DGN 11 – 6 Reasons to be Addicted to Iron Fist

6 Reasons to be Addicted to Iron Fist. Netflix has been incredibly successful recently with their Marvel television series. We loved the Daredevil series. Jessica Jones was pretty bad, but Luke Cage was another winner. Now, we are getting teasers from Netflix for their new series Iron Fist and it is looking awesome.

6 Reasons to be Addicted to Iron Fist

There’s a ton of news this week. Video games may be taking a bit of a break, but the news still keeps on rolling.

Now, you may think you can handle two dragons, but maybe start slow with one dragon and work up to two.

Without further ado the news for this week:

Episode 188 – Why the Order 1886 is Destroying America

Why the Order 1886 is Destroying America. That shadowy secret society that is dedicated to protecting mankind from the werewolf menace is destroying America. What would America be without werewolves and vampires? We would still be living under the rule of a foreign government. If it wasn’t for the shadow dwellers coming here to find a place where they wouldn’t be killed just for feeding off the living we wouldn’t be here.

Why the Order 1886 is Destroying America

Again, no word from Chance or anyone else for that matter. We have here another opportunity for someone to take Chance down. They could definitely become the new reigning king of email, but again no one has stepped up.

The hosts of the DG Podcast want me to warn you that what they recorded may represent the entire overthrow of the free world. There is a possibility that in there incoherent ramblings are the dangerous seeds of a cultural revolution that could sweep the globe in a firestorm both figurative and literal. Words have power to build and to destroy. Most-likely you will be fine, but you have been warned.

Episode 187 – Ban Robot Immigrants

Ban Robot Immigrants. You know that we are just going to have more and more problems with those darn robot immigrants. We should just ban them as a kneejerk reaction to the growing trend of artificials coming into our country.

Ban Robot Immigrants

No email from Chance this week. Evidently, no one wants to take over as king of the email. We are waiting for change to be dethroned, but so far no one has toppled his empire.

Wait till you hear what the hosts of the DG Podcast have been up to! You won’t believe your ears, your eyes, or any of your other 12 senses. That is how describable their lives actually are. Just take it slowly and if you need to pause you had better do so, or your head might just explode.

Episode 186 – 7 Secrets About Gamers

7 Secrets About Gamers. As you all know gamers have secrets. It is part of the allure, the attraction that surrounds gamers. Whenever there is a gamer there are secrets. Some of these secrets are so deep and dark we don’t even know about them ourselve which only adds to the mystique.

7 Secrets About Gamers

Chance once again graced us with his presence, not in the physical sense, in the email sense. Like he’d come all the way out here just to appear on our podcast when he can cast his voice through the internet in the form of quasi spam. So, for your pleasure here is the full text of his email.

Now, as we say on the show, moving on. Jason regaled us with tales of his exploits. Though exploits may be a bit of a stretch. Let’s just say at least he’s not dead. I mean, with his crazy life of reading and eating and sleeping it’s amazing that he doesn’t just drop from the sheer excitement.

Rhett is still Rhett. If he wasn’t the world would become an altogether too frightening place full of love, rainbows, and unicorns. It is a good thing that Rhett is there to keep that from happening. Can you imagine all those unicorns everywhere…it gives me the heebie-jeebies.

The Distracted Gamers Ep. 186 – 7 Secrets About Gamers

Gentlemen and Rhett

What’s up, my favorite very not a gay couple? I am listening to one of your episodes as I write this. Not sure which one, but Rhett is kvetching about shoveling snow or some such thing. Here in central Arkansas we live in a weird snow repelling bubble, and on the rare occasion we are beset by some of the white stuff, it’s usually less than an inch and melts off by the next afternoon. When I lived in the northern, more mountainous region of the state, we got about 2 or 3 decent snows per year on average, but not so much here. All the same, the second the people around here get wind of impending snow, there is a mad rush on in which all the bread and milk disappear within minutes. Arkies will scramble like the end of the world is coming, and it’s usually pretty funny to watch.

So I wanted to set a couple of things straight. First, when I was fussing about controllers that did not have a built in battery, I was referring to the Xbox One controller, not the Switch’s. Get it right, Rhett. Secondly, I am actually not the fan of cartridge based games you seem to think I am. I collect mostly disc based, thank you very much. But the reason I was and am happy about the decision to use physical carts for the Switch is that it eliminates moving parts, which will help the console’s longevity. There is a reason the old NES and Atari consoles still work, by and large, and it’s because they have no moving parts!!

Anywho, it’s been a week, fellas. I spent a great amount of time trying to get AT&T to unlock my phones so I could use them with another carrier, and they refused to do so even though I was completely out of contract and owed them not one red cent. As it turns out, even if I’d been successful, the phones did not jibe with T-Mobile’s network, so I ended up with some new phones. My wife stuck with Apple and got an IPhone 7 (much to my dismay, as I cannot stand Apple products) and I returned to LG and picked up a V20. So far so good with the phones, but T-Mobile’s network SUCKS. I literally could not make a phone call from my living room. They told me I was on the far end of their coverage even though my home is about 5 miles from a T-Mobile store!! They gave me a signal boosting device called a Cellspot that basically acts like a mini-tower in my home. The fact that I needed additional equipment to make my phone work inside my house gave me the willies, but I’ll stick with them for the time being. My son got a freebie phone, a Samsung Galaxy On5 it’s called, and he was bummed that my phone was so much nicer than his. He kept saying “But, man…come on!!!” I told him when he has a job and is paying for it, he can have whatever phone he likes, but as long as I am footing the bill, he gets what he gets. I have to say that while I am not a mobile gamer, the games I have tried on the phone look super nice.

Other than that, my week in geek consisted mostly of gaming with Rhett on some Halo 5. It would have been nice to try out Battleborn with him, but…well…updates. I also got in some Dead Rising 3 earlier today as my daughter napped. By the way, as satisfying as those mechs were in Halo 5, Rhett, they pale in comparison to killing thousands of zombies with a steamroller as it turns out. I highly recommend it. Man, Doctor Jason, I still want to get in some gaming with both of you. We need to make that happen soon! Battleborn is calling us!

Aaaaaand that’s it for me. I’ve got a baby to tend to. Maybe I’ll catch the broadcast if I am still awake then. Have a great show, guys!

Episode 185 – Why Geeks Rule the World

Why Geeks Rule the World. That’s right. We rule the world. How did that happen? Well it all started with the Information Age. Now, that information and technology are so pivotal for our society those who can control that information and utilize the technology are in charge.

Why Geeks Rule the World

Chance did send us an email again this week. Evidently, it was his birthday and he was busy doing birthday things instead of doing what he should have been doing, supporting this podcast. Without any further complaining here’s his email.

Jason brings up reality. It intrudes on our comfy illusions. Why does it always have to ruin things. Also, there’s stuff about Girl Meets World.

Rhett talks about Assassination Classroom and Battlefront, which isn’t as good as Battlefield 1. He also brings up Cowboy Bebop.
