EftRoU 170: It was too preachy

It’s that time, yet again! Another Entertainment for the Rest of Us. Each week when I post the show I get a big smile on my face. That is when I do get a post up. There are still episodes in the can that I haven’t posted… someday I’ll get to it.

In this week’s show we are missing Square Ross due to some wedding he was in. So, Mike and I discuss the animated movie ParaNorman and the action flick The Expendables 2. Mike also shares some thoughts on the latest video game that is consuming his time.

I hope you all are ready for a fun discussion about one of the biggest action films of the 2012 Summer. In The Expendables 2, Mr. Church reaches out to Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his rag-tag crew of Expendables for an easy job, but when one of his men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge begins. Also starting in this film are some great action heroes including: Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Liam Hemsworth.

Game of The year Nominee Batman: Arkham City

This year more than ever was a year of some huge games including both Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 going head to head for gamers dollars and Gears of War 3 trying to hang in there. In addition the Multiplayer world grew even bigger. Listen in to find out what game ended up taking the Best Shooter of the year and Best Multiplayer award, the results may surprise you

We cover many of the diverse categories sharing our thoughts, like if Best DLC, Best Human Male/Female are even worth having in a game. It’s an interesting discussion given we were actually seeing pixels on the screen vs real humans acting.
