Three nerd culture enthusiasts in the American Southwest discuss their interests in video games, movies, board games, comics, Rambo/Predator slash fiction and all other topics that relate to the lives of these thirty-something centaurs.
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral takes a look back at the 1989 film, Little Monsters. It’s Beetlejuice meets a coked up Robin Williams in this classic tale of boy meets monster, boy realizes he was a monster all along. This film packs it in with not just Fred Savage but also debuting the poor child acting skills of young brother, Ben Savage. It’s Howie Mandel stealing little boys with “cool” buzzwords while rocking a leather vest, what’s not to love!?
Regrettably this “horror” film aimed at pre-teens might have touched too close to home for one of the members of Red Six and the stigma still haunts him today. It’s Brian vs Boy and Maurice vs My Patience in a battle royal from this childhood classic from the late 80s! It’s time to drink that apple juice and eat your tuna fish sandwiches because you’re going to need a full stomach for this savage as fuck flick, Little Monsters!
The week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral commemorate a personal milestone for the podcast, their 100th Issue! It’s a special Issue indeed as the boys regale you with another volume of the always entertaining “Bedtime Stories”. Listen to tales of the gangs early days in the labor force. Be in awe of Caleb’s wondrous story that is equal parts Mr. Bean and Mission Impossible. Drift off to dream land as Nick pays homage to a movie theater that made him the man he is today. All that and a movie game finale with a surprise twist ending, or does it!? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Good night, sleep tight, and pray the Red Six don’t bite.
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral return for the second half of their retrospective on the X-Men animated series from 1992. Part one dealt some heavy blows to our love of this animated classic but will part two be the mutant redemption story? Will the Dark Phoenix saga appease our appetites for destruction as well as Victorian era cosplay?! Caleb has scoured the web and compiled a list of the greatest episodes, will your pick be on there? Can we survive another Iceman episode?! All these questions and more will be answered in this animated finale!
In part two of this X-Men countdown we are covering the top 1-5! 5. Dark Phoenix Saga – Season 3, Episodes 11-14 4. Time Fugitives – Season 2, Episodes 7-8 3. Night Of The Sentinels – Season 1, Episodes 1-2 2. Till Death Do Us Part – Season 2, Episodes 1-2 1. Days of Future Past – Season 1, Episodes 11-12
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral return to pay homage to the classic X-Men animated series from 1992. The Fox cartoon series became a gateway for many viewers to develop an interest in comic books and so this series has always held a place in our hearts. Does this series hold up today? The only way to find out was a reviewing of the top ten X-Men 92′ episodes as sourced by compiling a multitude of lists from across the internet. Once before this same measure was used to great success by the gang when they reviewed Batman: The Animated Series. Will they feel as fondly afterwards? What shows made the top ten? The only way to find out bud, is to pop those claws and cry “MOOORRRRRRPPPH” while checking out this nostalgia filled review!
This week the boys are covering the first 5 episodes counting down from the top 10. Which include: 10. Cold Comfort – Season 3, Episode 15 9. Slave Island – Season 1, Episode 7 8. Enter Magneto – Season 1, Episode 3 7. Repo Man – Season 2, Episode 5 6. The Phoenix Saga – Season 3, Episodes 3-7

This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral is joined by Steven and J.B. from the Gutter Nerds podcast to discuss some of some of the deepest questions from the world of geek culture. A true meeting of dulled minds takes place when three topics of discussion are brought before the panel. From discussing what it says about our modern society that it chooses to place the fictional vigilante caped crusader from Gotham on a pedestal above all other superheroes to idolize. To finding what the effects are from Hollywood’s new found obsession with creating cinematic universes. Lastly the Gutter Nerds, in a showcase of their video game knowledge, give their thoughts on the current success or failure of Nintendo’s Switch. It’s alcohol, deep thoughts, and good friends on this nerd packed Issue!
There is no glowing sense of nostalgia for Mega-Man in my heart. It was a constant source of frustration and ire. I was absolutely terrible at the game and instead of admitting that fact, I would pretend I was angry over insignificant things like how Mega-Man was forced to change his name to appease American audiences because apparently RockMan would not have gone over as well. But now when I see Roll I think how we could have had ROCK AND ROLL! Dammit.
The game rewards memorization and my skills were honed to reaction. I stood no chance.
But can we all agree that the names of the Robot Masters make varying degrees of sense?
*Interior of a corporate board room” Me (Handsome, eloquent): Let’s each share an idea or two for a potential mini-boss for this Mega-Man game we are creating. I’ll go first. I have Cuts-Man, he will use a blade attack weapon. I also came up with another called Ice-Man, and of course he will use ice related powers against our protagonist. What ideas do you have for a Robot Master?
You (Likely Caleb, morlock like): Guts-Man. He real strong. Throw rocks. He my favorite.
Me (Dying inside): Well.. I guess.. if that is what you really want. Just, well, ya know doesn’t carry with the theme like the rest do.. but.. ok.
This really has been a not so subtle dig at Caleb because of his undying love for the Mega-Man dynasty. And it just so happens that Guts-Man is his favorite Robot Master
Loved the 8-bit approach Mathew took with this comic. It really brings the character home to it’s roots and it’s just cool as hell seeing the variation of art style when going back through the comics.

This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral cozy up on the couch and prepare to smash. No, not like that Becky. It’s Couch Co-Op served up as the boys discuss the finer points of building friendships and crushing them in one of gaming’s oldest traditions. From the moment home consoles took root, the couch has been the chariot on which digital gladiators conduct their business of death. New oaths of camaraderie forged and alliances bitterly sundered. Couch Co-op has seen a resurgence with indie titles and large developers taking notice of Gamers who are looking to play together in person rather than online. From Gauntlet to Speedrunners the gang covers some of their favorite couch games from yesterday and today. So gather your friends and pick up the sticks, ready your best smack talk, and load up on beers and chips because this Warrior Needs Gaming, Badly!
Check out our friends over at the Gutternerds for more Twitch streaming and Couch Co-Op!
Girato (26/10/2015): al BEATLES MUSEUM presso IL “MUSEO MILLE MIGLIA”- Brescia Riprese a cura di Alessandro Giambelli in collaborazione con Rolando Giambelli (Presidente Beatlesiani d’Italia Associati) Ideazione, regia e post-produzione: Adriano Fabi Video clip prodotto da : Irma Records /Wing Srl
Caleb has a room in his house almost entirely dedicated to podcasting. By only the strictest definition am I forced to preface the description of the room where Red Six records with “almost entirely” due to the fact that the computer he uses to record and edit the cast also occasionally midnights as a vehicle to play one or two non mobile games. Even using the term “room” seems inadequate when you take into consideration the plans Caleb has for the space. A Podcasting Acropolis seems more of a fitting title but referring to it as such would undoubtedly cause his ego to mutate him into an Akira-infused like microphone bedazzled monstrosity. Therefore I refer to the area as his Lair. He really does have a back up generator ready to come on during any power outage so that, as he says, “no podcast material will be lost during a storm”. It is ridiculous after all the improvements made to The Lair, the custom table, the craft beer with taps, and sound proofing. The only thing we would ever truly be impressed by.. would be a mini-fridge to put our beers and sodas in.
