Way Too Late Reviews: Back to the Future, Part III

Part I here Part II here The third movie of a trilogy never gets any respect. At best your movie is a mildly satisfying (if slightly silly) conclusion to the story arc (Return of the Jedi or Army of Darkness); at worst, your movie is The Godfather III. And that’s if your third movie

Throne of Atlantis

Along side my well known fear of zombies and my love of Batman, we often joke about my defending Aquaman as a superhero that deserves a second shot. So when Throne of Atlantis was announced in the Justice League: War series, I was already on board. Putting the new 52

Episode 73 – 99 Elixers

Dailys are like elixers – you need to stock them up and NEVER USE THEM BECAUSE YOU MIGHT NEED THEM LATER. So you beat the boss, and you still have 99 elixers! That said, we covered much more this week than our need to not use our daily powers!

Way Too Late Reviews: Back to the Future, Part II

Part I here Part III here There’s an old adage among novelists: you have an eternity to write your first novel and 6 months to write your second. Writing team Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale spent four years working on the script for the first Back to the Future, polishing the draft as

Alien: Isolation

I may be a bit late to the Alien party, but I am damn glad that I got on board with this franchise. I had never watched any of the movie quadrilogy, nor had I really played any of the games based on them. I was in no way a

Episode 72 – Leliana Is Evil

We bounce all over the place from MCU to being super topical and gushing over a 2 month old game, to even older games! I think we’re a little too dull to be cutting edge! Check out the links below to things we reference in this weeks podcast: Leliana is

Way Too Late Reviews: Back to the Future

Part II here Part III here Between 1985 and 1989 I think I watched 7 movies: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Back to the Future, Goonies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and Ghostbusters. What I lacked in overall quantity I made up for in individual quantity; I have probably seen each

Episode 71 – Nostalgia Games

Most of us have had that moment where you are playing one video game or another, and something sparks your memory of when you were  younger playing games, and had that magical quality of nothing but fun. What do you think of people making games just to trigger that nostalgia?

Way Too Late Reviews: Heart-Shaped Box

One of my favorite things about discovering good art (whether that’s movies, music, or games) is when good art leads me to more good art. Such was the case with the recent movie Horns, which I reviewed back in October for Dorkadia. Horns was based on the second novel by Joe Hill,

A Way Too Late Year in Review

It’s been a great year for movies, past and present. One of my favorite things about reviewing old movies is looking at old favorites as well as new-to-me gems and seeing how well they’ve stood the test of time. WIth that in mind, here’s a short recap of the movies I

Episode 70 – Friend Fiction

Charles (The General), Hannah, Jon, and Megan pre-recorded this non-holiday podcast with intention of making sure we have something for our listeners even while we’re out of town. It may have been a poor idea to do so. It’s more likely that the multiple beers ahead of time was the

Way Too Late Reviews: Tusk

Never before has a film stirred up this many emotions. Giddiness at the amazing dialogue, astonishment at the strong, solid acting, unease in regards to the plot, disgust at the reveal, annoyance at the one-dimensional portrayal of women and finally triumph as the drum solo from Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” finally

Episode 69: ARGs

I say the title of the podcast is ARG’s in that.. we do eventually get to talking about ARG’s. Be warned, there be not dragons ahead, but lots of poop jokes. (hahahahaha!)

The Dark Below or Where is this Story Going?

Last week, a couple things happened: my Xbox One returned from being repaired and the first DLC for Destiny was released. It was hard to figure out which I was most excited about, so right after we recorded episode 68 of the podcast, I had my controller in hand and the

Way Too Late Reviews: Paycheck

Was 2003 the year Ben Affleck hit rock bottom? While Affleck has been on a recent tear (for examples, see this Wikipedia list) and landed the coveted Batman role in the forthcoming DC universe, his ride to critical acclaim hasn’t been an easy one. Consider his three starring roles from

Episode 68 – Boobs Against Humanity

Boobs Against Humanity! I think this was a great combination of things many of us love, boobs and Cards Against Humanity! Scroll below for us bouncing around topics like the caffeine we were drinking during the show kicked in before hand.

Cards, Cards, Cards!

This holiday season, spend some time with family and friends with these down and dirty (and really dirty, in the case of Cards Against Humanity) single-deck card games. My love of single-deck card games has been well documented throughout my Dorkadia tenure. Single-deck card games require minimal investment in either

A Brief Look at Assassin’s Creed: Rogue

“I like big boats, I cannot lie.” – Isabela, Dragon Age II Is it just me, or was releasing two different Assassin’s Creed games at the same time a somewhat confusing move? If you’ve been too distracted by Unity to notice, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue was released at the same time exclusively

Episode 67 – Baking a Cake with Handguns

This week we talk about a number of different things including Hannah’s three legged kitten, why Nick thinks Interstellar sucked, the Star Wars trailer, and moral decisions by players in tabletop games. Is it a lot to cover in an hour? Perhaps, but that’s never stopped us before. Besides, that

Tabletop: Game On!

Grab your favorite board game, warm up your dice, and watch out for owlbears in Wil Wheaton’s internet show. There are two things I love in this world that fellow Dorkadia writer Charles Spurr doesn’t get: IPAs and Tabletop. As a dark beer man, Charles reacts with indifference whenever I gush over

Tales from the Borderlands – Episode 1, Zero Sum

Tuesday saw the release of the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands, Zero Sum. After playing the small demo at PAX Prime, I was champing at the bit to play the whole episode and it did not disappoint. Telltale Games has a great knack for these directed narrative games and
