Littlebigkast – Episode 69: Send in the Clowns

As a welcomed substitution to the kast, Glenn the globetrotting chef joins us in Jeff’s place for this episode and proceeds to be censored up one side and down the other. Thank you for not disappointing us, Glenn. Everyone picks apart their decisions in Until Dawn while Robin hugs her knees in the corner and schedules counseling sessions to help her move past her crippling fear of clowns (to which everyone responds by SENDING PICTURES OF CLOWNS you sick, sick people!).

Beginning with a conversation about the mediocrity (maybe?) of the new Mad Max game and the majesty of the Mad Max movie, the modified Littlebigkast picks apart the phenomenon of games transitioning to movies; what makes a successful transition, what genres are more adaptable, and what were some of the high/lowlights of this movement? You curious now? Yes, yes you are.

Field trips, Mad Max, Witcher 3, and marathon running? Yes. The answer to that question is yes.

The love of all things gaming permeate through the week’s activities for the Kast. Robin and Drew reminisce fondly about running the dreaded relay marathon in the middle of a freakin’ downpour and all the people running off to pee in the woods, Jeff loses his mind about the House of Wolves expansion, and we expose Rachel as not knowing all the lyrics to the “Duck Tales” theme song.

Our Indie Game of the Week is the ever-entertaining Rogue Legacy. Want to know what we thought about it? Zip over to 40:48 to hear Drew sing…and talk about the game, too.  I even give backup jazz hands.

In an impressive feat, the whole Kast all attended an exclusive screening (not really, it was $5 Tuesdays at the theater) of Mad Max: Fury Road and we all agreed it was all that and a bag of warm, buttery popcorn. We then retired to all play Witcher 3 and compare progress in the game. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is our summer lives (not really, but we can dream).
