“In ten years, no one will be listening to Hozier…no one will be listening to Mumford and sons…”
This week, Mike and Jay spend too much time talking about the media that brings them so much joy. First, game talk – Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., Wolfenstein New Order, Battlefield: Hardline, Olliwood 2: Welcome to Olliwood, and Helldivers. And boy howdy, do they ever talk. The duo then jump into movies and television with ramblings about the return of The X-Files, the penultimate episode of the fifth season of The Walking Dead, a mea culpa about stupidity regarding the logistics of EMPs and zombies, and talk of the coming DC Universe movies.
NOTE: Due to technical difficulties, the episode will have a later release on iTunes. Apologies for any inconvenience.
In this weeks episode, Mike and Jay deal with the attack of zombies, led by fallen 80’s icons, courtesy of basic cable. Jay then possibly breaks Mike’s heart by bursting the bubble of casting possibilities for Alien 5. Jay continues to fight his chest cold as Mike talks of his reaction to the second episode of Powers, chock full of villainy goodness. Jay then waxes philosophical about several subjects, including his trading card collections of the past, using the new Topps Star Wars trading card app, and his new experiences with Wolfenstein ’14 a.k.a. Wolfenstein: The New Order. Mike gives his thoughts about Kid Icarus Uprising on 3DS, Battlefield: Hardline on XBox One, and Codename: S.T.E.A.M. on 3DS.
In this week’s episode, Mike and Jay explore new frontiers of technology and gaming, with a topic of such relevance it could have been had in 1991 – virtual reality. They also delve into a discussion about why the initial critical bashing of Blomkamp’s Chappie seems to be taking place, almost as if people are being paid to hate on it. Mike also gives his insight into some gaming topics, mainly about a new game that he’s picked up, Helldivers, the aforementioned topic of VR in gaming and, um, other avenues. Mike also revisits his latest views in movies, and Jay rounds out the discussion with his thoughts on The Walking Dead.
In this week’s episode, Mike and Jay bring the room down and discuss the passing of pop cultural icon, Leonard Nimoy, as well as the understanding that most of our beloved icons will be passing rather soon; and they concede that those losses will continue to hurt more than we may expect. The newly announced Aliens sequel project to be helmed by Neill Blomkamp is yet again another topic of discussion between the two. Mike then extolls the virtues and joys of The Order: 1886 in his review and discussion of the game and its treatment by critics. Mike then proposes an idea for a sequel to the game, tying together the lore of the game and the storyline of the movie version of Kingsmen: The Secret Service, which is a movie also discussed since Jay has finally seen it. Jay then jumps into his mini review of the sequel to the 2010 cult comedy, Hot Tub Time Machine.
