Obsessive Comics Disorder #49: "A Giant Cat Crushed My New Phone!"

This week, Philip and I try out a new bit at the beginning of the show, talk about the new phone and tablet that Verizon gave Philip (he just had to sign his life away for it), and make fun of Fox for trying to create a family friendly version of The Walking Dead.

This Week In Gotham

Lab Accident Releases Giant Cat!

A LexCorp subsidiary in Tokyo, Japan was experimenting with new types of Kryptonite and its effects on animal life, but the  company bit off more than it can chew when one of its test kittens grew to 30 stories tall!  The cat initally ran amok, causing serious damage to skyscrapers as it scratched I ts claws on them.  Since then, the Tokyo police have been able to keep the animal contained by shining the Japanese Bat-signal on the ground to distract it.

UPDATE:  LexCorp is touting that the incident was not an accident and was planned in part with YouTube to promote Lex Luthor's new web series.  A spokesman for LexCorp stated: "Hey, people love cats, and Lex Luthor is a man who gives the people what they want, and much more."

This week, we've got some brand new games that I've tried recently, some background info on the Dungeon that I built for my D&D 4e group last year, and we finish out the episode discussing the fantasy wargame Small World!

Board Games

One Night Ultimate Werewolf - Not the same as the "full" werewolf version

Adventure Time Card Wars - Never seen the show, but interesting game

Quarriors is free on iOS - Haven't tried it yet, but have downloaded it

Tsuro

The Walking Dead (Comic version) - Very weird as a 2 player game, probably works a lot better with more people

Originally Recorded on February 26th, 2012

More Star Trek Online talk this week, as Chris is oh so close to getting that Sovereign class ship he wants so badly; a bit more Minecraft news and Philip gets to finally find out what Chris thought of Terra Nova.  Oh, and a bit of news as the Guild Wars 2 beta signups went out--but Philip doesn't even know about Guild Wars?  GASP!

Relative Dimensions #5: “Where Chris Eats His Words About Star Trek Online”

Lots of big stuff to talk about, as it has been a couple of weeks since we have churned out an episode! Hear us talk about holidays, football games, Magic The Gathering, and of course, what episode wouldn't be complete without a little bit of WoW talk!
