The Geekbox: Episode 49

The Geekbox

This week’s Geekbox gets to the meat right off the bat, pumping up the games conversation more than usual.  Higgins hunted down a nearby Del Taco for a Star Trek Online shuttle craft code and also threw $240 at a lifetime subscription, so you’re sure to hear more about the game in the coming weeks.  Karen got a chance to check out the game, expressing a little bit of frustration with the space combat, which could be attributed to her inability to drive.

Karen has also been “playing” Wii Sports Active, which scratches her itch to use an exercise program that goes beyond Wii Fit’s yoga-focused regimen.  Fitch encountered some internet problems, so he ran out to buy Dragon Age: Origins.  He’s been playing the game as an “evil” character, making the argument that games should be a place to act out in ways you can’t in real life.

Ryan continues the conversation about Tatsunoko vs Capcom from this week’s Gamespy Debriefings, talking a little bit about the different characters and what exactly “Tatsunoko” is.  Fitch teases his Gamespy review of Bayonetta and a brief mention of the Burn Notice premiere closes out the podcast.

Wherein we discuss late-night dumbness, moneyhatting, the depths of MMO obsession, EA Sports Active, why Dragon Age is “a bunch of Lord of the Rings crap,” developing relationships 101 (AKA the most awkward conversation ever), clones vs. clothes, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and the countdown to Burn Notice’s return. Starring Ryan Scott, Karen Chu, Andrew Fitch, Ryan Higgins, and Brock Sager.
