Constantly Calibrating Podcast (Gaming & Geek Culture)

Much like Deadpool and Harley Quinn cosplays, there are some franchises and properties that just won't die. The gang tries their best to tackle some of these slippery IPs.

 

What gives a franchise longevity, even past its originally intended lifespan? Is it that they are just popular enough and endearing enough that there will never be a time without them -- can’t wait till Mighty Morphin Super Ultra Space Ninja Dino-Rangers)? Or are we just so nostalgia-heavy in popular culture that we gloss over the obvious flaws and pitfalls of our childhood faves?

 

Neither of the latter two questions are answered directly, but are a part of our extended look into the problem with undead IPs.

 

And if you stick around at the end of the cast, you might find yourself in spoiler-infested waters while we discuss how all of us somehow saw Ant-Man around the same time.
