The first proper BSGcast review of the final 10 episodes, we break this beautiful character piece of an episode down into the essential elements and call BS on Ron's Retcon of Nikki's Parentage. That aside, we're all smiles about "Disquiet", because the set-up is clearly going somewhere, and it's gonna be good!
We also throw out a bit of information on the TWO giveaways we've got going on, the cPanel Flatpanel AND the Alienware Gaming Machine!

This week, Bob tackles a devil of a retcon.
Pokédex 3D Pro review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Pokédex 3D Pro for Nintendo 3DS. Everyone's wanted a Pokédex that talks to them. Everyone. Even people who have never played Pokémon in their lives. Don't ask how. Well, here's the closest you can get right now: An app for your 3DS containing statistical data, move lists, and general fluff on all 649 critters. (Or 727, depending on who's counting.) But don't trust its pronunciation of "Rattata." It's a filthy liar. I was there in '98; I know how it's pronounced. Nice attempt at retcon, Nintendo. This video review features video gameplay footage of Pokédex 3D Pro for 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
Mega Man Powered Up review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Mega Man Powered Up (developed and published by Capcom) for Sony PSP. True fact: An ex-girlfriend once prohibited me from talking about this game because she didn't think she could handle the cuteness. (Either that or she had some traumatic experience with Mega Man 1, which is completely understandable. Anyway. Powered Up is a super-chibi reimagination of Mega's first adventure... though the retconning is strong with this one. Somehow there's two new robot masters out of nowhere (DLN-00A and DLN-00B, but I'm not buyin' it), 100 challenge stages, the ability to play AS each Robot Master (presuming you beat them gently), and even a full level editor, complete with internet upload capacity. Man. Remember when Mega Man was a thing? This video review features video gameplay footage of Mega Man Powered Up for PSP and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine for Game Gear developed by Compile and published by Sega. Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine occupies a strange space in the pantheon of puzzle games. First off, it uses that name that Sega hates and has been trying to retcon out of existence for some time now. Second, for whatever reason, this Puyo Puyo title has been painted-over not just with Sonic characters, but specifically the designs from the ill-fated syndicated Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon. (Yeah. Not even the good one.) But despite all that... it is Puyo at its core, and that's a pretty good basis on which to start. Especially on a portable system. This video review features video gameplay footage of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine for the Sega Game Gear and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
People ask me about the Origin of Deadpool. Well here is my interpretation of Deadpool's Origin. This is the only way it will all work without retconing most of Deadpool's early stuff but still keeping Fabian Nicizenia's retro fit of Deadpool actually being Wade.
If you disagree with anything in this video let me know by posting a comment on this video. I love a debate but keep it civil people.

LORE - Megaman Lore in a Minute!
In the year 20XX, two scientists, Doctor Light and Doctor Wily are well known for their innovative and groundbreaking contributions to the ever-growing world of robotics. Being praised for their work in the areas of construction and industry, it was only appropriate that their creations be given the title of "Robot Masters," which seems like a surefire way to tempt fate into a robot apocalypse.
Dr. Wily, eventually getting sick of living in the shadow of Dr. Light's superior genius, re-programs six of the Robot Masters, goes on a megalomaniacal rampage, and attempts to take over the world because, well, that's just what crazed scientists with robot armies are supposed to do.
One of the remaining Robot Masters, known at the time as "Rock" and later retconned into "Mega", begs Dr. Light to convert him into a combat robot so that he can stop the madness of Dr. Wily's schemes. He is then outfitted with the "mega buster", a canon attached to his arm which, upon defeating other Robot Masters, attains the opposing robot's abilities.
After the success of the conversion, Mega Man is born! His mission: to defeat the Robot Masters, stop the evil domination of Dr. Wily, and restore the world to peace. Until it happens again for the next game. And the next game. And the next game. And well, you understand.
*SPOILERS* Take a look at the description before any question. Thanks.
I did not cut Grunt and Kasumi death scenes, you can compare them with the normal ones if you don't believe me.
Kasumi : Disappears if she wasn't loyal in Mass Effect 2.
Grunt : Dies against the Rachni if you choose to save the Queen while he wasn't loyal in Mass Effect 2.
Mordin : You can let him sacrifice himself to cure the genophage or betray him.
Kirrahe : If Thane died in Mass Effect 2 or if you didn't talk to him at the hospital, Kirrahe will show up instead.
Ashley/Kaidan : Fail to convince them during the attack of the Citadel. If you build too much intimacy with them (visiting the hospital, ...), they will always be convinced no matter what you said (if you didn't get the salarian councilor killed of course).
Thane : If you talked to him at the hospital, he will be stabbed by Kai Leng during the attack of the Citadel, then dies in the hospital afterward.
Zaeed : Dies if he wasn't loyal in Mass Effect 2.
Samara : Don't stop her from killing herself.
Legion : He will be killed by Tali if you choose to destroy the geth or will sacrifice himself if you choose any of the other choices.
Tali : She will commit suicide if you choose to upload the code without making peace between the quarians and the geth.
Wrex : If you sabotage the cure, he will try to kill you at the Citadel after you talked to the Asari councilor.
Miranda : She will die no matter what if you don't warn her about Kai Leng, if she was not loyal in Mass Effect 2, if you break up with her, or if you didn't gave her access to the Alliance files.
She will be killed by her father if you don't pick the blue or red option and don't trigger the renegade interrupt.
Jack : If you don't do the Grissom Academy mission, she will appear later as a Phantom in the Cerberus base.
Steve : He will die if you don't complete his friendship/romance path.
The Illusive Man : You need to pick the blue or red option at each conversation with him, and the blue ones in the final conversation if you want him to kill himself.
Anderson : "Save" him from TIM.
Bad Ending : The two squadmates you take for the final run will die if you don't have enough War Assets, and Earth will be destroyed if you pick the destoy option.
Liara, Garrus, Javik and James can only be killed by the beam.
Jacob can't die, unless he did in Mass Effect 2.
Garrus and Tali will still be dead if they died in Mass Effect 2, no retcon.
Morinth only appears as a banshee in London with no special dialogue.
Legion assassin appears in the Cerberus Base with no special dialogue.
EDI is dead if you choose the destroy ending (Extended cut confirmed it).
Thanks for watching !
PS : This video was done before the extended cut came out, so there isn't any footage of the new bad ending and the squadmates new beam death.
