Episode 16: The Genosha of Candy

Episode 16: The Genosha of Candy

Halloween is here! Nobody really cares.

  • Candy and bad horror movies are really what we’re all about at this time of year. Just how glorious are cheesy 80s horror movie titles? Pretty damned glorious. Also did you know that candy has a hive mind and plots against you? You’re welcome.
    [00:00:36 – 00:12:26]
  • This week’s big bombshell was Disney’s acquisition of LucasArts. We talk about concerns (and the potential lack thereof), the future of the Star Wars franchise, and Nikki says something so heretical that you can actually hear Mike trying to burn her alive with his mind.
    [00:12:32 – 00:29:59]
  • Also hitting the rumour mill is Mass Effect 4, and all the many things we don’t know about it which have in no way stopped people from gnashing their teeth and crying to the heavens. It won’t have Shepard though, and we’re kind of fine with that.
    [00:30:06 – 00:38:32]
  • Mike goes for the jugular in this week’s Final Round. Nikki may never recover.

Episode 15: Crazy With Their Wildness

Episode 15: Crazy With Their Wildness

Leaves are turning, and apparently so are our moods. This week finds Jet Wolf and Ultrace rooted in the past, and they wallow in the murky pools of nostalgia.

  • Borderlands 2, let’s go ahead and get that necessary chat out of the way. How are we liking it? Pretty darned well, though we have a few quibbles because of course we do.
    [00:00:34 – 00:10:45]
  • We’re soon to embark on a quest to rewatch all of Sailor Moon, and Jet Wolf is kind of totally looking forward to it. We reflect on our deep involvement with the fandom in the mid to late 90s and how, despite this, we remember practically nothing today. This brings us to a few other old favourites, and was Fushigi Yuugi really as dark as our memory says? Quite probably so. Also, Evangelion is shit. Maggie Smith, however, remains awesome.
    [00:10:53 – 00:25:53]
  • City of Heroes is dead (or will be soon), and although we haven’t played for years, we’re sad about it. The sadness is surprising. We trade memories (Super Jump whooo!), discuss our favourite and not-so favourite characters, the awesome community, and lament all the stuff we never got to do. It’s the feel-good segment of the week!
    [00:26:00 – 00:43:08]
  • Another lengthy Final Round, despite Mike totally cheating with his question. YES YOU DID.
