Two Geeks and a Podcast #Twelve – Be A Superhero

Greetings glorious geeks!

This week’s podcast is a big one, clocking in well over our normal 30 min goal, but our talk today could not be constrained or rushed into half an hour.  Last week while at Gateway 2015 we were faced with sexism in a very direct way and we want to talk about it with our audience.  We won’t let bigotry go unnoticed and leave victims feeling alone.  We want to see our beautiful and amazing geek community unite and banish this kind of ignorance from the world.  By telling our story on this podcast we hope to educate and inspire others to stand side by side with their fellow human beings and defend each other from hatred.  Buckle up, this one’s gonna get heavy.

Two Geeks and a Podcast #Eleven – The Magical Kingdom

We’re a little late, BUT WE’RE BACK!

After a turbulent month these Two Geeks are back in action recounting their tales of a Magical Kingdom where they Toured the Stars, met amazing talking animals, and celebrated their birthdays! It wasn’t all mouse ears and rainbows though as a couple dark clouds loomed over head… we’re fine though.

This week we also get into the element of competition at the game table and life to see if it’s a good thing to have or not and how it doesn’t matter what game you play, it’s always more fun with other people.

The Final Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Trailer Revealed

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain marks the last time we’ll ever see a Metal Gear Solid game helmed by series creator Hideo Kojima.  Despite the now legendary falling out between Kojima and Konami, Kojima was at least allowed to make the final trailers himself. As such, the final trailer for The Phantom Pain is no exception to Kojima’s genius. It is a masterful piece of work that traverses the main line of Metal Gear Solid games (so essentially every game that is considered canon) which not only shows Big Boss’s progression from hero to villain, but even touches on the fate that Solid Snake narrowly avoided. But, in any case, I’ve rambled on far too long about the trailer, hit the jump to see it for yourself! Read On

Review: PS3 – J-Stars Victory Vs

Review: PS3 – J-Stars Victory Vs

Back in the day before the wide spread access to Anime, there were very few places to get your fix – let alone very few series you could watch. Let’s break it down: Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z and Ghost in the Shell.  Now I had somehow gained access to the Dark Horse version of the Ghost in the Shell Manga, and desperately wanted to watch the movie. So desperate in fact, that I somehow convinced my mother into picking me up the movie. She had now idea what she was buying and even was more shocked when we sat down as a family to watch the movie. To her credit she watched it, I think she liked more then Akira

Fast forward a couple of years and Anime has taken off. Might have been the whole Yu Gi Oh phenomenon but during this time there was a magazine debuting in the states for the first time called Shonen Jump. Now at this point in my Otaku-ism I had already ventured to the Japanese Marketplace and had picked up the Japanese version of Shonen Jump on more then one occasion. Even going so far as to pick up Jump Superstars Video game on the Nintendo DS. It was an instant hit for me – but I wanted more… To be a tad specific I wanted a little more variety.

Enter the world of J-Stars Victory Vs which sold me with two characters: Kenshiro (Fist of the North Star) and Jonathan Joestar (Joe Joe’s Bizarre Adventure). What promised to be a smorgashbord of Anime characters mixed with a brawling style fight engine. Was this the ultimate Anime cross over?
