Still in Beta

This week we get onto talking a lot about the Willow TV show. Media about being in simulations, and the state of the DC Universe. And we actually do end up talking about a game and the controversy around Sports Story.

Our first episode of 2023, so we’re doing an end of year/beginning of the year wrap up or something. We talk about the games we played last year and air our grievances agents them.

William’s back in Texas, so we’ve got another live one. We talk about things Texans seem to care about, Crypto, AI, and Space Toilets. We even talk about some video games, like Marvel’s Avengers and why William has been playing Oblivion still. And we explore the possibilities of movie action stars that should have got their own video games.

It’s October, so we talk about Top Gun 2 and figure out the issues with Hocus Pocus 2’s plot. We also talk Marvel games with The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Why aren’t there more Halloween songs? And Wine!

It’s a special episode as I made it out to Florida for Labor Day. Our first in-person recording in a while and it got weird. We talk about The Outer Worlds, No Man’s Sky, and Cooking Simulator. BMW Microtransations and a surprisingly long rant about subscriptions.

It’s summer time and that means movies and tv I guess. We talk Thor: Love and Thunder while trying to understand the post-covid phase 4 goals. Netflix and why they need to stop. And we talk a little bit about video games like Hades and Valheim while I manage to talk about old man YouTube channels about city infrastructure and planning.

It’s Morbin’ time and neither of use watched the movie, so we don’t know if that’s a line or not. I finally finished Tunic. William Finished Elden Ring. I fell back into Hades with a brief FF7 Remake Intermission. We wrap up talking about the new Kids in the Hall.

I try to pitch Tunic to William. We discuss Elden Ring’s “hitbox gore”. Somehow Kingdom Hearts 4 is already announced. There’s a long tangent on J.J. Abrams and how terrible Fringe is. There’s also Digital Coke now.
Update: I poorly edited the original and cut the ending off, but that has now been restored!

I give William a minute to get Elden Ring out of his system before I talk Bayonetta 2. We briefly discuss time travel rules, what it meant to be a PG-13 movie in the 80s, and Japan’s issue with the mosaic filter. Then it’s on to the future of the videogame industry and NFTs, and we top it off with edible ears and other possible celebrity violence inspired foods.

William decides to predict the plot of The Batman as we come up with our first bit we end up calling “Unviews.” We finally discuss how we finished Assassin’s Creed Valhalla after playing too long. I talk Hades and William brings up Elden Ring. And at some point we talk about comic book religion.
