The podcast welcomes back Chase Hartsook (Ep. #35 The Glory of Video Game Collecting)! For part 1 of our series on Super Mario Brothers, David and Chase do a deep dive into the origins and evolution of all the 2D Mario platformers, leading all the way up to Super Mario 64. Part 2, which will contain all of the 3D games, will be released after the new year!
Long-time video game collector and enthusiast Chase Hartsook joins us today to discuss the fantastical world of collecting video games. Chase gives us an in-depth look at what it takes to be a successful collector, and offers several extremely helpful tips to anyone that’s looking to either get into video game collecting, or wants to up their “game” with their current collection.
For part 2 of #RoadToMTAC2019, Connor Miller and Kirk Griffin join the podcast to discuss digital gaming. First, we talk about how digital gaming is so deeply embedded into the Con scene, especially MTAC. Then, we do something a little new to the show: We take turns pulling topics out of a hat. Some of those topics include our favorite console/PC games of 2018 and the future of gaming (i.e. VR/AR).
Happy Monday, my fellow Geeks! We need your help with part 2 of our “Road To MTAC 2019” series (digital gaming). This is an opportunity for you all to participate in a poll, to decide what our angle will be for the Digital Gaming episode.
E3 2017 was a few weeks ago, so we apologize that our review of it is coming to you guys this late in the game (no pun intended). However, we firmly believe that it’s better late than never to deliver the episode to you!
Andrew and Connor are both back for this episode, and we took the time to discuss some of the highlights from this year’s E3 conference, including a few new IPs, reboots and sequels, and what we think might be some of the fan-favorites we have to look forward to!
In today’s episode, Andrew, Connor, and David each discuss two of their favorite video games. This episode is a little less structured than our previous ones, so just a fair warning that we go off topic just a few times.
In our Nerdy News Update, Andrew gives us new info on the Star Wars franchise, Connor rants about the Dragon Ball Z series, and David gets excited for Thor Ragnarok news.
A few weeks ago, Nintendo had their big unveiling of their new console called the Switch. Although it seems pretty neat on surface level, once we looked a bit closer, we noticed a few things that could present some issues with the new gaming system. In today’s episode, we decided to chat about the Switch, and speculate whether the interesting new features could in fact be game-changing, or just a ploy for Nintendo to bait and “Switch” you once more.
