Paul schools his fellow nerds on the massively popular alliterative mobile game Clash of Clans. There’s a lot more going on in there than we expected, and a shocking amount of money changing hands.

It’s not ALL dark and broody.

Marvel’s second Netflix series dropped just over a month ago, and it’s surpassed Daredevil in our affections–something we really didn’t think was possible. Like all great genre work, it uses its fantastic elements to illuminate real-world issues faced by real-world people. Its exploration of the effects of rape, domestic abuse, and PTSD feels true and compelling–and it’s presented in a way that makes it accessible to viewers who may not be immediately sympathetic. And yet somehow the show is also deeply entertaining. Truly we live in an age of miracles.

2 out of 3 Minutemen are women.

It’s been out for a few weeks, and we’ve finally managed to pull ourselves away from our platforms of choice (Rob’s on a PC, while Mary and Paul are burning it up XBox-style) to chatter excitedly about the unstoppable coolness of Fallout 4. They’ve improved elements that needed work and left plenty of good stuff as-is. By the time you listen, we’ll have easily clocked over 200 hours between us. Please send food!
