On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about what makes a dragon a dragon.

If you live somewhere other than Texas and the winter weather has you feeling down, then grab some hot cocoa and listen Alex and Brandon talk your ears off. After one of the worst starts in the podcast's history, Brandon tries to right the sinking ship with his choice for this week's ABC's of Geekdom segment about a famous Italian video game character. No, not that one. Then they move on to some corrections, including Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Freedom Fighters: The Ray, Mortal Kombat X, Tim Blake Nelson, Witchblade, Shazam, Christopher Masterson, Smaug, and Slipher the Sky Dragon. Before the break, they also cover a bit of news, including the new subtitle for Star Wars Episode VIII, the death of John Hurt, cast by announcements for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, The Predator, and Black Panther, and some details on the upcoming X-Men tv series on FOX.

After the break, they boys come back to discuss a few trailers including the teaser for the Marvel/Square Enix partnership, some gameplay of Robin in Injustice 2, and a new story for Tekken 7. Then they break Dow the nominations for this year's Razzie awards. Then for this week's feature topic, the boys discuss why video games movies are so bad and rack their brains for ways to make them better. Then they finish if the show with Brandon's first ever choice for Fan Fic Fights, this time pitting two old geezers against each other.

Last but not least, Brandon decided that after getting all serious talking about American History X that we needed to lighten things up by talking about a really dumb comedy, so he has chosen Neighbors as the next movie for us to watch and discuss. We'll be talking about that in 2 weeks, so make sure to watch it and let us know what you thought!
