Welcome to the Utterly G33k Social Hour episode for the month of June 2018! In this episode we find out in real time what house Daron belongs to for Harry Potter! We also dig into what makes Mad Max a pretty good game and why that makes us interested in Rage 2. We also look into A Way Out, Westworld, spend quite a bit of time discussing God of War and also becoming human in Detroit.
I’m going to skip all of the small stuff and jump right into my favorites of the year. Albums, films, and games (everything that I’ve enjoyed in 2015). For in depth lists of gaming please check out the podcast. I had a super fun time talking shit with a couple of my best buds and I hope all of you have just as good a time listening. Well, anyways, I digress. Without any further ado here are my favorites of 2015.
#5 Chelsea Wolfe: Abyss
Gorgeously dark and twisted. Her voice just swirls.
#4 The World Is A Beautiful Place… Harmlessness
Angsty and pretty emo that’s damn gripping.
#3 Sufjan Stevens: Carrie & Lowell
Simplicity at its finest.
#2 Intronaut: The Direction Of Last Thing
Progressive metal that doesn’t feel bland. That’s crazy hard to pull off.
#1 We Lost The Sea: Departure Songs
Even without vocals Departure Songs can bring out every human emotion. Breathtaking!
Denis Villeneuve continues to make intense and wonderful films. A director at the top of his game.
#4 It Follows
Definitely wasn’t expecting a teen horror flick about getting STDs to be so effing great.
#3 The Martian
A witty script and great direction make for a wonderful film.
#2 Ex Machina
Yes, it has its flaws and it may be a teensy bit predictable, but damn what a beautiful film with a wonderful take on AI.
#1 Mad Max: Fury Road
One of the best action films of all time… Period.
Insanely gorgeous and dark landscape with horrifyingly insane creatures. Hard as F&%K though.
#4 Pillars Of Eternity
I need to play more of this fantastic dungeon crawler.
Sweet soundtrack and an even sweeter indie rpg akin to 90s favorites.
#2 Ori And The Blind Forest
Just finished this beauty and love it so much. Great landscapes and great flow.
#1 The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt
The Witcher 3 has it all. Need I say more?
Another week, another episode! This week we discuss old school RPGs, Mario Maker and why you should NEVER MAKE AN AUTO SCROLLING LEVEL EVER, as well as get into it with Mad Max and all the current week’s news! Please sit back and enjoy!
Come one come all, a new episode is upon us! In this week’s episode, Daron and Wally can’t let Metal Gear go (seriously, we talk about it a ton more, we can’t stop talking about it… sorry. Spoiler free as always). Halo matchmaking has been changed in Guardians, Witcher gets a new expansion, Battlestar Galactica is discussed, Nintendo has a new president and do you know how many songs were not yet in Rock Band? I didn’t, turns out, a ton.
In this wonderous episode Steve and Daron sit down to discuss Witcher 3, Splatoon, more Mad Max, Fallout 4, and pre-ordering games, when you should and shouldn’t do it, spoiler, you shouldn’t probably.
Holy Hell guys! It’s been what, like a year? Two? Who knows, but we’re finally here again. Wally, Daron, and the newly minted Steve sit down to discuss all things geeky. We meander this week through Bloodborne, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Heart of the Swarm, and Mad Max. We also are counting the days to E3 and the inevitable announcement of Fallout 4. So sit back and relax while we serenade you with our stupid.
