As the three fend off law school finals and holiday work schedules, Kiersten and Alex talk about their dream Pokemon game for a holdover episode in the middle of our Harry Potter conversation. It's got contests, cheeky rivals, a trimmed pokedex, and -- possibly -- a new level cap?
I have not completed I Am Setsuna. This might invalidate a review to some people but god booting up this game immediately sucks all the energy from me like a dementor. Which is a real shame, because I wanted to like I Am Setsuna. I really did. The art is pretty, the aesthetic is nice, … Continue reading I Am Setsuna: A Depressing Game, but in the boring real way.
Life, am I right? Really sneaks up on you sometimes. We do apologize for the lack of updates over the past two weeks.

How about I tell you about Overcooked real quick to make up for it.
The fourth entry in the Harry Potter film series has a tough act to pull off. The film (along with 3) is a bridge between the "gee-whiz" magic of the first films and the political thriller tones in the later movies.

Kiersten does a reading of some wild Harry Potter based, uh, sensual literature and doesn't know there was a difference between the word gentile and … Continue reading CPBC #31 – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Welcome Back! Sorry about the delay, all three of us are traveling this week, but Alex and I were able to sit and do a quick interview about our GMing styles. I had a really fun time speaking with him and it was very cool to hear what my first ever GM thought of the … Continue reading CPBC #30- A GM Interview
This review contains spoilers. Whatever I have to say about Joker, I have to start with this: It was a powerful movie. When Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) kills talk-show host Murray Franklin (Robert De Niro), it is a powerful scene. The brake lines are cut on his psyche as soon as he walks through the … Continue reading Joker was an upsetting, unpleasant mess
Two days ago I called my GM and good friend Julian over discord, we were supposed to be playing Stardew valley but the server gods were against us and for the life of me I couldn't connect over to our beautiful homestead. The Julian said "there's a KFC dating simulator on Steam and it's free" … Continue reading I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator
