You may want to sit down for this one. Consulting firm Deloitte predicted this week that the  landscape of storytelling is undergoing a monumental shift, and the convergence of film, TV, and video games is reshaping entertainment, blurring the boundaries between cinematic and game world universes. In other words, the future holds more video game adaptations for TV and film -- which is pretty obvious to anyone who paid even a glancing look towards pop culture in 2023. We discuss what this bold new future of gaming adaptations may look like based on the successes and not-so-successes of the MCU.

We'll also be talking about how Geoff Keighley has said The Game Awards will beef up security to prevent stage-crashers this year, the new survey that says US kids want subscriptions and virtual currency more than games this Christmas, and how someone bought a retail Wii U for the first time in 17 months.

Finally, class is in session with Professor Ryebread in our Nostalgia 101 segment. In this episode, we're looking at '90s Christmas commercials.
