Consumed Episode 7: Legend of Korra, Diablo 3

Consumed Episode 7 is up today. It features the full crew of Nat Sylva, Max Cantor and myself, covering two primary topics and some new experiments in media.

The first big topic is a season round-up of Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra. We scratched our heads over the ending, but have to praise an excellent piece of animation. Or at least, two of us did. One of us may have ditched out in the first episode.

The second topic is Diablo 3 and its dreaded Having experienced so many ridiculous errors and played so many hours of a fun game, I have a lot to say on it. We got into my favorite underlying topic as well: if Diablo 3 is a great game, or just a competent execution on a genre that is always fun when done competently.

Korra and Diablo sandwich our experiments: each of the hosts brought something they deeply want our audience to watch, and each of us got sixty seconds to convince you. I won't spoil mine, but I will promise that it allowed me to discuss Goku Vs. The Terminator. Please vote in the Comments on which thing (or things) you were actually swayed to check out.

You can get Consumed Episode 7 for free right here.


  1. I have loved "The Legend of Korra" this season. It is so great to have anything Avatar-related back. I was a little surprised at the ending as well. Me being rather a dreary sort, I would have left it more dismal and had the resolution be a part of next season. (Excuse my being cryptic here. Trying not to give it away for those who haven't seen it yet.)

  2. On the podcast we discussed the possibility of the team only being given 26 episodes, and therefore rushing to tie this season up as the next 14 episodes would have to contain everything else they wanted to do. I dearly hope not. I adored most of the season and would like this show to run for a long time.

  3. I agree, Karen; though I don't think one necessarily needs a dismal approach to leave things unresolved: it's just good writing! They wrapped things up terribly quickly, and I think they squandered some of the preceding season's wonderful buildup of tension and gravity. I made sure to bellyache about it on the podcast. :-)
