Geek Speak #8: Smash Bros. Gets a Cinematic Universe

This week we complain about the overuse of cinematic universes (again) and the eventual entertainment crash.



Welcome to the eighth episode of Geek Speak! This time we talk about the huge Nintendo Direct from last week, and give our own ideas for Smash characters we want.

The topics we cover this week are:

  • Nintendo Direct: Splatoon Amiibo, Yoshi Amiibo, Lucas announcement
  • Ideas for characters for Smash
  • Zelda delay
  • Hugh Jackman’s last X-Men film is The Wolverine sequel.
  • Transformers’ “cinematic universe”
  • X-Files coming back
  • Playdoh Movie
  • Our weekly segment where we pit two characters from across the geek universe against each other in a random challenge to “officially” rule on that classic question: Who Would Win? In short: ‘WhoDaWin.’ This week features the Dumb and Smelly Adam, Avatar Korra, Link  and more.

And that’s it for this week! Geek Speak will be a weekly show posted each Saturday. See you next week!

Are we being too cynical? What characters should we have as Smash DLC? What old and forgotten board game should be turned into a movie next? Let us know in the comments below or email us at
