Things get appropriately introspective as they discuss this week's topic: how and why does one leave the world of gaming behind? Get ready for lots of talk aboutBioshock Infinite,The Last of Us, andTetris. And beware: the Nerdologues studio (actually a dressing room) is a SPOILER ALERT-FREE ZONE!

It had to happen eventually! Today we cover the biggest thing in gaming in the past decade, World of Warcraft. Sam Roos (IO's Attica, Evil) takes us through the process of being lured in, getting good, and eventually realizing it's just not important to you anymore. Along the way we talk Counterstrike, Devil Make Cry, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and Tim describes how the wind knocked a pizza slice out of his hand.
