Episode 5: Dick Clark, Nature’s Own Cyborg

Episode 5: Dick Clark, Nature's Own Cyborg

In this episode we run the gamut from cutting edge current events to a segment we recorded weeks ago, mashing it all together and hoping you don’t notice. Also we implant into your brain the image of a rapping holographic Abe Lincoln. Really, you should be paying us for this stuff.

  • Dick Clark has passed, but he leaves us with a lifetime of memories and, we hope, the gateway to an exciting new world of Hollywood abusing dead celebrities for its own gain. I mean, can Dick Clark truly die? And should we allow this to happen if technology can save us?
  • The Avengers are coming. Jet Wolf has a happy little bitch about Avengers vs. X-Men (why does no one think of Rachel Summers??) Then we get excited about the upcoming movie for a second before starting to complain about that too. There’s a lot of complaining in this segment is what I’m saying. Also, Hank Pym is a jerk.
  • Jet Wolf finishes Mass Effect 3 and she talks about it a bit with Ultrace, who hasn’t. This is a spoiler-free discussion about the general nature of the ending, why it maybe wasn’t what people were expecting, and what the future may (or may not) hold.
  • The Final Round, where Ultrace poses the hardest question anyone has ever had to answer.

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.

Episode 1: Rick Rolls and FemSheps and DC (oh my)

Episode 1: Rick Rolls and FemSheps and DC (oh my)

Jet Wolf and Ultrace begin their adventure in podcasting with a few of their favourite things. Listen along as we discuss (at length):

  • The latest Rock Band DLC announcement. That was the most requested song? Really?
  • Mass Effect’s latest trailer. As FemShep finally takes the spotlight, we debate the pros and cons of a named, defined RPG protagonist.
  • DC’s New 52. The numbers are rolling in, and they aren’t looking good. What’s wrong with this industry that we love? Why the hell won’t everyone just turn over complete control to us? So many questions.
  • The Final Round. How better to close out a show than with an impossible choice? Though some are more impossiblier than others.
