The boys of Geek at Arms return for another brand new episode! In Geek Out Mike describes much fun he and Bryan had as guests on the fantastic podcast Saving the Game, and how much he’s enjoyed the recent Amazon series (or was it Netflix) Good Omens. Next, James cannot say enough good things about Godzilla: King of the Monsters. He also talks about taking his family to a local fan convention ArlingCon and how much he’s enjoyed watching My Hero Academia. Bryan relates how much he’s enjoyed the return of JL8, a webcomic by Yale Stewart, fighting Darth Vader and evil cubes with a lightsaber on the Oculus Rift, and the start of a new RPG session of the game Primetime Adventures! Finally, the Fantasy Film Club comes to a close with a review of the 1985 medieval fantasy Ladyhawke, starring Rutger Hauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Matthew Broderick.
In this very slightly holiday-themed episode, Mike Geeks Out about the sci-fi novel Binti, Bryan talks incessantly about Green Arrow and the possibility of a roleplayer’s lair, and James continues to rave about the Mary Rose (and a big thanks to the Museum for sharing our last episode!) We… well, mostly Bryan talks about superhero movies, and then we give some tips on introducing people to better board games than they are used to. Thanks to James’ impressive lists for several tiers of game nerd from the Eurogames virgin to the “holy cow I can’t believe we’ve already spent 1000 hours playing this” wargamer, the links section below is pretty full.

Since there are a couple of individual TV episodes mentioned, I thought I’d track them down for your convenience. James makes reference to an episode of Justice League Unlimited—Season 2, episode 4, “To Another Shore.” Bryan mentions the How I Met Your Mother episode “Monday Night Football,” which was Season 2, episode 14.
James also talked about a scene between Green Arrow and Harley Quinn in the “Arrow Cave.” Bryan misremembered the book that occurred in, crediting it to Kevin Smith’s Quiver story line, but it was actually in Injustice: Gods Among Us issue #5. Quiver‘s really good, though, so I left in the link.
In Episode 6, the guys Geek Out about Tudor-era warship Mary Rose, Star Trek and The Orville, and Ken Mondschein. We also express our opinions of the movies we saw over the summer and look forward to the ones coming up in the holiday season. After that, it’s a look at introducing roleplaying to new players and a not-so-fresh suggestion for public school lunches.
