Kumail and Emily sat down to talk with Howard Phillips, who has an impressive resume. He was one of the original workers in Nintendo's first American warehouse, which meant he shipped out Donkey Kong cabinets in his early days, and this led to product testing all Nintendo games, setting up the tips and tricks hotline, developing games himself, and co-creating Nintendo Power magazine. He's done it all, and we only meant to talk to him for 20 minutes but ended up talking to this amazingly inspirational legend of a dude for over an hour. Plus Kumail and Emily talk about NBA 2K13 and Dishonored!
