The Boiz are busy making it werk in the Danktum Danktorum this week. Visited by their new friend and temporary cohost Tim Gunn, they try their best to make sense of the recent relaunches of both Marvel and D.C. with an episode-length segment they like to call, "Linewide Relaunches: Who Wore It Better?" Relish the 4-color masterstrokes of Marvel and the Superman struggles and faux pas of D.C.!
Jyn Urso and her rag-tag group of Rebel Scum have returned with a brand new peak at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Cory has sliced into the Empire's database to decode the whole thing for you and afterward, he reviews the penultimate chapter of Kieron Gillan's excellent run on Darth Vader.
Stoop Kid. Lockjaw. Grandpa. Gerald. Arnold. They made up the fabric of our childhoods, but is "Hey Arnold!" as great as we remember? In this episode of Static Frequency, Cory and Brian discuss how the Football Head managed to afford that sweet room, the walking horror that is Helga Pataki, and how Grandma may have created an eco-terrorist. If you listen to one episode of Static Frequency, make it this one.
Back from their brink after their hellish journey last episode, Josh and Julian chime in on the Pokemon Go hysteria. Everybody is playing it, but is it actually a good game? (Hint: Probably not.) Then, Julian runs down his Steam Summer Sale purchases before diving head first into the classic debate: story vs gameplay. All that after the jump.
