David is joined by Korey Coleman formerly of Spill.com and who now runs Double Toasted to discuss gaming, movies, politics, and more!

Get ready for that toasty goodness all over your bodies, ARGonauts! David is joined by one of his all-time favorite content creators in this latest ARGcast Mini. Double Toasted / Spill founder Korey Coleman comes on to discuss everything from video game movies to gaming used as a scapegoat in politics.

Korey shares the games he grew up loving (Dragon's Lair) as well as the movies based on games he despises (Super Mario Bros). We also get into how gaming gets used as a scapegoat for real-world violence, storytelling in video games, and how to best adapt a video game movie. Yes, we get into the Sonic the Hedgehog movie controversy. You also don't want to miss Korey confessing the truth on his broken GameCube, and what a Madea video game would play like.
