    S5E26 - Gaming Shames - “It actually made me think for awhile”

    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 The RPG After Years podcast'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 just have to listen to see!
    Weekly Geekery Void is super happy with the war movie 1917 and discusses how well-made it is, and that it's a must-see for anyone who loves war movies. And he has some really fun geekery that has to do with some gaming shames, too. But why would we spoil that for you here? We want you to listen to the full episode? So press play, you heathen!
    Beej got some review copies of comics from TKO Studios, and he's mega impressed by them. They're released in bingeable formats, even as individual issues, and after reading the first issue of Jeff Lemire's Sentient, he just sat there and read all 6. This is exactly what review copies are for because after experiencing that first arc, he's 100% down to buy the rest of that series as it's released. You can check out the first issues of their stuff digitally here and get 20% off your order with code GEEK2GEEK20. We highly recommend it.
    They even sent me this cool graphic to use!

    All that said...we want to hear from you!
    What are some of the shames you feel around gaming? What are your biggest gaming shames? Let us know!

    S5E24 - Video Game Rip-Offs, Homages, and Evolution - “My reflexes aren’t what they used to be”

    S5E24 - Video Game Rip-Offs, Homages, and Evolution - “My reflexes aren’t what they used to be”

    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 new life with a different spin?
    We discuss other games like this, too, from Castlevania and Metroid, to Bloodstained, to Overwatch and even JRPGs that have taken their cues from Chrono Trigger over the years.
    Plus, there are games that have taken the base engine of a game like WarCraft 3, and then made a new game out of it...like DOTA did. We have Fortnite and PUBG that came from an ARMA mod, and even Counter-Strike itself was a Half-Life 2 mod. Where is the line in here that separates the original idea from the evolution?
    There's a lot to this topic, and we aren't 100% sure that we even named it right. But it's one of our favorite discussions we've had in a long time. So join us and let's talk about some games!
    Weekly Geekery We also have all sorts of things in weekly geekery like Dragon Quest IV, Hitman 2, Final Fantasy Lost Stranger, Archero, and some off the cuff PS5 reveal impressions.
    And here's the link to the Hitman NoClip documentary that Void talks about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_stW6JvB4SI

Two positive, zero-salt geeks

Geek To Geek Podcast is my #1 favorite podcast!
I’ve been listening to these guys for years. I’ve fallen off of other podcasts when hosts get to negative about their opinions. Geek to Geek always keeps it positive and both hosts keep it real and relatable.
The podcasts are always well edited and polished for smooth listening. Audio quality is great- both hosts (who record remotely) can be equally heard and they edit out all the unnecessary um/uhh’s.
Their discussions range from video games and books to fitness and movies. I initially listened in for video game discussion, but I honestly enjoy listening to them talk about anything.
