The Geekbox: Episode 28

by Jonathan Downin in Games, Misc, MoviesAugust 20th, 2009 @ 8:57 am

The GeekboxJade Kraus and Justin Haywald of 1UP are on this week in place of Mike Cruz and Karen Chu.  Jade and Justin had a chance to interview Yoshitaka Amano, of Final Fantasy fame, last weekend and are sharing their experience which leads into discussion about cosplay.  With a podcast called The Geekbox, it is not surprising that some of the crew have a bit of personal experience with cosplay.

With the closing of GRIN game studios the group is talking about some comments from a developer, Eric Kozlowsky, about game critics and how they are not servicing their audience well.  The criticisms all center around professionalism which the crew takes umbridge with.  The conversation then moves onto movies starting with District 9, Ponyo and then a whole discussion on Quentin Tarantino and the forthcoming Inglourious Basterds.  Ryan Scott is a big fan of Brad Pitt’s accent in the trailer and how could you not be?

Wrapping up after a short discussion about Game Center CX, Andrew talks about the type of submissions that he would like to see for the “Win a Date with Fitch” campaign.  Even if only for the podcast, let’s hope some decent submissions come in.

Wherein we discuss Yoshitaka Amano, cosplay, Champions Online, stupid game critics, District 9, Ponyo, Quentin Tarantino and the Inglourious Plummers, Game Center CX, and the impending BlizzCon 2009. Starring Ryan Scott, Andrew Fitch, Justin Haywald, Ryan Higgins, and Jade Kraus.
