+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 8 - The Rascally One About Martial Arts Movies

Ladies & Gentlemen, we hope that you all had a great Christmas and an even happier New Year! We are back for our first episode of 2016 and it is a bumper episode! After months of teasing and for what has seemed like an eternity, we have finally managed to peg him down. That's right: the man, the myth, the legend that is Andsy of Rad Rascals fame has finally joined us on the +3 To Geekdom podcast!

For a change of pace this month, we put down the controllers and set aside dice and instead we put on our Gi's, tighten up our black belts (or white belt in Mark's case) and strap on our gloves as we chat about some of our favourite martial arts flicks and stars of all time. Andsy also fires off some rapid fire questions to keep us on our toes and we have our usual community Q&A to round things out. Who was the only one not to study martial arts growing up? Just how much does it cost to get started with Imperial Assault? And just what in the hell is "Showaddywaddy"?  Make sure you tune in and find out the answers to these questions and more!

Show Notes:

Not much to mention this month folks. However, if you wish to hear more of Andsy's dulcet tones, you can listen to him & Ben on the Rad Rascals podcast!

+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!

Ten of the biggest announcements to come out of New York Comic Con (which we probably didn't even cover!) - http://www.newsarama.com/26348-the-10-biggest-new-york-comic-con-2015-announcements.html

+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 5 - The One About Tokyo Game Show, Bloodborne & Vinyl!

What's this then? Episode 5 of the +3 To Geekdom podcast and it's on time (well...kinda). That's right folks, it's time again for your monthly dose of geekdom goodness!

We're joined for this months episode by our good friend Mr. Darren "Daz" Borg from Retro Domination as we sit down to talk about the happenings and announcements that recently took place during Tokyo Game Show 2015. Karin (of Street Fighter Alpha 3 fame) was announced as the latest character to join the Street Fighter V roster and we begin foam at the mouth at a pair of announcements courtesy of From Software: Dark Souls 3 will launching on March 24, 2016 AND Bloodborne will be getting a new DLC expansion titled 'The Old Hunters', releasing on November 24th, 2015. This leads us to our next topic of discussion: the love/hate relationship that the three of us have with Bloodborne.

This month also sees the debut of a new ongoing segment where we plan on showcasing one of our favourite table top or card games, with 'Geek Out!' courtesy of Playroom Entertainment being first up on the chopping block. Tim and Daz go head to head as they answer a series of pop culture related questions and try to psyche each other out!

To wrap things up, we delve into Tim's recent rekindling of his relationship with his beloved vinyl record collection, as we both reminisce about our awesome high school & metal head days! Of course we have another round of Q&A to close out the show. We hope you enjoy this episode and we'll see you next month!

+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 4 - Dungeons and Wrestling

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and children of all ages, we are back with episode 4 of the +3 To Geekdom podcast! And if you're not down with that, we've got two words for ya! Suck it!!

Ahem...anyway....to kick off this weeks episode, we talk about some good ol' fashion wrasslin' as Tim (who joined by Matt from Retro Domination) was lucky enough to attend a WWE show during their latest tour of Australia.  Of course, this has renewed his love affair with the squared circle along which has lead him to take up the WWE Network subscription service.

Following on from all of the wrestling talk, we also discuss our first experiences as we delve head first into the realm of Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition and all of the confusing, confusing awesomeness that came along with it.

If that isn't enough, Tim also gives us his initial impressions of 'Armada', the follow up to the universally loved 'Ready Player One' by Ernest Cline and he also provides us with a spoiler free preview of the audio book! All of this plus another round of Q&A from our awesome listeners, so we hope you'll tune in and enjoy!

+3 To Geekdom Podcast Episode 3 – That Comic Con Goodness!

It's better late than never, right? That's right folks, we are back for episode three of the +3 To Geekdom Podcast! After what seems like an eternity, we've managed to roll out of our sick beds to discuss what has been an absolutely hectic month of pop culture news and announcements!

To kick things off, we talk about our time spent at the recent Oz Comic Con event held here in Melbourne, Australia as well as our first foray into Wiz Kid's awesome Dice Masters game, with a demo (aka hand holding!) game from our good buddies over at Pro GamerS!

Whilst Oz Comic Con was a great and fun event to attend, it was naught but a blip on the radar compared to the juggernaut that was San Diego Comic Con! We run through some of our highlights from the absolute deluge of news to come out from the show. Finally, to round things off, we answer some of the burning (ok...probably more tepid than anything) questions given to us courtesy of our awesome community!
