We went in thinking about subscription services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime. You know, the stuff that everyone talks about. By the end of the discussion, however, we've realized that so much of what we consider as parts of our daily lives come as subscription services, too. Toothbrushes, kitty litter, even water bottles. We take advantage of the...

S4E29 - Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 & SDCC MCU Reveals - “Yes, we are recommending a bad game because it's great"

7/24/2019
More
In This Episode: We go in-depth on Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, covering the good and the bad and recommending it all the same. But here's the thing: it's not a very good game, mechanically. But it's a lot of fun and we are loving it, and we think you should play it. It's junk food. It's like eating movie theater candy. You know it's not great, but you are absolutely loving the experience. It’s a great low key co-op couch game, but neither of us have played it online co-op. We want to. It...

Basically, the AL is the Wizard's sanctioned D&D league where rewards travel over between everywhere, and no matter where you go, you can find a table to play at.

Support this Podcast in 3 Clicks! In This Episode: We discuss... spoilers! No, we're not trying to keep the topic from you. We are talking about how spoiler culture exists today and how radically different people can be when it comes to their reaction to spoilers. In terms of when we were first introduced to the idea of spoilers and keeping things sacred, so to speak, differed for both of us. For Void, it was when Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was released. People would drive...

He geeked out a lot while he was there, and we catch up on all the stuff he did while he had a friend to nerd out with. Dragon Quest Builders is a really fun game, but the bosses are kind of insane. And by insane, we mean super annoying and make the rest of an otherwise fun game a chore that may not be worth playing. Hopefully Dragon Quest Builders 2 will fix that. The Final...

In This Episode: We cover a quick main topic of SteamWorld Quest and then jump into an extra long Weekly Geekery since we skipped it for our Avengers Endgame spoilercast last week. In short, the SteamWorld games are pretty fantastic. They take a steampunk look and put the robots and cogs and gears into different settings. SteamWorld Dig is a western, SteamWorld Heist is in space, and now SteamWorld Quest is medieval fantasy. They all work so incredibly well that you almost forget you're...
