Welcome to Episode 8. Welcome back fan. Thanks for listening. 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. Kirk or Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Let us know what you think by commenting on our Twitter account or our blog.
Welcome to Episode 7. We have officially passed Lucas by one episode. Granted it is easier for us to put together an episode. In this episode we discuss graphic novels and the potential of the graphic novel. We also mention Maus, I got a few details wrong, but I was right about it winning a Pulitzer Prize. So far it is the only graphic novel to do so. We discuss whether or not there are other graphic novels of the same caliber. We talk about time travel, a topic that we revisit several times during our discussion. We also discuss Star Trek and whether or not a society like the Federation of Planets could actually exist. Finally, we end the episode with our Battle Royale discussion. This week who would win in an automotive deathmatch James Dean or Lindsay Lohan. Sound off on any of the topics we covered by commenting on Twitter account or our blog.
Welcome back, this is episode 6.5. This is an interim episode. There are only two of us this time around. We talk about comics and comic related issues. We would say that we are doing this in honor of Comic-Con, but we don’t want Comic-Con to start thinking to much of itself. We also don’t end the episode with our traditional deathmatch. We will bring that back next time. I digress. We talk about how comics have great potential, but that instead of living up to that potential, they disappoint us regularly. Send us your comments.
Welcome back, this is episode 6. Rhett starts things off with a rant about the state of the Gaming Media or how sites dedicated to video gaming review and report on video games. We then move on to are family vacations really vacations or should we re-label the with something more appropriate. The next topic we discuss are video games that Vaughn played recently and may not play ever again. For our last topic we discuss whether or not video games can be seen as an art form. We then end our podcast with our Battle Royale discussion. This week’s contenders are Gandhi versus Martin Luther King Jr. This week’s Battle Royale is very different from our previous discussions, listen to see how it ends.
Rhett talks Last of Us with one of our fans, Chance.
Welcome to episode 5. We revisit the Daffy Duck versus Donald Duck free-for-all. Then we move on to 80’s television and movies that we would like to see rebooted. We mention Police Academy, Fraggle Rock, Star Wars, etc. Vaughn introduces us the SCP Foundation web site. Check it out if you want to question Vaughn’s sanity and maybe the sanity of the rest of the internet. From there we launch into Gotham City and why on Earth would anyone want to continue to live there? We get into some other topics and start quoting lines from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. We wrap up with our Battle Royale Tyler Durden(Fight Club) versus the Invisible Man. Give us your thoughts on who would win.
This episode opens with a discussion about the backpedaling that Microsoft has been doing in the wake of the unveiling of the Xbox One. We then move on to a discussion of the merits of the length British television series vs length of American television series. We also briefly touch on Japanese television. Then we go through Vaughn’s top ten video games and make fun of him for it. Rhett then asks us if we had a ridiculous amount of money what frivolous luxuries would we then buy. The episode finishes with our Battle Royale discussion. This week, who would win Donald Duck or Daffy Duck.
Welcome to our third episode. In this episode we discuss the developments in E3. Unless you have been under a rock for the past week you know that both the Xbox One and the PS4 have been unveiled at E3. You also know that Microsoft has delivered a mighty kick in the teeth to all the fans of the Xbox system. While Sony, on the other hand, has kicked Microsoft where it hurts. We also discuss games that were revealed at E3 and which ones we are anxious to see and perhaps play in the future. We close with some lighter nonsense and discuss whether Ocarina of Time Link would prevail in a Battle Royale against Captain Planet. Listen to the podcast to find out who we think would win.
Welcome back to the Distracted Gamers podcast. We open this podcast with a discussion of Grave of the Fireflies and other depressing movies in the same vein. Jason brings up causes with blatantly obvious ulterior motives. Vaughn asks if there are fiction authors that have influenced our development. Rhett closes with popular games that we may have hated and unpopular games that we actually liked. (The guy I was talking about was McNamara, I know I just forgot don’t email me and correct me 😛 .)
Rhett brings up Next Next Gen, Vaughn talks about superheroes and anime, Jason talks about dialog in video games. Eventually there is a debate about who would win between Popeye and Harry Potter. It gets pretty dumb.
