Geekmates Geek Dates: A Gaming Night In

29 Jul

Tony and I are pretty casual people. When we want to spend time together or have a date, we usually default to catching up on our favourite shows, renting a movie or playing some games with delicious take out. Not that Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead are over, however, and Breaking Bad has yet to start, we have been spending some hangout time with controllers and sushi or pizza. Delicious!

Most games, unfortunately, are not geared towards a split screen co-op experience – not to say that they don’t have them, but they just aren’t that great. It has been a little bit of trial and error for us.

OMG WE ARE HAVING SUPER SO MUCH FUN!!

The PVP Podcast Episode 15 – Pacific Rim Job

22 Jul

So I realized I forgot to post about Episode 14 a fortnight ago – whoops! Although let’s be honest, you’ve probably already subscribed to us on iTunes or Twitcher and had it downloaded instantly to your handy dandy music devices.

What smart listeners we have!

This week we recorded a week early, as Dave was going on an epic adventure to the north to fight polar bears and uncover lost tombs of treasure. We talk about The Last of Us, Star Trek, Pacific Rim, how upset Sarah was about Lootcrate, and then discuss morales in video games – thanks to @_cordova for the suggestion on Twitter!

Reading On The Bounty

5 Jul

I recently started working at an EB Games here in the city, and I have got to tell you, I am having tons of fun. It’s been a while since I’ve done anything customer service related, and I really missed talking and interacting with people all day – talking about gaming all day is a definite bonus!

Working at EB also means new friendships, and I have found that some of the staff have some hidden talents – and I want to introduce you to someone who not only is pretty talented at writing, but also changed my opinion of Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull – and that is no small task. Meet Andrew!
