“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!

“Please don’t confuse me with jerking off.”

Hope you guys like trailers, ’cause Brandon, Liz, Harrison and Tom are here to talk about a bunch of movies that aren’t even close to coming out yet. The Emoji Movie! Sausage Party! S.C.O.O.B.! Rogue One! Doctor Strange! Fantastic Beasts! A rather whitewashed Ghost in the Shell! Et cetera! Then, after the break, the gang talks about the Ratchet & Clank movie/game, Star Fox Zero, Miitomo and more. Plus: a return to listener emails!

“Well, possibly how dare you!”

What smells like olives and pineapple? Why, it must be a VERY SPECIAL live episode of JKP! That’s right– we tempted fate and turned on the webcams for another recording– this time with pizza and pajamas, for some reason!

Grab a slice and slip on your jimmy-jams as Brandon, Liz, Josh, Tom and Harrison go to war over toppings before discussing last year’s Rise of the Tomb Raider and that whole “Hulk Hogan sued Gawker” thing. Then, after a pizza break, most of the gang returns for some lively chatter over Playstation VR, the trailers for the new Ghostbusters and Captain America: Civil War, and  last-minute stabs at Batman v. Superman. Plus: listener emails. Obviously.

“Moist. Because of Star Wars.”

Join Brandon, Heidi, Harrison, Josh, Tom and Liz as they discuss every agonizing detail of Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Learn why it doesn’t matter if Rey is a Mary Sue! Guess Snoke’s actual height! Discover why Phasma’s armor is really, really stupid! All of these things and more of this exact sort of things await in one of our longest, most focused discussions yet. Plus– a special holiday treat for the gang and a few Decem-boo themed listener emails.

“NO! I won’t EAT IT unless it looks like STAR WARS!”

Happy Holidays, JKPeers! Deck the halls with Brandon, Josh, Harrison and Zack for one last Force Awakens discussion before the movie actually comes out and ruins everything forever. Maybe. Probably not. Who knows? Then, after the break, the discussion moves on to Nintendo patent speculation, our most embarrassing college stories, Fallout 4 experiences, and the highlights of this year’s Game Awards and PlayStation Experience. Plus– one or two (or three?) listener emails!

“What, did you fuck up slightly?”

Welcome to the Dogcast! This week’s show finds Brandon, Tom, Josh, Harrison, Eric and special guest Marina discussing some fresh-eyed impressions of Fire Emblem: Awakening, a disappointing review of Dragon Age: Inquisition’s “Trespasser” DLC, the delightful surprises of Undertale and the edutainment factor of The Martian. They also tackle a big ol’ bundle of listener emails… wherein you might discover things that make you go “m.
