An all-new SPT Podcast format as Troy is joined by his good friend and former Games Workshop's Drew Drescher to chat GenCon and XCOM announcements, Mass Effect 4, Guardians of the Galaxy and more!
We know that it's been a while, so Troy decided to do a little experiment and start podcasting on his ghastly morning commute in Los Angeles. Join him in the passenger seat for a little waxing nostalgic in this first nostalgiacast discussing Star Trek: The Next Generation, KWGN Channel 2's Star Trek hotline, and Troy making friends with the gardener in the truck next to him.
Addiction. Rehabilitation. Weird fan fiction involving Sonic the Hedgehog and characters you love. Troy and Jason explore how "geek" has become a popular trend in 2012 and Jason has a three tier definition for the types of current geeks. Which one are you? Tune in to find out!
Jason just became an uncle, which brings up the question - how are Troy and Jason going to raise their kids (and will they be geeks like their old men)? Hear what Jason's doing to assure geek victory in the raising of his nephew and see why Paula Abdul has a pending lawsuit in this week's episode!
For whatever reason, Jason has suddenly been stricken with the sports bug. He's buying the MLB sports packages, rooting for the Cincinnati Bengals and going to sports bars. The question is, why? I mean, look at him. He's not exactly the sporting type. We'll get to the bottom of it in this week's episode.
Troy and Jason tackle the conversation that we know is on everyone's minds: do we really need to reboot THAT? Listen as they discuss their thoughts toward super hero origins, Marvel in Troy's DC/Marvel confusion, and Jason wears a hat instead of a tie this time!
Have you ever noticed that your friends on Facebook all have a distinct persona? That they might be instilling the version of themselves that they want to present out there on the world? How is that like the wild wild west days of the interwebs when we all hid behind sweet screennames like McFlysVest42? And what does that have to do with the marketing concept of branding? All these questions explored, plus - Jason wears a tie!
The Future is Now (or so we've been told)! Troy and Jason discuss the perks of an iPhone 5, how having a similar device didn't exactly make you the coolest kid on the block back in high school, oh and then they veer into a tangent about what Star Trek technology they'd like to see appear in the future. Y'know, the norm all in another day's Still Playing with Toys.
This is a serious one, folks. The paper-based comic book is on the way of the 8-track and there's nothing that we can really do about it. But Jason might just clutch to those paper comics like his still clutches his ABBA and Air Supply 8-tracks. Tune in to find out.
Meet Troy and Jason, your hosts for Still Playing with Toys: Live. Why are they here (or do they think that they're here)? What movies, music, comics, and other pop-culutre will they be discussing? Are they wearing pants? How does the movie Firefly relate to a Cheeto? What else is in store on the SPT channel? All these questions answered PLUS Geraldo unearths the tomb of Frankie "Big Boned" Mallone on this episode of SPT: Live!
