Episode 71 - Hey! Listen! #7 - Deadpool Movie Spoilercast



Today we talk about everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth -- Deadpool. Michael and I are celebrating the release of the movie on DVD and Blu-Ray by getting deep into our feelings about it -- what we liked, what we didn’t; what we thought was totally awesome, and what was maybe a little disappointing. But all in all, I think we conclude that it is totally fun and absolutely worth watching.

Note: this is a spoilercast. You have been warned.

Have we inspired you to watch Deadpool? Put it on hold here.

We hope you’ll join us next time for more great geek and gamer-related reminiscing and discussions. And check out the new adult video games we have available to check out at the Duxbury Free library -- including some of the newest and most popular Xbox One and Playstation 4 games!

Episode 70: Hey! Listen! #6: Studio Ghibli



Today we discuss the amazing movies of Studio Ghibli, and Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter, animator, author, and artist extraordinaire, Hayao Miyazaki. We go through our favorites, what we like about each one, common themes that cross a lot of Miyazaki movies, and things that are maybe a little strange. And, very importantly, Michael tries to explain to me the ending of Princess Mononoke and convince me that it doesn’t invalidate the message of the rest of the movie. But mostly, we gush about how great all these movies are!

Have we inspired you to give any of these movies a try? Here are all the Miyazaki videos OCLN has available to borrow - try one, try em all!

Episode 69: Hey! Listen! #5: Batman



Today we talk about that surly epitome of comic book fame -- Batman. Is he a superhero or just a masked vigilante with rage issues? We discuss everything from favorite actors, best villains, and the morality of killing enemies or keeping them alive, covering movies, tv, comics, and video games. Holy podcast Batman!

Note: we recorded this episode before Batman v. Superman was released, so as we say at the end of the episode, we’ll be back another time with our impressions of that movie.

Episode 68: Hey! Listen! Episode #4: Fallout 4



Today we discuss the game we’re both playing right now -- Fallout 4. We talk about the setting, stats, armor, weapons, enemies, companions, and lots more awesome stuff! Neither of us have gotten very far into the main storyline, so this is a spoiler-free, fun conversation about all the factors that make the game so great (and a couple small complaints, because of course). Overall, a fantastic game that is absolutely worth playing for fans of the franchise and newbies alike!

We hope you’ll join us every week for more great geek and gamer-related reminiscing and discussions. And check out the new adult video games we have available to check out at the Duxbury Free library -- including some of the newest and most popular Xbox One and Playstation 4 games -- such as Fallout 4 for Playstation 4!

In this week’s episode, we discuss the great gaming debate: Microsoft Xbox vs. Sony Playstation systems. We give some background on our history with the systems -- including Playstation, Playstation 1, Playstation 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360 -- favorite games and milestones.

We finish with the systems we’re playing now; one of us has an XBox One and the other has a Playstation 4. Will we ever find common ground?!

Note: We recorded this in December 2015, so when we say games are coming out next year, we mean 2016!
