Spooky Introductions (0:30)

  • Yes, you really can rent space at a light industrial building in Northern Singapore called Admirax. Merve doesn’t make this shit up. Admirax claims that’s not where her name comes from, but we all know she’s secretly employed by Ascendas-Singbridge. Spooky!

What We’ve Been Playing: Civilization (1:55)

What We’ve Been Playing: Telltale and Batman (9:30)

  • Steam store page for Batman – The Telltale Series.
  • The characters in The Walking Dead that The Kappa was referring to were Carley and Doug. No matter what, they die by the end of the game. (Source: The Walking Dead Wiki on Wikia)

What We’ve Been Playing: Fallout (16:25)

The Nintendo Switch, Part 1 (20:50)

If Nintendo Went Third-Party… (26:30)

  • To clarify, there are actually several Nintendo mobile applications, five of which are Pokémon-related. The only Nintendo-published one that is currently out is social messaging app Miitomo, but Super Mario Run is on the way this year. (Source: Nintendo Wiki on Wikia)
  • Correction: Puzzles & Dragons isn’t a Nintendo property. It was a mobile game by GungHo Online Entertainment first before a Mario-themed spin-off was released for the 3DS. (Source: Wikipedia)

Pokémon GO (33:45)

  • Official website for Pokémon GO.
  • Clarification: The first person who “caught ‘em all” and the people who were selling their Pokémon GO accounts are different people. The first person who caught all 145 monsters currently available in the game was Nick Johnson, who did so while being sponsored by Expedia. He was not one of the people who was auctioning their Pokémon GO account for thousands of dollars on eBay. (Sources: Venture Beat and Telegraph)
