    Haven’t listened yet, but Dante’s art is extremely cute.

    If there’s some way Dante can make a little sculpture of his illustration this week, I’ll buy it & use it as my Thanksgiving centerpiece.

    Hey man, it looks like Cap is trying to steal a turkey from Sacajawea! Subtle left wing symbolism?

    I think you were kinda annoying this time Stephen. Just because you were the head-to-wall thumping person who won’t give in to anyone else’s ideas. Also continuing to cut off Matthew just got kinda annoying as well, since he is the only person on the other side of the discussion. If you don’t have people on both sides it gets tiresome very quickly.

      Your mileage may vary…

      And if you think I’m annoying in this episode, wait until Saturday….

        d if you think I’m annoying in this episode, wait until Saturday….

        We don’t have to wait for you to be annoying. :D

        At least part of Stephen and I overtalking was a SEVERE recording delay on my end (nearly two seconds delay from the intarwebz) during the show. I don’t recall ever feeling like Steve was overbearing during this show, so what he said about mileage blah blah blah fishcakes…

          Stephen gives you a big hug… “Ah, you big galoot” and then hands you a fishcake.

            On the plus side, I believe I’ve discovered the cause for the audio delay which was causing Rodrigo and I to cut Matthew off and for the seven second delay on Matthew’s end.

      Wait, someone interrupting someone else in a majorspoilers podcast? Surely you jest!

      I mean, it’s not like Stephen’s and Matthew’s friendly competition/rivalry is one of the reasons the podcast is so fun to listen to ;-)

    Dragon Storm is also an RPG/TCG sort of game. But since it’s own and run by two people (copyright 1996 methinks) there probably won’t be a lot of fuss about the name being used for a superhero that has nothing whatsoever to do with the the rpg.

    Oh god, I hope he doesn’t start doing that on Critical Hit. I don’t think Torque knows how to whisper.

    When you guys start reading my mind it’s scary. Usually it’s Stephen since our overly-analytical minds tend to think along similar avenues (geez, there’s a mixed metaphor for y’all) ._. But this time it was Rodrigo… the second I heard the word Dragonstorm I thought back to the Magic Deck, but then Rodrigo starts quoting the oracle text. When I heard that, I started clapping, which rather confused my cats… but not as much as when I went into a crazy laughing fit after watching a YouTube clip of the family friendly TV edited version of Sam Jackson’s line from Snakes on a Plane.

    So, based on your discussion of Marvel 1602 on this show, I bought it, and was so happy I did. What a cool book, and such pretty art.

    Also, “el estormo de dragone!” :)
