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.
In this week’s episode, we’re finally talking about the Nintendo Switch. We give our thoughts on what we saw in Nintendo’s Presentation.
It’s another video game focused episode. J. R. goes into his first thoughts on Pokemon Sun and Final Fantasy XV. Anthony talks about his experiences with the Baulder’s Gate series and Darkest Dungeon. There are also brief discussions about gameplay vs. story, if they have ever bought a console because of a single game, and a go to game for when they just need a distraction.
In this episode, we discuss our thoughts on the Warcraft movie. We also talk briefly about the Cars 3 trailer, and why we found it interesting.
