    Awesome show as always, I am so excited about south park, really liked it since it first came out, I am not up to date with the latest seasons but still watch it sometimes. This difficult slider is so south park and it is right for this current political (especially for American) situations.

  2. I’ve gotten so old that when I hear about new movies, I try and figure out how they could be good. I see the Joker movie kind of like Dunkirk. You dump all the past “origin” stories for the Joker into one movie, and follow each around. The gangster boss Jack Napier, the failed comedian, a member of the Red Hood gang, the Ace Chemical employee, and the key is you have it all center around the rise of “The Joker” but never show which one actually becomes the Clown Prince of Crime.

    I’m very much liking Destiny 2. It seems like more of the same (Destiny) but with some story wrapped around it. I don’t need a big motivation for a quest, but it is nice to some kind of justification other than shooting all the things.

    If that would be actually what they do for the Joker origin movie, I would be 100% on board. However, I fear, they will take the usual Super Heroes template and pick one story and go with it.

    There is a lot I enjoy about Destiny, but there is also a lot I don’t care for or find particularly special. From what I hear from other game’s critics and friends playing the game, I am very much in a minority. Maybe I am just not an MMO player.

    Thanks! Yeah, I thought it was very clever and on point too.

    Re: The BRB Geek Speak Playlist… I can’t unhear Weird Al Yankovic when listening to Jo’s Anthem Part Two.

     

    @alex – Have you played a conventional MMO like Warcraft?

    Nope, Destiny 2 was my first. I tried Elder Scrolls for like two hot minutes, but that’s it.
