Episode 12: And Michael Phelps Would Win That, Too

Episode 12: And Michael Phelps Would Win That, Too

We emerge from our post-Olympic haze and try to make sense of a world without rings and medals and triumphant fanfare. Jet Wolf may never love again.

  • Around here it was the 2012 London Olympics all day every day, so we’ve got to deal with those feels first. We discuss our general thoughts about the games, specific hates about NBC, the American culture clash, and just what was up with those Opening Ceremonies anyway?
    [00:00:36 – 00:33:24]
  • Other games are also happening! It’s another look at What We’re Playing. Nikki enthuses about Assassin’s Creed 2 and Defense Grid while Mike talks up Beat Hazard and Scott Pilgrim. Then there’s that Skyrim disdain that takes us both by surprise. Also, PAX is coming! Holy crap!
    [00:33:32 – 01:04:18]
  • Is the Green Goblin Spidey’s archvillain?, Nikki wonders aloud. This leads us on a discussion about what makes a great archvillain and if it’s possible to have one years after the hero’s introduction.
    [01:04:26 – 01:17:05]
  • The Final Round, in which we wind up talking about Rock Band and Harmonix for six minutes.
    [01:17:13 – 01:25:33]
