In this, our very first episode:
Hi, geeks! We are Void and Beej, and this is our very first episode of The Geek to Geek Podcast! Thanks for tuning in, being awesome, and geeking out with us while we figure out exactly what it is we’re doing.
So since this is our very first episode, we thought that we would dive in and talk about the subjective value of video games and other media. We ask why some $60 games last for 4 hours and seem to be worth it, while others are just as fun, last for dozens of hours, but don’t really seem worth paying more than $10 for.
We touch on
Beej: 2 Player Productions’ Double Fine Adventure documentary series that follows the indie game Broken Age from launching the Kickstarter project to release. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVwg-9WL3dE
Void: The indie-gaming powerhouse duo of Stardew Valley (http://store.steampowered.com/app/413150/) and Firewatch (http://store.steampowered.com/app/383870/). If you want to just immerse yourself in a couple of the best gaming worlds to grace a screen in ages, you owe it to yourself to grab either (or both!) of these titles as soon as possible.
