2014 has been an interesting year not only for us here on The Koalition and Throwdown but for the wider geek world. Since this is the final episode of Throwdown in 2014, we decided to look back on the year that was.
We begin the show by talking about the top three Gaming, Tech, and Pop Culture news items of the year. There was no single gaming event bigger than GamerGate so it automatically gets the highlight treatment as biggest gaming story. The comet landing was probably the most important news story of the decade since it puts us one step closer to claiming our rightful place among the stars. Finally, we talk about the biggest Pop Culture news story which was the Marvel Studios movie slate press event. An event so monumental that we had to do an impromptu Throwdown special edition episode for it.
The bulk of this podcast isn’t dedicated to news however. To make things really special, we run down our individual top three favorite video games and movies from 2014. If you’re a regular viewer/listener of Throwdown then you can probably guess what some of us are going to pick but now you can all see exactly what we thought was the best of the best from this past year.
We want to thank everyone who has supported Throwdown in the past, present, and future. We do this podcast and Throwdown Your Questions for all of you and we’re grateful that you continue to show us love by tuning into this crazy show of ours each week. We also want to thank The Koalition for giving us a home and for helping this show reach a whole new audience. 2014 was just the beginning and in 2015, expect bigger things from all of us. Again. we couldn’t have gotten here without you, so thank you all.
Throwdown Ep. 17 will air on January 8th at 10:30PM EST, right here on The Koalition. Have a happy and safe holiday season guys!
