Actually, you don't need ANYTHING extra to enjoy the latest LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN show, except maybe a pair of headphones and a liberal sense of humor. And even though we're doing another videogame-themed podcast (not to be confused with theofficial Spill.com videogame podcast- which you should check out when you get the chance), you don't need to be up on the latest videogames to enjoy the show either. Here at the LEOG we try to included enough fun, merriment and insults to accommodate everyone!
HOWEVER, to enhance your upcoming enjoyment of Vol.5, Issue/Episode #1 here's a few things we cover in conversation it wouldn't hurt you to see first...
New pics of the movie version Green Lantern and Thor & Odin costumes:

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, the possible inspiration for Gaurdian of the Universe, Ganthet:
The latest trailer for the Star Wars: The Old Republic game, for which our special guest, Paul Benjamin is one of the writers:
And finally, the SCORING CHART FORM THE NERD RAGE QUIZ (courtesy of Annalee Newitz at 109):
Add up your score.
0-3 points: Grumpy Fan
You might occasionally suffer from nerd grumpiness, but you keep your
anger mostly in check. Nobody will see your dark side unless they really
provoke you. You are able to behave in mixed nerd/non-nerd company.
4-5 points: Touchy Geek
Woe to the person who finds herself on the wrong end of an argument with
you about your favorite thing, whether that's New X-Men or the Android
OS. You've got really strong opinions, and you're not afraid to share
them. Even in a really quiet place where everybody is looking at you.
Luckily, there are only a few things that really set you off.
6-8 points: Dangerous Dork
It's hard for you to be around non-geeks sometimes. First of all, they
don't know the difference between Firefox and Windows. Which is just -
what the hell. And second of all, they don't know WTF they are talking
about when they say Next Gen is better than original Trek. Sometimes you
just can't stop yourself from correcting them, and then they get these
really weird looks on their faces which just make them even more hard to
understand. Better to hang out with geeks who understand why you are
9-11 points: Complete Freakazoid
Did that guy mess up your game? How about that writer who totally borked
your favorite show? Well, this means war. Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK IS
UP WITH THAT GODDAMN TRAVESTY THAT DARES TO CALL ITSELF A MOVIE? You
really want to know. And you're going to keep yelling about it until
everybody sees things your way. Even if it comes to blows, or a major
flame war that will result in moderators being called in, banhammers,
and certain people's addresses being posted online.
12-14 points: Nerd Berserker
What the hell, dude. Chill the fuck out. Seriously - it's only a movie,
OK? I can't take you anywhere without you flying off the handle and
breaking shit because people don't take games as seriously as you do,
and I can't even hang out with you online anymore because you got kicked
out of every freakin fan forum we're on together. Maybe you should see a
counselor to deal with your geek rage issues. Seriously - it might
help. Ow! Jeez! Hey, that's my super valuable 1970s Ghidorah action
figure! Don't - ! AAAAAAAAAAAA!
