Henry, Chris, and Dave reconvene to discuss the usual bits about Spider-Man and Walking Dead, then Dave sets Henry off by bringing up season premiere of Newsroom, which is followed by happier talk of CM Punk writing comics, Dr. Doom as a blogger, and other malarkey.

The holiday game-release season is in full swing this week, with headliners that include two Assassin’s Creed games – one of which inspired a Top 5 about our favorite interquels.

Another year brings another Call of Duty, along with another round of jaded gamers rolling their eyes at the silly rah-rah army hero baby game. As anyone who’s played through its slickly realized campaigns can attest, however, there’s more to CoD’s stories than big guns and simplistic pro-war attitudes. There’ve even been a few times when the series has been downright subversive, and these are the fodder for this week’s Top 5.
