Kicking off with our huge announcement! That’s right, digitalSoup is an official member of the GonnaGeek.com Podcast Network!  The guys then dive into some more of Jason’s PC woe’s and his plans on his next build which includes the new Ryzen SKU. Atari announces the Ataribox, a mystery machine in the making. Samsung finally releases their new Frame TV at a premium price and then the conversation stays with TV and movies including a potential John Wick TV spinoff and a “What If” discussion about movies swapping cultures. Plus move over Pokemon Go because Garfield Go is now a real thing!

 

Weekly Riddle:
A man is trapped in a room. The room has only two possible exits: two doors. Through the first door there is a room constructed from magnifying glass. The blazing hot sun instantly fries anything or anyone that enters. Through the second door there is a fire-breathing dragon. How does the man escape?
Answer at the end of the episode!

 

Atari is working on a new console called the Ataribox?!?!

Atari CEO Fred Chesnais told GamesBeat in an exclusive interview that his fabled video game company is working on a new game console.  Chesnais declined to describe a lot of details about the console. But he said it is based on PC technology. He said Atari is still working on the design and will reveal it at a later date.

 

Samsung’s Frame TV

The TV that looks like a piece of framed artwork on your wall is now available for purchase for the low price of $1999 - $2799 plus up to an additional $500 depending on how you want to customize the materials and look of the frame.

 

A John Wick TV Series in the works?
It looks like we'll be seeing the universe of John Wick, the super mysterious world of assassins, brought into a TV Series mode. While no networks have been announced just yet, it’s in development at Lionsgate and is going by the working title of “The Continental”. Keanu is not the star, but is slated for guest appearances.

 

Garfield GO!

So in a true knock off of the popular Pokemon GO Mobile game, apparently Garfield GO is a real thing. Described on their site as a “brand new augmented reality treasure hunt game, featuring everyone’s favorite lasagna-loving cat!” you can now go adventuring with Garfield. Looks to be available on both iOS and Android and available in the US, Canada and Australia.
