This week the gang takes a look at the fall TV season and goes off on a multitude of rabbit trails related to TV writing, Internet writing, and the overall landscape of media consumption.
Along with that they talk about their experience with the recent Star Wars Battlefront Beta, highlighting the pros -- true to the source material in sights and sounds -- as well as the cons -- imbalanced teams and spawn points.
We hope you will have as much fun as we did with this week’s Constantly Calibrating! Tune in next week for the unofficial part

It’s 2 v 1 this week as Brad takes on Brian and Josh in a discussion of where Destiny went wrong in Year 1 and whether The Taken King is truly worth investing in. We cover “power creep” and DLC in this week’s episode as we try and figure out what changed Brad’s mind about Destiny while the other continue to be stubborn in their ways.
Should games be accessible to all, or only some?
How much is too much for expansions that may or may not add to a game?

This week, Justin and Brian infected the other hosts (no pun intended) so they could talk their hearts out about TwitchCon and the current landscape of streaming.
While Brad and Josh nurse themselves back to health, the other two talked a bit about eSports, copyright flagging, and miraculously they managed to bring up Metal Gear Solid V yet again.
For more of the two stooges, grab an earful of this week's Constantly Calibratin

You thought we were done talking Metal Gear Solid? Ha. You thought wrong
This week the team loses a member, while the rest stick around and talk about The Phantom Pain. Brad tries his best to stay engaged and mostly doesn't fall asleep; we think. Justin also challenged Greg Miller to a Metal Gear-off on cast. So that’s a thing
Before talking MGS, we talk a little about anthologies and collector's editions, as well as theatrical re-releases. All the old things are new again!
Not sure if I missed something in the description or not?
Listen and find out on this week’s Constantly Calibrating!

This week the gang reminisces about their shared experiences with the Super Mario franchise over the years as they celebrate 30 years of Mario.
Along with their mustached companion, the guys touched on the ramifications of the upcoming Pokémon GO, hope and pray for Legends of the Hidden Temple to come back on the new 90’s Nickelodeon channel, and Brad and Josh talk a little Starcraft II.
All that and all the rabbit trails and tangents you could ask for on this week's Constantly Calibrating!

This week, the guys cover Josh’s glorious trip to GameStop EXPO 2015!
What did he see? What did he play? How did he smell?
We may or may have not gotten to all of these questions in hearing about his crazy exploits playing the hottest new games!
Elsewhere in the cast, we talk about pending Star Wars goodness/shenanigans, the life and times of Marty O’Donnell, and gush just a tad more about Metal Gear Solid V.
All this and more on this week's Constantly Calibrating!

This week, Justin gets excited prematurely in the new entry into the Metal Gear Solid franchise, The Phantom Pain. He then proceeded to get his excitement all over the rest of the guys until he had at least two of them interested. Brad however was more about that Infinity 3.0 life, and is holding it in till next week to explode on the rest of the group.
The guys also debut two new streaming shows, and Josh "gets to go to Gamestop Expo" and "just got done trying Battlefront and oh my isn't it FANTASTIC?", which we will get into more next week!
This and more on this week's Constantly Calibrating!

Like for realsies.

This week, ConCal covered Community vs. Fandom. They looked into the void and the void happened to be very amicable. It carried conversation pretty well, and its partner is very nice. The guys might go over for tea sometime.
They asked such daring questions as:
What makes a good community?
What does a community look like when it goes bad?
Can a community exist without a fandom, and vice versa?

This week, the gang covers gamesom 2015 in brief, in an effort to bring you the full brunt of their time at Rooster Teeth Expo 2015 -- the second year for ConCal. Brad gets filled in with everything from the media room, we shout out to PWNEE and Twin Stick Radio, and it's possible someone got into a dance fight with peeps from Rocket Jump. Maybe?
