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

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 next week.  He also sampled the Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity demo and found it kind of wanting.

Geek to Geek S5E44 - Watch Dogs: Legion - “Super Spy Old Grandma”

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 revisiting the world of Frozen with Into the Unknown: Making Frozen II and by watching the new Olaf short, Once Upon a Snowman.  Void also finished up the latest two Dresden Files novels and enjoyed them a lot.

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

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 D&D and has plans for campaigns and one-shots with friends.  BJ finished up Sabrina and loved the dark Halloweeny-ness of it.  Void tried out the Dungeons & Dragons board game with his kids, has Genshin Impact on farm mode, and has finished the first battle pass of his life due to the Marvel season of Fortnite Chapter 2.

Weekly Geekery

For geekery, BJ is back to playing World of Warcraft but he’s also been exploring The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in time for Halloween and finished The Boys Season 2.  Void was mostly playing Genshin Impact but also has found some time to finally beat a run in Hades and he also read the 99% Invisible City book!

Geek to Geek S5E41 - Star Wars Squadrons - “Power to shields”

In This Episode:

This week Void covers Star Wars Squadrons while BJ is out for the week.  It’s interesting to see how a new Star Wars game holds up in 2020 from EA. He also touches on Genshin impact but that’s a bigger story for next week once everyone is back.

Weekly Geekery

For geekery, Void has completed more of his revisit of the Assassin’s Creed series and recaps a few more games while on the path toward the new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release later this year.

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

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 Wii U Deluxe version is getting some Switch play, and then there's the brand new Super Mario 3D All-Stars that just released that everyone is playing and loving. He's playing that, too! Whew! 

And Void is, too! He's focusing more on the Super Mario 3D All-Stars part of things, but really loves him some Super Mario Galaxy. Enough that he beat it on its own already. He wants Super Mario Galaxy 2 for Switch, and his thinking is that we're going to see it as DLC for the All-Stars collection. Wouldn't that awesome? What do you think?

The guys go into even more depth on all the games in the series, really talking a stroll down memory lane for each and every 3D Mario game (and then some!).

For Weekly Geekery this week, Beej has been playing with LEGO Super Mario thanks to Elinzia's review on GeekToGeekMedia.com, watching The Social Dilemma on Netflix and spawns a good tangent for you listeners. And Void has been watching the Mandalorian with his kids, so they're finally getting into Star Wars from some of the newest and strongest content imaginable. They get to experience it all for the first time, and we're so jealous! Void then goes on about Fortnite and how the new Marvel content is some of the best stuff the game has ever done. Hands down. Beej agrees. Of course, he hasn't played since Season 1, really, but he likes agreeing. So he did.
