It’s almost time for monsters & spirits to run amok (amok-amok-amok) around the land of the living! Why not prepare yourself with some horror radio! This month we discuss a little horror film that hit theaters called IT. I also take a look at all the horror television series coming back this October, review Halloween Horror Nights 27 in Orlando Florida and tons of other treats for your goodie bag. But the main star this month is Waxwork Records Co-owner Kevin Bergeron! He’s he to share a bit about the companies new venture into comics. We also talk vinyl and discuss some future exclusives that could be on the way. Trick or treat!
For the second year in a row the fine folks at Tampa Bay Comic Con gave us a panel slot, and we decided to record it in it’s entirety for you! If you happened to miss these fine gentlemen wax poetic about nerd stuff LIVE this time around, here’s everything we covered:

Kingdom Hearts 3, and we made someone rage quit the panel
A huge thank you to everyone at TBCC and those who attended and made our panel possible. Fingers crossed for next year!
This month we’re looking into the Halloween Special crystal ball! I’m talking about shows that are green lit for this October, and the ones that never even made it off the ground. Plus Gutter Magic creator Richard Douek is on talking about the continuation of his series and how you can help. I call out the term “post Horror” that has been getting thrown around lately and top spooks streaming right to your television this month!
Summer is finally here which means we’re getting hit with all the blockbuster titles a nerd can handle! We cover what we’ve seen so far, including our mixed opinions on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL 2 and ALIEN: COVENANT, and brace ourselves for the gaming onslaught of E3 announcements and a slew of fall releases. Lee and Keenan also discuss their experiences in the newly revamped and repurposed PREY title, but only one of them finished it. Make sure to stay tuned until the end to find out who and to hear us talk about our favorite games of all time!
Our very own Seamus Burke was able to interview the Lukas Litzsinger at this years Star Wars Celebration right here in Orlando. Lukas is the lead designer for the new card and dice game, Star Wars: Destiny by Fantasy Flight Games. Listen in below!
A belated May The Fourth Be With You, folks! We’re here this month with all sorts of glimpses into the future of our beloved nerdy franchises. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 may be rocking the box office, but we’ve got all sorts of footage from future Marvel outings such as THE DEFENDERS, THE RUNAWAYS, INHUMANS, and CLOAK AND DAGGER.
On the silver screen, there are trailers out for THE DARK TOWER, THE MUMMY, and KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE. Time will tell if they will be hits, or fodder for future episodes of the newly revamped MST3K which we are certainly fans of.
As if this wasn’t enough of a geek overload, Keenan and Seamus tell us all about their experiences at this years STAR WARS CELEBRATION. Look forward to some footage of their trip to hit the website soon!
We are half way to Halloween and May is the perfect month to drop some major releases on you all! Twin Peaks is coming back to television and I could not be more excited, Friday the 13th: The Game will soon take up all my free time, reviews of Get Out and RAW, great horror comic artist discussion and all the horror surfer rock n’ roll you can shake a half eaten; bloody surfboard at!
Greetings Earthlings, and welcome to another intergalactic episode that’s chock full of our insatiable love for X-Men Origins: Wolverine!
Sit back, relax, and listen to us gush over the incredible Wolverine/Hugh Jackman love letter, LOGAN. There are a handful of major spoilers, so be warned. Seventeen years in the making, this is the movie our favorite Canadian X-Man deserves. It’s so good to have two solid R-rated superhero flicks out now, because VENOM looks like its going to be the next one in line to get the “adult” treatment. In TV news, Keenan and Lee explain to Seamus how IRON FIST was less than stellar and discuss the potential future of the character in the Netflix Marvelverse. To round out the show, we finish up with some talk about how THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD and MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA are great additions to the franchises.
Seriously, what kind of bizarro world is it that an X-Men based movie is better than a Marvel Netflix show?
This summer looks like it’s going to be one hell of a ride! Recently, we’ve been given brand new looks into Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 and Alien: Covenant, the latter of which also dropped a prologue of sorts that’s got us hooked and ready for more. Two ragtag groups of misfits fighting aliens on the big screen? Count us in!
In gaming news, Microsoft plans a reveal date for the Xbox Scorpio in June at E3. Can this new console, coupled with their new, monthly game pass finally get them out from under Sony’s console dominance? If that isn’t enough to get you reaching for your wallet, 343 announced that split-screen will be returning to the Aliens-inspired franchise, Halo, when it’s sixth mainline release drops.
Welcome to the (kind of) first episode of the year! We’ve got a lot to talk about this time, and what better way to start it off than with MORE STAR WARS! Keenan and I finally share our thoughts on ROGUE ONE and ponder on the released title for this years installment, THE LAST JEDI. Also, can Legion and Logan reinvigorate the X-Men franchise? Does GODZILLA 2 have some competition with Anne Hathaway’s COLOSSAL? Will DC’s POWERLESS be better than SUICIDE SQUAD? Probably.
In the gaming world, OVERWATCH is holding a YEAR OF THE ROOSTER event, Keenan talks about his recent completion of FINAL FANTASY XV, and Lee is elated that WATCH DOGS 2 is a massive improvement on its predecessor. Oh, and there’s this new system called the NINTENDO SWITCH, but you’ve probably never heard of it…
The best Halloween show on the net is back for a new year of terror! This month I’m taking a look back at Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s GRINDHOUSE! I also have news on Michael Dougherty’s involvement with the new Godzilla film, a look at CBS’s new Twilight Zone bluray set, Phantasm films to giveaway and more! Time to come out from under the bed.
This morning we have received our first in depth look at Injustice 2 from Warner Bros. Interactive. As you all know, the first Injustice ripped through the fighting game competition back in 2013 and fans have been clamoring for more! Well today, it has arrived!
“Injustice 2 is NetherRealm Studios’ super-powered sequel to the hit game Injustice: Gods Among Us that allows players to build and power up the ultimate version of their favorite DC characters. Featuring a massive selection of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime. In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk.”
Look for Injustice 2 to hit store shelves for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One May 16th. Click the break for screenshots of some the new challengers joining the fight! Continue reading
It’s Friday, so that means it’s new video time! We’re trying something a little bit different here. Instead of the usual gameplay shenanigans we’ve got Lee sharing his thoughts on Titanfall 2’s unfortunate release timing and related issues in the gaming world. Would you like to see more content like this in the future?
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY! 2016 may have been a “dumpster fire” for a lot of you, but we think the video game industry is on the up and up for 2017. We’re here to give you our take on “the state of gaming” and where things are headed for the future. Will nostalgia win over audiences more than innovation? Have people lost interest in VR? What were our biggest disappointments in gaming for the year? Stay tuned for the answers, and keep an eye out on the site for the latest developments for 2017! There may be some giveaways from Keenan’s trip to the Playstation Experience somewhere in there as well…
What’s better than parkour and giant robots? Taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting our formative years. Nothing says “EXTREME” like Home Improvement. Watch as Lee & Keenan dip their toes back into the Titanfall pool.

I don’t think I have ever been this bombarded with so many games in one year! Although, I feel like I say that every year, this one just feels like it brought a ton of gems! I’m talking games I never thought I would be interested in playing. Now they are some of my all time favorites. 2016 also introduced us to VR! I tried them all out, but ended up going with the Playstation VR due to property licenses and comfortably. Do any of these new immersive games make the list? Check out the list below!

I just returned from PSX in Anaheim, California about a week ago and boy the experience is no lie!
Let me start off by saying that this show is FOR the fans! This being my first PSX show, I was really blown away by how much Playstation cared about its long time fans. The throw backs that were announced last weekend were some loved gems. Remasters like the Crash Bandacoot, Parappa the Rapper and Loco Rocco were all playable on the show floor. There was also a free collectible card game going on during the show. Play a game at a booth, get that games card, which is numbered and the series continues at all Playstation events. How cool is that? This is just the tip of the iceberg compared to what Sony had going down on the show floor.
You cannot forget SWAG! The Official Playstation store was on hand and had a ton of throw back items, including an exclusive 1994 Playstation lettermen jacket. Since I never made the football team back in high school, this was an instant purchase for me. There were also a ton more exclusives including jewelry, shirts, statues and figures.
Remasters and swag are great and all, but most come for the announcements! Here is a run down of all the top announcements at PSX 2016.
Monitor’s Bounty is out now for Halo 5: Guardians! This is the latest content release that marks the tenth update for Halo 5: Guardians. We are talking new weapons, armor and skins, brand new ways to play and seek out custom games, and the largest Forge update 343 had ever released. Click below to see everything we’re getting straight from 343!
What a month for movies we’ve had! From Marvel’s newest offering in Doctor Strange, a return to classic sci-fi in Arrival, and magic and mayhem in Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them, it’s been packed. We also got into some discussion on new trailers for things we’re excited for, like Kong Skull Island. So, get out of that Black Friday shopping/violence coma and listen to us wax poetic on this movie-centric episode!

Today Square Enix has unveiled a new trailer giving viewers a first look at what they can expect out of FFXV along with a brief run down of what you might need to know before jumping into this large and sprawling world.
There will also be a free “crown update” at launch. Square has stated…
“The update is the result of some additional time for development since mastering the full game, and provides a variety of updates, minor bug fixes and new features to greatly enhance the overall story and gameplay experience.”
The upgrade provides enhancements for several elements within the game including:Continue reading
Capcom is expecting Resident Evil 7 to sell big in the first quarter of 2017. So big in fact that they have a good feeling it will surpass Resident Evil 5’s record breaking sales of 6.5 million units, which surpassed the 6.3 million units sold by 1992’s Street Fighter II.
Now we all know the main reason RE5 sold so well was because it was coming hot off the heels of Resident Evil 4, which was the first RE game to really change up the classic Resident Evil gameplay dynamic.
Either way, Resident Evil 7 looks to be doing the same. Especially with what we have seen from the Kitchen demo and other demos played on show floors this past year. Including this being the first Resident Evil game that you can play entirely in VR.
Our favorite horror guy, Keenan, is here to make sure everyone is ready for Halloween with some Dead By Daylight gameplay featuring the new 80’s Suitcase DLC! There will be even more entries from this series that includs the Michael Myers HALLOWEEN DLC as well. Drop dead and stay tuned!
Is it just us, or are people yearning for the adventure and flair of the wild west? We dive into HBO’s Westworld and gush over the prospect of the new Red Dead Redemption 2. Keenan replays the craziest episode of Ash vs Evil Dead he’s ever watched, Seamus rekindles his love of Hearthstone, and Lee can’t wait for the inevitable Luke Cage / Iron Fist team-up, all in this new episode that’s bursting at the seams with geeky goodness!
