If you love games and great conversation with people who know what they’re talking about then this is definitely for you. I’m not a gamer so listen to Miztres who is:
The Podcast was pretty techie as you know, really above my level, but they kept the conversation to my level so I could follow along well enough. For example the talk about a rumoured massively big Xbox360. As soon as I heard that I went “Why? What for?” Well they told me what for….not that it’s really useful for most of us and certainly not useful for me. I can now speak confidently that I do not need to upgrade to the new Xbox if it ever turns up.
I liked the conversational style, I felt I was also in the room with them…just not contributing to the conversation.
The segments are cute. Did you hear the one about screen names: Metal Finger! Tumourous Pizza? I was laughing as I listened to the podcast and then had to explain myself to Catherine who couldn’t hear it.
I love Good Game on ABC and don’t miss an episode. When the podcast reviewed games I’d seen on Good Game I could follow their review. Their review brought out different aspects of the game that the Good Game guys hadn’t mentioned for whatever reason. Pretty cool.
I will be listening in the future.
Now, if you love Star Trek, you love humour and you are a bit of a geek (hey dude, you just admitted to being a Star Trek fan), then you should listen to Wil Wheaton’s Memories of the Future Podcast.
I first started reading Wil’s blog after I thought I caught a glimpse of him in Nemesis (Don’t get me started on that film). Wondering what Wesley Crusher was doing at the wedding party and in Starfleet uniform, I immediately hit the net. I found that Wil Wheaton had his own blog. I figured it sure to have something about the film in it. I thought it would be just another celebrity blog that the actual celebrity has nothing to do with, but it was worth a shot. It turns out that he writes it himself. He turns out to be a really cool guy (for a geek). I had no illusions he’d be like Wesley Crusher (in fact I never really gave Wesley much thought, not even enough to hate or like the character), but I didn’t expect him to sound just like any one of my friends.
Memories of the future is a book he is about to put out about The Next Generation. He says it’s not a tell all book. It’s more like going through a high school year book. But if you listen to the first episode, he’ll describe it much better than I can. Go on, go listen. Go! Trust me, I’m a geek.
Here’s a link to the first three episodes (because that’s all there is at the time of writing) after that you’re on your own.
Oh, and just by the way. I was walking through the park on my way to work (by myself) listening to episode 3. He made me laugh out loud! So not only was I the crazy laughing lady in the park, but snot came out of my nose!
