“The ass has been dampened!”

SOO-GAH, JKPeers! It’s been one hell of a week in video game land, so let’s join Brandon, Harrison and Josh as they discuss the surprising durability of trash cans in Horizon: Zero Dawn, the ups and downs of the Nintendo Switch launch, and the joy of climbing in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Oh– and a listener emails section about robust rosters, embarrassing pronunciation discoveries, and… fart fetishes. Sure. Okay.

“Why hasn’t some trash-bastard made that yet?”

My goodness, what a full table we have! Join Brandon, Liz, Tom, Harrison and Josh on this special Switch-mas Eve episode as they go full Johto with the latest update to Pokemon Go, then hit the ends of Watch Dogs 2 and The Last Guardian. Then, after the break, they tackle John Wick 2, The Lego Batman Movie, and the most effective ways to ruin both of those through repetition. PLUS: you won’t want to miss our most robust emails segments yet, featuring questions about pets, zombies, the creative process, and self-censorship within the realm of YouTube comedy.

Yeah. It’s a biggun.

 

“I AM the Tokyo Big Show!”

Good evening, good evening, good evening good evening. Good evening. It’s podcast time, in case you weren’t aware, and Brandon, Liz and Harrison are sure as heck gonna talk about the Nintendo Switch and it’s HD Rumble, floppy arm boxing, the absence of levity, and how much GameStop sucks. Then, after the break, the gang dives into the world of streaming television to talk about Sherlock, The Expanse, The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Don’t worry– there are also listener emails. Please enjoy! God, please. Please try to enjoy something. Let’s all try.

“He’s so pissed he’s DEAD.”

Brandon, Liz, Josh, Harrison and a sporadic, electronic hum come together in the loft to map out the week’s major upcoming events and “celebrate” the release of Final Fantasy XV. Other topics covered this week include motorcycle repair and maintenance, Dishonored 2, Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival, Pokemon Sun/Moon, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them and Disney’s Moana.

 

“I want him to fill my book nook with glass baubles.”

THIS WEEK: Brandon, Josh, Harrison and Tom discuss hateful frog memes, BattleBots, deadly drones, handsome glass blowers, PlayStation VR, give some spoiler-free Luke Cage thoughts, and share some spoiler-heavy Undertale reactions in the wake of its one year anniversary.

“Lemme tell you about a little guy named Ray Parker. WAIT… Junior.”

Comic-Con’s a wrap! Let’s make that official with Brandon, Liz, Josh, Tom and Harrison as they give spoiler-free thoughts on Star Trek Beyond and touch upon Wonder Woman, Justice League, Doctor Who, Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and, yes, Sonic Mania. Then, after the break, our heroes dive into the zeitgeist (get it?) surrounding Ghostbusters, get excited about death machines in Battlebots, and analyze medicine-sniping grandmas in Overwatch.

Oh– and we play another round of catch-up with listener emails!

Holy shit! Brandon went to E3!

Wish you were there? Well, now you can! You can be-were-there, sort of! Vicariously! Between working a kiosk and walking the floor, Brandon somehow convinced Harrison and Allegra to take a break from promoting Volpin Props and talk about their show highlights in-progress. Then, after a quick break, Brandon returns– LIVE from his hotel room– to share more about his trade show adventures at the week’s end.

“He gave you, like, the BEST thank you!”

Guess which lion-faced heartthrob is back from Japan! Brandon and Eric are joined by a second, auxiliary Eric– longtime listener Eric Jarman of Jarman Props— to bask in wide-eyed wonderment as Tom recounts his many adventures in Tokyo. Cat cafes! Surprise weddings! Gashapon! Panty vending machines! Regrets. Tom experienced all of this and much, much more.

Plus: we unleash a hefty amount of love for the officially released, final version of Overwatch and make a brief request to comic readers regarding Captain America.

Oh– and a listener email!

“Ze Libyans!”

This week’s show starts out sad as Brandon, Liz, Eric, Josh and Harrison bid farewell to comic book visionary Darwyn Cooke and, much less importantly, The Muppets and Disney Infinity. Then, after the break, we GUSH over Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, analyze Captain America: Civil War, vibrate with excitement for Overwatch and tackle some listener emails– including an attempt at explaining what a “Gwenpool” is.

“I understand we’re all shitting for the fun of shitting…”

Bill Doran of Punished Props (and our last few Dragon*Con panels) joins Brandon, Josh, Eric, Tom, Jen and his friendly rival Harrison for a rowdy group discussion about this year’s PAX East and SwarmCon highlights. Then, after the break, the gang dives into the end of Homestuck, Nintendo’s E3/Zelda/NX bombshell, and Alex St. John’s embarrassing baby tantrum aimed at “wage slaves” and “mouse pushers”.

Plus: a couple of listener emails!
