    Episode 3: What makes the Old World Special?

    We are going to be referencing White Wolf a lot, even though we have experience with multiple systems. Why? And why "the Old World of Darkness"?

    We're going to talk about where we're coming from, what we like about the Old World and share some stories of how we got here.

    DNN 202: Who is Morbius

    DNN 202: Who is Morbius

    Who is Morbius? When is it going to come out.

    We record everything we know...before quarantine, but it should still be on schedule for March 21st, 2021.

    In the 616 comic universe, Michael Morbius was a scientist born in Greece who became a Nobel Prize winning biochemist. He suffered from a debilitating blood disease and developed an experimental treatment involving vampire bats and electroshocks. Its side effects turned him into a pseudo-vampire who needed to consume blood in order to survive, and gained typical vampire characteristics such as an aversion to sunlight, and the powers of flight, enhanced strength, speed, and healing (a healing factor). His overall appearance changed as well: he gained fangs, his nose flattened to appear more bat-like, and his skin became extremely pale. Additionally, the victims of his bite would turn into living vampires themselves. When he first experienced the change, he killed the assistant who had helped him develop the treatment.

    What will he be like in the film? We share everything we know so far!

    Ep 201 Dorkside Debrief 1/13/20

    Leaks from Sony came out in the form of Playstation 5’s new logo, which looks EXACTLY the same as the other 4. 
    Sony also announced it has no intention of attending E3 this year and will do their own show to officially announce the PS5.
    For the first time ever, a movie was “patched”. Cats received a day 1 update to fix some CGI that was missed.
    Ryan Reynolds confirmed Deadpool 3 is in the works, and at Marvel Studios no less!
    In an unprecedented move, “New Mutants” is back and will be released April 3rd

    Ep 149 Dorkside Debrief: Week of Dec. 30th

    Ep 149 Dorkside Debrief: Week of Dec. 30th

    This week’s mission debriefs: News from the Video Game Awards and Sony’s State of Play.

    The Announcements!

    X-Box unveils the title, in which they put a LOT of thought into, of their next-gen console. Aptly dubbed, X-Box Series X, or as we call it… XboxX
    Gearbox is making another “Looter” type game, but this one is a “Looter-Slasher” and is a PS5 launch game. ‘Godfall’ looks ridiculous, in a good way.
    The man who started Battle Royales announced…something. We got a ‘teaser’ for something mysteriously named “Prologue”
    Ghosts of Tsushima trailer dropped. Let’s talk about it.

    The AWARDS!

    Game of the Year: Sekiro: Shadow’s Die Twice
    Action Game: Devil May Cry 5
    Action-Adventure Game: Sekiro (Again)
    Disco Elysium, blowing it away with: Fresh Indie Game, Independent Game, Narrative, RPG
    VR Game: No suprise, Beat Saber
    Sports/Racing Game: Crash Team Racing
    Fighting Game: Smash Bros, (anyone surprised?)

    The State of Play announcements: 

    Spellbreak. What to say about it?
    Dreams. Coming Valentine’s Day 2020, will it bust?
    Untitled Goose Game. December 17th
    Babylon’s Fall, from the makers of Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, and Nier: Automata. And it looks like… the same games, but better quality?
    Predator: Hunting Grounds seems super fun, but looks, not up to par with today’s graphics.
    RE3 Remake gets… multiplayer? Project Resistance gets rolled up into RE3 remake…or is it the other way around? Either way, they’re together.

    J.J. Abrams does J.J. Abrams things and teased Ahsoka Tano in Rise of Skywalker. Do we trust him?
    The amazing rework of Sonic might be for naught. The movie is still coming, but the heroes are reportedly out of a job. Moving Picture Company has shut down.
    Samuel L. Jackson can now be Alexa’s voice… complete with explicit options.
    Hackers are doing Bethesda’s job and putting NPCs in Fallout 76
