The podcast continues with Rob Eubank (@master_dex) joining me as the guest co-host as we tackle a rather large topic from today’s world: Marriage Equality.
The initial genesis for this subject came from Orson Scott Card being raked across the coals by some of his (ex) fans because of his rather strong convictions against gay rights and gay marriage, even going so far as to say that a constitution that supports such things is a weak one. While we do state our opinions on this topic, the real meat comes in whether an author should be held accountable for his personal beliefs, especially when his work doesn’t overtly reflect these things in any way.
And naturally, we discuss same-sex relationships from some modern TV shows and video games, among other things.
Oh, and we also mention a little thing about, you know, the LucasArts closure.

This week on the show, my friend Ken Imbody joins us to talk about his latest obsession: “XCOM: Enemy Unknown.” We also talk about a few other topics too, including “Guild Wars 2” and the recent purchase of LucasArts by Disney.
Ken is an avid role-player and gamer and an all-around nerd in many ways. He’s a fun person to pick his brain with comic book questions, so perhaps in a future episode (Season 3?) he will join us to talk about comics!
If you have any questions for Ken, feel free to send them to me and I will be sure to pass them along.

After talking with Warren Bennett about it, I decided to go ahead and write a companion review to his review he wrote yesterday of “Star Wars: The Old Republic.” My goal was to give readers a second look at it and cover things that he might not have covered (which works, as he covered a few things I myself didn’t bother to). The result was perhaps a bit overly-long (2278 words, to be exact), but I think it will make a good read for those of you who are interested in the game but are not sure yet where you fall on the spectrum (e.g. whether you want to play it or not).
So, if you are looking for more information on BioWare’s latest title, head on over to Anjel Syndicate and give my (and Warren’s) review a read.
