Geek to Geek Podcast

In This Episode: This week it’s time to talk about what we’re proud about in our gaming history!  After last week’s gaming shames we decided to discuss the opposite.  Beej and Void land in very different places with where they feel proud in gaming accomplishments.  In many ways, Beej's gaming prides are socially based, looking at how he's made various accomplishments with different online communities such as World of Warcraft, Star Wars Galaxies, and all the way back to Ultima Online. Void is impressed that Beej might have been the person who invented Lootboxes, haha....

Geek to Geek Podcast

In This Episode: Gaming shames are an interesting topic. People talk about what games they should have played or things that everyone should have done, and if they haven't, they should be ashamed of themselves. For one reason or another. We wanted to talk about that. Beej got the idea from 's Discord when they were talking about RPG shames. So thanks, y'all! We talk about various things like Mario games to Assassin's Creed Rogue, all the way down to Beej just giving up on bosses and watching the endings of games on YouTube. But the real question is...are they ashamed of themselves? You'll...

Geek to Geek Podcast

In This Episode: We talk all about pulling old game concepts and genres up to modern standards and making them feel new!  We dig into the idea of taking an old idea lying fallow and make it new and interesting again.  Where’s the line between homage, rip off, just establishing a new genre, ongoing series? Void playing Valorant is what spawned the idea because it feels so much to him like a Counter-Strike follow-up. Whether that's good or bad, we can't say. But he knows that's how playing it feels. So is that theft of the CS idea? Or is it revitalization of an old formula, giving it...

More Episodes

Fallout 76 & Multiplayer Gaming

In this episode:

  • Void has been playing Fallout 76, Red Dead Redemption, and Draglia Lost which has gotten him thinking about where we both stand with multiplayer games at the moment.  We dig in about what’s working for us and what’s not.
  • We are both in a very similar place in terms of not wanting to devote a ton of time to them for no reward, but the way we want to dig in on that is different. Beej is into the more asynchronous multiplayer games right now, while Void looks at Dragalia Lost as a perfect casual filler because you get real-time interaction by killing raid bosses.
  • RDR2 is a fun experiment, but Void wanted a Wild West Horsey Game and has instead been given a Work Your Way East Oops Now You Are In New Orleans Horsey Game. It is a fantastic technological achievement, but Void wonders if the game may be better multiplayer because the world is so interesting, but the story is going in a direction he's not happy with.
  • Additionally, Fallout:76 has some good ideas and looks promising, but the storytelling is hit-or-miss because of it being done through audio logs and terminals. While that isn't a bad thing on its own, the fact that you tend to be in a voice party with others means that you can easily miss pertinent information and narrative because your party is either talking or wants to move on.
  • Additionally, the Fallout:76 world feels kind of artificially empty because of how the story is being told right now. That may change as the game opens up, though. This is beta, after all.

Geek Offer of the Week

Weekly Geekery

  • BJ did some MCU rewatching with Spider-Man Homecoming and Infinity War, is still playing Marvel Strike Force, and gets to go watch a live show of Double Dare.
  • Void gives a Gamefly update on Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Dragon Quest XI, Yoku’s Island Express, and Labyrinth of refrain: Coven of Dusk.  He also accidentally tangents the podcast onto the topic of different generations with a discussion of the book Breathing Machine: A memoir of computers.
