It’s not what you think.

A few months ago, I got a real nasty computer virus. My PC started acting all sorts of strange after I used a built-in updater on a program. My anti-virus flagged a component in the update as a virus, and after that, it was all down hill. (more…)

At conventions, you meet a lot of people when you have a booth. Some of them take a business card, and some are interested in what you do and have to say. Few of them talk to you more than 5 minutes or so…

And once in a great while, we get them on the podcast!

And then there is the Not-So Silent shyguy!

Shyguy (as he has requested to be called) intrigued me so much, that I had to interview him for the show! He has a plan of doing a YouTube series where he reviews comic books, but with a twist! He will review titles that sound interesting but fal flat, and titles that sound boring but are actually very good, but, dressed as a shyguy!

And, he might even join our site as a video comic reviewer!

We talk about comics, video games and a lot of other stuff! He is a pretty cool guy! A cool shyguy if you will!

Listen below and enjoy!

As you all know, I love video games. I’ve been Playing video games for practically all my life.

Earlier this year after I started playing Elite: Dangerous, Mrs. Uncommon Geek pointed out that I was spending more time playing that game than doing much else. I do tend to throw myself into a new game.

And that got me thinking… What would happen if I didn’t play any games for a month?

So, I decided to do it. I wouldn’t play ANY video games at all during the month of May! (more…)

Mr. and Mrs. Uncommon geek square off against each other in 4 rounds of Superfight!

A game that came in February’s LootCrate (which was themed “Play!”) Superfight is a hilarious card game where players create fighters and argue why their fighter would win against another players fighter!

White cards have characters on them, and black cards are attributes that you give to each character! You create the best combination and create your “fighter” and, well, fight!

If you take the game out of this episode, it’s basically listening in on any typical day in The Uncommon geek household.

Be on the edge of your seat as you hear Godzilla, armed with a two-ton tuna and an army of disposable minions fight an ocelot armed with a machete and a Gatling gun! And other epic fights that are guaranteed to make you laugh!

Video games.

Chances are, most everyone in America has played at least one game in their life, be it console, arcade, or, in most recent times, on a mobile device.

But, some people have a tendency to play more than others. Some say, “oh, they just enjoy playing for an hour or so after work. No big deal.” While others say, “you know, they might be addicted to video games.”

Video game addiction?

Is that even be a real thing?

The answer is clearly a big maybe.
