It’s just me on this week’s episode, so I am giving some thoughts I have regarding the Nintendo Switch, now that I’ve had a few months with it. Games discussed include Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (no spoilers), Puyo Puyo Tetris, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and Snipperclips.
In this week’s episode, we’re focusing on book 5 of The Dark Tower series, Wolves of the Calla. But before that, we’re spending a little bit of time talking about some games that caught our attention at E3, and Maggott is featured in “Better Know an X-Man.”
In this week’s episode, we’re discussing Assassin’s Creed, games and movie. That also leads us to a discussion on why we think movie adaptations of video games are frequently not critically and/or financially successful. Revanche is featured in this week’s “Better Know an X-Man.”
In this week’s episode of Podicus Wrecks, we’re discussing Marvels, by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross. Why would we discuss a 23 year-old mini-series, you ask? Well, because Anthony has never read it, and we felt strongly that this was a must-read series. It is just a fantastic look at the beginnings of the Marvel Universe through the eyes of a photographer. Also included in this episode, Jacob attempts to convince us to play Persona 5 and Changeling is featured in this week’s “Better Know an X-Man.”
Even though I really suck at multiplayer shooters, I bought Star Wars Battlefront because it was Star Wars. I had a little bit of fun with it for a couple months after release, but I haven’t played it at all since then. Hoping to finish somewhere in the middle of your team is only fun for so long. Also, I didn’t want to spend the extra money on all of the DLC maps, and quickly lost a desire to continue. I told myself that there was no way that I would entertain the notion of buying the inevitable sequel. And then this trailer was released.
The thought of a single player campaign that focuses on an Imperial special forces group after the Battle of Endor really intrigues me. I love side stories like that. I love opportunities to play as the villain. But again, I still have the knowledge that I still suck at multiplayer shooters. The big question for me is how big is the campaign? If it’s 5-6 hours, then for myself, it is not worth the $60 at launch, but we’ll see. Only time will tell if I have the strength and will power to resist getting this game come November, and am able to wait for a price drop so I can play the single player campaign. Or if I see it in a store and impulse buy it.
In this episode, we have a follow-up to how terrible Anthony and J.R.’s brackets have turned out, we discuss writers being duly credited for the stories they write (2:09), this week’s “Better Know an X-Man” features Husk (7:32), Jacob gives us a lesson on the convoluted history of Xorn (12:47), and we wrap out by talking about some video games we have been playing (43:28).
In this episode, we briefly discuss our first impressions on the Nintendo Switch, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Logan. Our very first “Better Know an X-Men” segment features Marrow. We then go in depth with our review of Doctor Strange.
