We’re Back!

Hello there!  As the title says we are back!  Did you miss us?  We missed you. Strictly a platonic missing between friends of course. We don’t want you to think we are pushing to take that next big step in our podcaster/audience relationship… That is unless you think we are ready?  Because we’re game if you are.  If so, let’s take this sucker to the next level.

We have big things coming down the pipe.  Big super, secret stuff (not really).  During our break we looked at what was working and what wasn’t with Pop Culture Radio, and what we could do to fix it.   First thing we noticed was this had become a movie review podcast.  Movie reviews are all well and good once in a while, but that was not the reason this podcast was created.  Why was the podcast created?  To talk about those geeky things we love, or in some cases love to hate.  And what do we love, or love to hate more than anything?  Comics.

We are going to streamline our focus back to comics.  Some stuff you will see in future podcasts will be more comics news and discussion.  Lists of things we want to see more or less of, or characters and teams that don’t get their due.  You will still see the occasional movie podcast, but chances are that it will be because it is a comics related movie (IE: Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Thor 2, etc), or the movie just simply knocked our socks off so that they flew across the room and landed perfectly folded in our underwear drawer (or some other such improbably scenario or location).

Now does this mean there won’t be anymore non-comics related ramblings? No, but it will most likely be toned down quite a bit.

Which brings me to the next big step we are taking with the podcast.  Interviews.  We are going to try and get more interviews with writers and artists, the people who are working and making the comics we are reading right now.  Dig in, find out what makes them tick, why they make some of the decisions they do, and what it’s like working in today’s comics market full of sales numbers doom and gloom.

So please, if you have suggestions or topics you would like to see us discuss, or maybe someone you would like to see us interview drop us a line at realitycheckfail@gmail.com.

Till then sit back and listen to our little five minute rusty ramble, then tune in Sunday, December 9th, for our first big interview with Marvel Now Writer, Dennis Hopeless!

A Valentine’s Gift from Skullgirls.

From Anime Diet

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and the nice people over at Autumn Games and Reverge Labs have sent over a special treat for all you Anime Dieters eagerly anticipating the release of their fighting opus, Skullgirls …

Here comes a new challenger!

Valentine is the newest character revealed for Skullgirls.  She’s a deadly ninja nurse, and the lone survivor of a group of Anti-Skullgirl lab operatives.  However, don’t let her benevolent nurse appearance fool you.  Valentine has switched sides and now serves the Skullgirl willingly, carrying out her master’s duties and striking at her foes from the shadows.  Not much is known about this secretive fighter, only that she is as deadly as she is beautiful.

A long rumored character that has now officially been added to the roster for this highly anticipated game, Valentine is sure to become a fan favorite in this epic 2D fighter.   How many more characters will we see before the official release later this year?

Skullgirls releases early 2012 for PS3 and XBOX360.

You can find more news, sneak peeks, and exciting announcements at the official Skullgirls and Reverge Labs websites.

Publisher: Autumn Games
Studio: Reverge Labs
Genre: 2D Fighting
