Hello, and welcome to this week’s Nerds Assemble podcast. This time round, Emily, Paul, Cookie and Retroid discuss the upcoming closure of CVG; talk about Ridley Scott not directing the Blade Runner sequel; the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens teaser trailer; ponder a host of videogames from Elite: Dangerous, Super Smash Brothers to Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. And in our feature this week, ( as recorded at this year’s ArmadaCon in Plymouth), we discuss whether you really need high specs and high end graphics to really have enjoyable videogames.

So what are you waiting for? Listen up!
