Toss a coin to your podcasters, as Nate, Samantha, and James discuss Netflix's adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's The Witcher.  Starting with a discussion of how this franchise first came to be widely known outside of Europe, we discuss the games that popularized the books (most of which were not translated into English until after the games came out), and the books that are finally starting to get adapted to television.  Join us as we explore the themes of this show.

Episode 109 - More MMOs, MMO Problems

In this episode, James makes his triumphant return to the podcast to discuss a longtime passion of his: MMOs!  Nate and James spend a solid hour (and then some) discussing their personal history with MMOs, how these games have helped them stay connected with family or develop new, long-lasting connections with new friends!  From EverQuest to World of WarCraft, from Guild Wars to The Old Republic to Final Fantasy XIV--with a few short detours along the way--this episode is a celebration of great memories from our time playing MMOs.

There is a brief mention of the current City of Heroes kerfuffle.  Nate tells a great story about Eve Online.  James tells the story of how he ragequit EverQuest.

Also, Nate learns about Goldshire.  He completely forgets to share his own story of debauchery from Guild Wars 1.

Episode 107 - Reading, Watching, Playing: We Talk About The Umbrella Academy, The Broken Earth Trilogy, 7 Days to Die, Batman: Arkham Knight, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and Glass

This episode apparently fell through a hole in time and was lost for a while!  It's okay, though. We've reversed the polarity of the neutron flow and managed to get it up and running!  Samantha, Jay, and Nate discuss what they've been reading, watching, and playing lately.  Samantha has early impressions of The Umbrella Academy (look for an episode where we talk about the whole show soon!) and talks about a zombie survival game called 7 Days to Die. Jay gives a spoiler-free review of Glass, and a somewhat spoilery review of Batman: Arkham Knight.  Nate recommends The Broken Earth Trilogy of books and he finally goes on his rant about the story mode of Star Wars: Battlefront 2!
