LucasArts games... A retrospective
Today we are discussing Lucasarts! The video game developer most prominent in the 1990s and who was responsible for releasing some of the most classic Star Wars games. So yeah this is technically another Star Wars episode... Sorry... But Star Wars is kinda like that old friend with whom you've developed an unhealthy relationship and all your friends keep telling you to cut ties with them, but you still find yourself in their basement every weekend snorting cocaine and playing Halo. And besides, these are video games we're talking about today so that's gotta count for something. My co hosts Nathan, Will, and I each selected 3 Lucasarts titles to discuss one by one and cover what makes them so awesome or shitty. We actually had a lot of fun because for all it's missteps, Lucasarts always offered a lot verity in it's games and that made for a wide sweeping video game discussion covering many different genres.

Man Of Steel, Batman Vs Superman, and Justice League
Today is the second part of our Zack Snyder debate, but more specifically we are focusing on his super hero DC movies. So that entails Man Of Steel, Batman VS Superman, and The Justice League, both versions. Nathan continues his merciless onslaught of poor defenseless Snyder while I attempt to defend the beseeched Hollywood director, all while Will remains neutral in the debate like the dirty centrist that he his. There is a lot to say about these movies and the choices that went into making them. Is their dark tone appropriate? Or do they take themselves too seriously? How do they stack up against the Marvel films? Well we had a spirited conversation to say the least.

Zack Snyder... Does he suck? A debate. Part 1.
Today we are talking Zack Snyder. The famous Hollywood director who brought us the films 300, Watchmen, and Batman Vs Superman, just to name a few... But the question is, does he suck? This conversation is a big debate over the merits of Zack Snyder and his directing chops. We really get into it because Nathan has had a big axe to grind with this guy for ages and Anthony kinda likes him. So we have a blast duking it out.
