This week on Around the Geek, Warren, Terrell, and Eric talk about Iron Fist, OJ Made in America, and For Honor. This weeks question of the day comes from Warren which is,” If someone you admired did something that goes against your morale code or standards, would you still support them? We would also like to hear from you as well regarding the question or if you have a question for us let us know. We would love to talk about it. Also Terrell is a big stinky doodoo head.
Join us for a brand new episode as we ask the question of is there still classic co opp. Sit back and listen as we talk about some games and pop culture.
As Jeff Winger once famously said, “This is the blow-off class of the semester.” All you have to do is listen as Warren, Terrell, and Eric ring in the new year with a new style. They have done away with the news section replaced it with 3 questions to discuss. What is the state of Final Fantasy going forward?, What is a casual gamer?, and When has a sequel gone too far?. All you have to do is listen and you get full credit for the course.
Listen as we go over the latest game awards and the play station keynote.
