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 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 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!

This Issue of Red Six to Golden Corral takes a look at the seedy dragon underbelly of online video gaming. This week the boys reveal truths about Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games that the streetwise call, MMORPG. They recount their own addicted histories experimenting with this divisive gaming drug. Red Six has been informed by their legal staff that it is imperative they caution any listeners who have played MMORPG in the past that this Issue might cause nostalgia filled flashbacks to all the good times they had having fun and making friends online while traversing “fantasy landscapes”. Pulling back the curtain with hard hitting pseudo-investigative quasi-journalism, the crew discusses some of the fears of playing games like World of Warcraft (Street name: WoW) as well as Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV. After listening to this podcast, you find yourself wanting to roam a digital desert in search of some beefy cactaur to milk because a Quest Giver asked you to, don’t blame us. You have been warned.
“A Call to Arms” is a song included on the World of Warcraft Soundtrack. The music made its debut in the cinematic trailer for Warcraft III (composed of various Warcraft III cinematic clips) and was first made available as a standalone MP3 from the official Warcraft III game site. The lyrics were written in “rough Latin”, in that they are just Latin words strung together without forming any coherent sentences, but are intended to convey ideas and sounds rather than tell a narrative.
