The last 4 normal levels and overall thoughts on the game, as well as a brief look at the secret levels, the multiplayer, cheats, and speedruns. Also, working as an evil corporation scientist, and narrowly avoiding a lecture on the Pythagorean theorem.

Back from our illness-induced break, we revisit Goldeneye with a focus on its middle levels: Silo through Statue Park. Also: random maps in Age of Empires, "Watch? Magnet? Attract?", Sean Bean dies, and statues of Lenin.

We begin with the context for Goldeneye as a relatively unusual game that stands out from its time. Then discussion of the general game mechanics as we work through the first five levels.

Turtle Rock, the Wind Fish, and the end of Link's Awakening! Also: random movies we think of while watching the ending, new additions to Mario Maker, and the occasional return of Bible references.

The Bottle Grotto and Key Cavern dungeons, as well as their interstitial quests (rescuing BowWow and retrieving the five Golden Leaves).  Also, Jay gives a math lecture, reprising the topic of Link's left-handedness, and the use of dogs in Breath of the Wild.
