The Main Damie Podcast - Extra Life 2018 RECAP: Red Dead Redemption 2, The Quiet Man and MORE!
The Main Damie Podcast is still nursing the Extra Life hangover, but that won't stop us from putting out some A+ content. No sir. In case you didn't know, we just finished participating in our third annual Extra Life Video Game Marathon campaign. We played some great games, some terrible games, some D&D and some Jackbox Party Packs. We also stared blankly at the screen as the hours ticked on, trying desperately to make it to the 25th hour. This week's episode has Anthony and Mark sit down to discuss their feelings on this year's event, ironically titled Season of the Switch. We talk about our favorite parts, where we need to improve and future plans. Listen now and subscribe to the Podcast on iTunes and other podcast streaming services.

The Main Damie Podcast - Playstation 4 Spider-Man Game, Captain Marvel Official Trailer, and MORE
A day late/a buck short Dan's writing/a report This week's The Main Damie Podcast is coming to you on a Friday rather than our usual Thursday and short one member. Yet, we still wind up talking for over an hour. It's amazing how that works. We stumble out of the gate when Mark tries to bring up a conversation that Anthony just can't continue, but then that transitions to an in-depth conversation on Mark's thoughts regarding the new Spider-Man game for Playstation 4. It's a little messy, but this is what we call perseverance, folks. From there, we transition to an even more clickable topic: Marvel officially released the first full-length trailer for Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson. This gives Mark the opportunity to absolutely drag everyone that isn't the 2016 Best Actress Winner and misremember how well Suicide Squad did, box office-wise. We end the episode on a personal note. Earlier this week, Anthony did a deep-dive on offthemark.blogspot.com, Mark's precursor to his time on The Main Damie. In the same spirit of They Called This a Movie's Trivia Game, Anthony quizzes Mark on some details regarding his old blog. As always, be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and be sure to subscribe to us on iTunes. Remember: this podcast is now an every-other-week podcast, with They Called This a Movie Podcast coming out on the off-weeks.

The Main Damie Podcast - Upcoming Movies, 31 Days of Horror and More
Guess who's back. Back again. While we've been off on other adventures, we sort of took the summer off for The Main Damie Podcast. With the fall looming and a new school year off and running, we decided it's time to give The Main Damie Podcast a soft reboot. This episode sees us revisit the past few months of movies, talking about the ones we liked and the ones we missed. We also look ahead at the movies and video games that we're looking forward to. From there, we take some moments to talk about the next coming months of the site. We announce the plans to turn this into a more consistent podcast, releasing every other week, alternating with our other show, They Called This a Movie. We also discuss our future plans for the upcoming 31 Days of Horror, Stranger Damies, and our 3rd Annual Extra Life Marathon.

The Main Damie Podcast - E3 Preview, Solo Box Office, and the Return of They Called This a Movie
It's the day after Memorial Day. You're probably at work; you're probably hungover. Avoid your responsibilities by strapping in for a brand-new episode of The Main Damie Podcast. This episode kicks off with some talk about what we've been up to for the past few weeks. We all went to Vegas for our good friend's wedding, so we spend some time talking about that in the preamble before we get into the topics at hand. We start with Video Game Corner, where Mark lets Anthony and Dan in on what will probably be going down at E3 this year. Will Microsoft unveil a new Halo? Are we going to get an N64 Classic in time for the holiday season? Our guess is as good as yours. That's how that saying goes, right? Speaking of wild speculation, none of us saw Solo: A Star Wars Story, but listen to us ramble about why we think it didn't break box office records this weekend. Racism? Fatigue? An oversexed populace? It could literally be anything. Finally, we finish off this episode with a preview of something that's upcoming for the website. Back in the early days of the website, we had a podcast show "They Called This a Movie", where we watched a movie (usually a bad one) and talked about it. Some of our best shows came out of this idea (and our sign-off is a direct reference to one of these episodes), so we're looking to bring it back in a re-tooled format. You'll have to listen to find out our plans. You can follow us on Twitter and Facebook and you can subscribe to us through iTunes, our RSS feed, and most podcast apps.

We start off by welcoming Tom to the show and allowing him to weigh in on how things are going over at Stranger Damies, our real-play D&D podcast, in which he plays Tiresias the Deceived. We then go right into our lineups for our fictional baseball team lineups. We pull from all sorts of mediums: movies, TV, video games, cartoons, and even an elaborate April Fools' joke.

The Main Damie Podcast - Stranger Damies, 2017 Movie Wrap-Up, and Black Panther
WE'RE BACK!!!!!! It's been a loooong day without you, my friends. But The Main Damie podcast has finally come back with a vengeance. Before we go headfirst into the topics at hand, we check in with each of our hosts to see what they've been up to. Dan got married and Mark got to celebrate a Super Bowl Championship for his beloved Eagles. Anthony doesn't mention it, but he wanted to let everyone know he got a new pair of socks in the downtime. Our first topic is actually an explanation of where we've been this whole time, which has been our newest venture, STRANGER DAMIES, our real-play Dungeons and Dragons podcast. We talk about what made Mark decide he wanted to start this podcast, what we thought about our first few sessions, and where we want it to go. From there, we backtrack to the end of 2017 and discuss some things that we missed. We let Mark and Dan talk about their favorite movies from the past year, and Anthony has some strong words for the movie that left the worst impression on him. Finally, we talk about Black Panther, the biggest movie of the young year. We all talk about what we liked about it and can't help but sing its praises.

The Main Damie Podcast - Mark's Rant Edition
On this on usually rant-y episode of The Main Damie podcast, our fearless trio discusses everything from professional wrestling to San Diego Comic-con. But there is something off about this episode. We start with Mark venting his frustration over the most recent WWE pay-per-view in Philadelphia. He seems unusually upset about the evening he spent at the Wells Fargo Center. After, we are joined by Dan, Mark poses the question that leaves the entire group in shock. Next, we take a trip to Video Game Corner, where Mark again vents on Walmart canceling all "pre-orders" of the SNES classic. And touches on the newly released wrestling game Fire Pro, and why it is different. He also gives an update on his experience with Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. We take a turn and shift our attention to discuss Dunkirk, and Anthony's review. We find out that Mark disagrees slightly with him giving the movie at 10/10. This is when Dan and Anthony grow concerned about Mark well-being, and why he seems rather upset this entire episode. We finish up by discussing everything that we saw and read during San Diego Comic-Con. We mix in DC, Marvel, and everything else in the world of movies and TV that was revealed at the famous event. Thanks again for listening and we hope you come back next week to find out if Mark finally reveals what was bothering him.

The Main Damie - Casting Carnage, Mayweather vs McGregor, and Ron Howard Directs the Han Solo Spinoff Movie
On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, Anthony and Dan wake Mark up from his post-E3 coma to discuss comic book movies, sports, and, of course, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. During our catching up segment, Mark reveals the worst idea for a game show he's ever heard. He concludes that since it will air over the summer on America's most watched network, Dan had something to do with it. Our fearless trio moves on from this abomination of TV, and begins a discussion about Spider-Man, Venom, Carnage, and all things in the web-slinger's universe. They dabble in some fantasy casting, and discuss why Spider-Man's villains are the best in comics. For the first time -- I think -- in the history of the podcast, there's a discussion of a sporting event that is not wrestling. Our infallible threesome dive deep into the upcoming Mayweather-McGregor fight, and somehow the conversation turns into what they wouldn't do for $127 million. Let's just say, we learn some things about our Damiers. They finished with Mark's recap of you E3 in Video Game Corner, and a tribute to probably the best man to wear the Bat Cowl. Obviously, no offense to Michael Keaton and Christian Bale, but only one of the actors to portray the Dark Knight was also the mayor of a Rhode Island town.

The Main Damie Podcast - Video Game Corner E3 Discussion, Wonder Woman, and Television Talk
Welcome back, faithful listeners. Your damies are back with a brand new edition, complete with video games, wedding talk, and even a Wonder Woman review from Dan Aquino. We start off with Mark and Dan waiting for Anthony, as they discuss what they’ve been up to: Dan’s still in the middle of wedding prep while Mark is getting ready to throw some axes. From there, Mark takes Dan deep into Video Game Corner. As this was originally recorded last week, Mark gives his takes on the impending E3 press conference and what he expected from each big name participating in the event. Anthony arrives midway through Video Game Corner, despite Skype’s best efforts, just in time to talk television. Mark’s been watching Riverdale, because of course he is, while Anthony makes some bold statements on where The Leftovers places among his favorite TV dramas of all-time. Dan is still watching Fargo, despite it not living up to previous seasons in his eyes, while Anthony is hoping it all comes together at the end. From there, Dan gives us a quick review of Wonder Woman before he has to depart. On the whole Dan thought it is the best film in the DCEU, but feels the hype has gotten a little too big. (For more, listen to the show) When Dan leaves, Mark and Anthony circle back to television. Anthony’s been bingeing Lost for the first time, killed some time with a revisit to the US version of The Office, and struggled to stick with Season 1 of Twin Peaks, which turns into a discussion of how much David Lynch is too much. As always, thanks for all the listens. If you have any questions or comments, you can reach us at email@example.com, on Twitter, and on Facebook.

The Main Damie Podcast - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 REVIEW!
On this episode of The Main Damie podcast, we return from a busy few weeks to discuss the only thing that matters, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and as usual, we spend more time on it than we anticipate. Before we jump into our main topic, we discuss what we have done since our last podcast, including celebrating the wedding of friends of the site, Nicole and Tom, and also take a trip to Video Game Corner. During the discussions, we learn than Dan doesn't like to be forced to dance, and Mark is upset that he won't be able to kill fashion moguls with fire axes anymore. We spend the second half-hour taking about Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and keep it mostly spoiler-free, but we highly recommend heeding our warning near the end. We finish the topic by going deep into spoilers, and discussing how we think the events of this film fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thank you for listening, and join us next time when Mark discusses what he expects from E3, and what it may mean for the rest of the year during Video Game Corner's preview of the marquee event.

The Main Damie Podcast - The Fate of the Furious Review and Trailer Reactions
On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, we reunite the family as Dan joins us to discuss everything from trailers to the newest Fast and Furious movie. We promise never to turn our backs on this family, unless you disrespect Pacific Rim, then Mark will politely ask you to 'cash him ousside'. We open the show by updating you on our lives over the past few weeks, and we've done a lot of adulting; Dan is in the process of selling a house, Mark just leased a new car, and Anthony learned how to install a light switch. These situations run the spectrum from painless to frustrating, and only one of them included an electric shock. Our opening topic deals with the many trailers that have been released in the last few weeks, and what impact they had on our interest level. The discussion starts with the first teaser for Star Wars Episode 8, and we transition into the new trailers from Marvel and DC. We also may or may not have made a plea for Chris Hemsworth and/or The Rock to officiate Dan's upcoming wedding. Let's just say the trailers topic had a few tangents. Next we take a quick spin, or drift if you will, by Video Game Corner. Mark discusses his opinions on the restrictive Persona Five streaming rules that came down from Atlus, and why it is bad for the exposure of the game. He also quickly discusses the recently released specs for the Xbox Scorpio, which made the system almost a full-step past the current Xbox One. We finish the episode talking about family, and not just any family, but Vin Diesel, The Rock and the rest of the Fast and Furious crew. This can only mean that Mark went to the theater, saw The Fate of the Furious and needed to talk about it. While it didn't surpass the last three movies, this installment did enough to make it an enjoyable time. In the rankings of Fast and Furious movies, the 8th one ranks about the middle of the pack, and if you're curious of Mark's rankings, stay till the end and you'll get the definitive breakdown of the series, and an extremely hot take.

The Main Damie Podcast - Beauty and the Beast REVIEW, Power Rangers, and Conspiracy Theories
On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, we are short one Dan Aquino as he covers his all-time favorite sport, college basketball. Mark and Anthony soldier on without him, and cover everything from Power Rangers to conspiracy theories. We spent too much time on one of these topics; I'll let you guess which one. Mark starts the show discussing his three-hour trip back to his childhood while watching the Twitch marathon of Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. As usual, he dives too deep into the way the episodes are produced, and he shares his thoughts about the show's quality. Anthony joins Mark on this nostalgia trip as they discuss Power Ranger toys, how long they watched the series, and how Mark didn't own the movie on VHS. *Ron Howard voiceover* He did. At this point, we transition ever so smoothly into our main topic: the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Mark and Anthony, who saw this movie at two completely different theaters with two completely different sets of people (we swear!), discuss whether the remake lives up to the animated movie, and if it's worthy of being this generation is Beauty in the Beast. They also spent some time on the controversy surrounding Josh Gad's character and why it wasn't such a big deal. Oh, and Anthony really didn't like a certain former Star Wars actor's performance in this film. We take a quick trip to Video Game Corner, and discuss the failed launch of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Mark theorizes that it may have been rushed so that it would release before the end of the fiscal year, even though it probably needed at least six more months of production. We also update the sales figures for the Nintendo Switch, and how it's currently on a Wii-like trajectory. Despite early evidence, Mark believes that there's no way it ever matches the Wii's lifetime sales (101 Million), and he believes it would be a victory for Nintendo if it only passes GameCube's sales (21 Million). The final topic needs very little set up because discussing it would spoil what we talk about. The topic is conspiracy theories: those that we believe, and those that we find most fascinating. Mark brings up a long-held grudge in his family against Christopher Walken, and Anthony has a trio of theories that he quite enjoys. We would love to hear your favorite conspiracy theories, and whether you actually believe them or not. We will return next episode with the biggest March Madness fan we know, Dan, and hopefully Mark will spend 25 minutes previewing The Fate of the Furious (it's about family, you know). Hope you enjoy the episode and we will see you in two weeks! Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and send any questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

The Main Damie Podcast - Logan SPOILERS! Plus Nintendo Switch and Childhood Memories
On this edition of The Main Damie podcast, our lovable trio discusses everything from remembering the time that Goldberg first won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship to why it was awesome that Logan finally was allowed to chop off limbs. We begin this episode with a throwback to previous topics where we discussed something random that really has nothing to do with video games, movies, or comic books. This time, Mark was curious about what random fact do you remember as clearly as if it happened yesterday. He discusses his 13th birthday (he mistakenly says 12th in the podcast) in which he witnessed Goldberg finally beat Hollywood Hogan for the World Heavyweight Championship, and celebrated with his neighbor. Anthony, with only about 15 minutes of preparation, remembered the first night that he saw a rated R movie, and the exact Simpsons episode that aired that night too. Our trip down Memory Lane brings right to Video Game Corner, and our biweekly look in the world video games. Mark begins this segment by discussing the recent release of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Nintendo Switch, which for the most part has been smooth, but it has had some rather unique issues. He also reveals our intention to expand our Twitch streaming and YouTube presence since we are now fully capable of doing both without worry. As we leave Video Game Corner, we meet Dan and begin our long discussion about Logan. As we warn in the podcast, this discussion is spoiler heavy as we give our thoughts on this terrific movie. Since our discussion took almost half of the podcast, we would say the movie is definitely worth seeing. Without getting into any spoilers here, it is the most excited the three of us have been after seeing a movie. There's no contrary opinion; it is a unanimous decision that Logan is not only one of the best comic book movies in recent years but in general, a good movie regardless of genre. Editor’s Note: You can read our Logan review HERE as well. We thank you for listening, and hopefully next time we will be as excited about our topics as this one, but there's a better chance we will return to our cynical nature. It's obviously why you love us. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest updates, including Twitch stream times and movie reviews. Like what you hear?

The Main Damie Podcast - Changes to the Site, Video Game Corner, The Batman Solo Film
After a winter's worth of hibernation, the crew at the Main Damie awaken with a new episode of the podcast just in time for Spring. We take a bit to get back into the groove but after a few minutes, it back to the same old dumpster truck on fire. We touch on our old stand-bys -- video games and comic book movies -- but we also update everyone on our new endeavor: video content. Now that they are all "gamers", the gang spends the first section of the podcast talking about video games. Mark opens with an update on the site's expansion into Twitch Streaming, and what the future holds for the YouTube channel. He hopes to increase the output of the two channels now that everyone has more experience with this type of content. If you are not already, follow us on twitter (@themaindamie) for updates on everything Twitch and YouTube. We then take a trip to Video Game Corner where the release of the Nintendo Switch has crept up on all of us. With so many new releases since the last episode, Mark focuses on those that have been more noteworthy, including Resident Evil VII and Horizon: Zero Dawn. He also introduces a new segment which focuses more on the news side of the industry, and spends some time discussing ZeniMax's in court win against Oculus. We also dive deep into Anthony's new love of GTA V. The second half of the episode is spent talking about upcoming comic book movies with most of the focus on the upcoming Ben Affleck Batman solo project. Since he is an expert on all things Batman, Dan beautifully breaks down the reasons behind the switch in directors and the hope that they may have righted the ship in the DC Cinematic Universe. Also, Dan believes you can't screw up Batman, which may be true, but we'd love to hear what you think. Thank you for listening. If you like what you heard, make sure you follow us on Twitch and subscribe to our YouTube Channel. We are at the beginning stage and we'd love for you to come along for the ride.

The Main Damie Podcast - Fantastic Beasts, Video Games, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Our brave leaders return from the Fortress of Solitude to deliver a new episode of The Main Damie Podcast. After an extended break, Senior Editors Mark and Dan, along with Editor-in-Chief Anthony, are back and better (?) than ever. We begin the episode with a quick catching up segment where we learn more about Mark's streaming over at Twitch.tv/themaindamie, Dan's movie adventures and Anthony's one trip outside the house. Most of the discussion surrounds Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and the two different reactions from Anthony and Dan's significant others. After talking about Eddie Redmayne's acting, we take our law mandated trip to Video Game Corner. Mark opens with his early thoughts on Final Fantasy XV, and why it was worth the 10-year wait. The discussion move to a breakdown of The Game Awards (aka The Keighley's), and this weekend's PlayStation Experience in Anaheim. But it wouldn't be a Video Game Corner without Anthony asking about No Man's Sky, so Mark explains what the new Foundation Patch includes and rants on the backlash against Hello Games. We turn onto a small alley near Video Game Corner to investigate why our Editor-in-Chief purchased a PlayStation 4 during Black Friday. Mark congratulates him on finally getting back in to the video game world, and wonders how he's enjoying it after skipping two console generations. Anthony shares his thoughts on both Uncharted 4 and Life is Strange (The Main Damie's Game of the Year 2015) and how he is pleasantly surprised with consoles multimedia features. It wouldn't be The Main Damie Podcast if we didn't discuss comic book movies, and this time we even avoid talking about the Joker. Our choice to discuss this wasn't without merit as Marvel released the kick-ass trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 on Saturday. This leads into multiple tangents that include everything from Fast 8 to Max Landis (we don't even know how). The tl;dr of this topic, we are excited for the 2017 releases.
