(It’s a real holiday, look it up.) So gather around the internets poorly guarded exhaust port because Jeremy and Jason are back with another podcast to help usher you into the holiday season. Yes, a solid 60 minutes of nerd news pop-culture type talkin’ things (spoiler, real honest to goodness Star Wars news this week!) So listen, won’t you?

This week on the show: (more…)

I have the heart of an explorer, so every-time I am given free reign within the kingdom of a Grand Theft Auto game, I chase after my elusive prize. My white whale.

They say that she is a myth and a legend. That many men have flown out or sailed out to their death (from boredom) in search of her, but I am un-deterred.

This time, though, something happened on my journey. I cannot be sure if this is a discovery, or some kind of siren’s trick, but I know that I was on a different type of ground than I was on when I began, and that is both thrilling and horrifying.

Whenever Rockstar Games pumps out a new Grand Theft Auto game it has a tendency to prefaced with the phrase ‘highly anticipated,’ and if you weren’t currently feeling that for the fifth installment, get a ladder cause that anticipation is about to go through the roof! A video showing actual real honest to goodness not cut scene game play footage for Grand Theft Auto V was released today and wow, just… wow.

Remember when a good sandbox game just meant you could go anywhere on a map that was 15 square miles and stomp hookers at your leisure? Ya… I don’t either.

Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art.

On with the dump!

This week on the supple Bastardcast, your mother lets Jeremy and Jason out of her bed long enough to talk about Free Comic Book Day, Doctorless Who and the Time Lord’s E-Harmony account, the great Marvel vs. DC debate, and the return of four classic Marvel characters to the Disney owned Marvel Movie Universe that will now be completely ignored after being totally abandoned. So, welcome back Matt Murdock!

Also on the show: Fanboys have Fury over Human Torch casting rumor, Ray-J and Brandy (or possibly another pair of siblings) joining the Avengers if “sources” are to be believed, Jim Gaffigan doesn’t care about your toenails and we don’t care about the resulting controversy, and stop, collaborate, and listen as Ziggy Stardust Jr. compares Tom Cruise to Vanilla Ice.

Do you demand more? Alrighty, Jason performs emergency surgery on a couch that may contain a pathway to another dimension, Charlie Day rides a robot like a bronco while it pinata’s the head of a monster with the whooping stick made of 100% boat, and the boys sing an ode to Grand Theft Auto Trevor, patron saint of fucking shit up and wife-beater tees.

All that, vaginal care products, fresh meat for the Hall of Excellence, and the continuing search for Jeremy’s stolen Batman colorforms on this week’s episode of The Bastardcast.

Grand-Theft-Auto-V-Characters

With the release of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V still months away (damn you September 17th, haul ass… I am sick of all this natural light) they just released a 3-in-one trailer to up the anticipation. This time turning the spotlight on the 3 playable leads in the game. First we have Michael, a Sopranos-esque man in the middle of a midlife crisis, next a  San Andreas style street thug named Franklin, and last but far from least is Trevor, the requisite hillbilly lunatic.

Damn this game looks good.

All three characters lives will intertwine in what looks like a big heist finale. The trailer is light on gameplay footage and mainly relies on cutscenes which is a little disappointing but I am willing to let that slide since the game is still months away. PLUS, it has a lot of Trevor, who has quickly become one of my favorite video game characters ever.

‘Do you want me to get my dick out again?’ HA! Classic Trevor.

Oh yeah, the trailer is a little NSFW due to crazy redneck, and its up after the jump. (more…)

We knew it wouldn’t happen going into E3, but we still had hope — and now, as Comic-Con begins, it seems unlikely that we’ll see anything substantial in the way of new footage or fresh details from Rockstar about Grand Theft Auto V, the next installment in the epic urban crime and debauchery series.

What we do have though, courtesy of Rockstar’s Asked and Answered series (and IGN), is two new screenshots from the game. Are these from cinematics, are they from game play? We do not know — but they are from GTA, and for now we’re just going to have to settle for that as we wait for the next crumb to fall off Rockstar’s plate.

Pics after the jump, jump — click more, don’t be wiggedy wiggedy wiggedy wack.
