Yes it's my real name, and no I haven't read that strange comic from a couple of podcasts ago :-) I'm from London I'm 34 and work in TV. I've loved games and comics for as long as I can remember. Love the podcast, keep up the good work.


Do you by any chance work on the show Doctor Who?


Afraid not, though I have made adverts for it, I'm a promo producer

Hi.

Name's Chris. 27 years old.

I've been listening to The Geekbox since the begining, and never really bothered with the forums, since I'm an active member of 3 others, modding one of them.

I own virtually every system released since 1985, still missing a SEGA Genesis 3. Recently found a Virtual Boy and 7 games. $7, so I said what the hell.

I don't use Xbox Live, so no gamertag.
My PSN is chrisproto.
I could care less about my friendcodes for Wii. Worst online set-up ever.

My 360 is mainly used for exclusives, as I rally can't stand the controller for any significant length of time. The area between my index finger and thumb cramps up.

Mainly a PS3 gamer, which I know isn't a very popular choice.
PSN: chrisproto
Growing old is mandatory; Growing up is optional.

Hi, I'm a 22 y.o. guy. From the US, now living in Sweden, student at the University of Stockholm (advertising and PR), and also the video-games editor for Vice magazine (scandinavia). I'm kind of new to the whole game-reviewing business, so it is really nice to hear people that do it (very) professionally talk about it. It gives me a little insight to the subject and what not. Problem is that since our magazine comes out like once a month, and deadlines are usually a month prior, our reviews are always pretty late, so it's hard trying to tailor the reviews because all the hardcore gamers have already read about the game so you have to get in to it at a different angle. Bleh.

Anyways, the podcast is super fun, I've been listening since maybe.. .october 2009?. I don't really watch tv though, so I dont get the lost-talk but it is still kinda funny. Anyways. I'm a ps3 dude like the man above me, (gamertag is darkest_wizard). I have and xbox but I also only really play it for exclusives. Hah.

Last movie night I had we went old school with the candies and got a bunch of Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish, and Jordan Almonds.

By old school I mean candies we loved when we were little kids but stopped eating.

Oh man, you know what I used to love? Those butter taffies you'd get at Halloween, wrapped in orange and black! My brother used to hate them though, so every year I'd get a double stash! Yum! I don't spend enough time at the candy isle when I go shopping. Every now and then I'll swing by and see if there's anything on sale, but I'm usually too broke for luxuries.

Hit up the day after sales, especially the day after Halloween. Assorted snack size selections priced at 50-75% off.

From a quick GIS, I don't think so. I'm talking about these:

I had my fill of weird unmarked candy from my grandparent's house. I don't know what it is with them and hard candy but they were always fully stocked.

Okay, here's the deal with swedish fish candy in Sweden. There are no regular red swedish fish candy. BUT there are candies really similar to swedish fish in a mixed gummy-candy bag called "Gott & Blandat" (Tasty Mix). The thing is though, the fish are usually salt-licorice. There are also like.. orange and green fish in the tasty mix, but no red ones.

You can also buy fish-shaped gummy-candy in bulk. Buying candy in bulk is really popular in sweden. Each saturday kids usually go to the store to get there "Lördags Godis" (saturday candy) and make themselves a mixed bag of cool candies like: red/black Skulls, sour blueberries, chalk peices, racecars, sugarcubes, mini-snicker, candy rope, and more stuff! It's cool!

But for my cravings of us style swedish fish, I end up going to this cool food store either "The british store" that has a ton of USA food, or another grocery store that has american food. and oh

What's the deal with these .. Reses type oreo cookies? They come in a four pack, and they are really really tasty but in sweden its like... five dollars for FOUR COOKIES!

Hello everyone,

Names Oakstout. I live in the desert state of NC. Avid gamer, sometimes blogger and WoW player. Been listening to Geekbox for a while and before that Legendary Thread and GFW podcasts were staples of my daily drive to work. Geekbox is one of my top 3 weekly podcast with the other 2 podcasts "How to avoid Zombies" and "Is this a mole or a zit?" only slightly beating you out.

Great show!

Hello.

I live in London but will be moving to Australia soon.
Listen to the Geekbox when I'm on the treadmill and I have noticed a direct positive correlation with the speed of my running and the length of time Lost is talked about.

Anyway - howdy.

Welcome. We have a couple of Aussies here so you will feel comfortable when you get there.

Also, no matter how fast you run you can't outrun their Lost talk. Especially on a treadmill.
