Greetings, Programs!

Over the weekend, the Mrs. and I went to see Ready Player One!

I am planning on doing a more in-depth review of it later on (after I re-read the book) but, I will give a brief review here…

It was OK.

It was maybe 4% of the book with about 2% of the pop culture references that are in the book, and they didn’t explain why the movie title was Ready Player One like they did in the book.

But, it was a fun adventure, and if you never read the book (for shame!) you will still be able to enjoy the film, maybe even more so than those of us who have read it.

Holy frak… I’m now in the same boat as the LOTR fans…

Anyway, enjoy this Side Quest podcast, and let us know what you thought of the movie!

On this episode, Boss Monkey Troy and Mrs. Uncommon Geek play the party game “Geek Out!”

It’s kind of like a trivia game that promotes showing off how much you know about geek culture and other things related to the nerd-o-sphere!

We explain the rules, how to play, and we play a full game! We’re not going to tell you who won… you’ll just have to listen and see!

It’s for 2 to infinity players!

We highly recommend you go to your local game store to pick it up, but, if you don’t have a local game shop, you can get it on Amazon at the following link… http://www.amazon.com/Playroom-Entertainment-PLE66200-Geek-Out/dp/B00DV8E9EG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456973448&sr=8-1&keywords=geek+out

Listen below and enjoy!

Tonight concludes our Back to the Future geekout.

It was an awesome day! Getting a chance to be part of one of our favorite geek movies, and it was a celebration that will happen only once in our lives!

The recording session will probably be one of my all time favorites! It was fun and with awesome people, and thank you for being a part of it, dear listener!

Video games are awesome! And when we get a chance to talk with people who make games, we get to learn more about what we enjoy! Which is always a good thing.

This week, we sit down with Rob Buchheit of Nectar Game Studios to talk about a game they are working on called “Project Resurgence.” It’s like Balders Gate and Diablo with elements of tabletop RPG mixed in!

Rob lays it all out on the table and talks about what goes into making a game and talks about his history with video games and the inspiration behind Project Resurgence! We also geek out a lot and get off topic, just like always 🙂

Check out Nectar Game Studios at http://www.nectargamestudios.com/

Be sure to follow Project Resurgence on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/

And if you live in the Twitterverse, be sure to follow them at @NectarGS

Also be sure to keep a look out for their Kickstarter!

Is it an interview, or is it a geek out?

Yes!

Boss Monkey sits down with the amazing Amanda Gilliam from the podcast “Amanda Gilliam Presents” to talk about pretty much everything! Her apartment is decorated with collectibles galore, some of which Troy remembers playing with from his childhood!

In this part one of a two part interview, Troy and Amanda reminisce about the days of yesteryear, going to conventions, and even plea to the Mouse (Disney) to not ruin Episode VII!
