This week the Nerds Assemble Podcast team tackled: the passing of Hiroshi Yamauchi; Alan Moore being accused as the true source of the Northampton Clown; why people shouldn’t position Xbox Ones vertically; Ben Affleck on fan reactions… and we discuss what makes for a good spin-off from television to film, videogames and everything inbetween.
