33: Kang-Celled

It is factual that mobile gaming is still gaming, and this week we’re playing with words in a whole new light as Rich and I trade mobile word games live!  Marvel fatigue also continues to be real, and a not-so-gentle reminder that iMessage is just better, and your faith is just not strong enough.

32: The Wonder of Mankind’s Discovery

Is Star Trek too silly?  Does watching old people on TV suck?  Are drugs bad for you?  And how many emails are too many?  Rich and I attempt to answer these questions, but mostly have discovered that coffee is probably the answer to all questions, and if it isn’t, keep drinking boys and girls!

Covering Star Trek Discovery, For All Mankind, Super Mario Wonder and More!

31: What Lucky Men

After I traversed a nearly unhealthy amount of the Northeast this week, it’s time to settle down in front of a microphone and talk about portable gaming.  Rich regales us with a Legion of where handheld gaming can Go given enough sweat equity and kitchen sink.  And rich people towns have been measured and found wanting! (Lenovo Legion Go Review)

29: Kill ‘Em With Kindness (Meta Quest 3, Talk To Me, PS5 Slim)

After a brief and unexpected hiatus from the airwaves, we have returned to your weekly experience, dear listeners!  Our journey this week takes us through a pair of puzzle (and sometimes puzzling) games, a horror movie with Those Damned Kids in it, and a PS5 price increase, all leading to some commentary on Meta’s new VR/AR headset. 

27: Who wrote Doug Burgum? (Republican Debate, The Continental, No One Will Save You)

There is little question that our world would be a fair bit better if it were filled with all assassins, all aliens or all pirates, but instead we have too many politicians.  Rich and I discuss The Continental, No One Will Save You, and One Piece on our media consumption tour, and take some time to meander about the 2nd Republican Debates, as well as a few moments on the WGA strike victory.

26: Copilot Week (Microsoft Leaks, Tokyo Games Showcase, Surface and Copilot Announcements)

It is with great pains that I bring you the news of the week, gentle listenership – we’re talking about Microsoft stuff for a whole damned hour!  Our topics du jour include a mammoth leak of pending plans for the Xbox division, a few notable announcements from the Tokyo Games Showcase, the Surface-but-totally-AI event in NYC this week, and a quick mention of ActiBlizzard fun.

25: Titanium Tapping – “Apple’s Wanderlust Event 2023”

While we did not take a break from watching television and movies this week, our ever-objective gaze was cast primarily on the Apple Wanderlust press event for 2023, where we were reminded that people wearing smartwatches are alive because of it, that tapping is the new swiping, and that a customizable button is as new and fresh as a USB-C port.  Oh and Mother Nature is Octavia Spencer for five minutes.

23: “Tree Monkeys on Nitrous Oxide” – Starfield, Bramble and Hijack

Well met, Star Travelers!  We take to the cosmos this week on a path towards this week’s early access release of Starfield.  I spend a few moments exploring Nordic mythology in my review of Bramble: The Mountain King, and we stare dreamily into Idris Elba’s eyes while appreciating the romp that is Hijack.  And we’ve finally answered the question: are they gay?
