The Geek Elite are playing fantasy football, come listen as they go over their past week in navigating the NFL 2019 season.
To recap Week 8 and talk about going into Week 9, Commissioner Mike Santos has Mitch, John, and Candice, get together and discuss their teams’ ups and downs, and strategies going into next week, and Andy drops in his audio as well.
Chris, Rafa, and Mitch dive into the spinner rack for this week, and then challenge themselves to create a villain team for the Joker to lead that involves the supernatural to finish off the Joker month with some Halloween-esque fun for this #NewComicBookDay.
So if you ever wonder”What If?”, or utter the words “Just Imagine”, or love to argue “Who Would Win?” then this is the podcast for you. Let Chris and Mitch take you to another world, another time, and instruct you to “Imagine If…”.
Listen at your own risk, because here there be SPOILERS, so I hope you are caught up on all your comic book tv shows.
So if you watch Supergirl, Arrow, Flash, The Walking Dead, Jessica Jones, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Daredevil, Gotham, Agents of SHIELD, or Preacher, tune in to Televised Heroics as Daniel and Mitch remind you why you like scripted television again.
Ubisoft’s 2002 ‘Splinter Cell’ got so many things right in its series debut that much of it still holds up well 17 years & 3 gaming generations later. It has an outstanding atmospheric tone with its use of light & shadow, hilarious “Kafka”esque writing, a fantastic stoic main character in “Sam Fisher” who was perfectly voice cast, by Michael Ironside, & an interesting espionage story. This is a serious stealth game that leaves no room for error and offers no forgiveness for any mistakes. You have to move & operate like an invisible ninja to defeat your target & obtain classified data. In many ways it’s like the best “Mission Impossible” game we never got. That being said what has aged terribly is its very cumbersome platforming mechanics which require exact positioning & are often frustrating to pull off in the heat of the moment. Some of the unwritten rules of the game, that you can shoot lights off, don’t always apply either, leaving for some frustrating moments & sometimes the checkpoint systems can be terribly flawed. In the end though its the execution of the concept that is still impressive. Very few things in gaming have the type of sex appeal as Fisher grabbing someone by the head and pulling them into the dark at the point of a gun. Grade B
“The future comes, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall miss no game, withhold no news, report all rumors. I shall wear no jerseys and plead allegiance to no side. I shall live and die on my webpage. I am the word in the darkness. I am the watcher of the tv. I am the megaphone that informs the realms of geek. I pledge my hands and name to the Geek’s Watch, for geeks and all the geeks to come.”
John, Jessica, Stephen, Mitch, and Elizabeth go over their “Week’s Watch”, and jump right into the new HBO series Watchmen episode 1: ‘It’s Summer And We’ve Run Out Of Ice’.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Todd Phillips is officially in talks to direct a sequel to the highly successful 'Joker' aswell as another unknown DC Comics origin story.
