Welcome to another episode of Throwdown. On this podcast/vidcast we discuss the latest video game, pop culture, and tech news in an honest and uncompromising fashion.
On tonight’s episode we welcome special guest Andrew Dickman. Andrew is a YouTube personality and an animator who is a devout geek. We ask him about his career, including his stint on Channel Awesome, his current channel: Electronic Heroes, about his webcomic: The Roomies and much more.
Not much happened in gaming this past week. Since that’s the case, we focus the gaming part on two interesting developments within our ranks. First up, Brian, our resident PC Master Racer, has bought a PlayStation 4. He gives us his impressions of the console and reveals the third mystery game he purchased along with Bloodborne (which came with the system) and Grand Theft Auto V. Speaking of Bloodborne, your humble host recently purchased the game and is actually enjoying it despite his original misgivings.
Unlike gaming, a lot of stuff happened in Pop Culture for us to talk about. We got two reveals this week: One of Daredevil‘s red costume, and another of what Thing will look like in the Fantastic Four movie. We give our thoughts on how both of these characters look. Artist Frank Cho caused some controversy when he (essentially) gave the middle finger to those who complain about “sexy” comic book covers with two pieces he drew which were inspired by the Spider-Woman #1 variant cover. This leads into a larger conversation about our “outrage society” and creator’s rights.
Thanks as always to Shawn Daley for our awesome intro and outro music.
