Greetings listeners! After a quick break for the July 4th holiday, the giddy goons are back at it with another episode of mayhem. We've got a month of stuff to talk about, so strap on your boots and enjoy the ride. We run through a gamut of gaming goodies (Matt finally finishes Spider-Man and a few other gems and Ian finally learns the virtues of Hollow Knight), some great tunes (Dinosaur Pile-Up, ELO, Thom Yorke, Black Pumas) and some cool TV stuff. Enjoy!
Can you handle the information overload that is the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3? Ian and Matt are joined by their buddy Adam to sift through the mountain of announcements from the usual suspects (minus the mighty Sony) and talk about some of our faves from afar. Maybe next time we'll get some funding to actually GO to E3 next year. Anyone wanna help?
Welcome back to the show! Matt thoroughly tests out the new Oculus Quest and gets completely hooked on Beat Saber and Job Simulator. Is it the future of VR? Is the absence of cables really a good thing? Also, Ian's Spidey sense was apparently tingling for a couple of weeks straight. We have a ton of gaming updates with E3 just around the corner. We've also got a slew of new music releases. And what exactly are Bacon Jam Smash Burgers? Only we and Chef Tom from All Things BBQ know for sure...
Welcome back to the fray! We decided to kick everyone else out of the studio for this episode and go for a soft reboot of the show. Who are we kidding... We are just doing our usual thing but with SLIGHTLY less chaos. You'll hear about how much Ian enjoyed Days Gone and how Matt FINALLY finished Shadow of the Tomb Raider. We also have lots of music news and reviews including the 13-year-often-delayed-near-vaporware status of the new Tool album. Are the two new songs they're playing live worth the wait? You know what to do to find out...
Welcome back to another edition of the show! Our buddies Micah and Troy are here to taste test a whole new batch of hot sauces. Matt jumped on the opportunity to grab the Heatonist/Hot Ones subscription box exclusives and landed 3 super tasty treats to flavor our Chick-Fil-A NUGZ. What else is going on? Well, there is a ton of VR news, lots of new music of the eclectic variety, Ian's late 90's early 00's CD collection, Thomas the Snake Engine, Thrones with Games and lots of other cool stuff. And don't worry... no Avengers Endgame spoilers here. Only talk about the new Sonic trailer. And remember... It's not wise to upset a Wookiee.
Can Ian handle all of the news and announcements that came out of Star Wars Celebration? Rise of Skywalker! Jedi: Fallen Order! Galaxy's Edge! Clone Wars! The Mandalorian! Matt can barely contain his excitement while Ian takes a couple of laps around the block. Oh, but we've got so much more than that... We have a quick chat about the PS5 announcements with our own brand of speculation and uninformed opinions. How about that all-digital XBOX ONE S? Ian revels in his high school music collection while Matt covers a few new releases and his undying love for The Beatles. And we'd like to pose a question for you all... How does Ian REALLY feel about pickles? Listen in and find out!
Baby, we're not F... F... F... Foolin' this week when we talk about some of our favorite April Fools gags. Will Ian talk about Destiny and FromSoftware this week? Will Matt actually attend the butt-numb-a-thon that is the Marvel MCU 22-movie marathon before Avengers: Endgame arrives? Tune in to hear about that and lots of gaming news, bad jokes, sentient yogurt, speed runs and lots of other fun stuff. We even have some cool guitar and music gear to talk about. Enjoy!
This time around, our buddy Adam joins us for more opinions and banter-du-jour on our favorite subjects. A lot of stuff has happened over the past few weeks... So much, that we forgot to mention them! However, we've got lots of info on the latest announcements from Google, Nintendo, Sony and Apple. Yeah, the past two weeks have been busy! Plus we cover lots of new music releases, the joys of The Division 2, Ian's FromSoftware obsession and lots of Texas Hill Country munchies and libations. Cheers!
Matt wonders what Ian has been doing for his entire life when he reveals that he's never seen Carpenter classics like Big Trouble in Little China, They Live, The Fog, Escape From New York... And to top it off... no Ridley Scott masterpiece, Blade Runner?!?!? Matt's not sure if he can hang with Ian anymore... The team is here to banter about a bunch of gaming news including Anthem's rocky release, the virtues of Destiny 2 a year and a half after release and a bunch of other cool stuff. We say farewell to Luke Perry, Keith Flint and Brody Stevens. And what exactly is Mint Tin Skullduggery? We've got a few other tidbits in music and media as well. There's only one more question for you... Can The Machine find cheese?
Greetings one and all! This one's a bit shorter than normal, but we figured we'd give you all a break from our tangental nature. Ian still plays nothing but Destiny 2 while Matt desperately tries to finish Kingdom Hearts 3 despite the 12-hour work days. What's going on with Sony and E3? And wow, what a Nintendo Direct... lots of good stuff coming in 2019. You know you wanna hear our thoughts about it. Tune in and enjoy!
