“I don’t want to go there and be baka gaijin.”

It’s Eric’s last show– possibly ever!?!?– and Brandon, Liz, Tom and Jenny have decided to see him off with a flurry of excitement over trailers, trailers, and more trailers– including the latest for Thor: Ragnarok and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Then, after the break, the table discusses how insanely cool Persona 5 is, analyses the new slew of Amazon series pilots, and plans their future trips to Japan, Europe, and pretty much any place that isn’t North America. Lastly, after one more quick break, the gang pools their strength to… give Felicia Day a very hard time, apparently!

 

“I believe that genre is called ‘clop clop,’ thank you.”

Dashing and daring, courageous and caring! These are words that COULD be used to describe your internet friends Brandon, Liz, Tom, and Jenny as they dive deeper into Zelda: Breath of the Wild, analyze the new hosts for The Great British Baking Show, and poke hesitantly at the trust fund kung fu of Iron Fist. Then, after the break, the gang watches some GOOD television with the revival of Samurai Jack, tumbles down a near-bottomless Disney Afternoon hole, gets wide-eyed and eager for Jordan Peele’s Get Out, and descends into the horrible bullshit surrounding the troubled release of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Oh, and a quick listener email!

(Heidi’s just here smoothin’ it in this episode, by the way. Ain’t no thang.)

“I’m fourteen! And an idiot.”

This week, Brandon, Heidi, Jenny and Tom soar up, up, and up some more for last minute, pre-launch No Man’s Sky chatter and an update on Final Fantasy XIV’s latest Heavensward shenanigans. Then, after the break, buckle up for a big ol’ SPOILER-HEAVY review of Suicide Squad– including a lengthy analysis of Jokers and Harley Quinns through the ages! You’re into that, right? Right. Great.

“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!

“Hope y’liked it, Carl!”

It’s Halloween, sort of! It’s the Back to the Future future! It’s both of those things and more in our newest episode as Brandon, Josh, Tom and Jenny discuss Crimson Peak, Pan, Valve’s VR tech, Marvel’s slew of rebooted #1’s (highlighting a rather stellar debut for Doctor Strange), and the latest and greatest Star Wars stuff– minus a certain new trailer that went up shortly after this episode wrapped. Also: a couple of listener emails!
