The Tales of the Con Podcast is an unfiltered look at Comic convention culture and all things nerd & geek, while cracking jokes and telling real-life stories.

Ep. 96 – Living in the upside down, Red Dead 2, and boycotting Solo

Fred and Chris discuss the messed up timeline we’re living in where celebrities excitedly inject baby foreskin juice into their faces. We talk about Phoenix Comic Fest 2018 plans, closed game studios, why we don’t want to see Solo: a Star Wars story, and we geek out about the upcoming sequel to Red Dead Redemption.

 

Ep. 95 – Infinity War Spoilercast and Canadian breeding practices

We give our spoiler-filled thoughts on Avengers Infinity War. Fred laments about how Justice League failed where Infinity War succeeded. Amongst other topics, we also discuss the apologetic practices of maple induced canadian breeding and whether or not Michigan is just the “deep-south” of canada.

Ep. 93 – Why are good story driven FPS games so rare?

Far Cry 5 brings up the question: Why is it so hard to make a compelling story driven first person shooter? Fred and Ian try to convince Chris that all-human-centaurs, or “humanataurs” are the best mythological creature.  And other nonsense.

Ep. 89 – Video Games Live and St. Paddy’s hangovers

We recap the experience of seeing the “Video Games Live” music event. Fred is super hungover following St Patrick’s day, but we muster through and get some traction. We discuss being the generation between Gen X and the Millenials, we grew up in an analog world and grew alongside the digital world.

Ep. 88 – SJWs vs Star Wars, and the hidden meaning of Beethoven’s music

We get real silly for episode 88… Topics include: Monster Hunter World, SJW’s and snowflakes are in a tizzy about the new live action Star Wars series from Jon Favreau, and the true meaning of classical music. Professor Mariano begs the question; “Was BEEthoven into scat?”
