Geekdom United Podcast Episode 21 - The one about Shin Godzilla, Shenmue III and Dragon Ball Z

Welcome to episode 21 of the Geekdom United podcast! On this week’s episode, Tim reviews the recently released Shin Godzilla film on Blu-Ray and gives us a history lesson on Haruo Nakajima, the original actor in the Godzilla rubber suit who took up the role for 12 consecutive films who sadly passed away recently.

 

We also discuss Mark’s recent obsession with Dragon Ball Z and his quest to watch all 291 episodes (and movies, if possible) before the upcoming game ‘Dragon Ball FigtherZ’ releases in February 2018. To wrap things up, we take a look at the fresh off the presses trailer for Shenmue III and provide our thoughts and hopes for improvements based on what we saw. We hope you tune in and enjoy!

+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 12 – The One About Exploding Kittens, Warhammer & Centurions!

After some extremely frustrating technical difficulties, we are finally back with episode twelve of the +3 To Geekdom Podcast. Thank you for your patience!

On this month’s episode, take a look at one of the funniest and anxiety producing cards that we have played so far in our Geekdom travels titled Exploding Kittens. If you mix one part Uno with one part Russian Roulette, then you have a fair idea of what you’re in for! Next up, Tim details his wallet destroying venture into the world of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40K. Finally, we wrap things up with a trip down memory lane as we check out one of our favourite 80’s cartoons: Centurions – Power Xtreme!

+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 7 - The One About Imperial Assault, X-Wing Miniatures & ‘Nerd’ Bullying

Ladies & Gentlemen, it's time for episode seven of the +3 To Geekdom podcast! On this month's episode, we have a quick chat about our time at PAX Australia (and it's amazing table top area) that took place last month here in Melbourne, Australia. This also happens to be a great segue to our table top game of the month: Imperial Assault by Fantasy Flight games! We discuss our first time playing the game and Tim goes over the in's & out's of the campaign and skirmish modes!

Things get a tad more serious with our next main topic for the month: "Nerd" or "Geek" bullying. Have you been on the receiving end? Judged for playing D&D or Magic: The Gathering? Been given crap for your cosplay or other interests? We share our thoughts on the matter with the aim of bringing one point across: Let people enjoy what they want to enjoy and don't be a dick about it!

All this and more, so be sure to tune in and have a listen!

+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 6 - The One About New York Comic Con & Krosmaster Arena

Another month which means another episode of the +3 To Geekdom podcast! On this episode, we debut a new segment (and one that we'll actually follow up on!): What have we been drinking, eating and listening to? Yep...the hard hitting questions! Mark also stumbles his way through the New York Comic Con comic announcements and the guys get sidetracked and talk about the RetroVGS gaming console. For our tabletop game of the month and after many months of eluding to it, we finally try out Krosmaster Arena for the first time and give our impressions about how not to play the game!

We also have usual Street Fighter V wrap up (now titled Scrub Talk!), our Q&A session and Tim reveals how he managed to score a crapload of Power Rangers gear. Winning!
