Needless Things Podcast 62 – Batman: Arkham Knight

NT%2B62%2Bpic.jpg
On
June 23
rd,
2015, Rocksteady’s final Batman game was unleashed upon the world –
Batman:
Arkham Knight
.
After a week of playing, Phantom Troublemaker gathered a group of
Batmaniacs to talk about the game and the history of the franchise.

Phantom
is joined by Needless Things Irregulars Ryan Schweck and
The
Belligerent Monkey
,
as well as newcomers Mike Nelson and Chris “Crispy” Lloyd. The
fellas reminisce about the wonder of
Batman:
Arkham Asylum

actually being a great game, discuss how much the world opened up in
Arkham
City
,
and share differing opinions on the quality of
Arkham
Origins
.

After
a little Arkhamverse history, the crew dives into a discussion of
Arkham
Knight
.
There are minor spoilers, but Phantom provides multiple warnings when
they’re about to happen. Most of the talk is focused on the
gameplay and features rather than plotlines. None of the guys had
finished the game at the time of the recording, so plenty of
mysteries were still in play.

PLUS!
As an extra bonus feature after the show, Crispy and Phantom –
further along than the rest of the crew – discuss certain plot
points and in the outro Phantom shares his guess as to the identity
of the Arkham Knight!

Listen
in as Phantom, Ryan, Jay, Crispy, and Mike talk about one of the most
highly anticipated video games of all time!:

Be
sure to join the new
NeedlessThings Podcast Facebook Group
and get in on the conversation for this week’s episode! Let us know
what
you
think!

Today’s
musical selection is from friends of the show, Calabrese! Their
newest album,
Lust
for Sacrilege
,
is available from
CalabreseRock.com.
For today’s track we’re going with something a little older (and
more appropriate). From their masterpiece
Born
With A Scorpion’s Touch

– “I Wanna Be A Vigilante”!

Flopcast 164: Sexy as a Disco Mummy

The Flopcast

Kevin and Kornflake have one more item of business to discuss from FuMPFeST, as Kevin reveals that in the middle of this funny music convention, he sneaked off to a whole other convention! This was Mego Meet, a show dedicated to the Mego superhero dolls (sorry, action figures) of the 1970s. Found at Mego Meet: Kid Flash’s boots, Tiny Titans creator Art Baltazar, an Ark II Halloween costume, and (according to a rumor started by some goofy podcast) Taylor Swift. The toy talk continues as we flip through a fun book called Rack Toys, which features page after page of bizarre cheapo toys from the 70s and 80s. (The Land of the Lost pinball game looks awesome, but we’re baffled by the Love Boat Barber Shop set.) Then we look ahead to CONvergence, a big crazy convention happening Fourth of July weekend in Bloomington, Minnesota. Kevin will be there, mostly talking about Fangface. Meanwhile, Kornflake just wants you to enjoy a bowl of angry ice cream.
