Coin Operated 190: Littlest Lumber Jack

Lumber Jack

Brian has embraced his new Nickname given to him by our YouTube buddy isuckcalfmuscles; The Littlest Lumber Jack. With that new nickname he will try and grow his beard as big as he can because the harsh winter days of Florida are coming. Bringing in these Winter Days were the Thanksgiving and Black Friday where the boys went and saw family. They did a little Black Friday shopping online and traveled for the majority of it.

Avengers

What Nerd Podcast isn’t complete with out a little talk about the Avengers Infinity Trailer where Pittsburgh Nerd Podcast talk about it as well. We see Bearded Cap which is awesome because Chris Evans looks hot in a beard, Scarlet Johansson as a Blonde Widow  and the biggest question question what is up with Thanos. We mostly talk about that because we know everyone has over analyzed and we don’t want to be those guys.

    Coin Operated 189: California Love

    California Love

    California is where Cody came back from his trip. He went to have fun at Disneyland especially on Mr. Toads’ Wild Ride. He also walked in the Super Hero Races being held that weekend.

    The main draw of Disneyland compared to Disney World is the older rides and the more compact park. He really enjoyed how everything was in a smaller space and the seamless blend of each land.

    Beer and Brian

    While Cody was in California, Brian stuck around in Orlando and got his beer on for the Orlando Beer Fest. He got the VIP to be able to drink early and enjoy some of the best beers before they ran out. His favorite Beer was a Peanut butter and chocolate Porter and he hated the #whitegirlwasted pumpkin spice.

     

     

     

    Justice League and Battle Front

    We liked Justice League but hate EA. Like everyone else we joined the hating EA bandwagon. We talk about how EA a publicly traded company could care less about upsetting people and because they only answer to their stock holder.

    Justice League was great. We enjoyed the movie because it was a pretty simple Super Hero Flick.

        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.

                    Coin Operated 183: The Few

                    Coin Operated 183: The Few

                    This weeks episode is brought by the word The Few.

                    We talk about how much hell it was for people to try and obtain the Pre-Order for the Super NES Classic. The Few of them that were available were made difficult to obtain because of the Bots and the random release time. Best Buy and Amazon did it in the wee hours of the morning and the other around 1pm EST. ToysRUs did no pre orders and is doing first come first serve.

                    The next thing that was limited in our neck of the woods were eclipse glasses. These are needed to see the once in a lifetime event of a total eclipse. We tried to secure one and sadly had to bum some off of people to get the this eclipse. Orlando only got a partial eclipse. So at least we got that going for us.

                    We talk about one of the Few new characters that were announced for Injustice 2 and Brian loves their intro video. Its a Dark Horse Character with the hand of Hell.

                    Review time!

                    Brian reviews The Few from Image comics(https://imagecomics.com/comics/series/the-few):

                    The Few opens up with a woman running through the woods bleeding while holding a baby in her arms wearing a gas mask. This opening spread sets the overall tone of the book and shows that nothing is going to be normal.

                    Beyond the concept image of Eden Hall holding a baby, The Few is another dystonia future we have seen before from multiple different comics that goes in a circle with no clear focus or idea and is a bland story from the art to the words. It kept jumping around with the theme and didn’t help set overall tone of development for the characters.

                    Sadly this comic failed to find a voice and have the great characters potential fall because of lack of execution on their development and style.

                    Score for The Few:

                    4 out of 10
