Episode 52 – Our 1 Year-Anniversary Not-So-Special Special


It our 52nd episode + 1 year-anniversary this week, so to celebrate we recorded this episode while broadcasting to a throng of 3-4 fans via Ustream (the unfortunately-watermarked video is archived here). Other than the livestream videocast, we’re up to our usual low-key mayhem as we vow to talk about Dishonored without spoiling any mid-game story stuff (that goes about as well as you might expect), we read off GrumpyTurtle‘s rules for the Boy Howdy Podcast Drinking Game*, manage to discuss Cabin in the Woods without spoiling too much, and then bukkake all over ourselves about Michelle Rodriguez, The Warrior, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Chris Ware’s Building Stories and Estelle’s “American Boy”.

In the Geek Week in Review Department we’ve got: the destruction of Big Tex, the revolving door at Irrational Games, Bill’s love for this gif of a raccoon being thrown out of a monkey pen, and our love of the Victorian whale-punk world of Dishonored inspire some musings on what the hell went wrong with the Fable games.
