In our final episode of the year, the hosts drop some personal, geeky and funny moments that have made an impact during 2018. This year in review covers everything from favorite movies, books and games, to more personal moments that made one of us get weepy (Spoiler: it wasn't any of the girls). Overall, it's been another amazing year as a podcast, and we hope we can continue to entertain you all throughout 2019 and beyond. 

And hopefully get on a more consistent stream schedule. #twitchprime.

Settle in with your hot cocoa and Christmas lights while we discuss how to pick out a gift!  One could say we've done a warm and uplifting episode, if you change the definitions of those two words slightly.  Understand your target, put your own opinions aside, don't believe commercials, and embrace your inner Santa Claus!  Maybe do something charitable or thoughtful this season and bring the spirit of joy back to a time that most spiritualties hold to be a time of giving and wonder.

Prepare to recognize that our hosts really don’t enjoy Holiday films with our review of the classic films for this festive time of year! There’s not much more to say other than this (not so) in-depth conversation takes a look at the classics, why we love or hate them, and examine why Santa is a real A-hole. Bonus material includes an awkward discussion of Harry and the Hendersons, and why Holiday films set unrealistic expectations for the season. There’s very little Christmas cheer to be found in  this episode, but if you’re down for some humor, we’ve got more than enough to go around. Thanks Capitalism!

Pull up a chair and prepare to potentially be offended as we argue different sides from cards provided by the game "The Great Debate,” a Kickstarter game by Castle Productions.  Do we really believe what we're saying or are we just saying what we need to win?  We will never tell, but feel free to tell us your arguments and opinions on our social media platforms.  Who needs more psychological help: Joker or the Batman?  Should mandatory sterilization exist in today's overpopulated society?  Did you like that sneak peak of questions?  That's debatable, I'm sure.

We’re back with a new episode, all about eSports, regular sports, and everything in between! We get down with an analysis of the 2018 League of Legends World Championship, and look at the dichotomy between the sports ball and the mind sports. The topics take a weird turn though, where we talk about the worst team names we can make for League before we can’t get franchised, argue for Stardew Valley competitive tournaments, and analyze BlizzCon and the metaphorical pitchforks being raised throughout the internet with the announcement of Diablo: Immortal. It’s a packed episode for our return, so don’t miss out!

It’s that time of the year again! The Free Rotation jumps into the rotation of Magic: The Gathering with our special episode recorded during Prerelease at Super Heroes Cards, Comics and Games! We kick off our episode with a special interview with Team Impulse member,  Mike and our good friend, Tyler, talking about the road to becoming a pro-Pokémon TCG player; also, an important discussion on the best food while traveling.  Plus, all of our hosts from past and present join us on an in-depth look at the cards for Guilds of Ravnica! While we do go into card mechanics and our predictions for decks, we follow everything up with a special challenge: can you survive The End while winning Guilds of Ravnica trivia? Note: all participants signed a waiver before embarking on the challenge. It probably still wasn’t worth the pain.

Not only does Becky answer janky law questions, but we also discuss King, Koontz, and bears (OH MY!). There's more to horror than jump scares and you'll experience the growing sense of dread we discuss the longer you listen to the podcast.  While Angie and Bobby mild meld over books, Becky traumatizes us all with a haunted suit and a Halloween idea for our next podcast.  Moreland is always horrifying-ly awesome!  Special thanks to www.purple-planet.com for our spoopy music in the opening bit.

Grab some popcorn, hide under your blanket, and join us as we talk about our favorite horror films! It’s getting toward the spookiest time of the year, and we’re getting in the mood with a look at some of the movies that have given us nightmares and PTSD over the years (here’s looking at you, It Follows). We dive into a look at all genres of horror, including the paranormal, the gore porn, and the Falcons Superbowl loss in 2017. We also discuss international horror and give recommendations on some of the best anime/manga check out if you’re looking for nightmares.

This week, while Scoob's spawn is being brought into the world, our good friend with fantastic hair and a penchant for Magic: the Gathering joins us to discuss our next moves for global domination... er, that is we discuss MTG.  Bobby drops some knowledge on us regarding standard play, how to progress towards turning pro, and hygiene techniques.  If you have a favorite deck or disagree that red deck wins, drop us a note on Twitter, Facebook, or our email and explain how you're wrong.

On our continued torture of our hosts, Moreland, Scoob and Angie introduce Becky to the world of pro-wrestling with clips featuring some of the greatest matches of all time, along with the stupidest stuff you can find in the genre (I’m looking at you, Dragon Dragon). The hosts hit on various iconic matches and go through some of the funniest botches in wrestling history. We have included the clips we watched in the description below, but all of the material can be found on YouTube if you’d like to explore as well!

In this episode, Angie reads poorly written fanfiction contributed by the other hosts, as well as fanfiction pulled from reliable internet sources.  If bad grammar usage and punctuation errors trigger you, please exercise caution when listening to this episode.  Also included, free of charge, a free audio of a ghost or the decomposed girl under my bed groaning.  In all seriousness, be sure to listen to the outro as we aren't quite certain what we've captured on audio!  I, (Angie), personally feel that the entity couldn't handle the... awesomeness... of the stories read.  Tell us what you think!

(To follow along with the clips we watched, you can check out our Try Not to Cry Playlist on YouTube)

Prepare your tissues as we try to make Moreland cry! Our “The F*** Am I Doing?” Rotation kicks off with a challenge: is Moreland inhuman and won’t cry at the saddest clips we have to offer? We test the theory out by showing him some of the clips that made our fandoms weep in sadness, along with the film clips that have been voted as some of the saddest. Don’t fret, there’s still a lot of humor to be had! However, the catch was that if Moreland cried, he would have to get bikini waxed. If he didn’t, then we were taking his unborn child’s college funds and putting a deposit down on some wax. We apologize in advance to the person that has to deal with him.

This episode was our first live broadcast for our podcast on Twitch, so you can also check out the video at our YouTube channel mentioned below. Spoiler alert: all but one of us cried.

Hop on your soapbox and prepare to become a keyboard warrior with our next episode on gaming controversies and freakouts in our favorite fandoms. We’re talking about some of the biggest controversies in gaming history, including Gamergate, Microtransactions and why Fox News sucks. We also hit on the fact that apparently if you have a keyboard, you can Twitter rant at your favorite stars and shows as if you’re the judge, jury and executioner regarding choices made in the show. Spoilers for Critical Role and the 100, along with some of our favorite video games. Hope you reinforced that soapbox!

We’re back at it with the next portion of our rotation on “Impact” with a look at the crimes inspired by pop culture, creepy pastas and video games. We dive into a discussion regarding the Slenderman stabbings that occurred in 2014, the Matrix Defense and how every single person raising the defense has managed to avoid jail time, and wonder how anyone thinks Grand Theft Auto is possible to pull off IRL. We also throw in a discussion about which movie we would like to live in if it turned out real life was just a computer simulation. Spoiler alert: some of us do believe we are living in a computer simulation thanks to the Mandela Effect.

Prepare for our next rotation, entitled "Impact," where we deep dive into topics that made, well, an impact on the geek world. First up, we look at the saga of the 80's with the Satanic Panic and how D&D did not teach us how to summon demons. We take a look at the chain of events that led to the fears of the game and why we are bias to the fact that the entire panic of D&D was absurd. We also take a look at the historical significance of the Satanic Panic, and how the issue still exists to this day. Thanks, Tom Hanks.

Feel free to use this demonstration of party games down the line with your own group of friends and let us know if there are any other party games we missed that should be an auto-include on game night.

Prepare your ear holes, because we're getting pretty loud in this episode (okay, mostly Moreland with his Gobly Minaj voice). In this episode, we continue our look at our favorite tabletop games that strike fear into the heart of our resident large man, Scoob! We take a look at some of the games inspired by real life events, discuss the games inspired by the B movie genre for horror such as Last Night on Earth, and come up with our own version of Flip or Flop, where you just don't know if the resident spirit is going to kill you. Bonus material includes a discussion of some of our favorite "bad" horror movies, and we define the difference between a horror game and the other type of game that is similarly pronounced.
