We talk about reboots, never even mentioning the fact that we recently rebooted our format. It’s like we’re willfully blind about that. Meanwhile, Dale and Mark complain about books.

War? What is it good for? Exciting games, that’s what! Good god, ya’ll. We discuss our favorite mass combat systems and our least favorite ones.

DC is trying to get their own movie juggernaut going, but the real question is: Do we want their cinematic universe? And why is DC seemingly so much better at TV than Marvel? All these questions and far, far nerdier ones as well.

We look to the things that will provide a small modicum of excitement and joy in our lives. It is very sad.

After a strange, unexpected delay we’re back with an episode about playin’ girls. We get psychological. Or not.

Let’s talk about myth and religions in games. Which ones are well represented? Which do interesting things with belief? Which ones are terrible? For some reason, this episode cuts off at the end. It is a mystery.

We talk about our favorite fluff from RPGs, the worst fluff, and the dated fluff. And we’re missing Dale, so there’s relatively few arguments. Is that a good thing? There’s also a ten minute discussion of Iron Man 3, if you want to skip ahead a bit.

We discuss lines of dialogue and scenes that utterly killed any investment we had in a property. Also, dumb song lyrics because those are dumb too.
