Famicom Dojo Podcast: Audio Bonus

Famicom Dojo Podcast 89: Audio Bonus

Sometimes the show runs a little long, or goes completely off-topic. That’s when we create an audio bonus, exclusively for the website! When we first started the podcast, we fully intended to create such extra content to help drive traffic back to the website since there was no other way to listen to it. But, as it turns out, people just don’t find that enticing! So, despite the desire to keep things “exclusive”, we want to share these audio bonuses with you in a way that most listeners will actually be able to hear it. They’re just so good! Sean and Vinnk comb the three year history of the Famicom Dojo Podcast for its best extras, and put them into this one episode: Vinnk unveils the hidden secret behind the unlicensed developer Color Dreams, Sindra and Vinnk bond over their love of Silent Hill, Sean gives a brief history of Superman films, and also explains how he got started making videos… before he was old enough to shave.

J.J. Abrams to direct Star Wars Episode VII


While it has not been officially confirmed, the internets are buzzing that JJ Abrams will direct the new Star Wars movie. The seventh in the franchise, the movie will take place after the events of Return of the Jedi. Word has it that Ben Affleck was also in contention to direct, but Kathleen Kennedy, the producer, was courting Mr. Abrams as the top choice.

Roberto Orci, co-writer of the recent and forthcoming Star Trek films, seems to think the news is quite true.
He commented on his twitter account.

“@naddycat: @boborci Any chance you can confirm/deny about Mr Abrams directing Star Wars? So far just a lot of “sources say”…” True!

Abrams’ latest film, Star Trek: Into Darkness, is set to be released to theaters May 17. Reaction is mixed. While many are excited, others are apprehensive that the Star Trek director will helm the film for the main franchise competitor, Star Wars.

Who knows, maybe we’ll see Keri Russel as an extra…


[UPDATE] Disney has confirmed that JJ Abrams will direct Star Wars Episode VII!
