It’s our 27th episode!

This week my buddy Matt Drane is back and we talk about Super Smash Bros, Ant-Man & The Wasp, Avengers 4 (aka Endgame) rumors, Batman: The Animated Series, the return of Young Justice, the DC Universe streaming entertainment platform, a Superman video game that will probably never get made, and a bunch of other stuff. You’d honestly be better off just listening to the episode at this point.

We hope you enjoy it!

SHOW NOTES!

Please watch this tribute to Captain America in the MCU and just try to say he’s not the absolute best of the best of the best.

Follow Matt on Twitter why don’t you?

Corey Smithmier did the show’s closing music “Let’s Be Friends Again: The Series Theme Song”. Corey’s got a band called Strange Wave Connection and you should check them out!

I was planning on skipping ahead in the Gravity Falls Gossiper Classics run to share one of our old Thanksgiving episodes.. but I can’t seem to recall which ones were actually the Thanksgiving episodes.. or if there ever were, in fact, Thanksgiving episodes.

But as I was searching I saw this one and thought, “Oh man, that one is probably way more fun.”

So, in preparation for this week’s release of Ralph Wrecks the Internet (aka Wreck-It Ralph 2), let’s listen to waaay back when Euge and I first saw the original Wreck-It Ralph!

It’s a whole episode of nothing but video games, feelings, and a lot of pop music dance parties! First half: non-spoilers. Second half: spoilers ahoy!

I hope you enjoy it and have a happy Thanksgiving!

It’s our 26th episode!

This week we talk about the Venom movie, the Spider-Man game, and ask ourselves what we would do with “spider-powers”!

All of this plus a brief history of the Friday the 13th movie series, praise for Halloween (2018), and much more!

We hope you enjoy it!

Let us know if we got things wrong, what you would do with spider-powers, and anything else that springs to mind while listening to this episode!

It’s our 25th episode!

WARNING: I start this episode by saying it’s going to be another episode of Comics Rule Everything Around Me, but this turns out to not be the case, and it is instead a new episode of plain ol’ Keep It Close To Me where my buddy Matt and I talk about video games!

We talk about a lot of video games, actually. A lot are comic/superhero related, but there’s a surprise or two in there as well.

We also try to answer some deeply personal questions like “Does being bad at video games make you feel bad about yourself?”

We hope you enjoy it!

Let us know if we got things wrong, what video games you love, and anything else that springs to mind while listening to this episode!

SHOW NOTES!

Here’s an excruciating playthrough of the first level of Superman 64 and a fun video about the history of how one of the worst games of all time happened.

If you’ve never seen it, here’s the Super Mario Bros. 3 commercial I mention this episode. It really pulls off the double magic trick of making SMB3 seem both exciting and like a very big deal without showing a second of gameplay.

Superman for the Nintendo! What could go wrong?

A lot!
