By RevolvingDork

By RevolvingDork

In this installment, Marie and Chris are WINGING IT. The flavor of this episode is probably best summarized with a series of quotes:
  • "I would love a hash brown as big as my face... I mean I have a big face!"
  • "What doesn't make you fat? Celery? Who wants to live that life?"
  • "It looks like his head is two feet wide."
  • "The best thing [Nathan Drake] ever did was get his clothes wet."

In this installment, Chris explains his deep-seated aversion to modern touch interfaces and Marie attempts to figure out what's wrong with his brain. Guesses are made about the future of Nintendo, and then the gloves come off for an old-school "Mac vs. PC" argument.

Trading video games is a proud, time-honored tradition. In the 80s and 90s, kids would trade cartridges with friends to play games they wouldn't otherwise have access to. Today, those same kids trade games to argue about them on their podcasts.

In this installment, our dynamic duo pores over the minutia of Binding of Isaac, Chris explains his One Weird Trick to enjoying media he disagrees with, and Marie desperately tries to figure out whether or not she's having any fun.

While traveling through otherworldly fantasy mountains, it is important to remain mindful that rhinoceroses have exceptionally short fuses. Whether you're driving a jeep through their mating grounds or simply firing machine guns erratically into the air, they can and will do their best to spoil your good time.

In this installment, Marie gets chased by rhinos and has a swearing problem, while Chris drops shade on the time-honored craft of storytelling and accidentally concocts a much better narrative direction for Far Cry 3.

So, what's the deal with Sauron? Is a guy with the title of "Dark Lord" allowed to wear reflective clothing while bicycling?

No. I'm better than this. I will not dive headfirst into a poorly constructed Seinfeld parody in 2014. I'm so very sorry.

This week Marie and Chris discuss their time playing Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

What's up with that guy and orcs?

RevolvingDork Hypercombofinish Podcast #7: Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, fighting games
Mon, Oct 06, 2014 12:11pm EDT
By RevolvingDork
This week's podcast comes in at a svelte 22 minutes as we experiment with a shorter, more focused show. Don't worry, though -- we still manage to veer off on a few wild tangents.

This installment is centered around the launch of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, which is the latest game in a long-running series that Marie has never played(!). Topics discussed include the appeal of Smash Bros., goals, motivations, hopes, and dreams.
