Roller Skates

This is a public service announcement, mostly for Yosh the Scientist, but also for all you other old souls out there. Roller Skates are out, Roller Blades are in. It makes sense on all levels. Roller Skates = Death. Roller Blades = tons of fun. Don’t believe me? Here’s what happened to Yosh when he took some Skates out for a spin:

Lexus Hoverboard

hendo_68316

We promised and now we deliver. Lexus has recently unveiled their fully functional hoverboard. Back to the Future fans have dreamed of this moment for a long time. However, it is a slightly veiled announcement. They don’t try to hide the fact that it is too good to be true because for it to work you have to buy the entire skate park that goes with it. As many have said before, it seems the only way to get a hoverboard to work is if we use magnets. That’s what Lexus did, building a skatepark with steel bars under every surface, including the water features in the park. So yes Biff’s goons, this overboard DOES work on water. Don’t believe me, watch the video!

Kings Quest

maxresdefault

The old Sierra game Kings Quest has been reimagined! Three of us played it and discuss it on the podcast and we were not disappointed. This is definitely a good game to pick up if you like adventure games and solving puzzles. So far you can download the first story Chapter 1 and after that they will continue to release stories for the game as they make them. Its good for kids too! Want to hear more about it?

Better Times Ahead

test-pattern

Everyone knows it is difficult to get any kind of schedule going during the summer. Things are no different with Cue Plot Device. We’ve done our best to pump out full episodes on a regular basis and we’ve been slipping up recently. However, members of the crew will have their personal lives settling down in the next two weeks which will allow for better scheduled recording times. This also means that the website, Facebook account, and Twitter account will be more regularly maintained.

We apologzie for the slight mess but as you can see the website has been given an update and we’ve got a new minisode up with a full length episode coming this week. The crew of Cue Plot Device thanks you for your support and for visiting our page and interacting with us.

We don’t want your money, just your input! Reviews, ratings, and emails to cueplotdevice@gmail.com are all we want. Give us suggestions on how to make the show better and we will take them to heart. We do this for fun, and we want it to be something people enjoy listening to. Thanks again for listening!

Super Girl – First Look

Well, if you listened to the episode, you’ll know that none of us were really impressed with the First Look for the upcoming TV Show Super Girl. But we are trying to stay optimistic. Judge for yourself!

Valerian and Laureline

15537142

This is something that really deserves more attention. Maybe we will do a Minisode on it. For now what you need to know is Valerian was a French Graphic Novel series back in the day:
1374557Valerian_and_Laureline
In 2007 it was adapted into a French/Japanese TV-series called Time Jam: Valerian and Laureline. Below we give you a promo from the TV Show. Hopefully we will figure out where you can actually watch this amazing show.

The fun doesn’t stop there! Luc Besson (Creator of ‘The 5th Element’) has announced his new project is a movie titled ‘Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets’.

We hope you take the time to check out this awesome time-travel space adventure and we look forward to seeing what Luc Besson is capable of these days.
