CR System

Challenge_Rating_2

The Challenge Rating System that Pathfinder uses is a holdover from D&D 3.5. This time around, Curtis and I dive into the math underneath building opponents and dig into where it works and where it doesn’t. We share some of our own observations, and offer up a more simplistic alternative – just go for it!

Post-GenCON GURPS Showdown

It took a bit to gather the time and energy to decompress after GenCON, but Curt and I finally review our convention experiences. Add in a little music from The FUMP, and close out with a cage match between GURPS 3E and 4E. It’s all gaming this time around.

Shark Week

fakeumentoryShark Week and GenCON 2014 all in one sitting. We’ve got some things to say about the fakeumentories on the Discovery Channel. Last year it was Megalodon, and this year it’s Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine! We share our excitement over GenCON, dish out a new life lesson from the Disney-Pixar film Finding Nemo, and serve up a B-Movie Double Feature review. This time around: Sharktopus and Tw0-Headed Shark Attack. Both films get positive “Buy It” reviews. Finally, Isaiah talks about the book he read, “Armor of God” by Phil Elmore. It’s a great story about a real-life superhero. See you in the reaction chamber!

Sharknado Live!

ncm-fathom-events-logoThe Sharknado Rifftrax event recorded live come to local theatres. Well, one theatre. Curtis and I threw a black bag over Drew’s head and went to see it! A new segment premieres, a look at the moral life lessons behind beloved Disney films. This time around we look at the Disney take on Tarzan.

Hercules In Space

hercules rebornWell, not quite. But we do have a B-movie double feature for you. One of them is Hercules, and the other is in space! Curt and I fire up the reaction chamber for two new released from the Asylum. Age of Tomorrow blends elements of Armageddon, Ender’s Game, and Independence Day. Hercules Reborn seeks to merge Conan, Gladiator, and Robin Hood. Both of them are solid movies that we enjoyed well enough. The final rating for both of them is “Borrow.” We close up with a quick review of a trip to the comic book store where we stumbled upon hidden treasures in the form of Ogre Pocket Edition and Atomic Robo the RPG! Woot! Both of them deserve an episode of their own, and we’ll get to that!

Lastly prior to firstly…. Sharknado the Riffing is coming to Evansville! We missed the live riffing of the movie on July 10, and we’re gunning for the rerun on Tuesday July 15! Check your local listings or follow the link to the good folks at Riff Trax!
