashioned kind, with dice and sourcebooks and character sheets and occasionally tiny lead figurines), Lea (he goes by Lea) is also responsible for bringing to life two of the canonical figures in latter-day nerd culture: Harris Trinsky, the wise-beyond-his-years dungeonmaster in Freaks and Geeks, and Dudley Heinsbergen, the kid with Heinsbergen syndrome that Bill Murray is researching in The Royal Tennanbaums.moreless
