1. I’m very glad Jordan wasn’t a guest witness in this case, because he would have had much to say at the opening. Jesse’s Dig Dug error had all of his favorite things.
-a multiverse, the Dig Dug-a-verse (the Dig Dug, Baraduke, and Mister Driller series all take place in the same world)
-a hilariously convoluted backstory (his name is Taizo Hori, he is totally divorced from Baraduke lady, and the later games in the series have him trying to pay child support for his Mister Driller kids)
-a team-up (the http://namco.wikia.com/wiki/Driller_Council
Driller Council, which is kind of like the astronauts in Armageddon except not in space)
I will leave the "Mister Doh/Doo" issue alone, despite Hodgeman going on about pronunciation this VERY EPISODE.
2. I’m surprised that Judge Hodgeman didn’t ask him to break down the systems within his 2 favorite games, which could tell him whether he’s playing the game passively or actively. Granted, being able to understand a thing is of little use if you don’t apply to other aspects of your life (I’d say the same of growing food or knowing Shakespeare), but being able to understand complex systems while doing a task is a great, unscientific way to determine how well one learns at work (where you have tasks to do immediately while comprehending and making more efficient the systems controlling your tasks).
3. I’m not sure the ruling was spot-on, but it was typically moving. Good job, all!
