Episode 22: Our Triumphant Return and Marvel Heroes Omega

We took a not-so-brief hiatus to do life things like get engaged and become gym people.  But now we are back, way better and even more engaged. Did we mentioned we are getting married? We have also spent our time away playing some great games! Drew talks about the games he's been playing, Bailey talks about the games she has not been playing. We completely forget to talk about our time at MomoCon. We do talk at length about our experience playing the Ps4 beta for Marvel Heroes Omega. To finish off our epic return, we create our RPG parties solely out of 90's sitcom characters.  Also, one of us is not wearing pants. WE'RE BACK!!

On this special first episode of the year, we take a look back at some of our favorite games, beers, tv shows about gay figure skaters and movies that are Star Wars.  Then, we answer a lot listener questions.  Bailey gets deep (you'll hear) about one question in particular.  Grab a warm spot next to the fire, put on your favorite headphones, grab a cold one, and listen us ramble for a little over an hour.  Happy New Year!

Episode 19: Final Fantasy 15

On this episode, Drew lands the opening but Bailey really messes up the ending.  We drink some delicious Scottish Ales delivered from Drew's brother in Wisconsin then get into a relatively in-depth (but slightly spoiler free!) discussion of Final Fantasy XV.  We bitch about game combat but bascially rave over everything else in the game....especially Gladioulus, Cindy and equally sexy looking food.  Also featured: Boo the Cat, an argument over losing a card game, and a lot of great listener questions.

In this episode, we drink fancy Terrapin beers, reminisce on a rather interesting day at Gamestop, and talk a lot about some aweome games we've been playing.  Those games include but are not limited to Battlefield 1 and World of Final Fantasy. Bailey makes a startling announement and has some cosplay inspiration. Drew drowns A LOT of people and serves up a little Maine Justice. Listen all the way to end, folks, this episode is a doozey.

We are finally making our triumphant return after several months away! A combination of conflicting schedules, a month-long "cleanse," and flat out laziness kept us from recording but we are back and better than ever. During what is our longest episode to date, we discuss our recent trip to Dragon Con in Atlanta.  We will cover our favorite costumes, favorite vendors/comic artists/panels, things we loved about Con, things we regret not doing and give some tips for people new to Con.  Then we answer a small backlog of listener questions. It really is a very long episode. We're BACK!!
