Episode 150 – Comivention

Episode 150 – Comivention

WEEK IN GEEK: Andrew returns to a previous WiG by booting up a since heavily patched River City Ransom Underground (starts at 2:03) while D. was impressed with the pragmatism and instructional value of Brandon Dayton‘s Sketchbook Summer artbook (12:32).

NERD LAW: When legal stuff happens in the nerd world, Andrew is on the case (though not dispensing any legal advice). This time around, he talks about Epic Games suing players who use cheats in Fortnite and Comic Con International winning its copyright battle against Salt Lake Comic Con over the term “Comic Con” (19:40)

Episode 96 – Applejacks. Hot Dogs. Thursday. Fire Truck.

Week in Geek: Andrew co-hosts a Hearthstone tournament while it lasted and played Klei Entertainment’s newest entry, Invisible Inc., while Dan watched two bad movies: Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and Jurassic World.

Captain America v Iron Man: Dawn of Civil War: Dan and Andrew go in-depth talking about what they felt Captain America: Civil War brings to not only the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s table, but to the superhero genre in general and, in a bit of self-gratification, compare this new release against the wobbly-but-similar entry, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Episode 88 – Idealistic Ventures Based on Bad Premises

Week in Geek: Andrew plays the demo for Square-Enix’s Bravely Second while Dan watches old movies that started franchises and, arguably, genres––X-Men and Rocky.

Origin Stories: Since the most recent trailer for Captain America: Civil War debuted Spider-Man’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many people are wondering if we’re going to be getting another Spider-Man origin story. Are we sick of origin stories? Why are they necessary? Dan and Andrew weave through the grommets of this discussion.

Whispers of the Old Gods: The newest expansion for Blizzard’s Hearthstone expansion has been announced, called “Whispers of the Old Gods,” which has a heavy Lovecraftian tint to it, which is right in our wheelhouse.

Episode 10 – Nerd Business

Episode 10 – Nerd Business

The podcast reaches an arbitrary milestone and our hosts celebrate in style!  They also make another podcast that falls into line with the standards set by the preceding episodes.

The Week in Geek:  Andrew plays a video game card game based on an MMO as well as, in his words, “eating comic books.”  Dan talks about his own comic, Long John.

Boasts of Bethel: Dan reminisces on his two experiences with ComicCon, and tries to figure out what the SDCC (as the REAL fans call it) is actually about.

Discussion: Since one of the biggest nerd gatherings happened this week in San Diego, Andrew and Dan decide to discuss it; but, more specifically, they try to answer the age old SDCC question: Who won––Marvel or DC?

Games That Matter: Dan and Andrew craft an argument as to why the Playstation 1 game, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, is super-important and should be on everybody’s roster.

Geek Thoughts:  After finally answering last week’s question, they go broad with this week’s, asking:

What is a movie, tv, or video game soundtrack that you hold particularly dear and why?

Submit your answer as a comment on the episode’s page at forall.libsyn.com, on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter (Dan and Andrew).  Also feel free to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and be sure to leave a comment there about how much you enjoy our thoughtful investigations into things geeky and nerdy!
