It’s comics and movies galore in our first half, somehow, despite the fact that a games convention just wrapped up in Germany! Brandon, Josh, and Zack mull over things like Deadpool, Grant Morrison, and the X-Men as Tom rushes to join them. Faster, Tom! Go, go! (The second half is chock full of video game conversation, we promise.)
0:08:01 – Mass Effect 2 is heading to the PS3?? Does word “exclusive” automatically come with an expiration date these days?
0:12:35 – Viewtiful Joe & Dormammu are in MvC3! Uh… okay? We already knew that, but… okay! Great!
0:21:14 – Somehow we find ourselves discussing the evolution of Deadpool, the writing of Grant Morrison, the current events of Batman, the art of Frank Quitely, and the almost immediate stumbling of Superman’s latest “going for a long walk” storyline
0:35:54 – Is it even possible for our trio to get excited about a new X-Men movie? Well, what if we told them it was set in the 60’s? How about that, mm?
0:42:55 – Suddenly: Tom arrives! And we gab on further about X-Men movies!
0:49:17 – Guy Gardner takes off for the farthest reaches of space in his new monthly series, but is the first arc going to be a huge plot tease?
0:54:18 – Intermission!
1:08:54 – The floor opens up to a more open debate over silent protagonists, then we have a shared moment of appreciation for the finer points of character creation.
1:21:20 – There’s going to be a Glee comic! Published by Bluewater! It’s going to be terrible, because no duh, but also for a reason that you will probably find quite surprising!
1:29:23- Listener mail! Zack takes the reigns and ad libs a fair amount… see if you can guess which bits come from the keyboards of our listeners and which bits come from Zack’s brain. First up is Peter…
1:32:10 – Freelance writes to pass on a brief but flattering pat-on-the-back!
1:33:03 – Tyler writes in to give us a rundown of our Top 10 episodes thus far, and asks us which two game universes we’d like to see a crossover for!
1:51:19 – Oh my god, we actually got another voicemail!? And oh my god, it’s basically amazing!?
