GeekParty Live’s Weekly Game Show Returns!

After last week’s unexpected and unexplained absence, you may have lost hope, but fear not! GeekParty Live’s Weekly Game Show isn’t going anywhere, and we’re back with another episode featuring the delightful Quiplash XL.

Here are some nuggets you can expect to find in this week’s episode:

  • An education on the finer points of pronouncing Wile. E. Coyote’s name.
  • Good ol’ censorship, 1984-style.
  • Animals thinking they are people.
  • A distinct drop in the odd “keyboard typing” sounds that have pervaded past broadcasts.
  • And me, always doing my best to appear to be doing my best.

Don’t worry if you missed us live, because we’ve got you covered with the archived broadcast below! As always feel free to follow us on Twitch and catch us next Sunday at 5pm CST.

GeekParty’s Streaming Game Show Is Now A Series!

Another Sunday is in the books, and you know what that means: GeekParty’s new live-streaming game show is now officially a series!

This week I came equipped with Quiplash XL, to add even more variety to the show, but here are some other things you can expect from the episode:

  • Completely defensible ignorance of brand slogans.
  • An unnerving suspicion that one or more contestants have experience making people “disappear.”
  • A fresh perspective on Mr. Clean’s personal life.
  • Real science in the form of a biochemical compound involved in many metabolic pathways!
  • And yours truly, always doing my best to keep the laughs coming.

If you missed it live, feel free to catch the archived broadcast below and follow us on Twitch to catch the show next Sunday!

Today, GeekParty lost its live-streaming virginity with a brand new game show on Twitch. If you missed the festivities, I have some good news; we used some magical video-recording technologies to capture the entire show. So, you can watch it at your leisure.

If you’re on the fence about pressing the play button, here’s a list of things you can expect from this episode:

  • Waiting for people to join
  • Some stellar hosting by our man, Tyler Workman.
  • Clicking Keyboards.
  • An embarrassing lack of Baconator jokes.
  • A strange obsession with Canada.
  • Racism, obviously, since the internet is filled with truly terrible people.

Tyler’s game show will happen every Sunday. Follow us on Twitch to catch the next episode, along with a handful of other streaming goodies.

The Transformers: Devastation Trailer Fails to Not Suck

transformers devastationIn my book, there’s only been one stellar Transformers game to date: Atari’s PS2 title, which was appropriately titled Transformers. It’s the kind of series that should result in amazing games, but the titles I’ve played have been fairly lackluster. (I know a lot of people liked the War for Cybertron series, but I never found it at all engaging.)

Unfortunately Transformers: Devastation might be another mediocre giant robot game. It’s too early to make any definitive judgements, but from what I’ve seen, this game looks like a generic arena brawler in the vein of the Dragon Ball Z games (apologies to my DBZ-loving brother, Gabe Watkins).

If this trailer accurately represents this game, I doubt it will be up my alley. On the bright side, it probably won’t be royally fucked up as the Michael Bay Transformers movies were.

E3 2015: The Star Wars: Battlefront Trailer Is Far From Forceful

star wars battlefrontI wasn’t sure what to expect from Star Wars: Battlefront ‘s first gameplay trailer. I’m not a fan of the Battlefront games, but initially, I thought this title might change my mind. I was pleased to see a more laidback approach instead of the kind of massive military fights I typically associate with the series. [Read more…]

Bloodborne – How to Beat Rom, the Vacuous Spider, at Moonside Lake

Bloodborne Rom the Vacuous SpiderRom, the Vacuous Spider, is just one of Bloodborne‘s phenomenally designed bosses. Not only does this one require a bit of strategy, but the Moonside Lake setting is stunningly gorgeous to look at.

If you’ve been struggling on this one (she can be pretty tough), here’s a walkthrough that will hopefully make things easier for you.

Rack N Ruin Bomb Swatter Trophy

Seriously. That’s all there is to it.

Rack N Ruin – How to Get the Magic Bag

The magic bag in Rack N Ruin is a really handy item, since it doubles your carrying capacity for a lot of your items, including bombs. In order to get it, you’ll have to first beat Amon to get your lightning magic, then make your way over to the ruins area in the Fetid Field.

There is a locked door toward the southern edge of the ruins, so this will require a key as well. Once you manage to unlock the door and get inside, you’ll have to solve a puzzle to get to the chest.

Rack n RuinThe puzzle can be a bit tricky, but here’s an easy way to solve it:

Rack N Ruin Pyrophobia Trophy – How to Beat Amon Without Using Fire Damage

Rack N Ruin AmonTo get the Pyrophobia Trophy in Rack N Ruin, you must beat the first boss, Amon, without using fire damage. While that sounds like a simple task, it’s complicated by the fact that at this early stage in the game, pretty much all your magic is fire based, even if you managed to purchase the spell book from the witch’s shop. Even your bombs are fire-based, so those are off the table as well.
