Episode 4: Surprise! Jedis Kinda Suck.

Episode 4: Surprise! Jedis Kinda Suck.

Despite seeing each other every single day, Jet Wolf & Ultrace somehow manage to enthuse over a dozen different topics this week. It’s one long geeky chat and YOU’RE INVITED. Not to the actual chat. That happened already. But to listen to the past. And pretend. BYOB.

Among (many) other things we discuss:

  • The triumphant (kinda?) return of Community.
  • Spider-Man, the state of the X-Men, Daredevil and how Mike will fight Mark Waid to the death.
  • We’ve just started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, and what begins as a discussion about its place in the world of MMOs somehow becomes Nikki talking about how much she hates Jedi.
  • Wasteland 2 is coming and Mike is stoked. He tells you why you should be too, and then Nikki gets all cynical about Kickstarter because of course she does.
  • The Final Round, where a statement is made that I guarantee you never, ever expected anyone to utter.

Episode 3: This Is My Favourite Podcast On The Citadel

Episode 3: This Is My Favourite Podcast On The Citadel

Mass Effect 3 is out, and we are excited, excited people. This week we can do little more than have an enthusiastic conversation about it, thus ostracizing that portion of our listening base that doesn’t actually care about video games. Yes, amazingly those people exist and they listen. I’d like to see the Venn diagram on that one.

  • Mass Effect 3 is the topic du jour, and we touch on our feelings about ME3 specifically, new features in the game, the series as a whole, what sets it apart from other role-playing games, how it could change the face of the RPG genre, and the awesomeness of Commander Shepard. We keep it spoiler-free, so listen without fear.
  • The Final Round. We keep to our theme, yet Ultrace is still somehow totally unprepared.
