There be SPOILERS ahead!

In this week’s episode, Mike and Jay spend an inordinate amount of time talking about their experiences with Avengers: Age of Ultron; within the confines of the MCU, they also talk Agents of SHIELD with the introduction of Inhumans, and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. They also venture into the DC Shared Universe films and discuss various developments with David Ayers’ Suicide Squad and Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Mike discusses his completion of Battlefield: Hardline, Wolfenstein: New Order, and going back to Watchdogs. Jay’s contribution to the gaming talk is minimal, and is mainly talks about a new smartphone based app game, Night Terrors and the possibly game changing elements of real time survival horror played on a handheld device.
