Geekery in General 229: Nintendo Player’s Guide

March 19, 2019 @ 1:54 am

Remember when the 8-bit NES was king? And if you knew all the secrets and tricks you were the coolest kid on the schoolyard? Al remembers those days. Well, he doesn't ever remember being the coolest kid on the schoolyard but he does remember when knowing a cheat code or how to beat that annoying boss on level 5 could win you a few friends. In this episode Al reviews the Nintendo Player's Guide, a big black book with all sorts of useful information.

NOTE: This episode was completely off the cuff and unplanned. I mention the book being a pack in with some of the Nintendo sets. I might be wrong on that.

Musically Challenged - Episode 50 - Chez Geeky

January 11, 2018 @ 6:00 am

LIVE FROM EVERCON 2018!!

Perhaps a word of warning, normally we try to get you the cleanest, best sounding episode we can. This episode is lightly edited because it was recorded live on January 7th at Evercon Gaming Convention in Wausau, WI. 

The boys had a blast with their first time in front of a live audience! And by audience I mean we had 2 people in the audience and one of them was Chad's wife. That said, I think this may have been one of the funnest episodes the boys have ever done.

They talk gaming, music, video games, TV shows and so much more. you need to come check it out!

"Scott is our Wallowitz!" Lou Schwalbach
