Up first a recap of our game of Coup, and then we’re straight into all the things we’ve played, watched and read:
Rocket League, Project CARS, The LEGO Movie, An Honest Liar, Superfast, The League, as well as more dodgy scifi and my hamfisted take on Kafka.
Rocket League, Project CARS, Alphabear, Massive Chalice, Inside Out, Terminator Genisys, Jurassic World, Antman, Paper Towns, Bob’s Burgers, Parks & Recreation, Bojack Horseman, The Strain, Wayward Pines, The Whispers, and a boardgame called Coup.
This week we’re joined by local podcaster and film maker Sash Nixon and we nerd out, well, pretty hard.
Elite Dangerous on Xbone, The Witcher 3, Arkham Knight, more Wolfenstein, a silly Forza thing, and a new Top Gun.
Check out Sash’s podcast here.
Wugga’s down with the sickness this week, so Mike, Gar, and Dave are let loose unsupervised. Carnage ensues. For hours.
Dave has lots to say about Jurassic World. We all have much and more to say about Game of Thrones. Mike has taken steps to form a legitimate opinion as regards Wolfenstein in its various forms.
It is time to insert E3 into your faceholes. So many games, with shiny trailers, hollow promises, and Oxford commas. For some reason.
Wugga, Mike, and Gar are joined by Blair, who’s hard out into that X-Wing board game. Though we don’t even mention it. Because E3.
We’re joined this week by Dave, the weird guy at work, if you work at Wonder Horse (Hamilton’s best bar).
This one is a monster, so get strapped in for the long haul. Oh, so many games:
A great deal of movies:
We Are Your Friends
San Andreas (sort of)
Gar has read some feminist(ish) scifi, Dave tells us why Louie is The Sopranos of comedy, and also describes the Game of Thrones board game slightly more coherently than Mike did last week.
Invisible Inc, Convoy, Neo Scavenger, Saints Row IV, Quiplash, Humble Bundles and an old racing game.
Many board games, including Love Letter and Game of Thrones.
That SNL finale, Penny Dreadful, Limitless and The Magicians.
Jem, and other terrible trailers.
Also, Gar read SEVENEVES and tries not to spoil too much, with mixed results.
More tales of scavenging, rocking out, driving fast, and then a whole bunch more of those same things as we talk all about Mad Max: Fury Road (this episode has spoilers, but we sign post it pretty clearly).
Ark: Survival Evolved, LEGO Dimensions, Neo Scavenger, Splatoon, Pure Pwnage, Community Season 6, and more stories from Elite: Dangerous and Star Wars: X-Wing.
Wugga, Gar, Mike and guest ‘caster Pete will be your guides on this journey into the unknown.
Convoy, Shovel Knight, State of Decay, Mortal Kombat. Things that are happening with GTA V, a thing that happened in Elite: Dangerous. A new TV show and an old one, moar Star Wars things to look at.
