“Konichiwa, True Believers! We’ve got a kawaii caper for you this evening, in the classic Marvel style!”

We’re not gonna lie to you, folks: thanks to some Jay-shaped technical difficulties, we actually recorded this episode of the Hey Poor Podcast two weeks ago and are just getting it up now. Whoops. Hopefully Comic-Con is still relevant in this, the dark future of August 2017.

To make up for it, it’s an extra-long, extra-chunky episode featuring appearances from all your favorite HPPeople: I “I’m Too Sick For Jokes” Coleman, Nathan “Credit Card Out” Terencio, Jay “I Know We’ve Gone Long On This Already BUT…” Petrequin, and Anthony “I Forgot What Narnia Was For A Second” Spivey. We’ll continue the ongoing Centaur VS Dead Centaur debate, ink ourselves talking about Splatoon 2, and explain why everyone else is wrong and you should go watch Valerian. Plus: everyone but I is still wrong about Ant-Man, Jay and Anthony think 2017 might be the best year for games ever, Nate gives us the rundown on how the Yu-Gi-Oh card game is trying to unf*ck itself, and somebody does an incredible impersonation of Stan Lee that everyone else just kinda sleeps on. All this and more, on the Hey Poor Podcast!

Games/Films/Etc of the week: Splatoon 2, Stan Lee’s The Reflection, A Centaur’s Life, Iron Tides, Yu-Gi-Oh! (the card game), Aven Colony, Antihero, DOOM 2016 Update 6.66, Solstice Chronicles: MIA, Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets

Audience Questions: Most anticipated upcoming releases, best game enemies, favorite type of soup
