This Week: #iToons, @Only1Mart Action News, An Episode of Toons and More!

This week will be a busy week at Toons. Here is a breakdown of it all:

First off, we have changed our Official Show Hashtag. Officially. In other words, we will no longer will be using #TagToons on twitter outside of our usual and more-frequent-than-you-would-believe tag team wrestling appearances in run-down high school gymnasiums. From this point forward, we will be using the hashtag #iToons. Follow along. The twitter feed is to the right.

Also, if you look along our site's right side, you will see a few other new sections. Our good friend Mart from the Eat My Goal podcast routinely sends us news articles ranging from disturbing to hilarious and we decided to give him a the corner....of our fictional offices. Well, not really. But we are now sharing those articles with you at the @Only1Mart Action News Desk.

Third, Jack and Brian will be going LIVE on Thursday at 8:30 for an episode of Toons! This will be our THIRD attempt at returning to the Trending Topics Network, with our previous two being technological disasters. Again, our apologies to those who have been patiently awaiting our return and extra thick, gushing apologies to Captain Awesome and T-Mac of the Spanish Announce Table podcast who joined us for the second of those disasters.

No show topic is set in stone at this point, but if you have something that you'd like us to talk about or a question you'd like us to answer, email us at, tweet us using #iToons or by mentioning @ToonsCast.

Or send smoke signals in the general direction of Toons Studios East or the ALL-NEW Toons Studios West. Although that method is, admittedly, not quite as reliable.

OR you can make it really easy on yourself and simply comment in the space provided below this very post. That you're already reading. Convenient, right? We thought so, too.

Fourthly, if you'd like to support the show, we'd love to receive it! If you prefer to offer kind words, we love to hear them. If you would feel inclined to contribute monetarily, we appreciate that as well. Our wives really appreciate it. And we've added a Donate button on our sidebar to allow you to easily do that. Any monies donated will go right back into the shows we do.

He'd wreck it completely on principal.
Then he'd buy another one.

Unless you're Bill Gates and you donate $2,000,000,000,000 thinking that you're buying iTunes. At which point (and this is a legal warning), Bill accepts that that donation would be non-refundable and Jack and Brian would then split the amount between themselves 50/50. They'd probably buy an NHL Franchise with the money. Brian would definitely buy the piece of machinery to the right:

Welcome to the Weekend!

The Problem With Colin Moriarty Isn't Colin Moriarty

There aren't many people that consume gaming news, podcasts and other media without knowing about Colin Moriarty. But for those who are less familiar with the name, here's the briefest of breakdowns:

ICYMI: Microsoft Reveals Games With Gold for August 2018

More free games are coming for subscribers to XBox Live's Gold program n August. Racers and Adventurers delight because here's what you're getting.
XB1: Forza Horizon 2 (Aug 1-31) Playground Games' entry, the seventh in the series, will likely be seen as the highlight of Games With Gold this month thanks largely to the upcoming Forza Horizon 4, announced at E3 2018.

Released in late September of 2014, Forza Horizon 2 put up big review numbers from a number of sites, ending up with an overall Metacritic aggregate score of 86%.

Featuring over 200 cars, the game sold over 2 million copies on the XBox One and Xbox 360 systems combined.
XB1: For Honor (Aug 16 - Sept 15) Allowing for up to 8 players, the ambitious third-person action/adventure title For Honor was released in February 2017. Critics liked it. Players were indifferent.

Pretty much par for Ubisoft's mid-2010s course, really. But, hey. At least it's free!

X360: Dead Space 3 (Aug 1 - 15) Still upset that …

Excuse Our Dust

This week (July 9-13, 2018), I am updating the website. As such, some things may not work or appear exactly as they should during this time.

You may notice that the video game news site RSS feeds that were featured prominently on the previous site are not at the top of the page. As of early Monday, they are not on the page at all. Most of those feeds will be back by the end of the week. Some will not.

One major thing that we've added to the site is the ability to join the discussion via Disqus. There are hundred of sites that already utilize this format so having a Disqus account allows one to comment on any number of websites of literally any number of topics with just one login.

The 1-Up Club has also begun to create content on YouTube, available through the Multimedia tab on our main menu now and on the sidebar by the end of the week. Video versions of The 1-Up Club podcasts will be posted alongside our audio podcasts, hosted on Podbean. This does not include the Johnny Goodti…
