On this week's episode, the guys talk about that most sacred of video game genres, the platformer. What is and isn't a platform game? Mario is a legendary platforming hero, but is a strong central character totally necessary for a platformer to find success? Is there still room for this subgenre to grow, and what might be the new steps we see these games taking? Plus, Rob quizzes Jay and Glenn on their superpowers of choice, and Boston becomes a rallying point for the "Nintendo Quest" Tugg campaign.
