GMD Ep28: The Handicap Seats

GMD Ep28Ben and Jared open the show by describing their less than stellar theater experience during the opening day of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Alex hasn’t seen the movie yet (she refused an invitation to see the movie with them), so for her sake they keep things spoiler-free as they give their brief thoughts on the film itself.

It’s the end of 2015 so their isn’t much news this week, but the recent announcement of Ni No Kuni II is a welcome surprise for Ben and Alex. Later on the crew discusses their personal favorite games of 2015 in The Top Three List of the Week, followed by another edition of The Worst Thing That Happened To Us This Week and the wrap up of Alex’s Pokemon Nuzlocke Challenge in What You Been Playing Bro?.

Otakus Must Die Ep9This week’s show begins with the announcement that Samurai Jack is coming back to TV for a new season! In other news, Jared attempts to provide a relatively spoiler free synopsis of the Steins;Gate alternate episode 23 OVA that recently aired. (If any of you are Steins;Gate fans make sure to comment and give me some validation here. Because I sure as hell don’t get any from my co-hosts!).

Japanese Lessons with Alex is now officially a recurring segment, and in today’s edition Alex attempts to educate Ben and Jared about the various forms of “goodbye” used in Japan.

After a group discussion about how the current season is progressing, it’s on to some series reviews. Alex covers Maria Holic, Ben finally completed Gurren Lagann and shares his thoughts on it, and Jared issues a retraction on some previous misconceptions that he had for School-Live.
