You know how I love my Rift goodness! If you missed it, I reviewed PinballFX 2 VR over at That’s Entertaining! If you love entertainment that is entertaining, then check out their podcast! While you’re there, check out this mind melting review HERE… if you DARE!!!
Just wanted to let everyone know that we have decided to postpone the podcast until next week. An American holiday, schedules, projects, and family related items are taking priority. Enjoy this week off from Fluxtaposed and we will return next week in order to better server you!
Jason recently reviewed Star Fox Zero at the Play Some Video Games site. Give it a read HERE.
That things haven’t been quite themselves lately. You’d be right. As I mentioned during this weeks episode, we have migrated to a new host, which is giving me my first experience of being a server admin. It’s a nightmare. Things had been running smoothly, and then SSL went ahead and destroyed everything. The good … Read More
Just watch… Player Two from John Wikstrom on Vimeo. Man…. the feels….
Hello everyone! Next show, we will be bringing you another top 3 discussion that is focusing on the “wacky” peripherals we have personally owned. Power Gloves, knock-off Zappers, who knows what this one will bring. It’s your time to shine and we want to hear from you! Did you have some rapid-fire, turbo-action controller? Maybe … Read More
“Focus” is returning to Fluxtaposed. You may have noticed a slight format change ever since episode 100. We explored a route of pure “off the cuff” style and free-flowing conversation. While we feel that this is a staple of what truly is Fluxtaposed, we wanted to offer a bit more to you, the listener. While … Read More
Hello friends! You may have heard me talk about the Mad Max game on the most recent episode of our podcast, episode 111. I was able to snag this great game by signing up for Humble Bundle’s monthly subscription service. Basically, think of loot crate, but instead of silly bobble heads and t-shirts, you get … Read More
Look at this Wii. It may not look like it, but it’s been a source of loathing for me for some time. A long time now, really. See, if you’re not familiar with the Nintendo Wii gaming system and it’s plethora of peripherals, then you probably never heard of a Wii title called Wii … Read More
Hey Everyone, Just a quick update on how the 21-day program is going. No complaints and this is the final week! It was great being able to add meat back into the diet, it just made everything easier. If you’ve come this far though, it’s really all downhill, that’s what I keep telling myself at … Read More
Hey Everybody, Jason here. As you probably DID NOT hear, on Episode 100… My wife and I decided to transform our diets and really our bodies, by doing a 21-day detox program. I was incredibly skeptic at first. In the past I would just laugh this off. I can’t eat that way. I don’t want … Read More
So much this…yes.
You know we love it and if you ever wanted to jump on board, now is the time! Awesomenauts is currently on sale at the Humble Store for $0.99! What are you waiting for, it’s the perfect time to buy!
Need a new pair of socks? Check out this awesome pair of Nintendo themed controller socks over at boldsocks.com!
I haven’t purchased let alone play a Madden game in a few years. Either way, you have to admit that they are going big with this commercial for Madden 16…
Hey everybody, Jason here, and I’m working on getting a little game night going for Star Wars: Battlefront II! I’m thinking that we might try to get a little impromptu session this weekend, but would have the formal event going next week maybe Wed or Thu evening? If you are unfamiliar with the game, it’s … Read More
Catch part one of an epic three-part saga. Jason is all that stands between Corneria and the might of Andross!
So a news article that didn’t make the cut this week was about all of the hullabaloo around a possible leak for DLC in Smash Bros containing the character Rayman. Reddit threads were buzzing and the fans shouted in delight. Only to have their dreams shattered when it was revealed that this was an elaborate … Read More
Have you watched the Simpsons intro re-made in pixel style? Well here’s your chance!
As promised, here’s my unboxing of my new Android phone, the One by OnePlus!
We played a bit of this jam in episode 45. We know you dig it. Now it’s time for the full visual experience. Here you, it’s the “Space Camp Song” in all of its glory!
I missed it last night, so here it is in interwebs form! Really interested to see how Paul Rudd does in this role. Marvel may be taking a leap on this one, but hey, it worked for Guardians of the Galaxy. Here’s your Ant-Man trailer:
Close to two weeks ago was the Evolve Big Alpha. Jason sat aside some time to play for the first time and Steve (from co-hosting fame) showed him the ropes. There are 4 separate rounds from this one playthrough session and it looks like they had great success. It’s hard to say what this game … Read More
Check out this thread over on NeoGAF – http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=918256 GOG.com will be revealing a new publisher in a little over 3 days. Based on the fonts that one user found on the GOG site, those look strikingly like Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and Monkey Island! I have a very strong love for past Lucasarts titles. How … Read More
Man… This movie is going to be AWESOME. It’s already been all over the internet at this point, but we still wanted to post this up here. If you haven’t watched yet, enjoy! Here’s the teaser trailer for Avegers 2: Age of Ultron!

Eager to see what we come up with for our next intro? Well here you go, have some Awesomenauts!
Hey! Remember when we were still starting out and really struggling to catch our stride? Yeah I know, not much has changed, but that is not the point! We had a very brief interview with Inverse Phase that was read on the show. Well guess what?? He has a new album out and we strongly … Read More
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 … Read More
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 … Read More
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! Loading… We will see you on the battlefield!

Alright gang, here we go. The Details Frag Night will be going down next week. Because the availability is slightly split, I am going to be running two sessions. Round one will be on Thursday, 6/19, starting at 9pm, ending TBD. You can find me on Quake Live as fluxay, but I will begin adding … Read More
As suggested by the amazing @robop1g weeks ago. We are going to move forward with organizing a community game night. To keep these as open and accessible to as many people as possible, will always try to select free to play games. To keep that old school feel, the first game we will be playing … Read More
This is huge! Sony unveiled during the E3 press conference that through a partnership with Double Fine and Disney, a remastered version of one of my favorite games of all-time, Grim Fandango, will be coming to PS4 and Vita. Exclusively…. I really hope it eventually finds its way to PC, I can’t justify buying a … Read More
Here we go! Game 4!!
It’s Game 3! Facing elimination, can Lucas battle back from his 0-2 deficit? Will Jason take a clean sweep?? Find out NAOW!!
As mentioned a few weeks back, I got together with some of the crew to play some tabletop games. Now, I’m not veteran when it comes to designer board/card games, but I thought it would be a fun idea to share with you my thoughts and impressions on each game we played. Unfortunately we didn’t … Read More
Who will win Game 2??
If you haven’t heard by now, Lucas has a YouTube channel going, Gamer Ketchup. I highly recommend you check it out. Aside from the usual videos that involve Mike, there are also one-offs, such as “Side Quest”. The main focus of these is to go back and play games we loved from our childhood. Lucas … Read More
Friday evening will be another adventure into the land of tabeltop games. I’ll try to snap some pics of the action and get them posted up here. There should be some new games played that I (Jason) have not yet had the chance to experience. I’ll make a quick post detailing my thoughts as well. … Read More
We are now up and running on Google Plus. Facebook and Twitter aren’t for everyone, so you can follow our zany antics over there as well! You can find us at – google.com/+FluxtaposedPodcast.
With a new episode being recorded this weekend, here is a little preview of some of our news articles. Check these trailers/teasers below for some upcoming awesomeness.
This weekend I hope to be implementing a new theme on the site. I like the overall look of this, but the performance is suffering and that just will not do. Things will probably look pretty ugly and links will be broken until the transition is completed.
My first hand at editing audio in quite some time. Let me know what you think!
There will be some new donations coming to my slice of web space in the near future. Podcasts! Branching out with audio! I’ve wanted to do this for some time now and I’m glad I have the confidence and support to jump in head first.
Should I just forgo shaving and make this a Yeard (beard for a year)? While my facial hair would surely grow to lengths of majestic proportions, I’m just not sure if I could last. Summer in MI can be unforgiving enough, let alone with having a small grizzly bear attached to your face. I’ve been … Read More
Not only do I play the most unforgiving position in NHL 14, but I’m also a Detroit Lions fan year after year. I clearly like to punish myself. Today was another full serving of heartbreak. I found a new savior to relieve the pain. Indiana Jones. Raiders of the Lost Ark is always an entertaining … Read More
I haven’t detailed the ‘ole GRHL much here, but someday down the road I will have to get into it. Either way, we have started a podcast that we are recording weekly for the league. Here was our first go, a little rough around the edges, but oh so fun to create.
Who’s ready to relive the glory days of X-Wing/Tie Fighter/X-Wing vs Tie Fighter!? Pewpewpewpewpew!
The time has come to discuss my gaming focus for far too many consistent years, the NHL series by EA. Not since Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory has a game captured my attention and focus like the world of online hockey. I refuse to waste my time with the offline modes. Any and all effort is put … Read More
Your social media feed has probably already beaten this topic into your skull enough today, but iOS 7 launched to the public. Apple’s new mobile operating system hit the eastern portion of North America around 1pm today with a couple headaches, mostly sever related. I was lucky enough to get my upgrade taken care of … Read More
I am the Lord of Waterdeep! A shot from a recent adventure that was “Brolo Guy Game Night”. Basically, a lot of munchies, some sweet board games, and delicious beer. The game pictured here is Lords of Waterdeep. It definitely occupied most of our playing time and I suggest you try it out as … Read More
In my early and mid twenties, I definitely was dreading the approach of my third decade. In my adult life, all I had ever known or experienced took place in the range of my twenties. I was entering into uncharted territory for the first time. The issue that I, at least personally, imposed upon myself? … Read More
There is a growing list of shows that were at one point, canceled before their time. It seems that animation heads up this list with the likes of Futurama and Family Guy at the top. The cult popularity and unwavering support of the fan base helped fuel a second life for their respective programs. Undergrads … Read More
I decided that it makes more sense for me to have a community page on FB rather than always using my own personal account. Feel free to check it out and like it if the page COMPELS YOU. https://www.facebook.com/fluxtaposed.
The thrilling conclusion of our Shadowrun babbling! I apologize in advance, this one is a doozy. Part 3 Now I can’t remember where I first heard the news, probably Twitter, that they were launching a Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter. I remember messaging you about it, but weren’t you already aware of it at that time? I … Read More
Part 2 of the thrilling Shadowrun conversation I had with the amazing Lucas Rose! Part 2 Now with Shadowrun, I cannot honestly say that I was fully aware that it was set in a cyberpunk world. To add to that point, until I sat down to think about the points I wanted to talk about … Read More
We may never get the third installment of the game, but at least we have this! Courtesty of YouTube’s Geek Week and CorridorDigital. Check them out on YouTube and, Facebook.
I’ve always been a sucker for any and all things Muppets. I was thrilled when Jason Segel was involed to get 2011’s “The Muppets” out. My initial impression isn’t as positive on this one YET, but it is only a trailer. I will still watch it though, without a doubt. Here’s the trailer for the … Read More
I decided to meet up with my good friend Lucas a few weeks ago and discuss all things Shadowrun. The conversation was pretty lengthy and it generated even more blog content than I was expecting. Blah blah blah, I basically needed to break it up into sections. So here is the first. Part 1 Hudsonville … Read More
Have an extra 5 minutes? Watch this stop-motion Marion animation. You won’t be disappointed!
Just got back home from watching The Conjuring. If you have the chance to see it, you definitely should. It’s not campy. The plot moves along at a great pace. There are some great “scare” moments placed throughout the film. Hopefully, you don’t have a Douchey McDoucherson that wants to talk and make jokes throughout … Read More
The site is back up! <hooray> I’m in the process of rebuilding some pages and adjusting settings, so hold on… I’m in the process of building a rather large post that will contain some substantial content. Here’s a preview for now.
Knowing that the iOS library for games was pretty vast, I had yet to play anything on my iphone that really grabbed my attention. Browsing the selection of apps, using the charts and features as my guide, I finally decided to download #sworcery. Before I get too far into it, let me cover some of … Read More
So after a completely demoralizing and absolutely catastrophic loss to the St. Louis Blues last night, I need to get my mind onto something positive. Let’s talk about beer. As previously mentioned within these heralded pages, I brewed an imperial stout about a week ago. This was my first batch after a brief hiatus from the hobby. … Read More
On a cold and rainy day in January, also known as today, my wife and I made the short trip to the Rockford Brewing Company for lunch. Now much like any new brewing establishment, I have this urge in my very core that screams out YOU MUST VISIT. So I had been looking forward … Read More
Lucas and I are well underway with my newest brew. Expect a full write-up afterwards but we are fully expecting some delicious results. Brewing FTW!
I made my first ever yeast starter yesterday evening. Having growlers around the house definitely came in handy. Made sure everything was clean and sanitized, 20 minute boil, chilled it back down, and now the yeast cultures are doing their thing. You can’t see much in the picture due to the photo quality and … Read More
I am brewing. I will post some pictures. There will be an EPIC write-up following. Prepare for NEVERWINTER STOUT.
Why does this page exist? What am I doing on this slice of webspace? I’ve often wanted to have some form of creative outlet. A space that I could control. Something that would satisfy my desire to create, to share, and to voice my opinion. Those are just a few of my intentions for this … Read More
It’s been a big weekend. A lot has been accomplished. Walking Dead has been completed, one hell of a thrill ride. I’m brewing an imperial stout next weekend, but by far the biggest news…. Hockey is back!
Finally going to get started on this thing….wish me luck.
