“I got a fuckin’ chicken sandwich today like an idiot! Like a fool.

Grab your biggest hitch, folks, because Brandon, Eric and Tom are going to take you on a whirlwind tour of trailers, trailers and more trailers. Star Wars! Ant-Man! Jurassic World! Batman v Superman! Fantastic Four! It’s a horrible parade of directionless energy and confused enthusiasm. Then, after the break, our trio touches upon Bloodborne for the PS4 and Netflix/Marvel’s latest and grittiest experiment, Daredevil. Oh– and listener emails, of course!

    I doubt Eric played them but all of the Star Wars battlefront games lacked a single player campaign. They had a single player mode where you would play the same maps in multi-player but no story based campaign. The reason they made the games like this was 2-fold:

    A) It doesn’t make any sense to spend assets on a single player campaign if the primary importance is the multi player, think of all the extra characters and animation you would have to make to accomidate a campaign.

    B) At the time Battlefeild was all multi player and was the experience people enjoyed, it’s only been recently that Battlefeild has had a single player game and that’s to compete with Call of Duty’s

    Lastly c’mon Eric, you know you’re going to play it no matter the format.

    I really enjoyed Daredevil (I have 1 episode left) and think that, while the violence is gratuitous, it’s not without reason in the storyline or the overall theme of the show of questioning whether a vigilante who goes above the law is any better than a criminal who kills for his vision of a better community. I also thought the hallway scene was one of the best cinematic fights I’ve seen in a while. The sustained truck in shot gives it a level of reality and grittiness (don’t worry, Eric, he gets more flippy later on). It felt almost like if Stanley Kubric made a comic book movie. There also another sustained shot fight scene with a pan shot that’s almost as successful.

    Chris Pratt better by training raptors with a 3D printed raptor larynx whistle in that movie or I’m walking out of the theater.

    I wasn’t planning on posting this here originally, but Tom’s birthday was referenced enough in the episode that I think it’s appropriate.

    Glad you gave Bloodborne an honest shot, and ended up enjoying it, Brandon! Once the Souls games finally clicked for me, they were unlike any videogame experience I’d ever had, and are still the bar to top. I went out and got a PS4 explicitly for playing Bloodborne, and then whatever else comes down the road.

    The adventures of Hugh Jacklady are coming to a close in Yharnam, but I’ve greatly enjoyed them, and look forward to hearing about if/when you hit the “turning point”, tonally. If you guys want tips or multi-player help, you know who to call.

    Let us cleanse these foul streets, and may you find your worth in the waking world.

  5. Eric, just to help confirm that is 100% Luke in the second teaser trailer of star wars, the first quote is a re-hashed version of the speech Luke gives Leia when he’s telling her that she is his sister. only difference is that when he says it in episode 6 is that he starts off with “you have that power too!” then proceeds to say “my father has it, I have it, and my sister has it”.

    Personally I doubt this quote is going to be in the actual movie cause it sounds a little too similar to Mark Hamill from there original trilogy, and it fits a little too well with all the nostalgia pulls they used in that trailer (direct references to the old film series). it is likely just pulled to rile up fan boys. But maybe i’ll be wrong.

    On a separate note, I’m surprised you guys aren’t interested in the new superman/batman film. I mean, it’s superman and batman, and if you are bored of those characters, or the constant “superman vs batman showdown” garbage, then I can totally respect that. To quote the notorious B.I.G.- “that shit is played out”.

    But as for the movie it’s self, I’m looking forward to it because it confirmed that a lot of the stupid batman hang ups that everyone had (voice, costume, bat fleck) aren’t going to be an issue, and that everyone can finally shut up about that stuff. plus it looks like a new(isn) direction for the screen versions of either/both characters, so that could be interesting. and clearly Jesse Eisenberg is in the narration of “false gods” so I’m curious how he’s going to work his way into the story. Jodie foster narration? thats odd. what’s she doing in there?
    I dunno, I feel like it’s given me more of a reason to see the movie than before. But then again, i’m also that lunatic that won’t go see movies in theatres unless i’m super interested. When everyone went to go see guardians of the galaxy in theatres, I was sitting down to watch looper in my living room for the first time, cause honestly, I don’t enjoy the theatre in the same way harrison doesn’t enjoy concerts. I always have had a better viewing experience in my own home.

    anyways, This is way longer than I thought it would be.

    Happy Belated Birthday Tom.

    To emphasis how Daredevil and Iron Fist are similar as street level martial art heroes, there was a time that Danny Rand posed as the other in order to convince the media that Matt Murdock wasn’t the masked vigilante.

    At this time Deadpool also ran into Iron Fist a few times in this get-up: http://www.4thletter.net/gavok/deadpool/55a.jpg
