Episode 30: Two Baldwins Deep (ft. Giovanni Colantonio)

The 1993 film Super Mario Bros is notorious for 1) being very bad, and 2) inadvertently creating a sub-genre of crappy movie adaptations of popular video games. So this week, we’re finally going to right this wrong and re-shoot the Mario Bros movie the right way. Problem is, we don’t actually create new concepts, we just steal from the likes of Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, and...the dudes from Super Troopers. Thank God we brought in guest expert Giovanni Colantonio to help pen this masterpiece.

You can listen to more of Giovanni talking about video games on Left Trigger Right Trigger, or check out Fullmetal Bazinga, an improvised science-fiction audio drama based on the final season of the Big Bang Theory!

SIDEBAR: Hulk Ruffalo and The Big Thorbowski

**HUGE MASSIVE SPOILER WARNING FOR AVENGERS: ENDGAME**

The release of Avengers: Endgame marks the end of an 11-year saga. A saga which, quite frankly, many of us thought would never actually work out. But much like our 20s (excluding Matt), the Avengers saga is done, and we are now left only with one underlying question: What happens now? The boys spend their time sharing their thoughts about what’s next for the MCU, as well as impressions and hot takes after seeing the movie.

Episode 29: In Between Pennywise Thighs

The Top Generals of the World’s Military need our help! The R&D department of Debate ThisI Corp. has been tasked with developing a new weaponized vehicle, so naturally we’re going to pull blueprints from games because that is a totally normal thing to do. Instead of boring old helicopters, how about the AV-49 Wasp from Halo? Why drive that tank when you could fire napalm from a reinforced ice cream truck? Bomber planes not providing the ummph you need? This warp star is guaranteed to provide much more explode-ier results!

Episode 28: Agent Kirby’s Pillow Palace

DC’s Blackest Night arc in the mid-2000s finally accomplished the thing that 30 years of comics preceding it couldn’t—it finally made the Green Lantern cool by adding other Lanterns of different colors of the spectrum. So we decided to overlay some of our favorite Smash Bros characters onto these lesser-known Lanterns to make some truly unstoppable forces. We’ve got a zombified R.O.B. that worships death, an Incineroar with rage-induced bloodfire vomit, and everyone’s favorite eldritch horror, Kirby!

Episode 27: Gyrados Jim’s Gyrados Gym for Gyra-Bros

A trainer’s first Pokemon is arguably the most important impact on how their fighting style develops and more importantly how they grow as a trainer and as a person. So naturally, the Pokemon that best map onto our personalities are a goopy snot dragon, a swole fish with large calves, and a metallic pangolin walled off from emotions. Fortunately, Tom Zalatnai from Up for Discussion and Blasting Off Again stopped by to remind us that there is good in the world, and that a Pokemon can be used to improve society and are not just for Instagram fan pages.

Episode 26: Butt Thwomp Nation

Despite the fact that we’ve made it abundantly clear that we don’t know Science, our field team at Debate This Labs are studying the various colors of Yoshis to answer one very important question: Which color of Yoshi is the best? Is it the fire-breathing red yoshi, the flying blue yoshi, or the butt-thwomping yellow yoshi? There can only be one champion in the ensuing Yoshi Race Wars, because those are the imaginary stakes we’ve established today.

Episode 25: Hold That Conference Call, I’m Jungling!

We here at Debate This Corp, LLC, want to make a game but we don’t really know anything about game development. But there is one thing we do know about, and that’s Corporate America. So we would like to present to you, dear listener, our pitch for a massively-multiplayer online RPG based in the world of 9-5 office jobs. You know how cool it is to shoot fireballs from your hands? Well what if instead of fireballs, those were witty social media posts and JIRA tickets?

Episode 24: Talkin' Tungsten

It is the year 20XX. Gigantic monsters have appeared from the depths of the Pacific Ocean to wreak havoc, and so our only option is to build larger robots largely themed around specific elements and/or animals to combat them. The only thing standing between us and absolute destruction is the combined power of Flash Man, Guts Man, and Armored Armadillo. We’re screwed.
