After a week spent exploring a hidden vault in Mt. Rushmore, the boys are back to disect Metal Gear 5: The Phantom Pain! Did Konami ruin Hideo Kojima’s swan song?

Force Friday has the guys hyped for the return of the greatest film franchise of all time!

The guys debate the validity of female action heroes.

And Rowdy Ronda Rousey is set to star in a remake of a Patrick Swayze classic, for the sole purpose of irritating Jack.

Enjoy the show!

  • Stalkeye

    Ronda Rousey is the only Female MMA Fighter I would love to blow my chode in.

  • Stalkeye

    “Kojima loves to respond to his Fans”.
    Bullshit! Where’s my “Favorite” from him after wishing him well, post departure from Konami? ERRRGGGHH!
    That being said, Phantom Pain is great so far. If most of the game is as good as that long ass Hospital escape scene, I’m in for quite a ride!!

  • Stalkeye
  • Bop
  • Stalkeye

    hahahahah! Jack is playing Neco’s Star Wars theme!

    You taking it back ol skool, son!

    Oh, you heard AJ Scratch passed?

    *Pours one for the Deceased Homie*

  • Stalkeye

    Niiiccce. Who is she?

  • Bop

    Gezary Matuda. Multiple time BJJ world champion.

  • *sigh* One “J” too many.

  • Jack Randomm

    HA!

  • Kyle Fulton

    Not exclusively, no, but I can’t pretend it wasn’t a factor.

  • Kyle Fulton

    It is.

  • Tarmac492.1

    whoa.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I fucking love those Picard Memes dude. I can just picture him saying all this shit. Hilarious. Non-stop!!

  • Stalkeye

    Those never get old.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Anybody else think thatJohn Woo’s Windtalkers should have been one of the most interesting actioner/war films ever?

  • Tarmac492.1

    I am listening to this at work without headphones and I dont care if it pisses off the person next to me. She should be gone!! And when she eats her lunch she sounds like a cow chewing cud.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I want to be in a 9 year drunk. That would be fun.

  • Tarmac492.1

    How much coin do these actors make for video games? It must be decent as they get credits on IMDB, so I am assuming it is SAG.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I am not a gamer, but Metal Gear are just two words that belong together.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I enjoyed the Silent Hill movie. Is the game any good?

  • Kyle Fulton

    The first four are truly PHENOMENAL games. After that it depends who you ask. But particularly Silent Hill 2 is just astonishingly good.

  • Kyle Fulton

    I know, right? One of those titles that just rings.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I liked the story of the first film. They really created a world that I enjoyed being in, even though it was a bit creepy. A great American Horror story.

  • Kyle Fulton

    It’s a wide range. I’m sure the big actors get plenty. The usual voice actors, folks like David Hayter, Nolan North, and Tara Strong, tend to make a good living, but they don’t get rich.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Big Corporations are run by people that are usually out of touch with their customer base. How they survive is anyone’s guess. Just my opinion.

  • Kyle Fulton

    Absolutely. It’s not PERFECTLY accurate, but they got the gist of the first game quite well.

  • Tarmac492.1

    a good steady living doing something you really like—yeah, where can I sign up?

  • Kyle Fulton

    Trust me, I’ve been trying to answer that question for years!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I am really getting excited for this new Star Wars movie–JJ or not. I am not ashamed to say it. I have wasted money on less worthy endeavors. Trust me.

  • Kyle Fulton

    Dude, it’s STAR WARS.

  • Bop

    I shouldn’t be laughing, but I really am.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Ahhhhh, what makes an adult anyways???

  • Bop

    I didn’t find out yet.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I wear more Star Wars t-shirts now then I ever did as a kid. Why??? It is my money!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    three months man!!! Coming up quick!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I have no complaints about Revenge of the Sith.

  • Tarmac492.1

    AOTC death knell was the horrid love story.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I dont think Ian McDiarmid got enough credit for his palpatine/sidious role in the prequel. He was quietly menacing when needed to be and he just seemed to be having a blast in SIth. I enjoy these qualities in my villains.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I think Natalie Portman lacks a a certain charisma. We share the same birthday though. I was born in the decade before her.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Leia was pretty tough. She was pretty tough against Vader and Tarkin.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Greedo shooting first nearly completely castrated the Han Solo character.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Ok. I like Road House. Let’s not kid ourselves that it is a great piece of cinema though. It is a good time and all, but………………….

  • Tarmac492.1

    Rousey seems to be pretty motherfucking tough, though.

  • Stalkeye

    Oh, I know. (;’

  • Stalkeye

    Cant tell ya. Have yet to really play it. But goddamn, the RE Games are great!

  • Stalkeye

    The first Movie was good, the second looks lame.

  • Jack Randomm

    Agree wholeheartedly.

  • Jack Randomm

    No doubt. Just a dumb, fun movie.

  • Jack Randomm

    I’ve been telling my girl that with few exceptions, we’re the target audience for the merch. Not kids.

  • Tarmac492.1

    definitely. everyone needs something to blow their cash on

  • Stalkeye

    LOL Shit’s overrated if you ask me. Especially when those called “Adults” are as immature as School Children.

  • Stalkeye

    Any Movie in which the Hammy Nic Cage gets offed, is interesting.

    *BANG* Hallelujah!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I love me some Face/Off. probably a fun movie to review with the hysterics of the two leads. Have you ever seen such smugness in an actioner? Loved those gold-plated dragoon guns though. Woo’s finest Hollywood moment, and the spawn of many lesser imitators.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Rowdy Herrignton, director of studio trash like Road House and Striking Distance. Love that mofo!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I like to always point out to people that working in an office is no different than High School. Nosy cunts.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I had a dream I was cuddling with her and I woke up with a dislocated shoulder.

  • Stalkeye

    LMMFAO

  • Stalkeye

    Preach, Boyo, preeeaaacccchhh!!
    Oh, trust me Bro, I have a Shitload of interesting stories that are bestseller material!!!

  • Bop

    Well, the people calling themselves adults always act as if someone stuck a big pole up their asses.

  • Stalkeye

    it’s one of my favorite Cage films and that fucker nailed it as Castor Troy.
    Not to mention this reaction from one of the film’s scenes..

    LMMFAO!!!

  • Stalkeye

    Full disclosure-I never really thought that much of the X-Men Films with the noted exception of X2 which ripped off Wrath of Khan toward the end.
    The fucking series was more like “The Wolverine Show” and in almost every film Cyclops was disrespected and Wolverine cried like a Pussy.

    Talk about “Off Canon”.

  • Stalkeye

    What I resented the most about AOTC, is the long drawn out Romantic buildup scenes between Anakin and Padme. The Grass scene looked like an ad for a Massengil Douche commercial or fucking Cialis. (They Should have thrown in the trademark “Bathtubs”.)

    Revenge of the Sith was the only prequel that really mattered!

    Dead ass!

  • Stalkeye

    Sad but very, very true Brother. I see these examples everyday while at work.

  • Bop

    That is bloody true.

  • Bop

    I had this female colleague at work who told me she just bought a house together with her boyfriend. 1 week later I went to the toilet at work and I saw her make out with the marketing guy. Fools didn’t lock the door. And no, the marketing guy was not the one she bought the house with.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Love the office ho!!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    The shoot-out with the kid listening to Over the Rainbow is a thing of beauty.

  • Stalkeye

    LMMFAO Oh, Shit my Ribs are aching again!! That’s funny Meng!

    Hey, at the end of the day, Women are just as flawed as Men.
    Y’see, I’m all for equality and both Sexes can be equally conniving and stoopid. (0:’

  • Stalkeye

    Peacewalker is also available for XB360

    Now you know..

  • Jack Randomm

    Yeah, AJ. was a favorite. Oh, I got your message via Abe. Oops.

  • I want some of the Disney Infinity figures but couldn’t care less about the game. Same with Nintendo’s Amiibos.

  • A bar run by her daddy.

  • The Elder Scrolls = Greatest video game franchise ever? Probably.

  • Gee, this Metal Gear Solid sounds awfully complex

  • Kojima has to think about his entire life before he gets on stage.

  • Konami Slot Machine reviews…
    LMAO

  • That Disco Star Wars-theme is killing me
    XD

  • Kyle, have you ever played “Stair Dismount”?
    Very entertaining game
