The only thing I thought was odd was that they seemed to use college basketball as the main metaphor when everybody knows that college football is 100x more corrupt (because it pulls in a lot more cash). EA doesn't put any push behind March Madness compared to how much they push NCAA Football. Plus, all the current corruption news is swirling around Ohio State and football in general. A small misstep in an otherwise perfect episode.
Did anybody else notice that Peter Moore had an Okama GameSphere in his office?
One of your parents.
And who the fuck is Slash?
Uh, that was the whole episode?

Also still pretty unbelievable they mixed up German and Dutch, or did they do that on purpose?
Yeah it's probably the case as they used Sinterklaas (but gave it a german spin) for the base to make the Slash story. Also, it kinda fits with the whole "black slaves" theme.

They are very deliberate when it comes to language humor.
Now that I think about it more, it was actually pretty genius in how it all ties together.
I think so, but they've done so much stuff related to gaming in general: http://southpark.wikia.com/wiki/Video_Games

1. The hospital looks exactly like University Hospital, run by CU.
2. The CU president's office, is laid out exactly like that.
