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 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 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!
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral is joined by Cory J Phillips and Aaron Michael from Take One Improv to discuss the finer points of improv comedy and being exceptionally photogenic. Take One performs at conventions and various events around the U.S. entertaining audiences with hilarious improvised games and dangerous amounts of audience participation. Having honed their craft for years the troupe skillfully delivers a memorable and raucous performance every show. Though actors through and through, Cory and Aaron are also connoisseurs of many geekdoms. This becomes especially apparent when the Super Nintendo Classic (SNES Classic) becomes a topic of conversation as the boys look forward to the September release. Fallout, Star Fox, and good times in this Issue 90 of Red Six!
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.
I think every table top role playing group has that one “member”, the one who is all too willing to help the group immerse into the fantasy. I have definitely been that guy for a couple of play groups. All you need to play is some friends and some rule books (and the rule books are optional, imo) but that was rarely enough for me when I was Dungeon Mastering. I have employed many tactics to help the players “get into the mood” from playing Fantasy Adventure movie soundtracks, dimmed the lights and lit multiple candles for eerie illumination, provided maps to dungeons on coffee soaked paper with burned edges to “age” the paper, provided food that I felt was appropriate for adventurers to eat (instead of pizza/mountain dew it was cheese/Hawaiian rolls and cider) and on one rare occasion I showed up in costume. It’s possible in the near future I will be getting to DM some Pathfinder for Caleb and Gal’s group. Running a role playing group can take a lot of time and effort but the end result can make memories that you will carry your whole life. Not all of them, but you’ll damn sure be more likely to remember the fate of your character when said fate is being decided by a chubby guy in an executioners cloak lit by candle light with Braveheart playing in the background!
