Ryan and Jesus are the only survivors of the wedpocalypse that happened this weekend as Jesus ended up getting married. As they try to revive Sean and Rex, they had no time to plan a show. These 20 minutes of video game, beer, wedding, and other things, are the most important things you can listen to this week. Stay tuned next week to learn of the show’s fate!
Another packed house as Sean, Rex, Ryan and Jesus talk about Whiskies of the World, WWE Night of Champions, RE:Play, and FanFair…that was just one weekend. Sean gets to play with Guitar Hero Live, Rex gets his weeb on, Metal Gear Minute happens, 4Chan gets bought and much more! Hot Dad also joins us to talk about his new album that is amazing, and also the fame that comes with making fake WWE theme songs! DEW IT!!!!

This week’s music:
“Our Parents Met For The First Time”, “We Shared a Meal”, and “Fuck You (Riding In Cars)” by Hot Dad!
It’s that time of year again! Remember when people actually used to look forward to Tokyo Game Show? Was it just me? Does anybody actually know this exists or keep up with it anymore? IS THE JAPANESE GAME DEVELOPMENT INDUSTRY STILL RELEVANT TO ANYONE OUTSIDE OF WEEBS AND PEOPLE THAT AREN’T WEEBS BUT LIKE WEEB THINGS? I mean, outside of people who haven’t played Bayonetta and Metal Gear using those games to point out how offensive and backwards a foreign culture is and people who obsessively buy Atlus, XSeed, or big anime franchise games (or don’t but beg for them to come out on PC then wait until they’re on sale 6 months to a year later when they finally do) Japan is mostly forgotten these days while devs elsewhere lead the cutting edge of gaming (HD towns are hard, guise).
Luckily for you, some of us still care a whole lot about Japanese games and that’s why I’ve put together this handy guide to all the great announcements you might have missed this week.
Jesus, Ryan and Rex gather to talk about the Tokyo Game Show, Ryan and Jesus recap the Untapped Festival experience and we all talk about sad Asian commercials. Ming Chen joins us once again to talk about Comicpalooza’s Fan Fair and whipping his periscope out at it, living in an Airstream Trailer, and what Comic Book Men has been up to…this one’s a fun interview. We close out the show talking more about the amazing event that is Re:Play, WWE’s Night of Champions, and our own take on Comicpalooza’s Fan Fair!

Jesus and Ryan talk about their weekend at Amazing, which was….uh…AMAZING! A bit of Force Friday is mentioned, as is more MGS stuff. Starting with our first song break, we cover this weekend’s Untapped Beer Festival by playing the artists that’ll be featured at the festival, and with our special guest, Lone Pint. Blake and Heather from Lone Pint talk to us about beer names, having one of the nation’s top IPAs, the brewing community, and much more. For our third part, we go over the entire beer list for Untapped and throw in anecdotes related to some of the beers on said list. Fun beer fueled long show! (Except for Rex since he can’t drink beer anymore. )

SCN #102: Toby Proctor AKA TUXEDO MASK, Amazing Houston, Bluebell Brand Loyalty, Re:Play updates, and much much more!
Things are back to normal after Jesus’ computer went down last week, and this show is semi-NSFW plus our typical crude humor! This week Rex, Ryan and Jesus are joined by Alva from the Pop N Schlock Podcast because Sean is too busy doing cool video game stuff elsewhere. Rex talks about his first 8 hours with Metal Gear Solid: V, Mad Max gets a mention, Deadpool: The Videogame re-release woes. We then bring our super special guest, Toby Proctor to talk about Sailor Moon, being Tackleberry, has to deal with Alva spilling her spaghetti all over the place, and Amazing Houston Comic Con. Here comes the hate: We talk about BlueBell and how scary the brand loyalty is. Then we just get inappropriate, sorry Tuxedo Mask.

We had a great time at last year’s Classic Game Fest but nothing could have prepared us for this year’s edition. More arcade machines, more guests, more panels, more tournaments, more crazy things to buy… it was incredibly overwhelming, somehow even moreso than last year’s con. Continue reading
SCN #98: Xbone Apology, SCIENCE MINUTE Returns, Pizza Hut’s Weird Menu, Deapool Ranting, and Sailor Boy Fame.
This show has a full house, and also a ton of topics covered. Sadly our guest could not make it so that let us go wild, and we did. Rex apologizes to Microsoft, Jesus thinks a Netflix show is too white for him but is excited for DBZ’s new movie, we pay our respects to Rowdy Roddy Piper, and unfortunately unleash SCIENCE MINUTE once again. We found a weird Pizza Hut menu and that shows our old age seeping in as we rant about the youth of today’s entertainment. As we recorded this, the Deadpool trailer hit and we discuss it….it’s not pretty, we talk about Houston’s Sentai Filmworks being on Toonami, and lastly, some Sailor Moon stuff. Phew. Just remember we love you.
Music this week:
Roddy Piper’s Theme – R.I.P. Rowdy Roddy Piper
