May 9th - via:
In this special Hulk of an episode of The State of Games, Dice is joined by his Super Friends Darrell Louder, TC Petty III, Dan Patriss and Tom Gurganus for a true Iron Man competition of conversation on comics, Kickstarter and cinematic heroism. The Fearless Five discuss the dangers of mismanaging hope in a Kickstarter campaign, why Man of Steel may either save or curse Superman for movie-goers this summer, how we may never see the true Wolverine of the comics on the big screen, and just exactly how Sentinels of the Multiverse, Marvel Legendary and the DC: Deckbuilding Game stack up against each other in a true round-table smackdown. All this, plus Galactic Strike Force, Pacific Rim, zombies, a talking raccoon, how Ant-Man totally rocks, the magnetic attraction of Chris Hemsley and so much more.
