GW1 Issue 114 – It’s No Secret!

GW1 Issue 114 – It’s No Secret!

 

Over the past couple of weeks you’ve heard us talk about a kickstarter for a new version of Top Secret, widely considered the first ever espionage role play game when it was released in 1980. Well this week we have an interview with the creator, Merle Rasmussen! We pick his brain over the original game and how the new version, Top Secret: New World Order, came about, plus Kylan finally gets the answer to a question that he’s wondered about for years.  More

    It’s issue 113 and we’re talking about the newly announced 13th Doctor for Doctor Who. For the first time ever, the Doctor is female – so what do we think about that? Plus we chat about the Doctor Who spin-off Class. And we have a bit of geek news and details about some of the announcements out of D23 Expo, Disney’s big convention last weekend.  More

      GW1 Issue 112 – Web-Slingers & Hot Aunts

      Another summer blockbuster opened last weekend, so we’ve got your spoiler-filled review. Yes, another Spider-Man movie is out… is it worth seeing? Is it an improvement on the past ones? Is Holland a better web-slinger than Maguire or Garfield? We talk about all of that and more! Plus there were a few new Comic-Con panel and appearance announcements, Disney’s big con is coming up this weekend and, unfortunately, there were a couple of losses over the past week that we want to mention.

        GW1 Issue 111 – Prepping for Comic Con

        A lot of media companies have confirmed their presence at Comic-Con International (better known as San Diego Comic Con) and panel schedules are taking shape. So we’re talking about the properties that are big enough to get some time at the con and the huge ones that warrant a place in Hall H. But, of course, we have plenty of geek chat and news to hit first.  More

              GW1 Issue 108 – It’s All a Front

              We’re a little all over the place this week, but you can probably tell we had a good time. After a very brief update of our goings on, we get into myriad tv shows we’ve watched from the 80s through to today (and some crazy plot lines), what we like/don’t like about movie trailers and why detailed origin story movies aren’t necessary. We also say farewell to a Bat icon and talk Star Wars costumes.  More

                    There was a lot of television news this week, so that’s what we’re chatting about (well, most of us are… Kylan is mumbling his way through because of dental work). First we cover Oddmall… yes, there’s another one this weekend and it’s outdoors! Then we get into TV, with cancellations, renewals, new shows and a return to sci-fi.  More

                            It’s our 100th issue! Time to do a bit of reminiscing about what we’ve enjoyed and experienced over the past 100 episodes. So many things we never thought we’d be doing and so many friends we’ve made along the way.

                            Then we have details on a great new RPG involving goblins from our pal Robert Turk. Of course, Star Wars Celebration was last weekend, so we need to talk about that a little. And the second half of this issue is a great interview with Aloysius Fox, proprietor of the International Steampunk Symposium.  More

Then it’s on to Oddmall, a new game release we’re looking forward to, some Deadpool stuff (of course!) and a little discussion on bad movies and syndicated tv shows.  More

                                    Netflix came out with the next installment in its Marvel shows this past weekend and, no surprise, we binged it all and want to talk about it. So… spoilers! But before we get to that, there were some interesting news tidbits this week, including a crazy schedule for the upcoming season of 12 Monkeys and a big change in ticket sales for a major convention.  More
