SIDEBAR: Jon Favreau Is My Stepdad

**SPOILER WARNING FOR SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME**

Todd and Andrew saw Spider-Man: Far From Home and oh my God now it’s time to geek out over it. Does Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio top Keaton’s Vulture? What is the future of the MCU now that the Avengers are gone? Could J.K. Simmons dethrone Rami Malek as our new God-King? It’s very possible all of these questions have answers. It’s also very possible we just spent 35 minutes talking about the now-very-real ship of Happy & Aunt May.

Episode 33: Make America Gotta Go Fast...Again

Oh Sonic...our very fast boy with a very complicated past. He’s been a street fighter, an Olympic athlete, a zero gravity surfboard racer, and even a knight facing off against King Arthur. We decided to give everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog yet another second chance by fixing some of Sonic’s more pained gimmicks. Our crack team of armchair-quarterbacking game designers are proposing massive overhauls to Sonic and The Secret Rings, the Werehog, and the edgy ‘dark’ version of Sonic whose power is gun-having.

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 22: It Takes Two to Orangutango

War. War never changes. Except when the latest Fallout game gets bored with its lack of NPCs and decides to incorporate a hipster gorilla, malicious disembodied hands, and a delusional man shouting about “catching ‘em all.” In addition to our pitch for this new, unofficial DLC, we add to our pantheon of false actor gods.

Episode 11: The Devil Went Down to My Potluck

Bible school, Sunday picnics, spaghetti dinners...we all have our own personal experiences with Religion, but thank Whatever-God-You-Believe-In that real religions aren’t like the ones in video games. In this episode, we unpack some bonkers religions found in video games. Andrew reps a giant whale, Todd flings peasants into the sunset, and Matt rocks out with his naughty bits out.
