Hello and welcome to the fifth episode of the Nerds Assemble podcast.

In this episode, Paul, Paul, Paul and Emily spend far too long talking about Doctor Who again. They also discuss the ethics of sites asking for payment from developers and publishers for game reviews. Plus they try to decide just how excited they are about the Metal Gear Solid movie announcement and the upcoming TV pilot for SHIELD.

The main feature of this week’s podcast is another film themed discussion, this time asking whether it’s about time videogames got the same adaptation treatment as comic books when it comes to be being adapted into films. They look at past failures and successes (The House of the Dead to Silent Hill) in game to film adaptations and whether all videogames are really suitable for being adapted.

So, are you sitting comfortably?
