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 looks back at the Disney classic, Flight of the Navigator. Can this nostalgia inducing film about time travel and a “cool” alien robot friend hold up today? Will this poor attempt at remaking E.T. (AGAIN) make Steven Spielberg ill? ‘Compliance.’ vs ‘Awkward PeeWee Herman Laugh’, which will break you first? It’s an 80s kid’s dream power fantasy juxtaposed with horrifying abandonment issues! You can’t lose! 10,000 thumbs ready for, Flight of the Navigator!
All this plus Caleb’s bath time hot line, the invention of E-Sports, and a new Movie Game Gauntlet on this Issue of Red Six to Golden Corral.
This week the crew of Red Six pay their tithes to the Marvel Cinematic (Church) Universe and check out Guardians of the Galaxy 2. But before they get into the only Marvel Movie that looked good besides Thor: Ragnarok is a new Movie Game Gauntlet. This week Caleb is guessing the movies of Gary Oldman with hopes of stopping his further decent into what has been called a truly embarrassing showing on his part this season. A walk through a beer fest and more with the Guardians of the Galaxy. I love you Tazerface.
But the meanest thing that he ever did Was before he left, he went and named me “Taserface”
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral takes on Free Comic Book Day 2017. Joined by Jeff Provine, the boys go on a journey to a variety of comic book stores on their quest to discover the meaning of Free Comic Book Day.
Thanks to all the cosplayers, volunteers, employees and store owners that really make FCBD into the greatest celebration of comics year after year. Not only does it inspire community and comic appreciation but also does so much to promote literacy in children. Thanks for all the customers and fans that we got to talk to along the trip. Thanks to all the comic book stores that let us come in unannounced and stick a microphone in their face!
Special Red Six Thanks to Jeff Provine for coming up with this idea and letting us live vicariously through his comic book treasure hunt! (Stop trying to use “Red Six” like its some catch phrase. It doesn’t work. At all. -Caleb) Also for taking all the great photographs during the trip! We can’t wait to do this again next year!
This weekend is Free Comic Book Day! Amy gives you the scoop on the annual celebration of comics and comic book stores and then, well, breaks out into song… today’s adventure is a musical tribute to your friendly neighborhood comic book store, co-written with very special musical guest Jason Charles Miller! Our other special guests are the comic fans from around the globe who sent in videos saluting their own favorite stores to be part of our tribute. Thanks, and enjoy!
What happens when the world of Friday the 13th and Final Fantasy collide? The Final Friday is born.
I have logged 100+ hours on Final Fantasy 15 so it was only a matter of time before it made its way into a comic.It also gives me a chance to work out my Tonberry frustrations. It was a mob that was always a standout from the previous games but were known for being the epitome of slow but deadly. How do you translate that into a fast paced free roam game? You Yoda the shit out of them and “spinning blade of death they become, hrm!”. They are the only encounter that causes me dread. I have slain turtles made of mountains. I have crushed giant robots. I fear the robed toads of doom. We can all agree though that classically speaking Tonberry was the Jason Voorhees of Final Fantasy. And I can never skip a chance to kill Caleb in a strip.
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral gets a funky groove going in this packed Issue! After attending Super BitCon the boys sit down and go over their spoils from the convention. Nick has an axe to grind about the “9 Concerts & a Lie” that has been making its way on various social media. The conversation turns to the boys going over their concert experiences and decide to re-imagine the “9 Concerts & a Lie” to “9 Concerts & The One That Got Away”. Grab your set lists and make your way to the front row because Issue 81 is taking the stage.
Also reminder that this Saturday is Free Comic Book Day on May 6th. We are going to be celebrating in style this year as Jeff Provine will be joining us as we go on a marathon to several of our friendly local comic book stores to see how they celebrate this special day in comics.
Our goal is to make amazing, custom, high quality games that you will enjoy playing for years to come. Stories of someone taking a walk down memory lane, or enjoying one of our multi games with family, makes my job more fulfilling. I’m a married mother of 2 children that love to play these games as well. I started out watching my dad play SMW as a kid, and although I was absolutely awful at playing games, I still enjoyed begging my dad to play for me insistently… I’m not too bad these days, but I won’t proclaim to be the master of anything!
This song is from Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. This track was created by Professor Shyguy and sung by him & the Doubleclicks.
(We know “balls” is from that other Doctor Horrible song but we like saying it)
This weeks comic was actually our very first comic written. I personally think it’s really sweet to imagine Vader indulging in his artistic passion for drawing and adapting smoothly to his new life as a mostly mechanical cyborg kill-bot for the Dark Side. I really loved Mathew’s take on Vader actually having facial expressions and not just a static mask. Funny note on this one, the first panel had some room left for Vader to be doing some “heavy breathing” as he drew his favorite pair of robot boobs, but there is a surprising amount of conflict residing on the internet on how to properly write the onomatopoeia for Darth’s signature breath. We decided to go with what is done in some of the comic publications and omit it altogether. But here are a few examples that we found online…
“KtrrrRRrr … Chooo…. KtrrrRRrr… Chooo” (Chew or Cho?)
“Hwooooooo Haaaa….Hwooooooo Haaaa” (Ok. This one, just comes off as Al Pacino from Scent of a Woman)
“shkssssshhh shksssshhhhh” (Definitely a flat tire)
“Kriisshhhh…… Whoorrreeeee…..” (This one slays me.. I mean.. is he calling Chris a Whore??)
