Episode two hundred and sixty-three is upon us! This week brings with it some exciting video game news coming out of PAX East, including a sci-fi Civilization and the first single-player adventure set for Hearthstone. We then veer into the business world to talk about the recent Amazon acquisition of Comixology and the weeks-old giant Facebook buy of Occulus Rift. It’s like CNBC or some shit over here! Dawg!
We missed out on last week because I had some wedding stuff to take care of, so this week’s show is filled to the brim with random ramblings about everything from turtle snouts to heli-carriers. Captain America spoilers are definitely in effect, as we talk about the movie quite a bit and totally ruin some surprises.
There’s also some talk about Diablo 3 and me complaining about the new season of Archer like an old man who just wants his Windows XP to work like Windows 95.
We talked a bit about the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer on the show this week. Now, you can’t tell anything about how good a movie can be from the trailer (Man of Steel) however you can’t help but to like what Spidey is up to in the latest, of a LONG series, trailer for the next Spider-Man movie. He really does look like what you would expect from reading the comics.
That said, X-Men Days of Future Past also released a trailer today and it is a marked step-up from the previous looks at the movie.
Both of these could be terrible but these glimpses look good.
I found a cool picture of Woody Harrelson with a gun looking really disgusted, but the image uploader doesn’t want to work right now. Instead, please enjoy this picture of some dogs that was already on the server.
Welcome to the two hundred and sixtieth episode of the podcast! In this exciting episode we talk about the True Detective finale and our overwhelming appreciation for the series as a whole. Then there are some bits about the impending Batman vs. Superman vs. Captain America standoff that’s shaping up for 2016 and will never, ever happen. Someone’s going to move very soon.
Then there’s the Flash costume, which we didn’t hate as much as everyone else seems to. And then some bits on Constantine and the remake of Explorers, which is probably not as good as you remember. At least once they hit the alien planet.
We talked about a bunch of great stuff this week. From the very long Captain America Trailer/Clip, the Oscars and some Diablo III talk. Still, the thing that has me most excited this week (besides the True Detective Finale) is the upcoming premier of Cosmos on Fox. I was a big fan of the original when I was a kid and this new version looks more than capable of recapturing some of that magic from the Sagan version. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a great advocate for science in the media today and the production values look…hurm…out of this world. Check out the trailer below and then go watch the show.
We’ve got a brand new podcast up, in which we cover a wide variety of topics, from Jose’s absolute disgust for a brunette being cast as John Constantine to True Detective. And a bunch of stuff in between.
I was having a hard time selecting an image of Kate Mulgrew for this post, but as soon as I scrolled down in Image Search and saw this one beaming out of the screen I was like welp I guess I can post and go to bed now.
We diverged into a lot of Hearthstone talk this week. Now that the Beta is open we highly recommend that everyone that is interested in card games give it a shot. We’ve fallen hard for it. Oh yea, we still talk about a bunch of other stuff this week, so you wont be disappointed.
After two weeks and one seriously non-entertaining Super Bowl, we’re back! There’s tons of casting news this week, including Lex Luthor, Alfred, and Commissioner Gordon (the TV one). We cover all that stuff, along with more love for Rick and Morty, some exciting Superman comic news, and the unfortunate death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Enjoy!
We may be on the tipping point of a Superhero overload. This week on the show most of the “news” was devoted to a lot of comic book related stuff. We talk a little bit about the overload on the show this week and as you can imagine our opinions differ slightly. Give it a listen and tell us what you think.
Hey! Here we are again. A couple days late. But hey, here we are. This week is all about our favorite things of 2013, including comics, movies, games, and TV. This is in no way meant to be an all-inclusive “Best of the Year” list, as we haven’t seen and played everything we should have. There’s also a few bits about the Golden Globes thrown in from time to time. Enjoy!
