The Weekly Stuff Podcast #175 – Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who Departure & Wii U/3DS Retrospective



It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

This week brings us our first Doctor Who topic of the year – albeit not one we hoped to talk about for quite some time. 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi has elected to leave the show at the end of 2017, and as he’s given us one of the greatest performances to ever grace the series, it’s a real bummer, even as it makes the show’s uncertain future more exciting than ever. We also talk a little bit more about Gravity Rush 2, Sean shares some thoughts on Yakuza 0 and Fire Emblem Heroes, and we talk some recent film and gaming news. And for our second topic, we do a mini-retrospective of Nintendo’s Wii U, which ended production worldwide this week, and an even smaller retrospective of the 3DS, which is still going strong, as we prepare to welcome the Nintendo Switch next month.

Enjoy!

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #174 – Gravity Rush 2 Spoiler-Free Impressions & More!



It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

This week, Sean and Jonathan try to move ahead talking about silly things despite the rapid fall of Western civilization, with updates on Jonathan’s New Game Plus run of Persona 4 Golden, Sean’s thoughts on ‘something’ and Westworld, and their reactions to two weeks worth of film and gaming news, including the death of the great John Hurt and more announcements from Nintendo. And for our main topic, we give spoiler-free impressions of the incredible Gravity Rush 2, out this month on PS4. As big fans of the original game, this sequel blew our expectations out of the water, and there is a lot to break down – with a lot left to talk about when do a more spoiler-filled discussion in the future.

Enjoy!
