          2 Weeks

          Its been 2 weeks since we have recorded a usable episode. The last one we recorded was from a live stream and it was too much for Brian to edit.

                        Coin Operated 187: Out of Control

                        Out of Control

                        After a few weeks off, Brian and Cody catch up with all the out of control fandoms. We start off on 10/29 with the madness of the SNES Classic release. After that it was out to Tampa for MegaCon and beer. Brian enjoyed and reviewed his experience for that weekend including the can’t miss Jay and Silent Bob Get Old.

                        Fandom Hell

                        One of the themes we noticed at Megacon Tampa and in general was the amount of Funko Pop and Rick & Morty things everywhere. McDonald’s released the fabled Szechuan Sauce and the Rabid Rick & Morty fans went crazy. They are not a smart fan base.

                         

                        Video Games

                        We talk about Cuphead and how much the style and  hardness make it a great game. Brian Talks about how much he joy he is going through playing the SNES classic especially Super Mario Land.

                                  Episode 18 : Barbarians and Badasses, Raging Roleplays and Roll Plays

                                  Aaron, our friend and resident actual barbarian, joins us for an in-depth discussion into the differences between roleplay and roll play and how the two are often intrinsically related to one another. Everyone plays an active role even in their own life but luckily we have games where we can roll stats to suit the role we wish to play, whether it’s stat build domination or putting the character in the character. Don’t let the big words and excellent punctuation fool you- this episode is filled with the chicanery and levels of goblin speak to which you are accustomed.
