The Geekbox: Episode 55

Postby Rydog » Mar 2nd, 2010 @ 6:33pm

This week's episode guest-stars 1UP's Alice Liang, who totally ruins the episode. Hey, just kidding.

Also: Check out this thread if you'd like to participate in Mr_eX and LiQuid's Xbox 360 Achievement contest during the month of March!

Fuck, your the only one on the Forums and you still can't get us right.

I'll listen later since I'm in the middle watching the JJ Abram Star Trek for the first time. Pretty bad ass so far.
I stream games some times. Come and watch www.twitch.tv/darfox8 These are my Highlights.

Hey that's not totally fair Ryan is on from time to time, although it's mainly to post a new podcast thread or probably a theory in the lost thread. (don't know never actually been in that thread) Karen will sporadically post unsually on this board in particular. I've seen Mike post like maybe 3 times. Although if you are talking about regular than ya Master Higgins is about the only one. Also is Fitch aware he even has an account on here?

On another related note I'm curious if this means Alice is going to be added to the list of VIP's in the user index.

I can tell Higgins' woman desperately wants to be on the podcast - she just needs a pretext. I think that's at least the 2nd time he's told that story.

Yo Ryan Scott. Slow the fuck down. I just got to the part where they talk about the ApacolyPS3. And he tried to bad mouth the system and Sony every chance he could get. As a PS3 owner I think I have the right to be angry at Sony for 24 hours of a useless console(almost useless). What if I'm a very busy and mature adult(which I'm clearly not) and I finally happen to find time to play my PS3 on March 1rst. That's a fucked up situation. But Ryan Scott isn't coming for that perspective. He's just constantly saying "Good job Sony" in that really annoying voice. Every point he tried to make about this situation was factually wrong and he had to be corrected by the other folk on the podcast. Until finally they also ran out of knowledge(which is understandable, no bodies job there is to defend Sony). No trophies where lost. Unless you played the game during these 24 hours you didn't lose any trophy progress at all. And even then, I'm pretty sure you didn't even earn trophies during that time, so you couldn't walk away after acquiring a bunch of trophies and then lose them all.

I know I haven't finished listening to the whole podcast yet but I seriously doubt Ryan revisits this topic... because it is kinda dumb.

EDIT: Ryan if I get all Megaman 10 trophy(out the 11) will I get the prize also?

*SIGH*

When will the year pronunciation arguments finally stop? You may not have pronounced 1999 as "nineteen hundred ninety-nine," but did you say "twenty oh-one" or "twenty oh-two" for 2001 and 2002? I certainly didn't.

And yes, I know I'm perpetuating the argument, but here's an idea: Say it how you want to say it, not how some idiot on the internet wants you to.

The point of saying "twenty ten" is the fact that it has less syllables than "two thousand ten". Saying "twenty ought-one/twenty oh-one" would have the same amount of syllables as "two thousand one", so there were no stones thrown for that.

Seems pretty simple to me.

Baby games are allowed in the competition. The only one thats banned is Fallout 3 for PC because you can pretty much just give yourself achievements.

Alice should be added as a regular cast member. Or she can take Mike Cruz's place when he inevitably disappears again.

Based on Alice's perfomance on this episode, I think if she and Karen were in one of those fights where you glue broken glass to your hands like in the movie Kickboxer, Karen would win.

Alice can't be a regular on the Geekbox, she need her own 1UP podcast! Ask her about the "Amasians Podcast: See Them... Hear Them Now" starring Alice, Thierry "Scooter" Nguyen, Wilbert Mui, and Richard Li.

I would trade Cruz for Mui (whoever that is). Richard and Nelson still need to step up their podcast game, but I always liked them on 1up Show. Hell, get Mikey back (memba him???)

Hmmm... I know that's not a compliment... but I don't know exactly why...

Either way I still think Ryan's opinion was bonkers. Even after listening to it a second time. Also, he had to play Megaman 10 on easy what a lady LOLZ. Naw just kidding. I'm sort of dreading that game. I really want it but it might drive me crazy and cut into my FF13 time. Maybe if I alternate between them I'll stay sane.
