“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!

 

“Cool. Cool joke.”

April showers bring… a lot of repeat topics from our last episode, apparently. Join Brandon, Liz, Jen, Tom and Josh as they recap this year’s April Fools highlights, talk about some more of Breath of the Wild, talk about some more Mass Effect: Andromeda, and dive into some Twitter topic requests. Then, after the break, the gang prepares for an onslaught of live-action Disney self-adaptations by poking at 2017’s Beauty & the Beast, give Iron Fist an undeserved second chance, and really get into Marvel Comics’ recent, bewildering claim that diversity tanked their sales. Plus: listener emails!

“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.)

“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.

 

“Do a sex machina!”

Hope you saved up some orbs, because it’s time to summon Brandon, Tom and Eric (!!) and discuss Nintendo’s latest mobile offering, Fire Emblem Heroes. Also: we establish Steiner’s crucial role in Final Fantasy Record Keeper, spoop our hearts out with Resident Evil VII and tolerate/accept/enjoy Watch Dogs 2. Then, after the break, we go maximum nerd with Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Plus: listener emails!

“Wake up, sheeple!” -Liz Macke

In the last podcast of 2016, Brandon, Liz, Tom, and Josh say goodbye to George Michael, send their best wishes to Carrie Fisher, spoil and review Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, learn about Tom’s extremely sudden trip to Spain, and spoil and (mostly) praise Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

 

“The moon is a harsh mistress. Now, who wants a mustache ride?”

THIS WEEK: Brandon is joined by Liz, Tom and Zack for patriotic breakfasts, floppy Simpsons, Doctor Strange (SPOILERS this time!), early buzz around Spider-Man: Homecoming, the astoundingly beloved movie Arrival, the short stories of Ted Chiang, the seedy world of comic grading, and… listener emails!

“I’ll wear somethin’ spooky.”

NX: REVEALED! This week, join Brandon, Liz, Tom and Heidi as they (finally) react to Nintendo’s Switch and the latest update to Animal Crossing. Then, after the break, we refuse to spoil Doctor Strange (but try to talk about it anyway) and clap for Overwatch’s new hacker, Sombra. Oh– and read a listener email about quitting your job!

We hope you enjoy the show and laugh with us. America needs it right now.

“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.

“Is 35 the age where you reach your curious stage? And just have to start putting things in your mouth?”

This week’s show starts out somber as Liz and Brandon take some time to eulogize the late C. Martin Croker and reminisce over Careers of Turner Past… and, y’know, delve into a bit Great British Bake-Off and analyze a few Nanny Pixie Dream Girls. Then, after a quick break, Josh and Tom arrive to discuss Mario’s incredibly sudden debut on iPhone and the long-awaited unveiling of the PlayStation 4 Pro. PLUS: listener emails from some recent pic-a-nic associates!
