Two Geeks and a Podcast #Thirteen – The Next Dimension

We’re back after being entrapped in the inescapable room, well maybe we’re exaggerating a little, but we did make it through our first Escape Room!  With time to spare (so it got snuck into this podcast) Ashley and Anthony went to Escapism Puzzle Room and lived to tell the spoiler-free tale.

You can’t fill up a podcast just talking vaguely about an awesome adventure though, so this week Two Geeks gives you their review of LEGO Dimensions!  Listen in as Ashley gushes and Anthony translates that into constructive criticism of the newest entry to the Mini-Fig gaming genre.

Warning, bricks will be busted…

“When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The LEGO Movie are swept away. To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex and quickly find themselves fighting to save all of LEGO humanity.”

For the first time ever LEGO worlds have collided and there are no rules!

Catching up with Tony Hawk at LEGOLAND

While waiting for the ribbon cutting ceremony to start over at LEGOLAND’s new Star Wars miniland area, we caught up with a few celebrities.  One of which was San Diego’s own skateboarding legend, Tony Hawk.  I asked him the basic Star Wars questions, but also wondered if he is still making video games despite the fact that sales for his last two games, RIDE and SHRED, haven’t done so well.
