The Action Points Podcast! Episode Epsilon

Banner

Hey all! We’re back after a long hiatus. Sorry, lots of IRL stuff got in the way and also I was just lazy (Bad Aaron). This episode was actually recorded quite a while ago, but I only got around to it now. Ooops. If you don’t know, you can now find this podcast in iTunes as well and feel free to join us as we discuss various geeky topics.

In this episode:

In this very special episode, our hosts converge on a single microphone to record our first ever podcast all in the same place! Yay! Now it’s a circle jerk, which is somehow less sad? This episode, we kick off with a quick overview of some games, board or otherwise: Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, Retro City Rampage, and Sim City. We also discuss the recent occurences of video games being sold in an uncomplete state. We talk a little about Infinite Kung Fu too. We then jump into the nostalgia machine to reminisce about Disgaea and Harvest Moon, and also discuss some game recommendations for Kat (who you may remember from our last episode). Evan and I also discuss our current mancrushes, while Daniel reveals his poor taste in mancrushery.

In the nerd OCD corner, we discuss getting matching trade dress on our comics (20th Century Boys, Pluto, Astro Boy, Dragon Quest:Dai no Daiboken, Scott Pilgrim, Nextwave, How My Body Works, Evangelion). I gripe a little bit about the latest season of Community and Evan explains what Fob Tourrette. Next, we discuss the usage of font and lettering in comics such as Ouran High School Host Club, Thor, and Fantastic Four. I give my opinion on readability vs. aesthetic in font choice in comics as well as in design of board games (Chaos in the Old World, Legendary), including colour blind friendliness in games (Ticket to Ride, Power Grid, Guildhall).
