Get Rue-ral With a Companion Post

Another episode in the bag, another companion post up on the site.  Here’s to helping you understand our nonsense!

Let’s start off by driving home the point, you need to read Console Wars!  We are still working out the details, but we will be sitting down with the author, Blake J Harris in the future to discuss his work in putting this awesome work together.

Now with that said, let’s get into it!

The News

All the Hoth levels from Star Wars games, almost.

Cliffy B is back.

TSA wants your devices charged.

Maybe Kickstarter isn’t so great after all.

Holy Tango.

Robo Fingers!

JJ, with another ep VII reveal.

Thor is a woman now, black cap, and iron man moves to san fransisco.

Netflixation

The most important thing to take away from our thoughts on Prince Avalanche, is that Paul Rudd kinda looks like Mario.

For our next episode, we will be watching, The City of Lost Children.  Some of the promo images look creepy and it has Ron Perlman in it!  Win!

lost children

With a mad scientist kidnapping children to steal their dreams, only brave young Miette and a kindhearted circus strongman can save them.

Should be something interesting to view, won’t you join us?

Community Grab Bag

We have a couple questions for you this week, I’ll summarize.  What do you think of Netflixation so far?  Do you enjoy the segment?

How have you enjoyed the roundtables?  Would you like to see us break from our standard format more often?

 

As always, thanks for listening and check back next time for more nonsense from Team Fluxtaposed.

Gigantic

This trailer doesn’t reveal much of the game, Gigantic, but just take a moment to appreciate the style.  It looks gorgeous.  It may just be that I’m fully immersed in playing Wind Waker HD on Wii U right now, but damn…  I love it.

It should be an interesting spin on the whole MOBA, co-op, 3rd person games that are out there right now.  This one seems to be focused on territory control, at least from the gameplay that I have been able to watch so far.  I’m really hoping to get into the Alpha.  So that will mean more media to share along with more impressions of greatness.  If like me, you are hooked on Gigantic, you can find the main site here – http://www.gogigantic.com and I would also suggest visiting this sub on reddit.com.  http://www.reddit.com/r/gogigantic

Also of note, Lexxy, who you may remember for Penny Arcade’s Strip Search, works for Motiga,  the studio behind the game, and that is what really helped my stumble across the announcement.  I’ve been following what she, Katie, and Tavis have been up to since the competition, and I really recommend you spending some time with their respective strips.

Tenko King – If you like Zelda, you will love this comic.  The story is still getting started, but you know the young hero is prime for some awesome adventure.

Camp Weedonwantcha – The story of a camp of children abandoned and on their own.  Apparently there is a cat hidden in one of the panels from each posting.  I’ve yet to find one….

I will most likely babble about this a bit on our next episode, so consider this post your warning!

An Update on Episode 20

So after a crazy past week, we had to change up our entire production schedule.  We took last week off instead of this week, and FINALLY recorded Episode 20 last night.  I’m really looking forward to getting this one edited and out on the feed this week as soon as possible.  It’s been a really weird feeling not having an episode relase every week.

 

Anywho, thanks for being patient and get ready for that episode very soon.

Episode 20

Just like Ron Paul said: “It’s Happening!”

Holy crapsticks.  Tonight we are recording Episode 20 for this podcast.  For once, when Lucas and I started attempted to start a “project”, we actually made it happen.  20 straight weeks of nonsense, bad news, and slapstick.  It’s been an interested process growing and creating this show and I really look forward to what the next 20 episodes will bring.  I would like to occasionally incorporate a possible video feed and/or live shows into our routine.  Expect game nights to continue and other way to get you, the community, the listeners involved in the show.

Thanks for lending us your ears and your time, I’ve said it before, but it is greatly appreciated.  Just a reminder, we will not be recording an episode next week.  It’s time for a little podcast vacation.  Have a great Thursday. Get ready for Episode 20!

Hooray Episode 20.

Twenty!

Dramatic Mario Kart Finish

I’m still largely a n00b when it comes to Mario Kart 8, but I’m learning.  I’m also a n00b when it comes to a Wii U, so I had to play around with some of the features, including YouTube sharing.

Here’s a dramatic finish that took place when I simply wanted to block Baby Mario from passing me.  Apparently Luigi only races in one mode.  Ruthless.

Game Night

It’s time to decided on a game for our next game night.  Due to issues with Survey Monkey, I’ve decided to remake the poll back in google docs.  Please resubmit your choice if you had already done so.  I will not be carrying over the results.

Thanks!


We will see you on the battlefield!

Community Grab Bag

We had some more great content come in from Dave and Rob this episode.  Thanks for contributing.  We also would like to recommend anyone to pick up Titan Attacks on steam.  It’s a basic arcade shooter that is really a fancier version of Space Invaders.  There has been a “friendly” rivalry on Twitter taking place with scoreboard sharing.  You know you want to jump in.

Titan Attacks

Thanks everyone for listening.  Jump in the conversation for next week, that is my challenge for you!  Will you accept it and rise above it though?  That is the question!
