“Oh no, a wizard made my head big!”

Boy, it sure is October! How did that happen, eh? Well, you might as well join Brandon, Josh and Kyle as they break down the following: Sonic the Hedgehog comic book news, Marvel’s two big New York Comic Con oopsie-doodles (with one being FAR MORE OOPSIE than the other), a bunch of bullshit about that fucking McDonald’s szechuan sauce thing we’re all already sick of hearing about, a darling little kick-your-ass game you may have heard of called Cuphead (plus one real quick minute of A Hat in Time), and– just because you asked so nicely– a few listener emails.

“It is incredibly stupid. I loved it.”

You kids like lawsuits?? GREAT! Because, somehow, that’s the thread you end up with when Brandon, Josh, Liz and Kyle share recent security adventures, furrow brows at befuddling Sonic Forces sponsorships, marvel at Space Michael’s secret SEGA history, clap for Cuphead, muse over MORE Hiveswap, dissect the latest Amazon-funded version of The Tick, and stare directly into the sun that is Jaden Smith’s American anime passion project, Neo Yokio. Plus: a couple of listener emails!

“Fire cannot kill my bakes.”

Surprise surprise, it’s podcast surprise! Brandon, Liz and Kyle are here (after a brief hurricane delay) to provide the following: a first-hand account of the recent Muppets Take the Hollywood Bowl live show, musings on the current state of Rick and Morty, takes on the first chapter of the long-awaited Homestuck game Hiveswap, recaps of the last 1,000 years of Game of Thrones, thoughts on the vibe of the new-yet-familiar Great British Bake Off, and the many shirtless revelations on the latest Nintendo Direct. And a listener email, of course.

 

“Well, his friends had a funny joke idea… and then he did it.”

On this, the week of our Dragon Con (please come to our panel on Saturday!), returning guest Kyle joins Brandon and Josh to discuss clown adoptions, SNES Classic preorders, the dizzying narrative of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and what it’s like to marathon all of The Adventure Zone. Then, after the break, the trio settles back in to talk a bit about Joss Whedon’s… stuff… that he’s got goin’ on, then tumble way down a rabbit hole of superhero comics, My Hero Academia, overlong story arcs, the necessity of conspiracies and twists in modern-day episodic narratives, and more. Oh, and Overwatch stuff. And that crazy Half-Life 3 thing Marc Laidlaw did. Plus: a listener email! Just the one. It’s a good’n.

“We started strong with our wrong.”

Put away your roller skates and turn off the ceiling fans: Brandon, Tom, Josh and first-timer Kyle (of the self-declared overlong emails) are here for three hours of podcasting! Listen intently and respectfully, please, as they go to Momocon for graduation, flail excitedly after the ARMS Global testpunch, curiously prod the Mario + Rabbids crossover game leaks, celebrate Overwatch’s first anniversary, and become as gods with Nier Automata. Plus: listener emails!
