We are praiseworthy of Take Shelter and we ponder the physics behind Captain Forever.

More of the usual waffle. This time we talk about the following:

Disappearance of Alice Kreed

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Jumping Jack Flash

Buried

Botched

Hunter Prey

Cowboys and Aliens

Halo Reach

Rock Band 3

And features music by:

Schneider TM
Sand , Norton White & Select´╗┐

And here’s a nice making of collage:

A real treat for you, dear listeners, with this week’s podcast. I think this episode will really highlight how in touch we are with our demographic. We bring you a live-play of the Jason Donovan “Straight From The Heard” boardgame!

We discover that either there are some pretty glaring game design flaws at work; or Duncan & Derek cannot grasp the rules of a board game designed for 7-year-old girls.

Podcast link below this picture.

Jason Donovan - Straight From The Heart!

We were to include the Alice in Wonderland reviews, but this is still in editing. I doubt many of you could stomach 45 minutes of barely audible recording.

Chime

(And Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth and you waffling about Plants Vs Zombies – Derek)

Films!
Rambo: First Blood: Part 1: Rambo
Ice Pirates
Youth in Revolt

(And Princess and the Frog featuring Janine reviewing – Derek)


Hmm, there doesn’t seem to be much there, but we will somehow waste 1 hour of your life. (That’s because you forgot to include two other games AND YOUR WIFE – Derek)

Music!
“Zombie on your Lawn” – Laura Shigihara
“As We May Think” - Revolution Void
“Biomythos” - Revolution Void

Some kind of new feature where YOU the listener vote on whether or not the next Iconochromatic will actually have any content. I predict no votes either way.

game review


Games!
Plants vs. Zombies
Be Rich!
Company of Heroes

Films!
Invictus
The International
Keanu something something shouting car boots (He never remembers my film reviews preoperly. It’s The Night Before – Derek)

Music!
End of Data – “Sahrah”
Medio Mutante – “Corre Corre” (with kind permission)

Arguments and confusion, as Duncan recommends that the ideal length of a podcast is 1 minute 20 seconds, Plants vs. Zombies is disagreed over, and we fail to sell you an obscure d4-based wargame.
