Friends From The Internet

So a couple weeks back Graz and I were on the Going Last podcast to talk Dark Souls and the Dark Souls board game. But I never posted about it or linked it in the feed because I'm dumb and I forgot! So here it is, and thanks so much to Kenna and Rich for having us on, and it was a lot of fun, and I hope we didn't make total fools of ourselves!


This week we needed help from our Friends from the Internet, Dave and Graziella to breakdown Dark Souls – plus we review all the other amazing Kickstarters. We are also excited for the best versions of many games, including Legendary Encounters, Star Wars RPG and The Builders! So much to get to! So let’s get to it!

So get on over there and listen to it! Or download the mp3!

Auugh I hate myself for forgetting to post this for so looooong.

Revengecast S02E21 - Truth (part 1)

In this episode of Revengecast: The Podcast About Revenge, Jack Porter's dockers are filled with a steaming load of [RATED E FOR EXPLICIT] and so are ours! With New York in peril thanks to the deployment of the devious Carrion device, wheels are spinning, deals are happening, and alliances are forged, broken, and forged again stronger than ever across not one but two separate islands!

In perhaps the briefest pairing yet, Jactoria Snooping Agency pairs up for the dual purpose of Talking like a Regency Novel Protagonist AND ALSO to investigate the strange occurrences transpiring behind the closed, mahogany boardroom doors of the nefarious Conchly Group(...Global)--who are super good at spycraft and the nonpareil experts in their field at not looking suspicious at all--and their innovative new Cunning Cons: Sponsored by Conrad Grayson (#JointheCONversation). Meanwhile, on the other side of the vestibule doors(where, TBQF, we all kind of wish they'd just stayed forever, like in a sort of Cask of Amontillado scenario), the Decgina Anti-Friends  fritter away their time bickering like only love-struck teenagers can, and Charlotte and Danny, who really bear no portmanteau, are power-napping their way across 17 Blocks (which is one extra block than Bruce Willis and Mos Def ever got!) three hours at a time.

But the [RATED E FOR EXPLICIT] really hits the fan when the power comes back and Emily finds out that maybe not everyone on the planet is super into her exact, specific method of Revanche. The darkest secrets of the Takeda Black Marker Circle Ritual is revealed, Victoria stoops to a new housekeeping low, Ashley is Aligning The Crystals to imbue Conrad with the spirit of Rich People's Greatest Ally, Aiden's heavy heart forces him to reveal a troubling encounter with The Man Who Bites (now streaming on Netflix!), Jack has definitely played at least one Pokemon game (looks like a real SOUL SILVER to me, am I right?), we lament the futility of one Babbano against the full might of the Vecchia Famiglia dei Magi (we also cut like half an hour of us humorlessly discussing the horrors of retributive criminal justice, so you're welcome), and Emily is with child?? Well, probably not, but somebody is, and you'll have to listen [rate, review, and subscribe to our patreon] to find out who!!

Woah, buddy! Just because we all-but slept through the first case of Sherlock Holmes and the Devil's Daughter doesn't mean we can't  half-assedly recap it for your listening pleasure! Thrill to the sound of us struggling to remember the simplest details, chill to the painful strife of 19th century child labor (cor blimey!!!!), and think, quite sternly, on what Kareem Abdul-Jabbar would do in this situation.

Listen Up!

This episode is the best guys, bringing us the potent, truest form of Revenge melodrama. Like the MAIN conflict is about Emily wanting to move to Paris with Victoria's son. The woman would be willing to kill over this. They use the super dangerous drama music and everything. YOURE MOVING OUT ?!?!?!?! MURDER!!!!! Also prominently featured are (what i assume  to be) Austen levels of politeness that cunningly transform into sick burns. Powers we clearly don't have, because we don't waste a single second on whether or not Love Actually sucks (it does) and whether or not Soul Reaver not only rocks butts but also deserves to be plot-recapped for like ten minutes in a two-hour podcast that is basically just a plot recap in the first place (it does!!)

Delving deep into the mind's eye of our hearts, we cast Victoria in her Most Challenging Role yet, The Empathetist (join the conversation at #TRUTCHYOURGUT), and seeking hidden wisdom lost across the many folds of time and space, we divine Victoria’s 4 pillars of nen superpower:

Elegance Mistrust Subtlety Money

...which spells EMSM...which as we can all plainly see is basically just EMILY. Truly they are locked in providential battle, one fated since the forging of the earth. Also fated by that time Emily saw Victoria kissing her dad. To be fair Victoria did scowl at her. And then ruined her life. So yes basically yes, providence and doom and all that. Dave correctly intuits that Victoria experiences sex like an Asari matriarch, possibly the kind that have sex so good that it kills you? Then theres all the shit Aiden is doing while he is Going Rogue, its a lot but lets just say it involves mall katanas. Finally, Dave is pretty sure Victoria has played Valkyrie Profile and I mean it is a really good game and Victoria does have unimpeachable taste but I'm not convinced shes gotten around to it yet.

Listen Up!

In this edition of the Revengecast post I'm typing this while Graz streams Dark Souls 3 so apologies for brevity or a (greater than normal) lack of cohesion!

Tonight, we welcome Spankminister's expertise for this Very Special Episode of Revenge, by which I mean it involves not only 90s-style hackers, but also 90s-style video games (by which I mean Street Fighter 2, boyyy!) On this cyberbattlescape where bits are bytes and bytes are the only thing that's real, the notorious Falcon (who is definitely a man) learns a valuable lesson about friendship (maybe!) from... wait, do my eyes deceive me or is that the beautiful and handsome Ryan Gosling star of hit movie, The Driver Man??

Yes friends, tonight, truly the fingerless gloves and Chun-Li kicks flow like rose-scented sweet water as we spiral into a dizzyingly dark descent wherein we discover that Jack Porter may be not only Stupidly Honest Kanzaki Nao BUT ALSO The Ultimate Survivor AKA Kaiji (JUST GET NAKED AND WALK THAT STEEL BEAM, BUDDY, THAT DEBT AIN'T GONNA CLEAR ITSELF), and mull over whether Victoria contemplating her past might be just a little self-serving and/or narcissistic and/or you know, she's kinda got a point though, what's a seventeen-year-old mom gonna do with a kid when Paris is on the horizon?? Who would blame her? Not me!!

(well, maybe me; but at the same time, I understand completely her choices, and to a certain extent believe they were best for everyone involved)

And so, in our own way, we all wish we possessed both Victoria's overwhelming inner strength and her consummate ability for self-deception, because couldn't we all use a bit of Baptism By Haute Couture, here and there? Meanwhile, Charlotte's permitting herself a nice night of Girl on Grayson Action (tm!) and we're sitting here like a bunch of dopes fretting over Declan's remarkably inexpert child care abilities, lamenting Baby Carl's unenviably status as the world's first infant to experience post-partum depression while JUJU CHANG IS IN THE SITTING ROOM RIGHT NOW. HOLY CRAP. EVERYONE GET A MOVE ON, THERE'S NO TIME!
