This week Jack stays up late into the UK night to join JP and Sam in DC pontificating. The crew dives further into the Batman event “Death of the Family” and discusses the validity of the Justice League film. They also give their positives and negatives on the surprisingly popular Arrow.

This is a special episode of Film Fans where Sean, Nicole, Jay, and Jack discuss the Dark Knight Rises. It was originally set to air right after the film was released in theatres. However, during the great computer fiasco of July/August, a few episodes including this one was lost and our discussion on the film was not heard by anyone. Until now. Starting the podcast with their general opinions on the movie, the gang then goes into the previous films in the trilogy and discuss their favourite film, and Dark Knight moment. Afterwards, they jump right into the Dark Knight Rises and when Jack seems to be not as enthused about the film as the other three, he is grilled for his reasons why. Want to find out what Jack didn’t like about the film and what the others loved? Take a listen!
In this episode of the Gamer’s Word, Sean and Rebecca are joined by their foreign correspondent Jack for their usual discussion on gaming and the news of the week. Rebecca goes over the new Mass Effect 3 Omega DLC and lists her pro’s and con’s. They then go on to discuss the Museum of Modern Art’s new Game exhibit which displays a wide variety of classic games and modern games. Will this new exhibit work for the gaming industry and lead to more people excepting it as an art form rather than just a hobby or past time? The gang seems to think so. Before the show wraps with the Holiday gift guide from each member (they tell you whats on their own lists for this holiday season, but also shed light on some things that should be on yours as well), they get into a small argument over the term “gamer” and where it applies.
Today we have a special episode of Gamer’s Word, where we discuss one video game in particular, The Walking Dead: The Game. Sean is joined by his friend Dave, and Word of the Nerd writer and Gamer’s Word regular Jack, and they get down to discussing, not just the epic finale that was available for download last week, but to discuss each episode individually and how, if at all, their decisions differed from the next guy. Turns out that Dave was the honest hero type, while Jack was the the heartless bastard. Sean, well he was the balance between both of them, though his decisions were oddly based on random thought processes (ie. love and re-populating the world, and trying to be a good “parent” for Clementine). In the end it was a unanimous decision that his game pulled on some heart strings and made us question who we would be in a similar situation. Verdict: Sean would die, Jack would probably kill him, and Dave would be the leader of the group far away from the other two…
In this episode of Film Fans, Sean is joined by Word of the Nerd folks Honor Knight and Proffitt. They kick things off with the Walking Dead talk, and discuss the shows change from the original source material. They also briefly discuss the newest cast member and the character he will be portraying. Then, still keeping with Television talk, they discuss CW’s Arrow, and whether or not they think it is going to continue to succeed, and if so, for how long. Is it going to be another Smallville, you will just have to listen and find out! Finally, the finish the night with the Why You Should Watch segment, where the gang weighs in on Skyfall, and Sean (the only one to see it) discusses Breaking Dawn Pt. 2, and whether or not the “twist” is really worth the price of admission.
