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.

Episode 9: Sick Romans and Crusty Jugglers

Episode 9: Sick Romans and Crusty Jugglers

This week is all about meth and misogyny. Fun times, fun times.

  • It’s been a bad week to be into video games and comic books and have a uterus. We’ve had to deal with the new Tomb Raider game “Press X To Not Be Raped”, the staggering hate surrounding the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games project [link], and the laugh-or-you’ll-cry cover to Catwoman #0 [link]. Jet Wolf has thoughts and feelings and she and ladybits are going to tell you all about them.
  • In keeping with tradition, we finished Breaking Bad about a year behind everyone else. With the fifth and final season around the corner, we talk about our impressions of last year’s finale and what we hope to see at the close of this dark and fascinating series. Mostly though Ultrace just really hates Walt. [Warning: spoilers for seasons 1-4 of Breaking Bad.]
  • The Final Round, in which Jet Wolf makes Ultrace cry.
