Battlecast presented by Meltdown Comics

First off, thank you guys infinitely for listening to 100 episodes of Battlecast. We're super grateful for you guys, and we'll keep doing the show as long as we have folks like you tuning in.

So for our 100th episode we're doing something a little different and a little special. We're going on a side quest campaign D&D style with a few characters of our choosing. We seek the Draft of the Eldar, an ancient brew rumored to quench one's thirst for eternity. Will we find this legendary brew? Who knows.

Our cast for this week is the Elite Tauren Chieftan himself, E.T.C. (Dan), eastern european car theif from GTA 4, Nico Bellic (James), and one of Alan Rickman's finest portrayals Severus Snape (Andy).

Don't put Battlecasts on your pizza.

Warning: Boss battles are hard.

The exciting finale of Season 8 is here! Andy and James go head to head for the championship while Dan sits in the room and pretends he has a chance with his one character. Andy's force-heavy stacked team of four is Ezra, Mulder and Scully, Kylo Ren, and Leonardo di Vinci. James is rocking another kick ass team with Darth Maul, Lara Croft, The Phantom, and Roland Deschain. Dan has Venom. As always, the Battle Royale revisits all the battlegrounds we've used throughout the season in one edge-of-your-skeet spectacular.

Warning: Dan fell in love with a Tijuana stripper.
 
Dan 1-5, Andy 4-2, James 4-2, Dirk 0-8

Ok, two things. First off... SPOILER ALERT HARRRRRD FOR STAR WARS EP. 7. Second thing. MERRRRRY CHRISTMAS!!1

Cool. It's the last regular season Battle of the season (wut) before we get to the Battle Royale so let's make it count. It's the anonymous bad guy from the new Star Wars movie, Kylo Ren (Andy), vs. the supernonymous rapping Shaq genie from one of the worst things of the 90s, Kazaam (Dan). And duh, it's in Santa's Workshop. Dope.

Battlecasts roasting on an open lightsaber.

Warning: All the spoilers that exists.
 
Also I realized that I stopped posting the weekly record of wins-losses on accident so here:
 
Dan 1-4, Andy 3-2, James 4-2, Dirk 0-8

We noticed we had been way too topical with our character and battleground choices as of late so we decided to do things that are completely irrelevant to anything going on in pop culture right now. It's Hyrule's Female-Identifying Male Link (Dan)... or vice versa...  going head to head with the main dude in Stephen King's Dark Tower series Roland Deschain, The Gunslinger (James). Sudden Valley is the Bluth family development of astoundingly poorly build homes if you didn't follow.

It's raining Battlecasts. Hallelujah.

Warning: Sounds.

It is a period of civil Battlecast.
Andy's Rebel spacedicks have won
many victories against James and
the evil Galactic Empire.

Today marks the final showdown between two Sith titans. Dark Maul (James), a Zabrak from Dathomir will face off against one of the most powerful and hilariously controversial Lords of the Dark Side, Jar Jar Binks (Andy)

Let's join the two in the famed Mos Eisley Cantina and see how it all unfolds on today's episode of Battlecast.

Warning: awkward quiet love-making

Welcome back to Battlecast friend of the show, Ryan Kidd along with BC newcomer (and Dan's bandmate in Gravyyard) Joe Mousey. Today's battle takes place in the much beloved classic American Gladiators arena. The combatants are the also much beloved Peter Dinklage (Dirk for Dan) and much unknown Ezra (Ryan for Andy), a padawan from Star Wars Rebels. Apparently it's a pretty good show. Most of us still need convincing.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Battlecast?

Warning: Music.

Allllllll aboard the Starship Enterprise! That's the Star Trek themed battleground in today's extra girthy episode of Battlecast. We'll be duking it out in space with two sort-of aliens. It's the biggest, baddest, smartest Pokemon around, Mewtwo (James) vs. the tongue waggingest, alienest, Spider-Man counteringest villain out there, Venom (Dan). Pretty legit, huh?

TIL (today i learned) The L in Samuel L. Jackson stands for Battlecast.

STATUS UPDATE: How are we doing on our anti-grosscast challenge? Astoundingly well.

You know what one of the dankiesest movies ever is? Forrest Fucking Gump. So let's hope the wheel landed on it this week as our battleground. It did. Today's combatants are the Tomb Raider herself, Lara Croft (James) vs. a hypothetical main character from any of the Fallout games, A Vault Dweller (Dirk for Andy).

ANNOUNCEMENT!! We have put a three week ban on all grossness after last week's horribly disturbing episode full of things you'd never want your mom to hear.

Today's battle is between a real fast guy and a real purple guy. It's The Flash (Dan) from the pretty damn decent CW show vs. The Phantom (Dirk for James) featuring Billy Zane aka the bad guy from Titanic. It allllll goes down in our hometown of San Diego.

It puts the Battlecast on the skin or else it gets the hose again.
