Another Matrix movie? Spider-Man gone from the MCU? GAMESCOM? Karaoke lung? Lots of stuff to unpack this week! We've got quite a bit of cool stuff and a new segment we like to call "Bits and Pieces". We've got science, games (of the video and board variety), music, TV and tons of unsolicited opinions for you all. Thanks for listening and enjoy the show!
What exactly does "off the cuff" mean? Do Ian and Matt truly know everything, or did they entirely neglect to explore the origin of this dandy phrase? This time they're toying with the format and trying some new stuff. Ian has lots of keywords to discuss about science and tariffs (yeah, exciting stuff). Matt focuses on his true feelings about the new Tool song "Fear Inoculum" that dropped earlier today. And will Trogdor get to burninate the entire countryside, or will he just rage quit torching peasants and shacks in his fiery wake? Only Ian and Matt know for sure.
Greetings from the gruesome twosome! We say farewell to an icon (who gave one of the best speeches in film history – in Matt's opinion, anyway... Ian still hasn't seen Blade Runner). Matt talks about what it's like to be an AI on a space station while Ian is still obsessed with Destiny 2. Will he ever stop? Only time will tell... We've got some cool gaming bits, a mini Comic Con 2019 recap (what we found interesting anyway), some new music from Wilco, Sleater-Kinney and DIIV. Ian takes a trip down emo lane when he had the hair-in-the-face-cut and was full of angst. And did someone mention local beer? Grab a pint and smash that play button. Don't forget to rewind before returning!
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!
