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 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??)
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral take a look at the myriad of remakes and spin offs coming to streaming and television networks. The boys give their thoughts on why these rehashed ideas preying on your rose tinted memories of the classic television aren’t nearly as offensive as you would first suspect. There is no murder or mayhem but extra heaping helpings of opinion about the upcoming Marvel series Cloak & Dagger on Freeform. Which is unfortunate because I just realized that the series doesn’t actually hit television until 2018. 2018. What a riot.
Spider bites, good beers, crypt keepers and Caleb sadly professing his love for a Hockey legend, it’s gonna be an Issue to catch! SEND IT!
Also this week the new Movie Game Gauntlet is introduced and a surprise twist at the end that will leave you permanently scarred.
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral is joined by Courtney from the Chicks with Flicks to take a look back at Unsolved Mysteries. The series that began in 1987 and ran until 2010 was hosted by the Dick Tracy wardrobe pilfering Robert Stack, and covered a variety of mysteries from crime sprees to the unexplained supernatural. The gang discusses the latest Thor and Star Wars trailers before taking a look at the premiere episodes of the first four seasons of UM that have recently become available to Amazon Prime drones. So listen close to this mysteriously good time Issue because maybe you can provide the clues to solve one of these.. Unsolved Mysteries.
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!
This week the crew of Red Six to Golden Corral is joined by Elijah Bailey and Richard Taplin. Local podcasters and part of Oklahoma’s Blacken Studios. The discussion evolves from music, to movies, gaming, and all things Blacken. Some quick takes about the new Gorillaz single. A new season and perspective on “The Movie Game” begins this week, so don’t miss it! Whiskey, profanity, laughs, beers and friends are packaged within!
Sometimes… it doesn’t look like headphones.. but.. a piranha coming at you? Right?
