MMP November Edition

Hey Folks, Chris here. A few things happened near the end of last week that I wanted to talk about and what’s coming for the rest of the month.

First. The Misdirected Mark Podcast released Episode 135 – Sanity and Nights Black Agents which featured the secret weapon of the show Drew Smith. We talked about Sanity as a mechanic in games and then went In Depth on NBA. By the way the Dracula Dossier Kickstarter for NBA is running right now. I would suggest checking it out.

http://misdirectedmark.com/mmp135-sanity-and-nights-black-agents/

Second. Threat Detected has release the next part in their epic Star Wars AP C is for Chewbacca. Check out the crew as they help out Exovar (the Star Wars Indiana Jones) in his fight against the arms dealer Thasca, who’s put together a lethal squad of mercenaries to conquer Exovar’s Emporium.

http://misdirectedmark.com/c-is-for-chewbacca-volume-2-pt-1/

Last. I am part of Encoded Designs, Phil’s game company, and we’ve just finished up the Alpha for Part Time Gods of Fate and will be going to play test soon. If you’re interested in play testing hit us up on G+ or me over on Facebook and we’ll put you on the list of potential playtesters. Here’s the cover:PtGoF

Soon. I’ve chatted with Rob Schwalb of Schwalb Entertainment about game design and his upcoming Shadow of the Demon Lord in the Lounge which I hope to have out early this week. Rob Heinsoo of 13th Age and 4th edition fame and Writer, Editor, Leximaven, Game Girl, Vorpal Blonde, Midas’s Touch, and Schrödinger’s Brat Shanna Germain will also be on the feed this month along with an In Depth on 13th Age around Thanksgiving time.

That’s everything and you’ll be hearing from me very soon.

The team includes a mask-wearing knife fighter called V… and a katana-wielding blonde-haired human female in a yellow jumpsuit, only known as the Bride. Who needs canon anyhow?

Threat Detected Even More Old Episodes

Hey gang, this is your old buddy Mayday Malone. I was just taking some old data discs off the hands of a pirate gang that made fun of my mother… and well… I found back issues of Threat Detected inside. Since I’m a sharing kind of guy, I thought I’d share the booty. Speaking of booty, you won’t believe who
I just ran into. Sirona O’Keefe. More on that in an episode of Threats From Gallifrey.

This Week in Geekdom – #12

Star Wars VII

Are the Stormtroopers Getting A Big Makeover in Star Wars: Episode VII?

Probably not THE storm troopers, but a clone set belonging to a mercenary group. The whole pile of Star Wars rumors confuse me, but the picture is kind of cool.

 

 

 

Last Week in Television

Forever – this was the most surprising of the new premiers for me. I’m pretty sure the premier used to be a Wholock fanfiction, between the rebirth, the ever present fob watch, and Henry Morgan IS Sherlock. The list of tropes used is already several pages long, and I’m sure tvtropes.com will confirm.

And despite all this, it was probably the most fun hour of crime procedural I’ve seen since early Castle.

 

Doctor Who – This week featured present Danny Pink more strongly than the past, this has one of my favorite relationship scenes in Doctor Who. It’s surprisingly not melodramatic, or soap opera-y, compared to most Doctor Who relationships, which pleased me. It’s also a pretty decent story, along the lines of The Lodger or School Reunion.

 

Agents of SHIELD – Also surprisingly good. To me, it’s what season one should have looked like. My opinion of the premier is  a little clouded because I was so angry with the terrible characterization of Simmons, and her lack of interest in anything but Fitz. It turns out the people running the show know what they’re doing.

This episode felt incredibly like a Whedon episode, more than anything in the past. The Fitz-Simmons plot, showing the new plane in the same way as Serenity was presented in ‘Out of Gas’ and the deaths. Also, something that struck me as very clever was how they chose to handle Agent Carter. It seems they two shows will share a single villain, which means Agent Carter will (likely) not only show how SHIELD was formed, but also how the modern villain was formed. It’s a cool crossover technique since they can’t properly crossover like Arrow and Flash

 

Once Upon a Time

This surprisingly didn’t suck. I like how they handled Elsa, Ana, and the rest. And it could be cool to see Emma and the rest with a new villain that none of them ever heard of. so if you were a fan, and were debating whether or not to watch this season, then I suggest you do. If you weren’t a fan, the first two seasons are pretty good, and are online in various places.

 

Gotham, Haven, and Sleepy Hollow – I haven’t watched any of these, and will likely binge watch them at a future date. They were on last week, and will be on again next week.

 

Next Week in Television

Basically exactly what was around last week.  I’m especially looking forward to Doctor Who, because I think Danny will be in the TARDIS, but I’m always excited for Doctor Who, and usually wrong about what’s going to happen.

 

Since there isn’t much going on except what telelvision reviews, I’ll leave you with this if you haven’t seen it. Captain Mal Reynolds, Star Lord, and Han Solo talk about shooting first in Lego Form.

It’s a great place to start if you’re catching up from the beginning.
