Push To Regen - Episode 18

January 19, 2013

Holy news bomb, WizKids. Seriously.

Gonna be honest, when the show notes for the episode were written, we thought we'd skate by talking about the Spider-Man setlist, as well as the Iron Man 3 solicits. Easy peasy.

But, NO. Of COURSE not.

Mega. Ton. Bomb.

This week, the guys kick things off talking about the aforementioned Spidey setlist, the Origins national championship dates, as well as covering the solicits for a metric ton of sets - Iron Man 3, The Man of Steel, and Bioshock Infinite (all of which have starter sets!) We also learn about the new Tab App Elite game - well, we learn about the solicits, and see that it looks to be heavily influenced by the Skylanders series of video games - and that's not even remotely close to being a bad thing. We wrap up news with a peek into the leaked month 4 OP kit for No Man's Land, and move into our previews - one of which is a duck facing lord of the underworld (trust me, it'll make sense when you hear the show), the other being a shocking choice.

Our game this week consisted of dwarves and honorary hobbits versus a league of justice. Yeah, you can probably guess how THAT one went.

And in our anchor segment this week, we spend over an hour with 2012 worlds champion Alex Avila, asking him burning questions on our mind, but, more importantly, many of the questions YOU had for him get answered as well.

All that, and we STILL have time for your tweets, emails, wall posts, and the always terrifying Nates Question of the Week - and this time, we make Alex answer with us!

Push To Regen - Episode 17

January 10, 2013

Heyyyy! We made a podcast! And I didn't screw up the save file this time!

That's right, we're back - Episode 17b, 17 Part Deux, 17 the Lesser…whatever you wanna call it, is FINALLY in your ears. This episode sees the guys go over the usual - news, preview, and whatnot. We talk about the AMAZING 12 Days of Clixmas, as well as going over previews of some Amazing figures from the upcoming Spider-Man set.

A battle between a family of bats and some New Warriors took place in Crime Alley - our Common Justice pieces included a girl and a red purse, and a guy who called himself Prime before there were Prime figures.

All that, and we do our 2012 year in review, giving you our Top 5 Figures, 5 Things We Felt Missed the Boat, Favorite Special Object, Favorite Map, and Overall Favorite Set.

And to close it out, as always, we hear from you, our amazing listeners. And we hear from Nate, who is decidedly less amazing than you.

Push to Regen - Episode 16

December 11, 2012

How about that new theme song?

This week, the boys discuss show news, with a smattering of Clix specific news as well. Our previews this week were for the epitome of clear plastic, as well as a nuclear flightless bird-man.

We also go into a pretty in depth discussion featuring the long standing rivalry between the Justice League International and the X-Men, as well as having an Unexpected Segment.

Oh, did we mention pushtoregen.com?

Push to Regen - Episode 15

November 20, 2012

Happy belated Batman and Hobbit release day!

This week, the guys introduce a momentous format change to a couple segments (resulting in more of the same dreck), talk about the news, and discuss two pieces for Common Justice involving a hoodlum and a - sorry, can't tell you. Spoilers.

Our previews this week involve a character of Liefeldian design, and one who would kill you should you look at her wrong. All that, and we've got our normal tweets, emails, Facebook posts, and the always popular Nate's Question of the Week.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to our U.S. listeners - Rob and Jay are truly thankful that you guys let us be a small part of your lives every couple of weeks by inviting us into your brain. What are you guys thankful for this week?

As a special note - one of our long time listeners, Chuck Boswell, let us know about a scenario he's running, and we really thought it was amazing and wanted to pass it along to you guys. Let us - and thusly, Chuck -  know what you think!

KUNG FU: KILLER COMBO!

300 points, Golden Age Restricted (no Tactics).

All figures must have the Martial Artist keyword and NOT be able to use HSS.

After a figure makes a successful close combat attack, place a combo token on their character card. Upon receiving a third token, remove all tokens and immediately perform a KILLER COMBO! Roll a d6: the character may immediately perform that many close combat actions as free actions, stopping immediately if any attack roll  misses.

When a character is KO'd, the controller may pay 25¢ to return the figure to its starting area on its starting line. (Points are still awarded for the KO)

The game ends after 50 minutes; highest score of all tables gets the quarters (preferably as store credit).

All games played on crisis time zone maps (for additional mayhem!)

Push To Regen - Episode 14

October 26, 2012

So...yeah. It's been, what - a month? Two? A year?

Sorry for the delay, sincerely. BUT - as a reward for your patience, you're getting the longest episode of PTR ever! We talk news, we talk previews, we have listener emails, we've got Adventures in Google Voice Transcription, and of course - Nate's Question of the Week!

We also have some great Common Justice pieces featuring a guy with a hit television show, and another that's a chess piece. Our $3 Theme Teams feature the eternal struggle between Science and Armor (you'll find that this was not a true 'eternal struggle'.) For our featured segment this week, we do Drunk Dials, with two characters from DC - a frigid captain and a talllll drink of water, and two characters from Marvel - a lovable thief, and a schizophrenic super-hero (with a seriously awesome mechanic that Rob designed.)

Push To Regen - Episode 13

September 26, 2012

For the first time since episode one - the guys don't sound like they're falling asleep!

We recorded this one early last Thursday, and we're really pleased with how it came out. The guys talk about the Marvel Fan Vote, the - at the time - mystery DC set for May, and the new Amazing Spider-Man set!  We also cover a new series of fantastic articles posted on both the Heroclix.com site, as well as the HeroClix sub-reddit at reddit.com/r/heroclix discussing beginner and intermediate tactics, team building, and rules.

We also, unfortunately, review the Tab App.

Our preview picks this week include Robotic Royalty as well as a woman with a terribly dirty power name. Common Justice is once again back, featuring a feline fatale and a generic shapeshifter. Our $3 theme teams this week are inspired by a new video game release, and we cap it all off with a discussion on the strategy of picking your map.

As a side note, a sincere thank you to all involved who provided us feedback on the things you'd like to hear - we're beyond fortunate to have you as listeners, and we only improve when you tell us where we need to grow.

The show closes with our responses to your tweets, emails, and Facebook posts, and then finishes with everyone's favorite, Nate's Question of the Week. Once again, we provide you with over 2 hours of HeroClix nonsense, and hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we had making it.

Push To Regen - Episode 12

September 11, 2012

As the guys eagerly anticipate the 10th Anniversary set releases, they take some time out to produce the Dirty Dozenth episode! Is dozenth a word? Do I care?

This week, we go over some reveals for Streets of Gotham, thank a listener for our new logo, discuss some new ATA’s, but most importantly give some early information for the first ever west coast Clix for the Cure event. For previews this week, Jay talks about a certain Italian aristocrat with a love for hoodies, and Rob talks about a femme fatale who never saw a relic she didn’t like to steal.

Regular segments include the always popular and well-loved common justice, featuring a blonde guy with pointy ears, and a green guy with a pointy head. We introduce a new segment called ‘Set List’...which I won’t lie, was a last minute choice to get some filler on the episode. Basically, we take our idea for what we think the next sets will be, and give a piece from each rarity that we’d like to see - and you know what that means! We want to see what YOU think should be in the four sets we suggested in episode 11! Give us your #1 pick per rarity (C, UC, R, SR, Chase) for the following sets - Wolverine & The X-Men, Cosmic DC, Streets of Marvel, and Young Justice. Finally, we have our matchup with our $3 theme teams, featuring a collection of purple ladies of love, and the cast of The Craft.

We close out, as always, with our tweets, emails, and facebook messages from our awesome listeners, two wonderful voice mails - one from our fellow Podcast host and good friend DarkLogos, as well as another amazingly lyrical message from Tony. Cap the show off with Nate’s Question of the Week, and you’re set for just over 2 hours of ‘Clix fun.

Our introduction song is "616", produced by Vincent Vandal, performed by Adam Warrock off the album "You Dare Call That Thing Human?" The outro is "The View From Eternity", produced by Ruckus Roboticus, performed by Adam Warrock off the album "The War For Infinity."

Push To Regen Free Action Round 3 - Interview With 2012 Worlds Champion Alex Avila!

September 4, 2012

This was originally going to be part of episode 12 - but the talk went so well and covered so much, Rob and I didn't think it should be cut down to fit the show. So instead - here it is in (nearly) all of its glory! Alex and I talked for about an hour and a half, and it was truly a wonderful experience. We cover everything from strategy, to favorite powers, team abilities, sculpts, comics, and even music. It was a really fun conversation, and I hope you guys have as much fun listening to it as I did doing the interview.

Our introduction song is "616", produced by Vincent Vandal, performed by Adam Warrock off the album "You Dare Call That Thing Human?" The outro is "The View From Eternity", produced by Ruckus Roboticus, performed by Adam Warrock off the album "The War For Infinity."

Push To Regen - Episode 11

August 22, 2012

A week late on recording, and a little late on posting, and at a lower audio quality than we'd like…but here's episode 11!

First, I want to sincerely apologize for some of the audio issues in this episode - you can tell we were out of practice. We hit the table a BUNCH of times which caused some popping on the mic, and we sat a bit far back for most of the episode. We'll get it right next time!

All that said, however, we've got some great content this episode! News this week covered the major news - rules clarifications on replacement characters, and most importantly the all new Vehicle Rules, which dovetailed nicely into one of our two preview talks this week, the Batmobile! We also discussed the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle from the DC 10th Anniversary set - and topped off our show with $3 theme teams featuring the Avengers (b-team) versus the Femizons. The always popular Common Justice this week features the 9th Doctor and an explosive football referee.

New this episode is a segment where we look at higher end pieces that need some love…which we weren't able to come up with a clever nickname for. It's been a heck of a couple of weeks. In this segment, we discuss a Secret Warrior with loyalty issues, an Excalibur villain, a holey Spidey bad guy, and a dastardly villain dressed in the flag of the U-S-of-A.

All that, and tweets, emails, Facebook messages, a truly epic edition of Adventures In Google Voice Transcription, and Nate's question of the week.

Push To Regen - Episode 10

July 29, 2012

Twenty-plus weeks after we started this journey, we’ve arrived at our landmark 10th episode. After our first episode, we honestly thought we’d be lucky to have 10 listeners – and instead, we’ve gathered around us a group of friends that also happen to listen to our show. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – we do this show for you guys, and thank you truly for continuing to listen and support us.

Okay, now that the sappy stuff is out of the way…

We’ve got news! The ultimate Mad Titan has been fully spoiled, we’ve got new ATA’s from Chaos War, some interesting – if vague – information from the latest Clix-A-Thon, all capped off with some preview images from the Batman set thanks to Game Trade Magazine – including the greatest hero you’ve never heard of.

Previews this week include an insane industrialist with a penchant for orange explosives, a futurist who decided that we don’t need no stinkin’ gauntlets, and a one-eyed assassin who likes to get stabby stabby stabby. Common Justice this week brings us a member of the Brotherhood, Excalibur, and the New Mutants who can talk to computers, as well as a king returned. Our $3 theme teams bring you the eternal struggle between Politicians and Rulers.

Finally, and while the dials aren’t up yet – they will be this week – our contest results!! We had 20+ submissions into our Drunk Dial contest, each being incredibly creative and well thought out. One in particular caught our eyes as our winner, but all were fun and smart.

One of the dials submitted features a character called The Cat! He’s based on a YouTube webseries, and it’s a heck of a lot of fun. Check it out!

Our introduction song is "616", produced by Vincent Vandal, performed by Adam Warrock off the album "You Dare Call That Thing Human?" The outro is "The View From Eternity", produced by Ruckus Roboticus, performed by Adam Warrock off the album "The War For Infinity."
