There Will Be Geek

Cav, Chani and Mike wittering about geek stuff.

Episode 51 – Area 51

We’re baaaaaaaack! After a long hiatus, and a slight relocation of TWBG Towers (80m to be precise) we return with a look at the role of Area 51 in popular culture and find… a lot less than we thought we would. Maybe it’s a conspiracy. Maybe the government really are hushing everything up. Maybe Naruto running at a secret base […]

Episode 50 – Police Procedurals

This week, we’ve got to drag this one back to the precinct because the Lieutenant is breaking our balls. We’re playing it by our own rules, busting the bad guys and chasing them down back alleys full of boxes and produce. Yes, for Episode 5-0 we’re looking at Police Procedurals. We look at our favourite examples of the genre, and […]

Episode 49 – The Predator Series

Do you like horror franchises? This week we have a doozy. Arnold Scwarzenegger as the Final Girl, Bill Paxton as annoying-douchebag-who-gets-killed, Topher Grace as Really? Him? and Olivia Munn being officially done with this shit. Yes. It’s the various permutations of Predator. We go as deep as we can stomach, and sometimes deeper than that. Plus Cav gets Mouldy and […]

Episode 46 – Worst Christmas

We look into the very worst pop culture offerings that Christmas has to offer, be it TV, Film or Music, getting our urchin hands dirty so you don’t have to. Plus Chani gets her cowboy on, Cav breaks the earth, […]

Although Hitman is quite a venerable series, spanning eighteen years and six games (eight if you count mobile versions Hitman Go and Hitman: Sniper), most would agree that it was with 2016’s episodic soft reboot that it finally found its stride. While the earlier games have their fans, especially 2006’s Blood Money, Hitman 2016 finally saw developer IO Interactive find a […]

Doublejump Reviews Tetris Effect – Doublejump

Although it was greeted with some surprise on its unveiling at this year’s E3, Tetris Effect has been a game long in the making. In the early 2000s, legendary game developer Tetsuya Mizuguchi attempted to get the rights to the genre-defining puzzle game, with the aim of creating a version of Tetris that featured the kind of interactive sound design […]

Disenchantment Review

About halfway through the first episode of Disenchantment, wanderlust-stricken elf Elfo sees his destination, the human city of Dreamland, on the horizon. “Wow!”, he exclaims, “It’s so small! Oh wait, I’m far away!” End scene. In many ways, this joke is emblematic of the show’s debut ten-episode run, recently debuted on Netflix. Disenchantment certainly has the weight of expectation on its […]
