This week on Jumping the Shark, Brandon and I are joined by my good friend and fellow geek culture savant, Jay Payne, as we take a deep, spoilery dive into Telltale and Marvel land. First up I dish some quick Out of the Park Baseball 15 impressions and Brandon and I do a quick hit on the miss-step that is The Walking Dead’s 4th episode, then it’s on to The Wolf Among Us for a considered look at the its first full season and how well it matches up with the spirit of the comics (about which Jay drops the knowledge bombs). We wrap up with a long, drooly praise fest for everything that makes Guardians such an amazing, joy filled triumph of superhero movies.

Enjoy! (And sorry I got this posted so late!)

Jumping the Shark Podcast #212

Episode #212 of Jumping the Shark features a surprise return of one William Abner, here to regale us with stories of young basketball legends in the making, Dark Souls 2 PC forays, and a little Walking Dead of the TellTale variety. But first, I’m up with a heaping load of Divinity: Original Sin impressions. The game is one of the great unexpected treasures of 2014 and well worth your gaming dollar. Finally, Brandon is all up in the Destiny beta’s business and he can’t get enough.

Enjoy!

Jumping the Shark Podcast #211

This week the brilliant managing editor of Gameranx.com, Holly Green, joins Brandon and I for a spirited look back at Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, how the series was originally influenced by the original Wasteland, and what we should expect from the August release of Wasteland 2. (Todd’s got a couple hours in the beta.) Along the way there’s Borderlands 2 shenanigans and a very, very important Civilization Revolution 2 PSA. (Short version: Do not buy it. Do. Not.)

Enjoy!

Jumping the Shark Podcast #210

I should have posted this before July 4th week, but it was July 4th week and I was busy drinking and replacing door locks (not an interesting story) and napping. So, a bit late, but in episode 210, Brandon and I get our Telltale mojo on and discuss episodes #3 and #4 of Wolf Among Us as well as episode #3 of The Walking Dead. I also, over a year later, finally complete Tomb Raider so we go deep into what makes that game tick and Brandon ties a nice little bow around his time with Watch Dogs.

Enjoy! (And look for episode #211 to post, on time, next Monday.)

This week Brandon and I welcome back Troy Goodfellow to the show, for a long overdue update on yon Mr. Goodfellow’s happenings and his landing with Paradox. It was also E3 week and that meant we spent our time talking all things E3. Dragon Age 3. Witcher 3. Ubsioft shenanigans. Nintendo’s gambit to keep the Wii U relevant as well as thoughts on the Sony and Microsoft pressers. It’s all here. It’s all good.

Enjoy!

Jumping the Shark Podcast #208

Did you think we’d gone? Admit it, you thought we had completely checked out. But Brandon and me? We recorded our 208th show last week. It’s been up since Sunday night. I’m just the wanker who didn’t make time to tell you about it. But I digress. With wedding shenanigans (and you’ll hear all about those) behind us, we’ll be back on our every other week format. This show features Brandon’s descent in the privacy-free world of Watch Dogs. The man’s inner-voyeur has been set loose and we should all be very, very afraid. There’s also a long look at Transistor and how the beauty of its world enthralls Brandon, but he sees enough short-comings to believe it not quite as awesome as Supergiant’s opening masterstroke, Bastion.

After the break, a quick sidenote…

Jumping the Shark Podcast #207

Episode #207 of Jumping the Shark is a throwback to old times as IGN’s Mitch Dyer re-joins Brandon and me for some long overdue catching up. Just to complete the picture we even wrote a new script for our Bill Abner character, which delivers the goods in the form of many, many musings about Dark Souls II. And there’s plenty more. Hear all about Mitch’s DOTA obsession, Brandon plays himself some Child of Light, and we talk a bunch about the highs and lows of dealing cards in Hearthstone. There’s more Hitman Go and FTL musings, and some old-fashioned TV talk to wrap it all up. Lastly, we’re going to our next recording due to my upcoming nuptials. So, look for JtS #208 on June 2nd. Sorry all, but Mexico beckons!

Jumping the Shark Podcast #206

Alright, listen up. We have a new episode of JtS. It’s #206. That means… well it means Brandon and I talk about stuff. You know the drill. This week Brandon admires Hitman GO to an extent with which I’m not entirely comfortable . He also completes his Bravey Default adventures and begins a foray into Hearthstone (iOS). (One that I, with much regret, have since joined.) I’m also not quite done with my adventures in FTL: Advanced Edition land. This week I get into more of what I think works best and the stuff that feels a little off-balance. (Spoiler: There’s not much.) Finally, we wrap with a big-time, spoiler lamp is majorly lit, discussion of Captain America: The Winter Solder and its affects on the rapidly improving Agents of SHIELD.

It’s all here. Come get some.

Jumping the Shark Podcast #205

Brandon and I are back for Jumping the Shark #205. And there was much rejoicing. This week I go soul-reaping with the new Diablo 3 expansion. Brandon has a Second Son and he’s already Infamous, which I believe makes him so famous that he’s, like, more than famous. He’s in famous. Pretty awesome. (And points for you if you know the reference.) There’s also much talk of FTL: Advanced Edition, even more Bravely Default, and we part with a secret that will shake the very foundations of your reality. The Abner? Yeah, we made him up this whole time.

Minds, blown.

Jumping the Shark Podcast #204

In episode #2014 of Jumping the Shark, trust issues abound as Brandon and I sink into the hope-free and forlorn streets of the latest from Telltale Games. The spoiler lamp is firmly lit as we talk about episode 2 of The Wolf Among Us and the second season’s second chapter of The Walking Dead. Why is The Wolf so angry? Is Clementine one of the best characters currently going? Which of these two fine games is doing the best job laying out it’s story? Why are there so many twos in this post? All this, along with the resolution to my Diablo 3 fiasco, is in store for you this week! (Again, the spoiler lamp is lit!)
