Thirty Six: You’re My Father! – Luke Skywalker (super whiny voice)

SIZE

Recorded June 21st 2015

Father’s Day Hype!  We thank our father for beginning our long strange road of geekery.

We discuss E3 and the games we are excited to play in the coming months.

Seen:

“GAME OF THRONES” FINALE SPOILERS!  YOU ARE FORE-WARNED!    THE FINALE IS GREAT. ****Spoilers start at 21:00 and end at 31:30***

“Jurassic World” is seen by all.  It’s the most popular movie in the world and pure popcorn summer movie goodness.  Hashtag Raptor Squad!  Bryce Dallas Howard gets the Not Ugly award this episode.

Christopher is excited for a new show on SyFy called “Dark Matter”.  It stars Canadian actors you may have seen on other SyFy and CW shows.

Read:  All make the commitment to read “Rat Queens” vol. 1 and 2 by the next show.

Andrew continues his months long slog through “Dune”.  He doesn’t love it but he knows how important it is to finish this book.

Christopher continues with “The Expanse” series by James S.A. Covey.

Played:

Andrew and Christopher play “Destiny” expansion PvE arena Prison of Elders.  Andrew gets the guts to play with randoms via matchmaking.  He also has taken to watching Twitch and has subscribed to “Destiny” streamer Professor Broman.

Patrick is the busiest geek in the world with school and an internship but plays mobile game “Fallout Shelter”.  It satiates his resource management gamer geek appetite.

Christopher plays “The Witcher 3”.  The game is deep and rich and he wishes he could play all the time.  But you know, life.

Trivia:

Second Weekend of Release Movie box office themed.  The Boys come close.

Discussion: Chris and Andrew attend Phoenix Comicon. Chris reports on an impressive panelist.  We both sing the praises of the convention authority for solving logistical traffic issues.  They learned from last year’s disaster.

Seen: All have seen “Mad Max: Fury Road” at least once.  It amazes on multiple levels.  The film is a prime example of the writer’s maxim, “show don’t tell.”  The “Flash” finale is sublime.  The “Arrow” finale disappoints.  We agree the “Ras Al Ghul” storyline was a poor choice this season.
Read: “Rat Queens Volume 1” and “Thor” comics are entertaining, both Chris and Andrew are enjoying female centric comic books right now.  Patrick fails once again to finish “Batman: Eternal”.  Appropriate levels of shit are given.
Played:  Andrew and Christopher play the “Destiny House of Wolves” expansion. It’s the best expansion so far.  Prison of Elders is the endgame experience the Brothers Geek Fireteam has been waiting for. Chris loves “The Witcher 3” so so much.  He has barely scratched the surface of all the content.  Patrick recommends “Marvel: Future Fight” for mobile gaming.

Trivia:

“Game of Thrones” themed:  Name the seven aspects of the one God of the Faith of the Seven?

Both Brothers Win!
