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 is joined by Amber and Anthony, two incredibly fun ambassadors of table top gaming. Avid fans of Dungeons & Dragons as well as being members of the D&D Adventurers League (DDAL) these two clerics at heart also organize Extra Life at Game HQ, which brings gamers together for 24hrs of table top gaming with proceeds and donations going to the Extra Life charity. The good times roll a natural 20 when the gang discusses Game of Thrones heroes as a D&D adventuring party and thar be dragons in a special edition of the movie game gauntlet. Dragons, Dixit, demogorgons and sexy gelatinous cubes are ahead so grab life by the dice-bag and prepare yourself for adventure!
A big special thanks to Amber and Anthony for coming out and sharing their love of the hobby with us. If you are in the Oklahoma City area be sure to support a great charity by attending the Extra Life at Game HQ, October 6th starting at 8pm and ending October 7th at 8pm.

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!

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.
