Geek in the City Radio Issue 143

There are good issues, “eh” issues, and damn fine issues. Number 143 is one of those Damn Fine Issues. After Kielen schools Aaron for still not playing more than 15 minutes of Modern Warfare 3, Dan delves deep into Diablo 3 as Scott and Aaron ask why the game has such a following. Then, Scott and Kielen regret asking Aaron just what the changes in D&D 5th Edition will mean to gamer and noobs. Also, Scott feels lamentations and hope over his Portland Trailblazers (yes, they’re Scott’s). Next, a heartfelt and sincere look back and thanks to Rick Emerson as he winds down to his final broadcast. Finally, a special installment of Fun With Race inspired by George Lucas, Red Tails, and ignorant jack-asses. Like I said, good show this week.

Don’t forget – Saturday February 4 – The Jupiter Hotel proudly presents the Geek in the City Radio Telethon of Pain – 8pm to 8am – Live!

Geek in the City Radio Issue 100

That’s right fair listeners, Issue 100 of GeekintheCity Radio! Everything you’ve come to expect and/or dread is in this horribly Non Politically Correct issue. Joined by Kielen King, Bobby Roberts, and Kaebel Hashitani; Aaron, Scott, and Dan reflect on the past 100 issues… And a few before. But not just rambling this issue. Scott sits down with filmmaker Tom Shadyacto talk about his new documentary I Am, while Dan has a chat with Grant Knutson, the mad genius behind the Portland Mini Fringe Film Festival. Plus, listen for your chance at winning weekend passes to the Fringe Film Festival, as well as passes to the Portland International Film Festival and their newest feature PIFF After Midnight. All that, plus Pulling From Aaron’s Box and a new segment from the soon to hit Stumptown – Kielen King! Whew, 100 episodes. We’re sorry, and thank you!

Adult Game Night Strikes Back!

Greetings Programs! After a many-month sabbatical, the much loved Adult Game Night returns at Guardian Games. Did you miss the beer? The pizza? The games? Avoiding mass ownage from 12 year-olds?! We did too! Adult Game Night is back at 303 SE 3rd Ave., from 6pm to 10pm.

What do you need? Just $10 and a valid ID proving you’ve spent at least 21 years on this world.

Open gaming. Good friends. Good libations.

It all starts Thursday, January 20, at Guardian Games at 6pm.

And as always, may all your rolls be natural 20s. (Um, unless you play GURPS, in which I could care less).

Sometimes, Zed is Better…

It will take a serious bit of willpower to not call in sick Tuesday… Just so I can plant my butt in front of the Xbox 360 and blaze through this little gem:

To my knowledge, The Sacrifice is one of the first DLCs usable on either version of a video game. That’s right, only own Left 4 Dead or Left 4 Dead 2? No worries, The Sacrifice will play on either. ‘Course, if you don’t own both, there is a good chance you aren’t all that excited to begin with. What to do while you wait for Tuesday? Pop on over to Valve and check out the gorgeous The Sacrifice comic from Michael Oeming.

Then, just a few weeks later. The whole reason I’ve hung onto Red Dead Redemption hits the DLC. (Don’t get me wrong, the game has a grip of replay value with all the online options. I’m just not a big online gamer). Unless, of course, I’m hunting the Gawd Damn Undead! Undead Nightmare hits the dirty west and I can’t wait to skin ma’ smokewagon and put some friggen zombies back into the dirt:

Look for a review from both as they break. Until next time. Aim for the head!480_zenegeek

Geek in the City Radio Issue 67

Okay, no such thing as a “D3”, but I wanted it to blend. (Well, there is a “D3” but, that’s a whole other show). Anyway, on this week’s issue, Aaron and Scott talk about the NBA Finals, how Aaron knew it would go to game 7 and other random sports info. Then, Mailman Chris makes his return to GeekintheCity Radio with some exciting coverage of E3. Finally, Darkwing Duck makes his triumphant return in Pulling From Aaron’s Box and Scott talks about the genius of Toy Story 3. Oh, and Directors Cuts of Commentaries. Really. (Also, ignore any “Issue 68” comments, we can haz countin’ skilz).
