    It has been ten years since the last Star Wars movie came out.  That changed this week...if you didn't notice.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode 7) was released this past week with much renown and fanfare.  So the Armchair Adventurers Club took it upon themselves to see this movie milestone in nerdom, and we decided to sit down and talk about it.  We go in depth on the movie itself, as well as some extended lore.  A bit of forewarning, this episode is a special movie episode.  We will be discussing the movie in depth and we will be spoiling the hell out of the movie.  For those of you that have not watched it yet, do not listen to this episode if you do not want to get spoiled.  Without further ado, sit down and listen to us as we talk Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

King for a day! Princess by dawn!

Hello all!  Today Travis and I sat down and discussed Destiny: The Taken King.  Destiny is a video game released by Bungie Studios and in conjunction with Activision, and it's been out for a year now.  Those of you that know me know that I've gone up and down with Destiny, while Travis embraced the game and loved it for what it was.  With the newest expansion released, you might find that our opinions might have changed or maybe they haven't.  The saga of Destiny is long and storied, and maybe we'll run out of time to tell you why we don't have time to tell you.  Sit down and find out!
