Podcast Episode 12

In today’s episode we hear Rhett’s take on the Miley Cyrus episode at the music awards. We also hear his take on video game innovations. Sometimes video game developers need to remember if it isn’t broke don’t fix it. Jason then talks about religion and science-fiction, no not Scientology, but how science-fiction portrays religion and its adherents. Rhett brings up Bioware and the up coming Dragon Age 3. We come back to his issues with changing the game play in video game sequels just so people can’t say the sequel is a clone of the previous game. We also rag on Star Trek a little more in this episode, we really should get off that dead horse. Finally our Battle Royale for the evening: Frodo (with the One Ring) versus Luke "One Hand" Skywalker. We have our opinion on the outcome, let us know what you think by commenting on our Twitter account or our blog. Also, if you have any topics relating to nerd culture that you want us to discuss or any Battle Royale match-ups that you want to hear us debate send us your comments.

Podcast Episode 11

This time on the podcast we discuss the upcoming train wreck that was announced recently; Ben Affleck will be the next Batman. We also discuss books that were adapted into movies, which ones we enjoyed, which ones should never have been made, and which ones improved on the original material. There were so many that we may need to revisit this subject in the future. We then discuss the unnecessary addition of multi-player whenever a developer makes a new game. While multi-player can be fun, it can ruin a franchise. Does anyone else remember when Warcraft was an RTS? Then in our Battle Royale we pit the Wolverine, the Best at What He Does, against the Batman, Gotham’s Dark Knight. If you have input on how the fight would go let us know what you think by commenting on our Twitter account or our blog. Also, if you have any topics relating to nerd culture that you want us to discuss or any Battle Royale match-ups that you want to hear us debate send us your comments.

Podcast Episode 10

Here we are at episode 10. After weeks of blood, sweat, and gaming we are finally at our tenth episode. In this episode we cover: more reasons we don’t like Star Trek (we actually like Star Trek, we just like pointing out the flaws, but who doesn’t) Darwin and Creationism (don’t worry too much we don’t espouse one over the other we just talk about them). Then we get into over-reactions from liberals and Oprah not being able to buy a $38K handbag (that isn’t a typo). Next we move on to Artificial Intelligence and how science is trying to fake it. Finally, we end the podcast with our Battle Royale. This time the combatants are Legolas from The Lord of the Rings, Green Arrow from DC, and Hawkeye from Marvel. If you have input on how the fight would go let us know what you think by commenting on our Twitter account or our blog.

Podcast Episode 9

Here we are at episode 9. In today’s episode we discuss bad movies and why they disappoint us. Specifically, we talk about Green Lantern and Green Hornet. What is is about "Green" movies this time around that left us dissatisfied? We also discuss Star Trek and our confusion on how Star Fleet structures its chain of command. Why would the Chief Engineer be the logical person to command the ship in the absence of the Captain and second in command. Also in the discussion, the "duck face", we know you do it girls. Now, stop. Please. Rhett talks video game music and which video games had music that added something to the game. Our Battle Royale this week pits James Earl Jones against Morgan Freeman. This time around we have a split opinion, Jason favors Morgan Freeman while Rhett favors James Earl Jones. Let us know what you think by commenting on our Twitter account or our blog.

In this episode we start off with Rhett ranting how profession video gamers are not athletes and how the industry is changing, focusing more on mobile gaming. Jason introduces SETI, the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, and why it is so ridiculous that aliens haven’t contacted us because we would contaminate the cosmos with our barbarism. Rhett then talks about iconic villains and which ones we should and shouldn’t fear. We talk politics, Star Trek, and other nonsense. Finally, our Battle Royale, who would win Captain James T.
