If that's true, then this episode's going to
be a laugh riot in 10 years.
weren't even sure if this episode would even record because of various
circumstances, but we're kind of glad it did so we could get some things off
our collective chest. For New Business,
Stephen and Donald have both fallen down the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate rabbit hole - including the dreaded
mutual hunts - and their responses are pretty much what you'd expect. Donald
follows up with another New 3DS showpiece in the free trial of Ironfall Invasion, followed by a dab of
payola and a cheap shot at Nintendo's future plans before getting his ink on in
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Austen
finally has a chance to go off on The Order:
1886, and apparently he's the only one who bought that full freight and
liked it (ed. – Weekend Confirmed
Alumni Jeff Cannata & Christian Spicer have my back. ). After quick-ish stops
with the Screamride Demo and the 2nd
of Resident Evil's many Revelations,
it's time for a not-for-children's card game in Hand of Fate, and the 2nd part of a long discussion of Baten Kaitos Origins (continued from
52). Warning: Here be spoilers.
For Whatcha Watchin', Donald finds out if
they're doing phrasing anymore thanks to Archer
Vice, while Stephen has been answering the immortal question of How The States Got Their Shapes.
Amazingly, the History Channel produced something recently that doesn't involve
aliens (we think). Austen reports on the horror and boredom of the 2015 Academy
Awards, and also lets us in on if Tiger
& Bunny fared better Rising
than the Dark Knight. Finally, there are the obligatory DC/Marvel comic book TV
minutes with Marvel's Agent Carter, The Flash, and The Arrow.
controversial release of The Order fresh in our minds, we turned the Feature towards the dilemma of determining
game value in an era of steam sales, flash sales, $20 price post-launch price
drops, used games, and economic recession (and yet a time when games are
cheaper than ever). The Mushrooms,
well, kind of summarize why quarter 1 of 2015 should be declared non-canon as
soon as is humanly possible (with maybe two or three exceptions), but also why
there could be hope yet for Kickstarter. Finally, we top them off with a celebration
of the late, great Leonard Nimoy, who passed away the day before recording.
We promise the next
episode will be much happier, especially since we'll be caught up from the
backlog, so why not drop us a line so we can drive 55? You can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org), tweet
