Oh man, now this is exciting Star Wars news!

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (creators of Game of Thrones) are going to be writing and producing a new series of Star Wars films! I haven't seen a lot of information about it yet, but I already can't wait to see this! Game of Thrones has some amazing world building and character development that I hope translates well into the Star Wars universe. I've already forgotten about that movie coming out about a smuggler... what's his name Hope Solo?

The Modern Rogue is a great channel on YouTube where two guys, Brian and Jason, learn about cool stuff. From beer and whiskey to fighting with knives and swords to modern tech hacks, these guys cover a wide range of topics. In this video, they build a game emulator from a Raspberry Pi, and keep it understandable for us noobs to computer building.


The movie IT, but instead of Pennywise, it's Jon's favorite character!

As a big fan of Rick and Morty, and a casual fan of Community, I find myself gravitating towards anything Dan Harmon is involved in. Harmon Quest popped up in a YouTube ad and I had to check it out. So far I've only watched 1 episode, but I love the style of it.

Dan plays as Fondue Zubag, a half-orc ranger, and he has a regular cast that plays with him, in front of a live audience, with a guest comedian. The episodes are then animated and cut between the animation of the game and the players around a table.

Paul F. Tompkins was the guest in episode 1 (who played as Teflonto, Earthscar's village champion and captain of the town's militia. Also a friend, mentor, and role model to Fondue). Looking at the episode list, here are some of the guest players: Aubrey Plaza, Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt and Nathan Fillion.

If you're a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, or just comedy, I 100% recommend checking this out! (It does require setting up a free account to watch)

AdamPFarnsworth gives this a solid "Rad" on the Ghost Scale
This is fun, with very few issues, and is well worth your time.

I recently stumbled upon The Great Tournament when looking for a new time waster (mobile game). It turned out to be a really fun experience! I'd call it a Choose Your Own Adventure book with RPG stats. The writing is tropey (you're a young villager who serendipitously ends up on adventures) and sometimes a bit lazy (a lot of names and places seem to be outright stolen from other books/games), but it was a lot of fun. You start like an RPG, rolling 5 stat points into 6 or so categories, and as you play your actions influence how your stats grow. It looks like a shallow game, but feels like there's a deep game underneath. I enjoyed it enough to pay the $5 for the add free version.

All in all, you can finish this game in a few hours (depending on how fast you read I suppose). I've played through it twice so far, but haven't beat it. I'm going to wait on a third time though, since similar to reading a book, I know basically what's coming next (the choose your own adventure options do eventually bring you to the same plot points, it's just a matter of how you get there and how ready you are).

I definitely recommend picking the game up and checking it out. Here's a link to the Google Play Store version, but I believe it's available pretty much everywhere.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.hostedgames.greattournament&hl=en

"The Great Tournament" is a 180,000 word interactive fantasy novel by Philip Kempton, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

• Choose your attributes and train your skills in order to win in tournaments.
• Become a hero of the realm or use your power to take control over the kingdom.
• Unique combat and character generation ensures no one game is the same.
• Fight for glory, love, or power in the Great Tournament.
• Multiple endings with different story lines.


Throw your hat, land it on someone/something else, become that person/thing.

This is an insane new mechanic. I'd love to find out more about this story line. Has Mario been a zombie of the hat through all the past games?!?

The music sounds incredible. I'm hoping the actual game has a soundtrack like this!

Anyone else completely confused by this trailer?


I only know one truth... it's time for the Jedi... to end

This looks great! I'm leaning back and forth how much info I want on the movie, but in the end, I probably won't be able to resist watching all the trailers :)


Jack and Rich (from Previously Recorded/RedLetterMedia) and Josh (frequent guest) play WWE 2K16 in a three-way brawl in The Battle of The Ladders. Jack and Josh have created characters that look like the two of them and Rich plays an actual character. It's stupid and hilarious. Enjoy!


Edmund McMillen worked on both Super Meat Boy, The Binding of Issac and Gish. Rich plays Gish (badly) and Jack, Rich and Jay all talk to Edmund about everything under the sun. The topics range from bad movies to Chick Tracks to Neil Breen to everything else. It's a fun listen (I recommend it mostly as a podcast as Rich is just playing Gish)


From the December 7th live Twitch stream, Jack, Rich, and Jay Talk with Edmund McMillen who helped make such games as Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, we talk about Gish and indie games, dead baby dress-up, Indie Game the Movie, Isaac as the go to bathroom game, Neil Breen, so much green, watching bad movies vs Soft Core, spooky stuff, Religion stuff, Chick Tracks, Miami Connection, more bad movie talk, backlash, Isaac’s Religious themes, Microwave Massacre, is Breen real, The Toxic Avenger, Troma, The Pit, Event Horizon, Scary Movies, Edmund worked on Braid, -- Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/previouslyrecorded_live
