In this week’s podcast, Brandon, Tom, and Josh catch up on last week’s Star Wars Celebration news and react to the announcement of Ken Levine’s new Bioshock game, then come back swinging in the second half (joined by special guest Heidi) for an intensely spoiler-heavy discussion about all things Scott Pilgrim. The comics, the movie, the soundtrack, silky red lady’s underpants… it’s all there and more. And seriously, we’re not foolin’ about the spoilers!
0:01:26 – A brief mention of Scott Pilgrim’s lackluster performance at the box office on opening weekend hints at the larger discussion to come… patience, boys, patience!

0:12:15 – The latest Star Wars Celebration just wrapped last week, and some startling announcements were made! I guess? I mean, if you’re a nerd or something. Pffsh.

0:32:22 – Bioshock Infinite?! What is that?! Oh Ken Levine, you charming spinner of yarns, what tricks do you have up your sleeves now?
0:42:30 – And now: a brief tangent on silent protagonists in video games.
0:53:00 – Intermission!
0:53:55 – The post-Scott Pilgrim observations/dissections/reflections begin!
1:53:34 – No, seriously, there are reasons that James Kochalka should be more strictly monitored.
