In which, Andrew, Tracy, and the Dude take on a plethora of geeky news. From whether or not Captain America should remain sexually ambiguous to a possible Black Widow solo movie, Steven Spielberg’s return to the fantasy genre, and the fallout from Fox’s decision to eschew Hall H at SDCC this year, we discuss it all.

I’m also excited to see more of Cap kicking ass.
And remember, kids, 60% of all S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarriers crash!
Finally, an new article from IGN regarding the future of the Final Fantasy franchise. Unfortunately for me it looks as thought they are moving further and further away from the game mechanics that I enjoy most, namely the combat system. I can understand that they want to keep the games competitive and fresh, but I really preferred the older systems.
Guess I’ll just have to stick with the classic to get my kicks.
