Nerdliest Catch: New Beginnings & Ends

Nerdliest Catch: New Beginnings & Ends

Comic book publishers, please stop publishing so many good titles. I literally had 17 books to read for this week’s column. So I am absolutely not reviewing them all. Sorry, kids. Here are a few highlights, plus some bulleted one-sentence reviews of the others.

GAME CHUMS (ON BOARD): Golem Arcana

Two weeks ago I, along with many of the other contributors here at SharcTank, attended the 2014 Penny Arcade Expo.  I saw a few things there that I wanted to bring to your attention, but I’m getting it to you a little later than intended due to falling ill immediately following the convention. On our ninth episode of Name Your Game we had Mike McCain, an art director at Harebrained Schemes.While…

Lethal League: Was It Worth It?

The second episode of Was It Worth It? season two is finally ready for you to take a swing at! This week, the original cast has returned, as Isaac takes a seat on the bench and Tim and I are reunited on the mic. For this episode, we played Lethal League, a two-dimensional fighter like no other. Is a game we describe as “Pong meets Super Smash Bros” just as bizarre as it sounds? Yes! Did it knock…

Nerdliest Catch: Post-con hangover

Nerdliest Catch: Post-con hangover

Most of SharcTank was at PAX Prime this weekend and I hope a chunk of you were out there as well! Or maybe at Dragon Con? Or somewhere else fantastic? Two days after getting home, I’m still more in the mood to play video games than read comics.

NAME YOUR GAME #8: George Weidman

George is Shocked.

The last three guests we’ve had are game creators, so we figured we should balance it out by having a game reviewer on the show! George Weidman, best known for his work on the YouTube channel Super Bunnyhop, fills Tim and Dane in on his favorites.

This is Name Your Game. If you’re not listening, you’re missing out on talks about System Shock 2, The BioShock series, the Silent Hillseries, game…
