    The Spin-Off Doctors: In The Name Of The King 3: The Last Mission

    The Spin-Off Doctors: In The Name Of The King 3: The Last Mission

    The last Uwe Boll film left to do before we can move onto some hopefully better flicks, In the Name of the King 3: The Last Mission is aptly named.

    It's also fittingly horrid.

Keeps it real

It’s the weekly goods
Thanks Jim, Laura + Conrad!

AAA Podcast

It’s gud.

Andy_Llama ,

Really bad now. Used to be one of my favourites.

For many years I used to really enjoy Jim’s work. He was funny, and his opinions used to be spot on. Now the podcast is less about games, and more about Trans issues and woke politics. This is fine, but not what I signed up for. A classic example of ‘Get woke, go broke’. The Irish guy who left a year or so ago used to bring balance to the show. But since he left, the three remaining members spout their gender politics, and try and find problems where none exists. It would be nice if Jim got back to what he’s good at, and ditch the other two unfunny drains.
