Spoiler Episode: Pacific Rim Wrap-Up

Fair warning, this episode is filled with spoilers. You’ve been warned.

Well, since we blew two whole episodes (mecha and kaiju) talking about what you needed to know before you see Pacific Rim, we figured we might as well spend a even longer third episode telling you what we thought of it.

So, that’s exactly what we did.

Along the way we stumble through a Saved by the Bell cold open, Shawn nearly ends Zach’s marriage, we probably spend a bit too long describing the sound kaiju would make getting it on with various other things, and Captain America’s booty is used as a rating system.

Episode Six

Sports!

I was trying to find an uplift quote about how sports is the thing that ties us together, but instead I found this quote about golf from Tiger Woods:

Hockey is a sport for white men. Basketball is a sport for black men. Golf is a sport for white men dressed like black pimps.

Yep. Anyway, moving on.

This week on the Unreliable Sources Podcast we tackle sports, wonder how you get a raven into a football uniform, suggest a few ideas to turn the Spelling Bee into a more active sporting event (hint: it involves punches), question where a Brazilian soccer ref hides a knife in those shorts, give an imitation of what it sounds like when a seven foot tall Chinese basketball player barfs on the court, decide that Ray Lewis’s missing bloody white suit is the greatest piece of sports memorabilia , and remind you to never, ever leave a game early

Episode Five

MMOs: A Massive Waste of Time or a Multiplayer Social Experiment?

Massively multiplayer online video games: MMOs for the initiated, that stupid thing my significant other won’t stop playing to everyone else. They’re the biggest thing to hit video games in the last decade and the Unreliable Sources staff is here to give you a bunch of completely pointless information about them.

In this episode we mock Gamestop employees, ponder if gold farmers are really people, discover why one of our hosts flunked out of college, talk about an Australian losing his virginity and learn that marriage is the most epic loot of all.

Episode Four

Pacific Rim Part Two – Mecha!

In the lead up to the premiere of PACIFIC RIM, the team here at the Unreliable Sources Podcast has taken it upon ourselves to build you a helpful primer as to the major themes of that movie. Those being: kaiju and mecha.

We dealt with the former part of that pair last week, and this week we’re tackling the biggest and smashiest robots in all of mecha.

In this episode we discuss the proper tactics to avoid a rocket punch, declare Mechani-Kong to be the derpiest mecha of them all, name Crotch Gate as the worst name for a future political scandal, and hope that no one ever makes a mecha gnome.

Oh no! I realized I told you I would post the Robot Jox gifs and totally forgot. So, consider this me making good.

 

 ROBOT JOX!

It has brilliant acting and visionary directing.

Oh, and let’s not forget the robotic chainsaw penis.

Episode Three

Pacific Rim Part One – Kaiju!

In the lead up to the premiere of PACIFIC RIM, the team here at the Unreliable Sources Podcast has taken it upon ourselves to build you a helpful primer as to the major themes of that movie. Those being: kaiju and mecha.

This week we focus on the kaiju half of that pair, those lovable, destructive, gigantic Japanese monsters that are looking to obliterate a city near you.

In this episode we invent a Mothra movie that never existed, sing a horrible rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s true colors, debate if Paul Bunyan is really just an American kaiju, and give you our best kaiju roars!

Tune in next week when we bring you up to speed on mecha and all things giant and robotic

Episode One

2013 E3 Wrap-Up, Part One – Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo

Hello and welcome to the first episode of the Unreliable Sources Podcast!

We’re going to start everything off with a wrap of this year’s E3 show. In the first of two episodes we cover the presentations and game lineups from the big three – Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo.

We make fun of Drivatars, cringe when Microsoft scripts a rape joke, explain how Playstation Plus is the best deal in gaming and learn how Shenmue is responsible for all of those quicktime events that you hate.

The second part will be up next week and we’ll cover EA, UbiSoft, all the rest of the games and give our final E3 summations.

Please let us know what you think about our first episode by leaving us a comment.
