Constantly Calibrating Podcast (Gaming & Geek Culture)

This is it, the end of 2014. Listen as we cover our Entertainment of the Year Award Spectacular, before heading into a look at what 2014 did for us, as well as what we hope for out of the first half of 2015.

Then join us at the end as we bid adieu to podcast host Josh, who is taking a leave of absence for the next few weeks due to child spawning shenanigans.

After listening, or even before, let us know some of your best memories of 2014 -- whether related to us or not -- then what you hope to see out of us in 2015.


Thanks for the fantastic ride this last year everyone!

It's that time of the year again, a time when every podcast in the land puts together their end of the year "Best of _____" lists. We here at Constantly Calibrating are no different, having invented the concept of the award show 1,100 years ago. (Look it up in any textbook printed in Josh's basement*.)

This year we're changing things up from prior years, opting to do "Game of the Year", "Film of the Year", and "TV Show of the Year" awards; with this week focusing on discussing the nominees. Comic Story Arc, as mentioned during this show, was cut during recording for several reasons. Join us and let us know your own thoughts in the comments, then tune back in next week for winners!

On the news side of things, we look at the inaugural Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest, talk Sony & Marvel's Spider-Man web fluid filled dick measuring contest, and guffaw about Grand Theft Auto V Online's heist gameplay trailer.

Wait, Spike's The Gaming Awards was enjoyable? Good information came out of the PlayStation Experience? DC Comics is making questionable entertainment choices? Hold on, that last one is actually expected.

That being said, this week we discuss the fallout from The Gaming Awards, including Legend of Zelda, Dragon Age Inquisition, King's Quest and more. In addition, we take a look at the PlayStation Experience, while figuring out Josh's excitement over Grim Fandango & Day of the Tentacle.

That and Marvel casting news, plus DC's Krypton on this week's show!

Merry Thanksgiving to you all! Hope your weekend was stuffed with food and family, or whatever else you crazy kids are doing. Over at the Constantly Calibrating offices (Josh's brain) we were stuffed with Star Wars Episode VII's teaser trailer. We were so stuffed that the podcast is virtually filled to the gills with Star Wars Episode VII discussions. 

Join Josh, Brad, & Brian for an in-depth look at the teaser trailer, plus discussions on DC's Suicide Squad casting notice, and Steam's foray into video game streaming.
