  2. Wicked Anime :: Episode 100 :: Maid RPG Special

    wickedanime100Wicked Anime brings you awesome animated commentary every other week… but this time, we’re bringing you outrageous, improvised anime adventure!

    For our 100th episode we’re doing something drastically different. We’re celebrating our podcasting centennial by returning to anime tabletop. Once before the Wicked Anime hosts transformed into cliche anime personas for a massive RPG adventure in B.E.S.M. (Big Eyes, Small Mouth), but this time we’re switching genres and going kawaii; this time we’re playing Maid.

    Maid is a tabletop RPG where players become housemaids in a mansion – each of them simply looking to serve and appease the master as best they can. Andrew is the GM and Master of the house, Jojoshiro Kujo-sama (aka Jojo-sama), who lords over a motley crew of servants: albino, street-wise stoic; Jyu (Glitch), amicable amateur scientist; Amuso (Dillon), absent-minded guardian angel; Kaya (Jonathan), and valley girl sociopath; Hanbaga, aka Hanna (Nerdy Show‘s Cap). The girls vie for superiority against each other and a host of supporting characters played by Lerok, as they compete to see who will oversee Kujo Mansion.

    Join us as we roleplay our hearts out for the master, yo! (more…)

  3. State of the Empire :: Episode 28 :: The Return of Obi-Wan

    sote28State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    Like the Death Star, Rogue One looms ominously just beyond our atmosphere. We’re starting to see the shape of it, but the film’s air of mystery persists, even with new trailers and teasers. While there’s still new news about the film to share, it’s the rest of the Star Wars universe keeping us busy as we eagerly anticipate December 15th. Between comics, the novel, Ahsoka, and the happenings in Star Wars Rebels, a new narrative is appearing in the galaxy: the return of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    Join Cap, Doug, Matt, and Colin as we follow new clues. Much like how mention of kyber crystals seeded in books and TV led us to the imminent threat in Rogue One, we’re seeing deeper explorations of The Force as we approach Episode VIII… and all paths point to a small hut on Tatooine. But, as the new Star Wars galaxy expands, is it falling apart? We’ve got a lot to discuss – and that’s just the Star Wars part! We’ve also got one of our longest Willow discussions in ages with a new hope straight from Ron Howard and exciting insight into the film via Phil Tippet’s prop archives. (more…)

    sote27State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    No, this year’s Star Wars shopping spree was much more subdued – not just in turnout, but also in plot insights that could be gleaned new products. That’s not stopping State of the Empire though! Join Cap, Matt, Doug, and Rex as we relentlessly dig through box art details, minifig pairings, and other minutia that might reveal the secrets of the most mysterious Star Wars release to date. We discuss the latest from Billy Dee Williams on the potential re-casting of Lando and dust off an interview with the man himself from the Nerdy Show archives. But that’s not all, hear what the InteracTech Stormtrooper has to say for himself, new casting news, remember the sacrifice of Constable Zuvio, and if you’re brave enough to venture behind the blast doors, we’ve got some interesting details about Episode VIII.

    sote26State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    Season 3 of Star Wars Rebels is here and with it the return of one of the most revered characters in the series: Grand Admiral Thrawn. Hear our thoughts on how this Star Wars legend fared in his on-screen debut and reintroduction to the cannon. But Thrawn is only one facet of the changes and troubles facing the Rebellion: a mysterious Force-sensitive creature, a Sith holocron, foreboding owls, Ezra’s bad haircut… We take on all of it; both spoiler-free and behind the blast doors, for those brave enough.

    Rebels isn’t the big news – Rogue Friday is almost upon us! Soon the Rebellion’s agents will be infiltrating retail stores across the world – but some secrets have already been leaked. We’ll be back for a merch-filled episode of State of the Empire next week, but for now Cap, Matt and Doug pour over what we know about the forthcoming film.
