    Sandworms and Spinoffs: Witcher prequel, Dune movie hype and MUCH MORE!

    Sandworms and Spinoffs: Witcher prequel, Dune movie hype and MUCH MORE!

    Netflix is expanding the universe of The Witcher! We're hyped for the upcoming slew of spinoffs, with "Nightmare of the Wolf" up first as an animated prequel showcasing Vesemir's backstory. And of course, with the much-anticipated release of Denis Villeneuve's Dune movie just around the corner, we dive deep into the sandy planet of Arrakis as first depicted by Frank Herbert on the page, and discuss why thousands of readers keep coming back to this seminal science-fiction novel. We conclude the episode with what we're looking forward to, namely the recently announced Dragonball Super: Super Hero and how Spider-Man: No Way Home's teaser trailer is blowing the internet's collective minds.

    Sweet Tooth (Netflix Series) Season 1 Discussion + Quirky Videogames We're Lovin'

    Sweet Tooth (Netflix Series) Season 1 Discussion + Quirky Videogames We're Lovin'

    Join us to discuss the recently released Netflix series "Sweet Tooth" season 1. In this TV adaptation of the Jeff Lemire comics, we discover a dark fairytale post-pandemic society with animal-children hybrids. We follow the tale of Gus, the titular kid with the sweet tooth and deer antlers, as he goes on a journey with his seemingly unwilling protector Jep, aka "Big Man", as they both discover that the real candy is the friends we make along the way.  

    We also discuss a couple of awesome different-from-the-usual-style games: It Takes Two, a quirky co-op platformer about collaboration and relationships, and Heaven's Vault "a science fiction archaeological adventure game."  We close the episode with why Denis Villeneuve's DUNE has us hyped for October. 

    Enjoy!

    Episode 5 - Legacy of Kain Series: A Retrospective

    Episode 5 - Legacy of Kain Series: A Retrospective

    Welcome to the first special episode of Pop Culture Rush: an in-depth look at the Legacy of Kain games, a cult series of 5 videogames released between 1996 and 2004. These games were revolutionary at the time for their intricate plotting, brilliant writing, and excellent storytelling as well as excellent voice-acting. While the first few games were commercially successful, unfortunately eventually the series was left behind as the videogame industry continued to evolve. Legacy of Kain remains a very important gaming milestone on both a personal and global level, and has affected thousands of fans worldwide, who still revere this story and the journey these games took us on. In this episode we dive deep into the mythos of the series and hear from some fans from the still-active Legacy of Kain online community.
