Cajun has gone missing this week, we would have sent a search party looking for him but we don’t have those kind of resources. Instead of the whole search party thing, Brandon, Damian and Chris decided to take the reigns of the show to bring you all things geeky in their worlds. Get ready to jump right in and check the segments and timestamps below for all that information we know you yearn for with a lot of character voices this time around:
In Our Queue (3:16): this week features Damian’s Alien: Covenant review. Before all that the real question is, is Damian Predatoring on Aliens? The review is deep in form as it involves a lot of character designs and plot points along with some discussion on some of the previous titles. It may even be that Ridley Scott didn’t hate Alien: Resurrection as much as he claimed. We also get Master of None Season 2 review. There’s some spoilers here as well, including some cupcake talk.
Game On (20:57): Portal Knights gets a full release review, Brandon to profess his love for Lo Wang’s Shadow Warrior 2. You’re probably not really surprised by that and that’s totally okay in our books. Sometimes a man just has to love a Lo Wang character archetype for the laugh out louds.
