If I had to guess when the episode aired, I would say very late August through some time in September. When the segment was FILMED, I'm not really sure. At the beginning of the show, Phil asks "Do you want to know what's hot this summer? Then put down the remote control," but then later Nick reviews the comic books for Sonic The Hedgehog 40, Killer Instinct Special 3 and Suberboy and the Ravers 1, which as far as I can tell, would have hit the street in September (at least two of them have "November" listed on the cover, but comics generally have 2-months-advance listing on the cover so newsstand folk knew when to take them off the rack, had they not sold). Of course, the hosts were rarely ever on screen together. I don't recall ever seeing Nick and Phil together, or Shashi when she was on in the first season. I do believe I saw Nick and one of the "fill-in" hosts together after Shashi left (Kevin Smith even co-hosted a few episodes when plugging Chasing Amy), but that was about it. Generally, they were shooting from different locations. One would be in NYC, the other in California, the last in Toronto, for example. So it is possible that segments were filmed in advance, and then spliced in with newer footage for something else at a later date. And there was generally a comic book news feed that briefly mentioned 3 or 4 new items every week. I'm new here, so I'm not really sure what kind of things people here like seeing, but if you're interested, I do have some clips of videogame-related things from the 90s already uploaded on youtube... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqP2ASYtLXg <--- Military Simulations (and being applied to games) from CNet Central https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM95fJVau7E <--- Game Testers from "The Next Step" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifgL3ED38Oc <--- Video Game coverage at CES from Local News, circa 1989/1990 (I can't remember which). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MneNbxFcp8 <--- 1997 segment about Arcade Emulators on PCs from CNet Central https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvEBE1e6W5k <--- Sony's Net Yaroze segment from MSNBC's The Site Somewhere on tape, I also have an MTV special about the launch of one of Sega's Gameworks arcades, from the late mid 90s. I also have almost all of the 6 episodes of GamePro TV that aired in 1996/97, but I see that they've all already been uploaded on youtube by another user. What I really wish I still had on VHS, but has been missing for around a decade now, is footage I recorded from The Today Show (Saturday), when they showed off the SNES, Genesis, Saturn, Playstation, Jaguar and an early version of the Ultra 64 with the first footage of Super Mario 64 I had ever seen (in early December 1995), as a segment about games people might want for Christmas. Games they showed off were from the DKC and Vectorman titles (talking about the "advanced" graphics of the older systems), I believe Bug and Clockwork Knight on the Saturn, Viewpoint and some first-person robot shooting game I can't recall ever seeing again on Playstation, and a snowboarding game on the Jaguar. I remember specifically NOT watching X-Men or the Tick on FoxKids, knowing I didn't want to miss it.
