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!

Geekdom United Podcast Ep 18 – The One About Wonder Boy, Baskin & The Stan Lee Story

We are back (and late once again) with episode 18 of the Geekdom United podcast…and as it turns out, we’re two years old this month! Hip, hip hooray and happy birthday to us!To celebrate this momentous occasion, we have…absolutely nothing in store. With that said, on this month’s show we have a quick chat about the absolutely amazing remake of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap by Lizard Cube (to be continued on the Retro Domination podcast, wink wink) and we have not one, but three DVD reviews to cover this month. Tim braves the Turkish horror film ‘Baskin’, Mark channels his inner weeaboo and fails miserably with his review of the mecha anime ‘Aquarion Logos’ but gets his comic book fanboy on with the review of the documentary ‘With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story’. All this and more, so we hope you tune in and enjoy!

 

We owe a huge thank you to our good friends at Madman Entertainment and Umbrella Entertainment for kindly providing us these DVD’s for review!

+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 11 - The One About Civil War, Overwatch and More!

After a bit of break to deal with that little thing called ‘real life’, we are back for episode 11 of the +3 To Geekdom podcast....and it’s a bit of a bumper episode!

To kick things off, we share our thoughts on Marvel Studios latest cinematic blockbuster in Captain America: Civil War and then head into our main topic for the month: family friendly board and table top games including the likes of Tsuro, King of Tokyo, Diamonsters, UNO (the destroyer of friendships) and more!

Following on from the board game talk, we move on to games of the video variety as we gush over Blizzard’s brand new IP, the team based first person shooter Overwatch! Not content with all of that, ‘Shithouse Theatre’ returns from its long hiatus as we discuss the Mary Harron directed cult movie classic “American Psycho”. Were we impressed by the silian rail font on Patrick Bateman’s bone coloured business card? To find out the answer to this burning question and our monthly Q&A, you’ll have to tune in to find out!

Show notes:
