If you ever doubted that women play video games, then this episode should provide all the evidence you need to dismiss your skepticism. I am fortunate to sit down with Sylvie and Stephanie, who regale me with tales of their youth with games and what they're playing now. That screen shot you're looking at is from Quest For Tires, a game that one of our ladies of gaming loved as a child. I have to admit, I spent a lot of time on a stone unicycle myself when I was knee high to a Mario Brother.
We talk fairly extensively about God of War 3, Guild Wars 2, the Assassin's Creed Series as well as the movie, MMO's, how women are portrayed in games, Diablo II and the upcoming update to Baldur's gate. We touch on a plethora of other games including World of Warcraft, Tera, Call of Ducy, Age of Conan, Diablo II and III, Dragon Age and Star Wars The Old Republic. The topic of bad video game movies comes up as well, but not for too long, since we mostly manage to stay on target! er, topic. I meant 'topic'.
The three of us also touch on what we're watching now, namingly Legend of the Seeker, Doctor Who, Weeds and Hell's Kitchen. I also spend a minute worshiping Kevin Nealon.
There's even more in this whopper of an episode, but I'll let you discover it for yourself. We were going to have a 'rename our podcast contest' but found a name right after we finished recording. In one more episode our name will officially change to "That Geek Podcast"
If you'd like to get in contact with the official Spinward Fringe Star Wars: The Old Republic Guild, you can find them by looking for Freeground Nation (Republic) or Regent Galactic (Empire) on the Canderous Ordo server.
This week we played 'Polly' covered artfully by Walk Off The Earth. Make sure you check their site for tour dates, and to find more music. You can find their tunes wherever great sounds are sold!
