Endings - Do they matter?
In our on going look at the "meta" surrounding video games and pop culture, we look at when things come to an end. Is the ending important? Can it ruin an otherwise perfectly great work? Can they elevate a mediocre piece? Do we much too much stock in how something ends? Well, through their adorable amateur meanderings, Ben and Andy try to tackle this thorny issue, by looking at Bioshock: Infinite, A.I, Mass Effect and many others.

Nearly a year after the Szechuan-gate, and half a year after Logan-pocalypse, Andy and Ben look at the culture and the toxicity of fan culture and fandom. Yet, is the discussion more nuanced than is generally discussed? Is it possible to remove the toxicity from fandom in order to allow the great things fans do to flourish? Probably not.
