The Nerds team are without Cookie this week, but regulars Emily, Paul and Retroid are back with another episode. This week, the topics are Japanese film Audition is getting re-adapted in Hollywood, The Sims 4 is launching without certain basic elements like pools, David Duchovny is up for a new X-Files film but are we? Then we discuss the problematic kickstarter for S.T.A.L.K.E.R Areal and finally we sort out just how important it is that kids fiction isn’t only happy and smiley.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a listen!
