IC 37: Internet Parenting

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch was on everyone’s minds at the start of the New Year, but why is everyone so down on it? We discuss the film (with spoilers!), as well as the games we’ve been playing this week. We also talk about the movie Roma and Syfy’s Happy!, and a number of interesting places we found on Reddit and YouTube over the holiday.

Netflix is parting ways with Marvel, and the reason why is a bit more complex than we expected. We talk about a Japanese strategy game and a futuristic Nazi shooter, and GIBI features more subreddits and a new YouTuber that Randolf’s discovered. We also introduce our newest segment, You’ve Gotta See This.

IC 32: Spiderman Selfies

Facebook has another breach of user data – when will enough be enough for users to quit it? Plus some mischievous hackers are making PS4 users brick their consoles. Randolf’s getting through a JRPG remake, Michael’s all into Doctor Who right now, and some GIBI with video game selfies and sound-based subreddits.

IC 31: Unwanted Songs and Cut Scenes

News of Telltale Games shutting down leads to questions about their production model, original IP, and stories of overworked developers. Randolf has lots to say about Spiderman on the PS4, and Michael tried the Black Ops 4 battle royale mode a while back. That plus a GIBI with great streaming TV, some weird Twitter videos, and even weirder Reddit threads.
