Couch Podtatoes Episode 87: HPH – Movies and More

CP4

We’re back with another episode of “Hot Podtatoe Headlines!” This week we’ve gathered up a bunch of news stories from around the web, and the overall theme seems to deal with video game movie adaptations. We spend a chunk of time on that, and then dive into some of the biggest recent releases, DLCs, and some other smaller nuanced stories that have come up as of late. It’s all over the place, and yet still distinctly podtatoe flavored. We’re also starting to look forward to our 100th episode which *should* be occurring in August provided we don’t miss any weeks between now and then. We think we’ve come up with a cool way to have some audience interaction, by recording live and allowing audience feedback/questions. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, let us know! We’d love to have an AMA or something like that with live on the spot questions and comments from our audience.

Couch Podtatoes Episode 8: Nostalgia

CP4Welcome back to the show. It’s back to normal around here this week, so you can expect the usual format. What we’ve been playing, a discussion, idiots on the internet, and a community spotlight, nice and tidy. We played quite a few different titles and discussed them briefly, and then dove into the topic of Nostalgia. I wrote a post about that earlier in the week, and this prompted the discussion, but we’ve been seeing a trend in the industry of tugging at our heart strings. This includes comics and movies and we talk about those too. Gamestop became an even more evil company and is releasing a credit card, but you should be wary of the pitfalls! Lastly, we take a look at a community post about stopping to smell the roses. Enjoy the present, don’t live in the past or the future! We hope you enjoy the show!
