S5E46 - PS5 Review - “It feels like a zipper”

11/19/2020
In This Episode: This week Void and Beej do a full PS5 review based on our first week with the new console. The guys have some radically different experiences and takeaways. It’s an interesting launch to a new console generation. The main reason being that, as long-time listeners know, Beej and Void have completely different methods of playing video games, so their experiences with the PS5 and its features are equally different. The whole thing is a fantastic discussion, however, and both...

S5E45 - The Mandalorian Season 2 - “He’s a Frog-i-vore”

11/12/2020
In This Episode: This week Void and Beej discuss The Mandalorian Season 2 with the kickoff of the first two episodes and what they anticipate the rest of the season has in store. There’s a lot to like here even though it’s still early on. Weekly Geekery For geekery, BJ spent bunches of time doing a variety of flavors of D&D with friends and family. Void finished off Hades and wrapped up his goals in this season of Fortnite in anticipation of the new consoles and new AAA games coming out...

S5E44 - Watch Dogs: Legion - “6G Grandma”

11/5/2020
In This Episode: This week Void and Beej talk about Watch Dogs: Legion and how it just feels out of step with where we are as a culture and a society. Despite that, it’s a fascinating lens to look through at the world and at the AAA open world genre in general. Weekly Geekery For geekery, BJ is still into World of Warcraft and has made more leveling progress compared to last week. He also got more time to play Dungeons & Dragons in a few different campaign settings. Void has been...

S5E43 - Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian - “The Volume is just a cool branding name”

10/29/2020
In This Episode: This week Void and Beej talk about Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, especially the episode about the new technology that ILM and Unreal made for Disney to use in making The Mandalorian! We’re getting really hyped for Season 2 to kick off so this was the perfect subject to get our heads back into The Mandalorian universe. Weekly Geekery For geekery, BJ is back into World of Warcraft and is finding a new community to play with regularly. He also has been dipping back into...

S5E41 - Star Wars Squadrons - “Power to shields”

10/15/2020

10/8/2020

S5E39 - Super Mario 3D Retrospective - "The best game that no one should play"

9/29/2020
We’ve been playing a bunch of 3D Mario games. Which makes sense because it's the 35th anniversary of the release of Super Mario Bros on NES all the way back in 1985. We even did an issue of PRESS START on Mario at https://patreon.com/geektogeekcast! Beej has been playing a TON of Mario games, not just 3D ones, either. But he finally beat Super Mario Odyssey and likes it a lot more than he did beforehand. Between Super Mario 3D Land and World, the level-based platforming is covered, the New...

S5E38 - PS5 and Xbox Series X Pre-Order Hype - "What to play on day one?"

9/24/2020
In This Episode: This week Void and Beej are buying into some of the next generation console hype around PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X… and questioning some of the hype too. From pricing to pre-orders to what we pulled the trigger on, we discuss a little bit of all of it. Weekly Geekery For geekery, BJ finished up some comics on DC Universe, played Kirby Triple Deluxe, watched West World Season 3, and started reading Dune again. Void actually finished an anime for the first time in a...

S5E37 - Action Game Shows - “Tom Hanks is good, for sure”

9/17/2020
Action Game Shows are truly amazing. Whether we are kids watching Nickelodeon GUTS and Legends of the Hidden Temple, or we're adults binging Ninja Warrior and The Floor is Lava, these kinds of reality shows are never not fun to geek out about. What got us thinking about this was watching the Jedi Temple Challenge on YouTube. Think of it like a Star Wars-themed Legends of the Hidden Temple that's Hosted by Ahmed Best (formerly Jar Jar Binks, but now a Jedi Master!). He is joined by a snarky...

S5E36 - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered - "The first is most excellent"

9/10/2020
In This Episode: The remastered edition of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles just launched, and Void and I had planned on buying it and playing the heck out of it for a long time. But as more announcements came out about how it was being handled, the less likely we were to get it. We decided, however, to try the Lite version (demo) that gave access to the first 3 dungeons in the game, and let anyone who connected to a full account have full access. This is what we thought of it all. You can...

S5E35 - Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 & Recent Game Pass Games - "They don’t know where the birds are"

S5E34 - DC FanDome's Coolest Announcements - "I’m going to buy more comics now"

8/27/2020
This week we talk DC FanDome and BJ’s surprise full day of watching it when he wasn’t planning on it. Void watched all the trailers after the fact and has some thoughts on the video games that got announced. Much hype ensues. Beej had planned on watching 1 or 2 sessions about Wonder Woman 1984, but ended up leaving it on all day, just streaming, and maybe missed an hour or two total, but it was so much fun. With the lack of pop culture news and how serious everything has been, it was so...

S5E33 - MTG Jumpstart - "Oh yeah, I want the +1 unicorns"

8/20/2020
In This Episode: This week we talk Magic: The Gathering Jumpstart, the completely new format that Void loves (link below). MTG Jumpstart is both an online format that Arena uses as special events, but also an in-person, physical format where players can buy booster packs of cards set to a particular theme. These packs have 20 different cards in them, that are (apparently) semi-random. Then, you choose a second theme, shuffle them together, and you have a surprisingly versatile and useful...

S5E32 - Fall Guys & Marvel Avengers - “We all fall down”

8/13/2020
In This Episode: This week we talk about the recent release of Fall Guys and our experiences with the Marvel’s Avengers beta. Fall Guys is the newest trend in battle royale gaming, only this time it's not a shooter. It's a floppy platformer! It's taken the world by storm, and the servers for this indie blockbuster were down for most of the weekend while they adjusted for the absurd demand for their title. It's free on PS+ for August 2020, so make sure you grab it if you're a member. The...

S5E31 - Recent Audiobook Recommendations and Reading Habits - "I’ll read this book on paper"

8/6/2020
Reader and Patreon-supporter Colton Bliss won the poll to have his topic suggestion go live! So here we are! Colton suggested audiobook recommendations and reading geekery! This week we dive deep into our current approaches to reading in all forms. We consume books in digital, physical, and audio formats these days so we wanted to really dig in on this topic. We talk about some of the best audiobooks we've read (listened to) recently, what made Beej pick up a physical copy of Snow Crash,...
