We're a geek culture podcast and blog covering video games, music, food and more. We are the kinds of people who evangelize whatever we are into - it could be anything - but it's usually pretty geeky. We're casual, conversational, NSFW and hopefully interesting. We hope you enjoy it.
This week's episode may seem like it's all about the recent Deadliest Catch convention, but it's so much more! Join me, Jinny and Ross as we discuss CatchCon 2010 and the events surrounding this esteemed event. We talk about one boy's wish to be a superhero for a day (and how the Deadliest Catch guys were involved!), Starcraft 2's multiplayer beta, brand new Fallout 3: New Vegas info, free culinary school and a few notable video game releases this week. Be sure to keep your fork, because there's pie (in the form of the song of the week at the end of the podcast). Enjoy this week's barely edited podcast! It's in a near-raw state. It's like hearing how sausage is made. Podcast sausage.
Oh yeahhhh! We're here this week to talk about the continuing saga of Apple's lost iPhone prototype and the recent news of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen's computer confiscation. We also got our hands on an iPad and talk about why you may not find an exact need for it in your life, but you will want one regardless. We give you recommendations for some of our favorite apps, which you can also find links to at the bottom of this post. Download it now and subscribe in iTunes! Listen to it on your iPad! That would be CRAZY!
We're back from an extended break this week with me, Ross and Qais talking about the recent iPhone 4g leak and how it feels like we peeked at our Christmas gifts early. We also talk Starcraft II and Blizzard selling horse armor to World of Warcraft players. While making ass-tons of money. There's also a bit in there about Super Mario Galaxy 2, some stuff about the iPad, Deadly Premonition, Mass Effect 2 DLC and we answer some mailbag questions. Download it!
This week is catch-up to old news week as Jinny, Ross and I discuss the iPad, PAX East, Goozex trading retro games, the Scott Pilgrim movie trailer and the awfulness that is April Fools' Day. Ross dies halfway through the episode, and Jinny and I somehow manage to pull it together enough to discuss the home made soda maker we got recently and what games we've been playing lately. HEY did you know that t-shirts are 10% off until April 16th? GO BUY ONE and enter "boobees" at checkout. Seriously. It's not an April Fools' joke.
Sorry friends. Jinny and I have come down with some sort of nasty illness and do not wish to infect anyone. You could probably get the flu by just listening to our nasally plugged-up voices. We'll be back next week! Hopefully.
Here we have a stark contrast to the robots I encounterdaily which rumble on kicking up dust, flipping through corroded copper wire and Soviet-era munitions. Instead, a blend of Daniel Faraday and GQ, clinical demonstration with minimally exposed innards. This fits everything I want in modern day robotics, an amalgamation of polish and lack of control bottled to order, ID card still unbent and shiny.
Join us this week for a discussion about the super-violence of God of War 3 and the line between anti-hero and villain, a follow up to the Final Fantasy 13 storytelling conversation, the beauty and innovation of Heavy Rain and Jinny's new photography obsession. We answer a lot of mailbag, as well!
Look in horror as it tumbles. Tumbles for you. You don't know why you bought it. Perhaps the promise of "a centuries old secret artisan technique" combined with the self-satisfying DIY gratification making that one clock brought. Little did you realize that this back-wrenching monster is the stuff of nightmares, a real life ode to Puppetmaster with a conveniently translated instruction manual.
Go back to your LEGOs, man. Go back to your solder and breadboards. This way is madness.
This week, join Qais, Jinny, Ross and me in discussing GDC 2010, Emerald City Comic Con, Crackdown 2, Puzzle Quest 2, NBA Jam, indie gaming, Pac-Man and iPhone games like Words with Friends. Lots of gaming stuff in this episode, and tons of mailbag! Thanks for sending in your questions, peeps.
Did you know that you can actually interact with our glorious podcast instead of just sitting there passively listening? It's true! Say you hear something on the podcast that really gets your brain juices flowing, or Qais says something horribly racist and you'd like to give him an earful of "what-for". What do you do? You could always try yelling really loud, but it's likely that we won't hear you (note: we will always try to listen in case this happens. We have listening posts all over the world.) There are multiple ways for you to interact with us.
Mailbag - Send us a question and we may read it on air at the end of the podcast. Questions usually range from "hey, what do you think about this video game" to "hey, I have an opinion about something!". Sometimes people email us just to say hi, or that they love us. Those mails are good too, but they usually don't get read on the air. Some people have even recorded audio mailbags! You can send us those, too. We will play them if they aren't horrible.
Delicious - We use Delicious.com to bookmark things we'd like to discuss on-air during the week. If you use Delicious and would like to send us a link to discuss, just tag it with "for:weeklygeek" and it will drop into our inbox.
Twitter - Our twitter names are on the left side of the webpage. We obsessively check replies, because our lives are wholly meaningless without attention.
The Forum! - Tons of geek-minded individuals like yourself are conversing RIGHT NOW at THIS VERY MOMENT in our official forums. Drop in and say hello. They're nice people.
