This week we talk quite a bit about the MCU, including the box office record setting pace of Avengers: Endgame, rumors of stars being targeted for upcoming MCU movies, and some of the future road map that has been released. We mention the continuing delays of The New Mutants movie. We then finish things off with the next edition of Throne Watch, and a review of the days following the “Great War” in the north.
This week we are joined by another special guest, Ian McClelland. Ian makes mead and cider for a living and is also an artist, musician, songwriter and LARPer. We spend a little time talking about some old MMORPGs we liked including some you can still play. We give our initial spoiler free reviews of Avengers: Endgame, as well as discuss it’s amazing success at the box office. We get Ian to tell us about LARPing and he even plays us a song he wrote for the game. We finish the episode off with Throne Watch for the third episode of season eight. We go a little long but we think it is worth it.
This is the week we’ve been waiting for, the theatrical release of Avengers: Endgame. That said there isn’t much else going on in the nerd news world. Seems nothing wants to try and compete for space with this juggernaut of a movie. We do find things to talk about though. We discuss the upcoming movie and talk about our favorite MCU movies from the past eleven years. We debate the correct length of time to wait before posting or talking spoilers for movies and TV shows. We finish the show with another installment of Throne Watch, where we dissect the second episode of GoT season 8.
This week we welcome a couple of special guests, Anthony and John, who are developing a video game called Kard Fu. We discuss that, along with Star Wars news, and Critical Role’s stupendously successful Kickstarter. We also have the first installment of Throne Watch for you this week. There is also a ton of nerding out in all of the digressions from our original topics. This was a really fun episode where we just couldn’t stop talking.
Russ is back from his Florida excursion and joins us in the basement again this week. We hear about his trip home first. We then give our initial, spoiler free, thoughts on Shazam! We mention some news about the upcoming Black Widow movie, and discuss things we’ve heard about the future of the MCU after the Infinity Saga. We also talk about the Critical Role Kickstarter blowing through thier final stretch goal allowing them to produce a full season of animated shows. We get into a discussion on the now available for pre-order video game Vampire: The Masquarade – Bloodlines 2. We end the show with a brief review of some of the drinks that will be available at the new Star Wars Disney parks.
This week we are joined by our good friend Ed Rohn in the basement. We start off talking about the DC Universe news from Wondercon, as well as some of the movies coming out this month. Then we get into what we both love, D&D. We go a little long on this episode, but when the conversation is so good, it’s tough to stop.
This week is the last of our yearly cross country shows, as Russ prepares to make the trek home. We talk about some remarks Zack Snyder made regarding his vision of Batman, that spark some heated words. We also talk about Captain Marvel again, this time with spoilers (you have been warned). We discuss the casting of Deathstroke and his kids for DC’s Titans season two. We get into the early reviews for Shazam! We also touch on a new comic coming from Marvel later this year, and the Critical Role Kickstarter.
This week we discuss James Gunn being rehired by Marvel/Disney, as well as him directing The Suicide Squad. We talk other DC movies, including Suicide Squad, the upcoming Flash flick, and rumors about Batman. We somehow wind up talking a bit about Batman Beyond, and the Spiderman movies. Chris provides a summary of the brewery tour/pub crawl he did last weekend, while Russ gives his opionion on Mortal Engines now that he’s watched it on Blu-ray. Near the end we answer a question we posed on our Facebook page; what video game did you spend the most money playing as a kid?
This week we continue the cross country saga and give our first impressions on the Captain Marvel movie, spoiler free. Then we get into a discussion about a bunch of new shows that have been announced, with a few rumors thrown in, to be in the works. Several Marvel shows have been announced for Disney+, a new show being developed for Apple, as well as the return of a BBC America show on AMC. All this plus the usual train of thought derailings.
This week we continue our north south podcast. We discuss crowd funding, specifically the amazing results that Critical Role is getting from their Kickstarter. We talk about upcoming super hero movies, as well as some other movies that have been announced. We get into the new Ultraman cartoon that will be on Netflix. We also ask the question, who would you like to play D&D with?
